Charizard X

You thought the original Charizard Mega-Evolution was badass in a recent Pokémon X and Y announcement? Well guess what? THAT’S NOT EVEN MY FINAL FORM!

I’ve got to hand it to GameFreak, because they know how to ring every single possible dollar from their franchise. Charizard is getting not one, but two mega-evolutions, depending on which Pokémon game you buy this month.

Pokémon X gets you Mega Charizard X, Pokémon Y gets you Mega Charizard Y and Nintendo gets to swim in a ocean of cash. So what’s the big difference in Charizards? Well, a dose of Charizardite X grants your pokemon the ability to power up into a black-skinned nightmare lizard that puffs blue flames and become a Fire-Dragon type. It also gains an attack boost, and the Tough Claws ability which is essentially a Poké-klap buff.

Mega Charizard Y on the other hand, gets a special attack boost when exposed to Charizardite Y and it gains the ability of Drought, which powers up fire type moves even more. By now, I’m expecting anyone who has read this and doesn’t happen to be a Pokémon fan to be rolling their eyes out of their heads right now.

As for the rest of you, you’re seriously considering buying both versions of the game, aren’t you?

  1. Hmm … I’ll buy version Y by the looks of it… that Charizard looks better IMO

    Unless … unless Pokemon X has a Dragonite and/or Snorlax Mega Evolution that either Poke Y doesn’t have, or is way cooler than 😀

      Y looks better and more true to original Chairzard.

            Hows about I sing you a song?

            I want to be the very best,
            Like no one ever was.
            To catch them is my real test,
            To train them is my cause.
            I will travel across the land,
            Searching far and wide.
            Teach Pokemon to understand
            The power that’s inside
            Pokemon, (gotta catch them all) its you and me
            I know its my destiny
            Pokemon, oh, you’re my best friend
            In a world we must defend
            Pokemon, (gotta catch them all) a heart so true
            Our courage will pull us through
            You teach me and I’ll teach you
            Po-ke-mon, gotta catch ’em all
            Every challenge along the way
            With courage I will face
            I will battle every day
            To claim my rightful place
            Come with me, the time is right
            There’s no better team
            Arm in arm we’ll win the fight
            It’s always been our dream
            Pokemon!
            (Gotta catch ’em all)
            It’s you and me
            I know it’s my destiny
            Pokemon!
            Oh, your my best friend,
            In a world we must defend.
            Pokemon!
            A heart so true.
            Our courage will pull us through.
            You teach me and I’ll teach you.
            Pokemon!
            (Gotta catch ’em all)x5
            Yeah!
            Pokemon!
            It’s you and me
            I know it’s my destiny

      Seriously what is your problem? If you don’t like the game, that’s your opinion. No need for you to spew rubbish and troll on an article where other people are calmly expressing views and opinions on the new Pokemon game. Some people like it, some people don’t. How can you hate people you don’t even know? Stop acting like an immature child and go find something more useful to fill your time with.
