Alternate Mega Evolution Revealed For Charizard In New Pokémon X & Y Trailer

Much like his pal Mewtwo, it turns out Charizard will have different Mega Evolutions depending on which version of Pokémon X & Y you are playing.

The previously revealed Charizard Mega Evolution is the Y version, while the new black and blue Charizard (see above) is the Mega Evolved Charizard you will find in X. Game Freak and Nintendo made no mention in regard to whether or not the other starters, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur, will have separate X and Y Mega Evolutions.

Pokémon X & Y are coming to Nintendo 3DS on October 12. You can check out the trailer showcasing Mega Charizard X below, as well as more images of the Mega Evolved Charizards in the image gallery.

  • that black charazard is to cool!

  • This is pretty cool. I hope they save some of these so that the players can find them on their own, instead of announcing all of them.

  • Hmm. I don't care much for the mega evolutions... But Charizard X is pretty awesome. Glad that's the one I'm getting.

  • Who would have thought Nintendo was gonna get real and start making these pokemon look so f****** badass!!!

  • Alright, X it is then.

  • Mod

    Sorry, but i'm of the minority here, I don't see the big appeal of these mega evolutions.  The franchise just hasn't captivated me since Gold/Silver.  Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald were pretty good but it just didn't have the allure and magic that the first two generations had.  Pokemon needs to have way bigger changes and step outside of their comfort zone.  :/

  • I'll pick the version with the cooler version of Blastiose and if he has only one Mega-Evo I'll pick X so I can have this Charizard as well Blastiose

  • I know this makes everyone want to switch to X, but I still wanna wait and see the rest of the badass mega evolved pokemon first

  • both those mega charizards look awesome to me cant really decide which one looks better good thing I'm getting both versions

  • crap, now i have to get X

  • I picked X a long time ago thank goodness, gonna get the water frog thing as my starter, and get that Torchic via WiFi holding Blazikens Mega stone thingy, and use him throughout as well.

  • Bad. Ass.

    That is all.

  • this look sweet like the red one but the drak one look evil and cool lol

  • Id really wish this would come out on the other consoles too id love it much

  • Never would have thought that Nintendo would take a trick from Digimon and let some Pokemon digivolve to the Mega level...

  • it's not mentioned here but the Pokemon X version of Mega Charizard gets the "Dragon/Fire" type upon it's mega evolution.

  • Looks cool. Plan to get both anyways at some point due to exclusives(damn you game freak) but will stick to Y at launch simply because of Yveltal. Plan on using Fennekin as fire type anyhow, so I don't see a huge use for Charizard beyond Dragon type moves.

  • *Sigh* I guess I need to get back into Pokemon. And get a new DS. And both versions of this game.

  • I guess I'll be the only person playing Y.
