Mewtwo Mega Evolution (X and Y)

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

Mega Pokémon are a new evolution feature of Pokémon introduced in earlier generations. Some Pokémon need special Mega Stones in order to evolve into their Mega forms, the second/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 Mega Evolves. Instead, the baby in its pouch comes out to assist in the battle.
  • Mewtwo and Charizard have two Mega Evolutions. The different evolutions are obtained with version-exclusive Mega Stones - for example Mewtwonite X can only be obtained in Pokemon X and causes Mewtwo to evolve in Mega Mewtwo X. The item can be traded between versions.
  • Blaziken is currently the only Pokémon whose Mega Evolution cannot be obtained through normal gameplay. Instead, an event will be held where player can receive a Torchic holding the Blazekinite, Blaziken's Mega Stone. Soon after that player 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, with the exception of Mewtwo X, it's Attack stat increses by 200.
  • Mega Evolution X brings a type change in Pokémon.
  • Mega Evolution was supposedly the transformation method, but keep the method as evolution method.
    • Mega Evolution is a cross between Forme Change and Evolution.
  • Despite being introduced in Generation VI, none of the Pokemon from Generation VI (or Generation V for that matter) have a Mega Evolution.
  • Generation I has the most Pokémon with a Mega Evolution at 10, while Generation IV has the least amount with 3.
