    Charmander! My favorite starter looks so beautiful in 3D! *_*

  • XypherCode

    It looks like the trainers should be the ones transforming. Super Sentai pose anyone? *It’s Mega Evolution time! Mega Ring!! (background explodes)* XD

  • Just Tim

    I sincerely hope Mega Charizard would be Fire/Dragon, with updated resistances for Gen. VI AND a brand-new ability that would make it viable for OU (read: give it only one weakness).
    If you guys recall correctly, Stealth Rock made Charizard its bitch since Gen. IV.
    Just for fun, I’ll make this up:
    Mega Charizard
    Dirt Eater (x0 Rock- and Ground-type attacks.)
    x0 Rock, Ground
    x1/4 Fire, Grass
    x1/2 Bug, Steel, Electric
    x1 Fairy, Psychic, Dark, Water, Ghost, Fighting, Ice, Normal, Flying, Poison
    x2 Dragon

    • in one of the videos it shows fire resists fairy

      • Just Tim

        I was too busy with real life at the moment.
        Either way, I’m glad that’s been confirmed.

    • Link

      I think the website said its still Fire/Flying

  • Unsigned Artist Suicide Help

    Pokemon really came a long way, i’m proud to be a supporter.

  • Demandred

    Venasaur looks stupid and Blastoise looks like a Digimon.

    Charizard looks freaking majestic though. <3

    • Renaldi Saputra

      charizard looks more like Dragonoid from bakugan.. still cool anw

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Mega Blastoise <3 looks like rape!!!! I freaking love it

  • Suriel Cruz

    Yup! DigiPokemon! xD

  • Chris Yuen

    “The bond that you share with your Pokemon allows them to mega-evolve…”
    *starts thinking* You have mastered the Charizard Social Link! Your power to tame Pokemons of the Fire Arcana has reached its maximum! *Charizard evolves to Ultimate form*

    • MegaCharizard happily expresses his deep bond and affection by breathing fire to your face~! (Just like Ash’s Charizard in the anime.)

    • Pockystix

      Mega Charizard will now DIE FOR YOU

  • MegaCharizard is sexy. (Losing that round body of being a Charizard.)

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      MegaCharizard: “you want to ride me….all night, right? I’ll show you the world……because I know fly “

      • Dexward

        Too lewd.

  • Highasthesky

    My team is going to be at a major disadvantage against water-types. Charmander,Fennekin, and Torchic. I’m screwed.

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      Lmao Im going to box torchic and get bulbasaur and charmander.

    • Steven Higgins

      I’m in the same boat

  • Suicunesol

    I remember in Pokemon Stadium, Blastoise got special treatment when it fired a Hydro Pump. While every other Pokemon fired one blast from its mouth, Blastoise fired two blasts from each of its cannons and was the only Pokemon to have that animation. Guess it was too much to hope for to get the same special treatment as before. :P

    • Arcana Wiz

      yes it is kinda strange he having three canons but using his mounth to shoot water.

    • Lucas Martinez

      We can have hope unti they release the game… “Game footage not final”

  • fenix7

    they don’t look noticeably diff… only 1 I noticed is squirtle cause of the third cannon.

    • Shady Shariest

      Yup… Not only do they go straight with Digimon… But that they design every mega-evolution so “Meh”-like -_-‘

      • fenix7

        haha ya I was like cool new mega-evolution, then I see them and was like “Meh” haha

  • Christopher Nunes

    I don’t care if it’s bad planning I’m picking Fennkin and Charmander as my starters as I love Fire-Type Pokemon and I adore kitsunes, but Charmander will always remain my favorite Starter Pokemon and will pick him once again.

    Honestly didn’t like Mega Charizard at first that much considering I thought the Mega Form would be more cooler than that but not that I keep on looking at it the more it’s starting to look more kickbutt than I originally thought and the more “dragonic” look really is majestic.

    Hmm… you know what? I dig Mega Charizard, he does look awesome! Mega Blastoise is a close second but sadly Mega Venusaur is third even if it has tattoos on its face and a flower now instead of leaf over its head. They could’ve done something extra for Venusaur.

    • Suicunesol

      I don’t know. Venusaur was a pretty lost cause. A toad with a flower on its back. How do you make that cooler?

      • Christopher Nunes

        It’s toad-like? Now that you mention it…

        Anyway I was thinking maybe darker colors and more of the “venus-flytrap plant” on its back and maybe something more ferocious?

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      Fennekin is a Fennic fox

      • Christopher Nunes

        Fennic? Is that a pun of something? o_0

        • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

          Go learn your fauna.

          • Christopher Nunes

            Oh, that’s what fauna means (went to go check it the meaning of it)… but you do know Kitsune is another word for Fox right? Plus since this is a Japanese game I was remarking the Kitsune bit since Kitsunes are popular in Japan.

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      What you want to put a head dress on Venasaur?

      I’d be fine if they removed the flower but in game it looks nice

    • Steven Higgins

      Same here. With Fennikin, Charmander and Torchic, the Water gym will kick my butt.
      Of course I wish I could get all of them. I wonder if Pokemon Bank will allow me to do that?

