This article implies they retconned Ampharos to Dragon-type. As far as I know, he's not; it's the MegaAmpharos who has the Dragon-type... Marked +-+-+ (talk) 14:55, 9 August 2013 (UTC)

Oops, didn't notice it. Only if you had reported this 3 minutes ago... TheOriginalOne 14:57, 9 August 2013 (UTC)

mega evolution

Please add that, A new area called the Master Tower is related to Mega Evolutions. --Viv (talk) 15:19, 9 August 2013 (UTC) add this

Should the abilities be added?

In the chart on the page, should the abilities of the mega evolved formes be added? MrBananaMan212 (talk) 17:35, 9 August 2013 (UTC)

IMHO yes, at least for abilities confirmed different from the species's regular Ability. That would include:
Whether or not to include Mega Blaziken/Mawile/Ampharos/Absol is still a matter of debate. --Stratelier 04:49, 10 August 2013 (UTC)
I'm uncomfortable with adding Abilities because we don't know if it will be their only Ability, or if their Hidden Ability will be different. I think the info needs to be there, we just need to be careful about it. --SnorlaxMonster 08:22, 10 August 2013 (UTC)

Korean name for Mega Evolution

For the sake of completeness.... its Korean name is 메가진화 Mega Jinhwa.

Request for minor edits...

The aspect ratio on Lucario's image seems to be off (Firefox reports it as being scaled up to 150x227, correct size 150x138). Can someone fix that? I'm not sure what to look for in the markup, and of course, the page is currently locked. --Stratelier 04:53, 10 August 2013 (UTC)

I think it's like that because the picture got updated today. It should fix itself soon enough. --It's Funktastic~!話してください 04:59, 10 August 2013 (UTC)
*reloads image* I see. Much better. --Stratelier 03:04, 12 August 2013 (UTC)

Mega Evolution Physiology

Should we add the appearance of the Mega Evolution forms to the Physiology section of the pages of the Pokemon that have them? Vienna Waltz (talk) 06:05, 10 August 2013 (UTC)

I think that's a good idea. The Pokémon probably don't need completely separate articles since it's closer to fore changes than actual evolution. Reign (talk) 20:05, 10 August 2013 (UTC)
We can do it like how we did the Kami trio's forme difference physiology. Yamitora1 (talk) 20:09, 10 August 2013 (UTC)

Individual Articles

If there's a page for Mega Evolutions, why do the individual Pokemon articles aside from Mewtwo not mention their new forms? Drake Clawfang (talk) 01:05, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

We have to make an extreme amount of modifications to our existing tables and infoboxes in order to accommodate Mega Evolutions. Although we try to be as current and up to date as possible, we also want to only have to mess with the coding for high use templates as few of times as possible, as the wiki will have to force itself to update every single page using the templates, thus causing the site to slow down. We're waiting a little bit to work out all the final kinks to these before implementing them. MaverickNate 01:51, 11 August 2013 (UTC)
Fair enough, but couldn't even a mention and link to the article be made in the intro paragraph? Drake Clawfang (talk) 05:03, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

More Megas

Today the Pokemon website officially released Mega Ampharos, Mega Mawile and Mega Absol. Now could we update their pictures to these instead of the blurry corocoro scans please. --Ziggyangelo88 (talk) 05:31, 12 August 2013 (UTC)

They are updated. It takes time for them to update on Bulbapedia. --It's Funktastic~!話してください 05:36, 12 August 2013 (UTC)

DNA Rainbow

Shouldn't it be noted that the rainbow colored shape above a Pokemon's head while it mega evolves is the same symbol found on the Japanese logo for X and Y? --Ziggyangelo88 (talk) 07:40, 12 August 2013 (UTC)

The DNA symbol you speak of is the Mega Stone. Zeta (talk) 07:42, 12 August 2013 (UTC)


You may also note that MegaEvo can change height and/or weight of the Pokémon. Marked +-+-+ (talk) 07:51, 12 August 2013 (UTC)


While I know Serebii is widely considered a fansite, he does have some new images of the Mega Ampharos, Mawile, and Absol that are better than the scans. Schiffy (Speak to me|What I've done) 15:56, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

The high quality artwork of the Mega Evolutions has already been uploaded to the archives, it only takes some time for Bulbapedia's system to recognize the image changes and display the latest version, thus why you still see the low quality scans. It usually takes a couple of days before the correct versions (the high quality artwork) is shown. ☼ BlazingFist ☼ 16:01, 15 August 2013 (UTC)
It appears that images will update when their size is changed, so I made a minor change to the image sizes.--Den Zen 16:10, 15 August 2013 (UTC)
Aha, I see them now. Though, on the topic, I think this might be a better image for Mega Kangaskhan. Schiffy (Speak to me|What I've done) 17:26, 15 August 2013 (UTC)
That's hosted by Serebii; we're not allowed to use his stuff. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 18:43, 15 August 2013 (UTC)
Ah, well nevermind then. Schiffy (Speak to me|What I've done) 18:45, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

Original Ability

Could you put the primary abilities that the Pokemon has before the mega evolution to show how it changes. --Ziggyangelo88 (talk) 09:26, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

We don't know how having a Hidden Ability affects the change, so they will not be put up right now. --SnorlaxMonster 10:28, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

mega evolution seem similar to something else?

Hey not sure if this was the right place to mention this or not, but as a long time fan of Pokemon AND digimon, I cant help but draw similarities between mega evolution, and digivolution from the digimon anime. I only mention this as a matter of curiosity. In the digimon anime, a digimon would digivolve to a higher form during battle, before reverting to they're original form after the battle had ended. I just thought the similarity was worth noting.Silverfin007 (talk) 14:55, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

It's most likely just a coincidence. They're similar concepts, you know? So unless it's officially stated by Game Freak, that theory should be ignored here, with a possible discussion just on the forums オリナル TheOriginalOne 15:02, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

And if it was intentional, Toei Animation would probably sue Nintendo for plagiarism. SeanWheeler (talk) 15:25, 17 August 2013 (UTC)

Mega Evolving

As we now know that Mega Evolution occurs when a Pokémon able to Mega Evolve holds a Mega Stone and a specific button is pressed on-screen during battle, as proved yesterday on the Pokémon Game Show demo version of Pokémon X and y, in a photo that was taken, where the in-battle button was showcased. Should the text that states - "In order to undergo a Mega Evolution, the Pokémon must be holding the applicable Mega Stone, and meet a currently unspecified other condition." not be changed to "In order to undergo a Mega Evolution, the Pokémon must be holding the applicable Mega Stone, and the player must select the Mega Evolution button whilst in battle."--ShinyPatch (talk) 20:57, 17 August 2013 (UTC)

No. That was a demo. There is nothing saying that it happens like that in the full game. For all we know, the condition is that it has to be unlocked. I don't think that pressing a button counts as a "condition." Ataro (talk) 21:19, 17 August 2013 (UTC)
I agree, there could be more requirements and restrictions that need to be uncovered first. With something like that it wouldn't surprise me. -Tyler53841 (talk) 00:13, 18 August 2013 (UTC)
