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.
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.
In order to Mega Evolve, the Pokémon must be holding the appropriate Mega Stone and its Trainer must have a Key Stone. Professor Sycamore theorizes that even with the Mega Stone and the respective item to resonate with the stone, Mega Evolution cannot be achieved if there is not a strong bond between Trainer and Pokémon. Each player can only Mega Evolve a single Pokémon once per battle. Even if the Mega Evolved Pokémon faints, the player cannot perform another Mega Evolution, even on the same Pokémon (which is now not Mega Evolved), for the duration of that battle.
Mega Stones cannot be taken via Thief and Covet, cause Trick and Switcheroo to fail if used on or by the holder, and cause Fling and Bestow to fail if used by the holder. Embargo and Magic Room also cannot prevent the use of Mega Stones to Mega Evolve Pokémon.
A Pokémon cannot Mega Evolve while airborne due to Sky Drop, but it can regardless of status conditions.
A Mega-Evolved Pokémon reverts to its normal state after the battle is over or if it faints.
A Mega-Evolved Pokémon has different base stats, with the exception of HP, and can have a different Ability and type from its non-Mega-Evolved form. Except for Mega Alakazam, which has 90 more base stat points than its base form, every Mega-Evolved Pokémon's base stat total is 100 points higher than that of its base form.
Since movement order is determined before any moves are used (except changes due to Quash and After You), the Pokémon's new Speed or Ability will not affect movement order on the turn during which it Mega Evolves.
