More like Mega-Gross, am I right? While that term is usually used to describe my laundry basket on a Saturday morning, it looks like Mega-Evolutions are indeed making a splash attack in the Pokémon remakes of Ruby and Sapphire. Hit the jump to see what the heavy metal Pokémon Metagross looks like with some added Darwinism.
Corocoro Magazine via AGB has the screen above you. This is what the usual Metagross looks like, in case you’re interested:
Neat! In the games, Metagross is an absolute bastard to train. Its initial form Beldum only knows Take-Down, which is the equivalent of throwing an anvil at other Pokémon and persevering until it hits lvl 20 and evolves into Metang. From there, things get much easier as players can then evolve their Metang into Metagross at level 45 and enjoy the benefits of having a Steel/Psychic type behemoth in their line-up. I’m still curious to see how Mega-Evolution fits into the narrative of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.
That’s a feat that was considered to be something unheard of in older Pokémon games, so there might be a massive plot hole in this franchise that is all about capturing and enslaving exotic animals for massive cock-fights that are considered to be the norm all over the various regions of the world that then culminate in a grand battle royale with the cream of the crop. On the other hand, whatevs man.
Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire arrives in October on the Nintendo 3DS. As if you didn’t have enough games to choose from already that is.

Well as long as the older Pokemon themselves can Mega-evolve, It could easily be introduced into the story seeing as how they’re no longer using the ring but the bangle, so new item separates it from XY. I guess, if one thinks of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire as re-imaginings rather than straight up remakes, then yeah, it could work as Mega-Evolution was a dormant trait in Pokemon,

Personally I prefer his lvl 30 incarnation of P’tang.

Also, as with all games/shows in this ‘genre’ , love trumps all. Love your pokemon enough and some new power will be unlocked. Believe in the Heart of cards enough and love your Kuribo and you’ll awaken your final form 😛
