Double team

It was recently revealed that Pokémon favourite Charizard can "Mega Evolve" into Mega Charizard in Pokémon X & Y — a more powerful variant of the existing monster which is incredibly adept in battle.

However, today it has been announced that Charizard actually has two Mega Evolved forms: Mega Charizard X and Mega Charizard Y. The transformation depends on which Mega Stone Charizard obtains — Charizardite X or Charizardite Y.

The previously-revealed Mega Charizard was in fact Mega Charizard Y. Mega Charizard X is a bit special, as its skin takes on a black hue, its flames turn blue and it becomes a Fire and Dragon-type Pokémon. Exciting stuff indeed.

Both Mega Charizard Y and Mega Charizard X possess some amazing moves — the latter can learn Dragon Tail, which allows it to push a rival Pokémon out of the battle and deal a large amount of damage.

Pokémon X & Y is released worldwide this month.
