How to mega evolve a pokémon in pokémon x and y

There aren’t that many Mega Evolutions in Pokémon X and Y, but there are probably more than you think, making it even more difficult to catch ’em all.

In order for a Pokémon to undergo a Mega Evolution, it needs to be holding a Mega Stone appropriate to its type, and the trainer needs to be wearing the Mega Ring. If both conditions are met and the Pokémon is able to mega evolve, then you can select the option from within a battle to trigger the Mega Evolution.

Only one Pokémon can mega evolve during a battle, but that isn’t too bad of a limit considering the game’s random encounters run rampant, and triggering a Link Battle is easy enough. Each available Mega Evolution is listed below along with its corresponding Mega Stone location.

How to mega evolve a pokémon in pokémon x and y

So, while Pokémon X and Y technically has every single Pokémon since the series inception, it only has a handful of Mega Evolutions. However, since the mechanic has now been introduced, it’s safe to assume subsequent installments in the franchise will build upon the new evolution mechanic. It would probably be best to evolve ’em all this time around, so you can fill out your Pokédex now and not have to worry about it in later installments.

Mega Evolutions

A brand new feature of the Pokйmon X & Y games are Mega Evolutions. These are special features of Pokйmon, different to evolutions and forms, that have your Pokйmon Mega Evolve in battle into these appearances. Their abilities, stats and sometimes even types are different. To get a Pokйmon to Mega Evolve, they need to be holding a special Mega Stone item unique to their species, as well as receiving the Mega Ring and the Key Stone. To get your Pokйmon to Mega Evolve, you can select a button when picking the move and then select a move. The Pokйmon will both evolve and attack in that turn. You may only have one Mega Evolution in a battle.

Multiple mega-evolutions per battle?

Accepted Answer

Well, I just found out the answer to my question, but I’ll leave it here in case anyone else has the same question in the future.

The answer is no, you cannot mega-evolve more than one Pokemon per battle, even if your currently mega-evolved Pokemon faints.

Game Trivia

Pokemon X and Y’s naming could be influenced by a number of factors. The most likely explanation is that the names are derived from the variables of the 3D Cartesian graphing system, which uses the points (x,y,z) to determine length, width, and depth of a 3D object. This ties into the fact that it is on the 3DS, which has 3D graphics and made Pokemon capable of using truly 3D graphics for the first time. Additionally, the legendary Pokemon Xerneas, Yveltal, and Zygrade had their names derived from this logic: look at the first letter of their names. This has led many to speculate about the possibility of a Pokemon Z expansion or sequel to Pokemon X/Y.

A Mega Moment is a special research quest released as part of Pokémon Go’s Mega Evolution rework in April 2022.

To access this quest, you need to be Trainer Level 5 or above. It’s also a branching quest, which means it will play out slightly differently depending on a certain choice you make.

‘A Mega Moment’ quest steps in Pokémon Go

To unlock A Mega Moment in Pokémon Go you need to be Trainer Level 5 or above, but, once it’s unlocked, you can complete this quest at your own pace.

A Mega Moment is also a branching quest, which means, at a specific point, you’ll be asked to pick between three different options. Which option you pick will change one of the challenges and a number of the rewards.

Below you’ll find every A Mega Moment quest step and reward in Pokémon Go – just be wary of spoilers!

Thank you to Amiibofan101 for the help with this information!

‘A Mega Moment’ Step 1 of 4

  • Catch 3 Pokémon – Bulbasaur encounter
  • Catch 3 Pokémon – Charmander encounter
  • Catch 3 Pokémon – Squirtle encounter

Rewards: 500 XP, 200 Stardust and 10 Poké Balls

At this point, you’ll be asked to choose between Venusaur, Charizard and Blastoise. This choice only affects some of the rewards you’ll receive and one challenge in Step 3.

‘A Mega Moment’ Step 2 of 4

  • Catch 5 Pokémon – 10 Poké Balls
  • Use 5 Berries to help catch Pokémon – 10 Great Balls
  • Power up Pokémon 5 times – 10 Razz Berries

Depending on which Pokémon you choose, you’ll earn an encounter with either Venusaur, Charizard or Blastoise and 200 Mega Energy for that Pokémon after completing the above challenges. No matter your decision, however, you’ll also receive one Premium Raid Pass.

‘A Mega Moment’ Step 3 of 4

  • Earn 5 hearts with your buddy – 50 Venusaur, Charizard or Blastoise Mega Energy
  • Power up Pokémon 10 times – 50 Venusaur, Charizard or Blastoise Mega Energy

Rewards: 2000 XP, 1500 Stardust and 100 Mega Energy for either Venusaur, Charizard or Blastoise

New to the game is a long overdue Mega Evolution update, which has arrived alongside the A Mega Moment research. May 2022 in Pokémon Go started with the Air Adventures event and the release of Mega Latias and Mega Latios. Currently both the Great League and Flying Cup are running in the Go Battle League. Elsewhere, we’ve recently seen the release of more Gen 7 Pokémon as part of the Season of Alola. The first details surrounding Go Fest 2022 have also been announced, including the event date.

A Mega Moment best Choose Path choice in Pokémon Go explained

After completing Step 1 for A Mega Moment in Pokémon Go, you’ll be asked to pick between the final evolutions for the Gen 1 starter Pokémon – Venusaur, Charizard and Blastoise. Your choice determines which one you’ll earn from completing Step 2 and the Mega Energy you receive throughout the questline.

Mega Charizard Y.

The question is, however, which Mega Evolution is best – Mega Venusaur, Mega Charizard X, Mega Charizard Y or Mega Blastoise?

When looking at the max CP level each Mega Evolution can reach, it’s clear that Mega Charizard Y is the most powerful. If you have a Charizard with 100% perfect IV stats, then, at Level 30, it can reach 3,819 CP and this number rises to 4,445 CP at Level 40.

This number is significantly higher than the other Mega Evolutions, who have the following CP levels at 100% perfect IV stats:

Mega Venusaur

  • Level 30 – 3,170 CP
  • Level 40 – 3,698 CP

Mega Charizard X

  • Level 30 – 3,300 CP
  • Level 40 – 3,850 CP

Mega Blastoise

  • Level 30 – 3,378 CP
  • Level 40 – 3,941 CP

If you decide to go with Charizard Y, then the best moveset for this Pokémon is Fire Spin (Fast) and Blast Burn (Charged).

The choice, however, is completely up to you and you can always use this research quest to fill in a missing entry in your Mega Pokédex.

How A Mega Moment works in Pokémon Go

A Mega Moment was released as part of April 2022’s rework to Mega Evolution in Pokémon Go and requires players to be Trainer Level 5 or above to unlock.

Since it’s a special research quest and has no deadline, you can complete A Mega Moment whenever you like after unlocking it.

A Mega Moment contains four quest quests and, like most Pokémon Go quests, you need to complete three challenges for every step, collecting the rewards as you progress. A number of the rewards and one of the challenges, however, depend on which final evolution for the Gen 1 starter Pokémon you select after completing Step 1.

Good luck completing A Mega Moment!

Lottie Lynn is Eurogamer’s Senior Guides Writer. She likes exploring new games and still has nightmares about the moon from Majora’s Mask.

Yesterday we caught wind of a new type of evolution coming in Pokemon X and Y. Today we learn how Mega Evolution works, where to learn the technique, and which Mega Pokemon will only be available through a special launch day distribution event. Oh, and there are three new Pokemon at the bottom, so if you’re saving yourself for October 12, don’t look.

First off, don’t expect to be walking around the Kalos region with Mega Mewtwo stuffed inside a pokeball — these Mega Evolutions only occur in battle, when a Mega-capable Pokemon is holding a very specific Mega Stone. For instance, in order to evolve Lucario into Mega Lucario, he’ll have to be holding a chunk of Lucarionite.

Once Mega Lucario is done kicking ass, he’ll revert back to his normal form and stuff himself back inside his pokeball.

