    What do you guys think about Soaring and Mirage Islands that contain random legendaries? I love it so much. It's such a beautiful feature and it's just really refreshing and lovely.

    I love Soaring <3 The day music is beautiful, while the night music is peaceful and soothing :) I really like the sky battles in Hoenn, and the Mirage islands. I already caught Azelf and Mesprit as well <3

    Trying to catch Mesprit now, but it won't get in the ball! This little guy is so annoying, haha.

    I am having sooo much fun with soaring into all sorts of places in the Hoenn region. I don't have to use fly anymore which is also amazing. =3 The mirage islands and caves are so mysterious. I've already caught Mesprit and Reshiram

    Its really neat how you have to have certain Pokémon in your party to activate many of the spots. Already caught a lot of them but I still have plenty to go!

    Soaring is amazing! I love the music and just flying over the region of my childhood. It really made me happy just to go about over the towns and cities. The mirage spots were really interesting to encounter and it really added the excitement of what I would meet next.

    I also really love how the day/night music changes too <3 Soaring is just so lovely and they did EVERYTHING possible right with the feature. Well done, Nintendo. You did good kid, you did good.

    Honestly the soaring looks nice but they did disappoint me greatly with only having it available for one Pokémon just like X and Y with riding on the back of ryhorn.With soaring they had the chance to build on it and make it better but i guess it either required too much programming or they held themselves back,I guess it makes a difference that I am a die-hard Lugia fan.

    When do you get the Soar feature or is it an HM? When can you Soar?

    I really like soaring, sometimes I fly around on Latias/Latios just because I like or just circle Hoenn a few times before I land at my destination.

    It's fun to explore the skies above Hoenn with so many cool Pokémon to catch - really makes it worthwhile. I'm especially happy that it's not something you can "conquer" by soaring around on a single day, you'd have to put time into it and look around across several weeks most likely. Still have so many legends I need to get.. and that final TM. ;_;

    I like it! And I like that you can do it even if Latias/Latios aren't in your party. Then you can find all sorts of different Pokémon after beating the e4.

    I'm starting an army of Larvesta.

    Oh! I really like the concept! We actually have a chance to collect all the legendaries! And then there's the fact that we are able to find rare Pokémon not native to Hoenn.

    I love it so much, it's one of my favorite features in the game. It really lets you see the Hoenn region in a way that's never been done before, and it's really fluid and fun! I love how you fly on the back of Latias/Latios, and the region itself looks beautiful like that. I also really like the Mirage Islands, they're really neat, and done in a way that is a lot better than the original Mirage Island in RSE, haha. I use Soaring a lot, even if it's just to get from place to place.

    I really like it! The items that can be found on the islands are nice, if not a little annoying to get, but I like how random it is. Even with Cresselia, it's a slight pain, but then again legendaries shouldn't be too easy to find. ^w^

    Soaring is great. The act of finding random islands and Legendaries is honestly a little annoying and repetitive after a while.

    It's pretty fun to just fly around on the back of Latios/Latias, just spinning around and going up and down dodging around the mountains. Basically just sightseeing from above, in the skies!
