With Pokemon X & Y, the creators decided to step up their game by making the older Pokemon even more fun to use than before.
With the introduction of Mega Evolutions, Pokemon that were thought to be done with their evolution cycle get another chance to take on a completely new form that has never been seen before.
To mega-evolve a Pokemon, that creature must be holding the applicable Mega Stone. For example, to get a Mega Charizard, a player’s normal Charizard must be holding Charizardite X or Y, depending on the game. Mega Evolutions give Pokemon new abilities and types for the battle that the Pokemon is involved in. Unlike normal evolution, however, Pokemon who mega evolve return to their pre-mega state once the battle is over.
