With a slew of several new mega evolutions being revealed for the upcoming Pokémon remakes Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire for the 3DS, it is no surprise that yet another has been announced. This week the Pokémon Company released their newest mega evolution reveal trailer featuring the water/psychic type Slowbro! It shows the transformation as well as how the mega evolution looks in battle. Some pretty sweet stuff! The trailer for the newest announcement can be seen below.
The Pokémon Company has also given some additional information about the mega evolution saying,
- When Slowbro Mega Evolves into Mega Slowbro, its energy gathers in the Shellder clamped onto its tail. As a result, the hardness of its shell is boosted, making its armor incredibly strong. In battle, Mega Slowbro balances on its tail, wearing Shellder as an impenetrable armor over its body.
- Mega Slowbro has the Shell Armor Ability, meaning opponents can never land a critical hit, making Mega Slowbro a defensive threat in battle. Its Defense and Sp. Attack also increase, making it a great teammate for long battles requiring high endurance.
It certainly looks like a desirable mega evolution one would keep handy in their team both for competitive as well as more casual trainers. We look forward to playing with one and seeing how it goes! Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will be available for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on November 21st, 2014 in North America and is available for pre order in most gaming outlets.
