Pokémon X And Pokémon Y Show Off Both Mega Mewtwo Evolutions And Pokémon Genders

By Ishaan . September 13, 2013 . 8:30am

Following magazine reports that Mewtwo will have not one but two Mega Evolutions in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, The Pokémon Company have officially confirmed the news with a trailer that shows off both versions of Mewtwo, as well as the evolved forms of X and Y’s starter Pokémon. Watch the trailer below:



Mewtwo evolves into Mega Mewtwo when you use Mewtonite, which can be obtained in both Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. Depending on which version of the game you have, you’ll end up with either Mega Mewtwo X or Mega Mewtwo Y. The former in particular is interesting, since it adds the Fighting-type element to Mewtwo’s existing Pyshic-type.


Additionally, the trailer also points out that certain Pokémon will have different male and female forms. This includes a brand new Lion Pokémon named Pyroar.


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

    That mega evolution animation is awesome but it also reminds me of something that’s right on the tip of my tongue. The male and female forms make sense if they don’t do it for every new pokemon since only a few animals in the real world look different depending on sex(Can only think of lions atm).

    • SlickRoach

      I too was surprised seeing Pyroar exhibiting sexual dimorphism in it’s genders as well. After Luxray I didn’t think they would do much other than make its mane smaller for the female. Between Pyroar and the cat they went the extra mile to make different genders almost look like different Pokémon all together.

      Oh yeah, sexual dimorphism; best example it’s us, humans xD

      • Symbol de Au

        All you humans look alike to me.

    • Asura

      A bloody ton of animals exhibit sexual dimorphism.

      • Nightmesh

        The only one I could think of are lions. Other then that I don’t know of any. Could you list a few?

    • Suicunesol

      Sexual dimorphism is pretty common in nature. Here–here’s a list:

      Chickens (males have crowns)
      Many, many birds (males have more vibrant plumage)
      Insects (some fireflies, butterflies with more vibrant color wings)
      Frogs (males have croaking sacs or different colors)
      Humans (women have boobs, curves, usually longer hair)
      And there also lots of species where the males are slightly larger or taller than the females.

      In all honesty, there should be a lot more sexual dimorphism in Pokemon, but we know they don’t do it for every Pokemon because of the amount of work. The little differences, like Pikachu’s tail, are enough.


      • Nightmesh

        Ah! The more you know.

      • LightZero

        Thank goodness for human dimorphism :)

  • Armane

    So glad I went with X now, Mewtwo X is pretty much exactly how I thought an evolved form should look, unlike Y, who looks more like an evolved Mew.

    Customisable player characters is something everyone has wanted forever as well. Can’t decide whether to play as the male or female character though. Would be even more difficult if they announced various cosplay outfits.

  • SlickRoach

    Wow, the character customization is vastly deeper than I thought! I pictured only skin color and a few hat and hair options. And dat furfrou looks funky with a fro, gotta get one of those on my team for sure.

    • J_Joestar

      I can imagine them pulling a Gym-Leader Event DLC costumes or something like that.

  • Sentsuizan_93

    Man. I really can’t wait for October 12th….

  • Highasthesky

    You can change outfits…..hmmm….pervert senses tingling….female mc here i come.

  • Elemiel

    Pyroar is beautiful, now to decide whether to name him Aslan or Mufasa.

    • Savage Sui ♥

      My male Pyroar shall be Griever :3 My female… weeell, I’m not not sure what I’d name the female version yet, lol.

    • J_Joestar

      Lambert, in a team of Mareep.

    • Sardorim

      Name him Mufasa so you can name his son Simba and than Simba’s daughter as Kiara.

      Though watch out for someone’s Kovu on Wifi as he may run off with Kiara which will make Simba go into a Rage.

    • Kai2591

      off-topic: say, who’s the character in your display picture? and where from?

  • AuraGuyChris

    Mewtwo grows muscles? Uh, sure. If you can call those thick arms muscles…

    • Ferrick

      he lifts

  • Tonton Ramos

    This will be difficult for Mewtwo to return in SSB4. I mean who should we pic X or Y? what will be the final smash!

