Last month, it was made public that one of the most renowned Pokémon in Game Freak/Creatures Inc‘s globally acclaimed video game series, Charizard, would be in line to obtain a further Mega Evolution in the newest additions to the franchise, the upcoming and highly anticipated Pokémon X & Y; an extraordinarily powerful form, limited to only a few selected Pokémon.

What is now known is that Charizard will be able to evolve into a choice of two mega evolutions, depending on the Mega Stone the trainer has in their inventory, whether that is Charizardite X or Charizardite Y. The benefits of these stones will immediately grant the Pokémon a Mega evolution, altering the Pokémon in form and skillset; with the aid of Charizardite X, Charizard will expand into a black bodied, blue flamed Fire and Dragon type Pokémon, as opposed to the traditional Fire and Flying skills.

In addition to Charizardite, there will be other Mega Stones throughout the worlds of both X and Y allowing these instant power-ups, though all you trainers out there should be aware that these evolutions are not exclusive to either X nor Y, as the trading system allows civil trainers to exchange Mega Stones should they wish to; so chances are you won’t be missing out on your pick of the litter.

“These stones are like other in-game items so they can be traded by attaching to a Pokémon, and trading that Pokémon with another,”

Whilst the respective Mega Stones exist in their corresponding game edition, the abilities they grant aren’t limited to the customer’s choice in title. For example; Players will need to get hold of Charizardite Y within the confines of Pokémon Y in order to either trade that item or use it independently; using the stone will greatly improve Charizard’s Special Attack, and it’s primary ability changes to Drought – increasing the effects of fire-based attacks. By using the Blast Burn move, this means that Charizard’s attack will be almost twice as devastating combined with the Drought ability. Though these perks and manoeuvres, as mentioned, will not necessarily be exclusive purely for Mega Charizard Y, and may be available for other Pokemon to use depending on choice, strategy and skillsets.

Placing both evolutions side-by-side, I can’t help but fall head over heels for Mega X, everything from the Tough Claws ability, the Dragon set, right down to the overall aesthetics of Charizard’s new design, it practically sings to me. But what can we really anticipate to see in the new performance of these evolutions in battle?

For an example of what to expect from Mega Charizard X & Y this Saturday, check out the trailer above for all-new gameplay footage and see for yourself!

So tell us… who will YOU choose?

Now I have another reason for my friend to get Y. She’s not as into pokemon as I am so she probably won’t care about getting a mega houndoom which I found out is y exclusive.

Will there be any way to obtain multiple mega stones? Or will I have to play the game through, trade them over to another game, and reset to have multiple?
