For all the Pokemon ORAS fans, there's big news to follow up on, as far as a new in-game patch is concerned. There's now a new patch update for the Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire titles of the immensely popular Pokemon franchise.

In case you aren't aware, the update has already rolled out to players and brings in new challenges and adjustments in order provide an upped overall experience, while also making it much more fun and more engaging for Pokemon trainers.

The patch for both the games is somewhat huge, but still remain mandatory updates. This means that fans won't be able to access the newly updated online features of both the games as long as the patch is not in place.

However, once the new patch is downloaded and updated, gamers will have access to online features such as the Wonder Trade option, connecting to the Global Trade Station, redeeming Mystery Gifts, using the Game Sync option, and even connecting with other fans with the help of the Player Search System.

The newly released update – patch 1.4 for both Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire – has also been facilitated to include the Pokemon X and Pokemon Y versions. It is also interesting to note that the new patch is only the fifth one to be released for the games since the release of version 1.0.

As far as downloading the patch and updating the games are concerned, a Christian Today post states that similar to the previous game updates, "players can manually download and update the titles to the newest version over the air. Players should start by first starting the game while connected to the Internet."

Following this, a message should appear on the screen, prompting players to update the title. Players can then tap the Update button or press Y and select Download Now, followed by Yes to begin the download process.

Once the update has been successfully done, the title should show the newest version 1.4, confirming that the update has been carried out correctly. You can also check out the change-log for the update by selecting View Details in Nintendo's eShop.
