Images of pages from CoroCoro Comics magazine have surfaced, revealing much new information. A new process called "Mega Evolution" has been confirmed for Pokémon X and Y, and three new Pokémon have been revealed.

The new Mega Evolutions

The new process called "Mega Evolution" allows a Pokémon to change into a "mega" version of itself, with the previously revealed Awakened Form Mewtwo being confirmed as MegaMewtwo. Pokémon confirmed to be capable of undergoing Mega Evolution are Mewtwo, Ampharos, Blaziken, Mawile and Absol.

From October 12, 2013 to January 15, 2014, a Torchic will be distributed over the internet holding an item called "Blaziken Knight", which allows Blaziken 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:

Me'ēkuru (メエークル) is the pre-evolution of Gogoat. It is 0.9 m tall and weighs 31.0 kg.

Dedenne (デデンネ) the Antenna Pokémon (アンテナポケモン), is an Electric/Fairy-type Pokémon. It is 0.2 m tall and weighs 2.2 kg. It has the Ability Pickup and a new Ability called Cheek Pouches (ほおぶくろ).

Horubī (ホルビー), the Burrowing Pokémon (あなほりポケモン), is a Normal-type Pokémon. It is 0.4 m tall and weighs 5.0 kg. It has the Ability Pickup and a new Ability called Cheek Pouches (ほおぶくろ). It is similar in appearance to Tappy from Game Freak's HarmoKnight.
