Don’t take these as real just yet (it’s just a rumour so far), but it seems like there’s now a chance that Latias and Latios could well get Mega Evolved forms in Pokemon X and Y. Yep, the same hacker who supposedly leaked the three event legendaries for this gen also used hacks to make Latias and Latios appear in Mega Form in the game, resulting in some interesting forms you can see below.
As you can see, they both pretty much like identical (which makes me question the legitimacy here), but hey, I guess it could be real. They are members of a legendary duo after all, and very similar in their base designs to boot.
But what’s really interesting is what this implies if the screens are real.
Namely that Pokemon not available in X and Y as is might be able to Mega Evolve with as of yet unfound Mega Stones. And that powerful legendaries other than Mewtwo might also have Mega Evolutions to discover. It makes me wonder what else might be lurking around in here, like a Mega Mew or a Mega Deoxys or Mega Genesect or even something stupid like Mega Kyogre or Mega Rayquaza. Could we see many of the old gen legends get new forms that push them even further into ‘gamebreaker’ territory?
But what do you think? Are these pictures real? Do Latios and Latias really have Mega Evos? And if so, what other old school legends will get the same?
