Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will feature a Mega Evolution for Metagross, the latest issue of CoroCoro magazine reveals. (Thanks, Anime News Network)


Mega Metagross will be used by Steven, who evolves the Pokémon using the Mega Brooch. CoroCoro also hints that there are different Pokémon in Hoenn than before in the two remakes.


Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are scheduled for release this November.

  • Well, at least Dark hits the thing now. That would have been baaaaad news otherwise. It’s harder to hit than a tractor tire.

  • sakanaとkoeda


    I hope he kicks my ass with a fully invested team. That would be a nice challenge.

  • Kornelious

    Gruda! Is that you?…Again?

  • DeAndre Atchison

    All of my feels.
    Aggron will been replaced by metagross as my mega now

    He has 4 floating arms to meteor mash you even more now

  • Egil

    different pokemon in hoenn?Does that mean they will reveal the rest of kalos region pokemon?

    • Brandonmkii

      more likely that we’ll be seeing mons from gens 4-6 in Hoenn

  • SwiggitySwag

    Mega Slaking please.

    • lozffvii

      Mega Slacking: all 100 bonus base stat points go into ATK, but it has ‘Can’t be Bothered’ as an ability.
      ‘Can’t be Bothered’ makes it so that Mega Slacking can only attack once every five turns.

    • celery

      It would be the most broken thing in existence, so I’m saying this as a joke, but if it had Parental Bond, imagine Norman, your father, using that against you.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    The sweeping Tank has gotten stronger oh…ohhh no…. if it has levitate we are doooooomed desire. Whats things thing about different pokemon? are they adding more pokemon to the kalos dex?

  • Steven Higgins

    Different Pokemon in Hoenn? So I guess that means Pokemon form other regions like Johto and Kanto.

    • Armyofoneix

      johto and kanto pokemon were in rse

      • Steven Higgins

        Really? I thought it was only Hoenn Pokemon because they were trying a new start. It[‘s been so long since I played I pretty much forgot everything

  • Renaldi Saputra

    the only difference I see is only it had a… spike?

    • triablos

      It looks like its legs have turned into arms

  • 하세요

    Hope it turns out good. Gen 6’s Steel type changes nerfed the crap out of Metagross.

  • Tweetums

    Not a big fan of the “add spikes” mind-set that they have with some of the mega evolutions, mut other than that, I like it~~

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      the spike wasnt needed

  • riceisnice

    How come only the strong pokemon are getting stronger?

    What about my poor Farfetch’d!

    • PreyMantis

      Right? At least give evolutions to those that don’t evolve

    • Huge hulking bird that hits people with a giant uprooted tree. I can just imagine it now.

    • celery

      Mawile, Manctric, Medicham, Pinsir, Kangaskhan…there are a lot of Pokemon that weren’t very good at all to begin with who got Megas that really, really helped them out. A lot of the starters weren’t even that viable competitively until they received Megas.

      Metagross is the Champion’s ace, and it gained 2 weaknesses this gen. It deserves a Mega, too.

  • Kami nii


  • Jordan Ortiz

    So Metagross is now sitting on a Metang as a mega, cant wait for Mega Magnezone then.

  • PreyMantis

    Mega Breloom, please.

  • katzedan

    still waiting for Mega Arcanine, Meganium, Feraligatr, Typhlosion, Eeveelution, Miltank and Audino :(

  • DeadLineDance

    Well, the Champion probably ought to have one… but MegaMetagross is slightly uninspired…

  • ShinNeoGranzon

    YEEESSS!!! (I’m to lazy to add several more of each letter and more !, so just imagine them). That is all.

  • Nero San

    Mega Milotic would be the manliest pokemon ever.

  • Altin

    Oh f*ck yeah. All I need now is a Mega Flygon!

  • raygunner659

    Looks sort of like a Metang with a golden X and extra arms with claws. I suppose it could be worse. It’ll probably look awesomer in game, when it’s floating menacingly, arms waiting to pummel the heck out of everyone.

