Pokemon Omega Ruby And Alpha Sapphire Have A Shiny Beldum, More Mega Evolutions

By Ishaan . August 8, 2014 . 12:50am

Japan’s CoroCoro magazine has revealed more Mega Evolved Pokémon that will be present in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. (Thanks, Serebii.net and @chisa_suiran)


One of these Pokémon is Mega Altaria, who is a Dragon/Fairy-type with the Pixilate ability. Another is Mega Lopunny (Normal/Fighting-type) with Scrappy. Finally, you have Mega Salamence with the Aerilate ability.


Also available in the game is a Shiny Beldum, which comes holding its Mega Evolution stone. It looks like Steven won’t be the only one with a Mega Metagross.


Contests have been elaborated upon a little as well. A character in the game named Lucia gives you special clothes for participating in Pokémon Contests.


CoroCoro also reveals that the cosplaying Pikachu in the game get special moves depending on which outfit you dress them up in for Contests. Pikachu Rock Star gets Meteor Smash, Pikachu Ph.D. gets Electric Terrain, Pikachu Pop Star gets Draining Kiss, Pikachu Belle gets Icicle Crash, and finally, Pikachu Libre gets Flying Press.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    Lopunny is sausage
    Salamence is weird mutant creature symbolizing a starwars symbol (?)
    Altaria is a fat bird with a massive wad of soft cotton

    Disappointed with mega evo design this time

    • Notquitesure?

      I haven’t cared for most mega evolutions but like these three in particular.


      I want to like Mega Altaria, but it is maybe a little too fluffy. Mostly it’s the hat-esque fluffball on it’s head that I dislike the most.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        It’s too fat, too

    • jugss

      Casuals Meh….Cute Pokemon with worthless stats sucks.

    • Princess_Eevee9

      Like no seriously you are off base with that. These designs are simple and cute. But to each their own.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        simple and cute, well yes, but it doesn’t match with what they are…
        like, example, salamence is a dragon, how can be it became a weird mutant thingy like that..
        altaria became fatty and it just made things become ugly while the previous form were much better

        • kao

          Lopunny’s mega seemed really unnecessary, if they weren’t trying to hype the whole mega evolution thing then it would’ve just been a cross-gen evolution.

          But I guess they wont be making those anymore, I really liked electivire/magmortar and mamoswine(and the other evoltions) in gen 4.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            electrivire and magmortar were badass one indeed, I like them to be honest.

          • Miss_Madness

            This technically isn’t even from a new gen just a remake with add features. Gen 7 will probably be were the cross gen evolution actually pop up.

          • kao

            i hope, but chances are that they’re just gonna stick to megas(and maybe a new eevee or something..)

          • Miss_Madness

            The chances are pretty vague at this point. Since we don’t have any clue what gen 7 will bring.So it could go the way you think, the way I think or something else entirely.

            There could be loads of new pokemon and cross gen evos and a few mega evolutions. I say a few because they already got the bulk that they wanted in Gen 6.

          • kao

            yeah, it seems like they focused so much on working on the mega evo’s in XY that they didn’t make much of the actual new pokemon for gen 6.

            If you take out all the poke’s that were from previous gens in XY there was that much. ruby and sapphire for example had a bunch of new exclusives in each area without resorting to showing the old poke’s from johto and kanto, that’s one of the main reasons why it’s was my favorite gen.

        • Princess_Eevee9

          Altaria is an enormous cloud dragon. Clouds are fat. Not seeing a difference. But to each their own. Salamence resembles a mecha dragon which is cool it’s not overly drastic.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            Mega salamence? Mecha dragon? Cool?
            What the…..
            Since when salamence is a mecha?

            Ah you’re too defending pokemon, saying everything they designed is cool
            Be honest to yourself

  • tturtlejosh

    Man Lopunny doesn’t look hot in that mega evolution

    • Renaldi Saputra

      But it looks tasty lol
      Demm sausage… I’m hungry

  • Akemi Homura

    Where’s my Mega Flygon Gamefreak?

    • Princess_Eevee9

      Secret character I bet. Don’t worry!

    • BalmungX

      No man after what they did to salamence(UFO/Croissant Wings) I don’t want more mega flygon

  • Egil

    Is it just me or the new girl introduced looks like lana from hyrule warriors?

    • DeadLineDance

      Oh shoot. I see it.

  • Oh god! Those damned contests are back…

    • Princess_Eevee9

      You mean hel lyes contests are back. That means May can be back in the Anime.

