Here’s Mega Venusaur, Mega Charizard And Mega Blastoise In Pokémon X And Pokémon Y

By Ishaan . September 4, 2013 . 4:49am

As reported earlier today, you’ll get not one but two choices of starters in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. While one of your friends in the game will let you pick between Chespin, Fennekin or Froakie, the games’ Pokémon Professor will offer you Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle—all three with their own Mega Evolutions, shown below.



As previously detailed, Mega Evolutions are a temporary evolution that take place during battles in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. In order for them to activate, your Pokémon will need to be holding a Mega Stone unique to it. However, it has been revealed that there’s a second requirement as well—you’ll need to obtain a bracelet called the Mega Ring, which holds a mysterious stone called the Key Stone.


The Key Stone and the Mega Stone together trigger Mega Evolutions in battle. Once the battle ends, the Pokémon in question returns to its normal state.


Pokémon X and Pokémon Y will be available worldwide on October 12th.

  • I’m not sure if every starter will have a mega evolution, but I need to see a mega Infernape and Swampert.

    • i have my hopes up for mega-feraligatr!!! I hope/bet the new starters would have mega-evolutions as well!

      • I imagine him having a mouth full of Jesse’s hair. But, yeah I’d like to him too!

  • So.. Johto Starter Megas are next? MegaMeganium?

    • Jesse Torres

      I think that this generation’s starters will also get a mega evolution, they are probably saving it for last.

    • SlickRoach

      MegaMeganium used Mega Drain!


      • I was also wondering because of the Mega Forms, Skills with Mega word in them; Mega Kick, Mega Punch etc. could’ve been buffed greatly and now exclusive to such forms?

  • Go2hell66

    Venasaur digivolved TO!!!!!!!

    Venasuar with a stupid looking flower on its head-mon…

    • The Watcher

      haha yeah it was pretty lame.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething


    • Renaldi Saputra

      give it an extra cannon, bitches love cannon

      • Surgeon of Death

        Found the meme :)

        • Renaldi Saputra

          LOL, what a coincidence

          • Surgeon of Death

            Welp more like I had it in stock……

  • XypherCode

    It’s funny that Mega Blastoise has three cannons but instead shoots water from it’s mouth. :))
    But for me he’s much cooler than the other two.

    So basically we can get 1 starter Pokemon from 3 generations. Since we’re getting a Torchic at launch, you either get a grass or water type from Gen I and Gen VI. :))

    • Kalis Konig

      This plays out well for me seeing as how I plan on starting with Chespin, always pick Squirtle, and will get a torchic as DLC. lol

      • XypherCode

        Same as mine. :)
        But since we’re already getting Torchic I decided to pick Chespin as my grass type and Squirtle as my water type as well.

      • Micah

        That’s funny, cuz I was thinking of doing the same thing. The only difference is that I would pick Froakie and Bulbasaur. :)

    • 657rod

      Q_Q Johto is my fav region…. Though I am getting all grass pokemons I can (my fav pokemon is Cyndaquil being in a team with grass pokemons makes him the alpha male).

    • dragoon_slayer12

      I actually forgot about torchic. I’ll have 3 fires in my party then, which is overkill. I’m starting with Fennekin (the only visually appealing one to me), can’t pass up charizard (was my all time favorite till Lucario), and torchic will be my fighter until I get my Lucario (which I mite just transfer over then breed immediately). I can’t wait to see all the Mega evolutions, the ones they’ve revealed so far look sick (minus kangaskan, and venusaur looks plain to me)

  • Raze

    That’s kinda remind me of Blast Digivolve thing in DMW 3…

    • Renaldi Saputra

      me too.. LOL
      that triple cannon also reminds me about Cannondramon

      • Those cannons could even put Mugendramon to a rusty shame. :p

        • Renaldi Saputra

          lol, but not until Mugendramon evolve to Chaosdramon.. Red digizoid, dude

          also… HYPER MUGEN CANNON!!!

        • Raze

          Rusty?Yup…And He will become stronger…
          I mean….Look at Tyrannomon’s case…

  • Nanaki

    Does this pretty much confirm that MegaCharizard is Dragon-type as well?

  • sd28

    Mega Blastoise reminds me of final dancouger with the arm canons

    • Lynx

      Can’t unsee. The pose doesn’t help either.

      • s07195


  • Why did my favourite of the three get shafted? :(

    Charizard is “meh” in the sense that we all knew he was going to look cool regardless. Blastoise looked like it should’ve been in Medabots, or something.

    • Miss_Madness

      Technically what could you do to Blastoise to make it look cool but keep it’s over all design aesthetic?

