With only ten days left until the global release of PokÃ©mon X and PokÃ©mon Y, a second Mega Evolution has been revealed for the starter PokÃ©mon Charizard called Mega Charizard X. With this being the second instance of a PokÃ©mon having version-specific Mega Evolutions, it is very possible that there will be many more PokÃ©mon that will follow this suit.
Unlike Mega Charizard Y, Mega Charizard X has ditched the yellow and orange color scheme for dark black and lots of blue. His wings are also noticeably smaller and have a more "feathery" appearance. With blue flames spilling from the sides of his mouth and spiked shoulders, Mega Charizard X will also change from a Fire/Flying type to a Fire/Dragon type. And while his species remains as a Flame PokÃ©mon, his ability will change from Blaze to Tough Claws which increases the power of moves that involve direct contact. He will also be able to use the move Dragon Tail which not only forces a PokÃ©mon to switch out, but it will also damage them.
While more evolutions are a great addition to any PokÃ©mon title, perhaps the greatest news to come from this announcement is what was not spoken. Not only does the possibility exist for all of the PokÃ©mon in PokÃ©mon X and Y to have multiple Mega Evolutions, but perhaps for the first time ever choosing which version of a PokÃ©mon game to play will actually impact the experience beyond catching one or two exclusive Legendary PokÃ©mon.
PokÃ©mon X and PokÃ©mon Y will release simultaneously across the globe on October 12 on the Nintendo 3DS.
