This week’s Corocoro scans brought with it the next few megas that will accompany the release of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire and boy, are they a doozy.
Mega Altaria (i.e. PowderPuff Girl): This is ridiculous…ly cute! This has got to be one of my favourite Mega design yet, right up there with the similarly-fabulous Ampharos. Plus, I think that Altaria is one of those that really deserves the Mega update, having always been middling despite its dragon type.
Mega Lopunny (i.e. Rab-unzel): I am pretty sure no one saw this coming. This gives me hope that my personal early-game-normal-type-filler faves Raticate and Furret will one day get ramped up too. Or, dare I say it, Dunsparce?!
Mega Salamence (i.e. Batplane) [feat. shiny Mega Metagross i.e. Taking Sharp Chins to the Next Level]: Salamence’s new form(e?) isn’t surprising since both Tyranitar and Garchomp have undergone the Big M treatment. Still, I really don’t see the point in giving an unnecessary boost to Pokémon who really don’t need that extra oomph. The same goes for already-spoiled Mega Metagross (Megagross?), although I wouldn’t say no to that fancy shiny version they’re going to be giving out at an event.
