Details on Mega Pokémon are still scarce, although we know that it is a new process called "Mega Evolution", with the previously revealed Awakened Form Mewtwo finally being confirmed as MegaMewtwo. Pokémon revealed to be obtaining new "Mega forms" are Mewtwo, Ampharos, Blaziken, Mawile and Absol. The method of obtaining them is also unknown at this point, although the first SpotPass event for the new games has been announced. From 12th October until 15th January, a Torchic will be distributed holding an item known as "Blaziken Knight", with this Torchic having the ability to become a MegaBlaziken. A mysterious item known as a "Mega Stone" was mentioned, but what role it or the Blaziken Knight item hold in obtaining a MegaPokémon is currently unknown.

Mawile has been confirmed to be retconned to a Steel/Fairy-type, with MegaMawile also having the type combination. MegaMawile has the ability Huge Power, MegaBlaziken has Speed Boost, MegaLucario's ability is Adaptability and MegaAbsol's ability is Magic Bounce.

Aside from Mega Evolutions, we also have three new species of Pokémon revealed:
