Pokemon & Religion - Did You Know Gaming? Feat. Jimmy Whetzel
 
In the French version of the game, when challenging Brawly, he says, "ai découvert le secret de la vraie puissance en fixant un Nautile pendant des jours et des jours." This means "I discovered the secret of true power by staring at a Helix [Fossil] for days and days…" This is a reference to Twitch Plays Pokemon: a livestream where viewers were able to play the game via commenting. Due to the chaotic inputs, viewers would often accidentally open up the items menu and attempt to use the Helix Fossil to no effect. Viewers joked about the recurring mistake, saying they were "consulting" the Helix Fossil as if it were a religious oracle.

In an interview with Nintendo Dream magazine, series character designer Ken Sugimori stated that the character Aarune was given a Flygon since it was capable of learning both Secret Power and Fly, which were key to finding Secret Bases.
He also revealed that the reason Mega Flygon was not included in both Pokemon X & Y and Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, was because Game Freak had trouble trying to complete a design, so it was dropped.

There is a man in Pacifilog town who says "They say, here in Hoenn, there are places called Mirage spots. One does not simply walk into a Mirage spot. Not to mention that these places also appear and disappear mysteriously." This is a reference to the phrase "One does not simply walk into Mordor", a quote from Boromir in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.

If the player successfully brings a Pokemon all the way from Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire, or Emerald into Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, then takes that Pokemon to the Game Director in Lilycove Motel, the Director will give them a diploma showing multiple different sprites from Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald. The player can then hang this up in their secret base as a wall decoration, showing the original sprites of Brendan and May.

A map can be found in one of the houses in Dewford Town that looks incredibly similar to a map featured on Pokemon fansite "Serebii.net", but flipped horizontally. The map is from the site's "Pokéarth" section, which shows the position of many regions from various Pokemon games, such as the Kanto and Sinnoh regions.

While playing through the special demo of the game, there's a small chance that the player will able to activate two secret missions. The first being an island with no wild Pokemon, but a double battle with May against Team Aqua or Magma. The second being a maze like island with a man who will give the player a Nugget.

Completing the second mission will open up more of Mossdeep City, including Steven's house.

Two old women could be found in the hot spring of Lavaridge Town in the original release of Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire. They were removed in the 3DS remakes, possibly because of the lewd nature of the scene. In Japan, it is common for people to bathe naked in hot springs, called "onsen", split by gender. In the original games' release, the male trainer was able to bathe with the old women, while an old man is also seen looking over the spring.
