It has been a big day for Pokemon fans as next month’s issue of the Japanese Magazine, CoroCoro, has been leaked. In the leaks, we see that three new Mega Pokemon have been revealed, bringing the total count of confirmed Mega Evolutions for Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire to 13. The three new Mega Pokemon revealed today were none other than Mega Gallade, Mega Sharpedo, and Mega Camerupt. Now we have a lot of information to cover, so hold on to your hats folks, and let’s see what we’ve got in store!
Mega Gallade retains its Psychic/Fighting typing, and gains the ability Inner Focus when it Mega Evolves. From what the screenshots show, it will replace Gardevoir as the main Pokemon of one of your rivals in game, Wally. No word yet on how Gallade’s stats change when Mega Evolved.
Mega Sharpedo retains its Water/Dark typing, and gains the ability Strong Jaw, which increases the power of biting moves by 50%. It has also been confirmed that all of Sharpedo’s stats get an increase upon Mega Evolving.
Mega Camerupt retains its Fire/Ground typing, and gains the ability Sheer Force, which increases the power of moves with additional effects by 30%, while eliminating said effects. It has also been confirmed that upon Mega Evolving, Camerupt’s Speed stat is decreased, while all of its other stats are increased.
Along with the three new Mega Pokemon, the leaks also reveals the abilities of Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre, which are not in fact, Drought and Drizzle. Primal Groudon has the ability Land of Endings, which is said to activate Strong Sunlight, while Primal Kyogre has the ability Sea of Beginnings, which is said to activate Strong Rain. While it is unknown what this will do in battle, it is possible that these abilities could bring back permanent Weather in, or they could do something completely different.
It has also been revealed that the previously unnamed attacks that Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre have been seen using in Trailers up until now are called Cliff’s Blade and Origin Wave respectively. Base Power, Accuracy, and any secondary effects have yet to be revealed. It has also been hinted that Rayquaza holds some secret to Mega Evolution.
Any finally, to round off this barrage of information, a special Serial Code has also been given in the leaks. Said Serial Code will allow you to download a trail version of Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, in which you choose either Combusken, Marshtomp, or Grovyle, and ends with you obtaining a yet-to-be-seen Mega Evolution. Any Pokemon and Items you receive during this Demo will be transferable into the full games once released. It is also hinted that playing the demo every day will unlock something special.
Well, that’s all I have for now folks, but remember, tune in for the latest Pokemon news, as it happens! Until then, this is HeartlessAngel, signing off!
