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.
