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 saw no change in Venosaur. Charizard however, is awesome.

  • Blastoise grows a freaking giant bazooka, but then uses one of his side cannons instead...? xP
  • Just when I decide not to buy this game, this came out!

  • I'm just sticking with what I know. I'll stick with regular evolutions. As for the Second starters, kind of steals the thunder away from Chespin, Froakie, and Fennekin. But Whatever, Chespin all the way, beating up all the Mega Evolutions!

  • I feel a sexual meme from Mega Blastoise is imminent.

  • I'm assuming Blastoise's new name is going to be like 'Blastank' or something haha.

  • Meh...

  • Mega Blastoise... More like Mega Bad Boy. He and Charizard got the best ones I have seen thus far.

  • So fresh out of ideas that you pervert the classics. Stop beating a dead horse with Pokemon. It was great, then awesome, but then just kept getting worse, can't you accept that fact and move on.
  • the blastoise and the venasaur look weird compared to the charizard which they obviously put more effort into making look cool

  • Mega Charizard looks beast! I also like Mega Blastoise too. Mega Venasaur looks like they put an extra flower and vines. He wasn't my favorite Kanto starter and his improvement wont change my mind.

  • Was there a new Pokemon at 15:11? Here's a screenshot of the frame: http://imgur.com/faBJo2c

  • Why is October 12th not here yet?! I WANT!!!

  • Mega Blastoise, and Mega Charzard look awesome, I cannot wait to use them!

  • def going mega venusaur he has the ability thick fat which makes him lose his weakness to fire and ice type moves.. awesome

  • Mega Charizard is okay looking.  They just made Venusaur and Blastoise(my favorite) look dumb.  Great job.

  • This is so cool!  This game just keeps getting better and better--can't wait until Oct. 12!

  • Although I don't like or watch it, I just started wondering how these Mega Evolutions will be factored into the show. Ash will probably be trying to get back again with Charizard now that he's found out he can evolve another time. In battle.
  • .... mega blastoise looks just plain idiotic... armshells?... really?
  • Only one of these three doesn't look completely ridiculous.

    I will give you a hint, It is green/blue and has a massive flower on its back.