      • I don’t care. I never touched the contests in the game and they were the worst thing to happen to the anime imo. Even though May is my favourite female lead, the contests were just a waste of time and didn’t amount to anything. Honestly, they could do a 26 episode season for each generation and get all the proper stuff in it no problem. Just look at Pokémon Origins for example. And many fans believe that to be the best thing the anime has done in years.

        • Princess_Eevee9

          Glad you brought up Pokémon Origins because it was the stupidest thing they did. 4 episode special that only catered to Genwumners. I wanted Pokémon Origins to hopefully follow in the footsteps of the Adventures Manga and do something refreshing but they didn’t. They had a lot of good ideas but was poorly executed. And are you high you ask anybody what their favorite part about the Hoenn and Sinnoh Saga and they’d say Contests and Ash doing the Battle Frontier because it was new and May made it a badass ordeal because it was like watching Ash being a beginning trainer from the first Season but better because she was smarter. I’m sorry you didn’t like it but don’t deny that it made the quality of the series better. Please.

          • Spider-Man

            My favorite part of Hoenn and Sinnoh weren’t the contests, that’s for sure. I enjoyed the Pokemon Leagues for each season. Game wise contests are fun. But in the anime they were a drag to sit through.

            Origins was good, but was too rushed. The whole Mega evolution thing was pretty awful. Though the tone of the series was honestly much more appealing that what’s been shown in the regular series.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            Origin was only a nostalgia maker for those who played the game, it’s a mediocre one…

          • But that was the point of Pokémon Origins, wasn’t it? You do have a point, though, that it had potential and wasted it. My favourite part of any saga is always the battles and that’s probably why I honestly feel the Contests were a waste of time and rather boring. “Who cares about showing off your Pokemon and just fight.” That’s my attitude towards contests. Not at the beginning and I did rather enjoy the Battle Frontier, but that’s when I started getting over the contests. By the time Dawn took over for May, I was sick of them.

          • Princess_Eevee9

            Late reply sorry. I agree with you on that front. When Dawn came in she was just basically May 2.0 who sucked more. What should’ve happened was them taking the Super Contests route and reinventing the Contests. Now we’ll never know because they’ve dropped them all together. Honestly was excited to hear about Serena wanting to follow in her mother’s footsteps but they have done nothing on that front.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          the contest are just an unnecessary fillers for real
          except for those who enjoy it.
          But, ah, pokemon is 95% fillers
          the 5% one were only fighting gym leader and entering battle frontier

      • AuraGuyChris

        It means NOTHING for the anime. Contests are nonexistent in Kalos.

  • How comfortable would it be to use Mega Altaria as a pillow? :D

    • Princess_Eevee9


  • Vash bane

    you know…I went to a pokemon like forum just now and…I already see players asking/trading for swablu’s and bagons …no love for buneary lol

    • Princess_Eevee9


  • CptPokerface

    Hm..I actually like Lopunny’s mega form. Looks better suited for battle ( and for it’s fighting type). Sometimes, a bunny has to throw down and suggestive poses just won’t cut it.

    • Princess_Eevee9

      Can’t wait to see Team Charm now have Mega Evos and wait so do Team A.C.T. I’m just reaching but who knows. I’M most excited abut Mega Lopunny!

      • CptPokerface

        Yeah screw all this sausage talk. All its doing is making me hungry.

  • KuroNathan

    Altaria and salamence got a lot scarier with their pixilate and aerilate. This makes their returns 198 bp moves. In comparison their outrage is 180 bp, dragon claw 120 bp.

    Altaria also has access to the much coveted hyper voice move. With pixilate this boosts it up to bp 175, way higher then dragon pulse (120 bp) and Moonblast (135 bp)

    • DeadLineDance

      If the stats are right, the most maligned of Dragons may be about to become the most broken. ph34r the Fluffball!

  • Ecchitori

    Mega Salamence coming to Ubers..

    • Princess_Eevee9

      Mega Salamence banned from Ubers. XD

  • Princess_Eevee9

    Feel like they fucked Mega Lopunny over with her ability but it could’ve been worse. Unless they give Bunaery the ability to get Close Combat and stuff to nail Mega Gengar…hmmm Oh wait I forgot about High Jump Kick. Whelp there goes Aegislash too.

    Waaaaait I’m overlooking that CONTESTS ARE BACK FUCK YEEEEES! Hopefully wroth online capabilities too. And Shiny Beldum!

    • FivePointedTheStar

      Not even close. Scrappy allows Normal and Fighting moves to hit Ghost types. Guess what? Lopunny is Normal/Fighting.