This Xbox controller from Razer is inspired by our favorite Mandalorian—Boba Fett. It comes with a charming stand also decked out in the character’s colors.

One of the Megas, Mega Blaziken, will only be available during a special, incredibly short distribution event held during the launch of the games on October 12. Players will be able to grab a special Torchic holding a Blazikenite Mega Stone, which they’ll have to evolve to Blaziken before going all super saiyan with him.

Want to see them in action?

Players will most likely learn about these Mega Evolutions in the seaside town of Shalour City, home of the Tower of Mastery and the spirited gym leader Korrina, who seeks to unlock the hidden potential of her Pokemon.

Also announced today were two new types of Pokemon training, injecting a little Monster Rancher style into the franchise. Here’s the details:

Super Training or S.T. is being introduced in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, allowing players to help their Pokémon grow stronger when they’re not in battle. On the Touch Screen of the Nintendo 3DS system, players can have their Pokémon participate in Super Training, activities that will increase a Pokémon’s base stats, the underlying values that define its HP, Attack, Defense, Sp. Atk, Sp. Def, and Speed stats.

One Super Training activity involves having Pokémon train by facing huge Pokémon-shaped Balloon Bots in a virtual space, with both sides trying to shoot balls into the opponent’s goal. Using the Circle Pad and Touch Screen to avoid shots from the Balloon Bots while landing their own in the goal, players will enjoy this action-packed feature while increasing their Pokémon’s base stats to help them become stronger for battle.

For a more casual way to help Pokémon strengthen their base stats, Core Training lets players set up training bags, earned by completing Super-Training Regimens, for Pokémon in their party to use. Pokémon will work on Core Training by themselves, raising their stats on their own. By tapping on the Touch Screen during a Core Training session, players can help their Pokémon increase their base stats, too. Players will be able to see how their Pokémon are doing at their Core Training at any time from the main Super Training screen.

And finally, it wouldn’t be a big Pokemon announcement without some new critters.

What is the best mega evolution pokemon?

Top Voted Answer

There is no “best” Mega evolution, just like there is no “best” pokemon in general. The one’s that are looking particularly viable right now are Alakazam, Gengar, Tyranitaur, Heracross, Aggron, and Mawhile. Though all of them are good, and a lot of Mega Evolutions are arguably more competitively viable with other items instead of mega stones.

Also, don’t feel too bad about having Y. Your Mega Mewtwo is going to be much better than the Mega Mewtwo X. By a lot. In that it has more Special attack than Deoxys Attack. And way better defenses to boot.

Answers

Mega Kangaskhan is my favorite. That thing is terrifying. Is it the best? They’re all pretty good honestly. For me, it may very well be the best, especially since normal kangaskhan can have the Scrappy ability.

But ive got my head handed to me quite a few times against Mega Mawile.

In my opinion, here are the mega evolution pokemon in tiers.

OP Tier
Medicham
You all may think that this Pokemon is in the UU tier, since you almost never see it, but its ability, Pure Power, makes its base attack stat to 200. Also giving is a speed boost to 100, and access to all three elemental punches, this Pokemon is one of the biggest threats of all.

Gengar
La la la. I am a ghost and poison force of destruction. AND I CAN LEARN DAZZLING GLEAM!! This Pokemon has an amazing movepool, and has also 175 Base Sp.atk and 130 Speed.

Mewtwo X and Y

With the first weekend of the Pokemon Winter Regional Championships behind us, Shacknews is taking a fresh look at some of Pokemon’s best Mega Evolutions. Here are four fearsome Mega Evolved Pokemon from Pokemon X & Y.

How to mega evolve a pokémon in pokémon x and y

The first weekend of the Pokemon Winter Regional Championships is officially in the books. The first batch of Winter Regional matches were held this past weekend in Virginia, Southern California, Oregon, and Missouri with thousands of competitors vying for an invitation to the 2015 World Championships. The second weekend will be held in Kissimmee, Florida on February 28.

Players will compete in Single, Triple, Rotation, Multi, and GS Cup battles, with over 700 Pokemon at their disposal. Mega Evolutions, the major addition to Pokemon X & Y, will indeed be allowed and could very well turn more than one of these matches on their head. In observance of the Pokemon Winter Regionals, Shacknews is taking a couple of days to examine some of the more powerful Mega Evolutions to hit the Pokemon series thus far. Today, we check out the best Megas to come out of the aforementioned Pokemon X & Y.

Those that are assembling their Pokemon rosters may want to consider adding the following:

How to mega evolve a pokémon in pokémon x and y

Mega Charizard X

Ability: Tough Claws

The Mega Evolution that donned the cover of Pokemon X did so for a good reason. This version of Charizard’s Mega Evolution is undoubtedly the superior one for a couple of reasons. Mega Charizard X gets a sharp jump in its Attack stats, as well as a modest boost in Defense and Special Attack. Its bolstered stats make its Fire-type attacks a greater force to be reckoned with.

On top of that, Mega Charizard X is one of the few Megas (and the only Charizard Mega) that actually changes the Pokemon’s type. Charizard will morph from Fire/Flying to a Fire/Dragon type. That makes the decision to go Mega as much a strategic choice as anything else. The switch will remove Charizard’s weakness to Electricity and its new dual-type will negate the weakness to Ice that so many Dragon types are vulnerable to.

Physical attacks like Dragon Claw and Flare Blitz, with Aerial Ace backing them up, make Mega Charizard X one of the stronger Mega choices to come out of Pokemon X & Y. Remember, Charizard is popular for a reason and this particular Mega Evolution was such a hit that it emerged again as Charizard’s Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U.

How to mega evolve a pokémon in pokémon x and y

Mega Venusaur

Ability: Thick Fat

Of course, if Charizard isn’t your favorite starter, there worse ways to go than with the Bulbasaur family. Venusaur’s Mega Evolution takes the Grass/Poison-type’s relatively mundane abilities and transforms it into the far-more useful Thick Fat. Thick Fat reduces the heavy damage done by Venusaur’s two weaknesses by halving the damage from Ice and Fire-type moves. This ensures that Venusaur can withstand most punishment and, barring a Psychic barrage, will stay on the field long enough to get a few attacks in.

Mega Venusaur gets a modest stat boost across the board, with its Defense getting the biggest upgrade. Petal Dance/Solar Beam and Sludge Bomb will take the best advantage of its dual Grass/Poison-types, while other defensive-minded moves like Reflect or Light Screen can help keep teams standing. Mega Venusaur won’t win style points, but it’s a solid choice for a go-to Mega.

How to mega evolve a pokémon in pokémon x and y

Mega Kangaskhan

Ability: Parental Bond

One of the more unsung Mega Evolutions among casual Pokemon players, Mega Kangaskhan has actually been embraced quite heavily in the competitive world. A big part of that is because of its ability that is literally unlike any other in the game. Parental Bond was crafted solely for Kangaskhan, the lone Pokemon that goes into battle with its young.

Parental Bond allows Kangaskhan to use its child in battle. Any offensive strikes will hit twice, once at its normal rate of damage from the adult and once at a slightly lesser damage rate from the child. With increased stat boosts all around, particularly in Attack, Mega Kangaskhan is a versatile force. Giga Impact will devastate foes and can be used as a potential finishing move, but Mega Kangaskhan can also be adept with other types of moves. Rock Slide, Brick Break, Crunch, or Shadow Claw are all solid choices for its arsenal, but be sure to take full advantage of that Parental Bond ability. It will not work with moves that already strike multiple times, so keep that in mind when setting this offensive juggernaut’s arsenal.

How to mega evolve a pokémon in pokémon x and y

Mega Absol

Ability: Magic Bounce

Normally, the go-to for pure Dark-types is Umbreon, who capably fills any ‘tank’ role just dandy. Absol, however, would like to fill a different kind of role, as a striker that attacks fast and hard. Mega Absol sees an ample jump in its Special Attack and Speed stats, the latter of which can go all the way from 75 to 115.