    • J_Joestar

      Looks like Lucario has a stronger chance to stay then lol.

    • Justin S Shields

      Well I would bet Y form. It’s closer to the original, and I already have him on Brawl. I hacked Brawl to bring Mewtwo back, over Wario with a module, and there was a Mega Mewtwo Y character model for it. It’s awesome.

  • XypherCode

    I really like the concept of different appearances depending on gender. Fits perfectly for Lion type Pokemon. Maybe down the line they’ll make a Rooster and Hen Pokemon. :))

  • The 15ᵗʰ Angel

    So instead of colors and gems we are now at chromosomes.

    • At first I thought this was related to the whole 3D thing X, Y, and Z. But with all of these different evolution forms it must be chromosomes. o-O

    • Kai2591

      oh hey you’re right, they’re going with that theme…didn’t notice the connection.

  • Savage Sui ♥

    This new Mega evolution for Mewtwo definitely looks a lot manlier than the other :3 So glad that I decided I’m getting Pokemon X first awhile ago~ ^w^ lol.

    • Justin S Shields

      What’s hilarious is that both Mega Mewtwo have higher Atk than Machamp, yet one has twigs for arms and Machamp’s like a fountain of muscle XD

  • DrakeClawfang

    well, looks like I’m getting X Version so I can have a proper Mewtwo power-up.

    • I’m actually sad that I won’t be getting Mega Mewtwo Y, as I already decided I was getting X long before. But with that said, I am happy with Mega Mewtwo X as he is quite impressive.

  • isotrex

    Mega Mewtwo Y for me. :D

    • Learii

      and mega mewtwo X for me

  • Learii

    I wish I can catch Garchom in pokemon X /Y

  • JNT

    Mega Garchomp

    • J_Joestar

      New Tier above Ubers
      MegaGarchomp Tier.

  • Christopher Nunes

    Man, it’s a good thing I’m getting both X and Y version, but seriously I prefer the X version of Mega Mewtwo more than Y version and the Y version is going to be my main because of the Legendary Pokemon which I vastly prefer over the stag one.

    Though a Psychic/Fighting-Type Mewtwo? How would that work out? Since Mewtwo is Fighting-Type in that one he has an advantage over Dark-Type Pokemon and loses his weakness to them because of it but he gains the weakness to Flying-Type attacks now. Hmm…

    • AverageGamers

      A Psychic/Fighting is not new, considering we already have Meditite/Medicham & Gallade (which also has a Psychic/Fairy counterpart in Gardevoir)… I personally find the Medi easy to beat, while Gallade quite difficult. In the end I think the stats and moveset of MewTwo will determine its ability, then again… this is Mega Evo, so it only occurs in battle :)

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    So with this, we will see the biggest fight of all time. The battle of Mewbuu vs Mewgeta. O_o

  • Makapixel

    New Pokemon feels like the Star Wars Prequels. A whole bunch of new, clean and fresh out of the box plastic stuff. All the pokemon look freshly waxed and in pristine condition.

    As opposed to the lived in, gritty, and dusty Pokemon games of old. This new pokemon was made for the tumblr generation.

    Also how hard is it to take the evolution of a Pokemon and just make it look like a cooler version of the animal prior. I miss the days where you could rely on a turtle pokemon to reach it’s final evolution and still resemble a freaking turtle!

    It’s so stupid that they keep putting Pokemon on two legs and making them resemble humans. I wish they would knock off the cute anime eye looks and moe mouths. I prefer the look and style of the older Pokemon. They look like animals with animal features.

    New Pokemon sucks balls. Ken Sugimori is a hack now.

    I wish they would go back to the old style but keep all the technological advancements that have been made so far. Never going to happen though.

  • Helepythia

    Anyone else see “Pyshic” type? Now, I’m not too much in the know with Pokemon anymore, but I’m guessing that’s a typo rather than a new type right?

  • Vash bane

    eh? two different mewtwo forms? oh well like its going to change my mind finally figured out which one to get XD

    that fire fox….stands on two feet oh my looks like torchic has some competition
