Image for Mega Rayquaza

Given that Rayquaza's page has an image for its Mega Evolution, shouldn't this article have one as well? I'd add it in myself, but I am not allowed to edit the page, so could someone add one for me, please? He's here! The one and only...Uncle Edit! (talk) 21:17, 2 October 2014 (UTC)

I believe we're waiting for the official artwork to come out before adding it. --Pokemaster97 19:03, 5 October 2014 (UTC)
I understand that official artwork take priority before anything else, but why does Rayquaza's page have an image but not this one? It really doesn't make sense to me. Of course, in the event we decide to use said image for both articles, we can remove it once official artwork comes out for Mega Rayquaza. That screen-cap certainly isn't something that we should use permanently. He's here! The one and only...Uncle Edit! (talk) 19:22, 5 October 2014 (UTC)

Separate Mini-Sections

I was thinking that if it should come to it Pokémon capable of Mega Evolution can have the entries split up into two separate mini-sections: Introduced in X and Y and Introduced in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. However I would like to wait first until more information comes out first before doing such as thing. If the new Mega Pokémon are confirmed to be incompatible with X and Y then I would definitely support this idea. -Tyler53841 (talk) 17:01, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

Nice Idea. But what do you mean "incompatible" ? → PikaTepig999 17:18, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
We might or might not get a patch that updated XY with ORAS megas (the only that pre-exist in XY are the Lati@s mega). Eridanus (talk) 17:21, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
It is also the same as how Pokémon with newer forms that were introduced in Platinum and Black & White 2 were not compatible with the original games (Diamond & Pearl and Black & White). -Tyler53841 (talk) 17:25, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
There's not gonna be a patch. So now it will be better if the megas are divided into two sections. → PikaTepig999 15:32, 15 October 2014 (UTC)
You cannot know that. It won't hurt anything to at least wait until ORAS is released. Then we'll at least know exactly what to say about how the Mega evolution compatibility is handled between ORAS and XY. Tiddlywinks (talk) 15:47, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

Ice has two now

Fix the trivia Nutter Butter (talk) 13:10, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

It's fixed. Thanks for the reminder. Berrenta (talk) 14:45, 15 October 2014 (UTC)
While you're at it, Electric also has the least (2), the same as ice. Fix it, okay?--Omojuzeforever (talk) 15:32, 15 October 2014 (UTC)
And Psychic has 10, not 9. Dragons have 9 though..--Omojuzeforever (talk) 15:33, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

Lati@sites tradeable to XY?

Does the game let you trade the Lati@sites over to XY? If so should a little note be added mentioning that these mega-stones are in the code for XY despite not being made available till ORAS? Jmvb (talk) 01:54, 4 December 2014 (UTC)


Is it plausible to assume that some ideas for Mega Evolution might have been inspired by the infamous PokéGods that were popular in the fandom back in the 1990s and early 2000s? If so, this should be added as trivia. A good source on PokéGods is the RAGECANDYBAR project site (link). SatoMew 17:26, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

No, I don't think so. While the possibility that Game Freak could have possibly been inspired by such rumors may exist, there's zero reason to ASSUME that they were inspired by them, especially since to my knowledge Game Freak has never acknowledged those rumors before. —AndyPKMN (talk) 18:15, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

I would like to know something...

Before I put something like this in the trivia: "Before the introduction of Lopunny's Mega Evolution in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Meloetta in its' Pirouette Forme was the only Pokémon with a unique type combination of Normal/Fighting.", does anyone who's reading this it's wise to do so? Oh, and Merry Christmas, Bulbapedia! IM-T-MAN2 (talk) 03:55, 26 December 2014 (UTC)

No. "Used to be" trivias aren't really notable.--ForceFire 04:05, 26 December 2014 (UTC)
^I'd replace "really" with "generally" in the above, as there are always exceptions. But in this case, something this narrow/complex would be a bit out-of-place on an article that talks about all of Mega Evolution in general. In addition, it's not exactly unique as there are at least three other Pokémon that had unique type combinations in Gen V but lost them in Gen VI, being Reshiram (Mega Charizard X), Zekrom (Mega Ampharos), and Numel/Camerupt (Primal Groudon). Thanks for asking! Blueapple128 (talk) 04:12, 26 December 2014 (UTC)
Thank you, Force Fire. IM-T-MAN2 (talk) 04:09, 26 December 2014 (UTC)

Two Things

I may be blind, but it looks like it needs to be mentioned how the Mega Evolutions introduces in ORAS are not compatible with XY. However, Latios and Latias are. I'm not really sure the best way to word that so if someone could figured out a way to incorporate that it would be awesome. If I'm blind than I apologize for bringing this up.

Also, this was briefly talked about prior to ORAS release, but should the list of Mega Evolutions be changed a little? Right now it's two lists, the XY ones, and the ORAS ones. However, someone mentioned that we could put all of them in one list and add another column indicating the game they were released in. Thoughts? --HoennMaster 19:24, 11 January 2015 (UTC)

I don't think you're blind, but I think I'm not going to try to fix it (anytime soon).
I really don't think we "need" to combine the tables, but I can conceive that there may be a benefit to it that doesn't jump out at me right now. Maybe... Tiddlywinks (talk) 19:45, 11 January 2015 (UTC)

gen. 5

Genesect and the Legend Awakened is a gen. 5 movie and it has mega evolution in it. just saying. --Valehd (tAlk) 21:42, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

Yes, and? Mewtwo Strikes Back is a Gen I movie and features over three Gen II Pokemon. Pokemon Heroes is a Gen II movie that features two Gen III Pokemon. And so on and so on. The anime constantly promotes future generations in their movies. Ataro (talk) 23:25, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

In the TCG

In the TCG, Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre have the same traits as all other Mega evolutions and so shouldn't they be considering a Mega Evolution in the TCG? Pokemaniac1337 (talk) 15:14, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
