Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire‘s Mega Beedrill is the stuff nightmares are made out of.
As if Pokemon‘s Beedrill, the giant hornet Pokemon that is based on Japan’s real-life giant hornet, wasn’t terrifying enough, now they’ve gone and given him a mega evolution. Beedrill, along with Flying-type Pidgeot, are the latest to get the mega evolution treatment for the upcoming Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire, as revealed by Poke beach via this month’s Coro Coro magazine.
Check them out, along with the long-rumored Mega Latios/Latias below:
Mega Beedrill is Bug / Poison and its Ability is Adaptability. Its Attack, Speed and nightmare-inducing ability increase. Mega Pidgeot is Normal / Flying and its Ability is No Guard. Its Special Attack increases. What’s interesting about Mega Latios and Latias as that unlike their normal forms, which are blue and red respectively, both Mega Evolutions look almost identical, and are purple.
Like in the original Ruby and Sapphire games, Latios is obtainable in Omega Ruby while Latias is in Alpha Sapphire. Also like the originals, CoroCoro will be giving away a serial code to obtain the Eon Ticket, which allows you to travel to Southern Island to catch the opposite version’s Pokemon.
Lastly, a new Eon Flute item allows you to fly over Hoenn on the backs of Mega Latios and Mega Latias. You can freely turn and accelerate the Pokemon like planes. You will then be able to encounter Dialga, Palkia, Reshiram, Zekrom, and other wild legendary Pokemon in Hoenn’s clouds as well as on islands that can only be reached through this method of flight.
