Mewtwo Mega Evolution (X and Y)

Mewtwo evolving in either Mega Mewtwo X or Mega Mewtwo Y.

Mega Evolution is a second evolution introduced in Generation VI. It consists in certain Pokémon gaining an ultimate form of themselves. The Pokémon need special Mega Stones in order to evolve into their Mega Evolution forms, the final forms for one-evolution families and second/true final forms for two-evolution families. 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 devolves back into their pre-evolved forms, but they still evolve. You are limited to having only one Mega Evolution in a battle. All six of 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 Evolutions 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 even further!"

Anime

Main article: Pokémon: Mega Evolution Special I
Main article: Pokémon: Mega Evolution Special II

In the special Mewtwo — Prologue to Awakening and the movie Genesect and the Legend Awakened, a Mewtwo appeared that has the power to mega evolve into its Mega Mewtwo Y form.

In the regular anime, in the first episode of the XY series, Kalos, Where Dreams and Adventures Begin!, a Mega Blaziken appeared, belonging to an unknown Trainer. It appeared again in Mega-Mega Meowth Madness!, and it was revealed that its Trainer is Meyer, the father of Clemont and Bonnie.

In the anime special, Pokémon Origins, in File 2 - Cubone, two strange stones are given to Red, not knowing what they were. In File 4 - Charizard, while trying to catch a Metwo, he discovered that the stones were a Key Stone and a Charizardite X, allowing his Charizard to Mega Evolve into Mega Charizard X, making him capable of catching Mewtwo.

The special Mega Evolution Special I is especially focused in Mega Evolution. First, we see a Mega Abomasnow battling a Mega Gyarados in the rain. After that, an introduction of all Mega Evolutions known at the time is given. The special is about Alain, who wants to discover the secret of Mega Evolution, battling each Trainer that can make their Pokémon Mega Evolve. First, he is battling Astrid with her Mega Absol. After an intense battle, he wins. Following, he goes and finds an Aerodactylite, and a character named Remo challenges him to a battle with his Mega Garchomp nicknamed "Garchoo" to reclaim the Mega Stone. Alain wins again with his Mega Charizard X, and following he challenges the Elite Four member Siebold. In the battle, Siebold uses his Mega Blastoise and wins.

Back to the regular anime, in the episode The Bonds of Evolution, Ash and friends meet the Kalos Champion, Diantha, and they see her battle another Trainer using her Gardevoir with the capacity of Mega Evolving.

In the episode Mega Revelations!, Ash and friends meet Korrina and her Lucario, she explains that they're traveling to dominate Mega Evolution and then she joins them to travel. In the next episode, The Cave of Trials!, they meet Gurkinn, Korrina's grandfather. Both of them have a battle, using her Lucario and his Blaziken, respectively. The episode ends in Korrina's Lucario Mega Evolving. Unfortunately, in The Aura Storm!, when Lucario finally Mega Evolves, loses control of itself. Gurkinn then leaves them and tells her to train with her Mega Lucario. In the episode Calling from Beyond the Aura!, Korrina and Lucario train to dominate that Mega Lucario form, with no luck, Mega Lucario loses control once again. In the following episode, The Bonds of Mega Evolution!, Korrina meets Mabel and her Mawile. In that same episode, Korrina and Maple have a battle, Korrina Mega Evolves her Lucario, while Mabel her Mawile. During the battle, Mega Lucario loses again control, letting Mega Mawile win. In this episode, Korrina leaves the group.

The special Mega Evolution Special II will continue with the story of Alain. The episode will feature a Mega Sceptile, a Mega Swampert, a Mega Blaziken, along with Steven Stone.

    • Mega Evolution is a cross between Evolution and Forme Change.
