Megaree (Japanese: メガぴょん Megapyon), known as Mega in Chuang Yi's translations, is a Meganium that Crystal owns in Pokémon Adventures and her seventh overall. Crystal received him from Professor Elm. As of With a Little Help From Hitmonchan, he is level 80 and his Characteristic is "good endurance."


Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter

As a Chikorita

Megaree first appeared in Murkrow Row. He was originally a Chikorita owned by Professor Elm alongside a Cyndaquil and a Totodile. After Cyndaquil and Totodile were taken by Gold and Silver, respectively, Chikorita was left alone in Professor Elm's laboratory.

In Three Cheers for Chikorita, Chikorita learns about Crystal, a Trainer who specializes in capturing Pokémon. Professor Elm initially intended to give Chikorita to Crystal, but she already had a full team and had no intention off adding any more permanent team members. Upon learning this, Chikorita gets angry and runs away to find Crystal.

He finds Crystal attempting to capture a wild Victreebel on Route 30. Just as Crystal attempts to attack the Victreebel with Archy, Chikorita steps in the way, forcing Crystal to stop the attack. Victreebel takes this opportunity to use Chikorita as a shield, preventing Crystal from attacking. After having Chumee prevent Victreebel from escaping with Mean Look, Crystal captures both Chikorita and Victreebel. Crystal attempts to transfer Chikorita over to Professor Oak, but Chikorita stops her and reveals he wishes to join her team. Crystal, believing Chikorita to be took weak to join on what would be a dangerous journey to capture Pokémon, refuses to let him join her team. When Chikorita still chooses to join her, Crystal sends out Monlee to battle against it. Monlee easily blocks Chikorita's attacks and even shatters the ground in front of Chikorita with a Mega Punch. Despite being outmatched, Chikorita stands its ground and refuses to run away. Impressed by its bravery, Crystal allows Chikorita to join her team and names him "Megaree". As Megaree would take its spot on Crystal's team, Chumee gave Megaree her star pendant so that he would match the rest of Crystal's Pokémon.

In Lively Larvitar, Megaree was used to battle a wild Larvitar that was responsible for Archy's eye injury in the past. Although Larvitar proved to be a powerful opponent, it was eventually defeated when Megaree evolved into a Bayleef, allowing Crystal to capture it.

As a Bayleef

In Lively Lugia II, Megaree is happily reunited with Exbo and Totodile, who have since evolved into Quilava and Croconaw, respectively. Together, the three fend off a wild Lugia at the Whirl Islands. When Lugia attempts to crush them under its weight, Megaree, Exbo, and Croconaw work together to hold Lugia up. The strain of this causes Megaree, Exbo, and Croconaw to evolve into Meganium, Typhlosion, and Feraligatr, respectively. Thought they succeed in saving their Trainers, Lugia eventually escapes.

In The Last Battle XIV, Megaree is used alongside the other starters to try and stop the Masked Man's attempt to capture Celebi.

Emerald chapter

Megaree and Crystal

In The Final Battle VIII, Megaree was used to destroy Guile Hideout's fake Kyogre monster. Having learned Frenzy Plant from Ultima, Megaree teamed up with Red's Saur and Emerald's Sceptile to unleash a triple Frenzy Plant at the fake Kyogre. Together, along with a triple Blast Burn, a triple Hydro Cannon, and a triple Volt Tackle from the other starters, the fake Kyogre is ultimately destroyed.

HeartGold & SoulSilver chapter

In All About Arceus V, Megaree, Exbo, and Silver's Feraligatr are used to attack the incomplete forms of Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina created by Arceus. Through a combination of the ultimate attacks, the three Legendary Pokémon are stopped, though this only delays their completion.

Personality and characteristics

Megaree is a very brave Pokémon and is described by Crystal as someone with "mega watts of courage". He wastes no time jumping into difficult battles and refuses to give up. Megaree also has a strong sense of justice and hates seeing the strong prey off of the weak.
