Metagross, Diancie and Sableye aren’t the only Pokémon getting new Mega Evolutions—in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, all three starter Pokémon will have Mega Evolutions as well.


You’ve probably already seen Mega Blaziken, but we haven’t seen Mega Sceptile and Mega Swampert before. Here’s a look at their illustrations for the new game:

    So, are these official pictures from Ken Sugimori?

    • KrazyBean

      Yes. They’re from the official website.

  • fyi1191

    They look a bit cuter?

  • JustThisOne

    Oh jeez… I.. hadn’t noticed this before, but Mega Sceptile is a christmas tree. I think I never looked closely enough, but now that I see the sparkles, they look like christmas lights. He’s even got the bulbs and everything.

  • TheAstralTraveller

    It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

  • KrazyBean

    I’m gonna be rocking Treeko this time. I’ve chosen Torchic and Mudkip WAAAAAAAAAY too many times…this will actually be the first time I’ve chosen a grass starter. Plus Grass/Dragon sounds like a pretty cool type to play with when Sceptile Mega Evolves.

    Gonna give it Leaf Blade, Dragon Claw, Rock Slide and Earthquake.

    • “Rocking Treeko.”

      Rocking Tree.

      Rockin’ Tree.

      Mega Sceptile looks like a Christmas Tree…


  • TheGioG

    Lord have mercy, my favorite Grass-type starter is really getting into the Christmas-in-July spirit!

    • 10/10

    • Nickie

      Dude (or dudette), seriously, that’s the first thing I thought of when I saw that to. XD

    • Seizui

      If only stars were able to be given. You would get so many for that post.

    • Espoir

      For a moment as I was scrolling down, the page only loaded his tail. Christmas tree was the first thing that popped in my head -_-

    • Land of Green Pasture

      he’s sayin'”JINGLE F-IN BELL MOTHAFACKA”

  • Swampert on that Sonic Boom Knuckles weight routine.

  • Mika Moreno

    I hate the way Mega Swampert looks… Mega Sceptile and Blaziken look awesome though

    • Seizui

      That.. that is because you don’t… *drops a barbell* lift, Brah!

  • bael

    mega blaziken deserves a spot on the roster of the next mario strikers game

  • And then came the Mega Sceptile Christmas fanart.

    • Aemette

      THANK YOU! I was thinking the exact same thing. Tis the season to be… (insert Pokemon Christmas pun here). But scrolling further down it seems as though others beat me to it.. :P

      • raygunner659

        I think Jolly natured still works in a Pokemon and Christmas context XD Though I don’t know what that’ll do for Sceptiles

        • Princess_Eevee9

          It’s okay Sceptile can be a pure Physical Attacker and moreso due to the Mega Evo~

  • AnotherVistor02

    Mega Sceptile: My drill(tail) shall pierce the…!

    And them shiny sparkles in all illustrations :P

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      Nickname him Kamina

    • BalmungX

      Now i want a Tail Drill Attack for Mega Sceptile

  • Jettythesunfish

    Who says the King of the Forest can’t be festive?

  • Seizui

    Oh man! Oh man! Oh man! I think I found it! I found the secret to Mega Swampert’s MegaEvolution!

  • Armageddon

    Here i thought they were cool before but now awesome XD.

  • 3PointDecoupage

    All the people talking about christmas sceptile are missing something. It also has jingle bells on its back.

  • Princess_Eevee9

    Looks like Abomasnow’s got some competition from Mega Gecko there.

  • I swear I never saw the Christmas tree on Mega Sceptile before xD

    • Vash bane

      ….. lol cant un-see

  • Steven Higgins

    So, If Mega Blaziken is Super Ultra Mega Chicken, is Mega Sceptile Magic Sparkle Christmas Dragon? And what does that make Mega Swampert? Hyper Steroid Wrestle Toad?

  • DeadLineDance

    Mega Swampert all the way; Water/Ground is a deadly combination in-game, and I find his Mega design more hilarious than tragic.

  • Lloyd Christmas

    Going to end up doing what I always did back in the Gen I-III days… and start the game with all three starters. Oh, and Salamance. Always gotta have a Salamance.

    • Tenabrus

      pokenoob here; how the heck did you do that?

      • Jonathan Tse

        he gets two copies of the game (or asks a buddy) and trades the starters to one of the copies.

    • glenngunnerzero

      You can also just GTS trade for them.

  • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

    Does Mega Sceptile have a Christmas Tree for a tail~?

  • Kroz

    Christmas don’t stop for Sceptile!

  • The_Superior_Spider-Mon

    Mega Swampert is pretty much like Knuckles (from Sonic BOOM) on steroids.

  • Deidara19

    Odds are that I’m going to go with mega swampert (mudkip) because I never really cared for sceptile and my brother is going to go with blaziken. Plus I kinda like his mega the best for some reason lol,

    But I’m also getting a real good feeling that we’ll get some changes to Latios and Latias as well. Either new primal forms or mega evos.

    • Jadfish

      “and my brother is going to go with blaziken”

      I did the exact same thing! When me and my brother were kids, when a new pokemon game came out we bought it simultaenously. Then it was a cold war the next couple of hours where we tried to spy at the other ones gameboy to see which starter pokemon the other chose, so that we could counterpick it

  • Dianatos

    All we need to do now is mount Xerneas’ head onto Mega Sceptile’s tail and the holidays will be set!

  • Namuro

    That Swampert’s water jet-punch looks pretty damn cool!

  • Jadfish

    Swampert just keeps being the best. He was cool before, but then he decided to start liftin’

  • Guest

    Mega Sceptile with dat Christmas Tree tail

  • DeathkaiserG

    For some reason, the mega hoenn starters reminds me of the hitmon family.. Mega Swampert to Hitmonchan, Mega Blaziken to Hitmonlee and Mega Sceptile to Hitmontop…

    Punch, Kick and Drill…to be exact..

  • triablos

    1.mega swampert (he looks awesome as hell)

    2. Mega sceptile (sceptile looked cool, mega looks even better)

    3. Mega blaziken (hey guys I’m really just a blaziken, but I grew longer hair)

    Ironic considering that the order is reversed when talking about the normal versions.

  • Yan Zhao

    Dat Christmas tree tail.

    • Snorlaxation

      Exactly what I was thinking.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Mega Sceptile <3

  • Snorlaxation

    I’m really liking their art stylesfor this game, but it’s also fun to see just how much they’ve all changed too (not just in their mega forms). I already got my special Torchic and raised it, so I don’t think I’ll pick it this time. I’m actually pretty partial to grass types, so Treeko is a likely option. However, I’ve never trained a Mudkip before… and I do like them.

    Maybe this time that’s what I’ll go with.

  • Snorlaxation

    You just know, next Christmas, Serebeii is going to use mega Sceptile for their banner.

  • ShadowDivz

    If i wasn’t already thinking christmas tree. I sure as hell am now.

  • J_Joestar

    Since everybody and their uncle is going with the christmas thing already i’ll go with…

    I wanna Mega Evolve Sceptile by going…

  • mike dickson

    I love swampert’s mega im gald he went with P90X

  • TerrenceEncore Jones

    I hope Mega Evolutions don’t replace regular evolutions. Some the megas I have seen would have been great evolutions.
