Those familiar with the Digimon anime probably saw the title of this article and thought, “wait, WHAT?” Let’s get this explained to end the confusion here and now.

Today, the latest CoroCoro, a gaming magazine that releases once a month in Japan, leaked, and with the leak came some pretty big, and surprising Pokémon news. Eight Pokémon from previous generations will be getting new forms called Mega.  These forms are triggered using a Mega Stone, and from the looks of it, won’t trigger until the Pokémon is in it current final form. The Pokémon getting the Mega treatment are Blaziken, Absol, Mawile, Mewtwo (the announced new form is his Mega Form), Lucario and Ampharos.

While smaller, the new leak also included details on a new gym leader. Her name is Koruni and she has information regarding Mega Pokémon. She will also be the first ever Dark-type gym leader in franchise history, as all previous dark bosses have been elite four members. Three new Pokémon have also been shown in the leak, a pre-evoloution for Gogoat called Meekuru, a Electric/Fairy type mouse called Dedenne, and a Normal rabbit Pokémon called Horubii.

Catch all the images of the magazine below. Are you looking forward to this new kind of Pokémon? I think it fantastic to see Gamefreak mixing up the Pokémon formula, and taking quite a few risks this generation. Be ready for Pokémon X & Y when they arrive on October 12th worldwide.
