[UPD2] It seems more leaks are coming any moment, as another leaker has gotten their hands on Corocoro and is uploading some pages. New, clear, and full versions of the scans we’ve seen have now been revealed, though there seems to be more to go.

[UPD1] The PokémonKorea official site has updated with details on a playable demo for XY coming to Korea. In this, they report about the Mega Evolutions. This means that Mega Evolutions are confirmed, and any other information should be taken as real as well.

This month’s issue of Corcoro has begun leaking. With new Pokémon and more! Keep checking back as we update with translations! 

On Mega Evolutions

  • “Mega” Pokemon; These new supercharged versions of their previous ones are NOT traditional evolutions or forms, but happen through a “Mega Evolution” process.
  • Mega evolutions are ONLY accessible  during battle.
  • A “Megastone” seems to be a collective term for the held items used to Mega-evolve each Pokémon. In the case of Blaziken, its Megastone is called “Blazikenite”.
  • One of the gym leaders, Coruni, hold the key to these new Mega-lutions.
  • Mega Pokémon have stat changes: Lucario gets an Attack stat boost, whilst Absol gets a boost to both Attack/Speed.
  • Unknown what the stat changes for other Mega Pokémon are.
  • Mega evolutions seem to awakened temporarily in battle by holding a megastone for some Pokémon.

Getting ‘Mega’ versions are:

  • Blaziken (Fire/Fighting, ability: Speed Boost)
  • Lucario (Steel/Fighting, ability: Adaptability)
  • Ampharos (Electric/DRAGON, ability: Mold Breaker)
  • Mawile (Steel/Fairy, ability:Huge Power)
  • Mewtwo (Psychic, ability: Insomnia)
  • Absol (Dark, ability:Magic Bounce)
  • Not all Pokemon will get Mega versions.

More could be revealed!

New Pokémon, Miscellaneous

  •  Meekuru, a Grass-type Gogoat prevolution has Sap Sipper for ability.
  •  Horubii, a Normal-type rabbit-ish Pokémon, known as the “Digging” Pokémon has a new ability called “Cheek Pouch,” or Pickup.
  • Dedenne, an Electric/Fairy-type Pokémon which is the “Antennae” Pokémon, has a new ability called “Cheek Pouch,” or Pickup.
  • Speed Boost Torchic will be distributed with it’s “Mega Stone”; This Speed Boost Torchic with “Blazikenite” Distribution starts from the release date(October 12th) to January 15th, 2014.
  • Although cut off, what seems to be Super Training is mentioned! As previous leaks have pointed at, completing these games seems to raise Effort Values for the Pokémon that participate.
  • Also mentioned is the Master Tower, which has a connection to Mega Pokémon.

Also confirmed is that next month’s Corocoro is to show even more Mega Evolutions, alongside an updated type chart to show off Fairy-type.

  • NightSlash

    Got to admit I’m not sure I’m a fan of all this

  • Jack

    This is the first thing ever in pokemon that I’ve actively been against. I really hope “Mega-evolution” is fake. Not impressed at “the scoop of the century” thus far.

    • I like it, I think it could give even more variation and strategy to the series and make some useless/forgotten Pokémon relevant again.

  • Pangotcha

    Guys—-mega dunsparce evolution!

  • Jack

    It just doesn’t make sense that Mewtwo can “mega-evolve” too as the whole thesis behind legendaries is that they stand alone and are powerful enough to not have to go through an evolution process. Please be fake 🙁

    • True, also the original Mewtwo looks more epic and ‘mega’ than this one.

  • So how about those 4th Stage Evos lolloolol Blaziken took OU to a whole new level

    So does that mean the 2ch leak was true since it also talked about Dedenne?

    AND OMG THAT PIKACHU COUSIN IS KAWAIIII DESUU

  • themonster6893

    I find it really weird that they’re willing to mess with a starter like this. Not saying it’s good or bad, just saying that they usually leave the starters the way they are.

  • Devon Waslusky

    I think this has something to do with the whole “DNA” theme. Like, this is their perfect formes that evolution would have led them up to or something, idk. Or maybe these Pokemon all had the evolutionary potential to become Legendary Pokemon, and these “Mega” formes are their unlocked potential and they all technically become legendary.

    • I like the idea of regular Pokémon being able to hold their own against legends. I know that would make legendaries somewhat pointless, but it would make the competitive seen much more interesting.

  • Scammel

    Close inspection suggests these ‘evos’ are linked to either Xerneas or Yveltal aesthetically – DNA manipulations? X and Y chromosomes?

  • CL

    Hmm I’m not sure what to think about what we saw. It seems interesting with the whole “Mega” thing. I’ve never been against anything in Pokemon so I’ll probably end up liking it, if its real, at the end lol

  • Nintendalek42

    Fake. Or at least I very much hope so. Messing with legendaries and starter lines to make the idiotic ancient fanboy dream of “pokégods” true is an absolutely awful idea. I very much suspect this is fake, and if not I’m extremely dissapointed.

    • IAmUnanimousInThat

      I think it’s a interesting idea that should be looked into. Why should gamefreak cut themselves short to preserve the legacy. If they believe they have a good idea on their hands and want to execute it, then they should be able to do so. I look forward with an open mind. Also I’m a little bias. I love blaziken.

      • Nintendalek42

        I also love blaziken, I just don’t want it seperated from the other starters in what I see as a blasphemous digimonification. You’re perfectly entitled to your opinion though.
        Also, Absol and Mawile need evolutions, not mega-crapification.

        • IAmUnanimousInThat

          Well I see your point. Perhaps they’ll have one for some other starters. One for all of them or one from each gen. Or this could be all fake. I am waiting for the complete picture.

          • gronodon

            hopefully they won’t be called mega-blaziken and have a REAL pokemon name maybe but that’s just me 😉

            but seriously i do like this leak, i hope this istrue since gogoat’s pre-evo is revealed

    • I think it’s quite exciting. I mean it will make the competitive scene more interesting and it will make some useless/forgotten Pokémon relevant again. But I somewhat agree with the starters/legendaries.

  • Gooner4eva

    Please be fake!! Please be fake!!

  • Joe C ; ☆

    I’m hoping for once that this isn’t legit, otherwise my expectations of X and Y will go way down..

    • What’s the problem with it? Adds more strategy and variation 🙂

  • Wes

    I feel like I’ve seen the name Horubii somewhere before… It’s killing me!!

    • NightSlash

      One of the trademarked names

      • Wes

        Omg thank you!

  • KingdraKing

    I’M PRAYING THAT THIS WHOLE “MEGA-POKEMON” BUSINESS IS A FAKE

  • RoaringEcho

    I love the design of MegaBlaziken, but this must be fake. Yanmega’s Japanese name is literally called Megayanma, and when put with MegaBlaziken, MegaLucario, and the others, it doesn’t make any sense. I’m calling bs, although I really like it. 🙁

  • FrenzyBurn

    Please be real. But the designs are bad

  • Senoel the Turtwick

    Pokemon is turning into Ben 10: Ultimate Alien!!!

  • Mark James Colgan

    I know this bizarre, but I will like it in the end, come look at that new Absol *Droool*

  • RoaringEcho

    Btw, I’ve learned that by seeing many Fake Scans that any scan that is close up like it is on MegaMawile, it’s almost always fake.

    http://www.serebii.net/corocoro8134.jpg

    • MuhFugginMoose

      Yup, clearly fake.

      • Anonymous

        He did say “Almost always”.

        • MuhFugginMoose

          Haha, it was confirmed anyways.

  • FrenzyBurn

    Let the concept at least be real, but the designs, no

  • It seems really fake.

    • FrenzyBurn

      I hate life. Darn fell for another fake scan. Sigh

    • RoaringEcho

      I think the Gogoat Pre-Evo is too generic. Same for the Rabbit. I like the hamster, though.

      • IAmUnanimousInThat

        Doesn’t it look like the pokemon we saw in the background of lumiouse city, that people thought was a gogoat pre-evolution.

        • RoaringEcho

          Mmm, not really. That one was super small, like the around the size of Mareep. This one appears to be the size of Flaaffy (based on the artwork), but the actual statistics of it’s height may actually disprove my theory.

        • Maybe. Yet, look at this image. It looks like they just copied that and that art is similar to what a lot of people drew. Check out DeviantArt and search go-goat pre-evolution. You will find it. There all similar.

          • Exhibit A

            That doesn’t mean anything. People based fanart on the Pokemon we saw in Lumiose. If it is indeed real, than it makes sense they would bear some similarity to the actual Pokemon.

    • Nintendalek42

      I agree, the more I look at it, the more fake it seems. The rabbit and pika-clone are generic, the gogoat prevo is just the trailer one, and for some reason i’m pretty sure I’ve seen that mawile thing as an imagined evo somewhere. Besides, isn’t it a bit too early for a corocoro leak?

    • RoaringEcho

      It’s all real. The cover of Corocoro confirms it.

  • DineshThePoet

    Serebii almost never posts fake stuff. Weird.

    • It seems like this is fake.

    • RoaringEcho

      Don’t let that fool you, they have before, and then quickly removed it.

      • FrenzyBurn

        That really stings to know the concept is fake.

  • Guest

    I love how everybody denies that things could be real when they don’t want it to be the case – like when the final gen V starter evolutions were leaked. Still…this does seem fishy. I mean, that Gogoat pre-evo looks suspiciously similar to fan art that I’ve seen before…

  • Reece

    All I’m saying is, if this is real, Lucario will definitely become my favourite Pokemon

  • Turi

    There’s a blaziken mega evolution, it could mean that maybe we would be able to get starters from gen 3.

  • FrenzyBurn

    I am so gullible.

  • Commander A.Cheez

    I really want this to be fake

  • Arkygi

    God, I really hope this is fake.
    Is like, Pokémon has officially became Digimon .-.
    Mega versions of previous pokémon, seriously?

    • Nothing wrong with Digimon… Better than Pokemon in terms of TV show.

      • Arkygi

        Yes, I totally agree, I’m very fond of Digimon actually. But I don’t like the idea of Pokémon resembling Digimon…

      • gronodon

        NOPE. YOU SIR ARE DONE

  • Berba

    I really hate the idea of ‘mega evolution’ it just doesn’t fit in with pokemon at all! more digimon kind of thing… if this turn out to be true i’m very disappointed

  • kaialone

    If this is real, it´s a lot like the X-Anitboy from the Digimon franchise

    • I have noticed this generation takes some of what Digimon did… Hmmm…

  • WAIT. Didn’t Pokemon confirm that Mewtwo had a new form. Awakened Mewtwo was its new form. Pokemon never said that Mewtwo will be evolving. It was a form change. Now this scan is truly fake. Also, if you see in the Movie Mewtwo switches its form. So, now this scan is 100% Fake. (This is the same post on JungleTalk, I’m just putting the info here)

    • FrenzyBurn

      True…

    • Ben

      Not to mention that the depicted Gogoat pre-evolution is identical to some fan art that I saw before.

      • Yea, let me go search Deviantart really quick!

      • Randomtester

        i saw that fan art too

      • Wolfgangg

        But they also showed the pre-evolution in one of the trailers, which is where people were making the fan art from.

    • FactFinder300

      It’s implied that they are not proper evos. And that they’ll transform in battle

  • Senoel the Turtwick

    Someone out there is laughing their butt off, whether it’s a Gamefreak/Nintendo employee or not has yet to be determined.

  • Majd Almahmoud

    OMG 4the evolution line Mega evolution that’s so awesome
    Blaziken Lucario Ampharos and Absol all evolve through an evolution called Mega evolution this is the scoop of the century the Corocoro was talking about and OMG it’s so awesome

    • FrenzyBurn

      It is deemed fake. Sorry.

      • Heatran5400

        How do you know?

    • Heatran5400

      Third you mean. Basic, 1st Evo and 2nd Evo. Now the 3rd Evo also called megaevolution

      • Majd Almahmoud

        no it’s 4th because i said evolution line not just evolution

  • Guest

    Mega evolutions confirmed?

  • Mark James Colgan

    Maybe some pokemon have awakened forms ??

    • Maybe. But as I stated below. Mewtwo got a form change not a evolution.

      • Mark James Colgan

        True!! If it is true I just hope not every 3rd stage pokemon gets a Megaevolution

        • Yea! Yet, if it is really it seems all starters will have it! Also, the scans are to early.

          • Mark James Colgan

            Yea just a tad, if it is fake someone put a lot of work into this haha.

      • Edward Sam

        That’s true.

  • spencer

    MegaMewtwo? I thought it was already called Awakened Forme Mewtwo??

  • Edward Sam

    People thought fairy type was fake too and it turned out to be true.

    • Yea. But no-body rumored “Mega” Pokemon. :/ Yet, if you read my comment below. You will know why it is fake.

  • N

    Maybe mega evolution happens when a pokemon reaches Lv 100… Could be way off but just a thought

    • It is not needed. Pokemon now just seems like Digimon.

  • zeldaoreonerd

    as i said in the previous thread: The pictures don’t match up if you look at them… in the pic with the
    gogoat pre evo and the rodent and bunny, you see “mega-absols”‘s
    paws…. but it was in the top section of the page.Plus there is a pic
    of game play that they didn’t show, but why? Yet another reason it is
    fake.

    • Nintendalek42

      You also see his head next to the gym leader on the gym leader scan. If that doesn’t scream fake, corocoro sure folds in strange ways.

    • anonstricker

      Wow… There can’t be TWO pages… One showing gameplay.. and one showing the Mega Evolutions….

      • RoaringEcho

        They normally have six… we’ll probably be getting more, since this is the “scoop of the century”

  • RoaringEcho

    If this is real, that means they can Mega Evolve backwards since in Mewtwo Prologue episode, Mewtwo switches back and forth.

  • zeldaoreonerd

    so apparently we have a gym leader that is the key to understanding mega-evolutions? i’m calling this super fake… Nice try though

  • DineshThePoet

    As someone is Smogon mentioned, the Rat and the Rabbit correspond with the article we had a while back: http://pokejungle.net/2013/07/17/speculation-14-new-xy-pokemon-revealed/

  • Caitlin

    Ugh I hate to say it but this is just plain awful! Messing with starter evos and chucking in random forms is just plain wrong. This is really bad imo why couldn’t they have just gave us that absol and Mawile and Absol evos?! The only thing good about this is the new cute pokemon revealed look awesome but they’re overshadowed by this awful mega rubbish 🙁

    • Check out my comment below. You will know this scan is 100% Fake. Its about Mewtwo. 😉

  • ChimcharDude

    Mawile, Digivolve to… MEGAMAWILE!

  • FrenzyBurn

    If this is fake, the person who made this, well lets just say (again) no jury would convict me

  • themonster6893

    IDK….. the more images that show up, the more I’m inclined to believe it’s real. Either way I don’t think I’ll be disappointed.

  • Edward Sam

    Now that I think about it, the creators would never do something as illogical as this. As somebody mentioned below, it was already confirmed that Mewtwo is an Awakened form and it was demonstrated as such in the movie. Giving one of the starters a Megaevolution would also disrupt the continuity of the series. They would have to give Megaevolutions to every single starter to balance it out.

  • Exhibit A

    The fact that they called Mewtwo new form a form change before does not mean this scan is certainly fake. Mega-evolution des seem to be somewhere between form change and evolution. I still have my doubts, but we can’t say for sure it’s fake.

  • zeldaoreonerd

    just checked serebii again… A mega stone held by a torchic so it becomes a mega blaziken??? nice try

  • BTW it is even more fake. The 3D Model in this image is off. Also, the text box is wrong.

    • Randomtester

      this might actually be real

    • TheNintendoChip

      Also, the corocoro scans aren’t normally this zoomed in and blurry c:

      • ChimcharDude

        Maybe the leaker got so excited about the possibility of MegaPokemon they got all flustered and couldn’t stop shaking form excitement/shock :’)

      • BTW, the background is from Grants Gym 😉

        • ChimcharDude

          I do hope these are fake, but we sure are all gonna feel stupid if they’re real…

    • RoaringEcho

      Does it say that she is Rock Type? She looks Fighting Type to me.

    • PhoenixRa

      Grant has never been confirmed as a Rock-type gym leader…also, the scans are 100% confirmed

      • Yea. I saw from Serebii. Now Pokemon is Digimon.

  • NightSlash

    It’s legit

    • Randomtester

      how do you know iamtheleaker

      • NightSlash

        The gym leader screenshots, art style etc are all way too convincing to be fake. I hope it isn’t real but I can’t see that being the case 🙁

  • Miner

    I seriously don’t see any evidence pointing to this being fake…

  • FrenzyBurn

    Maybe as a way for they inconsivable thinking of making 3 fire/fighting starters, they are making them mega evovled(now that I think about it that would be total bs)

  • Mark James Colgan

    Serebii posted more info, it’s real guys.

    • Did you see the gym leader. They text box in the art is wrong. Her drawing is really off. Also, the background is from Grant’s gym. Grant seems like he is the Rock type.

  • ChimcharDude

    A new image has appeared showing a Gym Leader on rollerskates, with a gameplay screenshot… The more images appear, the more legit this seems! If this is a fake, it may just be the best we’ve ever seen

    • Her face is wrong. Also, the text box is wrong too.

      • Edward Sam

        The text box was the first thing I noticed. We haven’t seen one like that in trailers nor screenshots of the game.

        • Yea, compare it to this.

    • CherubiGold

      i think this one is legit and the others are fake. look closely, see those brown things looks like Oorotto legs

      • Wes

        Where?

        • CherubiGold

          at the top of the scan.

        • CherubiGold

          top of the scan

    • funchu,

      if she’s real, maybe she’s a fighting type gym leader. that looks like a mienshao skull.

      • ChimcharDude

        Wow, dark

      • It’s a helmet you know. XD

        • funchum

          yeah, but it does look like a mienshao skull xD

          • Yea! It looks like one!

  • Miner

    How could have Pokebeach’s leak not let us know about this???

    • Maybe! They know or think it is fake.

  • Omojuze-san

    If the Mega-Evolution thing is real, then I’m really dissapointed, cuz I was (and I think most of you, my fellow PokeTrainers) thinking that there are only max three stage evo and they could’ve better done this as a form change or they should’nt do it at all!

    • TheNintendoChip

      From what it seems like (and I am totally against this, and I don’t think it’s real), when a pokemon (let’s say combusken) is holding a “mega stone” and levels up to 36+ it would evolve into MegaBlaziken (how mewtwo would go to MegaMewtwo though, I have no idea)

    • I’ve always liked the idea of another stage, but each to their own 🙂

  • PokeNazi

    New event from Oct12 – Jan15, Torchic with mega stone. Hope its worldwide if this ‘mega’ crap is true 😛

  • Randomtester

    you guys as of today i think i might not actually play pokemon x and y

    • PokeNazi

      nope regardless, its a pokemon game 😛

    • Don’t let one feature put you off, there’s plenty to like about the games.

  • Mark James Colgan

    Torchic holds a mega stone to evolve into Megablaziken this makes more sense

    • Berba

      A Blaziken Knight which is said to be a Mega Stone

    • Randomtester

      i think the mega stone is unique to each pokemon because blazekens one is called blaziken knigh knight

  • zeldaoreonerd

    Next they’ll say that there will be Mega-eeveelutions

    • Wes

      That would actually be awesome.

      • zeldaoreonerd

        that would be the only ones i would like

  • ghostycorp

    I don’t even know what to believe aymore…

  • paulaconcha

    horrible megaevolutions

  • Wes

    Guys, use your heads. If this is real, of course the Gogoat prevo will look like the fanart. They showed us the pokemon (in the trailer), then people made fanart to show people what it might look like. Now we have the official(maybe) art and it looks like the fanart because they are the same pokemon! (theoretically)

  • CherubiGold

    I dont want no mega shit

  • Miner

    Oh gosh Sylveon is eevee’s Mega evo… D:

    • zeldaoreonerd

      no don’t say that… not yet at least…

      • Wes

        All the megas do have those ribbon-y things. :/

        • zeldaoreonerd

          well we will know when Corocoro officially reveals i guess…

  • Mark James Colgan

    MEGA MAGIKARP FINALLY !!

    • Mark James Colgan

      It’s true guys !!

      • <3

      • Majd Almahmoud

        Yessss Magikarp is getting some love LOL
        Seriously how funny would it be to have a MegaMagikarp

      • Adrian Marceau

        Needs more flowing white hair. 😉

  • paulaconcha

    im dissapoint for this!!

  • Celedon

    Blaziken digivolve tooooooooo……..MEGABLAZIKEN!!!!!!!!

  • zeldaoreonerd

    Serebii just updated its 100% confirmed

    • zeldaoreonerd

      at least on twitter they updated

    • PokeNazi

      no?
      EDIT : okay never mind 😛

    • Not on there site.

      • zeldaoreonerd

        check again

    • funchum

      not everything serebii posts are real. i remember seeing there the jynx evolution and where is it now?

  • vini

    they don’t need those Mega evolution! what are they, Digimon? what’s next? Ultimate Evolution? -_-

    • PokeNazi

      There’s probably another story to this, probably just GF messing with fans 😛

  • themonster6893

    I don’t know what to believe anymore….Serebii is posting the screen shots and basically calling legit, people here are pointing out some good points against it……..it’s all just up in the air now……….!
    Edit: Yep now confirmed and my headache is going away lol

    • zeldaoreonerd

      serebii just updated saying its confirmed

    • Maybe. They did put the CoroCoro cover. Yet, the scans seem so fake.

  • NightSlash

    It’s legit, Serebii confirmed.

  • TheNintendoChip

    I just thought of something.
    Isn’t there a character limit on pokemon names (10 characters)
    So…it can’t be true b/c..
    MegaBlaziken = 12 characters.
    MegaAmpharos = 12 characters

    • True! I hope Serebii is just pulling are leg.

    • It was increased to 16.

      Parabolic Charge is an example.

  • chico

    mawile doesn’t need the mega-evolution. that’s stupid. what mawile needs is a real evolution and a more decent design than that of the mega one. -___-

  • Omojuze-san

    Please, make it a forme change!! ;'(

  • paulaconcha

    i need a megajynx

    • CL

      dont forget Mr.Mime 😛

      And a MegaJynx would be amazing!!!

  • Berba

    I’m curious now if every pokemon will get a ‘mega-evo’

  • Omojuze-san

    MEGAFROSLASS or DIE :DD

    • zuhzoo

      I love froslass! 🙂 That would be awesome 🙂

      • Omojuze-san

        yeah it would 🙂 Imagine a badass like MegaYukimenoko just sweeping through the enemies :DD

        • zuhzoo

          I think it would be my new favourite 😉 <3

  • Isidro

    If this mega thing is true, it means the end of Pokemon for me..

    • zeldaoreonerd

      the corocoro cover was revealed… its true

    • Don’t let one feature put you off, there’s still plenty to like about the games.

  • Chea:)

    No please no. If its real mega absol has wings. Mega absol use fly can’t wait for this (sarcasm )

  • MuhFugginMoose
  • ChimcharDude

    Serebii webmaster @JoeMerrick has confirmed that these leaks are 100% confirmed (well, Serebii confirmed)

    https://twitter.com/JoeMerrick/status/365494977251393539

  • FrenzyBurn

    Hey guys a special torchic is the first event it holds something called a “blaziken knight” to go mega, also they’re something called a mega stone. 🙁 🙂

    • PokeNazi

      IS IT WORLDWIDE?

  • Douwe Dam

    Serebii has shown picture of the cover. IT”S ALL TRUE!

  • Pokefan603

    If it is all real, it’ll be something we’ll all just have to get used to. We all may be hating now but pokemon is pokemon and I don’t plan on turning my back on it for any reason. Besides these mega things look incredible design-wise.

    • Mark James Colgan

      Nicely said, I’ll never turn my back on pokemon!!

      • Randomtester

        your right me too

    • Majd Almahmoud

      Yup Pokemon will always be the best game ever no matter what they do
      and haters will hate but no one cares

    • Commander A.Cheez

      Exactly. I’m slightly disappointed about the mega pokemon idea, but I’ll get used to it

    • TACOTACO

      incredible? yes megablaziken (but a fourth stage shouldnt have happened) mega lucario look great, but i am unimpressed by megamawile, ITS JUST GOT ANOTHER HEAD MOUTH THING and pink bits :(, megaabsol has an emo haircut and wings and megaamphiros just got a weave. i think it’s okay for us to not like what game freak decided to do, it’s almost unanimous and it’s all constructive criticism, not hate. sure we’ll get used to it, and i’ll certainly buy the game(maybe both), but i still think these mega god pokes were a mistake

      • Drew2u

        Don’t expect constructive criticism to last when talking abut pokemon. Try to point out any error or inconsistencies and one immediately gets flamed harder than Team Flare.

