    Looks like Super Training will be a faster way to EV train. We'll see how that pans out.

    Despite the "Evolution" moniker, these seem to be largely identical to the alternate Formes seen in previous generations. They are still the same species but with different (if not higher) stats, different apperance, maybe a new/altered Type, and maybe a new Ability. It's interesting, and I rather like the designs for Blaziken and Lucario, as well as Absol's Mega form in the CoroCoro leak. Ampharos is silly, but I also kind of like it.

    Speaking of Absol, a chance to have one strong enough to be more viable competitively would be awesome. I love Absol, and while I use one from time to time, it's outclassed by a lot of Pokemon in the meta game. I was also always worried that an evolution would make it ugly, but Absol's Mega Evolution form is not only temporary, it actually looks pretty sweet.

    Mewtwo's Mega/Awakened form is going to have even higher Special attack? If it's Attack Forme Deoxys level or higher, that would be scary indeed.

    Agreed Strawberry, Absol is finally getting the love it deserves. Although who can say whether or not these Mega Evolutions will make these Pokemon as strong as typical Legendaries and thus make them frowned upon.

    Have to say, this is some of the most exciting news I've ever seen coming out of Pokemon. They managed to take a few of my favorite Pokemon and make them look Absolutely cool, such as Mawile, and even turned Pokemon I didn't care much for like Blaziken and made them desirable. Absol and Mawile have a guaranteed spot on my X/Y team, thats for sure. Last time I was excited to play Pokemon was back with Ruby/Sapphire, but I'm looking forward to seeing what else X/Y has in store.

    The new Ampharos looks Amphabulous. And hey, legit Speed Boost Blaziken. This pleases me.

    Anyone know what the opponent critter is in this screen?

    I don't see anything similar listed on Bulbapedia, and it reminds me of a rumor about a "Kaenchu" (fire-type Pikachu) that some of my students were talking about last month.


    Nevermind, Serebii.net has him identified as Dedenne, an Electric/Fairy type.

    They've announced Mega Kangaskhan at the World Championship. It's a normal Kangaskhan, but the baby fights along-side it outside of the pouch.

    While this is nice, I'm still waiting to hear what this new Fairy type will be strong and weak against (other then Dragon.)

    Most speculate that it's weak to steel and poison.

    I too am excited for the mega forms, but did they really have to give Absol wings?
    And I love the idea of the super training since I have never been patient enough to properly EV train even with an Action Replay
