    In what could be the biggest thing to happen in Pokémon games in a while, a new type of evolution is introduced. We had a teaser of this a while back when the new form of Mewtwo was revealed, now it is confirmed that this is mega evolution and other Pokémon can undergo it as well. A caption in this new trailer states 'Mega evolution is only possible during battle!' which suggests it may be temporary.

    During mega evolution the symbol present on the japanese covers of the game is visible above the Pokémon.

    This looks like it symbolises DNA and could indicate that mega evolution is the result of DNA alteration.

    We already have a pokemon thread, no reason to make a new one.

    Mega evolution? There's mega evolution now?

    Damn. Somewhere out there, Charles Darwin must be spinning in his grave (though probably over some unrelated cause, since Pokemon is a pretty silly thing to spin in your grave over).

    I don't know if that says more about the feature itself or the state of the series as a whole.

    We should have a temporary sticky in the USN. "ALL X/Y NEWS GOES IN HERE" pointing to the original, super topic. It's close to release date, there will be tons of news all split up every week. No other game does this...

    edit: On topic, I'm not sure how I feel about this. It's good that changes are happening, the series needs change. But I'd rather not mess with existing creatures...

    Kangaskhan has a mega evolution too now. And I was just telling everyone how it would, whether it be baby form or an evolution...it was pretty close.

    Hummm MEGA MAGIKARP!!!! and I think mega evolution isn't all that good because we know it ain't permanent and only happens in battle once conditions are met but the most interesting thing is the ...nites are they single use hold items like berries or permanent items???
