  • Zestevez

    I get it! Pokemon Z! Since all these pokemon are going super saiyan.

  • raitouniverse

    Twintails Mawile is adorable.

    • Raltrios

      Bonus points if tsun-natured.

      • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

        Looks like Iris

      • ShawnOtakuSomething


    • Shadowman

      I couldn’t agree with you more.

  • Ninastars

    Mega Ampharos just doesn’t care and remains majestic.

    • SlickRoach

      My theory on how it gained Dragon type is that the white “wool” it managed to regain is shaved Reshiram fur. Ampharos was going through a mid-life crisis and wanted to relive it’s youth again.

      • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

        His name is DenRyu.

        Electric Current.

        DenRyu taken literally is Den & Ryu.Den is electric, Ryu is Dragon.

        So he’s probably based of some other japanese myth now

        • Renaldi Saputra

          wait.. so it’s Ryu not Ryuu?

          • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

            Its Ryuu in romaji. but its spelt with the excised u

          • Renaldi Saputra

            it’s Ryuu in katakana

    • J_Joestar
  • Anesia Hunter

    btw what’s the purpose of mega ampharos becoming part dragon type? if they can only take on mega forms during battle, doesn’t that mean it won’t learn and can’t learn any dragon type moves?

    • Nanaki

      Currently Ampharos can only learn Outrage through a tutor, but I have a feeling it’ll adopt a few Dragon-type moves this generation, at least in the familiarity of Gyarados.

    • AuraGuyChris

      It’s an excuse for GF to add a typing for it because its Japanese name has the “-ryu” syllable, which means Dragon.

    • Suicunesol

      Well Ampharos does obtain Dragon type resistances, which are quite a few. It obtains resistances to the 4 elements, which includes 4x resistance to electricity. That’s got to amount to something.

    • J_Joestar

      movelists can change between generations, sometimes even within generations there may be some differences by 3rd games or remakes.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      the Denryuu name, they want to finally make the name become meaningful

  • Robgoro

    I can’t get over how absolutely ridiculous they made Ampharos look.

    • Nanaki

      I read your comment and then stared at Ampharos’ face.
      I agree with it’s reaction.

    • Herok♞

      Nah I like the look more, seems more regal and majestic and overall fabulous.

  • Freud_Hater

    …Why does Absol have the emo haircut Peter Parker has in Spider-man 3?

    • J_Joestar

      He is looking into starting a Visual Kei group

    • JustThisOne

      Bleeuugh. You’re making it hard for me to pretend Spiderman 3 never happened. xD

    • Spider-Man


  • mojack411

    I absolutely love Mega Mawile’s look. Definitely want it.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Tsundere Mega Mawile: Trainer-kun, I didn’t change because of you..*blush* ~ baka also When I look at MegaMawhile’s “head-mouth”, doesn’t that style look like Iris’s hair?

    • Renaldi Saputra

      but what if it’s male?

      • komiko12

        Obviously…. IT’S A TRAP!

  • AverageGamers

    I will never get tired of saying this: Mawile and Ampharos look awesome!

  • Kaitsu

    Just wait until you guys see Mega Kangaskhan, which is my favorite by far.

  • Suicunesol

    I just noticed Ampharos’ ears. Good lord.

    • Asura

      I would have not noticed if not for this post…

      How the hell did I miss them?

  • ChiffonCake

    Just look at that Ampharos’ glorious mane of white hair.

  • karasuKumo

    Absol, what have they done to you?! What is with the wings?! 0_0

    • Derrick McCoy

      Those aren’t wings according to the official site. Apparently it’s Absol’s hair standing on end from all the new power.

  • How about a 3rd Super Mega Pokemon evolution lol

    So can’t wait to play these =^_^=

  • JustThisOne

    Pfft. M.Ampharos is making the cutest derp face. Reminds me a little bit of all the “ditto” versions of pokemon.


  • Sardorim

    Mega Ampharos looks so fabulous~

    • mike dickson

      t hats why his name now is fabulros

  • Mega Amphoros looks like the lord of the samurais.

  • AndyLC

    I am catching a Mareep and naming him Fabio.


    Absol and Mawile will be on my main team along side Blaziken. the exactly same team of my times in the good ol’ Hoenn

  • Just Tim

    I hope Mega Absol is either Dark/Ghost or Dark/Psychic.

    Make it happen, Game Freak!

    • Renaldi Saputra

      can’t be Dark/Ghost it seems

      • Just Tim

        Looks like Dark/Psychic by default then.

        Regular Absol forewarns people of dangers (like a Psychic), yet gets misblamed for instigating it.

  • Hope we get a glimpse of more Fabulous Mega in the future. Maybe a Mega Jynx?

  • P4ine

    Mega Ampharos looks like a super saiyan three.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      all super saiyan have yellow hair (except SS 4), so maybe it doesn’t

  • mockturtle

    I freaking love Absol.

  • Niermyico

    Every Pokemon needs to have Mega Evolution. Gamefreak, you have open a can of worms theres no going back. I want to see Umbreon with cool glowing glyphs on its body, and Blastoise with more freaking cannons!