      • suidio

        they aent evolutions, they are forms that they can take during battle. So no fourth stage

    • Puca Do Monte Silva

      MegaAmpharos is Electric/Dragon and has the ability Mold Breaker!

      OMY….

      • simkenno

        It’s actually just beyond amazing. Ampharos is just a beast now its even better ! 😀

    • Nicely put. Too many people are judging it before we’ve even properly seen how it works and how it affects the game

    • Mário Sobral

      but it became ridiculous with these mega forms

  • Wes

    The new Gym Leader seems to be standing in a fighting ring. Fighting-Type Gym confirmed?

    • I will not believe it is real until Pokemon release a Trailer from there own company.

  • FrenzyBurn

    Hey look on the bright side guys, now they’re, they’re, NOOOOOOOOOOOO! (Crying)

    • Randomtester

      noo

  • Magic0loc0

    Confirmed to be true, due to CoroCoro’s cover showing Lucario + Mega-evo

  • roche206

    Well no one seen that coming.

    • PokeNazi

      well it was the biggest scoop of the ‘century’ lol. i guess biggest pokemon news in a long long time

  • Commander A.Cheez

    Its confirmed

    • Randomtester

      i know i am bummed

  • Wes

    Heheh… MegaYanmega

    • Senoel the Turtwick

      Or in romanized japanese MegaMegayanma

      • Mafuyu

        MegaMegayanma hahahaha

    • Milotic4Ever

      MegaMeganium

  • Celedon

    What if the original dragon is MegaKyurem

  • Isidro

    This news **** alot.. getting from 100% way down to 40% or less..

  • Exhibit A

    It’s amazing how many people are freaking out over this when we barely know anything about how it works.

    • simkenno

      Exactly people shouldn’t be so quick to judge 🙂

    • Sable

      You kidding? This is the Pokemon fanbase we are talking about. We are a highly reactionary bunch. Look at past reveals, Newtwo*or Mega Mewtwo* Sylveon and the growing realization we were going to be getting a new Type in Fairy. Thankfully we tend to mellow out after awhile.

  • Celedon

    so are these pseudo evolutions 4th stage or alt forms???

    • IDK. We don’t know yet!

    • Exhibit A

      My guess is somewhere between the two.

    • PokeNazi

      alt forms, which utilise something called ‘mega stone’

  • Edward Sam

    I want Pokemon’s youtube channel to upload a new trailer explaining how this is supposed to work.

    • Guest

      Me Too. Until then I think it is fake.

      • TheNintendoChip

        Ditto c:

      • NLque

        The cover of corocoro has been uploaded by the leaker.

        https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BRJ_A2xCEAMTx56.jpg

        Also, a trademark application for “Mega Evolution” was made back in April.

        • Dicie

          So this isn’t confirmed yet, just leaked?

          • NLque

            Not confirmed, but I’m pretty sure it’s real.

  • A

    many will hate this mega evolution but after awhile people will realize it not going anywhere and get use to in a year or so like many big changes in pokemon

  • FrenzyBurn

    I’m still playing x and y no matter what. Hey maybe theirs a mega archeus. That will be the most op Pokemon ever known

  • Daedardus

    Site’s getting hammered. We have trouble updating. We’ll do our best though.
    Keep calm and don’t go hating Pokémon!

    • Wes

      I could never hate Pokemon. 🙂

      • zeldaoreonerd

        i wasnt expecting this but i think im getting used to it and actually starting to like it. Mega ampharos… Hmmm

        • Mark James Colgan

          Me too 😀 when they mentioned the items it just clicked. I love it now !!

      • Dregoon

        You sir are a TRUE Pokemon fan. My hat is off to you 🙂

    • themonster6893

      Ya you guys take your time on getting the updates. the site is so over loaded at this point its hard to load, but I’ll keep coming back! lol

    • FactFinder300

      I’m naming my torchic PJ-Knight for this website!

  • Dicie

    So wait, this is legit? Then why hasn’t Pokebeach updated with this info?

    • Wes

      Maybe WPM isn’t online right now? Webmasters have lives too, you know?

      • Dicie

        True.

  • Mafuyu

    I do not like Mega evolution, this design feels very lazy. However, Koruni very good, she should be a fighting, or steel type Gym Leader

  • CL

    Well now that it’s confirmed I’m actually happy. Though I just hope it doesn’t make people turn against X and Y.

    And I wonder what other Pokemon will get this Mega Evolution ? I’d love to see a Sableye one 😀 If Mawile gets one so should Sableye 😛

    • zuhzoo

      Yes! Megasableye!

  • Pandas2NaKed

    I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO SAY…

    Really when i seen this i just lost it! Im not really sure if it is real or not, The scans look legit but the info seems like non sense. I did expect something a little out there, I remember watching the first trailer and on the Japanese one it had the DNA symbols… However i thought it would be limited to Mewtwo not Pokemon like Blazikin. I mean Mawile is a stand alone Pokemon why not just give it a evolution?
    As far as the new Pokemon… LOL one looks like a smaller ridiculous verson of riachu, the goat i expected and the design is not to bad, and the Rabat seems like its a Fakeamon. If this is real there goes my feelings for if not loving;liking all the new pokemon designs…

  • Aelerothos

    Well…look on the brightside…at least there isn’t a potato chip bag pokemon :D…Oh who am I kidding! This is horrible!

    • Daedardus

      ..yet!

      • Dicie

        This isn’t all, right?

        • Daedardus

          There’s more (possible crap) coming!

          • Dicie

            XD

  • roche206

    And on this day the pokemon fanbase split more ways than eevee can evolve.

    • Isidro

      Agree100%.. can we boycot these games?

      • zuhzoo

        No way, I’m getting them no matter what they put in them, haha 🙂

        • Isidro

          We’re getting a Pokemon-Digimon fusion..

      • simkenno

        With that attitude does that mean you can be boycotted from the site ? 😛

      • Josh Omega

        see you in october 😀

    • ihatemegasthereisnosense

      MEGA BAG OF CHIPS~!!! ;-; nvm I don’t like Mega’s, only Blaziken looks cool, rest is stupid, Ampharos doesn’t look even dragon like… they should just make mega starter’s and legendary, because they’re unique

    • It’s silly to judge a game on one feature. If anything it’ll enhance the competitive scene by giving useless/forgotten Pokémon a new lease of life. If you’re not into that then you don’t really need to worry about Mega Pokémon at all.

      • roche206

        To be honest what I said was that there will be tons of defferent views on mega evolution.Eg those that will always hate it, those that love it,those that will love it once they let it sink in over time etc. I wasn’t making my opion on the game just because of one featute, hell I love everything pokemon no matter what. I was just making a funny comment with a pokemon twist. Thats all. PS I’m all for powering up forgotten pokemon.

        • Sorry man I wasn’t actually replying to your comment, I was just making a statement XD I agree with you though.

      • Dominic

        Lucario and Blaziken were by no means ignored….

        • I didn’t mean the ones revealed, I’m talking about the possibility for other Pokémon.

  • paulaconcha

    new lucario looks like giratina wtf

  • Fatal

    I think it’s kind of cool, in a way. When I was younger I used to draw what I would think the starters final evolution’s would look like if they received a new evolution stage… so the blaziken makes me excited. Also, it seems likely that if they do it for one starter, shouldn’t they do it for the other 14? Also, I love absol, and now it has sick looking wings, yes please. New things are bound to come with a game franchise that has been around for decades, so get used to it or don’t play it. I think it’s a sick concept and I want to see a charizard mega-evolution.

    • PokeNazi

      yes one for charizard…definately:D

    • Majd Almahmoud

      I want to see MegaEmpoleon OMG Empoleon already looks so epic how would a MegaEmpoleon look like ???

      • A large Penguin! It looks cool as it already is! Image MegaCharizard, now how can we do that?

        • simkenno

          Please stop im already weak at the knees at the thaught ! I cannot wait lol 😀

    • So much yes in that comment! Exactly my thoughts, finally someone who agrees :’)

  • roche206

    must watch if you are confused about http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sa8NREI_IPs

  • Number

    I’m laughing so hard at the people freaking out and making assumptions at something they know nothing about.

    I know Masuda pointed out on a radio show that the new Mewtwo thing was never referred to as a forme, I guess I know why now!

    • zuhzoo

      Of course people are freaking out, this is huge!

      • Number

        No, it’s mega~

        • PokeNazi

          lol

  • Heatran5400
  • TheNintendoChip

    Well, if it is real there’s still more scans to be uploaded…

  • Celedon

    Ampharo’s looks like fabio

  • Wes

    I can’t read the comments fast enough. D:

    • TheNintendoChip

      Right?

  • SilverHornedStag

    Damn it! I hate forms. I’m okay with it if they’re permanent. But all this form changing annoys me. The game needs to retain some simplicity… It’s a new idea, I don’t see it fitting well to a Pokemon game. It will become too complex, new stats forms, changing forms with various items… I don’t see why they couldn’t just be normal evos. I don’t mind a 4’stage starter line. But mega evolution, it just doesn’t sound that simple. I think Pokemon wantntonshow off the 3 Ds graphics,

    • I’ve always felt the same, but these seem different, useful and cool. Usually forms just seem pointless and they don’t really make the Pokémon any better, just different. But these could give you an edge over the opponent if implemented well. But I do wonder how they’ll make it work… I’ve always liked the idea of having an extra stage too and not just 3.

  • DineshThePoet

    Mods, this goes with the translation post you made here a few weeks ago. You know, the registered names by GameFreak.

  • Exhibit A

    This is the comment section since the scans hit: http://youtu.be/6lHgbbM9pu4?t=30s

    • Owen Lawson Howell III

      Exactly! XD

  • Pandas2NaKed

    NVM Serebii has just confirmed this to be 100% legit.

  • Before, I say this is real! I want Pokemon to release a trailer! 😉 Then I will believe and follow it! 🙂

    • ChimcharDude

      You’ve said this in comments about 5 times now, we get it

    • You know it’s real, why do you still deny it?

  • Dicie

    If this is confirmed, I wonder how many total Pokemon will be in the game…

  • belmad

    THIS IS THE WORST THING EVER HAPPENED TO POKEMON

    • Turi

      Why?

      • belmad

        Because it made me wanna wake up from a nightmare

        • Nintendalek42

          This. Exactly this.

    • Mark James Colgan

      I bet you a shiny magikarp you will like this in the end 😛

    • I think it’s cool 😛 useless/forgotten Pokémon become relevant again and epic Pokémon become even more epic.

  • ChimcharDude

    Makes me laugh how nobody is really commenting about the awful new Pokemon also in this leak, it’s like GameFreak said “Lets give them a bunch of megapokemon to start a shit storm and maybe they won’t complain about the boring bunny and the fat baby pikachu”

    • Exhibit A

      I like the new Pokemon.

      • ChimcharDude

        Don’t get me wrong they’re not that bad, I understand they have to have these generic rodent/pikachu pokemon in every generation, but I personally think they’re two of the worst Gen VI pokemon announced yet. Then again all the other Gen VI are pretty damn awesome.

    • zuhzoo

      I like the look of the pikachu rip off…but it is a pikachu ripoff, again… Love the mini gogoat, don’t mind the bunny.

    • Number

      I like the new Pokemon too

  • Omojuze-san

    I guess they decided to be lazy and instead of more new pokemon and older pokemon evolutions and pre-evolutions, they
    re going to release MegaEvolutions. But I will treat MegaMawile as a Mawile evo xDDD Now I need a Sableye One:)

    • Randomtester

      i guess

  • Mark James Colgan

    If you don’t like the name ‘MegaBlaziken’ you can just rename it 😀 Namerater here we come!!

    • Wes

      I don’t think “Mega” will show up in the name. Kind of like how the Landorus form isn’t named “TherianLandorus”.

      • Mark James Colgan

        Yes I missed that xD then I’m 100% fine with this 🙂

  • TheNintendoChip

    I find it strange that the scans don’t show the Mega pokemon models…

    • Senoel the Turtwick

      Whether or not this is real, there is something fishy going on.

  • roche206

    Will Kalos starters get mega evolutions, what can be said about the Kanto starters getting mega evoulutions.

  • ghostycorp

    Well, no harm done for me. And if it’s not a ripoff to digivolution, I appreciate Game Freak’s trying to be fresh and creative 🙂

  • Celedon

    I think this might be a 4th evolution they not directly calling it that but we’ll just have to wait

    • Suicunesol

      Can’t be considered a 4th evolution if they only evolve into their mega forms during battle.

  • zeldaoreonerd

    everyone calm down1 gamefreak is trying new things is all and im sure they have a reasonable explanation… at least i hope…

  • Juba

    Maybe the cover is fake

    • There is a possibly. The art is cut off.

  • roche206

    And on this day pokemon competitive play would never be the same. Gen One lovers will have a field day.

    • zeldaoreonerd

      definitely

    • zuhzoo

      I’m a gen 1 lover, played since the beginning… and I kind of like this. 🙂

      • Wes

        You need an award for saying that.

        • zuhzoo

          Thanks haha 😛 I have to admit, gen 1 is still the best gen of pokemon for me (on the whole), but gen 3 were probably my favourite games. I like all of x and y so far, I am glad they are changing it somewhat 🙂

      • roche206

        Dude I’m in the same boat as you, but this will be a topic of much debate by all fans.

        • zuhzoo

          I agree, lots of people aren’t happy! I have warmed up to everything for x and y so far, really looking forward to the games, and now finding out more about these megas…

          • FactFinder300

            I love the megas but only one thing… No mega ZUBATS cuz they’re zubats and already stand 4’07 tall

    • NLque

      It’ll take some time getting used to 🙂

      • As you know! Not everyone takes change easy.

  • Jps101

    I’ve always been a Pokemon fan but if this “Mega” stuff is true… I’m not gonna be too fond of X and Y…

  • Omojuze-san

    I hope what we have here is a branched evolution pleazzz :'(

  • Matt

    so the new Pokemon are a baby Raichu, one of the rabbits from Mario Galaxy and a bunch of Digimon?

  • Berba

    Would rather have the bag of potato chips pokemon than this:(

    • Nintendalek42

      I couldn’t agree more.

    • Owen Lawson Howell III

      I couldn’t disagree more.

  • zeldaoreonerd

    so many comments… Not enough time to read them all!!!1

  • TACOTACO

    i kinda hope this isn’t real 🙁 i don’t like that there is a FOURTH stage to these pokemon, and mawiles evo is barely any different! disappointing :/ i guess the blaziken and lucario ones are cool, but they were cool already

  • TACOTACO

    electric hamtaro

    • Isidro

      omg so true xD

  • belmad

    Why not giving Mawile a normal evo?!

  • Nintendalek42

    Clearly no one could make a fake corocoro cover… (sarcasm). Come one guys, it’s a little too early for a real leak, and serebii has made mistakes in the past (remember football-fish and koala-pansage?). Besides, mega absol’s image has bits on multiple scans, so in various areas of a same page. How is that possible?
    Mega-evolving pokemon like Absol or Mawile makes no sense).

    (Slowly begins weeping as he contemplates this horror to be real…)
    It seems my love of pokemon is more fragile than I thought, as I am reconsidering buying Y a little…

    • Exhibit A

      The only reason it’s early is because CoroCoro is being released early this month.

    • That is true! You would think they will release a evolution before that! They needed it! I will be still buying Y because I love PKMN <3. Yet, it is really early! I think this is the earliest a scan has leaked yet!

    • NLque

      It’s a poster.

    • Don’t let one feature put you off when there’s plenty more to love about the games.

  • kurowasan

    It would be funny if there was a Mega Meganium or Mega Yanmega. XD
    I still have my doubts about this being a good addition to the games. Well, gotta wait and see if they make good use of this feature or just screw it all up.
    Right now, it seems really unnecessary.

  • chico

    i’m gonna die -_-

  • Magic0loc0

    Haters, listen! Don’t forget that there are just SIX Mega Evolutions! How many Pokémon do we have again? About 750 after this generation. Don’t complain about it, just see it is a new form for certain Pokémon.

    • Senoel the Turtwick

      Some people might be hating because of this. Think, now torchic is now a more powerful starter option than the others.

      • Maybe all the starters get it! (:

        • Bob

          One can only hope…

          • Hope enough to make it a dream! I don’t like MegaPokemon! I it will take some getting used to. 😉

        • Mark James Colgan

          So Afarr you starting to like this then ? 🙂

          • Just a bit! It will take some getting used to. Yet, I can live with it. It might still be fake until Pokemon confirms it! But it will make Pokemon have something new!

          • Mark James Colgan

            Nice, I think it bring something new to the older pokemon.

          • Yea! But it seems that it is only used during battle.

          • Mark James Colgan

            True, I really hope Nintendo will explain it better to us soon.

        • zuhzoo

          Omg, I didn’t even think of mega blastoise, charizard and venusaur… And mega typhlosion! What would they look like? I hope so too. Do you think the gen 6 starters would?

  • belmad

    I hope these Megavolutions are part of X&Y’s gimmick genetic altering storyline and we won’t see them anywhere ever.

  • TheNintendoChip

    One thing that irks me is I don’t understand how an item can be called “Blaziken Knight”. I don’t even understand the concept…

  • Wes

    If the item makes the Pokemon evolve at its normal level, then how will Absol evolve into MegaAbsol if there is no “regular” Absol evolution? Does that make sense?

    • TheNintendoChip

      That’s what i’m trying to figure out…

      • Wes

        Maybe Absol and Mawile get “regular” evolutions?

        • NLque

          Mega evolution is done only through battle. We’ll update, but the site is taking us for a ride right now.

  • roche206

    If you can read this in all the comments you have a good eye, but anyway that rabbit is something I always wanted to own and its nice to see bunary have a bf. My heart went super wee when I seen that mouse/guinepig.

  • ChimcharDude

    I DON’T LIKE CHANGE

    • zeldaoreonerd

      i dont think anyone does but we have to get used to it…

      • moving

        I like change. And I like this change.

        • zeldaoreonerd

          i like this too.im just trying to lighten the situation i guess

        • ghostycorp

          Change is good man

        • Dicie

          This change will be amazing, and will make trainers really OP, which can add to the overall difficulty of the game, and make it better and longer.

    • dialasong

      haha, me either, so i’m gonna try and be open minded about this… my first reaction was “oh no this looks really stupid”, but the idea has grown on me a bit and I’m going to keep waiting for more information. besides, new pokemon news is always exciting, I’m hoping that there’s still more left for us to see.

    • EliteTrainerXeos

      THEN GO HOME. The Pokemon world is always constantly changing, things from previous games like D/P/Pt/HG/SS had new features which you have now gotten used to.

      How is this gonna hurt?

      • belmad

        WHY he has to go home if he don’t like a thing in Pokemon. We’re not brainless creatures that appreciate and love everything. We have an ability to criticize and have an opinion about something. We’re human beings. Did he say I’m not playing Pokemon from now on? No. He just stated an opinion.

      • ChimcharDude

        Woah, calm it Kermit.

  • a

    didn’t people once speculate that this gen will have something to do with genetics ?

  • Lucas Santaanna

    Kids will love that

  • belmad

    We should have seen it coming after Kyurem’s fusion… :/

    • I thought a fusion was cool! It explained how Kyurem was a part of Reshiram and Zekrom. 🙂

  • Dicie

    Maybe all starters will get a Mega Form, all pseudo-legendaries and maybe all legendaries? Maybe, maybe, maybe…

  • TerminusTypeR

    Welp, I absolutely love this. I never thought I’d be on board with something like this, but…well, I am. This is such a neat way to change up old pokemon! I really love the designs too. Ampharos…I mean…just look at those beautiful locks! He’s a rockstar.

  • roche206

    Well looking forward to the memes. And can anyone not say this will make gaming news everywhere.

  • Dicie

    What other Pokemon do you guys think will get Mega Forms?

  • ChimcharDude

    I’m so eager to learn how this will work! What will their stats be like? Will it be a reversible change like formes? Will there be version exclusives? Will they be banned form competitive playing like legendaries? So many questions!

  • Mark James Colgan

    “An important thing to note is that these aren’t evolutions, they aren’t new form(e)s, they’re something totally new.” Serebii.

  • Smurphy

    All you haters listen up. I’m gonna say this now, and I’m only saying it once. When I saw these mega evolutions, I got 10 times more excited for these games, because unlike all of you, I am a true fan of pokemon. Pokemon are pokemon are pokemon. I’m not saying you have to like every design, but we no next to nothing about this new concept. Give all the hating a rest. And if this truly does make you not want to play pokemon anymore, than you were never really a fan to start with

    • belmad

      Yeah that’s the main point. I was wondering why I don’t like them, it turned out that I’m not a real fan. Thanks for clarifying.

      • Chicolombia

        I have learned to love an appreciate your witty comments. 😀

    • Dicie

      This new concept just makes me more excited to play X and Y.

    • Dregoon

      Well said Good sir. My hat’s off to you too 🙂 The two Pokenots that downvoted you need take seats.

  • roche206

    So this is what the DNA means I guess.

  • TCMets

    Well this certainly explains the DNA theme…

    • kurowasan

      Everywhere that “Mega evolution” is written, the text is rainbow colored. Certainly matches the DNA in the japanese logo, the DNA in the protagonists bracelets and the DNA above Mega Mewtwo in the most recent trailer (which looking now probably was a “mega evolution” scene in the middle of battle).

      • Milotic4Ever

        I think you’re on to something. Maybe it wasn’t a move after all, and GF just Foresighted this CoroCoro scan!

  • Wes

    How will I have enough room in the PC for all the “Regulars” and all the “Megas”? ;(

    • They can extend the PC box.

      • Wes

        But imagine how long it will take to scroll through all of your boxes. x-x

        • True! But it happens when you have more pokemon!

        • Jess_Witt

          It will be a new update for the next PC maker.

    I’m cool with this. Once the initial shock passed, honestly, I’m fine with this. The Mega Evolutions we’ve seen thus far are badass, and I’m looking forward to seeing what MegaWeezing looks like.

  • Guest

    Shhh. No need to rustle your PokeJimmies. Let’s wait until we know more. Sheesh what a whiny fandom.

  • ghostycorp

    Excitement aside.. So Game Freak… Oorotto?

  • zuhzoo

    My thoughts as a whole:
    I like the looks of the megas,
    How will this work and affect gameplay?
    How many megas will there be? (My main worry is that it will take away from the final evolutions of new pokemon, if it happens to any from gen 6)
    Will we get less new pokemon as a result?
    I am reaaaally looking forward to getting my hands on X this October! Love the mega blaziken and mawile.

    Overall: I have trust in gamefreak, I think the games will be enjoyable no matter what. Pokemon needs to change, maybe we will all/most end up enjoying megas?
    Also, I think that the megas will be reversible, maybe. Although that would involve the stones being a hold item…

    • simkenno

      Im really liking some of the comments you’ve made on the site, you seem to be one of the calmer and rational fan along with some of us 🙂 Woop Woop 😀

      • zuhzoo

        Haha thanks 🙂

  • kurowasan

    Zooming into the scan, it confirms Mawile’s type change to Steel/Fairy, not just it’s Mega evolution.

  • TheNintendoChip

    Guys look at the right side of this image, right below MegaAbsol. New pokemon?

    http://www.serebii.net/corocoro8136th.jpg

    • dialasong

      if so then that’s exciting, but it’s too dark to tell whether or not that’s just a part of some other picture, like a part of megaabsol or something (also dang the main thing that bothers me about these is their names, I’m gonna accept them and they’ll probably end up being cool but I wish they didn’t just have ‘mega’ tacked onto their original names, but oh well)

  • Igneous

    Please keep in mind that these are OPTIONAL! It’s there for people to explore and it won’t hurt giving it a try. Yes, there bound to be similarities between games in the same genre such as Digimon, but I personally love these because they are Pokemon, the ones I grew up with.

    • You will not say that they are “optional” when they start to appear in competitive play.

