Pokémon News: Mega Evolution Brings Mega Changes to Pokémon Battles

Pokémon fans will soon be able to experience a new way to battle in Pokémon X and Y with the introduction of Mega Evolutions.

Mega Evolutions are a new way for Pokémon to evolve, except these evolutions can only occur during battle. Only certain Pokémon can go through a Mega Evolution but when they do, their stats, appearance, and sometimes type, will change. Whether it’s an increase in stats, a menacing new look, or type change, Mega Evolutions appear to have the power to turn the battle around. After a battle ends, Mega Pokémon will revert to their regular state.

To Mega Evolve, Pokémon must be holding a Mega Stone. Each Pokémon capable of Mega Evolution will have their own Mega Stone to find. The best example I can give is the upcoming distribution of Torchic. Starting October 12 – the game’s release date – players will be able to download a Torchic holding a Blazikenite, the Mega Stone needed to become Mega Blaziken.

So far, only six Pokémon have been confirmed to have a Mega Evolution. These six Pokémon are Ampharos, Absol, Mawile, Mewtwo, Lucario, and of course, Blaziken.

Rumors about this Pokémon are spiraling around the Internet, and the consensus is that Nintendo is answering a long time fan myth by introducing Mewthree. However, there is no official name for this Pokémon yet, so the mystery will have to live on a little longer.
