you know, part of me wants to love this.  And I think I may.

It does sound an lot like late 90s GS Pokemon rumours.

I'm not disappointed or overly impressed wit any of the mega evolutions. However, I'm more fussed about the adorable bunny that was revealed <3 Looks like it's going to be one of my favourite pokemon ever tbh.

This is why you don't use a magazine to spread your information.

Heard a lot of bad things said about it, and I agree. As it is, this is just random powerups of random Pokemon with some lame additions, rather than offering anything new. It seems to be designed to appeal to the 'OMG More Numbers' crowd and especially the Japanese sorts - the special form from anime and sentai series.

If they'd revealed this with more of an explanation and a better reveal, there might have been something here, but right now it's us having to accept ridiculous-looking slightly improved version of Pokemon that could have been handled more nicely by adding new Pokemon or doing more with existing ones, instead of giving them a fancy haircut.

And to be honest, the 'powered up mode' look they seem to show here (like seen in, for an example I know of, the Dragonball series) feels too cutesy, anthropomorphic and bland. It' doesn't feel creative, which is part of what's so disappointing, anyone could have done this and it's more a tool of fake Pokemon creators than something that seems official.

Why not just make them evolutions? 4 stages won't break the game, this all just seems pointlessly convoluted.

That fairy mouse thing is adorable though.

They all just seem to be the standard 'mon with Sylveons scarf on  :dry:

They remind me of Burst Modes in Digimon, rather than the Mega stage...

Edit: I just saw MegaAmpharos... I think I love him already ;D

It feels like these mega evolutions would be something the enemy team would do, changing their DNA as a way of making them super-charged to make them stronger. Though it seems is this is something you can actively do in the game, so who knows...

They certainly look more badass. I do like the MegaBlaziken, I must say.
Yes.

Holy crap this looks....kind of ridiculous and kind of awesome at the same time. But seriously did BLAZIKEN need another power boost? Jesus christ.

I'm really hoping that this ties in with the DNA theme of X/Y and that this is some kind of lesson on horribly mutated Pokemon that have crippling setbacks or some kind of out-of-control power thingy.

It's like uber went dangerously out of control, I'm still not sure what to think. Mawile does look very awesome though, and I'm kind of happy that we understand Newtwo a little better now.

So Ampharos's evo line is now  Barnyard animal to eventually Dragon?

OK. I like.

thouuuugh it does seem sort of a cop out rather than designing new evos eh, I wait to see it in full but I'm intrigued.

MegaBlaziken is a crime against nature.

MegaMawile, however, is something I very much approve of. <3

[Obi Wan] - "I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened."

'Mega-Mawile' and 'Mega-Absol' should have just been flat out evolutions of both Pokémon. Really do not like anything about the concept of a 'Mega' evolution, just feels like they're taking the basic biology of Pokémon evolution away from it and trying to cover up a drought of ideas with some very risky, shiny features.

Really not warming to me at the moment, not a knee-jerk or anything, just one of the few things I never thought would get introduced..

Same here, though I am willing to wait it out and see what form it takes. In over 10 years GameFreak haven't let me down. Thankfully it seems like it's initiated with a stone item, which means its somewhat artificial in game-canon so it could be phased out right away if it's not successful.

I guess the mewtwo movie will explain more about it, now that newtwo is confirmed for mega-mewtwo.

I love that Ampharos. Love it. Need it.



I'm pretty much convinced it's my role in this fandom to love stuff everyone else hates.
