Breaking News (That You Probably Already Know) II

Just like the majority of the Pokemon fanbase, I pay much attention to new announcements (such as serebii.net). And like many others, I've wondered why a bunch of Pokemon don't have any evolutions (I'm looking straight at you, Absol). Well, wonder no more! Now, there is the official addition of "Mega Pokemon," which are essentially super-charged variants. As far as I know of, the majority (if not all) of these "Mega" variants come from some sort of Mega Stone. Such Pokemon capable of these events include the aforementioned Absol, Lucario, Ampharos, Awakened Mewtwo variant, Mawile, and Blaziken. One more confirmed addition is Kangaskhan, which haves the baby finally step out of its pouch.
Above: The Mega Ampharos. ReadyWhip makes everything epic.
For more details on Mega Evolutions, visit http://www.serebii.net/xy/megaevolutions.shtml.

In other Pokemon News, several events will be coming for non-Japanese players. In the US, you can obtain a Shiny Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina. All are level 100 and come in the exclusive Cherish Ball.

Shiny Dialga available from 8/19- 9/8.
Shiny Palkia available from 9/9- 9/29.
Shiny Giratina available from 9/30- 10/20.


Lastly for the Pokemon world is a future event for a Mega Stone to use alongside a distributed Torchic.
