The lights are on
Pokémon X and Y are coming in October, and Nintendo has revealed Mega Evolutions, Super Training, as well as new Pokémon and a new Gym Leader.
Not all Pokémon will be able to Mega Evolve, but the ones that can will be able to tap into a reserve of hidden power in the middle of battle. Their appearance will change and their statistics will raise, but Mega Evolved Pokémon will return to their normal form after the end of a battle.
Pokémon X and Y will also introduce Super Training, which will allow your Pokémon to level up and gain strength while not in battle. Super Training involves playing mini-games that will increase your Pokémon's base stats.
Today, we've also learned about new Electric and Fairy-type Pokémon Dedenne, Bunnelby the new Normal-type Pokémon, and Skiddo, the pre-evolved form of the previously announced Gogoat.
Finally, we learn about Korrina. She's a new Gym Leadert who seems to have the best understanding of how Mega Evolutions work, and she's also a fantastic roller skater.
To see the Mega Evolution in action, check out the latest trailer. You can also learn more details about Super Training, Mega Evolutions, the newly revealed Pokémon, and the newest Gym Leader, Korrina, by checking out the full press release on page two.

It's so awesome that Kyle had to post two articles about it. lol.
ooooh~ super training. interesting.
Wha?!........That Lucario is over 9000!!!!
I'm not sold on the Mega Evolutions, but at least they are optional so I can completely ignore them. I just don't see the point behind them, we already have evolutions and form changes, did we really need something else added to the mix?
Cool, I guess this is really good news.
So...this just made me want this game even more. Gamefreak is really going all-out this gen. A new type, new in-battle evolutions, new Pokemon interaction (though slightly creepy), and 3D graphics with full battle animation..oh my, lol
Pokémon art still looks great. Really loving the Mega Mewtwo vs Mega Lucario art.
this is awesome. pokemon is actually evolving as a game, every entry gets better and more innovative.
