With the release of Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire now just one month away, The Pokémon Company is stepping up its efforts to build hype for the new titles. It's doing this primarily through Mega Evolution announcements, of course, and another two have been confirmed.
This time around we have Mega Steelix and Mega Glalie joining the cast in the new games. You can see their descriptions from the press release below.
Steelix, the Steel- and Ground-type Pokémon who evolves from Onyx, can Mega Evolve into Mega Steelix, which raises its Defense stat greatly and gives it the Steel-type move, Iron Tail. Iron Tail is most destructive during a sandstorm, thanks to its Sand Force Ability, which increases the power of Rock-, Ground-, and Steel-type moves by 30% during the sandstorm weather condition.
Glalie, the Ice-type Pokémon, can Mega Evolve into Mega Glalie, raising its Speed and significantly raising its Attack and Special Attack. Upon Mega Evolving, it gains the Ability, Refrigerate, which makes Normal-type moves into Ice-type moves. It also gains the Ice-type move, Sheer Cold, which can knock a target out in one blow!
The list of Mega 'mon is certainly getting longer. Let us know what you think of this announcement, while you can check out the official artwork and screens below.
