With the release of Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire on the horizon, info on new Mega Evolutions have found their way onto the Internet. Thanks to images taken from the latest issue of Japanese magazine CoroCoro, we can confirm that Sharpedo, Camerupt, and Gallade will all gain mega evolutions in the upcoming games.
Sharpedo, a Water/Dark shark Pokemon, becomes Mega Sharpedo and has the ability Strong Jaw, formally an ability exclusive to Tyrunt and Tyrantrum that boosts the power of certain biting moves like Bite and Crunch by 50%. Though he has some new yellow markings and sharper teeth, it seems like Mega Sharpedo will retain its Water/Dark typing.
Meanwhile, Fire type Camerupt becomes Mega Camerupt and gains Sheer Force, an ability that raises the base power of all attacking moves by 30% while ignoring additional move effects. Mega Camerupt sports a bigger coat, larger molten rocks, and a huge volcano on its back. So far, it too doesn\’t look like it\’ll change its typing.
Next, we have Gallade. Just like its familial counterpart Gardevoir, Gallade now has its own Mega Evolution. Unfortunately, we aren\’t quite sure what ability Mega Gallade will have.
And finally, CoroCoro also revealed that Primal Kyogre and Primal Groudon will have new abilities called \”Sea of Beginnings\” and \”Land of Endings,\” which are both weather-inducing abilities. Primal Groudon also has a new move called Cliff’s Blade, though we\’re unsure what exactly it does.
Let us know what you think of the new Mega Evolutions in the comments below and if they\’ll be making their way onto your team this Fall.
