Mega Charizard X in the Pokémon anime

Mega Evolutions are set to appear in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, making this the first time that these specific Pokémon evolution stages will make an appearance in a Kanto region game.

The news comes from early CoroCoro magazine scans shared by; as you can see below, images of Venusaur, Charizard, and Blastoise's mega evolutions are shown with each Pokémon being used in battle.

Serebii notes that this new scan confirms that these evolutions will once again activate when you have the appropriate Key Stone, as well as the Pokémon's associated Mega Stone. Just last week, a new line of figures for these Pokémon were also announced, causing rumours to circulate around their appearance in the new games. As it turns out, of course, these assumptions have now turned out to be true.

We expect lots more news surrounding the new Pokémon titles to appear over the next couple of months as we near the release date, so make sure to keep checking back for more. Until then, though, let us know if you're happy to see the return of mega evolutions in the comments below.
