The world of Pokémon keeps getting more and more changes and new features. The most recent new feature in the long list of new things in the upcoming games, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, is Mega Evolution, which was revealed last week. Several Pokémon were confirmed to be able to undergo this transformation but, since the announcement, Kangaskhan was added to the list, and now the list amounts to: Ampharos, Absol, Mawile, Mewtwo, Blaziken, Lucario, and Kangaskhan.

These Pokémon all will be able to undergo Mega Evolution during battle while holding a Mega stone. The exact nature of this transformation is unknown currently but, thanks to Gematsu, we have a bit more information about the outcome of the transformations for the first three of these Pokémon. See the details inside!

The details that we know are listed below, and a gallery showcasing Mega Ampharos, Mega Absol, and Mega Mawile can be seen below that. A trailer featuring numerous Mega Evolutions can be found here.

  • Mega Ampharos – When Ampharos Mega Evolves into Mega Ampharos, its head and tail are covered with white fur in this new, gallant appearance. When Ampharos undergoes Mega Evolution, it gains the Dragon type in addition to its original Electric type. When Mega Ampharos increases the amount of electrical energy within itself, the red orbs on its body and fur emit a strong light. It becomes and Electric / Dragon-type and has the ability “Mold Breaker.”
  • Mega Absol – The increased energy that courses through Absol’s body upon Mega Evolving makes its fur stand on end, giving it the appearance of wings. It has the ability “Magic Bounce.”
  • Mega Mawile – When Mawile undergoes Mega Evolution, its trademark huge mouth has multiplied, and now there are two great maws to contend with! It even seems that Mega Mawile is able to control each maw independently. It has the ability “Huge Power.”

I personally am not too sure how I feel about Mega Evolution just yet, but it keeps sounding cooler and cooler. It is unknown just how many Pokémon will be able to Mega Evolve, but hopefully we will not have to wait long to hear more about this mysterious transformation. Here’s hoping for a Mega Charizard.

Our Verdict

Noah Cherry
My first gaming memory is watching my older brother play Donkey Kong 64 and staring at the screen in amazement. From that point on I wanted in on the fun, and it drove me to become a gamer and took me to where I am today. I am very passionate about gaming and love the opportunity I have here to use my writing skills and combine them with this passion. Nintendo has my heart, but I expand onto all platforms, owning many gaming consoles and playing a wide variety of games. My favorite game of all time is Super Mario 64, with Okami coming in as a close second. Kingdom Hearts is probably my favorite overall series of games, and Wind Waker is my favorite Zelda game, although I believe Ocarina of Time to be the "best" one. I also loved Spirit Tracks. Aside from gaming, I am a student and heavily participate in Choir programs. I also participate in musicals from time to time, whether it be through stage crew or acting. For those concerned, I am a cat person, not a dog person.
