Pokémon’s newest Mega Evolution debuts in an upcoming anime

2 min read


I’ve spoken before but how much of a game-changer mega-evolutions were to Pokémon. Now, I’m going to speak about it some more and don’t bother trying to escape, I locked the door and laced the biscuits with paralysing chemicals. Now then, mega-evolutions aren’t just cosmetic changes to your Pokémon. They’re stat-boosting transformations that can give you the edge in battle. And of course, another starter Pokémon is getting one.

And that starter is none other than Sceptile. Which makes perfect sense really. In Pokémon X and Y, each of the three original starter Pokémon had a mega evolution, with Charizard having access to not one but two such boosts. If you got the game early enough, there was also a chance to download a Torchic that came equipped with the stone necessary to mega-evolve into such an advanced creature, once it evolved into its final form, Blaziken.

Sceptile is next, and will be making it’s mega-evolved debut in “Pokémon Mega Evolution ~Act 2~” according to Serebii, on November 6. This follows the first such anime special, which focused on a Pokémon trainer named Alan who roamed the countryside catching the pocket monsters, battling them and steering clear of the PETA loonies who threatened to burn his house down. Sceptile isn’t the only Pokemon getting a Darwinian upgrade however. Swampert also evolves further, joining the likes of Slowbro, Audino,Lopunny,Altaria,Salamence, Sableye and Diancie who are all going mega.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    Dude, 9PM? Really? Who do you think is going to be awake at 9PM to read this?

      “Dude, 9PM? Really? Who do you think is going to be awake at 9PM to read this?”

      Well, basically, anyone over the age of 12 will be up to read it or they can read it the next day. Seriously… did you you just comment to criticize the author’s choice of time to post the article? If so, you need to get a life, sir.

        I am trolling Darryn as we regularly do. It’s all part of the running joke of making Brenda’s (Darryn’s) life miserable *That’s a joke*

        There is no criticism at all. You are reading waaaaaaay to much in to it.

        I understand that it would appear as insulting and criticising for anyone who isn’t part of the regular crowd so just know it’s just part of the running jokes we always level at Brenda (Darryn). 🙂

          Oh… Well, damn. Retracted then LMFAO.
