Mega Latias and Mega Latios confirmed in Pokemon X and Y?

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.

Mega Latias mega latios

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?

Ultra fake, no megaevolution symbol.
To mega evolve they have have to be trained Pokemon.
2 different Pokemon fighting against a Fennikin with the same stats

The game was hacked to force them to appear that way.

Dragonite

That may be true, but why? Sure doesn’t make them look any more legit than they may or may not.

It does seem to be fake because of the lack of Mega symbols, but it is a back so you never know. I do have my doubts though.

they who hack the game is true. the prove will on someday later.
PROVE FOR HACKER:
1. the diancie is officially released. also on the movie 17.
2. mega latios and latias is officially released. it’s on pokemon oras not xy.
3. there is some people in game that talked about hoopa. also the form of hoopa.
4. …… no proove yet for volcanion.

Guys, i think thats just a hack. its not like u see it in the game. so thats why there is no mega evo symbol or as someone said, battling fennekin with the same stats.

You know that it IS a hack right?

I don’t understand why people are getting upset over the Fennekin having the same stats in both pictures

I think there are more to it that we don’t know. the fact that these are all undisclosed. I’m sure gamefreak plans to use them for events or future movies. Notice how they always release movies and shortly follow up with it ingame for newer pokemon? I take it there’s going to be a movie with Latios and Latias for sure.

You people are fucking retarded. I hate you so much, faggots.
Smea is a well know member of the pokemon hacking community, so if he says it’s real, then it is.

Not saying it isn’t real, but you’re pretty dumb yourself for buying into everything someone says. I think it’s real. But admittedly it’s lacking in information and I can see why someone would think this is fake.

Let’s see… Two Mega Evolutions that, apart from this, we have nothing to confirm or deny, at Level 100 in a place that appears to be Santalune Forest. Being hacked to appear, that doesn’t really help much. The Mega Evolution sign isn’t there, but it could have something to do with Smea hacking them to appear, and that the mega Evolution sequence itself is what causes the sign to appear. And honestly, what reason would Smea have to lie? Having his entire reputation reconsidered by almost everyone and if proven fake losing all of what he worked so hard for?… Read more »

It could be real as we don’t know how good this hacker is and they could have been made to appear like this in the wild like in older games e.g. Deoxys who could appear in any of its forms if using an action replay. Also just because the Fennekin is at level 10 doesn’t mean that the photos are photoshoped. He could have got into the battle and got the picture then turned the 3DS off and rebooted the game so he/she could battle the other one.

Not judging real or fake on this just yet but as I have no prior knowledge of this hacker I have my doubts. My biggest concerns lie in the fact that the sprites for both megas are exactly the same right down to the eye color. I think if they were to get megas, Latias would at least be red and not blue. Also if you look at the Fennekin (not the stats the actual Pokemon) you will see that it is in the EXACT same position for both screen shots as well as the light and background of the… Read more »

Looks more like a strange fusion if you ask me. Red + Blue = Purple, they look very similar etc. (Would also explain why there’s no DNA symbol, though they might still be because they’re hacked in.)

I believe what Smea has posted and that these are real because of as another has said, he’s a well known person in the hacking community and these are good quality pics.

Actually, the latios’ health bar and ground underneath latios have lighting changes.

If they actually do make old gen legends I would love to see lugia have one he was my all time favorite and if he got one tht would be amazing!!!

Looks like a mega evolution fusion type of thing. Its color is purple (red+blue); Just an idea.

ZanTeken145

less mega evolution more like mixed together, maybe something similar to DNA splicers? red+blue = purple and bigger jets. seems like one pulls power from the other and you get this.

Spartan2068

Everyone think about Pokémon which look similar such as Plusle and Minun they look very similar yet they are different Pokémon. It is the same with these Mega Evolutions. Latios and Latias Are very similar but they have different colors for their skin and eyes. It would make sense for them to look similar to each other, but if you look closely you can see the eyes are different as Mega Latias has yellow eyes and Mega Latios has red eyes. Also Mega Latias looks smaller than Mega Latios which is another thing these two have in common with Latios… Read more »

I could believe this possible mega-evolution, or rather another “spliced” pokemon.
Considering Kyurem can combine with either Zekrom or Reshiram, perhaps Latios and Latias can do the same with eachother.
Now, logically Red + Blue = Purple, they are purple.
I do want to propose another theory. This could actually be a new legendary installation, but mistook for mega evolutions. Maybe a 3rd Jet-like legendary.
Sort of like land (Groudon), water (Kyogre), and sky/air (Rayquaza).
This “new” pokemon looks faster and stronger than both Latias and Latios, which could be reason for that theory.
But, what do I know, I’m just a player.

symeon gaweda

i think maybe it us a mega.maybe latios or latias(1 of them) turns into the stone which makes de other mega evolve.maybe it changes the soul dew.this incorporates the idea of bith a mega and fusion in a way

thats posible

I think Mega Genesect is real. If you go to the fossil building with a Genesect, supposably you will get a Genesectite.

