Pokemon X Y "Mega Evolutions" revealed (trailer) + new art and details

(new thread for new news- the trailer seemed important enough)

Trailer!

Discover some of the incredible Mega Pokémon that await in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y! A Mega-Evolved Pokémon will be able to tap into a strength far greater than it could before. When a Pokémon becomes a Mega Pokémon in battle, Trainers will have a great opportunity to turn a battle around and snag a win!

Unlike regular Evolution, Mega Evolution occurs only during battle. Once the battle ends, the Mega-Evolved Pokemon will return to its usual state.

Mega Lucario:


Mega Blaziken:


Mega Mewtwo:



Other known Mega's include Ampharos, Absol and Mawile.

New Pokemon:

Dedenne


The round shape of Dedenne makes this Fairy-type Pokémon instantly recognizable. Dedenne has the Cheek Pouch Ability, new to Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. If a Pokémon with this Ability eats a Berry during battle, it will not only reap the usual benefits of that Berry, but will also be able to regain HP.

Bunnelby


It is said that the Normal-type Pokémon Bunnelby creates its den by digging in the ground with its large, shovel-shaped ears.

Skiddo


The gentle-natured Skiddo is said to have been the first Pokémon to live alongside humans. Thanks to living with humans so long, it doesn’t seem to mind carrying people or loads on its back. Skiddo evolves into Gogoat, another Pokémon you'll be able to ride!

Why did you make new thread when we already have a thread. Now you spoiled it for most of people who went black out with your thread title.
 
so... what is it?

How does it happen?

Do you get a move call 'mega transformation', or is it like a limit break that triggers after you take a lot of damage or something?

New thread for new news. The trailer was lost in the last thread, and I bet there are a lot of people who won't go too deep into it but that would also like to know it exists.

Bane? Get them on board, I'll call it in.
Looks like Dedenne is the Electric Rodent of this generation (see Pikachu/Pichu/Plusle & Minun/Pachirisu/Emolga)

Mega evolutions sound so strange. At least we get a free Torchic out of the deal.

I'm not sure how this information is new news since other thread were created for same information right?
Neogaf mods frown upon mega threads to get new info out. This thread includes a trailer and the new artwork. No one wants to look through that cluttered mess hype thread. This is the easiest way to get the information out to more people. Calm down.

What other thread? There's a Pokebomb hype thread which looks like a community discussion thread. News should be in the title, no? I thought GAF was down on mega threads and encouraged more specific ones like these.

I'm confused. Is there a mega form for all pokemon? If not, how will the balancing work?

One con is that you can't use another held item, like a Choice item, with a mega evolution.

Ah, so it takes up the item slot. I don't know much about the mega evolution. Has Nintendo released any info besides unveiling it?

I hope we can't transfer, to be honest. Doing so has always been a slog. I want a fresh start.

(If we can transfer, just move all the 'mon over in one go, dammit)
 
hamtaro fucked raichu hard.




but it only happens in battle... does your guy just transform at the start of battle if its holding it?


curious what the cons are, otherwise you'd always want to be in this form.

Well, from what I remembered, PokeBomb Hype was title for people who requested to not have any spoilers in title. I could be wrong.

I predict that Mega Pokemon only occur in times of desperation, ergo your pokemon has to have taken damage.

My guess anyway.

I don't think the super form is an immediate thing like Giratina's was.
 
I'm confused. Is there a mega form for all pokemon? If not, how will the balancing work?

Mega Forms won't suddenly turn Ampharos into Rayquaza , from what we now it will boost their best stat and you need to hold a particular item and also meet certain conditions in order to mega evolve in battle. (The conditions haven't being told yet)
 
Here's some fan art to give you an idea how Mega Ampharos and Mega Mawile look, since they don't have official art available and scans are banned.

Mega Ampharos is Electric/Dragon and has the ability Mold Breaker.

Mega Mawile is Steel/Fairy and has the ability Huge Power.
