Mewtwo Mega Evolution (X and Y)

Mewtwo evolving into Mega Mewtwo X or Mega Mewtwo Y, via a Mega Stone.

Mega Pokémon are special evolutions of Pokémon introduced in earlier generations. Some Pokémon need special Mega Stones in order to evolve into their Mega forms, the second and true final forms. Also; Pokémon can only enter their Mega Evolution Form by using the Mega Stone unique to their Species. For example: To Evolve Blaziken into Mega Blaziken; Blaziken must be holding the Mega Stone Blazikenite.

Mega Evolution does more than just change a Pokémon's appearance, it can also change their Type, Ability and Stats.


A good example is Ampharos; which after Mega Evolution becomes a Dual Type Electric/Dragon Pokémon. 

Mega Evolution is only possible during a Battle, however you can also attack in the same turn. After the Battle ends, the Pokémon returns to normal. You are limited to having only one Mega Evolution in a battle. All your team can however hold Mega Stones. Each individual mega stone can be used an infinite number of times, but only once per battle.

While some fans consider the Mega Evolutions to be little more than alternate forms, the Mega Pokémon are in fact their own species of Pokémon, as seen by the statement that accompanied Mega Mewtwo Y's original reveal which called it "a new Pokémon related to Mewtwo" and also Red stating in Pokémon Origins that Charizard has "evolved again!".

Current Roster


  • Kangaskhan is the only Pokémon that does not have an appearance change when it evolves into its Mega form. Instead, the baby in its pouch comes out to assist in fighting.
  • Mewtwo and Charizard have two Mega forms. The Mega form that's seen is based on what version of the game is being played. Basically, if in Version X, one receives different version of that Pokémon than what he/she would've received in Version Y.
  • Blaziken is currently the only Pokémon whose Mega form cannot be obtained through normal gameplay. Instead, an event will be held where you can receive a Torchic holding the Blazekinite, Blaziken's Mega Stone. Soon after, you can evolve Torchic all the way to Blaziken and let Blaziken Mega Evolve by holding the Blazekinite.[1][2]
    • Blaziken is also the only non-Kanto starter to recieve a Mega Evolution so far.
  • Each Mega Evolved Pokémon has +100 stat increased than original.
  • Mega Evolution X brings a type change in Pokémon.