  • roche206

    And I , holy shit, will always love you. I cant believe you did this to me God dammit how could you do this to me. -JonTron

  • ChimcharDude

  • NLque

    Guys, mega-evolution is not necessarily a evolution per se. You can only do it during battle. I’m suspecting you hold it like an eviolite.

    • Chicolombia

      Please be true

      • NLque

        The part about battling is true. The leaker said it himself. We’re trying to update.

        • Chicolombia

          Alright. Also, thanks to you and all the staff for the hard work you are doing in this hectic time.

    • Berba

      if this is true, i would love it!! a boost for pokemon! i don’t want them to look like mega’s for ever.

      • yep

        its like the ability blaze… but you can see it

        • Berba

          yes indeed! that i would love! but i don;t want them to look like they’re on steroids the whole time

    • zuhzoo

      That’s what I’m thinking now. Wouldn’t mind having a constantly mega pokemon though…

    • TheNintendoChip

      So it’s like a held item that switches “formes” of a pokemon?
      Like Blaziken holds a Blaziken Knight and goes into a battle, upon which it switches “formes” into MegaBlaziken?

      • NLque

        I’m assuming so. I don’t know what the Megastone does, but it seems that all these weird held items are connected in some way, and they hold the keys to this mega-evolution.

        • dialasong

          now the question is whether the held items will be available in game or whether they’ll be event only….

    • roche206

      If is an item how will that work for strategy eg hold a choice item etc. Maybe their stats are to good for items. Well we will find out soon.

    • Oh God & Arceus. Let this be true!

    • ghostycorp

      I kinda guess they’ll have some drawbacks too. Well, they’re trying hard for balancing what with fairy-type and typing retcons.

      • simkenno

        You wont be able to give them items, probably, as you need them to hold the mega stone to become Mega.

    • RavenWindSirvi

      I think that it would be good to have it as a hold item just to make it fair

      • NLque

        I think it’s quite a smart decision in terms of comp.

    • belmad

      I hope they’re limited to main storyline and gameplay.

    • TACOTACO

      PLEASE YES, for some reason i am more okay with it if it as you say

  • TCMets

    I wonder if all Pokemon will have a mega-evolution?

  • zeldaoreonerd

    so ampharos is to be electric dragon with mold breaker? so a reverse zekrom? COOL!!!

  • Peakworthy

    I don’t see why people are hating on this so much, it’s an interesting idea and I for one can’t wait to see it utilized. This fanbase needs to stop being so against change, seriously.

    • Milotic4Ever

      Just as Pokemon evolve, the franchise too, must evolve and improve.

  • 97gerome

    I would have loved the Mega Pokemon thing IF they didn’t include the starter pokemon. But come on, has it really come to a point where a normal evolution just doesn’t cut it anymore? I have loved every reveal so far, except this. :/

  • RavenWindSirvi

    I love this, something to make my prev. Pokémon worth using again and having fun.
    I think that it is good we are getting something diff and new. and I love the absol one the best

  • Omojuze-san

    I kinda like MegaMawile :P. Now I need MegaFroslass :p If they do Mega Evolutions for all Fully Evolved Pokemon and still debut at least 100 new pokemon then I’m ok with that 😛

  • Number

    I though at first the English Pokemon community was freaking out much more than other langauges’ fans, but it looks like its only the same handful of people yelling really loud.

    More importantly, Mawile has twintails! Mawile has twintails! Yessssss

  • TCMets

    My Sceptile better get a mega-evolution. It’s not fair if Blaziken gets one and the other starters don’t lol.

    • Also, it has Speedboost. Now it is 100% OVERPOWERED.

  • Anonymous

    “OH LOOK WE’RE GOING TO FORCE YOU TO MAKE YOUR PRECIOUS POKEMON MEGAS!” Pretty sure it’s optional.

    • zeldaoreonerd

      only battles maybe?

    • Peaks

      I don’t see why people wouldn’t want them to be Mega anyway. From what I can tell it’s a way to make them even stronger.

    • RavenWindSirvi

      yes this if you don’t want to evo don’t

  • FrenzyBurn

    Mega evolution could be like the Pokemon gets a mutated helping hand in battle

  • ChimcharDude

    Blaziken, Mawile, Absol all getting MegaEvos… At least this will add an awesome mechanic to the eventual Gen III remakes!

    • Dicie

      I never thought about that… 😀
      GEN 3 SEQUELS/REMAKES CONFIRMED!

      • Omojuze-san

        yeah yeah rub it in xDD As much as we wan’t those, we’re probably not gonna see them soon :'(

        • Dicie

          True.

      • Milotic4Ever

        Three likes? Half-Life 3 confirmed.

        • Dicie

          XD

  • Reece

    One thing that I’ll definitely love about these Mega Pokemon will be the intricate designs (especially now that they’re 3D)
    Have to say when I saw these on Serebii, I was excited and actually gasped because of how epic these look (even though they’re only on paper)
    Tbh, I do think this fan base is extremely whiny, I’m one of those fans that accepts everything GameFreak will do because like pokemon, they’re just trying to evolve and come up with fresh new ideas to keep everybody entertained

    • zuhzoo

      Yeah I agree, this should be pretty interested. Just as long as Pokemon stays approachable to new fans (ie. it doesn’t get super complicated), I’m happy 🙂

      • Reece

        I’m pretty sure it’ll be a held item so Megas online don’t get too OP (MegaBlaziken w/Speed Boost + Life Orb/Choice Band, heck no)

        • zuhzoo

          True, held items would definitely stop them being too OP!

    • TACOTACO

      is anyone else disappointed with mawiles? i mean it just got an extra mouth and pink bits? 🙁 not intricate or different really

      • EliteTrainerXeos

        It now has twin tails.

        • TACOTACO

          haha like hatsune miku

      • Reece

        Tbh, they all look pretty frickin awesome so…

    • Hold3r

      AMEN!!

    • Amber

      You think the pokemon community is whiny? This is tame compared to the metal community XD But I’m astounded by this development. It’s new, kind of cool and has made me actually want to have a Mawile.

    • simkenno

      Many fans are stuck in the past but can be sadly louder than us rational fans. That’s why us fans have to stick together and make our voices heard. 🙂

    • Dude, I’m glad that you enjoy them, but don’t say that the fan base is whiny and doesn’t accept GameFreak’s choices. Believe me when I say that I am as big a Pokemon fan as they come. I own all of the games and play them all the time, know most everything there is to know, and love the hell out of it, but I’m skeptical of this. I’m still going to buy and love X and Y, however this is a confusing move. If they only do Blaziken, that will be a mistake, because it unbalances everything. They are favoring one of the starters which is the EXACT OPPOSITE of what the point of starters is. It’s supposed to be picking the on you like most from 3 equals, and if this doesn’t come to all the other starters then it is like GameFreak is trying to make Torchic the most unique and coolest. With that said, I don’t want to see a Charizard mega-evolution because Charizard is my favorite. If there is something above Charizard in the same line, then it is almost insulting (almost) to Charizard.
      I guess what I’m saying is that skepticism is natural, and saying that people who are not fully on board yet are “whiny” and not as accepting as you, and insinuating to the fullest extent that they are below you is totally uncalled for and rude. And if that makes me not a “true Pokemon fan” as people have been saying, then sue me.

      I apologize for taking this all out on you, haha. It just seems like everyone who is commenting is saying “If you aren’t fully on board, you are wrong.”

      • TheBigC

        Imagine this, though: Charizard losing his hindering flying-type, then gaining his well-deserved dragon-type through MegaEvolution. Also, a Water/Steel MegaBlastoise would sound pretty boss, too, no? And the “less-desirable” starter evos (from a competitive point of view), like Meganium or Samurott or Typhlosion. MegaMeganium, Grass/rock or grass/bug, MegaSamurott, Water/Fighting, MegaTyphlosion, Fire/Ground… Wouldn’t that be awesome?

        • I’ve become more on board with the idea as we’ve learned more about it, and yes, a grass/bug MegaMaganium would be really cool. But why on Earth would Meganium be grass/rock? Haha, and Typhlosion Fire/Ground? umm… Yes, adding better types would be cool, but I just had to disagree with the ones you suggested, sorry.

          It would be awesome, assuming they are fair and do it to all of the starters. Just imagine if they made Mega Charizard and Mega Blastoise…. but didn’t make Mega Venusaur, That is my biggest concern. It wouldn’t really be fair and it takes out the fun in starters, being you can pick your favorite and they have the same total stats and none are favored in the game.

          For that matter, I wish they would give ALL Pokemon mega-evolutions, because it makes the ones that don’t get mega-evos less desirable than the ones that do. I know that some pokemon are better stat wise, but in game that would never stop me from using, say Altaria. However, Mega-evolution is clearly a feature that I’m going to wants to use, and if Altaria doesn’t get one that it makes her lame in comparison. I don’t know, I’m excited, but I see a good chance that GameFreak will start playing favorites if that makes sense.

          Sorry for the late and long reply lol

  • Ultron

    Well this is kinda weird.. I’m not necessarily against mega evolutions, but I don’t think blaziken, lucario, or ampharos really need them. And mega lucario looks like it was fused with giratina.

  • Dicie

    Mega Arceus, anyone?

  • chico

    okay. come to think of it, it’s just alright. now i’m all okay with this. a little change wouldn’t hurt. well, if you don’t want them, then don’t use them. 🙂

  • Dicie

    I believe all starters and pseudo-legendaries will get Mega Form. It would be nice for them to make all legendaries get the Mega Forms too, but a guy can dream…

  • a

    when i first saw this i was in total shocked wishing that they were fake. but now that i calmed down i see that this system has potential. it is not worth quitting pokemon for. at the end of day it is still the same pokemon when you think about. it may take months for people to get use to this but with this system pokemon has got more interesting. people who say they won’t buy the game because of this most like will buy it. it sad people are getting upset and treating to leave pokemon because more pokemon are getting more forms.

    • Dicie

      Agreed.

  • Juba

    Mega dito

    • Omojuze-san

      hahaah, MEGA BREEDING TIME xDD

  • Dicie

    Anyone else thought of Pikachu when they looked at Dedenne?

    • Exhibit A

      Not really any more than Plusle, Minun, Pachirisu, and Emolga.

      • Dicie

        Yeah, all the cute Electric-types. 😀

    • Wes

      I think it looks like that beta Pokemon, Honoguma.

      • Dicie

        I think so too. What similarities…

  • Nartus

    Could this show why the game card data is much larger then we expect? My thoughts are with this new evolution, this could be why the data is much larger then we usually see.

  • S2NewMewtwoForm

    It’s the first time that I comment on a Pokemon themed website, but I’ve always been checking Serebii, Poke Jungle, etc. And, well, I’m disappointed with this for many reasons!

    First for a “big scoop” the information was too small!

    Second, I really enjoyed Mewtwo’e new form because I really like Giratina and although I like “MegaLucario” I think that the concept is stupid because it drives away from what Pokemon is! I love all generations and I was enjoying this new generation because it was starting to be pretty awesome, but now with this new feature it’s just plain stupid!

    This information is stupid because I’m a huge Pokemon fan and I’ve been following the Pokemon franchise almost since the beginning and I’m all in favor of new ideas, but this disregards many things that should have been done!

    Gamefreak should star listening to some of the fans ideas!

    • Malcolm Neill

      Dude..CoroCoro is not even finished yet

    • Dicie

      The leaks are not over. This is not all. We are days behind of when the actual magazine is confirmed. There will be more, they are just in the process of sorting the real/fake information and translating what they can. Give them some time.

    • Mark James Colgan

      We should be getting the starters 1st evolutions soon.

    • belmad

      No, if you don’t like this new thing you are a hater and not a true Pokemon. It is stated by Smurphy down here and a lot of people seem to agree him.

  • Guest

    Somewhere, GameFreak is cackling and rubbing its corporate hands.

  • Alucard

    Wow… just wow. I’m really sorry I’m trying to keep an open mind about this but… this just kiled all my excitement for the game.
    Not only is that a blatant Digimon rip-off but what is up with that new pokemon??

    That electric type is frigging Pikachu 2.0 how lazy can you get???

    With Pokemon like Vaniluxe there was at least some effort put into them but this is just LAZY!

    • Tyler Harwood Simpson

      Every generation has its “Pikachu”. I assume that this is the case with this Pokemon.

    • FrenzyBurn

      It looks more like a mutated version of a pikachu/paturisu mix

    • ghostycorp

      I thought you said it yourself that this is optional and not to be whiny…

    • One little feature shouldn’t just kill your excitement for a game, There’s plenty of other things in the game to look forward to.

  • Sunny

    I wonder who else will get Mega Evolution’s!

  • Malcolm Neill

    COROCORO HAS NOT FINISHED YET. There is at the very lest 1-2 more pages..

    • zeldaoreonerd

      how do you know?

      • TheNintendoChip

        There are various pages with part of MegaAbsol on it that hasn’t been leaked

        • zeldaoreonerd

          oh wow… im an idiot… i pointed this out on the other thread and totally forgot

  • FrenzyBurn

    This can’t be the only scan. Plz don’t let it be

  • TCMets

    Lol, I just thought of MegaMeganium. That’s two mega’s too many.

    • simkenno

      Its coming for you. Its using SweetScent right now to find and eliminate all your Chespins so only MegaMeganium can dominate…… :O 😛 🙂

  • S2NewMewtwoForm

    I can only hope for an explanation now!

  • Missingno. Master

    Oh, please, oh please, let there be a MegaWeezing!

    • Mark James Colgan

      Yes that would be amazing !!

      • Might want to read my comment above. I with u on this!

  • N

    Is this a hint that possibly Kalos is connected to Hoenn in some way… Or gen 3 remake

    • Dicie

      Just to add on, DLC is out of the picture. At the E3 conference, DLC was said to not exist in X/Y, but they could make a new kind of DLC, maybe DLR– Downloadable Regions?

  • Caitlin

    LOL the comments are flying down fast. I guess I’ll be more open to the idea in a few days but I just still can’t get over pokemon like Blaziken getting this if the other starters don’t things are going to become unbalanced 🙁

  • Lugia

    Just wondering, maybe Pokemon get their Mega Forms once EVs are maxed out…

  • ghostycorp

    Now, with this uproar around the world.. I really, reaaaallly wish the leaker to not be a jerk and calls this a fake.

    • FrenzyBurn

      It’s real buddy deal with it

      • ghostycorp

        I know 🙂 I just thought that if it happens there will another different uproar hahaha

  • FrenzyBurn

    Maybe mega Evo is a supersaiyna type thing you must be at a certain level

    • Dicie

      All Mega Pokemon might know Super Sayan 4 and Kamahameha.

      • FrenzyBurn

        Or spirit bomb/ball

  • Dicie

    They really have to release lots more Mega Forms because there is only one more CoroCoro leak after this one unless you don’t count a possible one on October 11th…

  • Wes

    Why do we keep getting cutesy pokemon? I want some ferocious ‘mons!

    • Dicie

      YEAH!

    • TheNintendoChip

      Need…feroucious…Fariy-type pokemon….

      • Dicie

        I think the point of Fairy-types is more centered towards cute Pokemon, whereas new types from Gen 2 like Steel and Dark were centered around ferocious Pokemon.

  • ChimcharDude

    I don’t like the notion that these MegaEvos are only available during battle, I mean if you’re gonna add this new mechanic at least go the whole way and let us drool over them in all their glory whilst outside of battle

  • dialasong

    aw sweet, it is exciting to learn that ampharos will gain a dragon type?? or is it just mega ampharos that gets the new type??? does the process of megaevolution have the ability to grant an entire new type to a Pokemon??

    • zeldaoreonerd

      just mega

      • dialasong

        huh, okay. that’s really interesting then

    • TheNintendoChip

      Wait…What?

  • yoma

    if u are a true fan of pokemon u will get over it and come to love or hate it but u still going to get x and y and play the hell out of it

    • zeldaoreonerd

      at first i was surprised it was real but then i grew to love it within five minutes afterward

    • Alucard

      So as a fan you have to take everything they throw at you without reflection?
      I’m probably going to get it anyway but I suddenly lost all that excitement I had for this game.

      • Dregoon

        No you don’t have to accept right away but a real fan would look at the situation with an open mind and give it some thought instead of jumping on the hate bandwagon.

    • Dregoon

      Well said sir.

  • TheNintendoChip

    MegaAmpharos – Electric/Dragon w/Mold Breaker 😮

    • zeldaoreonerd

      (aka) Zekrom lol

      • TheNintendoChip

        Yup

    • Wes

      Where do you see that? I’m lost. :/

      • zeldaoreonerd

        on the twitter account

        • Wes

          Oh, ok. Thanks

    • Zekrom?

  • 97gerome

    Maybe the reason why some people (which sort of includes me) hate the mega evolution thing is because it just screams “DIGIMOOOOOOON!!!” :/
    I’ll still be getting the games though, but man, I don’t think these were necessary…

  • roaringthunder

    Maybe May is coming Back because blaziken also gets an mega evolution an the other starters not.

  • TheNintendoChip

    Serebii says that “The Super Training facility is also showcased”. Have we seen a scan of this yet?

    • zeldaoreonerd

      no we havent

    • FrenzyBurn

      It’s cut out a bit

  • CL

    I can see it now:

    Team Flare leader ??? – Sends out Blaziken

    Trainer – Uh oh

    Team Flare Leader ??? Blazkens Mega Stone altered Blazikens Form

    Trainer – ‘O.o Aw crap

    • chico

      Tainer- sends out Final evolution of Froakie . hehehe

    • Anon

      Trainer – *Sends out MegaWailord*
      You’re welcome.

  • TCMets

    Really gotta say, that Mega-Blaziken is badass. Wow! Love it.

    • TheNintendoChip

      I really like it too c:

  • Now I’m okay with Mega-Pokemon. There only used in battle! Hopefully Pokemon has a way to make it even! Like the “MegaStone” can only be used up to 5 times, then it breaks or something. It will be even better if you are given only 1 per game. Yet, I would say the designs are really cool (: I still think it is unnecessary. Yet, change is something everyone has to get used to. (:

    • Randomtester

      i agree

    • TCMets

      That’s good news. Now I want a Mega-Sceptile. Grass/Dragon would be schweeeet!

      • You have read my mind. 😉

        • FactFinder300

          Or serperior

    • TheNintendoChip

      I like them c: I just don’t understand MegaLucario’s tail…cape…thing..

    • Lugia

      When was that confirmed?

      • NLque

        Leaker said it.

    • NLque

      Text is really clear on this; the megastones are hold items.

      • That’s good!

      • Missingno. Master

        And do they work for every fully evolved Pokémon, or only certain ones, or can we not be sure either way just yet?

        • I think so.

        • NLque

          No word on that yet. I personally think it might be all pokemon.

      • Dicie

        Hold items? Well, could that mean that you could see these Forms in your party too? Because they would still be holding the item…

    • TheNintendoChip

      Did anyone else notice that MegaAbsol has like…wings?

    • Dicie

      I also agree with this, but just in battle… I dunno, seems a bit weird to introduce a whole new feature and make it battle-only. Hopefully we’ll get an English clarification within the next few days, but I would’ve enjoyed these more if I could be able to admire them in my party rather than in-battle. The MegaStone part you are spot-on about, as that does sound like something GF would do. Good theories overall, and I hope they come true.

      • Yea. Just need to nerf it so that it would’t be over powered.

        • Dicie

          Yeah, especially if not all Pokemon gain Mega Forms, that would leave some out and make others OP.

          • FrenzyBurn

            Again mega archeus will kill us all!,,

          • Dicie

            XD

          • Super Judgment.

          • Yea! It needs to be illegal in wifi-battles or if the game has a battle frontier!

          • willy410

            Maybe since there hold items, it means in a tournament you can only have one mega pokemon on your team

          • Yea! But, hopefully GameFreak will nerf it, so they wouldn’t be to powerful!

    • Suicunesol

      Wow, you must really hate this concept. Only one mega stone per game? Use it only 5 times? Not used in Wifi battles?

      Of course they’re going to be in Wifi battles. There would be no point if players couldn’t use their favorite Pokemon in Wi-fi battles because you didn’t like them.

  • Lugia

    That new gym leader looks like she’s in a boxing ring, so is she a fighting type leader?

    • CL

      It could mean that. I’d like it if she was a fighting Gym Leader, Maylene would have a new buddy lol

  • FrenzyBurn

    To much comments, overloading my system

  • gxm098

    To me mega evolution seems like a system of evolving a Pokemon that looked like it couldn’t evolve anymore and make them stronger. Don’t get me wrong, I love the new concept of mega-lution :). But I just need more details on this.

  • a

    i thining mega evo are only in battle. watch the eshop trailer with orroto. the part with mewtwo is mega evolution

        Um, in the image.

        • Wes

          Which image?

        • TheNintendoChip

          Which one?

          Ninja’d c:

        • zeldaoreonerd

          are you talking about megablaziken?

        • Mark James Colgan

          lol

        • dialasong

          looks more like some kinda deer to me, honestly

    • Reece

      That looks more like a doe Pokemon of some kind to me

      • TheNintendoChip

        In the scan showcasing MegaBlaziken?
        It looks like a lamb to me…but it’s strange that its a bipedal.

        • Wes

          It doesn’t even look like a Pokemon to me. It looks like a move animation.

    • FrenzyBurn

      What you talking ’bout Willis?

    • TCMets

      Looks more like the Pokemon-thing that was shown briefly in the anime trailer.

    • Dicie

      Oh well damn, you were right.

  • blarg

    where’s the potato chips???

    • Dicie

      They’ll arrive here soon enough.

  • Chicolombia

    Remember that time where most people were complaining about the potato chip and sushi Pokemon? That doesn’t seem so bad now does it?

    • Suicunesol

      Actually, I’m appalled that the fanbase would prefer a potato chip and sushi Pokemon to a brand-new mechanic like this that would make older Pokemon more viable in competitive play. >_>

  • Nintendalek42

    I still cling to the hope it’s all a hoax, but it seems more and more legit. I’ve actually liked mawile and absol’s evos from the start, I just abhor, detest and wish hell upon the god-awful concept of “mega”-evolution. Blaziken was truly perfect as he was. Mewtwo’s forme was good enough as “awakened”. I was kinda hoping for a lucario evo, but this is just too similar, with no intelligent evolution towards the discreet egptian inspiration, and just crappy pimping that makes it look it had baggy jeans and a dinosaur aesthetic added. Absol and Mawile have no benefit to reap from being bagged with perfectly fine, fully fledged pokemon as victims of a concept that gamefreak knows makes the pokemon too different to be forms and too similar to be evos (except for mawile and absol), and is also probably too scared to call evos because it messes with the 3-stage evolution idea.

    Despite my initial love of what had been revealed for this generation and my high hopes for the game, it seems gamefreak has decided to take a long, hard dump on my dreams (sorry for being crude, but that’s exactly how I picture it) and to hand over creative decisions to a 5-year old who thought 3-stage evolution wasn’t enough and pokemon needed to copy Digimon’s OTT design choices.

    I was looking forward to exploring Kalos’s fields, but now I’m just lost in a dark void. Thinking of pokemon now has a disgusting afterthought of the horror that has just been commited in my view. Maybe it’s time I moved on from pokémon to something that has minimum standards of consistency and doesn’t take creative risks of this magnitude. If wanting a shred of consitency means I’m not a real fan, then so be it.
    Now all that needs to happen is for Steven Moffat to mess up doctor who’s 50th and my too favourite things will be wrecked before christmas.

    EDIT: Seriously, dislikes? I’m not insulting anyone, just stating how I feel about this.
    Can not one of you answer in an intelligent fashion to tell me why they think I’m wrong and overreacting? Or are you offended by my crude imagery ? (in which case, get a life).

    • FrenzyBurn

      Wait, what?

      • Nintendalek42

        What part do you want me to clarify?

    • zuhzoo

      That’s where different people disagree, I never liked blaziken as a design… I loved torchic but ended up with mudkip since I preferred all of its evolutions as a whole. This mega form blaziken though? I love it! I would finally have a blaziken on my team just to have it go mega. It just appeals to me more. Maybe you will like some of the other megas, if there are some. We really don’t know much yet!

      Doctor who is one thing that is not consistent at all 😛 I have high hopes for the 50th though, and the new doctor is awesome. But I’m getting off topic here!