    • GOLD

      metagross ALWAYS looked like metang with extra arms and an x

      • raygunner659

        Yeah, but now it’s floating like one too. And that spike in the bottom is just making it look more like Metang’s nose.

        • AuraGuyChris

          Metagross always floated during its attack animations in the GCN and Wii Pokemon games.

  • Imbarra

    getting goosebumps to the this awesome mega evolution… MOOOOAAAAR

  • Kroz

    Everyone saw this coming, next mega flygon

  • That guy


    • Vash bane

      one of my early favorite dragon types. that would be cool

      • God

        Early? Anyways, i’m hoping for a mega Dragonite, the original dragon pokemon.

  • AoNoise

    I’m wondering what the shiny Mega-form will look like. The golden X was kind of it’s thing.

    Also. YASSSSS.

  • D. Collins

    Still waiting on Mega Electrode….

    • Paul Rodriguez

      How big would he be? He’s already big.

      • D. Collins

        I dont think he would get bigger. I think he would just Implode and become a ball of Nuclear energy.

        • God

          That idea has my seal of approval.

    • He would probably look like an upside down Master Ball. That would be cool.

    • SlickRoach

      Think of the base speed, think of IT!!! It’d make Ninjask look like a Munchlax!

  • Traveler

    One generation way but what heck mega drapion, the megas need more walls imo

  • Paul Rodriguez

    It always baffles me how Pokemon can allow humans boss them around. A lot have size, intelligence, and power.

    • I know. Arceus is like the Pokémon world equivalent of god, yet he follows the commands of some teenagers.

      • AuraGuyChris


        • God

          That’s what we gods do, leave the fate of worlds to bunch of unevolved monkeys and laugh at the results.

    • God

      That always bothered me… How did humans manage to become the dominant species in a world full of wild, lethal animals, when their only chance of survival lies in a highly technological device that captures said animals?

  • Heldronus

    I wonder if Steven or Wallace is going to be champion this time around.

    • celery

      The scan refers to Steven as the Champion. It also has pictures of Sydney and Phoebe of the Elite Four (so hopefully we’ll get better images of them soon), and a handful of the Gym Leaders.

  • dragoon_slayer12

    I’m happy he’s mega evolving. He’s always been one of my favorite Pokémon since I first seen him

  • PotatoPower

    steven looks too boss

  • Guest

    I guessing the Unova pokemon are the only ones not to have any Mega Evolution forms. And Diancie is literally the only Kalos pokemon to have one.

  • If mega metagross isn’t OP I’m gonna be PO

  • Darkwing7


    • God

      Name of the anime?

  • Seeing that Gardevoir has her Mega evolution in X & Y. I wouldn’t be surprised if Gallade gets Mega in this new installment :)

    • Vash bane

      that …would be totally awesome.
      (that reminds me I need to breed one in X/Y…lets keep which version I have ominous lol)

  • The_Superior_Spider-Mon

    I;m hoping that each Elite Four have a Mega Pokemon in their team.

  • Touma

    cross your fingers for the next one being shiny flygon >__<

  • Gigaknight

    A bit disappointed by what I see of Mega Metagross’ design, here. It looks like Sugimori’s had something against opposable thumbs in his designs, lately. (See Pangoro and Beartic, and compare them to Ursaring.)

    This change, in my eyes, gives them a more bestial appearance–appearing less sentient/capable of intelligence. I think that’s the last thing you’d think of Metagross–not to speak of whatever’s supposed to be above it in terms of evolution.

    • Aaron K Stone

      Who said Sugimori designed it?

      • Gigaknight

        That is an assumption on my part, yes, but also an inference. I don’t think there’s a single game in the main series that he did not serve as Pokemon designer for–so says Bulbapedia, at least. If he served as such for B/W and X/Y, I think it’s reasonable to believe that he also designed these latest Mega forms we will see in OR/AS.