On top of being a faster choice than the standard Absol, Mega Absol also gets the Magic Bounce ability, which essentially means the Magic Coat move effect is always active. This means there’s good reason for Mega Absol to always warm up with either Swords Dance or Calm Mind before going with a full-on blitz. Mega Absol’s Dark-based attacks are perfectly viable and as long as it can withstand the opponent’s opening salvo, its increased stats should carry it through most fights.

Those are just some of the Mega Evolution options to go to war with when constructing your Pokemon roster. Of course, many more Megas were introduced during November Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Come back tomorrow to see which of the newer Mega Evolutions are worth taking onto the battlefield.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can’t enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

Nintendo recently showed off the evolved forms of Pokemon X and Y‘s three starter creatures, Froakie, Chespin and Fennekin. The latest screens and trailer also showcase Pokemon that are evolved from fossils, as well as male and female-specific forms for Pokemon.

One of the Pokemon with varying forms is Mewtwo, whose previously announced Mega-evolved form is actually called Mega Mewtwo Y, accessible through the Mega Mewtwonite Y item found in Pokemon Y version. This new Pokemon X and Y trailer shows the other form, Mega Mewtwo X, a fighting/psychic type that is, you guessed it, obtained through the same means in Pokemon X.

The games will launch on October 12 for 3DS.

Evolved Forms of Chespin, Fennekin, and Froakie
and More Mega-Evolved Pokémon Revealed

Details Disclosed on How Mewtwo Mega Evolves into Mega Mewtwo X and Mega Mewtwo Y!

BELLEVUE, WA-September 13, 2013-It was recently announced that Mewtwo can achieve Mega Evolution, an extremely powerful form that only certain Pokémon can access during battles in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. It is now known that Mewtwo can Mega Evolve into either Mega Mewtwo X or Mega Mewtwo Y, depending on which Mega Stone Mewtwo holds-Mewtwonite X or Mewtwonite Y. The previously announced Mega Mewtwo is in fact Mega Mewtwo Y; Mega Mewtwo X is being introduced for the first time today. Players can obtain Mewtwonite X in Pokémon X and Mega Evolve Mewtwo into Mega Mewtwo X, which gains the Fighting type to go along with its Psychic type. Players can Mega Evolve Mewtwo into Mega Mewtwo Y, whose Special Attack is greatly boosted, by obtaining Mewtwonite Y in Pokémon Y. Both titles launch worldwide on October 12, 2013, for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.

An already powerful Dragon- and Ground-type Pokémon, Garchomp, can Mega Evolve into Mega Garchomp in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. The increased energy released by its Mega Evolution turns Mega Garchomp’s arms into huge blades that send out a furious attack. Mega Garchomp’s Attack and Special Attack are greatly increased after it Mega Evolves, so its Dragon-type move Dragon Claw becomes extra ferocious.

Evolved Forms of Chespin, Fennekin, and Froakie Are Revealed!

Since the reveal earlier this year, Pokémon fans have debated which first partner Pokémon-Chespin, Fennekin, or Froakie-they are going to choose in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. Players are now getting a first look at their evolved forms, featured in a new gameplay trailer released today on Pokemon.com/XY.

· When Chespin evolves into Quilladin, the hard spikes on its body grow even sturdier, and it’s able to withstand the impact of even something the size of a tractor-trailer truck without flinching. Its solid shell repels attacks while it strikes back with its pointed spines. The gentle Spiny Armor Pokémon never seeks out battles on its own, but when an opposing Pokémon strikes, it fights back! It can learn the Ground-type move Mud Shot, which does damage to opponents and lowers their Speed. This move is super effective against Fire-type Pokémon, which are usually tough opponents for Grass types like Quilladin.

· Braixen is the evolved form of the Fire-type Fox Pokémon Fennekin. Players will notice that Braixen keeps a small twig tucked into its tail. Fennekin often snacks on a twig, but Braixen uses it in another way-the twig calms its mind and is also sometimes used in battle after being set aflame with a little friction. Braixen can learn the Psychic-type move Psyshock, a special move that deals damage based on the opponent’s Defense, as if it were a physical move. Players will want to use Psyshock on opponents that have high Special Defense.

· Froakie has awesome jumping skills that are greatly improved when it evolves into Frogadier. This Bubble Frog Pokémon can reach to the top of a 2,000-foot tower with ease and eludes its opponents by leaping around ceilings or into trees. Frogadier can learn the Flying-type move Bounce, which sends the user into the air on its first turn so it can attack on the second. Bounce is super effective against Grass-type Pokémon, which often pose a challenge for Water types like Frogadier.

Trainers Can Show Their Style!

In Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, players can visit boutiques and a salon to change their Trainers’ outfits and hairstyles. You can change your clothes, hat, shoes, and accessories to show off your individual style and put together different looks. There are boutiques in many of the cities throughout the Kalos region, each with its own unique style. Adding to this customized feature, when players change their outfits and hairstyles, their icons on the Player Search System (PSS) update too!

Never-Before-Seen Pokémon That Possess Different Forms!

Some Pokémon in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y possess a number of different forms, some of which are being revealed for the very first time today.

· The stylish Poodle Pokémon, Furfrou, can be groomed into a number of different appearances. The more it is groomed, the more styles may become available, some of which are being shown for the first time today. Players will be alerted to Furfrou’s grooming schedule, and if it’s left untended, its fur will grow long and shaggy, returning to Furfrou’s original look. This Pokémon is very intelligent and loyal to its Trainer, and it’s said that in ancient times Furfrou guarded the king of the Kalos region. Furfrou can learn Baby-Doll Eyes, a new Fairy-type move debuting in Pokémon X andPokémon Y that allows its user to go first regardless of Speed and can lower the opponent’s Attack stat.

· Meowstic is a never-before-seen Psychic-type Pokémon that has different forms depending on its gender. This expressionless Constraint Pokémon does not show emotion to others, but it seems that some Trainers love the unsociable front it puts on. Unlike other Pokémon that have different forms based on gender, the moves Meowstic can learn will differ based on whether it’s male or female. Male Meowstic can learn the Psychic-type move Miracle Eye, a move that allows future moves to hit regardless of the opponent’s evasion, making it a powerful support in battle. Female Meowstic are better at outright attacks and can learn the Psychic-type move Extrasensory, which not only does damage but can also cause the target to flinch so it can’t use moves on that turn.

Introducing More People You’ll Meet!

More is known about Team Flare. Five Scientists are believed to be the driving force behind this mysterious group, each one identified by a different hairstyle and unique outfit. The purple-haired woman is Celosia, the orange-haired woman is Aliana, the green-haired woman is Bryony, and the blue-haired woman is Mable. There is one man among the Scientists, Xerosic, who is easily identifiable by his red goggles and fire-red hair. Their focus is world-changing, and they have a clear goal in mind, but what is it?

Everyone in the Kalos region loves Diantha, a famous movie star Trainers will meet during their journey. In addition to her acting career, Diantha is a Pokémon Trainer, though she seems to show more interest in other Trainers who have real potential.

Nintendo has released a new Pokemon X and Y trailer, confirming the information posted yesterday regarding Mega forms of the battling critters.

Three new Pokemon were also revealed: Dedenne, Horubii, and Meekuru, and while you watch the trailer, were uploading new shots for the game. So check back in a bit for those.

Mega Evolution is a new transformation certain Pokemon can undergo during battle by allowing them to “tap into hidden reserves of strength and power” unrealized in their regular Evolutions.

Pokemon like Mega Mewtwo and Mega Lucario can use the Mega Evolution power in battle and will see their looks change and stats increase, giving Trainers a great advantage against their opponents.

Some who use this system may even change their Ability or type while in battle – but only certain Pokemon, under certain conditions, can Mega Evolve, Unlike regular Evolution, Mega Evolution only occurs during battle—once the battle ends, the Mega-Evolved Poke will return to its usual state.

IN order to pull off a Mega Evolution, trainers will need an item called a Mega Stone which exist for all Pokemon that can Mega Evolve. Each is also named after the Pokemon to which it grants power.

