    I'm personally torn about these new pokémon. On one hand, they look awesome & I love how some NU pokémon like Ampharos, Mawile, & Absol are getting some much needed love. On the other hand, Lucario & Blaziken are powerful enough already, and this makes the mega evolutions feel like pokémon's "jumping the shark moment." I just hope they have some way to balance the megas by giving some severe disadvantage that separates them from regular pokémon

    Hol up! What if the "Super Training Facility" is where we get the megastones and train our pokes to digivolve them into megas?

    But they're translating the same scans as everyone else. I know they gossip, but ignore that.

    MegaAmpharos is electric/dragon?
    Let the buttrape begin!

    Anyway, something I hope for is that they Anglicize the names and shorten them a little, MegaAmpharos is a mouthful, maybe MegAmpharos or Megcario?

    Woah woah woah! an Electric/Dragon Sheep/llama? What? Ok sure, why not!

    All MegaMEWTWO gets is Insomnia, Unnerve would have been better. Guess it makes it a nice Spore counter though.

    It makes sense that Ampharos is Electric/Dragon since Denryu means "electric dragon" literally

    As mega formes are accessible only during battle, I suppose they are unlocked via holding some kind of item...?
    This may mean that, basically, a Mega forme/evolution has enhanced stats and abilityes, as well as typing, BUT at the disadvantage of the loss of the held item.
    Seems quite legit!

    It's like Eviolite, but ten thousand times cooler. lol

    I'm actually rather disappointed it's activated only in battle. Of course, we still don't know anything about how their stats change, so there's still too much mystery about it to make solid conclusions about them being overpowered.

    I think these mega evolutions are going to be part of Team Flare's master plan, by enhancing already strong pokemon, and weak, to become ever more powerful and be stronger than any pokemon in kalos and by them taking money which we heard was their main goal is really for creating mega evolutions... thoughts?

    I don't know whether I like this or not. Need some more information. My first impression is that it's like bringing out the hidden potential of Pokémon or something.

    I just hope that they're not actually called by their name with the prefix mega infront of it, that's just horrible imo.

    Is it possible to change form freely in battle? (Imagine after watching Pokemon Special Episode: Prelude Mewtwo Awakening)

    To people saying that mega evolutions are a rip-off of Digimon: Keep in mind that the idea of "mega" somethings isn't exactly unique to the digimon universe. There are a lot of occasions where there is another level after the supposed "ultra form" that is only used in rare occasions or in desperate situations. A lot of magical girl animes use this.

    So no, they aren't stealing from digimon. They are making use of an already established trope.
    even if we don't understand each other, that's not a reason to reject each other. There are two sides to any argument. Is there one point of view that has all the answers? Give it some thought.
    ^ This is the reason why I like arguing. If I come off as standoffish or overly angry in an argument, don't worry. I'm probably having the time of my life. Whether I agree with them or not, the pokemon fandom has a lot of different opinions, and I love how nobody is afraid to share them.

    I don't see them getting a new name in game. It's like Aria Meloetta and Pirouette Meloetta. Just Meloetta.

    As someone else said, Type Changes, Stat Changes and Ability Changes with the cost of a Held Item?

    Doesn't seem too bad. That's why Arceus Normal is more dangerous then the others.

    Anywho an Electric/Dragon type... Let's see how long it takes for this thing to get banned.
    Consider it's Smogon I'd give it about a month.

    Actually, these are reminding me of Shadow Pokemon. And if Team Flare are the people behind this, that would be a really interesting part in the story!
    But back to what I was saying, if they are like Shadow Pokemon, they might not listen to a Trainer's Call all the time, or the might have another disadvantage similar to that.

    Also, it just feels like Game Freak will do this for all Pokemon, or at least their final evolution....

    I definitely dig the idea of being battle only, and benefits to stats/abilities/typing with the hindrance of having no beneficial held item other than their required stone thingy. lol