      • Nintendalek42

        Yeah, Doctor Who, isn’t very consistent, that’s very,true, but one could say it’s consistent in it’s own inconsitency. Pokemon was pretty consistent though, and this flies in the face of its consistency. Adding pseudo fourth-stages, legendary evolution, and depriving Absol and Mawile of real evos to benefit this strange concept is blasphemy as I see it. Is Evee the only one to be safe from the depriving of previous gen pokemon of real evolutions?
        Also, Mega”insert pokemon here”? Really? That’s soooo imaginative >:'(.
        I don’t exactly dislike the megas in themselves, I think they all look pretty cool, I’m just disgusted by the concept. For, example, I don’t mind Megalucario, I just wished lucario had been given a properly different evo instead of being needlessly tampered with.

        • zuhzoo

          I see what you are saying now 🙂 I really want to know more about how the mega-form-lutions affect the actual stats etc, how much of an advantage they give. I think it will all end up relying on how it feels in-game, maybe it will work, maybe it will feel slightly out of place.

          Are they confirmed to be called ‘mega’ in English? I see what you mean there too, it does feel a bit strange to have a generic prefix in pokemon. Also glad you like the actual designs. It is a good point though, it is a shame if we have missed out on actual evolutions because of this, although I like the redesigns too.

          Basically, at the moment I am cautiously optimistic. We really need some official updates now!

    • It is a love/hate thing and there will be pros and cons, but I do think it adds another layer to the strategy and will make useless/forgotten Pokémon relevant again (assuming more Pokémon get megalutions). There is a lot to like about in Pokémon games and a lot of great stuff coming in X&Y. You shouldn’t let one feature get in the way of your enjoyment 🙂

      P.S. Dislikes are supposed to be for people who disagree with your opinion, nothing personal.

      • Nintendalek42

        I’m pretty sure I wil buy Y, and that I will warm up to all this, but for now, the mega-evolution concept still riles mes. Oh, and about dislikes, I happen to go on another disqus using site where they are very much frowned upon, and this despisal has rubbed off on me. You’ve got to agree dislikes don’t promote harmony or intelligent conversation :).

        • That’s fair enough it always takes time to get used to new things. Pokémon has always progressed slowly, so this is quite a major shake up and us fans weren’t prepared.

          Yeah I do think it’s sometimes used wrongly and like you said doesn’t promote discussion that well, but at least you can say you win if no one has the balls to respond in writing 😛

  • Mark James Colgan

    Fairy type or Mega Pokemon, which was the bigger reveal ?

    • Mega-Pokemon! Because everyone knew Fairy-Type was coming.

    • Wes

      I’d say Mega Pokemon. Look at the comments: 525 in what? An hour? The fanbase is going nuts.

    • Pangotcha

      I’d have to say mega evolutions, because they’re so out of the blue and no one could have speculated or even guess this was going to be a thing. I love both fairy and mega evolutions though 🙂

    • Missingno. Master

      Mega Evolutions, no question. Fairy type was leaked too much for it to be that stunning of a reveal, but Mega Evolutions… look around you, man! Look at all these comments! This is freaking huge!

    • Mega is the more surprising no doubt about it, however which is bigger depends on how mega will work. Will it be a game changer or just a gimmicky form?

  • TCMets

    I hope the Champion uses some Mega Pokemon, that’d be awesome.

    • Dicie

      I hope he/she uses all Mega Pokemon, maybe all legendaries, that would be cool. Kinda like in Rom Hacks, where the E4 is really OP.

      • zeldaoreonerd

        who said it was a female champion?

        • Dicie

          I said he/she. Read next time.

        • He/She.

  • Also, hopefully Mega-Pokemon are illegal in Wifi-Battles.

    • Dicie

      Haha, that is a possibility. I hope that they are too, or we will all be screwed.

    • Seph54

      Why would they ban a new concept to battling? Most likely the whole battling scene is going change. From stats, to EV/IV traininh

      • Over-Powered.

        • Seph54

          lol How do you know that? The games are not even out yet, and most likely many pokemon may be getting stat re-balances. You act like there isn’t pokemon with no formes that are not over powered or over used. lol

    • TheNintendoChip

      If they aren’t (which I hope they are), they’ll pretty much go to OU/Uber or maybe have a tier for themselves (assuming theres more than 6 of them)

      • Ubers! They will be with the main Legendaries!

  • Seph54

    I actually like the idea of Mega Evolution. It adds something new to a stale concept. Better this than everything getting new “formes”

  • zeldaoreonerd

    i like everything about it but the name…

    • roche206

      Maybe in English they wont use the world mega.

      • zeldaoreonerd

        hopefully

      • Mark James Colgan

        Other names it could be
        Majestic
        Giga
        Astro

    • DineshThePoet

      It could be Uber. Haha. Ha.

  • Jordin

    When I first saw this I thought it was fake, then I read on and it says confirmed! :DDDDDDD Absol and Lucario look amazing!! 😀

    • Dicie

      I know right! For me Ampharos and Mawile look the same…

  • NLque

    Whether you like it or not, I think we can all agree that this was indeed a “century scoop” like corocoro said it would be.

    • zeldaoreonerd

      indeed and i cant wait to get my hands on one!!!

    • Aelerothos

      Well let’s see what the rest of Coro Coro holds…could be more to this scoop hehe

      • simkenno

        This scoop holds more than meets the eye 😉

    • Dicie

      I completely agree. Especially if they reveal more info… But nonetheless this was the scoop of the century.

    • belmad

      More like disaster of the century

      • Mário Sobral

        the bigger disaster of the century!

      • Daniel Ramos

        I’ve noticed that if you disagree with anything this site will treat you poorly. So Unfortunately, if you have opinions it’s best to voice them elsewhere.

    • Jordin

      We still haven’t even seen the full scans yet! :O

      • simkenno

        I also cant wait to see clearer scans of these ones 🙂

      • Milotic4Ever

        Love your profile pic!

    • Mark James Colgan

      Not even Xatu saw this one coming!!

    • Wes

      I was expecting more new Pokemon. Sure Mega Pokemon are a little special, but I wantz me some mo’ Pokemon!

    • Caitlin

      First time corocoro has made my jaw drop in surprise.

      • Same!

        • fishut564

          is corocoro still leaking or what

          • Sazando

            PokeJungle still hasnt told us the relevance of that girl on roller skates. Gym leader?

            Also a close up of mega-absol would be nice

          • Geoffrey Kappenberg

            She is the gym leader mentioned in this post.

          • Loark A.K.A. Troublesome Treec

            She’s a gym leader.

      • Dicie

        Same.

      • Prince Azulon

        Same here. 😀
        I was not expecting this.

      • simkenno

        Ditto 😉 😀

    • Pangotcha

      Then Arceus said, “let there be megas.”

      • Claus H. Luíz

        Not too sure about that.
        These evolution might have been manipulated by man, not Arceus.
        Cuz, you know, science.

        • Pangotcha

          You dare question the authority of Arceus?! 😛

        • 23Skiddsy

          Based on the fact in the trailer, they have the rainbow helix from the japanese covers over their heads, you may be right.

    • roche206

      Yep bound to be talked by everone who knows what a pikachu is.

    • simkenno

      Agreed 100% and I for one am absolutely loving this idea.

      • Prince Azulon

        Simkenno u are now my BFF. 😀
        I totally love the idea too although.

        • simkenno

          Hahaha Besties lol 😛 😀 Its a great idea though alright, its great to see you like it aswell 😀

          • FactFinder300

            Who am I supposed to worship? arceus or mega arceus?!

          • simkenno

            Id say Arceus, because Arceus might get jealous of Mega Arceus and then a new Pokémon War will occur (exactly 200 years after the first Pokémon War ) Thus spiltting the Pokémon world in two, Opening the Distortion World causing Giratina to rampage, Which disrupts Dialga and Palkia, who travel back to this time and space and there battle begins once again. This tears apart the earth to such an extent that Groudon and Kyogre re-awaken to recreate the land and sea’s. Resulting in their battle once again resuming for dominance over earth. Rayquaza will descend from the O-zone layer to Quell the fighting but on the way down see’s a deoxys on its way to the Polar Ice caps, and thus makes it its mission to destroy deoxys once and for all. This chain of events and battles will lead to the extinction of the Human Race so please, Worship Arceus and spare us all its terrible wrath.

          • Prince Azulon

            I’d say that keeps true to deity characteristics if you know what I mean. LOL ;D

          • FactFinder300

            Sim thought u might enjoy this pic… In the bottom left corner u see the pokemon screen, but the lense messed it up..

          • FactFinder300

            Whoops here it is

          • simkenno

            Sweet thanks 😀 Cant wait for the clearer shots to be shown 🙂

          • Prince Azulon

            LOL, if you look at the picture by Absol it looks like a new Pokemon with an orange pelt, halo above it’s head and huge ears. Almost looks like Fennekin except more masculine.

          • simkenno

            Yeah its awesome 😀 Which is your favourite Mega Pokémon so far ?

          • Prince Azulon

            Lucario, Mawile, Blaziken, Amphaross, and Absol. What about you?

            Edit: I’m waiting for a higher resolution of the pic because it seems the event Torchic’s move-set is revealed.

          • simkenno

            Hahaha no no, choose 1. 😛

          • Prince Azulon

            I’ve gotta say, Blaziken 50/50 and Lucario 50/50- Can’t decide.

            I mean a rogue-Lucario and a martial artist-Blaziken? It can’t get better than that unless Charizard decides to Mega-evolve into Mega-Charizard with two heads, with a Fire/Dragon typing or even better Gyradose becoming the Plesiosarus monster of the Pokemon world. LOL

          • simkenno

            Hahaha im the exact same, Im loving Blaziken but lucario’s also looking as epic as ever.

          • Prince Azulon

            We were meant to be BFF’s all along lol 😀

          • RavenWindSirvi

            Absol FTW!!!

          • Milotic4Ever

            That’s its head and wings in the little corner there.

      • Sunny

        I love it too. But to add butter to my pancakes, I would love a Mega Charizard and Mega Gyarados with a dragon subtype. Added in for the syrup I would also like a Mega Mew form XP

    • FactFinder300

      The poke gods have come back! Where’s my megaPikablu!?

      • simkenno

        Haha I thaught that when I saw that mouse Pokémon that looks like Raichu 🙂

    • Timo

      Now Arceus only needs a mega form with 750-800 BST and we can get pseudo Arceus(s) in the future

      • G-SANtos

        Kyurem’s original form?

        • Timo

          Yeah that could work!

    • Dubb

      I’m a 15 year old and I’m not afraid to say this news made me jump around in my room

      • simkenno

        You and me both, Im 21 years old, was on the bus home exhausted after working 7hrs in work and ended up literally screaming to my friends on the phone about the new images. I also shouted that the new Lucario was sexual……….. I got a few weird looks from people after that haha 😛 😀

        • I cried (17yo) *–*

        • Sunny

          I’m actually 20 and this nearly made me scream “Holy Shit” in class lol.

      • Amber

        I’m 25. I had a ‘Woah’ moment that made my sister run in the room with excitement. She’s 21 LOL

    • Puca Do Monte Silva

      Lucario has an y and Blaziken an x if you look closely.

      0.0

      • Prince Azulon

        That is so true! I knew about Blaziken having the X but I didn’t see the Y on Lucario’s chest. WOW, it seems we have FOUR counter-parts this gen. LOL
        I really need to stop with the counter-part thing.

    • simkenno

      Ditto 😉

    • Milotic4Ever

      At least we know why the game is 1.7GB (maybe there is more to it than that.)

    • Torik

      What was the infamous “century scoop” translated from originally. This now reads like a hint at discontinuation, since they have over a half decade, and thus a new possible game generation to announce about.

    • Mitchell McKelvey

      Never expecting this. While I don’t like the concept at all, I’m glad it’s restricted to just those Mega Stones and that they are optional. Some of the new MegaMons look really well designed, like Lucario and Blaziken. It’ll be interesting to see how this concept truly works.

    • Derek Mcpike

      this site claims the scans are fake. it also says the only real image is the mewtwo. http://matome.naver.jp/odai/2137598021182362601

  • CL

    Holy Crap. If this item is a Held Item then does that mean every single fully evolved Pokemon will get a Megalution ?

    If not I want a good explanation lol

  • Hyu

    Fennekin evol ???

    • Where?

      • Dicie

        Right here:

        • Wheres the image?

          • Dicie

            Refresh the page.

          • K! On Serebii or Here?

          • Dicie

            On here, refresh the page and you will see my picture (courtesy of EliteTrainerXeos) of a leaked Fennekin evo, seen on the right hand side really small next to the Absol evo, where the Torchic is being advertised.

          • Serebii needs to show more! Or the leaker!

          • Dicie

            And Pokebeach.

      • zeldaoreonerd

        in the image where they show the event torchic. to the right of the evo line but it looks like a deer evo

        • Edward Sam

          That looks like MegaAbsol.

  • PokeTev

    Wow I wasn’t expecting this at all…

  • Augusto

    I like them, but I hope there’s more.

  • roche206

    Well looks like Pokemon Smash will need a new female host. If you listen real good you can hear her screams from Japan.

    • Jordin

      ROFL! :DD

    • Dicie

      XD

    • Milotic4Ever

      AAAAAAHHHH!!!! KUCHEAT KAWAII!!!!!!!~<3 (Mawile's Japanese name)

  • Ebony Turle

    Wait does this mean since Blakizen got a Mega evolution does that mean all the other starters will get Mega evolutions? And I’m kinda mixed about the Mega evolutions. On one hand Absol and Mawile get the evolutions we wanted and I’m really excited about them, but on the other hand why did they give one to Blaziken, Lucario and Ampharos who are already really strong and good pokemon. Especially Blaziken and Ampharos who are already the 3rd stage in their lines. I really hope that Farfetch’d and Dunsparce and some other pokemon get these as well because they need it the most, while Blaziken, Lucario and Ampharos really don’t. However I will admit this is a really big scoop, that they said would be coming in this issue and it’s the perfect thing for GameFreak to do to screw with our heads, cause now I have literally no idea what to expect now. Also the designs are really good for these Mega evolutions save Ampharos but I’ll get used to it.

    • TCMets

      The other starters better have a Mega evolution. It’s just not fair otherwise. Gimme my Sceptile Mega evolution!

      • Jordin

        Chespin MEGA EVOLUTION evolution :DD It would be unfair to not give the starters mega evolutions.

        • TCMets

          Hell yeah!!!

        • As I said! I think all the starters will get it!

      • DineshThePoet

        Mega Charizard with Bazookas!

        • TCMets

          Genwunners will cry hysterical!

          • zuhzoo

            I’d love to see what gen 1 megas would be like 😉 (not sure if you were on the comment earlier, gen 1 is my favourite, and I’ve played since the beginning) Anyway it sounds awesome! Especially if they do as good a job with their megas as these! Some of the other gen 1 people who hate change might not like it but who cares 😉 Maybe some will be turned around?

        • G-SANtos

          Then, what about MegaBlastoise?

      • Imoru Imiti

        Fennekin last stage mega evolution fire/fighting. Just kidding.

  • Seph54

    I can’t believe people are complaining. I guess people want to play the same old concept every game. I think mega evolutions add a new twist and allows pokemon that was useless a new advantage in battles now, instead of trying to link a new evolution to a old pokemon(Not saying its anything wrong with it). I hope its more and not just these six

    • zeldaoreonerd

      Exactly!

    • belmad

      Blaziken was really useless in battling.

      • Its in the Uber-Tier. It could get the Hidden Ability SpeedBoost. Also, it could set up with Bulk-Up and become a Power House. It is not useless.

        • belmad

          Like I didn’t know that.

          • Saints5

            It’s hard to tell sarcasm on the Internet.

    • Chicolombia

      I disagree for one main reason. It’s not that we want the same old concept, but all these form changes and so called “mega evolutions” are really getting quite boring an annoying. I’d rather have new Pokemon compared to new forms.

      • I agree with you! They should say Mega-Forms!

        • George Costas

          actually you mean Mega-Formes, with an e!

      • Seph54

        You just contradicted yourself lol you basically saying you want the same old concept. By that way pokemon would have been ended. Its nothing wrong with adding a new concept to a game

        • Chicolombia

          How did I possibly contradict myself? I said all these new forms and evolution are getting annoying, implying that I want CHANGE from all these stupid forms that quite honestly nobody ever really uses. If I wanted the same old concept then I would have been for these new forms or evolutions. Let’s be honest, who really uses resolute keldeo, sky form shaymin, the therian forms, and any other form of pokemon whether it is a legendary or not? Most people stick to the originals. These forms and all this junk really need to stop.

          • Seph54

            You’re not saying you want CHANGE. You are saying you want the old concept back(i.e. release a batch of new pokemon, older pokemon get new evo or pre-evo). You even implying that NO ONE uses these pokemon.

          • Chicolombia

            Just because I say that I don’t want any more forms doesn’t mean that I want the old format back. Variety is needed or else the games get boring. And I don’t consider mega evolutions to be vastly different from forms,they give stat boosts and change the appearance of the Pokemon. This is simply adding forms and calling it something different. When gamefreak actually adds something DIFFERENT, then I will be excited for change. This, my friend, is not change.

          • Seph54

            lol How do you know they give stat boost?!?!?. How else do you think they could possible change Pokemon?!?!? What else do you want from gamefreak? Enlighten me. NO one saw this coming, and its completely different from forms. You making a pointless argument and haven’t even provided what else can they do to change pokemon. You want them to just add regular evolutions? You want them to use Day/Night to make were wolf type pokemon?!?! If Pokemon stayed to the old style. Most likely people WOULD still be complaining about them not adding anything new.

          • Chicolombia

            Ok, I barely understood what you just said. But did you seriously just ask me how I know that the mega evolutions will give stat boosts to Pokemon? What’s it gonna do then? Make them weaker? Because that makes a lot of sense. And it’s not gonna keep their stats the same, because what would be the point of adding them in the first place? What do I want from gamefreak? A great Pokemon game with some actual change. Fairy type was a good change, reusable tm’s was a good change, heck, even the very beginning of forms was good change (Giratina). But giving tons of Pokemon form changes is NOT a good idea AT ALL.

    • FactFinder300

      Gimme some megadunsparce and ill be happy

      • Seph54

        lol Right!

  • neogeokid

    Wow, Mega forms…and I’m so glad Ampheros is now Dragon 😀

    Little meme I made during the break of the news http://cheezburger.com/7726040320

    • ghostycorp

      hahaha good one 🙂

      • neogeokid

        thanks 🙂

  • Augusto

    I wonder if mawile and absol are still basic pokemon, and these new mega things aren’t really a true evolution

  • a

    mega evolution could serves as in battle evolution that people have been wanting.
    think about when your pokemon is backed in a corner than BOOM mega evolution. it would add a lively twist in battle and give pokemon consider lower tier a chance to fight.

    • Seph54

      To bad no one is thinking like this they just want the old way pokemon release. They don’t like new things added to Pokemon.

  • Augusto

    wait… aren’t the new pokemon’s names the ones leaked by pokexperto?

    • Wes

      Only Horubii, iirc.

      • Pangotcha

        Didn’t he also say dedenne?

  • Jordin

    It’s funny that no-one is talking about the person in the scan…Is she a gym leader?

    • Wes

      I think she’s a Fighting-Type Gym Leader because she has a Mienshao helmet and she’s standing in a boxing ring.

      • zeldaoreonerd

        shes a dark type. its been confirmed

        • OMG. SO MUCH! XD

        • Jordin

          FINALLY! This generation is like fan service. XD

        • Augusto

          by what?

        • Wes

          B-b-b-b-but… It defies all logic!

        • Dicie

          Who confirmed it?

      • Dicie

        Which would make Grant a Rock-Type Gym Leader.

    • ghostycorp

      Koruni? Yeah she is.

  • Celedon

    this is what i call my normal stage and this……..this is what is know as my final evolution and this.. is to even further beyond ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!

  • Augusto

    The rabbit looks like it digs with its ears.

  • Jordin

    I am getting an internal server error D: It’s probably from the overload of comments, lol.

    • Its hard for Google Chrome to even re-load XD

      • Dicie

        IKR! XD

      • Jordin

        I know right, my computer is usually really fast and today it took like a minute to load the website. XD

  • TCMets

    A Mega Ninetails could become Fire/Psychic, as it should’ve been imo.

    • A

      Then it’ll be Fennekin’s twin

    • Celedon

      Similar with a Mega Golduck

    • Milotic4Ever

      or Fire/Ghost.

  • Bazooka

    I’m pretty confused, but I wouldn’t like Pokémon one bit less just because of these new battle dimensions!!! Come on you guys!!! I’m dying to see what the supporting legendaries look like!! Thanks alot Game Freak (#> m < # )

  • CL

    Could this be the reason why so much space is required on the 3DS ? The load of Mega Evos ? :3

  • roaringthunder

    imagine mega rayquaza !!!! lol.

    • OH GOD!

    • Jordin

      I don’t think they should give legendarys Mega evolutions totally overpowered.

  • TCMets

    Wait just one second….M-M-M-Mega Arceus? What if that happened? Oh God! I mean, Oh Arceus!

    • FrenzyBurn

      I said that

      • TCMets

        I’m sure there’s a lot of things being repeated, comments going by very fast.

  • Jhiuing

    MegaSkarmory anyone? HAHA

  • ianketc

    I am making my stand, and shall stand my ground. Pokemon has done some weird things but due to my unyielding love for Pokemon. THEREFORE!!!

    “I solemnly swear to embrace this new mechanic with open arms and to disregard any negative comments until this feature has been fully researched, understood and practiced” since there’s no reason to hate it if we haven’t tried it out yet.

    P.S i actually like that lil rabbit, it’s SO going to be a ground type which i love

    • Number

      It does look like it could be Normal/Ground, cause its the Hole Digging Pokemon

      • Wes

        Maybe it’s our regional rodent?

        • Dicie

          Maybe…

        • Number

          Pretty sure it is, it’s only Normal right now.

          Although rabbits don’t count as rodents anymore. I don’t think Bidoof does either, though.

          • zuhzoo

            I said somewhere else, yeah they are technically lagomorphs. Beavers are rodents though! But in any case, it doesn’t matter, it seems to be the regional *small mammal* haha!

          • Number

            Beavers are rodents? I guess I forgot or didn’t know that…
            But hey! This bunny thing’s looking good.

            Oh yeah, the Normal/Flying position was filled by Fletchling, and look what happened with that!

          • zuhzoo

            Yep 🙂 It is a bit weird, but so are capybaras I guess! I agree, looking forward to more.

            It’s true! They are going to mess around with us until the end with this generation 😛

    • It is a Normal Type XD

  • ghostycorp

    I just want to know how did they pick the Pokemon that are given Mega-evolution, cause I don’t really see any pattern here..

    • Augusto

      Looks like whoever gamefreak thinks is a fan favorite so far.

  • Wes

    Hey, guys! Anyone remember Orot?

    I can’t believe he wasn’t shown! Hopefully there are more scans.

    • ghostycorp

      Yeah I’m looking forward to it too, don’t make Orot rot for no reason!

    • Jordin

      There are definitely going to be more scans and more shown of the scans we have now and more awesomeness! (I’m hungry. I’m going to eat potato chips and sushi…maybe throw an eeveelution in there, too.) XP

  • Hyu

    maybe Mega Gyarados can fly lol

  • Majestic me!

    Guys guys!!! Imagine MEGA ARCEUS!!! Now that is something to think about

  • gxm098

    I just love the new pikachu of this gen xD it’s soooo cute xD :3 I just wanna catch it and make it eat an everstone >:3

    Edit: MANIACLE LAUGH!!!! MANIACLE LAUGH!!!!!

    • Its better. It is Electric/Fairy!

      • gxm098

        It would be awesome if it could learn volt tackle!!!

  • xshamirx

    I honestly think you’ll need the two items to get the Mega, Blaziken Knight? I think your Blaziken has to hold the “Blaziken Knight” item and then you can use the megastone on it and then AND only then does it evolve into MEGA Blaziken. IE you need both items to get him.

  • M Romero Altamirano

    this new pokemon reminds me of those early fake pokemon

  • Celedon

    Feels like ssj4 all over again

  • TCMets

    The rabbit is probably the regional rodent.

    • Yea! We will have Peppy from Star-Fox be the final! JK, but it really looks like a mini-Peppy! DO A BARREL ROLL!

