Scans from the latest issue of CoroCoro have started to leak, showing "Mega" forms of existing Pokemon as well as a few more brand new creatures.
... I smell bullshit. I don't believe for a second that this is real if I'm honest. "Mega evolution"? What is this, Digimon? I know that I'd get used to the designs and what it, but it doesn't mean that I like them. They look too similar to their previous forms and they've plan and simple f*cked Lucario up...
It's really all going to come down to how they incorporate them into the story. If they bring it up as "oh hey, these existed the entire time but only here" like they did with some of the new evolutions of gen one pokemon the past couple gens, yeah it's bull. However if the story has anything to do with DNA manipulation like rumors and the titles suggest then it could work if it's like an alternate form because of an dna enhancing/ changing item. MewTwo was a clone so he by default cannot evolve or have offspring but it would make sense that he (or someone) found a way to bring out even more power through DNA manipulation making an alternate form or evolution. EDIT: just look at the DNA splicer from Black/White2 which made Kyrum even stronger. We'll have to see how this plays out but I honestly really like these "mega forms" of older Pokemon like the Lucario one.
As odd and unfitting I feel "Mega Evolutions" are in Pokemon, I cant help but want to see MegaForms of Charizard, Blastoise, Venusaur, and Raichu
Actually this is the real deal. You can read about it right here. http://www.serebii.net/inde...
That it is. I'm not sure how I feel about it if I'm honest. If this is simply an I'm battle transformation activated by an item in combination with a move etc. then that wouldn't be too bad and I might actually go with the idea, if these Pokémon were entirely new Pokémon with separate entries in the Pokédex and they kept these lazy names and designs as entirely new Pokémon, I'd throw a f**king Miltank.
@Geckoputt im pretty sure they do not have their own entries in the pokedex. They are in battle transformations the reason i feel comfortable saying that is because blaziken with eviolite would be so hax and i know they know that.
They're CoroCoro magazine scans, of course it's real. I imagine the titles 'Pokémon X and Y' were named as such in reference to the new Mega evolutions after all anyway, refering to the X and Y chromosomes in relation to the DNA splice-enabling mega evolutions.
You seem to have missed my follow-up comment in reply to this. I realise that it was confirmed real. I was initially hesitant to believe due to the mass of fake scans that have been prevalent on the internet in regards to Pokémon X and Y. Whilst it looked like a CoroCoro magazine scan, it could've easily been made by a skilled photoshopper. Either way, I realise it's been confirmed. I also believe that it is the main reason that X and Y was named as such. It's interesting that they were to take this plot path considering this will be the third time they've confronted the idea of DNA splicing after Mew/Mewtwo and Genesect.
These look like shit,they just added a bunch of stripes spikes,hair,and extensions,the mewtwo one is cool because it is simple,but that Lucario one,and even worse the Raichu....
That's an entirely new Pokémon. It's nothing to do with Raichu; I'd imagine it's our Generation VI "cute mouse-like Pokémon" like Pichu, Plusle & Minun, Pachirisu, and Emolga.
OMG I wonder if they get stat changes, because if so they're going to be so overpowered. Blaziken is already uber thanks to Speed Boost, now image it gets more power (they should have did Charizard instead and made it Fire / Dragon making it a UU Reshiram). Lucario is about to be Uber, Absol needs the evo, lord knows Mawile needed it, but if it gets and attack boost with Huge Power it can be broken, Ampharos needed and evo as well. This is interesting. Also we may have our first Dark Gym leader with the skull helmet.
Why are they ruining Pokemon like this, why are they messing with first gen Pokemon. If they want to add a new evolution to Pokemon who haven't got a third form then fair enough but come on "Mega" evolution. As someone has said above, what is this...Digimon. Please don't tell me that orange mouse looking Pokemon is Raichu's next evolution. Pikachu is a cute pokemon, your supposed to make us want to evolve it into something that looks better, it's why many people didn't evolve their Pikachu in their Pokemon game Oh and why is Blazakin one of them, it's a starter Pokemon, you can't mess with starters. Urgh...what have they done
they are not actually evolutions they are closer to form changes, Its not surprising they would choose blaziken they pretty much establish his transition into a Legendary (Uber) from gen 5. and lucario is like somebody important's favorite pokemon since he gets every move he could ever want. And yeah that last one isnt supposed to be raichu just the new "electric cheeks" animal that is standard now.
looks interesting, i hope its incorporated into the story properly, think i might get a 3ds when this comes out
Oh look, people bitching already :U! Just wait till there's more information.
It's kind of funny people complaining about them not doing anything new with pokemon and once they do, everyone throws feces IN OUR DEFENSE THOUGH GAMEFREAK THAT LOOKS LIKE SH*T No really, who thought doing that to blaziken was a good idea?
We want difference to the gameplay or the structure to the story...not changing Pokemon
I think they look pretty cool, as enhancements to final evolutions. It's pretty neat how they're going back to the old generations.
What are your thoughts though guys? Are these actual evolutions (as in Torchic now has a 4th evolutionary stage), or these simply forme changes and/or enhancements to the final stage? Do they have their own slot in the Pokédex as a separate entry? So many questions;... To me, they don't look too much different to their original Pokémon other than a few stripes and minor details here and there, perhaps you can only activate it within battle through the use of an item and a move for example. What do you think?
Form change, I said it above if this was a 4th evolution that would mean Blaziken and Lucario get access to eviolite which would cause some serious damage to the metagame.
I think its pretty cool! Give me a megacharizard that's fire/dragon and I'm happy
THIS is some real next lvl sh*t.
lol they are becoming digimons now, cant wait until they put DNA Digvolution.
New york times : Blaziken evolves, 16 year old drowns in tears of joy
Ampharos power is within his hair. it would be very interesting, if each pokemon got a mega version. I think it would change the meta game a lot, for example, there are two Ampharoses now.
MegaMewtwo and Mega(whoever it is that's to the left of him) are the only ones that look real.
I love Ampharos's epic new hair. Dragon/Electric is somewhat new as well as the only other optioned is banned online.
