Mega Evolution

Besides regular evolution being in the game, one of the newer mechanics to Pokemon will also feature.

Mega Evolution is a temporary transformation affecting Pokémon that was introduced in Generation VI (Pokemon X and Y).

Traditionally in the Pokemon games, in order to Mega Evolve, most Pokémon must be holding their appropriate Mega Stone and the Trainer must have a Key Stone.

Without this, it raises questions as to how Mega Evolution works - but nonetheless, it is definitely a thing in this game.

Details around mega evolution are rather scarce at this time, however, we do know that it is related to the 'Awakening' mechanic (first introduced during Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon).

When you eat an Empowerment Seed, your Pokémon will get into the Awakened State. This powers up the Pokémon and causes Linked Moves to always Critical Hit and ignore abilities and type disadvantages - this will also allow for Pokémon to Mega Evolve.

Although there are reportedly over 400 Pokemon in this new game's Pokedex, only a select number can mega evolve.