For instance, the “Lucarionite Mega Stone” will help Lucario Mega Evolve.

Mega Stones are hidden throughout the Kalos region, and players must find them to be able to unlock the powerful Evolution.

Pokemon X and Pokemon Y are out worldwide October 12 on 3DS.

How to mega evolve a pokémon in pokémon x and y

Mega Evolutions

Nintendo’s latest press release announced Mega Evolutions which it classily describes as an evolution beyond all evolutions. So, what really are mega evolutions?

To start with, not all Pokémon are capable of mega evolution and even those Pokémon that are capable can mega evolve only under special circumstances. Mega evolution can only be used during a battle and the Pokémon will return to its regular form once the battle ends. Mega evolution may cause a change in the Pokémon’s ability or type and will always cause an increase in the Pokémon’s stats and change its appearance.

Mega evolutions are triggered by special items called Mega Stones. There exists a Mega Stone for every Pokémon that is capable of mega evolution and the stone is named after the Pokémon that can use it. These Mega stones are hidden throughout the Kalos region and acquiring them is necessary to unlock your Pokémon’s mega evolution.

In typical Pokémon fashion a Wi-Fi event is the only way to acquire Blaziken’s Mega Stone which will be held by a Torchic with the hidden ability Speed Boost which will show its true potential once you evolve your Torchic into Blaziken and then into Mega Blaziken. The Wi-Fi distribution will begin on October 12, 2013 and will last for a short period of time only.

The following Pokémon are definitely capable of mega evolution: Blaziken, Lucario and Mewtwo.

Super Training

Super training will allow the player to increase the Pokémon’s base stats that define its HP, Attack, Defense, Sp. Atk, Sp. Def, and Speed. Super training will work in the form of mini games that can be played using the touch screen and the circle pad. Completing super training regimens will get the player access to training bags. Theses training bags will be used for Core Training by the party Pokémon by themselves as they raise their stats. Players will be able to see how their Pokémon are doing at their Core Training at any time from the main Super Training screen.

New Pokémon

Also revealed were two new Pokémon: Bunnelby and Skiddo. Official descriptions follow-

Bunnelby is a new Normal-type Pokémon that creates its den by digging in the ground with its large, shovel-shaped ears. These powerful ears are strong enough to chop right through thick tree roots, making them a force to be reckoned with in battle. Bunnelby can learn the Ground-type move Dig. On the first turn, the user burrows underground, and on the second turn, it attacks! In Double Battles, a Pokémon can use Dig to avoid its ally’s attack and then dish out damage on the next turn.

It is now known that Skiddo evolves into the already announced Gogoat. A Grass-type Pokémon, Skiddo has a gentle nature and is said to be the first Pokémon to live alongside humans. Because of this relationship, Skiddo doesn’t mind carrying people or supplies on its back, and it has become able to read the feelings of its riders through their grip on its horns. Skiddo can learn the Grass-type move Leaf Blade, where the user wields a sharp leaf to slice like a sword.

Gym Leader Korrina

Korrina was revealed as a new gym leader whose gym is in Shalour City, a seaside town. The city is where the Tower Of Mastery exists which has a link to Mega Evolutions. Korrina apparently holds the key to mega evolutions suggesting that it will be necessary to earn her gym badge to unlock mega evolutions. Korrina will hence be one of the earlier gym leaders as these new features will not be held off from the players for too long.

Pokémon X and Y: Mega Evolution

5. Gengar

Gengar , the final evolution of the original Ghost Pokémon, Ghastly . Gengar was already a threat and the mega evolution makes it unbelievably powerful. Before mega evolution, its Special Attack is 130 and Speed is 110, already pretty high. After mega evolution, its Special Attack goes up to 170 and Speed goes up to 130. This makes it a very good special sweeper.

Mega Gengar also gets the Shadow Tag ability. This traps the opponent so that they cannot switch to another Pokémon. The move, Baton Pass, will still allow the opponent to switch though.

It is a Ghost/Poison type, so it gets stab from some strong moves, such as Shadow Ball and Sludge Bomb. Mix that with immunities to Normal and Fighting type attacks, and he gets a well deserved spot in the top 5.

4. Kangaskhan

Another classic Pokémon with a much deserved mega evolution. Anyone who plays online has run into Mega Kangaskhan on more than one occasion. Kangaskhan’s mega evolution is unique because it allows it to get an extra hit with every move, thanks to the Parental Bond ability. The child does the second hit at half damage. It also has a chance to cause any secondary effect the move has, as well as land a critical hit.

The real threat of this mega evolution comes from Kangaskhan’s movepool . It can learn Fake Out and Sucker Punch, two priority moves. Power-up Punch is also amazing because you will get twice the Attack increase.

Choosing the right moves can make Mega Kangaskhan one of the best physical sweepers in the game.

3. Mawile

With a high Attack and even higher Defense, Mega Mawile is already looking good. The mega evolution’s ability really makes it shine. Huge Power doubles the damage of all attacks, so you can imagine how hard it can hit. It is also a Steel/Fairy type so it has a lot of resistances. Dragon and Poison type attacks can’t touch Mawile . Considering Fairy type Pokémon are weak to Steel and Poison attacks, that takes away two weaknesses right there.

Mawile can learn the dreaded Sucker Punch as well, but it’s power is stronger than almost every other Pokémon. It is a Physical attacker and gets STAB from Iron Head. It also gets that boost from the only physical Fairy attack in the game, Play Rough.

2. Charizard (X)

Normally, Charizard is my favorite Pokémon and the mega evolution for Pokémon X is one of the coolest. What makes Mega Charizard X so unique is the change from Special Attack to Attack . After mega evolving, Charizard’s attack goes from 84 to 130. It also gains the ability, Tough Claws, which increases the power of all moves that make physical contact by 30%.

Mega Charizard X also gets the secondary type of Dragon. This allows it to hit very hard with not only Flare Blitz, but Dragon Claw as well. Give this Pokémon Dragon Dance and after a couple turns it will be nearly unstoppable.

How to mega evolve a pokémon in pokémon x and y

1. Pinsir

The Terror of the Skies. The thing nightmares are made of . All of these accurately describe Mega Pinsir . Its Attack is a whopping 155 after mega evolving. It also has a high Defense and Speed. The ability though, this is what makes him King Pinsir . Aerilate increases the power of Normal type moves by 30% and turns them into the Flying type.

Since Pinsir changes to Bug/Flying when it mega evolves, it gets STAB from Normal attacks. Why is this good? Two reasons: Return and Quick Attack. Return has a base power of 102 and after the boosts it is 198.9. This move will one-hit KO pretty much any Pokémon that doesn’t have high defense or resistance to Flying type attacks.

Quick Attack is a priority attack and gets a nice boost due to its ability. This is very useful in situations that Pinsir is not faster than the opponent.

The pure power of Mega Pinsir , when using the right moves, makes it the number one mega evolution.

A Special Limited-Time Wi-Fi Distribution Event to Celebrate Mega Evolution Begins

Worldwide on October 12 th , 2013

Mega Evolution is a new, awe-inspiring transformation certain Pokémon can undergo during battle in the highly anticipated Pokémon X and Pokémon Y video games. Pokémon that Mega Evolve will tap into hidden reserves of strength and power that have never been realized in their regular Evolutions, giving players battling with a Mega-Evolved Pokémon a dominant advantage. Mega Evolutions will revolutionize Pokémon battles and usher in a new Pokémon transformation never before seen in the Pokémon world.

Pokémon like Mega Mewtwo and Mega Lucario will harness the power of Mega Evolution in battle and will see their looks change and stats increase, giving Trainers a great advantage against their opponents. Some Pokémon that Mega Evolve may even change their Ability or type while in battle. Only certain Pokémon, under certain conditions, can Mega Evolve, and unlike regular Evolution, Mega Evolution only occurs during battle—once the battle ends, the Mega-Evolved Pokémon will return to its usual state. One crucial element to undergoing Mega Evolution is a particular kind of item called a Mega Stone. Mega Stones are special stones that exist for all Pokémon that can Mega Evolve, each named after the Pokémon to which it grants power. For instance, the Lucarionite Mega Stone will help Lucario Mega Evolve. Mega Stones are hidden throughout the Kalos region, and players must find them to unlock the incredible power of Mega Evolution.

