Mega Steelix and Mega Glalie revealed!


The Mega Evolution train doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon, as we have two brand new additions, as revealed in the newly-released demo for Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. The demos, which are currently NOT playable in North America, feature both Mega Steelix and Mega Glalie. This brings our total number of generations represented by new evolutions up to five, including a Pokemon from every single gen except for the recent Generation VI. Hit the jump to learn what little we know currently about the rock-hard Steelix and the ice-cold Glalie, and I’ll be sure to update as we get more info.

#208 – Steelix
Type – Presumably Steel/Ground
Ability – Sand Force
Stat Differences – Currently Unknown

First Impressions: Already a defensive stalwart, Steelix would be down-right terrifying from a defensive standpoint if it got an equally insane special defense boost to compliment its already amazing physical defense. Sand Force, boosting the power of Ground, Rock, and Steel attacks while under the sand, will make Steelix much more pronounced on the offensive side of the field as well. I can already see Mega Steelix being the perfect compliment for sand teams featuring Tyranitar.

#362 – Glalie
Type – Ice
Ability – Refridgerate
Stat Differences – Currently Unknown

First Impressions: It’s no secret that Glalie is less than effective on the competitive scene, with its other evolution Froslass being much more prominent. With proper boosts to either its attack/special attack and speed, Refrigerate could be very useful to it as well (It’s basically the Ice-type equivalent of Aerialate, turning Normal moves into Ice and boosting them by 30%). Although Glalie does currently lack the move-pool to take full advantage of it, that’s certainly subject to change with the arrival of new moves and new tutors.

So what do you guys think of Mega Steelix and Mega Glalie? They’re definitely two out-of-the-blue additions, and both could be pretty awesome once we get to know more about them. I’ll be sure to update you guys as soon as we get more concrete info.

    “This brings our total number of generations represented by new evolutions up to five, including a Pokemon from every single gen except for the recent Generation VI.”
    lol you forgot about Diancie.
    anyways, a possible stat boost would be increase in defense and attack stats. Crystal is the hardest solid on Earth so a defense increase would make sense. if they gave Steelix sand force then they may buff attack a little bit. Speed will lower because of that increased weight of the body. Also like you said in the article, sand teams will work very well for it. In the sand, the pokemon gets a special defense boost so add that to a possible small increase in special defense= devastating attack and defensive powers.

    Now glalie, I liked the pokemon but I have never seen it being used competitively. if there are going to be move tutors in the ORAS remakes, that would boost its potential

    Mega Steelix sounds pretty freakin’ great. I never used Glalie or Froslass, so I’m not sure, but it looks like it could be pretty cool. Pun intended.

    My mistake. I was under the impression that the Japanese movie event was distributing Diancie along with its mega stone.