      • TCMets

        Well, thanks for giving me the nickname for my new hopeful HM slave! 🙂

        • Welcome! 🙂 if Cut is even returning XD

    • Jordin

      Dedenne (the electric mouse..thing) is so adorable!! When I first saw it, I thought of Raichu.

      • TCMets

        Same haha.

      • zuhzoo

        Raichu is one of my absolute favourites, so I do like it quite a bit. So torn though, it looks so similar, I like it, but why did they make it so similar? Aargh internal conflict! 😛

        • Jordin

          Lol XP

    • Missingno. Master

      Just remember, we all thought Minccino was Unova’s Rattata equivalent back when it was first revealed.

    • zuhzoo

      I agree, but having done animal biology, I have to be really specific… the regional lagomorph in this case, haha 😛

  • TCMets

    I almost forgot! We’ll probably be getting a trailer showcasing these Mega Evolutions in the coming days! Can’t wait 😀

  • Keanno Fausto

    Is it just me or do these look fabulous?

  • FrenzyBurn

    There gots to be more scans.

    • zeldaoreonerd

      please… we are only just breaking the mold

      • There has to be more!

        • zeldaoreonerd

          im positive there are. maybe later today or possibly tomorrow?

        • FrenzyBurn

          Mesa want more scans, or Mesa go crazy!!!!

  • Keanno Fausto

    Imagine a Wailord Megaform.

  • Mr.Anonymous

    Right now I’m torn 50/50 on the mega evolutions. Let just wait to see how they turn out

  • willy410

    I love the designs, especially mega absol, I just wish they weren’t forms and that they were permanent changes like evolutions. I guess I just don’t really like forms

  • roche206

    Don’t get me wrong but is this all from corocoro. I don’t think my body is ready if there is more.

    • zeldaoreonerd

      there are still more on the way i think

      • Missingno. Master

        All this and MORE?! Holy crapping crap!

    • Edward Sam

      There’s still more. They haven’t even leaked the pictures of the Megaevolutions in battle yet.

  • Hyu

    MegaGyarados ^^

  • Jhiuong

    If all the starters had mega-lutions it’ll be AWESOME!!

  • FrenzyBurn

    Yes MegaAmpharos is electric/dragon

    • Jordin

      I posted this on an earlier thread because you might not see it but here you go! 🙂 If you want it with different letters or words just ask 🙂

      • FrenzyBurn

        Thanks

        • Jordin

          You’re welcome 🙂

  • roche206

    I bet somewhere in the Pokemon world Colress is happy now that the true potential of pokemon has happened.

  • willy410

    This generation is going to completely change the metagame!

    • Missingno. Master

      Pretty sure we realized that back when we got the Fairy type.

      • willy410

        I think mega evolutions is going to change it at least as much as the fairy type

        • belmad

          If they are available in competetive playing.

  • Mark James Colgan

    Guys the ultimate Mega….MEGA WAILORD signature move ‘Mega Splash’

        I’ve already posted one but here 😀

  • briant

    I love it I love it all!!!! I don’t care what is leaked! I WILL ALWAYS LOVE POKEMON!!!

  • Number

    Unrelated to Pokemon but did the guest names all turn into
    “a” or is it just me?

  • Augusto

    Okay, so why is MegaAbsol pictured in like, five different places? His feet are shown in two places on the scan with the baby Gogoat; In one spot above them, and in a screenshot. Then, on the scan with the Torchic, his face is seen. Then he’s on the scan with all the other Megas. But there’s nothing adjacent to him, like there is in the other spots. SEEMS FISHY.

    • zeldaoreonerd

      there are more pages to be leaked dont forget

  • Ar91

    wait… whuttt???? It’s like digimon??? I hope this is a big joke, don’t touch the starters…

    • zuhzoo

      Too late- blaziken!

  • TCMets

    I can’t wait to see what Shiny Mega Pokemon look like.

  • S2MewtwoAForm

    So… Corocoro is done or is there more, because it’s been slow this past hour!

  • willy410

    I hope the event torchic is female

  • VirtueSereneGraceAuraHeart

    I absol – utely love everything in these games so far! I am so happy I pre-ordered a few days ago because I would be panicking terribly at the moment!

    I love the Mega Evolutions, they look beautiful! Torchic was my favourite pokemon and now they have given it a awesome evolution! Lucario I love and its new evo looks as beastly as it should, I was wishing that they would give it an evo to fully unleash it’s awesome! I can hardly believe GF has given Ampharos the evolution that it deserved! Absol are they the wings that I have always dreamed of (faints).

    Now all I wish for is that we will get the Mewtwo event, along with Speed Boost Torchic that I have been praying for!

    Hail Arceus! (JK)

    Thank you GF! :’)

  • simkenno

    Wow, just wow. Stand up and take a bow GameFreak and Nintendo. Noone saw this coming at all. This definatly a step forward and I absolutely love this bold move. The designs are absolutely flawless, and some have both the badass look and are as majestic as ever. Seriously, I am just so blown away by these Mega Pokémon. This has made X and Y seem to go from my most anticipated game of the year to the most anticipated game ever. Thank you so very much for this Nintendo and GameFreak. 😀 🙂

    • Mark James Colgan

      Nicely said my friend !!

      • simkenno

        Long time no talk good Sir 🙂

        • Mark James Colgan

          True !! This game can not come sooner :3

          • simkenno

            I know man I have some crazy thing to tell you, apparently we know each other ? Were friends on Facebook for ages according to my page ?? I must have met you somewhere once ? 😛 Not to be rude, because I do think your sound but since when did we meet or did we ever lol haha 😀 😛

          • Mark James Colgan

            lol NO way haha small world, I’m guessing at Nom Con or Eirtakon maybe ??

          • simkenno

            That’s what I presume I noticed your name the last day or so ago, and I was like. HOLD ON ! haha and then I checked back here and bam it was you 😀

          • Mark James Colgan

            Talk to me on FB sometime 😀 I’m not on right now, but I will be later!

    • dewkage

      why a started pokemon though

      • simkenno

        This is my opinion now so don’t take it as fact but they probably choose Blaziken as it has been considered Uber now due to its Speed Boost Hidden Ability.

        • dewkage

          that fine and all but now a lot of people will be wining that the other starter pokemon need them to

          • zuhzoo

            I’m one of those people 😉 I wouldn’t be too upset, but I hope the other starters have megas. I would love to see them! And then there would be no picking favourites 😮

          • simkenno

            Im sure there will but everyone has that little selfish part in them that they would like something in the game so its all good 🙂 Sure even I have it, I’d love a Mega Feraligatr 😉

          • FactFinder300

            If we get a mega machamp I’ll name mine Mega Man (on steroids)

          • simkenno

            Hahah that’s awesome, Im totally stealing your idea in my game if it happens 😉 Muahahaha – evil laugh 😉 😛 😀 🙂

        • Sunny

          I’m cool with this too. Man my 3DS is going to be sewed to me!

    • Dregoon

      Well said my brother. It’s nice to see some open mind and reason in the mist of all the whinning 🙂 #TruePokemonFan

      • simkenno

        Sound man, Nice to see someone who is open minded and friendly in this dangerous Generation haha 😉 😀

  • dewkage

    i just wake up and what happens i get blasted with mega pokemon

    • Claus H. Luíz

      Same here.
      AND I have a slight fever. :/
      My mind is still trying to processing these “Mega” Pokémon. I dunno…

      • dewkage

        i feel you woke up with a mega head ache

        • Mark James Colgan

          that was a mega pun ;P

          • dewkage

            was not intended

          • Claus H. Luíz

            *was not mega intended

          • dewkage

            oh i am mega sorry

    • simkenno

      Not a bad way to wake up at all at all 😛 😀

      • dewkage

        no it isn’t 😀

  • Seph54

    IMO Pokemon X/Y is on the road to becoming one of the best games in the series. So many new concepts being added. I definitely didn’t see the Mega Evolution coming and thought Mewtwo new form was just that a new form. Can’t wait to see what else is coming and hope not just these six have the Mega-Evolution(Come on Dunsparce)

    I also hope that new electric/fairy type pokemon have a evo. The last 3 mouse Pokemon haven’t got no love when it come to evo(Emolga didn’t need that anyway)

    • Jordin

      It already is 😉

    • simkenno

      I couldn’t agree more 😀 This was such an unexpected surprise and I love it 😀

  • willy410

    Mega Ampharos looks like its from a l’oreal commercial! Its hair is just so majestic 🙂

    • Jordin

      It’s so luscious, “What shampoo do you use?” –Animal Crossing Plaza

  • belmad

    Oh god, Megablaziken is Fire/Fighting. Really, Gamefreak? Another fire/fighting starter!?

    • zuhzoo

      It just hasn’t changed, which is fair enough 🙂

    • chico

      you can’t blame MegaBlaziken for being fire/fighting. who was the FIRST fire/fighting starter again? oh right, BLAZIKEN.

      • belmad

        So,Blaziken is the root of evil!

        • RoaringEcho

          Crawl in a hole and die, Blaziken are f***ing amazing, and these formes just make them better.

          • belmad

            Why do I have to crawl in a hole. I didn’t get it?

  • 97gerome

    I’m 100% sure that there’s gonna be a MegaMeganium haha

    • Milotic4Ever

      MegaSerperior.

  • pokemaster yas

    The idea of a mega evoloution is very clever, and noone saw it coming! The new pokemon are becoming more animal like again (as it was in gen 1). X and Y is becoming one of the best generations yet even without playing the game. Nicely done game freak

    • Seph54

      My thoughts exactly.

    • PhoenixRa

      Completely agree!

  • AmonGONG

    New Ability “Big Cheeks” allows pokemon to hold on two different berries at the same time.

    • dialasong

      how would that work?! sounds cool though

      • Mark James Colgan

        sound coool

  • Claus H. Luíz

    Brace yourselves.
    Mega Pokémon fanart is coming…

    • Mark James Colgan

      I actually love that !

        That site makes my browser lag. Dunno why. >:

  • Claus H. Luíz

    WAIT!!!
    If this new look for Mewtwo is its Mega Evolution, then what about the
    PokéBeach rumors that said it’ll be getting a second “form” that looks closer to Mew?

    …Unless that just means Mew will also be getting a Mega Evolution.

    • Mark James Colgan

      My brain hurts now lol

      • Claus H. Luíz

        Wrap bacon around your head. That should help.

        • Mark James Colgan

          Now im hungry :L

    • Jordin

      Maybe it’s in another part of the scans yet to be leaked?

      • zeldaoreonerd

        i hope so

    • zuhzoo

      Oh wow, what would a mega mew be like?

      • Jordin

        Probably that is what it is, the new forms/Mega evolutions are new forms for both Mewtwo and Mew (from the Pokebeach rumors) 😀

        • zuhzoo

          Seems like it could be right!

  • Jhiuong

    If this scan was a hint to what types of pokemons would get mega-lutions, then stand-alone mons (Mawile, absol), mons with duo evo stages (lucario), mons with three evo stages (ampharos), starters (blaziken) and possibly legendaries (mewtwo). BEAST!!

  • Jordin

    I love the new layout! I can finally see the “x new comments above” button! 😀 I still can’t access pages like the “Nintendo Direct [AUG. 8] – AIRING SOON” page though..

    Edit: It’s fixed now! 😀 Thanks Pokejungle!

  • TCMets

    Hmm, I hope Mega Slaking loses Truant.

    • zeldaoreonerd

      definitely gonna get banned then huh?

    • RedstarDirector

      But then you wont get to nickname it Bread and get the dialogue, “Bread is loafing around.”

      • zuhzoo

        Haha it makes me so happy that you must have done that 😛

        • RedstarDirector

          “MegaBread is loafing around.”

      • simkenno

        My mind has been blown, How did I never see this before !! I am definatly stealing this Muahahaha – evil laugh 😛 😀 🙂

    • Jordin

      How do we know every Pokemon is getting Mega evolutions? Or that the Pokemon people are talking about and their Mega- evos will get a mega-evo?? :(( Maybe only a certain group of Pokemon get it?

      • TCMets

        I’m more just hoping every Pokemon gets a Mega evolution. But most importantly for me, I want all the starters getting one.

        • Jordin

          Me too! If there is one for each Pokemon then there would be like 1400+ Pokemon this generation so I don’t think it could happen sadly. 🙁

          • TCMets

            Not every Pokemon, my mistake lol, I mean for every final evolved Pokemon. Like there wouldn’t be a Mega Zubat, but a Mega Crobat.

          • Jordin

            Oops sorry! 🙁

    • Mark James Colgan

      And maybe MegaRegigigas will lose slow start

    • simkenno

      If there is a Mega Slaking I hope it gets Speed Boost as it would be just so comically unstoppable it would be Hilarious…… Until I get killed by it for the millionth time then id be sad lol haha 😀 🙂

      • TCMets

        Holy crap that would be insanely deadly! :O

        • zuhzoo

          Wow yeah :O

      • VirtueSereneGraceAuraHeart

        O.o (cries at the thought)

  • dewkage

    enough of talking about the mega pokemon i wanna talk about something cooler, the New Pokemon Dedenne and the fact it seems to be the new pickachu

  • belmad

    Gokid is really really cute, I want to cuddle it!!! :3
    OMG, it has little tiny goatee, that little cutey thing has little fluffy goatee’!!!!

  • Chicolombia

    I love Pokemon to the death, but I don’t like this at all. In all honesty, I don’t see a difference between mega evolutions and form changes. They change the appearance of a Pokemon while changing it’s stats. Sure, it’s only in battle, but it’s essentially the same thing. Think of it this way, it’s like taking a chicken, painting it brown, and you throw it in the water and call it a duck. When in reality, it’s still a chicken. Mega evolutions are essentially the same thing as forms. And if you can’t tell by now, I really hate new forms.

  • Prince Azulon

    In my opinion, this Mega-Evolution thing seems to be cool but bland at the same time. I call it bland because the idea that Pokemon in the universe use stones to achieve their highest potential goes well with the evolutionary-theory along with many others. And finally, we get the Pikachu rip-off of the Kalos region and our rodent-mammalian Pokemon. This certainly adds to the hype so I hope this is not all that we’re getting.

    • Seph54

      At the same time, this seems to be going along with X&Y concept of chromosomes ,. The Mega Evolution just may be a mutation, as its different from form changes.

      • Prince Azulon

        I agree as X and Y seem to focus on the primary idea of DNA. If so, I hope to see some really cool concepts drawn from the idea of DNA. I hope they finally reveal more prehistoric based Pokemon this generation and hope to see some great combination.

        Joke-
        There is a scientific theory that states that the prehistoric ancestore of the modern cow somehow, someway evolved into the Whale. If so, than wouldn’t Miltank be able to evolve into Wailord. LOL

  • TheNintendoChip

    So I saw some people earlier talking about koruni being a dark-type gym leader?
    Can anyone confirm this or tell me where it was confirmed?

    • Lugia

      Really? Seems more like fighting type.

      • TheNintendoChip

        That’s what I thought, and why i’m trying to figure out if it’s true or not…

        • NLque

          I don’t see any mentioning of type for her. She just seems to be connected to the mega evolution

          • zuhzoo

            It’ll be interesting to see just how she is connected!

          • Claus H. Luíz

            She’s most likely a Mega Gym Leader.

  • simkenno

    This is just a comment to say, I am only a fan like everyone here, BUT people who dislike this introduction to the games, can you please not be so hateful to those that do enjoy it.Not everyone does this but there are some people that are ruining this for others 🙁 Its only an opinion and respect other peoples opinion’s like how you would want yours to be respected 🙂 Were all Pokémon fans here remember ? So lets just enjoy and focus on the parts of the games we like rather than attacking and belittling others because they have a different view or opinion 🙂 Thanks everyone 🙂

    • belmad

      I’m asking this to other side as well; people who are telling us to get out of here and naming themselves true pokemon fans while us haters.

      • simkenno

        Don’t worry some people cant accept other opinions, but with people like myself and yourself and all the other civilised people this can be a great time for everyone 🙂

  • Prince Azulon

    IF, Sylveon gets a Mega-evolution then that would really turn the tide of fans that speculate on a new evolution for Eevee. I hope the starters all get a mega-evolution but alas, this seems so Digimon-ish but none-the-less I love this to death. Certainly the biggest scoop of the century.

  • pichupichu

    Omg that mawhile looks EPIC O.O

  • zeldaoreonerd

    it appears this is where the fan base splits yet again… now its the gen six haters, genwunners and people who will love pokemon no matter what… It’s so sad!!!! 🙁 cant we all just agree that its nice Nintendo and Gamefreak are trying to make positive additions to the games and allow more people to like the series, not eliminate the fanbase?

    • VirtueSereneGraceAuraHeart

      I am a Gen 1 and I think this is awesome!

      • zuhzoo

        Haha yeah not all us gen 1-ers are genwunners I suppose 😛

        • VirtueSereneGraceAuraHeart

          ^^

        • Drew2u

          It’s funny, I’ve played pokemon since Gen-1, get constantly flamed as a genwunner, yet I’d have to say my favorite generation was 3. :p

          • VirtueSereneGraceAuraHeart

            Gen 3 was special to me as it was the current gen when I turned 10! <3

          • Jordin

            Gen 3 is my favorite, the music was amazing! I find myself humming the songs randomly, lol. The first game I played was Pearl since I was introduced to Pokemon during that generation. I grew up with Gen 1, 2, and 3, Gen 3 being my favorite.

          • zuhzoo

            Gen 3 is a serious contender! Had a lot of fun on those games 🙂

          • Jordin

            All the more reason to make remakes 🙂

          • zuhzoo

            I hope so!

        • zeldaoreonerd

          it seems like everyone just needs time to cool down over this is what im trying to say

      • zeldaoreonerd

        read my other comment plz

    • belmad

      I will play Pokemon.
      I will love new generation Pokemon.
      I will certainly appreciate some new things.

      I won’t use these mega-things.
      I hate them.
      I won’t love them.

      That’s my case.

      • zeldaoreonerd

        i just dont want people hating them when they are optional. At least your reasonable. some people are saying they’re going to cancel their reservations because of this!

        • Jordin

          That is just plain…wow, I have no words :/

          • zeldaoreonerd

            exactly! outrageous! right?

          • Jordin

            Why would someone cancel their reservation just because of something optional?! Especially when it’s a game this awesome!

          • zeldaoreonerd

            my point exactly!

          • dewkage

            we get this every time new info comes out it’s always the same thing (new info) *that’s it this is the last straw this gen is official the worst gen now i am not getting this game any more*

            or something like that

          • Jordin

            People are people, eventually we will get used to it and be like “Wow Mega Evolutions are awesome!”

          • dewkage

            i know they we get gen 7 and it starts all over again

          • Jordin

            It’s the circle of life, LMAO!

          • dewkage

            where’s mufasa

          • Jordin

            Litleo’s evolution! (I’m naming my Litleo Simba though)

      • Claus H. Luíz

        You’re mega discriminating against them.

      • simkenno

        Belmad, you are entitled to your opinion, but my advise to you is to try them out at least once, maybe even try your favourite one so you might get a more positive experience. You certainly wont love anything if you never love them. In fact you wouldn’t love Pokémon period if you took that attitude in generation one 🙂 Just try them out you never know you might like them in the end 🙂

      • Nintendalek42

        For me, it’s not that I won’t buy the games, it’s just that it pains me to think of them now. My previous dream of walking through Kalos, discovering new pokémon, and eventually finding out and obtaining the evolutions of, pokemon like mawile, lucario and absol is dead and buried. Now I will walk through Kalos knowing they will never properly evolve, and encoutering a mechanic that I despise and that for me damages the franchise. It’s like the game is contaminated, in a way.

        I know I will probably warm up to them in the end, but to be honest I
        wince when I think Lucario, Absol and Mawile will lack the evolution they deserve (there megas being evos in absol and mawile’s case, a buffed up anubis and not a baggy-wearing dinosaur-wolf in lucario’s case).

    • Drew2u

      The “love pokemon no matter what” class is split, even further, with “those who like pokemon despite obvious flaws of the game” and “those who flame and lose their stuff over any little criticism and claim ‘nostalgia goggles’ on anyone who doesn’t agree with them”.

    • dewkage

      i am split i like the mega pokemon and i think that they could be really cool in the game but game freak could also really mess up with this so i hope they know what they are doing

  • willy410

    Do you think they’re still going to introduce evolutions to old pokemon, or only mega evolutions?

    • Missingno. Master

      I think the very existence of Sylveon answers your question.

      • willy410

        Well I think sylveon was to just show off the new fairy type

      • zuhzoo

        I hope there are others this gen too.

    • VirtueSereneGraceAuraHeart

      Hopefully they will still introduce evos to old pokes!

  • Jordin

    Now that I think about this Mega evolution more and more…Maybe Pokemon-Amie has something to do with this and the friendship levels..This is sort of like evolution and de-evolution :/ Maybe there is like a meter for each Pokemon or some Pokemon and when the meter is full it becomes a Mega(Insert name here)?

    • simkenno

      I dunno,item called the Mega Stone, so that plays a part in how the Pokémon are actually able to enter Mega Mode.

      • Jordin

        Oohh thank you 🙂

        • simkenno

          No worries, it was a minor detail within all this fantastic madness 🙂

  • G-SANtos

    MEGA EVOLUTIONS!!!!????

    This is so shocking. This so sudden. This so unexpected. This is so strange. This is so… delicious.
    Now I know Sapphire will appear in the Gen. VI arcs of the Pokémon SPECIAL/Adventures manga just to showcase MegaBlaziken, because Hidenori Kusaka likes to show every Pokémon, form, and move, even if he has to resort to gratuitious appearances. And if she appears, then there’s enough reason to bring everyone else along, and we’ll get a Dex Holder reunion where Saque (Sird) will finally be defeated by everyone together.

  • Senoel the Turtwick

    Blaziken AND Mewtwo Mega Evolutions, No sacred cows here man.

  • parad0x19

    I cant even speak

    • VirtueSereneGraceAuraHeart

      Don’t worry bro I’ll hold you (hugged by mew)

    • simkenno

      Simkenno used Chatter. *Will it be effective ? *

      • parad0x19

        thank u

        • simkenno

          😀

  • simkenno

    Im going to put my money on Dedenne, the Electric/Fairy-type evolving into a new version of Raichu or Mega Raichu in the end. This is GameFreaks big chance to finally tweak that evolution line slightly without some fans being up in arms about it 🙂 I personally would love if this evolved into a Mega Raichu as, IMO Raichu’s design is just not as appealing to me as Pikachu’s 🙂

    • VirtueSereneGraceAuraHeart

      I totally agree!

      • simkenno

        Cool, thanks for agreeing 😀

    • zuhzoo

      That could be cool, I wouldn’t mind that. Raichu has always been the best for me though 😉

      • simkenno

        Haha I remember seeing the episode where Ash’s Pikachu got pinned by a Raichu to a tree and got a Hyper Beam to the face. I swear the hospital scene nearly had me in tears 😛 🙂

  • dewkage

    Lucario or Absol, i don’t know who’s mega i like more

  • draculaboy

    they making the game more RPG is cool weird seeing blaziiken a starter with a form but more RPG means more intresting game

  • gxm098

    Mega lucario all the way!!!!!!!!!

  • XYMAN

    This made up for the Nintendo Direct.!

  • parad0x19

    sableye mega form WHERE ARE U!!!

    • VirtueSereneGraceAuraHeart

      Seconded.

  • VirtueSereneGraceAuraHeart

    Careful people the level of awesome of those to are dangerous! You might get radiation sickness. (scientific fact)

  • pichupichu

    Giratina and lugia megaform pls 😛

    • zeldaoreonerd

      i think dialga and palkia need them more

  • Vrdnt25

    I find Mega Evolutions too Farfetch’d for Pokemon, but I’m not totally against it. I just hope that if they did it for Blaziken that they would do it for all the Starters.

  • parad0x19

    nah if anyone needs a megaform its slowbro

  • Number

    Anyway, this also shows that the name list Pokexperto had was real.

    • dewkage

      at least a few

  • Dicie

    Maybe there are two leagues: Regular and Mega.
    Maybe there are three difficulties: Easy, Regular and Mega, like in BW2.

  • Dicie

    I think there will be an extended amount of Pokemon in the game for three reasons:
    Fairy-type.
    Mega Forms.
    Possibly old Pokemon getting evos/pre-evos,
    800+ anyone?