One Mega Stone, Blazikenite, will not be found during normal gameplay in Pokémon X or Pokémon Y. Players of the new titles will need to participate in a special limited-time Wi-Fi distribution event via Nintendo Network to get a Torchic holding a Blazikenite Mega Stone. This is how players can receive the Blazikenite Mega Stone when the new titles launch. The character distribution begins October 12 th , the same day Pokémon X and Pokémon Y launches worldwide for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, and this distribution event will only last for a short period of time. Players will need to evolve the Torchic they receive via the distribution into Combusken and finally into Blaziken in order to harness the power of this Mega Stone and Mega Evolve Blaziken into Mega Blaziken.

The Torchic received in this distribution also has the Hidden Ability Speed Boost, a very powerful Ability that increases a Pokémon’s Speed at the end of every turn. This limited-time character distribution event allows players to get a Torchic with Speed Boost, which becomes incredibly effective once they Mega Evolve Blaziken into Mega Blaziken.

Brand-New Method of Pokémon Training: Super Training!

Super Training or S.T. is being introduced in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, allowing players to help their Pokémon grow stronger when they’re not in battle. On the Touch Screen of the Nintendo 3DS system, players can have their Pokémon participate in Super Training, activities that will increase a Pokémon’s base stats, the underlying values that define its HP, Attack, Defense, Sp. Atk, Sp. Def, and Speed stats.

One Super Training activity involves having Pokémon train by facing huge Pokémon-shaped Balloon Bots in a virtual space, with both sides trying to shoot balls into the opponent’s goal. Using the Circle Pad and Touch Screen to avoid shots from the Balloon Bots while landing their own in the goal, players will enjoy this action-packed feature while increasing their Pokémon’s base stats to help them become stronger for battle.

For a more casual way to help Pokémon strengthen their base stats, Core Training lets players set up training bags, earned by completing Super-Training Regimens, for Pokémon in their party to use. Pokémon will work on Core Training by themselves, raising their stats on their own. By tapping on the Touch Screen during a Core Training session, players can help their Pokémon increase their base stats, too. Players will be able to see how their Pokémon are doing at their Core Training at any time from the main Super Training screen.

More never-before-seen Pokémon that players will encounter in the Kalos region have been announced by The Pokémon Company International. You can check them out at Pokemon.com/XY.

By emitting radio waves from its antenna-shaped whiskers, new Electric- and Fairy-type Pokémon Dedenne can communicate with far-off allies. It can also plug its tail into outlets to drain electricity from them. Its Ability, Cheek Pouch, is new to Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. If a Pokémon with this Ability eats a Berry during battle, it will not only reap the benefit from the Berry, but the Pokémon will also be able to regain HP. Dedenne can learn the new Electric-type move Nuzzle, which looks cute as the user nuzzles up to a target with its cheeks fully charged, but it’s quite dangerous! Nuzzle will do damage while paralyzing the opponent.

Bunnelby is a new Normal-type Pokémon that creates its den by digging in the ground with its large, shovel-shaped ears. These powerful ears are strong enough to chop right through thick tree roots, making them a force to be reckoned with in battle. Bunnelby can learn the Ground-type move Dig. On the first turn, the user burrows underground, and on the second turn, it attacks! In Double Battles, a Pokémon can use Dig to avoid its ally’s attack and then dish out damage on the next turn.

It is now known that Skiddo evolves into the already announced Gogoat. A Grass-type Pokémon, Skiddo has a gentle nature and is said to be the first Pokémon to live alongside humans. Because of this relationship, Skiddo doesn’t mind carrying people or supplies on its back, and it has become able to read the feelings of its riders through their grip on its horns. Skiddo can learn the Grass-type move Leaf Blade, where the user wields a sharp leaf to slice like a sword.

Introducing Gym Leader Korrina

Korrina is the Gym Leader in Shalour City, a seaside town known for its amazing views. It’s also home to the Tower of Mastery, which seems to have a connection to Mega Evolution. Gym Leader Korrina seeks to draw out her Pokémon’s strength to reach still greater heights, and it’s said that she may hold the key to Mega Evolution! In addition to being a Gym Leader, Korrina is a fantastic roller skater.

Pokemon GO players can Mega Evolve Charizard into X or Y – but which is best?

Pokemon GO’s recent Mega Moment event has introduced players to Mega Evolution! Trainers have been busy Mega Evolving their Pokemon, and have been faced with an interesting choice.

Most Pokemon only have one potential Mega Evolution – for example, the terrifyingly strong Mega Kangaskhan. However, Charizard is a special case, as it has two potential Mega Evolutions!

When players have enough Mega Energy, they can choose to obtain either Mega Charizard X, or Mega Charizard Y. The evolution you choose will require less Mega Energy in future, allowing you to Mega Evolve your Charizard more easily.

In this guide, we’ve broken down all the differences between Mega Charizard X and Y. If you can’t decide which version to evolve your Charizard into, we’ve got you covered!

Don’t forget to check out our Mega Latias and Mega Latios raid guide to get some extra Mega Energy!

Mega Charizard X vs Y Comparison Pokemon GO

How to mega evolve a pokémon in pokémon x and y

As with all Mega Evolutions, when you Mega Evolve your Charizard, it is a temporary change. As a result, both Mega Charizard X and Y will learn the same moves.

Just like the original Charizard form, both Mega Evolutions are powerful Fire-types. They have access to the following moves:

  • Fast Moves: Air Slash, Dragon Breath, Ember, Fire Spin, Wing Attack
  • Charged Moves: Blast Burn, Dragon Claw, Fire Blast, Flamethrower, Overheat

Our recommended moveset for Charizard depends on what form you choose to Mega Evolve it into. Let’s take a look at each Mega Evolution in detail!

Mega Charizard X Stats and Type

How to mega evolve a pokémon in pokémon x and y

Mega Charizard X excited lots of Pokemon fans upon release. It changed Charizard’s typing to Fire / Dragon-type, allowing the fan-favorite ‘Mon to finally become a Dragon type!

While this typing change means Mega Charizard X is vulnerable to Ground-type moves, it can also deal more damage with its powerful Dragon-type moves. Our recommended moveset for Mega Charizard X is:

  • Fast Move: Dragon Breath
  • Charged Moves: Dragon Claw, Blast Burn

Please note that in order to teach your Charizard Dragon Breath or Blast Burn, you’ll need to get your hands on some Elite TMs. Check out our Alolan Geodude Community Day Guide to find out how to get some!

Mega Charizard X also has different stats to Mega Charizard Y. Here are Mega Charizard X’s stats!

  • Max CP: 4353
  • Attack: 273
  • Defense: 213
  • Stamina: 186

Mega Charizard Y Stats and Type

How to mega evolve a pokémon in pokémon x and y

Unlike Mega Charizard X, Mega Charizard Y does not change type when it Mega Evolves. This means that Mega Charizard Y retains Charizard’s Fire / Flying-type.

While this type change means Mega Charizard Y will deal less damage with its Dragon-type moves, it remains immune to Ground-type moves. Here’s our recommended moveset for Mega Charizard Y:

  • Fast Move: Fire Spin
  • Charged Moves: Blast Burn, Dragon Claw

As we mentioned previously, both Mega Charizards have different stats. Here’s Mega Charizard Y’s stats:

  • Max CP: 5037
  • Attack: 319
  • Defense: 212
  • Stamina: 186

Should I Choose Mega Charizard X or Y?

How to mega evolve a pokémon in pokémon x and y

Because both Mega Charizard forms are terrifyingly strong, it’s hard to decide which to Mega Evolve into: Mega Charizard X, or Mega Charizard Y. We’ve put together a handy table to compare the differences between the two forms!

