Original Starters Get Mega Evolutions In X & Y Trailer

In this morning's Nintendo Direct, Game Freak and the Pokémon Company revealed something special for long-time fans of the series. In addition to the starters for X and Y (Chespin, Fennekin, and Froakie), Charmander, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur will be on hand.

More importantly, they'll be getting mega evolutions. We've got more on mega evolutions, our PAX 2013 experiences, and the upcoming Pokémon Bank online service. You can see more on the mega evolutions of the three original starters in the Nintendo Direct.

  • I was already sick of people talking about Charizard, and now this. Sigh.

  • They changed their calls too, at least charmander's. Squirtle's sounded a little more high pitches and bulbasaur's was kinda hard to tell, but that charmander was definitely different. And I'm surprised at how much I like the mega evolutions for those three

  • omg

  • Wonder what Mega Infernape will look like...

    He's already the epitome of badass. Fighting flame-monkey? How are they gonna top that?
  • This...this is beautiful...*sheds tear of delight* Gamefreak has not forgotten the first Generation!


  • This definitely makes the game more appealing to me. I will always be a Gen 1 fan.

  • Meh. They don't even look all that different...
  • I want that Venusaur....badly.  Charizard is completely overrated and I'm not a huge fan of water types for some reason as I love water elements in other games or shows.

  • I was THRILLED the moment i watched the clip about their mega forms....and then i looked at the images....I know longer want Blastoise to mega evolve.  I'm no for it.  He looks too "hard" now.  too much armor, not enough natural shell.  This is not stopping me from getting this game though.  Just saying I like my Blastoise regular in the morning!

  • it's sooooo beautiful! But...the choices! THE CHOICES!

  • My childhood! What the hell are they doing to my childhood!? This looks terrible. Eff off Nintendo. You did enough killing Zelda for me in Skyward Sword, then you had to make Mewtwo and Charizard evolve!? Never again will you receive a single penny from me. I am content that I stopped buying EVERY SINGLE game from you a couple of years ago, all you are doing is killing my childhood and beating a dead hoarse over and over. F*ck off Ninty :'(
  • LOL, Blastoise looks wrong..... Good thing they put his cannon over his head......
  • Wow, it looks like they're finding all kinds of ways to appeal to every kind of pokemon fan with X and Y. The only part of this I don't like is that I have too many reasons not to choose Fennekin. With both the event Torchic and Prof. Sycamore's Charmander, there's no way I'm putting a third fire-type on my team.

    By the way, I'm still holding onto hope that we'll get a Mega Swampert. Finally seeing the starter I've kept with me throughout all my Poke-ventures evolve into something even greater would be a defining moment for me.
  • is it wrong that i am more excited about this game than any of the next gen consoles coming out?
  • *plays pokemon video*

    *sees M rating*

    *Freaks out*

    *realizes It's an ad for Dead Or alive 5 Ultimate*

  • Unless Charizard receives a new type in its mega evolution, its still terrible in battles. Charizard is still the most overrated Pokemon in the series.
  • Is it weird that I have have a boner from this?
