That CoroCoro magazine from Japan is at it again, leaking another Mega Evolution for the upcoming Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire releases. I'm almost of the belief that Pokemon might not exist at all if it hadn't been for CoroCoro leaking first. Let's take a moment and introduce everyone to Mega Metagross. While Mega Metagross' typing has note been revealed (or maybe just not translated), odds are it will retain the Steel/Psychic type of its pre-evolution.
It wouldn't be a Mega Metagross reveal if it wasn't tied to Metagross' biggest fan and most prolific trainer, Steven. Steven is the Pokemon League champion in the original Pokemon Ruby and Pokemon Sapphire, a Steel-type user by trade. In Pokemon Emerald he leaves his post to wander the region, but his faithful Metagross continues to follow at his side. Will Steven be reigning Champion once more? It seems more likely that he'll play the role of introducing the player to Mega Evolution.
Let's hope there are more secrets to be found in this latest issue of CoroCoro and that the leaks just haven't come around yet. I'd love to have another two or three Megas to add to the list. We've already had the starters, Sceptile, Swampert and Blaziken go Mega. Diancie is on the list too, followed by Sableye in early June. Groudon and Kyogre might be something different altogether, and now Metagross? You know Game Freak's got more in store.
Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire are planned for release exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS starting November 21.