Mega Charizard X Mega Charizard Y
Type Fire / Dragon Fire / Flying
Max CP 4353 5037
Attack 273 319
Defense 213 212
Stamina 186 186

As the table shows, Mega Charizard Y has higher Max CP and Attack. This means that Mega Charizard Y is the better choice if you’re looking for an incredibly strong Fire-type attacker.

However, Mega Charizard X has its advantages, too. Using one in a raid will boost all your allies’ Dragon-type attacks, and it can deal more Dragon-type damage too!

All in all, both Mega Charizard X and Y are incredibly strong Pokemon in Pokemon GO. Which one you Mega Evolve your Charizard into depends entirely on your needs.

Both Mega Charizard forms are incredibly powerful in raids. Find out if they make our best raid team for May 2022 here!

Niantic / The Pokemon Company

Mega Evolutions are some of the most powerful fighters in Pokemon Go, but they won’t come cheap, so you’ll want to make sure you’re focusing your Mega Energy on the best ones.

The Mega Evolution mechanism was first introduced in Pokemon X & Y, giving existing species a far more powerful form. They’ve been dropped in recent mainline games, but Mega Evolutions are still around in Pokemon Go – as long as you have enough Mega Energy.

Mega Evolutions are a temporary state, and you’ll need to win Mega Raids to earn enough Mega Energy to get there. This is a time-consuming (and sometimes costly) process, so you’ll want to make sure you’re focusing on only the best Mega-Evolved Pokemon.

Below, we’ve ranked the best Mega Evolutions currently available in Pokemon Go, from Mega Gengar to Mega Blastoise, and explained why they’re the Pokemon you’ll want on your team.

6. Mega Aerodactyl

How to mega evolve a pokémon in pokémon x and y

  • Cost: 200 Mega Energy (40 Mega Energy after first use)
  • Fast Move: Rock Throw
  • Charged Move: Rock Slide or Ancient Power

Mega Aerodactyl is a brilliant Rock-type attacker for Raids, with a huge 292 Attack stat and a max 4655 CP. It doesn’t have much bulk and it struggles with a big weakness to Ice-type attacks, but you’ll get loads of use out of it with Legendaries like Rayquaza and Zapdos being weak to Rock.

The best feature of Mega Aerodactyl, though, is the boost it offers to Rock-types and Flying-types on your team – especially as there are a lot of meta-relevant Rock-type Pokemon like Tyranitar, Rampardos, and Landorus that will benefit from this.

5. Mega Gyarados

How to mega evolve a pokémon in pokémon x and y

  • Cost: 200 Mega Energy (40 Mega Energy after first use)
  • Fast Move: Waterfall or Bite
  • Charged Move: Hydro Pump or Crunch

Mega Gyarados is a great all-rounder in Pokemon Go, and it’s got the stats to back up its ferocious appearance: An astonishing max 5,332 CP means it has the highest potential CP in the game, and its 292 Attack stat mixed with decent Defense and Stamina makes it a force to be reckoned with.

Mega Gyarados can perform as either a Water-type Mega or a Dark-type Mega thanks to the new typing it gets when Mega Evolving. If you want to go for Water-type, Waterfall and Hydro Pump are superior move options. If you’d prefer Dark-type, go with Bite and Crunch for optimal DPS.

4. Mega Blastoise

How to mega evolve a pokémon in pokémon x and y

  • Cost: 200 Mega Energy (40 Mega Energy after first use)
  • Fast Move: Water Gun
  • Charged Move: Hydro Cannon or Hydro Pump

Blastoise has been a fan-favorite since the early Pokemon days, and its Mega Evolution makes it powerful enough to finally earn a place on your team. Water Gun and Hydro Cannon will make it one of the best Water-types you can get, and plenty of bulk means it’ll stick around for a long time.

Mega Blastoise gets bonus points for the boost it gives to fellow Water-type Pokemon, especially when many Legendary Raid Bosses are Ground, Rock, or Fire-type. Always keep in mind Mega Blastoise’s clear weaknesses to Grass and Electric-types, though.

3. Mega Venusaur

How to mega evolve a pokémon in pokémon x and y

  • Cost: 200 Mega Energy (40 Mega Energy after first use)
  • Fast Move: Vine Whip
  • Charged Move: Frenzy Plant or Solar Beam

Mega Venusaur was one of the OG Mega Evolutions in Go, and it remains just as desirable as it was back then. It has great bulk so it should be able to last a long time in battle, and a respectable 241 Attack stat means it can deal some huge damage too.

When it comes to moves, you’ll want a Grass-type build of Vine Whip as a Fast Move and Frenzy Plant as a Charged Move, thanks to its incredible damage output. Frenzy Plant is an Elite move, though, so if you don’t have access to it then Solar Beam is a solid backup option.

2. Mega Charizard Y

How to mega evolve a pokémon in pokémon x and y

  • Cost: 200 Mega Energy (40 Mega Energy after first use)
  • Fast Move: Fire Spin
  • Charged Move: Blast Burn or Dragon Claw

Mega Charizard Y is one of the few Pokemon that can rise above 5,000 CP in Go, and that makes it a massive threat. That’s not all, though, as it also has a ridiculously high 319 Attack stat, which more than makes up for its relatively low Stamina and Defense (as far as Mega Evolutions go).

Mega Charizard Y is on the costly side, with a huge 200 Mega Energy entry barrier and 40 Mega Energy required each time after, but it’s worth the investment as it’s one of the top Fire-types in the game, especially with Fire Spin and Blast Burn in its moveset.

1. Mega Gengar

How to mega evolve a pokémon in pokémon x and y

  • Cost: 200 Mega Energy (40 Mega Energy after first use)
  • Fast Move: Lick
  • Charged Move: Shadow Ball or Sludge Bomb

Mega Gengar is the best Ghost-type in Pokemon Go, and arguably the best Mega Evolution full stop. The beloved Kanto creature was already a beast in PvE, but the ability to Mega Evolve has taken it to a new level, with a max CP just under 5,000 and an absolutely wild 349 Attack stat.

Mega Gengar has access to some incredible moves like Shadow Ball and will be a powerful asset in almost any scenario – even when Ghost-types aren’t super-effective. Its only setback is its weakness to Ghost and Psychic-type moves, but it’s a small price to pay for excellence.

So there you have it: The best Mega Evolutions in Pokemon Go that you should be spending your time and resources on. Of course, any Mega Evolution is a powerful asset to have, but these ones rise to the top.

With the recent changes to Mega Evolution, it’s even easier to get Mega Pokemon, so give them a try and see what works best for you!

Can’t find Mega Stones in Pokemon X & Y? Follow these directions for Mega Stone success!

Before you can collect a Mega Stone, you have to get the Mega Ring first. After this, some Mega Stones will be granted to you, or you need to collect them separately.

Stones found after defeating the Elite Four can only be collected between 8:00pm-9:00pm and you’ll pick where they are straight away as there is a sparkly spot where the Mega Stone is hiding.

MegaBlaziken, MegaAbsol, MegaMawile, MegaMewtwo, MegaLucario and MegaAmpharos have been confirmed as the first six of the new kind of Pokemon evolution.

Remember how Game Freak teased that weird-looking Mewtwo-like Pokemon a while back? The latest edition of Japan’s CoroCoro magazine has revealed that it is indeed an evolution of Mewtwo, but not just an ordinary evolution, a mega evolution. That’s right, Pokemon X and Y will feature mega evolutions, which rather than your standard evolution are a kind of super-beefed up version of the initial Pokemon. It’s basically Super Saiyan but for Pokemon.

The Magazine revealed the appearance of the first six of these mega evolutions: MegaBlaziken, MegaAbsol, MegaMawile, MegaMewtwo, MegaLucario and MegaAmpharos. There doesn’t seem to be any clear pattern, with some of the megas coming from three-evolution families, some coming from two, and some coming from Pokemon that previously didn’t evolve at all. I guess you could consider mega Pokemon the counterpart to “baby” Pokemon introduced back in Gen II.