  • Nagi

    mmm i liked a slutty lopunny more :X
    salamence is a missile?
    altaria looks perfect (been wondering what is dragon about her?)
    Mega metagross is sort of meh feel like he should be the missile or his legs are backwards
    and finally i hope for a mega wiggly :<

    • Princess_Eevee9

      No Mega Wigglytuff for you for dissin’the perfect Mega Lopunny. Xp

      • Nagi

        hey atleast i didnt say she was sausage fighter (which is actually visible) :P

        • Princess_Eevee9

          Oh my.

    • Spider-Man

      I too prefer sluttly Lopunny.
      Salamence had higher ambitions, he wanted to fly into space so he became a space ship.
      Altaria was always silly.
      Mega Metagross wanted a beard, and he damn well got one.
      I don’t want you to get Mega Wigglytuff.


      • Nagi

        that salamence tho.
        so bm :P

  • kao

    Altaria looks puffier and lopuny looks like it got a fur trim but man…poor salamence, what did they do to you?

    • ネオフォトン ~ Neo

      Agreed. That design is just way too ridiculous.

      • kao

        Yeah, it looks like it went anorexic while the moon shaped wings make it look like some bizarre kite ufo…

        • ネオフォトン ~ Neo

          I can’t take it seriously when it looks like a kite/UFO…

    • Steven Higgins

      Huh, I only see Altaria here. Oh, you have to click the link. ok.

  • Traveler

    Should be very good fly in altaria now, first class flight.

  • kao

    Mega lopuny better have some decent stats, or else it’ll probably be the lamest and weakest mega evolution ever.

    Aerialate and pixelate are cool but scrappy? Why scrappy? Mawile got a broken pure power and kangahkhan got parental bond. There are so many better abilties they could’ve givin it.

    • zferolie

      Scrappy is pretty damn useful against ghosts, and being a normal/fighting being able to slam ghosts like mega Sableye and mega Gengar will be a blessing

      • kao

        now that i think about it, with scrappy it can also counter aegislash as well.

        not bad but i guess i just wanted to see an ability that’s good all around instead of ghost situational.

        • OutlawStar26ep

          Scrappy is pretty much one of the best abilities for a normal/fighting pokemon. The only pokemon that resist those 2 types are ghost and scrappy solves that problem. So now Lopuuny can run Hi Jump Kick & Return and have 2 slots to support the team like she normally does but now she is able to fight back!

          • zferolie

            Yeah scrappy means Lopunny gets perfect coverage with it’s 2 stabs. Plus, you can run drain punch (move tutor from gen 5) to give yourself a powerful healing move as well. With Ice punch and Thunder punch filling it out, she can hit almost 500 pokemon SE, and the only pokemon she can’t touch is shedinja

          • kao

            I think most people are just gonna go for the high jump kick, the power up punch + drain punch moves are better for bulky types like conkledurr.

            Ice punch is has nice a type coverage though..

          • zferolie

            i run drain punch on my Mega Medicham as well, I dislike the risk of missing and killing myself. Plus it pretty much heals most damage it takes and has saved my butt

          • kao

            yeah, I guess without scrappy everyone with a ghost on team would just switch out and set up.

            And the return + hi jump kick stabs are pretty obvious choices while most people will teach it the fakeout egg move as a staple, I don’t know which other support move would be better to use after that(probably magic bounce, healing wish? idk).

    • Quizler

      If we’re lucky Lopunny will get Hi Jump Kick as a new breeding or tutor move, THEN it’s on.

      • kao

        Someone pointed out to me on the article that lopunny’s movepool will be updated with hi jump kick(it’s already confirmed).

        I was hoping for close combat instead but this is good too, right?

        • Quizler

          Heck yeah, It has more base power than Close combat, and almost never misses for me.

          • kao

            well, my luck is horrible. At times I don’t even trust 95% accuracy moves.

  • NintendoPSXTheSecond

    Oh man I’m loving these abilities for Salamence and Altaria! Might have to start breeding now…
    Also WOW I can already see all the people using Pikachu Libre and Pikachu Belle competitively. This gonna be fun.

  • DeadLineDance

    Wait, why is Mega Lopunny in ORAS when she was a FOURTH generation Pokemon?! Are they basically confirming that they’re sticking “newer” Pokemon in Hoenn this time around?

    • Raccoon Child

      … ‘She’? My male Lopunny dislikes this comment.

      • AuraGuyChris


        • Raccoon Child

          Took me a while to get your comment. Pervert.

      • DeadLineDance

        I can’t help but assign genders to Pokemon species.
        Also, my male Gardevoir named Bridget sympathizes.

        • Raccoon Child

          Heh, fitting. Not entirely related but I named my male Liepard ‘Violette’ just for the heck of it.

