It was first leaked on Tuesday that Audino would be recieving the Mega Evolution treatment next in Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire. The announcement came as a result of an official Korean Nintendo site accidentally posting the evolution. The implication was that an official announcement had to be just days away. That's now been confirmed, as Nintendo and Game Freak have released an official trailer showing Audino's Mega Evolution.
The trailer comes as a part of Nintendo's Gamescom presentation, where Junichi Masuda was giving a presentation at the convention. Masuda was a programmer on the original Pokemon games in the mid-90s, and a Nintendo composer all the way back into the late 80s. While the content of his presentation, likely a Q&A for the convention audience wasn't revealed, his surprise trailer has been pushed online to the official Nintendo Youtube channel.
Two fingers to the Key Stone in the Mega Ring bracelet on her wrist and Audino evolves into the adorable Mega Audino, a Normal/Fairy-type Pokemon described as a Healer:
"Mega Audino emits a soothing pulse from its body that reduces hostility in others. This powerful pulse calms any who come in range. Additionally, any creature that happens to come in contact with its second feelers will fall into a deep sleep.
When it Mega Evolves, this Pokémon gains the Fairy type. It has the Healer Ability regardless of what its Ability was prior to Mega Evolving. Its Defense and Sp. Defense are both improved, making it a good supporter in Double Battles and the like."
Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire will be released on Nintendo 3DS starting November 21. When does Mega Slobro get his own trailer?
