I'm more excited for the mention of "more Pokemon in Hoenn than there were before". This is the kind of announcement I've been hoping for for this game, Hoenn really needs a dex upgrade. Faith in this game restored.

If it's just some evolutions (Roserade, Gallade, etc.) of existing Hoenn Pokémon, that would make sense. As long as they're not going to dump half the existing Pokémon in the region and create another 300+ Pokédex.

I think 250-300 would be a reasonable dex size for this game, in that range there'd be enough Pokemon to solve the variety problems of the originals and at the same time, the 3rd gen Pokemon won't be overshadowed by the others. Just sticking with the cross gen evos wouldn't really help things that much, because the smaller dex size causes problems in the trainer rosters and the distribution that can't be solved without adding new families that weren't in the original Hoenn Dex (examples: giving Phoebe and Glacia enough Ghost and Ice types to form a decent team, putting more Pokemon in the water routes so we encounter more than just Tentacool and Wingull in the entire last quarter of the game).

The Pikachu is interesting though, look at its tail, male nor female Pikachu have a black heart-shaped tail. It seems a special Pikachu.

Also, first non-Hoenn Pokémon confirmed; Dusknoir. Phoebe seems to own one.

Every month, on the 15th day. The leaks usually start around the 10th or 11th day.

Absol was Sidney's main before and now it's randomly Shiftry. Absol already has a mega so why would they change that? I think it's safe to say he's getting one.

Phoebe using a Dusknoir is even more good news for dex expansions, I can't wait to see who else is in the Hoenn Dex.

Also, I don't really like Brawly's new design, he doesn't really look like a surfer anymore. Most of the others are more or less the same with slightly different outfits. And those Pikachu forms look really gimmicky and stupid.

+1 It's those sort of things that make pokemon seem horribly childish.

Nonetheless.. if mega shiftry is confirmed so is ludicolo.

Mirror B will now be one major threat :D

Well, Dusclops is a Hoenn Pokémon, so it's only logical Dusknoir would in it this time as well.

Well, Charizard got two Mega Evolutions, Venusaur and Blastoise didn't. Blaziken got one before Sceptile and Swampert got one, Mawile before Sableye. Banette and Abomasnow have one, Dusclops (Dusknoir) and Hippowdon don't. Oh don't forget about Gardevoir, Gallade doesn't have a Mega Evolution either, same story for Gyarados and Milotic. It's likely, but Mega Evolutions seem a little random sometimes.

I'm just wondering how many mega evolutions they're trying to give us.. we already have alot of hoenn ones!

Sceptile, blaziken, swampert, medicham, manetric, aggron, gardevoir, mawile, latios, latias, absol, banette, metagross, sableye.. that's already 14 megas in hoenn alone! And we're not done yet as it seems all elite four members will have a mega.. even if there are no new ones, sidney got absol, phoebe got banette or sableye..

I'm hoping drake gets mega flygon and not salamence.. salamence already was near broken last few gens.

Glacia.. I'm calling mega glalie for her or maybe walrein. Just makes sense to give glalie a mega with froslass being in exsistance.. (They'll be trolls and just give her abomasnow..)

Maybe like above said.. dusknoir might not get a mega.. and it would make sense as you have mega banette because banette never got a third evolution.. dusnoir on the other hand is a third evolution so it's kinda balanced out.

Yeah, but there was nothing that specifically required him to be in the dex. Look back at HGSS, they only included 5 of the 4th gen evos (Ambipom, Yanmega, Mamoswine, Tangrowth, and Lickilicky), and those were only the move based evolutions that couldn't be restricted easily. Most of the Pokemon that evolved/bred by items simply saw their items restricted to post game, and the ones that evolved by locations had their locations made unavailable in the game. None of the cross gen evos in the original Hoenn Dex are of the move based variety, so they could've easily just restricted them as well.

True.

Speaking of which, ORAS has been doing a lot of balancing to XY's Mega choices, they gave Sceptile, Swampert, and Sableye Megas to complement Blaziken and Mawile. And now that Gallade is pratically confirmed, I could definitely see him getting one as well.

Also, Gyaraods and Milotic were never considered a true pair, and Abomasnow and Hippowdon have nothing to do with each other.

Gyarados and milotic are a pair because they both start out as useless ugley fishes.. and then both evolve into amazing, beautiful creatures.

Hippodon and abomasnow are parral in the fact one has sand stream while the other has snow warning.

But mega hippowdon would be saved for gen 4 remakes anyway. I'm thinking the same for gallade, and come on.. I think it's been confirmed by it's name alone yanmega will get a mega evolution that gen as well. Actually not bad.. as it can speed boost nonmega and maybe mega for tinted lens with an increased SpA..

Dusknoir didn't get a mega like banette because banette and dusclops were appost to be parral to each other.. and then gen 4 came and gave dusclops a new evolution and not banette.. the solution this gen was to just give banette a mega to make up for that loss of third evolution.

I'm just hoping diancie won't be the only gen 6 pokemon mega evolution when Z is announced.. then again I just cannot picture mega greninja.. not even a design for it comes to mind.

Reguardless..

Unless it's flygon, milotic, ralicanth, shiftry, ludicolo, tropius, walrein, or glalie.. we don't really need any more megas for gen 3. Those are the only ones who'd kill for a mega evolution.. and in fans case, would kill for mega flygon and milotic.

Lol, mega chimecho maybe?

So? Generations do this all the time. I can name several 5th gen Pokemon that are parallels to other. That doesn't make them a pair, they've never been associated with each other.

Again, never been associated with each other.

Hippowdon I can see. Gallade though? It's practically confirmed to be a Hoenn Dex Pokemon, and the rest of its family is 3rd gen, so I could definitely see it having one in ORAS.

Going by Game Freak's standards for deciding who gets Megas (that is, they prefer to give them to Pokemon that are popular or cool looking), it's highly likely Salamence will get one. I can probably think of a zillion others that they would give Megas (Altaria, the fossils, Sharpedo, Camerupt). Sadly, they don't prioritize giving Megas to weaker Pokemon that need them, so I don't think we'll see stuff like Relicanth, Tropius, and Walrein get them. I think Milotic, Flygon, and Glalie are likely candidates, though.
