Pokémon X & Y – Kalos Region Starters’ Final Evolutions & Three New Mega Pokémon
So, as I said before, a TON of info has been out and about since the leaked copies of Pokémon X & Y, which I have chosen not to reveal. However, as some information has been officially unveiled on Serebii.net and Bulbapedia, I think it’s fair game to talk about six Pokémon shown off in CoroCoro!
The final evolved form of Chespin, Chesnaught is a Grass/Fighting-type. It definitely doesn’t look like it’s all that quick, but I’d hate to be staring it down in a dark alley. Also, I’ve heard rumours that it knows an attack that may make up for its probable lack of speed, as well as its x4 weakness to Flying-type Pokémon. Overall, I think I should be satisfied with this being the last evolution of my starter in Pokémon X. ^_^
Fennekin’s final evolved form, Delphox, is a Fire/Psychic-type. This was probably the single hardest Pokémon to NOT TALK ABOUT on here, as most people who read my stuff and talk to me know that I have prayed we did not get ANOTHER Fire/Fighting-type as a starter. And judging from appearance and theme, I’d say Delphox is the special attacker, Chesnaught is the behemoth, and the next on this list is the speedster.
Greninja is a Water/Dark-type, and the final evolution of Froakie. With this, we can safely confirm the Warrior/Wizard/Rogue theme present with the Kalos Region Starter Pokémon. Also, I find it interesting that the three are Fighting, Psychic, and Dark, as there was a rumour that the Sinnoh Region Starters were going to be those types, and they further the rock, paper, scissors game played with the three.
Mega Gengar is one Mega Evolution I DID know about for sure, but again, couldn’t talk about. And frankly, it’s creepier-looking than ever. Just that one eye in the centre of its forehead, creep the heck outta me. It doesn’t change its typing at all, though given the newfound advantage Poison-types have against Faeries, that might be a blessing. It DOES, however, gain a new Ability in Shadow Tag.
Mega Aggron is a Mega Pokémon I’d heard rumours about, but wasn’t sure existed. Mega Aggron looks like a freaking tank, and I expect it to function like one, too. Upon Mega Evolving, Aggron becomes a pure Steel-type, and gains the Ability called Filter. Also, I should note that, according to Serebii.net, Aggron and its family are exclusive to Pokémon X Version, while the next Pokémon and its family are exclusive to Pokémon Y Version.
Mega Tyranitar is a Mega Evolved Pokémon that I honestly knew NOTHING about. lol Also, I swear, it looks even more like a monster that would attack a Japanese harbour now than it ever did! Its typing and Ability do not change, meaning it is a Rock/Dark-type that knows Sand Stream. Speaking of, word is that Abilities that change the weather now only do so for 5 turns, not permanently. Some fans are mixed about that, but given that it still changes as soon as they come out, with no moves wasted, there’s still a pretty big advantage there.
Anyway, that’s it for the new Pokémon revealed in CoroCoro, but Serebii.net has a lot more info regarding new Pokémon, attacks, Abilities, Gym Leaders, and so on. I’ll cover some of this tomorrow, and once the game is officially available in North America. Ja né!