Each of the mega Pokemon will have a special ability that’s not normally accessible to them, for example, MegaBlaziken has SpeedBoost while MegaMewtwo has Insomnia. The respective Pokemon reach these forms through “Mega Evolution,” though it isn’t clear how this will be achieved.

Apparently, the key to understanding Mega Evolutions is via a character named Koruni (Japanese name), who is one of Pokemon X and Pokemon Y‘s Gym Leaders.

The magazine also reveals that Torchic, the fire starter from Ruby and Sapphire who can eventually become MegaBlaziken, will be the first distribution event Pokemon.

I think these look quite cool, Lucario and Absol in particular. It’s nice to see Game Freak revisiting their older, popular Pokemon when working on a new series, as i’m always much more excited to hear about new evolutions for existing Pokemon than brand-new Pokemon.

Pokémon fans of the original starters will be shocked to know that Pokémon X and Y will see their return, but not as expected.

Here are the new forms of Charizard, Venusaur, and Blastoise.

As the press release from the Pokémon Company reads,

Pokémon X and Y players do not receive Chespin, Fennekin, or Froakie from Professor Sycamore but are in fact given the choice of a classic partner Pokémon—Bulbasaur, Charmander, or Squirtle—from the very first Pokémon games, Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue!

A gameplay trailer for the Mega evolutions of Charizard, Venusaur, and Blastoise was also released. Watch their exciting transformations below!

New Mega evolution information

Mega evolutions were first announced earlier in August. It’s since been confirmed that Mega evolutions will be in battle only, and will be activated via held item stones.

Now, more details of Mega evolutions have been unveiled.

According to today’s press release, “trainers must also obtain a bracelet called the Mega Ring that holds a mysterious stone called a Key Stone. The Trainer’s Key Stone resonates with the Mega Stone held by his or her Pokémon.”

A first look at the two Mega Rings is below.

How to trade from ‘Pokemon Black’ and ‘White’

A new system for trading old Pokémon from the Black and White DS games was announced called the Pokémon Bank, which “allows players to conveniently store up to 3,000 of their beloved Pokémon on the Internet.”

In using the Pokémon Bank, players will be able to download an app on their 3DS that allows them to easily transfer Pokémon from Pokémon Black and White to their 3DS system. From there, they can load up their Pokémon X and Y games to access the previous Gen.’s creatures.

The app will be called Poké Transporter, and will have an annual service fee attached to its sister service, the Pokémon Bank. Read more on the cloud trading service here on Bulbapedia.

How to mega evolve a pokémon in pokémon x and y

These games are perhaps most notable for two new features: the new Fairy-type note the first new type since Generation II, a 14-year gap and Mega Evolution. A new Eeveelution, Sylveon, was the first announced Pokémon to have the Fairy type; older Pokémon that have inherited this type include Jigglypuff, Gardevoir, Marill, and Mawile, among others. Primarily introduced to balance the Dragon type, the Fairy-type is strong against Dragon, Dark, and Fighting types, and weak against Poison- and Steel-type attacks. Mega Evolution allows many older Pokémon to transform into even more powerful forms during battle, with new stats, Abilities, and sometimes new types. This is balanced by the inability of Mega Evolved Pokémon to hold any items that would aid them in battle other than the ones that activate their Mega Evolution, and that only one Mega Evolution can be used by a Pokémon Trainer on their team per battle.

The games were announced on January 8, 2013 via Nintendo Direct, and were released October 12 later that year across most territories, another first for the Pokémon series note Previously, countries outside of Japan would have to wait weeks or even months for Game Freak to finish localization before they could get their hands on a non-Japanese copy . X and Y feature multilingual support rather than all languages being on separate game carts, although choosing a specific language “locks” the game to that language until saved data is deleted.

Pokémon Origins, a four-episode anime special Mini Series, was produced as a nostalgia-laden tie-in special to help entice and garner support from players of the original Pokémon games and to premiere Charizard’s Mega Evolution of Mega Charizard X. The miniseries aired in Japan 10 days prior to the release of Pokémon X and Y.

Not to be confused with X Meets Y, the The X of Y trope, the Pokémon 10th anniversary CD album Pokémon X: 10 Years of Pokémon, Lugia (which has been referred to as “Pokémon X” in some media), Pokémon Crystal (which was once known as Pokémon X), the webcomic Pokémon-X, or the Pokémon the Series: XY anime.

Please place information regarding the new Pokémon on the page for Generation VI Pokémon sheet.

In what could be described as an Evolution beyond all Evolutions, Mega Evolution is a new, awe-inspiring transformation certain Pokémon can undergo during battle in the highly anticipated Pokémon X and Pokémon Y video games. Pokémon that Mega Evolve will tap into hidden reserves of strength and power that have never been realized in their regular Evolutions, giving players battling with a Mega-Evolved Pokémon a dominant advantage. Mega Evolutions will revolutionize Pokémon battles and usher in a new Pokémon transformation never before seen in the Pokémon world.

How to mega evolve a pokémon in pokémon x and y

Pokémon like Mega Mewtwo and Mega Lucario will harness the power of Mega Evolution in battle and will see their looks change and stats increase, giving Trainers a great advantage against their opponents. Some Pokémon that Mega Evolve may even change their Ability or type while in battle. Only certain Pokémon, under certain conditions, can Mega Evolve, and unlike regular Evolution, Mega Evolution only occurs during battle—once the battle ends, the Mega-Evolved Pokémon will return to its usual state. One crucial element to undergoing Mega Evolution is a particular kind of item called a Mega Stone. Mega Stones are special stones that exist for all Pokémon that can Mega Evolve, each named after the Pokémon to which it grants power. For instance, the Lucarionite Mega Stone will help Lucario Mega Evolve. Mega Stones are hidden throughout the Kalos region, and players must find them to unlock the incredible power of Mega Evolution.

One Mega Stone, Blazikenite, will not be found during normal gameplay in Pokémon X or Pokémon Y. Players of the new titles will need to participate in a special limited-time Wi-Fi distribution event via Nintendo Network to get a Torchic holding a Blazikenite Mega Stone. This is how players can receive the Blazikenite Mega Stone when the new titles launch. The character distribution begins October 12th, the same day Pokémon X and Pokémon Y launches worldwide for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, and this distribution event will only last for a short period of time. Players will need to evolve the Torchic they receive via the distribution into Combusken and finally into Blaziken in order to harness the power of this Mega Stone and Mega Evolve Blaziken into Mega Blaziken.

The Torchic received in this distribution also has the Hidden Ability Speed Boost, a very powerful Ability that increases a Pokémon’s Speed at the end of every turn. This limited-time character distribution event allows players to get a Torchic with Speed Boost, which becomes incredibly effective once they Mega Evolve Blaziken into Mega Blaziken.

Brand-New Method of Pokémon Training: Super Training!

Super Training or S.T. is being introduced in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, allowing players to help their Pokémon grow stronger when they’re not in battle. On the Touch Screen of the Nintendo 3DS system, players can have their Pokémon participate in Super Training, activities that will increase a Pokémon’s base stats, the underlying values that define its HP, Attack, Defense, Sp. Atk, Sp. Def, and Speed stats.

One Super Training activity involves having Pokémon train by facing huge Pokémon-shaped Balloon Bots in a virtual space, with both sides trying to shoot balls into the opponent’s goal. Using the Circle Pad and Touch Screen to avoid shots from the Balloon Bots while landing their own in the goal, players will enjoy this action-packed feature while increasing their Pokémon’s base stats to help them become stronger for battle.

For a more casual way to help Pokémon strengthen their base stats, Core Training lets players set up training bags, earned by completing Super-Training Regimens, for Pokémon in their party to use. Pokémon will work on Core Training by themselves, raising their stats on their own. By tapping on the Touch Screen during a Core Training session, players can help their Pokémon increase their base stats, too. Players will be able to see how their Pokémon are doing at their Core Training at any time from the main Super Training screen.