      Start new game, choose Fennikin and Charmander, put them and Torchic in the Bank.
      Start new game, choose, Chespin and Bulbasaur, put them in the Bank
      Start new game, choose Froakie and Squirtle, take Fennikin, Bulbasaur, Torchic, Chespin and Charmander out of the Bank.

      Probably not though.

      • Christopher Nunes

        Possible, but I have two 3DSs and I’ve reserved both X and Y. Y is going to be my main version with the boy and X with the girl and I’ll the other Starters on two files (save, delete, new game, save, delete, new game with the intended Starters).

  • Masengan

    Not even half way done with Xillia, next KH ReMix and then Pokemon, I cannot keep up!

    • xAtKx

      Just finished PDF. Got Neptunia MK2 and Victory to do then KH. Then we got Pokemon and throw college in there for the heck of it…I really need to make a backlog list.

      • Christopher Nunes


        • sonicgamer07

          Project DIVA F, I believe.

          • Christopher Nunes

            Ah, I see… I finished that too myself.

    • Rytan

      I haven’t gotten anywhere in Soul Hackers, Project x Zone, Fire Emblem: Awakening or Shin Megami Tensei IV. I doubt I’ll have any of them finished by the time Pokemon comes out, either. Oops.

  • RazeXI

    I dunno why but when I look at megablastoise I wonder if that third cannon isnt breaking his back or something

  • Sergio Briceño

    That mega ring kind of looks like a power ranger morpher. Just saying.

    • Namuro

      Go Go Pokéranger!

      It’d be cool as well, if they have a belt version, and then they can strike a henshin pose!

  • NBXX

    I want to choose the girl, is that weird?

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      Its weird when you keep staring at her thighs yes.

    • Namuro

      It would be weird, if you think it’s weird. Whatever makes you happy man, just go with it.

    • Suicunesol

      Not for you it isn’t, Mr. Pedobear.

      • Syn

        Hhahahahaha, I see what you did there lol

    • Prinnydoom

      The only person it might feel weird for is you……….and professor oak.

  • Steven Higgins

    Wonder if Ash will get a Mega Ring.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      yeah, I also wonder

    • J_Joestar

      This is probably the solution for avoiding giving Pikachu a MegaEvo, Charizard is Ash’s next more popular Pokemon.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        Pikachu won’t mega evo, only raichu is able

        • Steven Higgins

          That;s what he’s saying. Since Pikachu can’t Mega Evolve. They gave it to Ashs next most popular Pokemon.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            I see

      • Steven Higgins

        But Ash always sends all his Pokemon except Pikachu to the lab each arc. Which means, like this time, he would take Charizard out a few seasons into the Kalos arc.
        I don’t really see that happening because it was a long time before he brought Charizard back.
        Although out of the 10 Mega Pokemon revealed so far, Ash only has a Charizard
        And Charizard is in the Kalos Pokedex.

        • J_Joestar

          Well Megas probably wont really show up until Korrina, so it may depend on how fast/slow they move through the region.
          There probably isn’t a need to give it to him that early too, as long as he can use Megazard by the later tournaments.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    I think that if Charizard/Lizardon becomes Fire/Dragon, then it will be very OP amongst another starters, so it becomes imbalance..

    thus, I’m fine with it being still Fire/Flying

    • Sardorim

      No, that MegaChicken is still the most imbalanced!

      Besides, we have Fairy Type now so Dragon has another weakness.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        but, dragon had had many resistances.. fire, water, electric, grass.. so it’s resistant against main starters’ type (fire, water, grass)

        also being dragon, maybe charizard can be able to learn some water moves, some grass moves, and some electric moves, which will be very OP against another starters too.. it can beat water starters easily, etc..

        (excluding the emboar for being able to only learn Scald, and the Grass Knot thing)

    • J_Joestar

      Nah, it is still Fire/Flying, but it now has DROUGHT!
      Move over DW Ninetails!

      • Renaldi Saputra

        that’s why I said I’m fine with it still being Fire/Flying

        • J_Joestar

          mis-read it somehow. Still though, having another Drought Pokemon will likely shake things up still.

  • EtherealEarth

    Wow, that’s a nice Digivice the trainer has there!

  • KrazyBean

    Torchic, Froakie and Bulbasaur. That’s my starter team.

    • Sardorim

      Charmander, Torchic, and Fennekin for me.



  • Sardorim

    Fire/Dragon…. Fire/Dragon…. Fire/Dragon….

    It’s all I want you do be Megazard! Become the great Dragonzard!

    • mike dickson

      spoilier alert hes fire / flying but he has drought so be happy

  • artemisthemp

    Male trainer got screw with Mewtwo

  • J_Joestar

    Mega Ring sequence needs more Epic Posing.

  • Dream

    Well, there goes my childhood.

  • noctis_nox

    My only concern about this is will they make all the Pokemon have mega forms?
    This will definitely ruin the balance if only select Pokemons will have mega forms.

    I am not that up to date with Pokemon info lately so feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      not all.. but all starters might have it..

    • J_Joestar

      Balance (to some degree) should still be possible thanks to the fact you can only use 1 on your team.

  • DanteMasamune

    Sees Mega Charizard
    *squeals like a fangirl*
    “Mega Charizard is still a Fire/Flying type and not a Fire/Dragon!”
    Recalls Mega Ampharos
    ………screw you Game Freak.
