Mega Audino Confirmed with New Pokémon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby Trailer

Only a couple of days ago, two new Mega Evolution Pokémon were accidentally leaked. Now, it’s been made official by the Pokémon Company International that Audino will indeed go Mega. It’s been depicted as a nurse in the games as well as the anime and in its Mega Evolution form looks even more like one. They listen closely to Pokémon Eggs to tell when they will hatch and they also have the Healer and Regenerator abilities. Mega Audino become Normal/Fairy which gives it resistance to Fighting-type attacks but it then gains two weaknesses in Steel and Poison.

Wild Audino are able to give an extremely high amount of experience points. Ones that have been trained can yield as much as 50,000 points. Now, with the comeback of secret bases, one could battle against Mega Audino and potentially receive double that amount if done correctly. There’s currently no confirmation of how much experience a Mega Evolved Pokémon can give since there’s many variables that factor into your experience. It will certainly be interesting to see.

The Mega Audino announcement was confirmed at Gamescom 2014 with the video you can watch below. But along with the leak came Mega Slowbro and there has yet to be any confirmation for the Pokémon. Time will tell as we get closer to the release of Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby.
