Following from the Coro Coro leak, the Pokemon Company has uploaded a brand new trailer for Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, introducing the recently revealed Mega Pokemon’s. Joining the family of Mega Evolved Pokemon are Mega Altaria, Mega Lopunny and Mega Salamence.

Mega Altaria is a substantial upgrade over its normal form. The Mega Evolve form will change its type to Fairy/Dragon, and will gain the ability Pixelate. According to the Coro Coro scans, Mega Altaria will see buffs in the Attack stat.

Meanwhile, Mega Lopunny is a fighting and normal type Pokemon with the ability Scrappy. When transformed into its mega counterpart, Lopunny will be granted additional power in the Special Attack and Attack stat. mega salamence officialLast, but not least, Mega Salamence retains the flying/dragon typing, and will gain the ability Aerilate. Unlike Mega Altaria and Mega Lopunny, Mega Salamence will see boosts in the Defense stats rather than in the offensive stats.

In addition, the trailer also showcases a small glimpse of the revamp Pokemon Contest modes. Judging from the trailer, it appears that Mega Evolved Pokemon will be an integral element in Pokemon contest. This is simply a hypothesis for now, but I do believe GameFreaks will include a separate contest strictly for Mega Evolved Pokemon.

The trailer has revealed that Cosplay Pikachu will be usable in normal Pokemon battles. We’ve known for a while now that Cosplay Pikachu will be playable in contests (and in Pokemon Amie), so this is a new revelation for Poke aficionado’s.

And lastly, starting from November 21, GameFreaks will be distributing via the internet, an ultra rare shiny Beldum holding a Mega stone.

Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will launch in North America, Japan and Australia on November 21. Europe will have to wait a week longer as the game is scheduled for release on November 28.

About - Former friend of Mii-gamer’s Editor-in-Chief, Michael! Unfortunately, the friendship was ruined after a fateful night of Mario Kart 8. As the loser of the bet, I agreed to help around Mii-gamer as the Deputy Editor. Nah just joking! I joined Mii-gamer because I have passion for writing and Nintendo happens to be my favorite game company, it was the perfect opportunity to share my passion. I play all types of game, but I especially love online oriented titles. My favorite Nintendo franchise are 3D Mario platformers ( a bit cliche, I know).
