It’s a little late for reasons I’ll get into later, but here it is, Pokémon Generations time! First, the official release…
And now, our blind reactions.
…So yeah, like I said, I took a day to myself last week due to some stuff going on in my personal life. And, if you follow me on Facebook, you probably already know that my mother has been in the hospital to have her gallbladder taken out. The good news is that she’s doing much better now, and is actually beginning to eat solid foods again, so she should be home soon. And frankly, the sooner she’s home, the better I’ll feel.
Anyway, be sure to check in next time for when N. Harmonik and I react to more Pokémon Generations. Ja né!
Two Possible New Mega Evolutions In Pokémon ORAS + New Legendaries Found…In The Sky??? (UNCONFIRMED)
So, there’s been a new batch of supposed CoroCoro leaks that have surfaced. Now, these leaks are usually fairly solid, but until they’re confirmed by Nintendo, these will have to be marked as unconfirmed. Mostly, the leaks talked about Mega Latios and Mega Latias, which we’ve actually known about for like a year now, and it also mentioned how you can find the Legendary Dragons Dialga, Palkia, Reshiram, and Zekrom in this game. Now, the remakes have oftentimes had new Legendary Pokémon added, but here’s where it gets…weird. According to the photos in this leak, the Dragons are actually found hovering over otherwise unreachable islands. How do you reach them? Well, apparently you can ride Mega Latios and Mega Latias on the overworld through an item called the Eon Flute, and that there’s actually a few Pokémon you can find in the sky, which I assume are basically Wild Sky Battles. Again, this is something that could very well turn out to be a hoax, so take that for what it’s worth.
In addition to that, though, we’ve got two new Mega Evolutions possibly confirmed, Mega Pidgeot and Mega Beedrill, and WOW, we’re going WAY back with these two, huh? I mean, these two and their earlier forms were on a LOT of people’s early (and sometimes not-so-early) teams in the original games. Anyway, let’s take a look at these two, although since they’re unconfirmed, I’ll spare you the evaluation time. lol
If Vespiquen is the Queen of the hive, Mega Beedrill is clearly the King. Just look at this thing! Forget Twineedle, this thing’s signature move should be called Quintuplet Needle. If this thing was available back in the old days, it would never leave people’s teams. Apparently, its type remains Bug/Poison, but it gains the Ability Adaptability, meaning attacks it uses that are the same type as itself get even MORE power, and its already decent physical Attack and Speed are given boosts. I do hope, though, that if this turns out to be real, that Butterfree gets a Mega Evolution as well.
Mega Pidgeot is definitely a welcome surprise. And Goddamn if I haven’t been waiting for Pidgeot to get something new and awesome to make it useful. Here’s the thing that people have gotta be kicking themselves over, though: Ruby and Sapphire chronologically take place at around the same time as Red and Blue. That means that, if Mega Evolution had been a thing since the first games, Pidgeot would’ve had the ability to Mega Evolve since the beginning. Anyway, Mega Pidgeot keeps its Normal/Flying-type, and it gains a boosted Special Attack and the Ability No Guard, meaning both it and its opponent gain 100% accuracy for ALL of their moves.
Anyway, lemme know what you think of these, if you think they’re bogus, and which Pokémon you’d like to see Mega Evolve in the future. Ja né!
