Mega evolutions? MEGA evolutions...? MEGA EVOLUTION?!? What is- what am I- what even- what do you even do?!
There hasn't been a big shake-up in the Pokémon scene in a while, but Pokémon X & Y are taking big risks with inclusions like: horde mode, a new Pokémon type, since Fairy is the first new type since they added Steel and Dark in Gen II, a more proactive inclusion of EV training in the game, and a simultaneous world-wide release of both games in all regions. But today's news isn't just big... IT'S MEGA!
Let's see what I think... (we're gonna skip the new Mewtwo form since I talked about it here and here).
So, we've got the least news about this and it is probably the most disappointing; we've wanted a pre or post evolution for Kangaskhan for years and the result is slightly uninteresting. We've got the baby out of the pouch to fight with a special ability that lets them get extra hits in. We can hope it'll be fighting or normal/fighting, but we'll have to see. Let's move onto the cooler stuff.
HERE, but I still got some stuff to say. Ampharos is one of my second generation favorites and always felt underwhelming due to it's slow speed. Perhaps, with the boost of becoming an Electric/Dragon and getting a nifty ability of Moldbreaker (maybe some new moves), and some more impressive stats might allow this fella to break into the competitive arena with his glorious locks of hair. A man can dream.
This is the most perplexing of the Mega Evolutions; Blaziken is already a borderline or uber tier Pokémon, depending on who you ask, and the fact they'd show one starter final form with a Mega Evolutionm, and not any others, is confusing. On the other hand, Blaziken has always received special treatment, with Torchic being the only starter allowed in the Pokémon PAL park and it seems to be getting Blaziken's canceled/banned Dreamworld ability Speedboost. The biggest redeemer for this is that there will be a Torchic giveaway, this Fall, with it holding the item needed to Mega Evolve.