    • s07195

      Didn’t they say something to that effect earlier?

      • DeadLineDance

        I don’t know, did they? (This is honestly the first I’ve heard of it.)

  • cameron forsyth

    well those weeks spent getting a shiny beldum feel like a damn waste now, thanks game freak…

    • ネオフォトン ~ Neo

      I wound up with a shiny Beldum on my first batch of Beldum eggs and didn’t even notice it until I was on to about my 3rd or so batch. Shame the IVs weren’t the best, but they were still decent to make it viable for use!

      Still, that must be irritating to spend all that time to see they’re handing one out to everyone.

      • cameron forsyth

        well the IV’s will never be that great when breeding with a legit Ditto. the most annoying thing is that i prepared it solely for playing omega ruby. i just hope they don’t start giving out shiny mudkips, and shiny treekos

        • ネオフォトン ~ Neo

          Chain breeding makes it a lot easier a la Destiny Knot, and thanks to the Friend Safari ensuring at least two perfect IVs. I just wound up with it on an initial parent who had less than desirable IVs instead of swapping out for a new one.

          I don’t think they’ll go that far, however. It’s a given they’ll at least give players the mega stones for their respective starter via story.

    • FivePointedTheStar

      To be fair, although the Beldum will be shiny, it says nothing about whether the nature and IVs or said Beldum are random. You could end up with a bad nature and bad IVs.

  • kao

    sheesh, I can already see the intimidate + mega evolution combo thing going on again here with salamence.

    And this version looks like it’ll have way better speed stats, but now with aerialate it’ll be an instant uber.

  • ネオフォトン ~ Neo

    I’m just gonna leave this here.

    • FFmax

      Croissant wings lol.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      lol I’m hungry

      • Penguin

        me too

    • Renaldi Saputra


  • Christopher C

    Anyone else betting the shiny beldum is the one Steven gives you in Mossdeep?

  • I don’t think anyone’s mentioned this, but I really enjoy the (player) costume changes for the contest. I hope they expand on the contest… I mean, I don’t know HOW since I never played the original, but that was also because it didn’t really feel accessible to me. Maybe that’s something…?

    At this point, I wouldn’t be surprised if every one of the major dragon Pokemon gets a Mega evolution eventually. Weren’t they supposed to support Pokemon who were rarely used, too? Not just the super popular ones that everyone uses anyways?

    • s07195

      Well, there is Lopunny. Altaria doesn’t count as a major dragon Pokemon, I’d say. >.>

      • True, true. But I was more referring to Salamence with that major dragon comment. (And Garchomp.)

        Lopunny is a less-used Pokemon (as is Altaria), but I was kind of thinking like … the ones that need help to be even semi-useful. Like Delcatty. Or Mightyena lol

        • s07195

          Mega Castform. 0_0
          Mega Kecleon. 0_0
          Primal Relicanth. 0_0
          Mega Milotic. 0_0
          Mega Gorebyss. 0_0
          Mega Pelipper. XDD.

  • Yan Zhao

    Idols in a pokemon game? lol. The west’s first step for an idolmaster game :3

    These new mega evolution designs are godawful, especially Salamence.

    • DyLaN

      Sry, but the first step for idol sim is done by HDN PP ady.

  • NightzeroAX

    These designs are horrible especially Mega Metagross and Salamence. WTF is Salamence.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      lopunny is also bad but tasty, a chain of sausage

    • mike dickson

      mega salamence is literally a boomerang

  • Helios373

    I dont care if mega salamence is going to be uber, Salamence is my favorite pokemon and I will wreck the hell out of everyone with Mega Salamence!

    • Quizler

      Better learn to play Ubers, all the cool stuff is going there.

  • Kami nii

    Let’s be real here I thought Mega Salamence would be badass but wtf Its a Total Fail of a mega Evolution SMH, Please don’t screw Mega Flygon in the future Gamefreak ( If there will be one)

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Mega Playboy bun…I mean Lopunny is all I care for

  • Desk


  • Strawberry Starlet


    Edit* Wait. Does that wording mean we only dress them for contests? I am lost.

    Edit2* Wait. The screens show what look like battles in a grassy field. Surely the contests aren’t outside… I CAN HAZ COSPLAY BATTLE?

    • DuskSharkEX

      Pikachu only, most likely.

  • Slickyslacker

    I’ve already planned to use an Altaria in Alpha Sapphire.

    This is euphoric.

