Earlier in the year, a special episode of the Pokémon anime, titled Pokémon XY: The Strongest Mega Evolution Special I, was aired. It focused on Mega Evolution and featured a new trainer named Alan.


The show is actually part of an ongoing series of specials, with episode 2 recently revealed in Japan, and episode 1 confirmed for airing in the U.S. on Cartoon Network.


Serebii.net reports that Pokémon: Mega Evolution Special I will air in the U.S. on May 31st at 8 am. The episode’s release was confirmed by a Cartoon Network (Pacific) TV schedule.

    Ooo. I shall watch. I need to catch up on X/Y. Pokemon is one series I don’t mind bouncing back from English to Japanese.

  • Spirit Macardi

    Is this a spin-off to Ash’s adventures, or self-contained like Pokemon Origins?

    • axelrod

      It’s a Spin-off. They mention Ash within the first few minutes of the special.

  • Otoya

    This episode is worth watching, very epic!

    • AuraGuyChris

      Epic, but with flat characters and more blatant Charizard worship, as if all of that wasn’t enough during the filler arc in BW.

  • shuyai

    with all the mega this mega that but where the hell is mega pikachu?

    the best i got is this when i google it

    • DragKudo

      I’d hate nintendo if they just forgot about Raichu. I heard Pikachu was already good with light ball

      • 하세요

        Well yeah that’s the “but seriously” reason why Mega Pikachu would be utterly stupid as Light Ball Pika would be eons better than whatever Mega Pikachu would get stat-wise.

        Unless they fuck with everyone and give him Arceus level status.

        • God

          Always hated the light ball, it made him stronger than Raichu, and i love Raichu.

        • Akemi Homura

          And that’s why we’ll likely never see mega Raichu, or mega Pikachu, as sad as that makes me. Unless they decide to make a single mega stone and mega evo for the whole Pikachu line.. but that’d just be weird.

          Also, I can see mega Pikachu outclassing Light Ball Pikachu, as long as it got a boost in speed as well as its attacking stats.

  • kliskur

    For the love of Zapdos… I want mega feraligatr.. My first Pokemon ever..

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery
