Mega Evolution

Main article: Mega Evolution

Pokémon X and Y introduced a special type of evolution, called Mega Evolution. Mega Evolution is a temporary evolution that can be initiated in battle if the Pokémon is holding the Mega Stone for its species; however only select Pokémon can undergo Mega Evolution. It can be triggered in battle before attacking, and it allows the Pokémon to attack after undergoing Mega Evolution. Only one Pokémon per team per battle can undergo Mega Evolution, and any Pokémon in their Mega Evolution form revert to their normal form. Mega Evolution powers up some of the Pokémon's stats, and sometimes lowers some of them. Mega Evolution will end after the battle.
