Earlier this week a premature post on the official Korean website for Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire leaked Mega Slowbro and Mega Audino for the upcoming releases. The Pokémon Company has now taken the opportunity at Gamescom to reveal some official details and footage of Mega Audino, providing formal confirmation of much of the information that previously came out.
Below is an excerpt from the press release outlining some key facts around Mega Audino.
Audino was not known to evolve from, or to, any other form, so this is an interesting twist in the mysterious story of Mega Evolution.
Before Mega Evolving, Audino is known to use the feelers on its ears to tell how others are feeling or when a Pokémon Egg might hatch. It may have either the Healer Ability or the Regenerator Ability. After Mega Evolving, Mega Audino adds Fairy-type to its Normal-type, automatically gaining all the advantages of a Fairy-type Pokémon. Mega Audino also always has the Healer Ability.
Thanks to its improved Defense and Special Defense stats, Mega Audino can be a great support in Double Battles.
In addition we have a new trailer and some assets showing off the new Mega Evolution, so check them out and let us know what you think.
