Details on Mega Pokémon are still scarce, although we know that it is a new process of evolution called "Mega Evolution", with the previously revealed Awakened Form {{bp|Mewtwo}} forme finally being confirmed as MegaMewtwo. Pokémon revealed to be obtaining new "Mega forms" are {{bp|Mewtwo}}, {{bp|Ampharos}}, {{bp|Blaziken}}, {{bp|Mawile}} and {{bp|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 {{bp|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 {{bp|Huge Power}}, MegaBlaziken has {{bp|Speed Boost}}, MegaLucario's ability is {{bp|Adaptability}} and MegaAbsol's ability is {{bp|Magic Bounce}}.
