A new Pokemon X and Y trailer was just recently released by Nintendo, confirming information revealed in CoroCoro magazine that some Pokemon will now be able to evolve into a new Mega form of itself.
Thus, Mega Evolution is born, a new transformation that certain Pokemon can undergo during battle allowing them to tap into ‘certain reserves of strength and power’ remarkably more powerful than their original evolution form. So far MegaBlaziken, MegaAbsol, MegaMawile, MegaMewtwo, MegaLucario and MegaAmpharos have been revealed, and it seems scans have hinted that there will be a new gym leader who holds the key to understanding these new forms of Pokemon.
In order to pull off “Mega Evolution” trainers will need a certain item called a ‘Mega Stone’, which will exist for all Pokemon that can Mega Evolve.
Three new Pokemon were also revealed: Dedenne, Horubii, and Meekuru, all of which were outed via scans on Serebii, where you will find more screenshots of the upcoming game.
Pokemon X and Pokemon Y are released worldwide on October 12th for 3DS.
