Mega Evolution

A powerful new mechanic has been revealed for Pokémon X & Y: Mega Evolution! Mega Evolution is a form of evolution that several Pokémon are able to undergo through a special evolution method involving objects called Mega Stones, which transforms them into their "Mega" form. The player also needs to wear the Mega Ring, obtainable in some point in the game, to allow Mega Evolution to occur.


Mega Stones vary based on the Pokémon species, with the Blazikenite being used to Mega Evolve Blaziken into Mega Blaziken and the Lucarionite Mega Evolving Lucario into Mega Lucario. These held items induce a temporary evolution that lasts for the duration of the battle, increasing the Pokémon's stats, granting a different ability, and even potentially changing the Pokémon's type. Whether the Mega Stone is consumed after its use in the battle is presently unknown.

The Shalour City Gym Leader, Korrina, may hold the key to Mega Evolution, and the Tower of Mastery within Shalour City is said to have a connection to Mega Evolution.

    Did anyone notice that I_Like_Milk's picture has been mega ampharos before mega evolution came out. We could've just looked at his picture.

  • #78 XerneasLover

    No, I_Like_Milk also likes changing his/her picture. I think he/she has had this picture since the Mega Pokémon have been revealed. 

  • #80 DoubleKFire

    Sorry, I didn't know your gender, hahaha. A couple of my favourite Pokémon are actually very cute, too: Lillipup, Mew, Spheal, Eevee, you name it... XD

    Besides, even if you were gay (I'm not saying you are, because I don't know you personally, of course), there would be absolutely nothing wrong with that. ;)

    I mean, so what if you find Pokémon like Ampharos and Mega Ampharos cute (because they are cute, let's face it)? So do I... :P

    You see? These are people I like to see. XerneasLover: you and I_Like_Milk are just some examples of the people I like to see, whether I know them or not. Thank you. This made my day. I like it when 2 complete strangers are nice to eachother. :D

    Thanks! Well, what's the need of being rude to people at all? I'm gay myself and I have been through some occasional bullying, too, although not all was because of my gender preferences.

    Besides, I'm only rude to people I dislike and those are persons I actually know (*cough* my neighbours *cough*).

    And to stay on-topic: I_Like_Milk changed his avatar to Mega Ampharos after the new mega evolutions have been revealed. Maybe that's just because he likes that cute little Ampharos, I don't know. Can't blame him, it's one of my favourite Pokémon, too... I'm curious about how all these new evolutions will turn out in battles. Maybe they'll be a huge letdown, but somehow I doubt that, hahaha. :)

    I know right? Mareep might look harmless and cute but that furball can pack quite a punch in battle! All cute pokemon look harmless but they can demolish anything!
