New Pokémon and Mega Evolution Revealed + Leaked Copies of X & Y
So, there’s been a few new Pokémon unveiled, so let’s take a look at ’em!
Doublade is the evolved form of Honedge, and was actually shown off a little while ago, but I was waiting for more new Pokémon to appear. It follows the tradition set by Pokémon like Magnemite, wherein its evolved form is actually multiples of itself, which I’m actually fine with, seeing as how Doublade can dual wield with itself. lol Also, much bigger news concerning it, Doublade can learn Sacred Sword, a Fighting-type move that was once only known by the four Unova Legendary Pokémon, the Swords of Justice.
Slurpuff is the evolved form of Swirlix, and…
Aromatisse is the evolved form of Spritzee. Both are Fairy-type, and both are version exclusives (Slurpuff to X, Aromatisse to Y), and both look WEIRD. They aren’t bad designs, mind you, just weird. Still, their Fairy-type will give them a huge edge against a lot of Dragons…though not the next new Pokémon on this list. 🙂
Yep, they did it again: Mega Charizard X, which made its début as Red‘s Pokémon in Pokémon Origins. And yes, Charizard fans may rejoice, Mega Charizard X is a Fire/Dragon-type! Also, it has the Ability Tough Claws, which increases the damage done by physical attacks. I’m actually noticing a theme with the version exclusive Mega Evolutions: The X Mega Evolutions are more focused on physical attacks, and the Y Mega Evolutions are more focused on special attacks. And with both Charizard and Mewtwo having two separate Mega Evolutions, one has to wonder if more Pokémon will have version exclusive Mega Evolutions. Heck, maybe they all will. It would certainly give more reason to get one version over the other, or to grab both so you can get access to both forms.
So, that’s all the new Pokémon officially unveiled. That said, it HAS come to my attention that some copies of Pokémon X & Y have been leaked early. In the interest of fair play with Nintendo and The Pokémon Company, I will NOT be referring to any information leaked early on this blog. If something is officially revealed by either of those two, or information is given out on Bulbapedia or Serebii.net, I will discuss those, but NOTHING ELSE. What I WILL say is that, if certain rumours I’ve heard about the final evolutions of Chespin, Fennekin, and Froakie are true, then they have made me VERY happy. ^_^
Anyway, lemme know in the comments section below what you think of these new Pokémon, if you think more Pokémon will be getting version exclusive Mega Evolutions, and what you thought of Pokémon Origins. Ja né!
