We have a new type of evolution in the upcoming Pokemon X and Y games. This is an in-battle evolution called “Mega Evolution”. This allows trainers to further evolve their
Digimon um… I mean Pokemon during battle with a special held-item called a Mega Stone.
To kick off the hype of Mega Evolutions, there will be a special Torchic distribution between October 12, 2013, and January 15, 2014. The Torchic will be holding a Mega Stone called Blazikenite that will allow Blaziken to Mega Evolve in battle to Mega Blaziken. Blazikenite is not available through normal gameplay, so this is the only opportunity to download it. The Torchic will be at level 10, and knows the moves Scratch, Growl, Focus Energy and Ember. There doesn’t seem to be anything special about this Torchic other than the Mega Stone. But why specifically Torchic? Why make Blaziken the poster child for Mega Evolutions? Is this a hint that there might be a Generation 3 (Ruby and Sapphire) remake in the near future? Maybe I’m looking too much into it, but this has to mean something.
Other Mega Evolutions officially announced are Mewtwo, Lucario, Absol, Mawile, Ampharos, and Kangaskhan. My personal favorite out of the bunch is Ampharos. It is one of my favorite Pokemon to begin with, and it becomes Electric/Dragon when it mega evolves. Interesting, no? I wonder what other Pokemon will have the opportunity to have Mega Evolutions. So far is seems like only the final evolution stage of Pokemon can Mega Evolve (similar to how only final stage Pokemon can learn Hyper Beam), but there are only a select few Pokemon that have been officially announced. I would love to see every Pokemon have the ability to Mega Evolve, but each Pokemon will need its own Mega Stone. Maybe they will, maybe they won’t. We’ll see what happens as we get nearer to the release date for Pokemon X and Y.
