Introducing Mega Charizard X And Mega Charizard Y In Pokémon X And Y


Mewtwo isn’t the only Pokémon with two Mega Evolutions in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y—Charizard will have two as well, named Mega Charizard X and Mega Charizard Y. Take a look at the two below:



The Mega Charizard evolution revealed previously is, in fact, Mega Charizard Y, according to The Pokémon Company. Mega Charizard Y’s Special Attack increases significantly from its evolution, and its Ability changes to Drought, increasing the power of Fire-type moves. It can learn Blast Burn as a move.


Meanwhile, Mega Charizard X, being introduced today, has the Tough Claws ability, which raises the power of moves that make direct contact. Mega Charizard X can learn the Dragon-type move Dragon Tail, which forces the opposing Pokémon to switch out, in addition to doing damage.


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