    • willy410

      It depends if they count mega forms as new pokemon of new forms. But i agree their is definitely going to be alot of new pokemon whether they’re mega evolutions of not

      • Dicie

        Yep.

  • Samurott

    seriosly? omggg blaziken looks amazing and lucario would need a evolution

  • NLque

    Guy’s, don’t expect anymore information for today. The leaker deleted most of his tweets.

    • parad0x19

      ok

    • Dicie

      Okay.

    • Claus H. Luíz

      When’s the official date for it’s release? Is it the 15th, as usual?

      • dewkage

        the 12th so monday

        • Claus H. Luíz

          Oh, OK. Good.
          Then any English information should be available to us around the 12th, 13th the latest.

          • dewkage

            yea

    • Dregoon

      Hopefully he did so out of fear getting in trouble because if he did so because of people complaining and sending death threats(there has been alot of that going arround recently) about the new Megas then I lost hope for the Pokemon fanbase.

    • jts105

      Thanks for the info we got! You guys are legit. 🙂

  • parad0x19

    well gen 1-4 got mega now we need megaevo for gen 5 so genesect is my vote

  • Patrick Beilharz

    Welp, I think I need to change my underwear.

  • roaringthunder

    Mega eevee normal type

  • Samurott

    pokemon need to get level at 150 lvl

    • parad0x19

      nah keep it at level 100

  • Tears for Fears

    I couldn’t really see Mawile:)

    • parad0x19

      go to serebii

  • Hallows

    OMG I friggin hate this concept, I am NOT buying this stupid game as I am too old to play Digimon now!!!!!!! What a MESS, GameFreak like jumps on every single stupid thing they could do, wait till Fennekin turns Fire/Fighting all over again JUST WAIT!!!!!

    • Claus H. Luíz

      Go away.

    • Samurott

      you are the stupid one here

    • zuhzoo

      Why not give it a chance? Seems like the megas are optional anyway 🙂

    • simkenno

      Don’t knock it till you try it 🙂

    • Mark James Colgan

      Boo urns!!!

    • Dude. Give them a try. Also, if you want more info, Fennekin learns Psychic and it seems like Glow Punch is a Fairy, Psychic, or Fire type attack. Give MegaPokemon a bit of a try bro.

  • 97gerome

    I gave it some thought.. And y’know what? I’m warming up to the Mega pokes. I really love MegaAbsol and MegaBlaziken’s art.. So yeah. Haha

  • dewkage

    Horubii most likely the new rattata

    • parad0x19

      Horubii will dig with his ears( my idea)

  • Samurott

    look it is the new mouse pokemon because all the generation has one

  • jjynx

    I dont like this idea at all 🙁

  • Samurott

    why september??!!!! .-. whe are on agost

  • Samurott

    i like absol!! he looks pretty

  • Derek Mcpike

    I.SO.HAPPY.

  • dewkage

    is the Torchic distribution a international event or only for japan at this moment

  • mike85

    HEY!!! If Blaziken get to have a Mega evolution all the other Starters Better have them too!!!! That is all.

    • dewkage

      i knew it

      • mike85

        Otherwise it would just be unfair I think.

        • dewkage

          i made an earlier post saying lot of people will be wanting the other starter pokemon to get them to

          • mike85

            Haha sorry there are so many people posting I didn’t read all of them but you were right.

  • David Schinkel

    Does Mega Evolution defeat the purpose of giving Mawile and Absol an evolution?

    • dewkage

      why yes, yes it does

    • EliteTrainerXeos

      This is GF way of letting previous Pokemon from older Gen’s have a new evolution while at the same time, not letting them have one. If you get what I mean.

      • Nintendalek42

        And that’s why I HATE Mega-evolution :).

        • EliteTrainerXeos

          Those who can’t adapt to change always fall first.

          • dewkage

            and that is the reason there are now mega pokemon

          • EliteTrainerXeos

            Exactly, GF took a step in the right direction here. Pokemon has always had the triangular based set up. Battling, trading and collecting. Now Evolving comes into play to make it a solid square.

            This feature, is probably one of GF’s best yet.

          • Yet, remember Mega Evolution is more like a form! It is not a true evolution! For example (I believe this is true) before a battle you give Blaziken the Blazikenite (a Type of MegaStone) before a battle. You get into a Wild Battle/Trainer Battle! Then Blaziken will change form into its MegaForm. Then you get to use MegaBlaziken! I think that is how it will work! What do you think?

          • dewkage

            i think that are going to be a lot of special conditions for the mega evolution

          • Timo

            Smogon mind has been blown lol

          • Jordin

            They definitely have some work to do 😛

          • Timo

            I could imagine the work they’d have to do to promote neverused pokemon to uber.

          • Yea! There scrambling right now, to make a new tier or put them with Ubers.

          • Jordin

            Lol if this is in indeed fake then I feel bad for them 😀

          • Timo

            IMO they should put them together with the Ubers but change the name ‘Uber’ ‘cos these Pseudo-evolutions would kind of ruin how Uber works, Uber typically consists of legendaries with large movepools and high stats.

          • Nintendalek42

            I don’t care too much if Mewtwo and Blaziken get megaevos, but can’t you understand why I think Mawile and Absol being given mega-evos instead of real ones is idiotic and superfluous? Also, why the hate? Am I disrespecting your opinion? No, I’m stating mine. No need to call upon my doom.

    • Nintendalek42

      Yes, it seemingly does ( cries, vomits, fantasises about murdering whoever made their evos mega-evos/forms).

  • dialasong

    now I’m picturing mega flygon…

  • David Nixon

    Torchic Warp Pokevolve To! MegaBlaziken! Thank you GameFreak Thank you:D

  • Reece

    Did this article seriously get like 950 comments in the space of one/two hours?

    • NLque

      Yeah, we’re surprised as much as everyone else here.

      • Reece

        Pretty shows how far Pokejungle has come in like 2 years

        • dewkage

          i think a lot of it is the news today no one saw this coming

  • EliteTrainerXeos

    So now that Mega Pokemon are here, it got me thinking.

    What with the DNA splicers in B2/W2, I wonder if we will get a MegaKyurem with it’s original forme combined with both Reshiram and Zekrom.

    That would be sweet.

  • Alan C. D.

    Woah! All of them are totally freaking awesome!

    BUT WHERE’S MY MEGADUNSPARCE???

  • gxm098

    How about a mega torterra??

  • mike85

    Has no one noticed that Coruni is a roller derby girl! Kick-Ass!!! OMG In roller derby the girls have an alter ego name when skating (battling) from their regular selves I wonder if this was the inspiration for Megas.

    • dewkage

      i did make me wonder what pokemon she will use at her gym

      • EliteTrainerXeos

        It’s obvious it’s related to Mega Pokemon, which makes me think that she’ll either be the 8th Gym Leader. Or an unofficial Gym Leader.

        There’s been rumors saying there would be 9 Gyms so eh, who knows.

      • mike85

        Especially since she’s the one to tell us about Mega-evos.

    • gxm098

      We probably will be able to ride our rollerblades in her gym!!

      • Yo, that will be awesome!

    • Samurott

      or maybe we’ll get normal gym and mega gym

  • Drew

    I guess this confirmed that those leaked Japanese names are real, since Horubii is in the issue?

    • dewkage

      and Dedenne

  • Sigurd2021

    Absol could really benefit from a Megaevolution. I have no idea whats up with Blaziken and Lucario. I feel like Mawile could have really used a normal evolution before getting a megaevolution. I still fear for Mawile’s stats. I want to use it so much!

  • Sable

    Well… this is interesting.

    You know… Not like it suggested THIS, but all the official stuff was VERY careful to never say MegaMewtwo, as it were, was just a forme change. Actually, got me thinking, that animation we saw where Mewtwo was ‘breaking’ out of something. Could that be the change into this new state?

  • skullxbones

    These new pokemon forms are cool. BUT, one word.. DIGIMON! It’s ironic that digimons final form is called megas and these new pokemon have mega forms

    • Sable

      Yes, but they are called Mega in English. In Japan, it’s Ultimate. So it may have a name change when it comes over here. We should be finding out soon anyways.

      • Sable

        By that, I mean, Digimon. In Digimion, that’s the name of the final forms.

  • Nintendalek42

    I’m probably gonna get bashed for this, but I still wish with all the power of my heart that we have all been massively trolled. (Keep MegaAbsol and Megamawile as real evos though, they are top notch).

    • Jordin

      I would’ve liked permanent evolutions for them and then give their evolutions Mega evolutions lol.

      • Sable

        An Absol evolution was one of the few things I was actually wanting in this generation. Though, I do rather like this MegaAbsol though, design wise. Doesn’t get the fairy type, though, so there goes that possibility.

  • zeldaoreonerd

    can someone post the link to the names that were told to us in February?

  • simkenno

    I love this new Mega Pokémon concept its fantastic. HOWEVER we all must still worship the normal Arceus as it might get jealous of Mega Arceus and then a new Pokémon War will occur (exactly 200 years after the first Pokémon War ) Thus spiltting the Pokémon world in two, Opening the Distortion World causing Giratina to rampage, Which disrupts Dialga and Palkia, who travel back to this time and space and there battle begins once again. This tears apart the earth to such an extent that Groudon and Kyogre re-awaken to recreate the land and sea’s. Resulting in their battle once again resuming for dominance over earth. Rayquaza will descend from the O-zone layer to Quell the fighting but on the way down see’s a deoxys on its way to the Polar Ice caps, and thus makes it its mission to destroy deoxys once and for all. This chain of events and battles will lead to the extinction of the Human Race so please, Worship normal Arceus and spare us all its terrible wrath.

    • FrenzyBurn

      Or use dialogs to travel back in time and live a peaceful life.

    • FrenzyBurn

      You could also create a mega army to destroy archeus and the conflicting pokemon, and make a new peaceful megapokemon world

    • That is scary!

      • simkenno

        Its happening. We must do this now to prevent a spoiled world.

        • dewkage

          please normal Arceus spare us your wrath

    • dewkage

      please normal Arceus spare us your wrath

      • simkenno

        I was sent from a disasterous future. Pokémon were at war, and in times of slow battles they would spend there spare time playing these games called ” Humans ” ” Red and Green versions “. It was about these horrific monsters that you battle trade and collect…………..

    • Imoru Imiti

      A script for a Pokemon live action film.

  • Nintendalek42

    Some people are suggesting that every pokémon evolution line gets a Mega-upgrade. Despite this news horrifying me, I actually strongly agree with that suggestion as it would make pokémon coherent again. You have this one chance to make me happy again game freak, please don’t mess it up. Oh, and if you do it , make these be Absol and Mawile’s real evo’s please.

  • FrenzyBurn

    Plz let their be more

  • blaze

    What I would love is if Charizard gained a mega-evolution. It based off a chinese dragon and the typing changed to dragon/fire

    • Samurott

      i hope soo

    • dewkage

      mega blastoise

    • Dicie

      This looks like Mega Serperior.

      • blaze

        I don’t see a mega serperior with legs though. But honestly if a design like this gets applied to any pokemon, I would be happy disregardless.

        • Dicie

          Me either, but the design looks like it.

    • Reece

      More like Mega Gyrados

  • Samurott

    Ii hopping the next pokemon smash episode wi would get more info about it

  • I wish the scan shots were a bit more clear! But expect a trailer soon! (:

    • Samurott

      yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh me toooo dude

    • FrenzyBurn

      Don’t we all

    • Jordin

      4 days until the trailer 🙁

      • Yea! We have to wait for sometime!

        • dewkage

          but at least we have some news to tide us over till then

        • Jordin

          We still have some more pages left to leak but NLque said that the leaker deleted some tweets and that we shouldn’t expect more info today. 😐

          • Wow. So he is going to make us wait. Now it kind of seems fake. Yet, I kind of liked the idea. :/

          • Jordin

            We got 1000+ comments on this article already 😀 I hope this isn’t fake now because it definitely is the scoop of the century with more to come! 😀 These really look real though and they’re confirmed :DD

          • Yea! We mostly have to wait till August 12! That’s when the “Scoop of the Century” will be localized and reveal to the world!

          • Jordin

            Maybe Mega Evolutions are what that empty spot in the Pokemon X and Y website top right is (next to the global link).

          • Maybe! I like MegaPokemon, but I want GameFreak to “nerf” them so they wouldn’t be to powerful! There like super-charged versions of the regular evolution! I think the “MegaStone” will break after a certain amount of usage! Yet, it is a cool idea!

          • Jordin

            I’m starting to warm up to the idea. I hope they don’t break after a certain amount of time because I want my MegaLucario! It would really up the difficulty of the game if they do break. Mega stones should last forever because what if they are rare? 😛

          • Maybe! Yet, the Leaker deleted some of his post. So the info has the possibility of being fake. Yet, we have to wait till August 12 when Pokemon + CoroCoro + GameFreak officially show the “Scoop of the Century”.

          • Jordin

            If this is fake then wow he is the best troll ever! >_> I do feel like I have seen that MegaMawile somewhere before..

      • EliteTrainerXeos

        Source?

        • Pokemon + CoroCoro + GameFreak will be officially showing the “Scoop of the Century” on August 12! That’s about 4 days away, depending on where you live!

          • EliteTrainerXeos

            Well, it’s the 8th here, so yeah.

            And there’s more pages?

        • Jordin

          CoroCoro releases on the 12 officially, worldwide release of games and information means on the 12th the site will update and we get the information localized. For me (US) it would be around the 11th I believe.

  • swoobat19

    I wonder how Raichu feels about this new guy.

    • Samurott

      yeah

    • Electric/Fairy! Sorry Pikachu.

      • Jordin

        This is them probably wanting to give Pikachu Fairy type but don’t want more hate from fans about Pikachu so they made a similar Pokemon and gave it Fairy type. 🙂

        • dewkage

          i agree with you

    • FrenzyBurn

      “I should have just stayed breed with a pikachu or raichu, not paturisu. And where them fairy/electric type come from. Paturisu cheated on me.”

    • JP

      Honestly thought it was some sort of chibi-type doodle of Raichu when I first saw it. Its resemblance is striking lol.

  • Samurott

    mega fennekin <3.<3

  • Derek Mcpike

    lol

  • regidudeam

    As long as base stats don’t change…I’m okay with it. But if blaziken ends up with 150 base attack and speedboost and 150 base speed…thats where I draw the line.

    But I would like a megaevolution to the avatar on my left…megashiftry.

    • blaze

      They most likely will or else it will just be an aesthetic affect, which is pointless because evolution tends to mean better. The change in base stats shouldn’t be too great.

  • Samurott

    1012 comments 😀 happy new year pokejungle you are better than serebii and pokebeach <333

    • Reece

      That’s kinda like apples and oranges, yes they all do pokemon news but…Pokebeach is more on TCG, Serebii does everything (and has more detailed info on games)…PJ is more social with lots of rumours

  • Samurott

    i think al;l the shit pokemon like pikachu and magikarp will get more stronger for the megaevo

  • Timo

    Have they confirmed BST boosts? If so I am wondering how this gonna work in wifi, competitions and battle facilities. Are these Mega-Evolutions gonna get banned or are we going to be able to use legendaries along with these forms?

    • Samurott

      I hope we will get more HP

    • I could see them in Uber Tier. They will be with the legendaries mostly.

      • dewkage

        there will be a new tier the mega tier

      • Timo

        Well with the massive amount of legendaries, they’d better have a battle type for banned pokemon too

        • I think they will either get a new tier or be banned! It depends on there stats if it passes 720+ on stat totals. Right now, the Pokemon with the highest stats is Arceus being 720! Yet, I doubt MegaPokemon will bypass that stat range!

          • Timo

            Unless there’s a MegaArceus

          • My God that will be a full powerhouse!

          • Timo

            With BST 800(or 840 since 800 doesn’t divide by 6)

    • NLque

      At this point we don’t know. But, why would they have a MegaBlaziken with speed boost if a regular Blaziken can already have it? I think some sort of BST boost will exist.

    • Sable

      We are likely to get SOME kind of stat boost. Otherwise there wouldn’t be too much of a point to them. At the least stats will probably be shuffled somewhat. How much, though, is the question. At the very least, it’s worth mentioning that if we need to have a held item to use these Megavolutions, then that means you would have to give up other item strategies to use them, so I don’t think they will be the end all be all necessarily.

  • Megalucario

    So basically the mega evolution is the busrt mode of pokemin? Argh I dunno what to say…this is so exhausting.

    • Timo

      I see what you did there, I was initially thinking the same too!

  • Dicie

    Deleting your own posts (tweets) seems fishy, and so now I feel like this is all a hoax. But at the same time I really love this.
    I’m not believing anything until CoroCoro is released or until Pokemon.com releases the official names and such.

    • dewkage

      if serebii posting the info then it is most likely true

      • Dicie

        Serebii was known for saying that the new Mewtwo was Mewtwo’s “Eclair Forme,” which is not true at all. They are not always known for posting true information, but most of the time they do. I am just stating my honest opinion, and as credible as this sounds, I need the official confirmation before I will believe anything.

        • dewkage

          well we will know on the 12th

          • Dicie

            Yes, we will.

        • Same!

          • Dicie

            Good, someone agrees with me finally. 😀

          • I said that before too! He might be stating false info. So, until August 12, I will take everything as a “Grain of Salt”.

          • Dicie

            Same here. For me, the designs look a bit lazy and the overall concept seems a bit weird, but it will become clearer when the official confirmation is made.

          • Yea! It seems really lazy! Pokemon can do better than that!

          • Dicie

            They can do WAY better.

      • Serebii is wrong sometimes! Remember everyone is human so we make mistakes! There is a possibility it is fake, until August 12 when the whole-world get the “Scoop of the Century”. It might be MegaPokemon! So, until that date we don’t know!

        • Dicie

          I completely agree, and you make a great point.

          • Remember they said Jynx was getting a new evolution! Yet, the scan was fake!

  • PhoenixRa

    So…that’s why the Unova starters were that weak? To get MegaEvolutions? xD…i can see them coming…but seriously, every starter will get one, i’m sure about it 🙂

    • Samurott

      obviously!! if blaziken has it!!

    • mike85

      From your mouth to Arceus’ ears.

  • Hugo

    Not sure how I feel of about this. Need more info to decide.

    • simkenno

      Im sure once you try it you’ll like it 😀

      • Hugo

        yeah. I am happy that they are not fourth evolutions, but I need more info on the mega evolutions. I’ll probably use one for my team if they make one for sableye

  • dewkage

    i want a mega scyther or scizor

    • simkenno

      Poor Pinsir, he wants one too 🙁

      • dewkage

        sorry pinsir but your just not as cool as scizor to get one maybe next time

        • simkenno

          MegaPinsir will rise one day 😛

          • Pinsir shall deserve a new evolution! Heracross took all of its glory! Now it shall evolve. (lol Watch Heracross get a evolution.)

          • simkenno

            MegaPinsir vs MegaHeracross 3 stages of hell. 1) Cage Match. 2) Hell in a hell. and Finally to decide the victor 3) an inferno match ! 😛 😀 WWE/WWF lovers will get it haha 😀

          • The wholeworld will watch! Yet, my money is on MegaHeracross. ;( I love Pinsir but Heracross is overall better!

          • simkenno

            If Pinsir was a bug / fighting type then it would be ALOT harder 😛

          • Yea! Now that will be the match of the Century 😉

          • dewkage

            it will as megascizor right hand pokemon

    • Scizor will mostly get it!

    • PhoenixRa

      In Pokexperto’s forum there’s a post from hiro, saying that there will be A LOT of pokemon getting megaevolutions…and Scizor is one of them.

      • dewkage

        last i heard all hiro knew this gen was that there was a fairy type and had no other info

        • Sable

          Yeah, but that was also months ago, back in spring. As the games begin to get closer to release, there is always a chance that he could get more info.

          • dewkage

            idk i think he is just trying to get some attention

          • PhoenixRa

            That’s not how it seems…he just said that, and that the Megaevolutions are only for final (and unique) stage pokemon…and were created to help them to be more competitive.

          • blaze

            Link? please

          • PhoenixRa

            Third time i post it, please read before…

            http://www.pokexperto.net/foros/index.php?topic=40933.0

            The post is there, the quotes where made by “Maestro Arena”…

          • EliteTrainerXeos

            To be more competitive?

            MegaBlaziken, competitive? I see an Overpowered tier coming into play here. x’D

          • Mega Tier 😉

          • PhoenixRa

            Blaziken without Speed Boost is not that competitive…as well as all the other starters…and the “competitive” blaziken (the one with speed boost) was available only japan, not all of us could get it…as well as venasaur…

        • PhoenixRa

          He also revealed Xerneas and Yveltal’s types first…and the post i’m talking about is from a minutes ago.

      • blaze

        Do you have the link where hiro’s list of megaevolutions can be found?

  • Mr.Anonymous

    Why does the title say [UPDATING]?

    • Kriffix

      Because the server is so overloaded by visitors that it crashes when we try to update the post. We actually have sine small things to add.

      • Mr.Anonymous

        Oh, I was hoping it meant that they’re adding more info

  • ILoveNendo

    I wonder if a basic ampharos is now a dual electric/dragon type as mawile is now steel/fairy (even out of a mega-evolution) or if it’s only a gain during his transformation ?
    The kirin-like design of megaAmpharos is really cool ! 🙂

    • G-SANtos

      The scan says only “Electric”, so only MegaAmpharos is Electric/Dragon.

      • ILoveNendo

        Thanks ! That’s kind of cool : so many possibilities for old pokemon to get new dual typing ! Like a MegaLovdisc Water/Fierce. ahah.

        • There is no “Fierce” Type. The current new type is Fairy.

          • ILove Nendo

            I know, it was obviously a failed joke about how Lovdisc is considered as a “weak” pokemon and the mega-evolution concept could help it with some “fierce” (like dragon or fighting type).
            How could i miss the fairy type X)
            Sorry, no more jokes 🙂

          • Oh! I thought it was a typing error. Its okay! 😀

    • dewkage

      maybe cause i find megaAmpharos getting dual electric/dragon type kinda odd

  • Pokemon Blue Hero

    HOLY YHEKJFDS:LOFRHE:OIFJ:LK J MEGA EVOLUTION?????? I DID NOT SEE THAT COMING :O

    • Samurott

      nobody -.-

      • Pokemon Blue Hero

        i know i’m just shocked and excited 😛

  • Mars

    This is the most exciting piece of news we had from Generation 6 so far!! Bigger even than the Fairy-type!! I NEED that Mega-Ampharos!!

    • Pokemon Blue Hero

      Same here! It’s wool hair is epic 😀

      • ;D. Yet, its still 100% not confirmed until Pokemon and GameFreak fully release the info themselves worldwide!

  • Tomo

    I’m so conflicted about this…. I just….. I just don’t know. I’ll have to wait and find out more before finally judging (though at the moment I do think the megas are kind of pointless.)

    But the main problem I have are peoples reactions to it…. In particular the people who are like “I’M A TRUE FAN COS I LIKE IT!!1!” ……. liking it doesn’t make you any more of a fan, people are entitled to not like them and are still just as much of a fan as you are.

    • simkenno

      Im sure once you try it you will like it 🙂

      • Tomo

        I hope so, I really do like the designs, i just feel like they should have been regular evos maybe? :3

    • Dregoon

      By that logic people are also entitled to send hate mail and death threats to GF, Nintendo and the leakers because they don’t like the new changes and can still be can still be considered fans. See a problem because I do.

      • Tomo

        whoa whoa whoa…. I never condoned the use of death threats… don’t even for a second act like i would want someone to do that.

        But why is it suddenly ok to be labeled as a ‘lesser’ fan of something because you don’t like it?

  • Miner

    ummm what about orot???

  • xshamirx

    Going back to the original idea about having to utilize two items. I think Blaziken will have to be holding one item (Blaziken Knight) and then in battle the “Mega Stone” will be used to turn him into MEGABalziken. If done this way it could balance whatever Stat increases it would get. Since you would have to sacrifice the item you use and one turn in battle. Ofcourse this might be too much and render them all gimmicky and semi-usless if they phase you out, but it could be a risk/reward type of thing.
    Ofcourse this is just speculation but honestly it would be one of the few ways these could be utilized without being totally OP. Then again pokemon like Mawlie would still be kinda weak even after you got it to the MEGA stage. Then after battle you’d get your normal Mawlie again.

