We first gave you the rundown on the latest Pokemon 2014 remakes, Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire here. Now, scans from a Pokemon website reveal that Mudkip and Treecko will be having their very own Mega Evolutions in the upcoming games. Not only that, Groudon and Kyogre will also be getting new forms in both versions of Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire.
According to the source, Treecko?s mega evolution is called Mega Sceptile and it is a Dragon/Grass type Pokemon that will have the ?Lightning Rod? ability. Mudkip?s mega evolution is called Mega Swampert and it will retain the Pokemon?s type, but will have an ability called ?Swift Swim?. Suffice to say, these two new mega evolutions should be both huge and awesome.
Groudon and Kyogre?s new forms are also mega evolutions, but it?s also a bit different from Teecko?s or Mudkip?s. Their new forms are technically called ?Ancient Devolution? but that could still be subject to change as the source is a Japanese website and the translation may be slightly off or there could be a better translation when the games get released. The new forms that these two legendary Pokemon will be sporting will have some sort of prehistoric relevance, which explains why the box art illustrations were slightly different from their normal looks. The term ?Ancient Devolution? could also make sense if we are referring to ancient history. In the prehistoric times, animals (think dinosaurs or megalodons), were huge in size and evolution forced these animals to get smaller so they could better survive. One theory is that both Groudon and Kyogre follow this same pattern and their ?devolution? actually returns them to their original humongous sizes.
Part of the story remake will circle around a character that tries to dig into mega evolutions. Details for that are still scarce, though.
Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire are both slated to be released this coming November 2014.
