Camerupt’s Mega Stone (Cameruptite) will be given to you at different points in the post-game of ORAS, depending on which version you’re playing.
In Omega Ruby, Maxie will give you the Cameruptite in the Team Magma Hideout during the Delta Episode. You’ll unlock access to the Delta Episode after beating the Hoenn League and becoming Champion.
In Alpha Sapphire, Magma Leader Maxie will give you the Cameruptite when you first arrive at the Battle Resort. The Battle Resort is an island in southeast Hoenn that can be accessed only after finishing the Delta Episode.
This guide offers a step-by-step tutorial on how to get the Cameruptite in both versions of the game.
Cameruptite Location (Omega Ruby)
After you become the E4 Champion, you can play through the Delta Episode.
This is about a meteor that’s headed straight for Hoenn, and it’s up to you to stop it.
In the Delta Episode, you will eventually have to go back to the Team Magma Hideout, which is in the easternmost part of Lilycove City. To get Camerupt’s Mega Stone, you’re going to have to explore this place again to find Zinnia and Maxie.
You can also expect to encounter and fight Team Magma Grunts along the way.
To get started, make your way to Lilycove City’s east beach.
Step 1: Enter Team Magma’s Hideout using HM03 Surf.
Step 2: Go straight up through the main entrance.
Step 3: Use the warp tile in the room’s northwest corner.
Step 4: Once you’ve defeated the Grunts in this next room, take the stairs on the right side leading down.
Step 5: Then in this new room, go to the very right side and step on the warp tile here.
Step 6: Use the warp tile in the room’s northwest corner.
Step 7: Then go to the next warp tile south of where you are right now.
Step 8: There are actually a couple different ways to reach Maxie’s room, but they both require the same number of steps. So we’ll show you our preferred method.
Start by stepping on the warp tile on the left.
Step 9: This teleports you to a warp on the right-hand wall. From here, move to the left and take the middle warp tile.
Step 10: Then move back to the right and take the rightmost warp tile.
Step 11: Then finally, you’ll want to go around the middle warp and take the very rightmost warp tile.
Step 12: This will bring you into the final room where you can approach Zinnia and Maxie to initiate a short cutscene.
Step 13: After Zinnia leaves, Maxie will ask Tabitha to give you Camerupt’s Mega Stone.
Cameruptite Location (Alpha Sapphire)
After completing the Delta Episode, Norman in Littleroot Town will give you the S.S. Ticket. The S.S. Ticket enables you to travel to the Battle Resort aboard the S.S. Tidal.
When you first arrive at Battle Resort, you’ll be greeted by your rival Wally. Magma Leader Maxie and his Admins will also be present, and Maxie will give you the Cameruptite after a brief conversation.
If you’ve yet to reach Battle Resort, first you’ll need to reach the harbor in either Slateport or Lilycove City once you’ve obtained the S.S. Ticket:
Step 1: Show the attendant your ticket and select The Battle Resort.
Step 2: When you arrive at the Battle Resort, speak with Wally to start a short cutscene.
Step 3: Then after the cutscene, speak with Magma Leader Maxie to obtain the Cameruptite.
Is Mega Camerupt Worth Using?
Mega Camerupt is a tanky wallbreaker that can easily dispatch many common threats thanks to a high Special Attack, Sheer Force, and potent STAB (Same-type Attack Bonus) moves like Fire Blast and Earth Power.
Mega Camerupt’s Fire Blast can typically OHKO many offensive Pokémon that don’t resist it.
So as a fire-type on your team, it could certainly be worth using Mega Camerupt.
Tip: When Camerupt Mega Evolves into Mega Camerupt, it changes its ability to Sheer Force. This ability removes any additional effects/side effects of certain moves (like Fire Blast) while of boosting those moves’ damage by 30%.
With all this said, Mega Camerupt has a couple of fatal flaws that make it difficult to stay competitive.
For starters, due to its appalling Speed, it is almost impossible to attack before getting attacked.
Mega Camerupt’s typing is also troublesome. Because despite having several resistances, it’s weak against Ground- and Water-type, moves the latter being a 4x weakness. Both Ground-types and Water-types are fairly common, so it’s definitely a weakness worth considering.
But even so, Mega Camerupt excels as a Trick Room sweeper.
Mega Camerupt is typically the fastest Pokémon when Trick Room is active because of its 20 base Speed. Teams that are unprepared for this specific tactic can be easily swept by it.