  • Samurott

    I want a gay type pokemon 🙁

    • what

      O.o

      • Samurott

        what?-.-

    • mike85

      How about Fabulous type instead.

      • simkenno

        Fabulous type. Mostly Special. Fashion statement most common Ability.

        • Meloetta will the star of the type!

    • JP

      eeeh what? Makes no sense.

    • simkenno

      Now now, Mr. Mime females are just confused. 😉

      • Samurott

        I think fairy is a gay type

        • It think it is a need type! To balance Dragon-Types.

        • simkenno

          Are you trying to troll homosexuals or fairy type lovers ? Don’t be a hater dude, its not cool. Be accepting 🙂

          • Samurott

            im gay im not a hater

          • I’m not gay, but its not a reason why you should be trolling everything. :/

          • Samurott

            hahah it was a joke

          • Not really that funny. :/

          • smh

            thats not funny

          • simkenno

            Ok it kinda came across as hating tho ? Im straight and I don’t even stand for that talk. 😛

          • He said it was a joke. :/

          • simkenno

            wow it was really funny…

          • That was just really messed up. Someone needs to return to Comedy School. :/

          • simkenno

            Haah comedy school, you could be the Teacher 😀

          • Prof. Afarr ;D

          • simkenno

            Hello, and welcome to the world of Pokémon Comedy. Im Professor Afarr, and this is a Pokémon joke. 😛 😀

          • I just sound like someone in the battle frontier! I could image you being a champion with a name like that 😉

      • Ms.Mime, Psychic/Fairy! ;D

        • simkenno

          Haha I actually really want a Ms. Mime. 😀

          • Yea! It will be perfect!

          • simkenno

            She could be a perfect Pokémon for the ability Pressure. ;0

          • Hehe. ;D Moves: Doubleslap, Copycat, Mimic, Role Play. Now it is perfect.

          • simkenno

            Hahaha she could be based off the concept of Inner Beauty and just be a total Fug 😉

          • Her make-up is on wrong and everything! That will be a complete laugh ;D

    • Reece

      That’s just all kinds of stupid…

      • He said later on that he was joking. It just sounds like a really rude joke.

  • Samurott

    I hoping in this new generation some pokemon can have three type

    • Too much! Type advantages and disadvantages will get challenging! It’s best Pokemon keeps it at two!

      • Timo

        And don’t forget Smogon, it would ‘BlowTheirMindx2’

        • Oh God. GameFreak will kill them!

          • Timo

            Still 3 types are a bit over the top

          • Yea! I can’t image GameFreak doing that!

          • Timo

            But I can imagine GameFreak promoting neverused pokemon directly to uber(or overused)

    • blaze

      No

    • simkenno

      No thanks.

  • The Fantabulous Guest

    I think I can see why GF did this. Maybe they’re giving mega forms to
    pokémon they feel don’t need evolutions, but are still popular amongst
    the fans and need a little extra boost. Plus, if this is just a
    temporary effect, maybe they did because of the criticism alot of Gen IV
    evos like Electivire and Magmortar received, so this way they won’t be
    permanent conditions

    Blaziken and Lucario are a different story all together though. I think
    that, if anything, giving them mega forms is just eye candy (since
    they’re two of the most popular and powerful pokémon in the meta games),
    so it’d attract the majority of the fans to try the megas out and then
    lean into the pokémon that aren’t as powerful or cool (ie- Ampharos,
    Mawile, Absol)

  • Timo

    Pokejungle, does this post break the highest comment record of your website?

    • NLque

      I believe so.

      • Timo

        I think this post will hit 1500 comments before ‘Calming down’

        • NLque

          I don’t think we’re done with scans either, so we might go 2000 🙂

          • Wait till August 12. 5,000+ ;D

          • Timo

            I could see why

          • Hugo

            over 9000!

          • Vegeta needs a new Scouter. ;D

  • King Phoenix

    everyone is forgetting one big thing…..WE ONLY HAVE TWO MONTHS LEFT BEFORE THE GAMES COME OUT……So to everyone whining that there aren’t enough Kalos pokemon have patience there should be more to this scoop and new pokemon this month(next three days hopefully) and then next month…..I need more info on what the mega evolution is but so far it doesn’t seem like a bad idea

  • denryuu

    Where does the “in-battle only” come in? To me that’s just WAY to gimmicky, even for GF. I’m mainly perturbed by this because I really want actual evolutions/alternate forms of Mawile and Absol and some other Pokemon and not just have it activate randomly in battle. To me that’s just beyond stupidity.

    • NLque

      the fact that it happens in-battle was made by the leaker. Unfortunately, he deleted most of his tweets now.

  • Mars

    Isn’t Mega-Absol getting flying type?! Look at those wings!

    • Dark/Flying. 😉 Maybe!

    • Sable

      According to the text with the images, only Dark*Evil* is visible, so it doesn’t look like it.

  • Pokemon Blue Hero

    Anyone else happy the “pikachu” of this gen isn’t a squirrel :p

    • Pikachu is a mouse! Dedenne is a Mouse also. :/ Yet, it is the Antenna Pokemon. So, IDK what is happening there!

    • Claus H. Luíz

      Of course, it’s not. Why would it have been?
      That’s already been done in gen 4 with Pachirisu.

      Each gen has a different rodent. Gen 6 looks to be a hamster/gerbil.

      • Horubii (The Rabbit) is mostly going to be the Rodent. It is a Pure Normal Type!

        • Timo

          Oh so that’s the Ratatta of this generation, a nice change if you ask me.

          • Yea! BUNNIES!

          • Timo

            I could imagine Dawn’s Buneary falling in love with this.

          • She’s Pikachu’s girl. Also, the bunny looks like Peppy from Star Fox. lol. 😉

          • Timo

            Speaking of anime, I could totally have this be Tobias’ home region.

        • Claus H. Luíz

          …Why are you telling me this?
          Horubii has nothing to do with the EleRodents.
          Just like how Pikachu and Rattata existed in the same gen,
          so do Horubii and Dedenne this upcoming 6th gen.

          My point is that each generation has a different rodent species for these “Pikachu clones.” Squirrel has been done already.
          This gen’s elerodent, Dedenne, resembles a hamster/gerbil.

          • Oh! Your right! Sorry.

      • Pokemon Blue Hero

        I posted that because gen 5 was emolga, a flying squirrel. I was just pointing out that thankfully it’s not another species of squirrel again 🙂

  • Ethan

    No…..no…..no….NOOOOOOOOOO!!!

    • What?

    • Prince Azulon

      Yes….yes….yes….YEEESSSSSS!!!

  • Sleepy

    Gasp! :O Whaaaaa

    Also Ampharos with a wig and a winged Absol <3 so majestic

  • NightSlash

    Really hoping that Horubii evolves into a Normal/Ground type for obvious reasons 😉

    • It seems like it! It will make sense and be interesting!

      • NightSlash

        I said a Groundhog though but at least my wild speculation was partially correct!

        • I can’t see a rabbit changing to a groundhog. Yet, with GameFreak everything is possible! I will be naming him Peppy! 😉 (Hopefully you get the reference) He will be a HM Slave. I usually don’t name Pokemon but he will get a exception!

    • Prince Azulon

      It seems we have three counter-parts this gen:
      Clauncher/Skrelp
      Horubii/Dedenne
      Helioptile/Litleo

      I don’t know for sure but it seems to match up really well.

      • No, Helioptile and Litleo will mostly be in X & Y! Also, Horubii and Dedenne will mostly be in X & Y too. Why because Dedeene is Electric/Fairy and Horubii is just Normal. Yet, Clauncher, Swirlix, and Xerneas are exclusive to X and Skrelp, Spritzee and Yveltal are exculusive to Y!

  • Prince Azulon

    Since Blaziken recieved a Mega-Evolution, I hope for May to return for at least like 12 episodes of the new series and tell Ash all about Mega-evolution and how her Blaziken Mega-evolved. Then, I wish for Sceptile to make his new-series debut and battle with Mega-Blaziken but he loses and he becomes really saddens by it so Ash and him try to find a stronger part of him then, the gym leader girl appears and upon finding out about Sceptile, she gives Ash the stone and Sceptile Mega-evolves. I wish for that to happen. 😀

    • Pokemon X&Y Anime. Needs to fix to a bit of some kinks in there! But sounds awesome!

      • Prince Azulon

        I know what you meant but I had to write it fast as I wasn’t trying to write a real storyboard. 😀

        • Oh! Well sounds great so far!

  • Hugo

    where’s mega Wailord!?

    • Missingno. Master

      Wouldn’t fit in the magazine.

      • He’s right! 1 whole page dedicated to it!

      • Hugo

        Dang, than how is it going to fit in the 3ds xl screen xD

    “Mega Evolutions are only accessible during battle”
    I REALLY hope this isn’t a gimmicky thing like Darmanitan Zen Mode lol. I wonder if it is sort of a set up move to activate Mega Evolution (like Relic Song on Meloetta changes its form?) Or maybe the item activates during battle like Toxic or Flame Orb. Either way this looks awesome and OP as hell. The new forms of Blaziken and Lucario look badass. SO excited.

    • Missingno. Master

      I see this as more of a Giratina/Griseous Orb kind of deal.

      • EliteTrainerXeos

        I’m wondering if it will work like Ditto’s dream world ability.

        • zakh

          That’s what I think. You have a normal Blaziken holding a “Blazikenite” and once it is sent out in battle BAM! MegaBlaziken.

  • Reece

    There’s too many comments and it’s so slow, I can’t even be bothered to go look for my replies….

  • Randomtester

    too many comments

  • Timo

    What if trainers use Mega Evolutions!? :0

    • They will become the Hulk.

      • Timo

        Lol I could see this New gym leader use a mega evolution cos she knows about it

  • Randomtester

    maybe each pokemon has their own mega stone

    • There will be more that 1400 Pokemon! I can see Starters and Certain Pokemon getting it not all! Maybe MegaStones are made in a Lab? Possibles are endless 🙂

      • Randomtester

        maybe the stones are a type each

        • Its not going to be like that! For example! Blaziken gets its own stone which is called that Blazikenite. Then it becomes its MegaForm during battle! So, each Pokemon gets there own stone. I’m just waiting for August 12 for the info to be given world-wide.

  • Randomtester

    what is berries can megavolve

    • That will be kind of werid.

      • Randomtester

        digivolve oran berry

        • MegaOran Berry!

          • Randomtester

            lets say you have absol since you cant use it for sky battles since its mega form has wings is it eligble for a sky battle

          • It seems like it has wings! It will look weird flying!

  • TCMets

    I’m not a competitive battler by any means, but I really like these Mega Evolutions only being accessible through a held item in battle. Basically, you’re giving up using another held item like say, focus sash, and in return your Pokemon gets a different form and likely better stats. It definitely has potential to give lesser Pokemon a better chance in battle. And I would hope all the starters get these Mega Evolutions.

    • Timo

      Yeah i see your point, better stats in exchange for the item slot

    • Randomtester

      like zoroark thats my opinion

    • Sable

      It would be nice if all the starters get it… Especially as I have a nice recently bred Shiny Charizard for it, heh.

    • I know where thats from 😉

  • Chea:)

    There’s over a thousand comments how am I supposed to read the half of these and there still coming wow. I for one kinda like the mega thing as long as its only some pokemon. I feel team flare wants this to force the pokemon to be stronger than their already fully evolved forms to show what they could’ve become, i think the story for x and y will be great and really creative. Can’t wait for x and y but were are the other pages should they not be leaked by now?an where’s the potato chips?

    • Claus H. Luíz

      I quit tryna read comments ever since 500+.
      Just grab your surfboard and ride the comment waves.

      • Cowabunga Dude! 😉

  • Prince Azulon

    Since Pokemon can only enter Mega-mode while in battle, I’m guessing Mega-Pokemon will have OP stats and over-all better move-sets along with the competitiveness of CP, maybe, just maybe they will get band. Or it just turns out that the power-level on the Pokemon become much greater and what used to be the best tiers turn back to watch the Mega-Pokemon Rise.

  • Guest

    So now we need a MegaScizor and my pokemon dreams will be complete 🙂

  • Ultron

    So I wonder if these megaevolutions count as new pokemon, because I imagine there will be more of them but really they aren’t new pokemon, just new forms kind of… They won’t appear in the pokedex right?

    • There forms! But I assume that will be in the Pokedex!

    • Sable

      Seeing as it kind of appears that they are still kind of the original Pokemon, in terms that MegaAbsol is in fact still an Absol, it probably would be viewed in the Pokedex under them. Though, there is the possibility they could put in a Mega-Dex area, that only has them.

  • Randomtester

    does anyone think that pokemon should have real time battles

    • No! That will get challenging its best to leave that for Final Fantasy!

      • Randomtester

        hahahahahahahahahhahahah
        laughing scene final fantasy x

    • Timo

      That would be too Final Fantasy 4+ and would ruin the idea of being a strategy rpg since you would have limited time to think

      • Oh God, image WiFi battles in real-time! It wouldn’t even be fair!

        • Timo

          I cannot imagine this happening

  • My Disqus is 99+ The most its ever been!

    • Randomtester

      mine was at 65

    • Timo

      lol mines still 0

      • Randomtester

        cool

  • Talonflame20

    alright, i’ll be the one to say it. i would have strongly prefered if we got actual evolutions of absol and mawile and split evo for ampharos. not ‘mega evolutions’ which only last during battle.

    i will get used to it

    • Yea! I wanted to see that! Not really MegaEvolutions, it was really unexpected. Hopefully MegaEvoltions turn out to be fake and Absol and Mawile get the evolutions they need! Yet, if it is real I would have to get used to it and it wouldn’t be much of a problem! We just all have to wait for August 12!

  • TCMets

    I wanna see some Mega Skitty on Mega Wailord action. Oh yeah.

    • Sable

      I doubt Skitty would get a Mega Form though*yes, I get the joke* But if one were to get it, it would be Delcatty.

      • TCMets

        Yes, I know 😛

        • Sable

          Sorry, I find it hard not to be the one who has to view it logically heh.

    • SquidzRUs

      HSOMWA – Hot Skitty on MegaWailord Action. Oh God.

    • simkenno

      Please Skittys already Mega in more ways than one 😛 😉

    • Sarah Smith

      HMSOMWA – Hot Mega Skitty on Mega Wailord Action. OMG.

  • Ryan

    Horubii looks like a midget Raichu. Just saying.

    • Randomtester

      no it does not do you mean dedenne

      • Ryan

        Yeah. My bad.

  • PokeBeach updated on the info! The confirmed MegaPokemon Forms are only temporary!

    • belmad

      THANK GOD OH YEAH; GOD, YOU’RE AMAZING

      • Welcome! It seems I was right before! 😀

    • simkenno

      Serebii confirmed this a while ago 😉 😛 😀

      • Hehe! I can’t believe I was right!

    • What a rip

      Who said they weren’t temporary and why does Beach posting it make it any more official lol? I’m pretty sure he just ripped the translations from Serebii or here. To be honest I get the feeling a lot of sites didn’t even really understand about Megatones or how Blazkinite was one of them before PokeJungle explained it. Even now Serebii still lists Blaziken Knight as it’s main translation even though it makes no sense.

      • True! I don’t really know what to believe until August 12!

      • What a rip

        Megastones*

  • Timo

    The Pokemon currently shown has such a random assortment, I find a vague pattern telling us all kinds of Pokemon may get mega-lutions e.g.
    A Starter Evo: Blaziken
    A Pokemon that could have had better stats: Absol
    A Pokemon that could’ve had better stat allocation: Ampharos
    A Legendary: Mewtwo
    A Pokemon that desperately needed an evolution: Mawile
    A Pokemon thats already strong enough but can be improved a bit: Lucario

  • belmad

    Are we going to get real Mawile evolution?

    • simkenno

      Ah Belmad come now, stop hating on the Mega’s.

      • Yea! I like them a bit!

      • belmad

        This is not hating, I’m asking because I want a Mawile evolution along with Sableye one. It seems that Megas are not ordinary evolutions more like form changes like Darmanitan.

        • simkenno

          Good. Lets keep it that way 😉 Also Sableye best get a Mega Evolution aswell 😉

          • belmad

            Yeah, the double I hate, the better it gets.

  • TCMets

    Reading through other Pokemon sites just to gather what everyone is thinking of this, and somebody on Serebii forums made a great point imo. Basically, because GameFreak introduced the Eviolite, they need to be cautious about which Pokemon get new evolutions. So they introduce Mega Evolutions. Now let’s say a Pokemon like Snorlax gets one of these Mega Evolutions, Snorlax doesn’t then become a broken, bulky Chansey on Eviolite.

  • Pangotcha

    Do you guys remember the Japanese trailer when mewtwo looked like he was breaking out of a shell? Do you think this could be the mega evolution animation?

    • simkenno

      This is very plausible and it would look amazing if it were true. 🙂

  • Randomtester

    good news mega forms are confirmed fake check serebii

    • Take a screenshot because I don’t see it! I hope it is fake! 😉

      • Randomtester

        • Oh. :/

          • Randomtester

            do you still think these scans are fake

          • A bit! Until GameFreak release the info on August 12. Until then I’m not taking them as real!

          • simkenno

            They are confirmed real. Also the pictures match the front page of Corocoro magazine 🙂 😛 😀

          • simkenno

            They are confirmed real. Also the pictures match the front page of Corocoro magazine 🙂

      • Randomtester

        no

    • simkenno

      it doesn’t say that anywhere.

  • Randomtester

    i felt the urge

  • belmad

    Me likey that these Megalutions are something that anyone can miss or ignore. Blazikenitittite stone is distrubuted, yeah! Not real evolution but like form change, yeah! And the fact they have given a name to that stone makes me think that there is not so much megatites in game.

    • Randomtester

      me too

    • Same!

  • Adrian Marceau

    I think this is an interesting concept and I’m glad they’re trying to make the new games less formulaic than the previous entries in the series. HOWEVER I have two (small) problems with this (based on the information we have so far).

    Certain Pokemon could have really used a REAL evolution (Absol and Mawile come to mind) and others did not need to get any more powerful than they already were (Blaziken and Mewtwo for example). Otherwise just feel like fan-service for the sake of fan-service (Lucario). None of this will prevent me from buying the game, but it seems a little odd…

    But the real issue that bugs me (at least right now) is the matter of WHO gets these new Mega Evolutions? I’m sure there will be more than the few revealed here, but unless they make it fair the game is going to feel very unbalanced. If this starter gets one but not this other starter, how is that going to make players feel when starting the game? If this Pokemon who already has a three-stage evolution gets a Mega form but this other one who doesn’t evolve at all gets nothing how is that fair?

    Example – Mewtwo gets a Mega forme but what about the other legendaries? Are they not special enough? Will ALL legendaries get a Mega form or only specific ones? What are their criteria for who gets one? Popularity? Same with the starters – Blaziken gets one…. so does that mean Sceptile and Swampert get one too or will they content with favouring some starter over others? Imagine if your friend’s starter has the ability to Mega evolve but yours doesn’t just because Gamefreak didn’t think they were popular enough – doesn’t seem fair.

    I hope they prove me wrong, but the effort of creating Mega Evolutions for at least all the starters thus far would be a lot of work so I’m worried that they’re going to be lazy (like they were with “Combination Attacks” which went absolutely NO WHERE). 🙁

    • Randomtester

      i remeber those

      • Adrian Marceau

        When they were first revealed I was quite excited. Super excited actually. But instead of having an oath move for every type we found out later that only Fire, Grass, and Water had one and we also found out later that only the three starters could use them. How often do you have the three starters on your team? Like ever?

        Don’t get me wrong, I love the Pokemon games and I’m buying them anyway – I’ve just been disappointed by their half-baked approach to new features before. HeartGold and SoulSilver made TONS of progress with menu usability and shortcuts and they were all abandoned with the next games in the series. Same with the Pokemon following you – why did they remove it?! 🙁

        • Randomtester

          laziness

        • simkenno

          To answer your question the reason it was removed was because many of the developers did not enjoy the feature themselves as they found it took the entire ” travelling alone experience ” away from the game, and when a couple of thousand fans complained that it could not be turned off they decided against it for future games.

          • Timo

            A couple thousands?!

          • simkenno

            YEAH, the world has more crazy people than we think 😛

    • blaze

      I’m almost positive that it will be a stat redistribution rather than the base stat increasing. Because I believe mewtwo will retain it’s 680 base stat

  • Randomtester

    i wonder if any one knows anything about gen 7

    • Timo

      Lolwut?

      • Randomtester

        dont you just wonder

    • Wes

      You’re kidding, right?

      • Randomtester

        no i am just wondering

    • simkenno

      I know they will be released in 2017 and will feature a smell-ometer. So you can smell everything in the game from the Nintendo 4ds 😉 Lol jk

    • Randomtester

      maybe megalutions are pokemons dormant genes awakened and the watch is an awakener thing

  • Senoel the Turtwick

    I just realized that, with current information. Mega evolution is just standardized form changing for previous Pokemon. (In other words, no mega evolutions for Kalos Pokemon until Gen VII

    • Randomtester

      i disagree

      • Senoel the Turtwick

        This isn’t a matter of opinion, with the current information so far, there are only two things that separate Mega evolution from form change.

        They’re all done the same way supposedly (Megastone)

        They’ve only been done to previously existing Pokemon.

        Unless you disagree with the Gen VII statement, in which case, there’s no valid argument either way. just speculation.

        • Randomtester

          i disagree tenfold

          • Senoel the Turtwick

            I’m still confused about what you’re disagreeing about.

          • Randomtester

            me too

  • defensivebastiodon

    Too fishy. I doubt they would really fool with starters and such. However the pre evolution looks looks like what was seen in the background of an earlier trailer…

    • suidio

      Its all real, they aren’t evolutions, just new forms for battle with enhanced stats

  • RED

    Holy crap!!! Did not expect that! Well played corocoro!

  • cam100

    R there gunna be more scans or are these the only ones?

  • Thami

    I’m a little sceptical towards these news, but I have to admit that their “megaforms” look awesome! 😀
    And does this mean that the rumoured japanese names that was published here a few weeks ago has been confirmed as legit now that Horubii has been announced?

  • Milotic4Ever

    I am 19 years old and never before have been excited about games before. Since these are temporary and only during battle, many people can relax as there is no “4th evolution”. I Think these could play out in battle as far as having the same base stats, just switched around. (Imagine a MegaShuckle being more offensive and less defensive or a Mega/All Starters that differ from their initial stats, yet maintain there BASE STAT TOTAL.)

    Also, BLAZIKENITE!!!

    EDIT: Just imagine Mega/Psuedo Legendaries.

  • RED

    Why is there so much hate? I have to give gamefreak some credit for trying something new at least. We don’t know if these things are overpowered or not. I like the the designs though.

    • FrenzyBurn

      Same

    • PhoenixRa

      Agree, Gamefreak is trying something fresh and new! It’s about evolve or die…i’ll give them opportunity with no doubt.

    • Timo

      I kind of discussed the usability of Megalutions a while back, i think there’s gonna be a battle mode specifically for megalutions and legendaries

    • simkenno

      Some people need a good double-slap 😛

  • PhoenixRa

    Im so happy that my first pokemon (Blaziken) will have a MegaEvolution! Yeaah!

    • Randomtester

      what generation did you start pokemon

      • PhoenixRa

        Third, Torchic was my starter 🙂

        • blaze

          me too, I have my lv. 100 blaziken from emerald in my white right now c:

  • Senoel the Turtwick

    At first, I hated Mega Evolution, now I dislike it.
    really, at this point it’s the name that is bothering me. It’s not really evolving, just form change.

    • Milotic4Ever

      Pokemon became 20% cooler, what are you talking about?

  • Chad

    What makes Blaziken so special? Hopefully the other starters become mega as well…. i wanted to see more new pokemon, starter evolutions more specifically. But it’s only two months away.

    • Suidio

      They aren’t new Evolutions as in a 4th stage, Think of them as a new form, kinda like meoletta, they can only be used in battle

  • cam100

    im really confused now.. r these new evolutions or optional evolutions? are they 4th way evolutions or forms? Do u need a stone or item? i keep hearing difrent things and i dont know what to believe.. Can anyone please clarify? or is it that know one knows much at this time?

    • Suidio

      They are forms only usable in battle with a held item after unlocking mega evolutions

      • cam100

        And i take it know one knows how to unlock these forms yet?