More never-before-seen Pokémon that players will encounter in the Kalos region have been announced this morning by The Pokémon Company International. You can check them out at Pokemon.com/XY.

· By emitting radio waves from its antenna-shaped whiskers, new Electric- and Fairy-type Pokémon Dedenne can communicate with far-off allies. It can also plug its tail into outlets to drain electricity from them. Its Ability,Cheek Pouch, is new to Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. If a Pokémon with this Ability eats a Berry during battle, it will not only reap the benefit from the Berry, but the Pokémon will also be able to regain HP. Dedenne can learn the new Electric-type move Nuzzle, which looks cute as the user nuzzles up to a target with its cheeks fully charged, but it’s quite dangerous! Nuzzle will do damage while paralyzing the opponent.

· Bunnelby is a new Normal-type Pokémon that creates its den by digging in the ground with its large, shovel-shaped ears. These powerful ears are strong enough to chop right through thick tree roots, making them a force to be reckoned with in battle. Bunnelby can learn the Ground-type move Dig. On the first turn, the user burrows underground, and on the second turn, it attacks! In Double Battles, a Pokémon can use Dig to avoid its ally’s attack and then dish out damage on the next turn.

· It is now known that Skiddo evolves into the already announced Gogoat. A Grass-type Pokémon, Skiddo has a gentle nature and is said to be the first Pokémon to live alongside humans. Because of this relationship, Skiddo doesn’t mind carrying people or supplies on its back, and it has become able to read the feelings of its riders through their grip on its horns. Skiddo can learn the Grass-type move Leaf Blade, where the user wields a sharp leaf to slice like a sword.

Introducing Gym Leader Korrina

Korrina is the Gym Leader in Shalour City, a seaside town known for its amazing views. It’s also home to the Tower of Mastery, which seems to have a connection to Mega Evolution. Gym Leader Korrina seeks to draw out her Pokémon’s strength to reach still greater heights, and it’s said that she may hold the key to Mega Evolution! In addition to being a Gym Leader, Korrina is a fantastic roller skater.

Charizard is even more sought after now.

How to mega evolve a pokémon in pokémon x and y

Mega Evolution has arrived in Pokémon Go, and with it comes the opportunity to capture Pokémon capable of Mega Evolution by participating in the new Mega Raids.

A handful of Mega Pokémon are already available to capture and use in Pokémon Go, including both Mega Charizard X and Y. The two different forms of the Fire-type starter are incredibly powerful, both sitting in the top tier of potential max CP in the game.

If you plan on attempting to capture each form of Charizard, you will need to prepare your team. So here is how to beat and capture Mega Charizard X and Y through Mega Raids in Pokémon Go.

Mega Charizard X counters

Compared to a normal Charizard, you will need to update your strategy against Mega Charizard X because it is no longer Fire/Flying-type. That means you can’t use Electric-types to take it down quickly, but Rock-types have actually become more useful because now it is vulnerable to Ground-type attacks too.

Groudon is actually your best option here, as the Legendary Ground-type won’t take super-effective damage from the Dragon and can hammer it with powerful moves like Earthquake. You won’t want to only rely on Groudon, though, because even its defenses won’t hold up forever against Mega Charizard X.

Your other best options are going to be powerful Rock-types like Rhyperior, Tyranitar, and Rampardos that can either take several hits or just lay into the Mega Evolved boss.

Rampardos is probably the worst option of the three because of its abysmal defenses. But if you just need something to quickly whittle the Dragon down, the combination of Smack Down, Rock Slide, or even Outrage can only help your cause.

Rhyperior is much bulkier and can handle almost all of the standard attacks Mega Charizard X will be dishing out. Tyranitar can also take the hits, but will hit a lot harder with its Smack Down and Stone Edge combo, but you really can’t go wrong with any of these picks.

Mega Charizard Y counters

In a more traditional matchup, Mega Charizard Y is a Fire/Flying-type and can be easily countered by Rock-types. It also hits on the special attack side, so it will be dealing a lot more damage in certain matchups.

Skipping Groudon, you can use Rhyperior, Tyranitar, and Rampardos to great effect against Mega Charizard Y because it is four-times weak to Rock-type attacks.

Zekrom would also be a great option here because it resists both of the STAB attack types from Mega Charizard Y thanks to its own Dragon/Electric-typing. Charge Beam and Wild Charge will be your best options here for moves, and make sure you have a solid defensive option in the back if you need to stall for time.

Other good options on both sides include Terrakion, Kabutops, Omastar, Kyogre, Gyarados, Vaporeon, Milotic, Suicune, and Swampert. That will likely vary, though, depending on the movesets you have available when preparing for the raid.

Once you complete your Mega Raid, you will have a chance to capture whichever Charizard you defeated and add it to your roster.

How to mega evolve a pokémon in pokémon x and y

The Pokémon Company announced the inclusion of a new type of evolution in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y called the Mega Evolution. This new transformation type will be available for certain Pokémon during battle. Announced Mega Evolved Pokémon include Mega Mewtwo and Mega Lucario. Some Pokémon that Mega Evolve may change their Ability or type while in battle.

The Mega Stone will allow Mega Evolution to take place and one exists for each Pokémon that can Mega Evolve. Each stone is named for its corresponding Pokémon and all are hidden throughout the Kalos region. One Mega Stone mentioned in today’s announcement was Lucarionite.

Blazikenite, one of the Mega Stones, will not be found during normal game play. Players of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y will have to participate in a limited-time Wi-Fi distribution event via the Nintendo Network to get a Torchic holding a Blazikenite Mega Stone. This Torchic will come with the Hidden Ability, Speed Boost. The character distribution begins on October 12, 2013 and will last for a short period of time. Torchic will need to be evolved into Combusken and then Blaziken in order to harness the Blazikenite Mega Stone.

Super Training (S.T.) is being introduced in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. This will allow players to help their Pokémon grow stronger when not in battle. Pokémon will be able to participate in Super Training activities that increase base stats. One of the announced Super Training activities involves having your Pokémon train by facing large Pokémon-shaped Balloon Bots in a virtual space with both sides trying to shoot balls into the opponent’s goal.

Core training will also allow players to strengthen their Pokémon’s base stats. They’ll be able to set up training bags for their Pokémon to use. These training bags are earned by completing Super Training regimens. Players will be able to help their Pokémon increase their base stats by tapping on the touch screen. The Super Training screen will allow players to see how their Pokémon are doing at their Core Training.

New Pokémon Announced:

Dedenne is an Electric- and Fairy-type Pokémon. It can communicate with far-off allies by emitting radio waves from its antenna-shaped whiskers. Its tail can be plugged into outlets to drain electricity from them. Its ability, Cheek Pouch, will allow it to regain HP if it also eats a Berry. Nuzzle, an Electric-type move, allows Dedenne to paralyze opponents.

Bunnelby is a Normal-type Pokémon that creates its den by using large, shovel-shaped ears to dig in the ground. These ears can chop through thick tree trunks. Bunnelby can use the Ground-type move, Dig, to help avoid its ally’s attacks in Double Battles and then attack on the next turn.

Skiddo is a Grass-type Pokémon which evolves into Gogoat. Skiddo lives alongside humans and doesn’t mind carrying people or supplies on its back. It can read the feelings of its riders through their grip on its horns. Skiddo can learn the Grass-type move, Leaf Blade, which allows it to wield a sharp leaf like a sword.

New Gym Leaders Announced:

Korrina is the Gym Leader of Shalour City. Shalour City is as seaside town and the home to the Tower of Mastery. According to today’s announcement, Korrina may hold the key to Mega Evolution.

Pokémon X and Y will launch worldwide on October 12, 2013 to the Nintendo 3DS and retail for $39.99. For more information on Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, visit pokemon.com/xy, Like the official Pokémon Facebook page at Facebook.com/Pokemon, and follow Pokémon on Twitter @Pokemon.