  • s07195

    Aren’t Fairy types created to counter the super awesomeness of Dragon types…? *facepalm*

    • Anesia Hunter

      well they had to give altaria some sort of edge. but its still weak against ice types and probably now vulnerable to steel types as well as weak against poison types. but it might be immune to dragon type moves now.

    • mike dickson

      look at the brightside this thing gets rape by poison ice steal so no worries

  • 3PointDecoupage

    I hate when they give megs evos to pokemon who are.already OPed.

    • Anesia Hunter

      you’re really surprised about salamence?

      • ShawnOtakuSomething


    • kao

      Apparently most OP’d poke’s that get mega evo’s like garchomp and scizor are already so OP’d that they are better off holding a life orb or choice item than wasting the mega slot(since most mega’s are just instant & minor buffs).

      • DeadLineDance

        It seems to depend on how good the Ability is, though. I can see MegaSalamence’s Aerilate being on par with MegaLucario’s Adaptability for insane power.

        • kao

          some OP megas had the same abilities while some others pretty much got a similar or slighter better ability.

          imo, having a better new ability is way more important than the stat buff, otherwise it’s just better off just holding an item. That’s why mawile with huge power is now a threat, pinsir with aerialate,gengar’s shadow tag, parental bond etc.

          I’m kinda surprised they gave salamence a game changer ability like aerialate considering how overused it was on it’s own though, this is going to be speed boost all over again.

  • fancycakes

    Yaaaa mega lopunny!!! Crossing my fingers for mega milotic

    • Aemette

      If they do that, they have better make it to where you can easily catch a damn Feebas… I’ve never caught one in Emerald and that darn fish always eludes me.

      • fancycakes

        Ugh tell me about it. I was 13 when sapphire came out and spent days upon days hunting for that stupid fish. I found a shiny carvanha before I found Feebas, so there’s that.

        • Aemette

          I hated Lucy from the Battle Pike cause of her Milotic. Nothing against Milotic, it’s just that this darn woman had probably gotten her mits on a Feebas while me, the poor main character, had to struggle for hours looking up useless guides on the internet on how to get a Feebas. My friends from middle school were of no use either. “Feebas? Oh just go to the main menu and press these buttons then start the game then eat these berries in this order then catch a Pikachu then teach it this move then go fishing for it and you’ll catch one on your first try.” USELESS!

      • Raltrios

        I got lucky one day and found a fishing spot for Feebas in Emerald. I spent a good half hour or so catching a truckload of them to transfer around between my games.

    • DeadLineDance

      I want it to get a Mega too. It will be the most beautiful Mega of all~

  • ekibyougami

    I’ll be buying a 3DS (again)

  • FivePointedTheStar

    Mega Altaria seems troll worthy. It already has good defense stats, so no surprise if it becomes more tanky.

    Mega Lopunny with Scrappy destroys Aegislash.

    Mega Salamence with Aerilate gives it the highest amount of damage out of Return. And Return is a TM.

    • AuraGuyChris

      Unless Aegislash uses King’s Shield and puts the bunny in a fickle.

  • Jesse Torres

    Wow a dragon/fairy type Altaria. I want to see what Salamance looks like.

    • J_Joestar

      a crescent moon.

      • AuraGuyChris

        A jet dragon with croissant-shaped wings.

        • mike dickson

          a boomerang noting else nothing more

  • Yindustries LLC

    My Altaria is pretty happy about this, but I don’t know if I should transfer him over or start fresh…

  • Renaldi Saputra

    This is MegaLopunny
    *forget the pict below, I deleted it

  • Vanslain

    Mega altaria?! my favorite dragon gets a mega! woohoo!

  • Savage Sui ♥

    Mega Altaria is soooo cute ^w^

    I’ve never had an Altaria in any of my Poképarties so far; I think my playthrough in ORAS will be as good a time as any :3

  • Land of Green Pasture

    Pseudo Legendaries with Mega evo incoming…
    I… don’t know how should I react with it..

  • Suzaku Kururugi

    I really fricking hope that we dont have to wait for another installment for Infernape & crew megas.

  • ShadowDivz

    Sweet, (one of my) favorite pokemon gets a mega!

  • Guillermo Oliva III

    Wow, Mega Altaria looks divine….

    • AuraGuyChris

      Don’t you mean…


  • SetzerGabbiani

    Super cotton Altaria. That Salamence design is truly disappointing.

    I need a plushie version of that Luchador Pikachu.

  • Bacon_n_Lettuce

    Salamence, what the hell are you doing?

  • TheSwordUser

    It’s as if GameFreak is actually following TPP.

    (Not really, I think it’s just a coincidence)

  • TerrenceEncore Jones

    I am really curious about the contest Pikachus.