      Which is sort of the thing you’ll have to get use to with megaforms. But then some people’s expectations get a bit too high and they’ll only be disappointed end.

      • He would get four cannons to form a cross shape in his shell, if I were to design a Mega Evolution for it!

      • I was talking about Venusaur (since Bulbasaur is my fav). I think Blastoise looks cool.

        • Miss_Madness

          I thought that was what you meant but I wasn’t sure. So just replace Blastoise with Venusaur in this case.

          • What you say is true. Just felt a bit lacklustre, to me. But I still love Venusaur nonetheless.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      Blastoise is now RustTyrannomon.. lol



        • Renaldi Saputra

          for the back cannon, rusttyrannomon
          for overall, jumbogamemon.. yes

  • Nitraion

    O_o so now pokemon have something like digivice or something….
    I mean pokemon evolution is permanent unlike digimon…
    this is kinda weird to me… XD

    • Arcana Wiz

      actually this device to let a pokemon have a mega form it’s temporary so the similarities are big.

      • Nitraion

        Lol okay so we can manipulate pokemon evolution now…
        Wow pokemon science researcher is not joking in their R&D

        • Steven Higgins

          I think Colress is responsible for this and Pokemon Amie

          • But Team Rocket are the ones who did more advances in the field!

          • Steven Higgins

            Maybe, but If you remember Colress wanted to bring out the “Full extent of a Pokemons power” and found that the way to do that was to “Enhance the bond between Pokemon and Trainers”

          • Lucas Martinez

            All of my yes!

    • Miss_Madness

      Believe it or not digimon evolution is still more complicated then pokemon evolution (in game). Since digimon in their baby forms can have like 4 different branching evolutions any of those can branch off as well. But you can revert right back down to baby stage and start going down a different line if you want. Depending on the game some times those lines over lap. Not to mention adding more over time.

      • They are Digital Monsters. Of course you can reboot and reprogram them. Pokémon are more organic and alive than Digimon. And outside of genetic engineering, once a Pokémon evolves, they stay that way.

        • Miss_Madness

          The more organic and alive is somewhat with certain pokemon. But I just was pointing out that the digimon is way more complicated then just the evolution not being permanent.

          • Well, the Magnemite Family now have genders, considering this image. So, anything can change!

          • AuraGuyChris

            Neat. Now we can breed machines together.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            LOL, they have genders now

          • Ferofax

            Machines have always had gender ports, in case people forget. Like, male plug to female socket.

            Because females love to socket.

          • J_Joestar

            that’s a interesting way to look at it, kinda depraved too when you think of something like a wired router in a place with several computers

          • I now wonder if the term “robosexual” circulates in the Kalos region.

          • Robgoro

            That’s really interesting. I wonder if they’ve changed the breeding system at all.

        • Nitraion

          Exactly…That’s why i think this is so weird… XD

        • Renaldi Saputra

          digimon also do, only on v-pet games..
          digimon is A.L. (Artificial Life), and it’s reasonable that digimon had many evolution forms, since they’re based on data so they’re not limited to evolve..

          only digimon had an exact baby forms, not like pokemon.. every digimon starts from baby form and baby size

          • J_Joestar

            yeah, kinda funny that only a few Pokemon have baby forms, and they usually wont appear unless a parent is holding certain items.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            also those baby pokemon have been being capable for fighting, even if they have just hatched from the eggs..

    • PreyMantis

      Ditto and Mew has been doing this before this thing nor Digimon ever came out.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        they only copy the pokemon in front of their sights.. not changing forms or evolve or temporary power up


        doppelganger =/= from timed evolution

  • Sentsuizan_93

    Two starters + Torchic, eh? SWEEET!

  • Arcana Wiz

    Nostalgia is killing me….. I NEED THIS!

  • Steven Higgins

    It would probably be smarter to get a starter of each type but I’m gonna get all Fire types
    Fennikin is just adorable and Mega Charizard is awesome.
    Water Gym is gonna kick my butt so bad -_-

  • NintendoPSX

    Well shit half my team is dicked from the get-go. Fennekin, Charmander and Torchic. COME AT ME ROCK…AND GROUND…And water…Damn.
    Realistically I’m probably going to have to shaft all non-6 gen Pokemon for the first playthrough.

  • Göran Isacson

    Aawww yiss, bring on the Mega Blastoise and Triple cannons! In between this, two starter choices AND the ability to easily transfer all your old Pokemon to the new via that nifty Pokemon bank thing (albeit for a fee) there sure seems to be a lot to get excited for in the new generation!

  • DrakeClawfang

    Blastoise gets Arm Cannons, Charizard gets Arm Blades…Venusaur gets fatter and some extra vines on the tree.

