Pokemon ORAS QR codes for Volcanion, Hoopa

By Alan Ng - Feb 24, 2015

Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire players are finding new ways to unlock unreleased Pokemon before Game Freak and Nintendo have the chance to release them officially.

We already know that an official Hoopa event is on the way to the game soon, but once again there is a new method to put him in the game right now – thanks to Pokemon ORAS QR codes.

Some are calling it a Pokemon ORAS exploit, others are calling it modifying mechanics that are already inside the game.

Either way, players are asking how to use Pokemon ORAS QR codes and there’s already several guides available online with full instructions.


A dedicated Pokemon QR code Reddit thread has been set up and it includes images of codes for the likes of Hoopa and Shiny Volcanion – the latter of which is the last of the three leaked XY Pokemon with Diancie and Hoopa, but still hasn’t been confirmed as official yet.

The important thing to note is that these QR codes are hacked Pokemon and as a result, Game Freak will probably remove this method from the game in a future update.

There’s also a debate ongoing that using these QR codes to bring rare Pokemon to your game, will prevent you from placing them inside the Poke Bank – so bear that in mind.

Either way, this can be done right now without using any third-party software of any kind – so everyone is jumping on the bandwagon unsurprisingly.

Let us know if the above QR codes worked for you and whether you are ok with having ‘hacked’ Pokemon in your database.

  • Rachel

    My 2ds updated and it won’t work plz update these codes
    If they are could I be emailed them at nooboloob123@gmail.com

  • Marc Tanner

    The first step should be to say start up pokemon alpha sapphire and make sure the 1st spot in box 1 is clear.

  • Marc Tanner

    Whern it tells you to restart, you just click on the acknowledgement. You shouldn’t actually restart. What I do from start to finish is: 1) start Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. 2) hit the home key to see the menu. 3) Press the internet button. 4) When it starts, clear the cache and delete cookies. 5) Press Home key to exit from internet. 6) Press L + R buttons at same time to start Camera. 7) Press QR code at lower left. 8) Line up 3DS with the code on my Laptop until I get an html link on bottom shows up. 9) Select options to have the page load up on the 3DS. When it loads, you see a black screen that tells you it’s doing the code. 10) Wait for it show the error (I think that’s where you are.) Press acknowledgement. This should show you the main menu and you should still have RESUME at bottom of the screen. You press the RESUME option and go back in the game. I go to the pokiemon box 1 and see what the code put in the game. Remember this is the memory of the 3DS and not the cartridge. If I like it, I will move it to box 30/31 and either save the game or start process above back over for the next poke. Make sure to save at some point if you like what you got so it will write to the card. Otherwise, you lose what’s in there when you turn off the 3DS.

  • Marc Tanner

    I’ve tried it 4 times so far. Got Hoopa, Mew, Yveltal, and Xerneas. Works like a charm. I have PokeSav and have used it, but this is WAY simpler. I don’t know exactly how this works, but as long as you follow the instructions, it works just fine. 10/10 for me
