With every new Poke’mon release (and re-release) we now have the awesome feature of Mega-Evolutions, with more available with every 3DS adventure. Being that only a select few poke’mon possess that ability, it makes some stand out above the rest. Here are our top 5 mega-evolutions from Poke’mon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.
Mega Swampert – When holding a mega stone, Swampert upgrades its “cool factor” to turn into Brock Lesnar. Mega Swampert looks like it’s begging for a fight and whoever’s on the receiving end of its Hammer Arm is not getting up any time soon. Despite its awesome looks and newfound aggression, we are a little peeved that Mega Swampert does not learn F-5.
Mega Steelix – When mega evolved, Steelix grows armlike appendages and has an aura of metal constructs floating around him ala Magneto. This thing looks like an angry Imperial fleet and possibly could take on the Death Star.
Mega Salamence- While the appearance change is not too drastic, Mega Salamence’s wingspan has become larger and it is now topped off with a shell-based armor around its body. It’s the batplane on steroids and we raucously approve.
Mega Sceptile- Eat your hearts out, turtles. Mega Sceptile completes the reptilian ninja look and fuses it with a Stegosaur-oriented tree tail. Speaking of tree tails, Mega Sceptile’s gives it the lightningrod ability; rendering electric-type attacks completely useless. Well played Mega Sceptile, well played.
Mega Rayquaza – This is no dragon, but a remorseless killing machine. Mega Rayquaza is given a slew of new armor, complete with overlord helmet. The legendary poke’mon is now even more a force to be reckoned with as sparks generate from its hulking body.