    Yeah, I think Venusaur kinda got the shaft here :p Not like I was gonna pick it but still.

  • Chaos_Knight

    I guess its safe to assume all starters from all Gens to have Mega Forms.

    • It’s the general consensus, actually!

  • French

    This is pretty cool, Charizard looked terrible before now it looks cool. Blastoise is alright and Venasaur looks decent. Cant wait to play this game

  • Renaldi Saputra

    Charizard and Venusaur got not so much difference, but when I see Blastoise, OMG Triple Cannon!!

    hey, cool digivice btw..

  • Grape Monet

    Mega Charizard has Drought. MEGA CHARIZARD. Has DROUGHT.

    • J_Joestar

      Blastoise gets a new ability! boosting “Pulse” moves, I wonder how effective it will be though,
      Venusaur just gets fatter so that he can take ice and fire attacks better.

    • Fo rizzle!? :O

  • Jesse Torres

    Fangasm to the fullest.


    Blastoise mega digivolve…

    • Renaldi Saputra

      my side

  • J_Joestar

    Looks like a Sentai Henshin device.
    Just needs more Posing before actually pressing the button.

    • I think Ash will have the honor of doing that in the anime.

  • Jesse Torres

    Can I call this the best pokemon game ever?

  • Jesse Torres

    Can i call this the best pokemon game ever?

  • Jesse Torres

    can i call this the best pokemon game ever?

  • Jesse Torres

    Can i call this the best pokemon ever, its officially the best.

  • Jesse Torres

    Very interesting development.

  • Jesse Torres

    Why do my comments keep being deleted. That”s just rude.

  • Raltrios

    Mega Venusaur has Thick Fat. Protection from both Fire and Ice on my very first starter Pokemon? Yes, please!

  • Warboss Aohd

    Go Go Pokemon, you Mighty Morphin Pokemon!

    • Suicunesol

      “Make my monster grooow!!!”


      “Time for Megazard power now!”

  • Sardorim

    I want Megazard to be Fire/Dragon…

    • Suicunesol

      Should have been a Dragonzard…

  • MrRobbyM

    Looks like Mega Venusaur got mega shafted

  • heartless141

    mega blastoire, and blastoire in general, what’s the point of those cannons if you gonna shoot stuffs outta your mouth?

  • NightzeroAX

    The appearance of them hasn’t changed at all except for Blastoise but even so it pointless as he still shoots out of his mouth…..

    • Landale

      Charizard gets a third horn, blades on the arms, it’s wings appear slightly tattered, the tops of the wings are now less a nub and more a claw, the lighter portion of it’s body now continues up to it’s jaw, and there’s a spike on it’s back just before the tail.
      Venusaur’s plant has grown once more, now having leafs coming from near the flower in addition to down at it’s back, and now has a flower on it’s face as well as some spots on the face that weren’t there before.
      The complaint about the attack animation is kind of odd. I can’t recall them ever specifically tailoring an attack’s animation to the Pokemon’s form.

      • miju

        Attack location programming is the best thing. Does anyone remember how a Skunktank looked when it used Flamethrower? Came out directly from its rear.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        the mega charizard looks like Dragonoid from Bakugan

  • CamulaHikari

    A friend and mine’s conversation about the Mega Evolution typing:



  • RichyGaming

    Digimon, digital monsters~ Digimons are the…..

  • Seraph

    Did anyone notice that Charmander’s cry is different?

  • Solomon_Kano

    The only one that looked cooler to me was Mega Blastoise. Charizard’s changes were whatever and Venusaur… I honestly couldn’t tell what changed with Venusaur.

    • Anime10121

      His tree got taller, lol

      and I agree wholeheartedly.

      • Solomon_Kano

        Well, I guess that’s something lol.

    • He looks more… Hawaiian, IMO. :p

  • hazelnut1112

    This is so Digimon it’s pretty damn cool.

  • D. Collins

    I really REALLY hope they make Mega Electrode!!!

  • True

    So is Charizard a dragon yet?!

    • J_Joestar

      lol nope, still Fire/Flying

  • Henshin!

  • Prinnydoom

    There is absolutely no way in hell i am missing this now. I will fight satan himself if need be. Amazing, absolutely amazing.

  • artemisthemp

    Mega Charizard is the best and Megavenusaur is the worst.

  • katamari damacy

    The only pokemon to me are the original 150! This seals my purchase of the game

  • King mogz

    Is venasaur the only one out of the three to NOT get a cool upgrade? :(

  • Vash bane

    so is charizard fire/flying still(I mean for its mega form)? XD it looks some awesome
