Blaziken Mega Evolving into Mega Blaziken
Mega Evolution (Japanese: メガシンカ Mega Evolution) is a new transformation found only in the Kalos region. Mega Evolutions are identified by having "Mega" in front of their name.
In order to undergo a Mega Evolution, the Pokémon must be holding the applicable Mega Stone. The player must use their Mega Ring, which contains a Key Stone, to resonate with the Mega Stone held by their Pokémon to trigger Mega Evolution. Mega Evolution can only occur in battle and disappears after the battle is over or the Mega-Evolved Pokémon faints. Each player may only Mega Evolve one Pokémon per battle, and cannot Mega Evolve a Pokémon again during that battle even if it is knocked out while Mega Evolved. Also, in online battles and the Battle Maison, the player's opponent gets to move first during the turn the player's Pokémon Mega Evolves.
Korrina, the Gym Leader of Shalour City, is said to know secrets about Mega Evolution. The Tower of Mastery is also related to Mega Evolution. The first Pokémon said to have been Mega Evolved was a Lucario.
A Mega-Evolved Pokémon has different (usually higher) base stats and can have a different Ability and type to its non-Mega Evolved form. Each Mega-Evolved Pokémon's base stat total is exactly 100 points higher than that of its base form.
