The information has not been officially announced by the Pokémon Company, but screenshots were leaked on the Pokémon Korea website. The images show two new Mega Evolutions coming to Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby. Slowbro and Audino both have seemingly official artwork showing off their new looks.
Slowbro gains the Shell Armor ability which prevents opponents from landing critical hits. Its Defense and Special Attack stats gain massive boosts from the Shellder that has consumed its body. Slowbro were already built like a tank, but now it’s more like an impenetrable moving castle. Audino turns into a Normal/Fairy-type like Jigglypuff and keeps its Healer ability. Both defensive stats increase making it pretty helpful in Double Battles. Audino is the first Pokémon from Gen V to go Mega, so there may be more on the way.
The images and details have since been removed from the website. You can check out what we could scrounge up below. There’s been a lot of new information coming out lately, months before the game’s upcoming release. We’re excited to see what’s next.
