As emailed to me on the closing day of E3 on Thursday, June 12, The Nintendo Company has unveiled new gameplay footage of the forthcoming Pokémon third generation remakes Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.
In addition to the gameplay, further information was also revealed on three new pokémon Mega Evolutions: Mega Sceptile, Mega Swampert and Mega Blaziken. The details on these Mega Evolutions have been listed below.
Mega Sceptile gains the Dragon type through Mega Evolution, making its Dragon-type moves more powerful. It also gains the Lightning Rod Ability, which absorbs the damage from Electric-type moves to raise its own Special Attack.
- Through Mega Evolution, Mega Swampert gains an improved Attack stat which makes it even more formidable when using the Fighting-type move Hammer Arm. Additionally, Mega Swampert gains the Swift Swim Ability, which doubles its Speed when the weather is rainy.
Mega Blaziken, first discovered in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, gains some new tools through Mega Evolution, in addition to its increased Attack. It has the Speed Boost Ability, making it faster with each passing turn, making the incredibly powerful Flying-type move Brave Bird, extremely rare for a non-Flying-type Pokémon like Blaziken to have, even fiercer in Pokémon battles.
In order to access a pokémon’s Mega Evolution, you’ll first need to obtain a Mega Bracelet set with a Key Stone. With this Key Stone, along with a pokémon’s respective Mega Stone, you’ll be able to allow your pokémon to transform into its Mega Evolution.
Be sure to check out the new gameplay footage via the embedded video below.