I think that maby you have to fuse latios and latias, maby nor not a mega evolution cause there is not a mega sign next to its name. I also think that it is fused because latias is red, latios is blue, so they fuse and become…. you guessed it! purple! Thats why they both look the same. You might also have the choice to have 1 of the 2 to be the dominant one due to their different eye color and names. Due to the domination, the dominant one might have the that specific ability that changed due to… Read more »

They’d better be fake! If Nintendo, Pokemon, AND/OR GameFreak touch my Latias I’m gonna be sooo mad.

Horizon
Guest

It’s interesting how they look so similar.

It’s possibly not a Mega Evolution, and rather a fusion. But maybe it is a Mega Evo. If that’s the case, it is possible that X/Y will be given a patch to make them different colours later, with the purple just being a placeholder for an animated skin or something.

lets hack wif something stupid

another way to tell them apart(megas)is if you say you mega evolve them and they look exactly alike i see comments here who see differences i havent seen this one though:latios has its head up latias is in a dashing look staright forward so thats 1 difference

Dillon
Guest

When you consider pokemon, wild or not, can’t mega evolve on their own, and The fact that our blue and white friend has no mega-evolution symbol leads me to believe that this maybe fake. if there is an item image in-game of either Latiosite or Latiasite (if that is the name of their respective megastones) then the chances of this being true skyrockets. I Guess only time will tell when the pokemon company will feed us starving fanboys more Pokeawesome. (Eggoraptor)

wild pokemon can mega evolve

Something that makes it fake is the gender on both of these screen captures.

umm, its not in the actual story in the game its like and event or somthing.

this is used by hacker so they can found hidden item and pokemon on the game.
well if you want it now you can. it’s on pokemon omega ruby and alpha sapphire! (OR get latios and AS get latias)

Anonymous

Well, since this is a hack, we can’t be sure they are M-Evos yet, since the mega sign only appears when it (the pokemon) mega evolves. It would be wierd if this was actually a buff to SOUL DEW, since that seems like the only valid option other than the mega sign not appearing if a wild one appears. Consider the possibilities to Soul Dew.

how could it mega evolve when Smea is versing it?????

How the hell would Mega Kyogre, Mega Groudon and Mega Rayquaza be stupid? Those would awesome. What do you think is a good idea? Mega Deoxys and Genesect. Y’know, Deoxys, the guy who already has 4 forms? And Mega Genesect is just… No.

yay they all are real! (groudon kyogre and rayquaza) but groudon and kyogre has primal reversion instead of mega evolution

when 1 mega evolve of legendary is released so long not meaning there will no mega evolved legendary again.

Johnny2071

The question now is, should I migrate my Latias or Latios over to Kalos? Since they have been given Mega Evolutions, it is likely that there will be event releases for the two, with Mega Stones attached to them.

moshi moshling fan

there is latias and latios on pokemon oras now. or= latios as= latias. so migrate your latias to omega ruby or migrate your latios to alpha sapphire

Johnny2071

I refuse to buy ORAS. Just like I refuse to buy Pokemon Yellow, Crystal, FireRed/LeafGreen, Emerald, Platinum, HGSS, and B2W2. It would just revolve around collecting all the same Pokemon all over again in the same generation.

Yo mama
Guest

It could be a new pokemon entirely,I remember a while ago we heard pokemon was gonna add a pokemon called gale,and it would become a latios/latias type pokemon,maybe they protected it from hackers to make it look like a mega of latios & latias,then bam,a green and gold super strong pokemon called gale gets released in a new update

AlphaGiratina
Guest

Im pretty convinced its real. If you look reeeeeally closely, Latias’s eyes are yellow while Latios’s are red. This takes away the argument of their same design implicating fakeness. Plus, there have been numerous videos made with them alongside Diance and Eternal Form Floette, and they look pretty legit in them. Both Diancie and Floette-E were released. Coincidence? (Heres a link btw) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nz09g6mqnk8

Plus Latios is my 3rd favorite Pokemon. This would be the coolest mega in my opinion if it was legit. Please be legit.

Yeah… True probably and fake probably… There´s two opinions: True: Because Nintendo actually has said that latios and latias would have their mega evolutions, and because I´ve actually battle a guy using a mega latios (it is green) and, really, it isn´t that powerfull (it was 100% hp and my darkrai used dark pulse and its KO). Fake: Because the Nintendo website wasn´t saying that in the last update a new mega evolution would appear, they even talk about it, they even talk about a NEW THING (like items…) on the update.
