Mega Evolutions

Nintendo seems to be going all out with the Mega Evolutions this coming generation with Altaria, Lopunny, Salamence and Metagross all having been previously revealed to have new Mega Evolutions in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. This time the Pokemon revealed are Mega Slowbro and Mega Audino.

The images were originally leaked on the official Korean Pokemon website, but the pages have since been removed. Despite this a good deal of the information has been translated. From this we know that Mega Audino is Normal/Fairy-type and has the ability Healer while Mega Slowbro remains Water/Physic and has the ability Shell Armor. We also know that upon Mega Evolving Mega Audino get an increase in Defense and Special Defense and Mega Slowbro gets an increase in both Defense and Special Attack.

How do you all feel about these evolutions? Do they pique your interest? If not, do you think you’ll find a place for them on your team now that they have new Mega Evolutions?

    Boy am I hyped!! Im can’t wait to see how many new Mega Evolutions there will be. We’ve already got confirmed Gen 3 + 4 Pokemon getting megas, and now Gens 1 and 5 are getting Megas? Damn… Day One purchase for me!

    In terms of design I think the look utterly ridiculous. I would at least see them as usable if they gained their hidden ability through these mega evolution, both of which are the amazing ability regenerator. Instead, Mega Slowbro gets an ability that’s worse than any of it’s current options, and Mega Audino will default to an ability that only even has a chance of working in double or triple battles.
