    I wish that they are quite challenging to get, but that they are NOT event-exclusive. I like the idea of not every Pokemon getting one, but I hope they don't just give them off to the more popular Pokemon and that more unused ones get them, and that this isn't Pokemon X & Y only thing, but we more in perhaps a third game, remakes in later generations.

    For now, I'm hoping for a good list of 30-40.

    Also why did they just not give Absol, Mawile and Lucario regular evolutions? (Why did they even see the need to improve Lucario any further?)
    And why did they not just give Mewtwo, Blaziken and Ampharos regular forms? I guess they will explain their reasoning later on, atleast i hope there is a reasoning for these Megalutions so i will be able to accept them a little better, like how i accepted fairies after it became clear that a new type was needed to balance the type chart

    I mean GF may have just decided to change something because they felt like it, but to me it just feels like they introduced new forms and to add hype, they gave them a new name - Mega evolutions.
    well the new gym leader is an expert on it so i bet she will explain some things

    There's always a possibility that the Megas will work like Arceus and be incapable of having those moves used on them.

    even then, most of them are still pretty formidable even without their Mega forms, at least Blaziken and Mewtwo

    That;s probably what there gonna do....it's not like every route you walk in is gonna have a Blazenkinite.

    The "pharos" in Ampharos is the name of two Roman lighthouses. Since Ampharos is used as the light of a lighthouse in Johto...

    Perhaps a "mega" weather status will activate the megavolutions like field cards in Yugioh.

    I'm sure someone has mentioned this already, but the PokéBeach rumor said that Mewtwo would have two new forms. What if the other one is MegaMewtwo and the other actually just MegaMew?

    Just imagine how depressing it'll be to finally get your Mega Stone in game, after all the quests you had to go through to get it, only to have a pokemon take it from you and give you a lame Oran berry on your first battle with it
    Currently not playing any Pokemon Games, you can check my Backloggery for games that I AM playing, if you're interested:



    If I'm playing a Pokemon game, I'll have my signature display the game I'm playing, current team, and badge number.

    Haha, that would be something. I don't think I've ever been in that situation before. I think with Knock Off I have.

    If people can't see a digimon connection then either A. they never were that into digimon to see the obvious connections, or B. choose to ignore them for the sake of seeming "enlightened". Do I think Nintendo sat around a table and said how can we copy digimon? no I do not. I do however think that sometimes ideas overlap and fans of one series can just see it better. Barring the word "mega" from the equation, Digimon has been using items to have mons evolve past their "final" state for years , and when the battle is over they revert to a previous form. Did game freak copy this from digimon? doubtful but who knows maybe they were inspired. Hell I wouldnt be surprised if when they were sitting around the concept coffee table someone there was a huge DBZ fan when they suggested mewtwo's mega.

    On a different note, Ampharos is a puzzle to me. As fans of the series it really should not surprise anyone that its turning electric dragon, in fact im more shocked with all the type adjusting because of fairy they didnt just tack dragon on ampy anyways even without the mega form. But what bothers me is its actual form. I swear I have seen it years ago. The same with Absols mega. I know a few people have joked that these megas look like cheap deviantart fan art but in the case of those two I honestly feel like maybe they are. I like the designs I just swear I could have seen them years ago and would be really shocked if nintendo stole someone elses idea lol

    MegaArceus? Yep that's scary. But I like the idea that they are based off of Norse mythology (my favorite myths). However since Kalos is the Greek word for beauty, I wonder if some of the other Mega evolutions will be based on Greek mythology?

    I'm glad to see that the evolutions are temporary. I was a little worried about having Pokemon with 4 stages, particularly a starter such as Blaziken. Although I wish Mawile and Sableye would've gotten true evolutions, this is still nice.

    And I can definitely see a lot of Mega-haters using a Trick/Switcheroo/Knock Off/Thief to spite the Mega-users.

    I agree 100%. I'm actually interested in seeing a MegaSableye. To add on to your posts, I also want to see ALL the starters get a Mega Evolution. It wouldn't seem fair if only Blaziken got one. And besides if there are any additional requirements to receiving these Mega forms (such as high friendship) then your starter would be a good candidate to first try out this new mechanic because they've been there the longest.

    I'm assuming the stone is activated at the start of the battle, and the Pokemon retains its form until it has fainted. So I don't think we can knock off the item.

    I hope so, as long as there is some sort of reasoning for them and they are different to regular forms in some significant way, i will be able to accept them.

    Right now however, it just seems like they are just regular forms and GF are just trying to build hype. (As negative as that statement sounds, i genuinely want myself to be wrong about that)

    I also should have known not to put to much faith in the "scoop of the century" statement. Sooo many people were saying not to believe the hyperbole of Corocoro, but i just couldn't help but get carried away that this month Corocoro will have massive news...

    I honestly think one of the reasons the MegaEvos exist is because Game Freak wants to use alternate designs for the Pokemon, but said designs are too similar to the ones they already have to warrant an actual evo (Klink/Diglett/Magnemite families aside).

    I mean, look at MegaLucario. Just a basic modification. Same with MegaAmpharos. The only ones that look radically different are Mewtwo's, Absol's, and Blaziken's.

    So main page is saying that mega forms do get stat changes. I am terrified. Lucario gets increased attack, and adaptability?! Absol gets increased attack and speed? I mean absol could use the speed, but it's base attack was already 130. Both of those pokes alone already have strong priority T.T

    I totally forgot about that until you brought it up. You may be right about that.

    You do realize that use of an item to enter a temporary super stage has existed long before digimon..e.g the star in SMB1.

    The extent of the stat changes isn't know yet. Maybe only one stat gets boosted while the others stay the same or its a redistribution of the stat.