        • suidio

          It is with held item for the pokemon, not sure how you get the items yet but the distributed torchic will come with the item. Kinda like the Gresious orb for Giritinas Origin form

          • simkenno

            You must have the Mega Stone and hold it in battle.

  • defensivebastiodon

    I doubt Gamefreak would complicate things that much. It could be fake scans leaked at the perfect time.

    • Suidio

      They are official Scans! the name MegaEvolution was trademarked by GF

    • Hunter Simmons

      They’ve been confirmed. The actual cover of CoroCoro shows MegaLucario.

      • defensivebastiodon

        Still not sure I like it, but it will probably grow on me.

        • Milotic4Ever

          Trust me, it will grow like a Foongus on you ;D

          • defensivebastiodon

            As long as Carnivine gets one, ill be able to actually use a floating Venus flytrap in a sky battle. Hopefully this will bring better stats to previously useless pokemon.

          • simkenno

            Your Profile Pic looks Sassy. 😉

          • Milotic4Ever

            Thank you!

  • CL

    Is the Speed Boost Torchic being distributed Worldwide ?
    Because if so I just realized we’ll ave two starters lol XD

    • simkenno

      Id imagine so. But if its not I swear……. I swear im going to Japan 😉

    • simkenno

      3 if the rumor that we receive a kanto starter aswell is true 🙂

  • belmad

    Ampharos looks like Daenerys.

  • jason moore

    Pretty cool but there has to be more mega evolutions then that hopefully. Wish they would release the games earlier its killing me waiting lol

  • Number

    If I’m reading the scan right the Blazikenite isn’t obtainable during normal gameplay.

  • jason moore

    and can anyone tell me if there will be more corocoro leaking or is this it

    • Timo

      there’s more, we need clear scans of the magazine which will come out 12th of august, some of the things were not really clear

      • jason moore

        thanks

        • Timo

          you’re welcome 🙂

  • RavenWindSirvi

    I have noticed that really all of the mega Pokémon have an x or y
    3 for each letter
    X’s–Blaziken, Ampharos, Absol
    Y’s–Lucario, Mawile, Mewtwo

    • Why will Mewtwo not be in both games? Why would they cut a Pokemon as awesome as that :/

      • RavenWindSirvi

        I don’t think that they are exclusive to any, but the way they are drawn the form either a x or y.

  • simkenno

    Hold on now. Im seeing some people saying that this a lazy excuse to add Pokemon and features to Pokémon X and Y. These games are by far the furthest thing from laziness. There has been HUGE effort put into this game and they have given us fans so much. There is a point where they cant give anymore in one go in a short space of time, and then you call them lazy ? There saying they love Pokémon and are buying the games. Then show respect aswell !!! Theres TONS of new features and gameplay, 3d graphics, new evolutions, Pokémon Amie, new pokemon, new forms, new , new, new. This is by far the most amazing Pokémon game IMO so far. So its not fair at all that you call this lazy. Some people are coming across as a spoilt fan’s who just keep wanting more, well guess what ? You will get more but be respectful and patient.
    Thankfully the majority of us fans here are not like this at all. If we all stick together we can drown out people making ridiculous comments like this 😀

    • Timo

      I totally agree with you

      • simkenno

        Cheers man 😀 It just eally annoys me how some people can end up being so ungrateful when they are getting so much. 🙁 🙂

        • Timo

          Its like they’re semi-genwunners

          • simkenno

            Hahaha its only a matter of time until the rest of the Pokémon Universe see this, and the GenWunners break away from their GameBoys to complain about games that are made nearly 15years later 😛

          • Timo

            Lol Genwunners can be so annoying(no hate on ppl who like x/y but like older gens more)

          • simkenno

            I don’t really care what gen are peoples favourite, its just when people who favour ANY generation start bitc*ing about another generation for literally no reason, other than they didn’t like it for one ridiculous reason. Eg I hated Gen 4 because Mt Coronet was too hard for me so I gave up. Or I hate Gen 5 Because of Garbodor ! Hhaha that IMO is soo annoying 😛 😀

      • Your Icon is a Digimon…. GET HIM! Jk. ;D

    • Pokemon Blue Hero

      Pokemon XY is revolutionary!!

      • Timo

        More revolutionary than Black and White

      • belmad

        Megarevolutionary

        • Timo

          I couldnt almost pronounce that lol

      • simkenno

        Indeed it is, I am very excited for this game and personally I think it looks like the best game in the series so far.

  • TheRece25

    Cant Wait to use Dedenne! =]

  • z

    I think my theory on almost every fairy egg group pokemon becoming half fairy is becoming more true. Not 100% still but, seems like the guess is sorta right. The mouse looking pokemon looks nothing like a fairy at all, yet it does resemble all the pokemons that looked like pikachu, which all happen to be in the fairy egg group (besides emolga).

  • Milotic4Ever

    One word: MEGAEEVEELUTIONS!!!

    • Sable

      I don’t know if the world could handle it.

    • Number

      Flareon desperately needed a boost, this is a big chance!

      • It got a boost in 4th and 5th gen with the added Fire-Type physical attacks!

        • simkenno

          But its speed is just awful for it, and it didn’t learn any hard hitting fire type physical moves naturally. That was the main issue people had, 🙂

          • True! You mostly needed TMs. Yet, give that thing Flame Charge… Pure Physical Powerhouse. ;D I know Flareon was a problem in Generation 1-3, when I was younger I loved using it, but now I know that it is not as good as I thought! It happens to every kid when they learn more about Pokemon!

        • Number

          It didn’t anything but the most meager acquisitions. It just kept becoming more and more inferior to other fire types like Arcanine, Entei, and Darmantian.
          I mean, Return does more damage than Fire Fang.
          Jolteon’s Wild Charge even does more damage than Fire Fang, and Jolteon’s a special attacker!

          • True! I see your point! Flareon needs a special helping from GameFreak. ;D

    • simkenno

      There needs to be a dragon eeveelution now ! MEGADRACONEON. Sweet Jesus Megadraconeon’s name has me literally weak 😛 😀

  • Guest

    Get on the HYPE TRAIN!!!

  • belmad

    Seriously, hater of haters guys are more annoying than haters. They are even calling people by name. People can hate one feature of the game right? It looks like they don’t even allowed to have oppinion. Ooops, i just become a hater of haters of haters.

    • simkenno

      Except having an opinion is totally different than literally going out of your way complaining about the feature you dislike, repeating the same stuff constantly then disagreeing with everything and leaving negative comments to others that enjoy the feature. 🙂

      • belmad

        Like you don’t repeat stuff when complaining about people who hate.

        This place is for agreeing and disagreeing. This place is for stating opinion; negative or positive.

        This is where negativity bias comes in. The negative comments get all the attention. It’s a natural phenomena, I understand that.

        • simkenno

          I love how you decided to try make an example there of me when I never accused you of anything, that is a general statement I have written. Also I am quiet fair to everyone on this site, and in fact I have defended you before Belmad. This proves the immaturity you have and shows you cannot value another opinion.

          • belmad

            Would it be good when someone said that “I can’t understand people who love this feature. They’re just ridiculous. Let’s get them out of here” kind of thing?

            That’s what I’m talking about.

          • simkenno

            Theres no point arguing with you, you cannot appreciate this so im not wasting my time explaining that this is a good thing to you.

          • belmad

            I would appreciate argueing with you but if you are seeing this as wasting time, ok.

          • simkenno

            I don’t argue, I give facts and try to help people understand something, im in no way trying to be a jerk, so if I come across as one, please know that’s not my intention.

          • belmad

            And also I felt really disturbed when you called me immature because I have never told anyone that his or her comment is ridiculous.

          • TheRece25

            I agree with Belmad… ( -_-)

          • simkenno

            Ok ? And ?

          • TheRece25

            Ok and That’s all I had to say.. Back off before you get even More annoying

          • simkenno

            Nah im good, you obviously were not thaught manners telling people to back off giving threats over the computer haha. And judging by your other comments your a failed troll. Ok off you pop now, annoy someone else for a while 😛

          • TheRece25

            Dude.. I’m thinking the Exact same thing about you, Except I have more proof to prove your a troll based on all that you have said here. You didn’t seem to have a problem earlier when Someone said they agreed with you on something else.. All they said was that they agree with you and you were so happy about it and did not ask for an explanation! But when someone disagrees with you, you feel threatened… get offline for a little amount of time Please. you need fresh air to help you think better obviously =/

          • simkenno

            Actually he said he agrees with me + more. And Your talking nonsense now, have a little look through my comments and the amount of people that have responded positively to my open mindedness. So next time you accuse me of being a troll you might want to ask some other regulars on the site, who will Prove Im not. So until then unless you have an accurate comment or want a civilised conversation about the Great new features introduced today then, there is no need for you to reply. Have a nice day 🙂

          • TheRece25

            Actually he said more After you praised him for agreeing with you, Your not a very likable person online it… well when it comes to “debates” you act like a child who has never heard of the word.. I will allow you to waste no more of my time. Go get an education and learn to value other peoples views and know that your thoughts and opinions are not always right.. this is Just Pokémon after all.. if you can’t do that here then.. where can you? How sad =/

          • simkenno

            Haha oh dear, another loser troll. I feel sorry for your parents they must not have thaught you to be civil, respectful and not resort to childishness. ” Go get an education ” Please, as it can be seen from ALL my comments on this site, I value all opinions, please return under your bridge and stay there until you bring something to this conversation that is both relevant and civil. Also as for your comment about me not being likeable, that’s your opinion, however fact proves I am a likeable person. I have even made friends on this site with people I have never met before due to us having adult conversations and having a good time, sadly unlike trolls like you who cant appreciate a good thing to happen to Pokémon. Good day 🙂

  • Ben

    Okay…now that I know that it’s an in-battle effect, I like it a lot more…bring on the megas!

    • simkenno

      That’s one more converted 😉 😀 welcome.

  • Mitchell McKelvey

    Is there more pages of CoroCoro left to be leaked? Does anyone know?

    • Ben

      Yeah, where’s Orotto??

      • Mitchell McKelvey

        Exactly what I am thinking.

    • Sable

      This tends to happen, us getting bits and pieces of the scans instead of the full things at once. If you notice, right above the three new Pokemon, there is a seperate page with Mega Absol, along with what looks like will be a battle screen with him in it. Though, it WOULD be a bit strange not to have Oorotto…

      • Mitchell McKelvey

        Yeah. I hope we get Oorotto with this. He looks awesome!

      • Timo

        Was the pun intended?

      • Mitchell McKelvey

        http://www.serebii.net/corocoro8133.jpg What is that little orange fist like thing that is in the bottom right hand corner? Do you think it’s a MegaMon or a regular Pokemon or something that we’ve already seen?

        • Sable

          I can’t tell. It doesn’t look like anything I’ve seen, and really there are not enough details to even hazard a guess.

        • Wes

          It almost looks like Darmanitan’s fist, but I would need more details for a more accurate guess.

        • I don’t think they showed much!

  • Timo

    So almost 1500 comments in 24 hours, Wow just Wow. This really is the biggest scoop of the century

    • We still have to wait till August 12. ;D

  • Sable

    I’m surprised no one has been bringing up what the new abilities are shaping up to be. Mega Absol getting Magic Bounce, adding yet another person to dissuade Stealth Rocks *I wonder if that’ll be a trend* Mega Mawile having Huge Power, meaning it’s likely to get a nice attack boost regardless of how the stats pan out. Then Lucario has Adaptability… Meaning 2x STAB, instead of 1.5. And coming off of something that’s actually dangerous, that is simply brutal.

    • Timo

      This are some of the reasons why megalutions will be in smogon’s uber tier

  • Jaymck2103

    Surprisingly no info on Orotto…

    • Timo

      well the magazine hasn’t even been released so you should expect some more info soon

    • simkenno

      Give it time, there will be more 🙂

  • Miniryu-Ninja

    I am actually really loving these but it is all a bit Digimon remeniscant…

    Like when you thought MetalGreymon was amazing then suddenly “Agumon WARP digivolve” (screen breaks) WHAT?!? W..War Greymon?

    I mean someone that doesnt read into the news and leaks is gonna freak when their Blaziken suddenly evolves mid battle lol

    • TheRece25

      Its is Very Digimon-esk.. No one can deny that now.. But I have Always Loved Digimon and Pokémon deserves to get a little crazy from time to time to haha, I am sure they will make Everything balanced

  • NurseStephen

    Has CoroCoro not fully leaked, and do we know for sure if this is real or not? The Internet is confusing me! D:

    • thatoneguychris

      it is real

    • simkenno

      This is 100% real, it has been confirmed. Also the Mega Lucario is featured on the cover of CoroCoro magazine.

  • thatoneguychris

    Well one thing im glad about is that this debunks the whole potato chip and sushi pokemon thing.

  • Kriffix

    MegaMeganium…MegaMegayanma (Japanese only)

  • Rotik

    Chou Badassu Modo confirmed.

    Five of the new “Mega Evolutions” also appear to draw inspiration from one or more legendary Pokémon, Mewtwo resembles Mew due to the immense weight and height loss. Absol gains wings and appears to be influenced by Reshiram, note the initial Absol design having Yin and Yang as possible design element. The color change of Blaziken is reminiscent of Yveltal, while the new sideburns of Lucario look like the tentacles of the legendary Giratina. Ampharos’ new typing and ability can be interpreted as a parallel to Zekrom or even Reshiram. Mawile however, is … well … you know … inspired by …

    This is of course wacky speculation with little to no but likely not even near sufficient foundation. After initial rage over the name, i quickly remembered that “Mega” isn’t even present in the japanese Digimon evolutionary stage table – their pendant is instead called “Ultimate”. Then i got to appreciate this careful altered designs but now i am longing for the official explanation.

    • Timo

      wait that translates to something like super bada** mode

    • simkenno

      I actually love the Mega Blaziken, I think its design is simply Awesome and Flawless 😀

  • TheRece25

    I’m still waiting for my Pokémon to be able to evolve mid battle though =/

  • z

    aha! i knew those names sounded familiar. horubii and dedenne are some of the pokemons you guys had on the list of 14 new pokemon. it’s legit! http://pokejungle.net/2013/07/17/speculation-14-new-xy-pokemon-revealed/

  • Sable

    I was doing some reading, and I found out something kind of interesting. Denryu, Ampharos japanese name. It basically means Electric Dragon. All this time. Getting the Dragon Type suddenly makes a lot of sense

  • Ultron

    To be honest I kind of hope the other starters don’t get mega forms unless they don’t count as new pokemon because that would take up 17 new pokemon slots. Sure I would love a mega charizard as much as the next guy, but I would take new pokemon over more megas

  • Just can’t wait for 4 days! I really want August 12 to come up! So we know if Mega Pokemon were the “Scoop of the Century” or if it was fake. I want to see a trailer and some confirmation. Also, Oorotto was not in the CoroCoro as I expected. Yet, hopefully it will be in the trailer! I can’t wait for that date! ;D What do you guys think about Mega Pokemon? I have mixed feelings about it! Yet, it’s starting to come to my good side! I might give it a try! 🙂

    • simkenno

      My bro ! Where you at haha ? Your missing all the trolls attacking me 😛

      • Where?

      • Dregoon

        I saw that shit. Don’t worry about the trolls man, just laugh at them lol.

        • simkenno

          Yeah its all good, it just bothers me when people say I don’t respect people’s opinions 🙁 Im one of the people who always values and respects them :/ As sappy as it sounds its good to know even though we don’t know each other that well, I have friends here like yourself 🙂

  • Chicolombia

    I’m still waiting for my sushi ‘mon…

  • Nintendalek42

    As my head cools down on this matter, I must admit this still seems a bit fishy. The whole concept of mega-evolution, and the very pokemon chosen to illustrate it (mewtwo, blaziken), scream “fanboy’s dream come true”. Even now I’m getting use to the whole situation, my slowly waning wish that all this should be a hoax is turning into honest suspicion. We will know soon enough anyhow. If it is fake (which by now I can base on nothing more than an objective hunch), this will be the best hoax ever pulled off in the fandom…

    Even if this does turn out true, I’ll never stop clamouring for lucario to get a proper evolution, and for Mawile and Absol’s megas to become available outside of battle. (If this is a hoax, these are the kind of evos I want).

    Anyway, enough of the hunches and ranting, here are a few thoughts:
    -if this is battle-only, that means they can make more megas for the remakes or sequel(s)… And block them from battling with or patch them into X/Y.

    – what seems to be an activation of pokémons genetic potential may be turned into a permanent evolution possibility if the sufficient technology is developped in the pokemon world… Who knows, maybeAbsol and Mawile’s megas can become evos in later games… Though it means saying hello to 4-stage lines and legendary evos.. And mayb e Alomomola was a secret MegaLuvdisc all along! I Solved it! MWAHAHAHA!
    Hang on, if mega-evolution is human-induced, poké-ethics goes out of the window!
    Wait till N hears of this!

    As I end this comment, there is still a lingering feeling that this cannot possibly be true… Maybe I’m imagining what I want to. But you must admit that if you think of it objectively, this may all seem a bit too strange… However real it seems, it’s not impossible to fake. The chances of a hoax are as slim as they get, but think of it a bit and you will see that wether you like this change or not, this “big scoop” maybe a bit too “big” for comfort…

    • Pangotcha

      Dude. It’s already been proven true.

      • Chicolombia

        In his defense, nothing is proven true until the 12th. I don’t care if it’s so called “Serbii confirmed” or whatever, because last time I checked, Serebii is neither Corocoro nor Gamefreak.

        • simkenno

          The MegaLucario is on the cover of CoroCoro.

          • Chicolombia

            That means absolutely nothing. Corocoro covers are faked all the time as well. Until it hits store shelves on the 12th, it’s not official.

          • Nintendalek42

            Oh, and no one can fake a cover? I know what I’m saying is, far-fetched, but you must admit there is always a possibility of this being false…

          • Dregoon

            Also the names of the rabbit and fakachu were on a list of rumors that had the 14 names a while back.

          • Not going to be rude dude. But it is really easy to Photoshop a CoroCoro Cover Page. Just get a bunch of Japanese images. Also, it seems the Leaker didn’t show much and he also started to delete his tweets about Mega Pokemon too!

          • Kriffix

            The leaker was getting really flamed and seemed genuinely upset so he took them down. I think he freaked out a bit which is understandable.

          • Maybe! Yet, that is a bit fishy. Still, I enjoy Mega Pokemon. Yet there not needed. Still its just a form change! This happened for Mewtwo too!

          • simkenno

            That’s true man 🙂 Guess we just have to wait for more scans. Hahah, I do hope its true, but personally I am 100% convinced. 😀

          • I’m 85% convinced! Until August 12 (IDK How many times I have said that lol ;D) when GameFreak releases info about the “Scoop of the Century” and if it is Mega Pokemon! Then I will believe it! 😀

          • NLque

            The reason he deleted his tweets were because he couldn’t take the criticism of the Pokecommunity on twitter. Of course, that could just be a cover up, and he didn’t specifically say he deleted it because of criticism, but it does seem like this guy was just trying to share something he found with a few of his friends, only to be RT’d throughout twitter.

          • True! We don’t know till August 12.

      • Nintendalek42

        Not officially it hasn’t. There is an (ok incredibly slim )chance that this is all an elaborate hoax. Honestly “mega evolutions”? Doesn’t it feel a bit like a strange dream/fanboy wish come true?

        • Pangotcha

          Well it was in corocoro. Serebii had the cover page to prove it, and I don’t think corocoro would lie

          • Nintendalek42

            The Corocoro could have been faked, including the front page. I perfectly understand why you and the majority of people believe it’s true, because it does seem very legit, and I personally believe it’s probably true, but I nonetheless feel this whole thing is a bit strange. It’s perfectly in the realm of possibility for a (very skilled) faker to pull this off, but I agree this is more likely to be legit. I’m just not 100% sure.

    • Kriffix

      I must agree with you in that had someone told me about this yesterday I wouldn’t have believed it even for a split second. Even after seing this undeniably Sugimori-artwork something still twings at the back of my head.
      I’m coming to terms with it now, at first I freaked out big time.

  • Mega Pokemon is still not 100% confirmed. We all have to wait till August 12 for GameFreak to release the “Scoop of the Century”. It might even be Mega Pokemon! We currently all don’t know! Yet, Mega Pokemon does seem a bit sketchy, mostly after the Leaker started to deleting his tweets. I’m still 50/50 on Mega Pokemon! Just wait till that date before everyone starts saying it is real or fake. ;D

    • Missingno. Master

      Denial is a river in Egypt. Keep it that way. Serebii says it’s 100% confirmed, so that should be good enough for everyone.

      • Serebii as been wrong sometimes. They said Jynx will be getting a evolution in the early X & Y CoroCoro and it never got one. They have showed fake scans before. :/

        • Nanaki

          If these scans prove to be fake then you can gladly saw my right foot off.
          As for my fear of that actually happening, well, it’s pretty safe to say my left foot won’t be lonely any time soon.

      • belmad

        Omg, Denial, the nile. yeah!

    • Toshiro

      It’s pretty much 100% confirmed. The scans said Mawile will be reclassified as a Steel/Fairy type; and Bulbapedia updated Mawile.

      • Maybe! It really seems believable! Yet, I’m waiting for that star date!

  • Magic0loc0

    I tell you, the Gym Leader has Mega forms, but if she’s type specific, probably Steel types. Guessing her name will be Megan. (get it?)

    • I guess Fighting. Mostly because her gym area looks like a Fighting Ring. She doesn’t say Steel to me!

  • roche206

    The only thing that will hurt me if it fake is the three cute pokemon cant be petted in Pokemon-amie.

    • Why would that happened. Honedge will even be pet-able in Pokemon-Amie; and he’s a sword.

      • Daedardus

        But will Arceus be pet-able?

        • You shall pet it and feel the power. ;D

        • roche206

          Think about gastly your hand would go right through him.

  • briant

    OMG what if just what if they havent shown orroto because gamefreak/nintendo is doing a thing where only the japanese get a certain pokemon and other regions/countries get other pokemon. That way people would trade which other regions/countries.

    • Nanaki

      They more than likely just haven’t announced it yet. Orroto wasn’t exactly given artwork and placed on a magazine in Japan either, it was just confirmed through a trailer.

  • jwla

    Stepping back from the Mega Pokemon (which I AM a fan of), I like the three Kalos Pokemon they’ve shown us.

    Meekuru is perfectly cute, and so is Dedenne. It’s a gerbil-antenna!

    It’s nice to see a new rabbit, too! Wasn’t Horubii one of those names that was tossed around a while back? When everyone was trying to guess what it was?

    • Sable

      Yup. Dedenne was too, but no one had found a good translation for it’s name apparently, so it wasn’t given much focus. Amusingly, Horubii was giving visions of a hornet like a mud dauber. Pretty sure a rather average looking bunny wasn’t high on that list, heh.

    • Yea! Same as Dedenne. They are really awesome!

    • simkenno

      I completely agree 😀 These Pokémon got pushed into the background a bit, but they have a great design, I said in an earlier comment that im guessing Dedenne will end up having an alternate Raichu evolution or be a Mega Raichu evolution. 🙂 I also really love the rabbit 😀

      • Yea! Mega Pokemon took up the spotlight! Dedenne being Electric/Fairy seems interesting. ;D Also, Horubii seems like it will be the rodent of the Generation. Also, everyone knew Gogoat will be getting a Pre-Evolution it was easy to figure out!

        • simkenno

          Haha yeah and Gogoat pre-evo was actually shown in the background in a screenshot before 😉 🙂 Which of the 3 is your favourite ? 😀

    • belmad

      Horubii is digger and I guess it is digging with its ears, they look like hands covered with soil.

      • It will mostly evolve into Normal/Ground!

  • Caitlin

    I’ve a feeling/I hope Bosses ‘Signature pokemon’ is a mega pokemon! 🙂

    • Pandas2NaKed

      Yeah i was just thinking the same thing… I hope this “Change” turns out okay…
      It could make or break the entire game.

    • roche206

      Do you mean the gym leader,team flair boss,or elite4 and chamion. If so in terms of champion it be a pleasant change from a Pseudo-legendary

  • pokemaster

    I hope Dunsparce gets revealed next but I think there will be more mega Pokemon revealed because I remember something saying the professor will give you a Hoenn starters
