Here's how Mega Evolutions work in Pokemon X and Y

And a look at newcomers Dedenne, Bunnelby, and Skiddo

Following our coverage of the recent Pokemon X and Y info dump from CoroCoro, The Pokemon Company has come out with official art and some additional details on how the games' new Mega Evolutions will work. The biggest thing you need to know is that they only take place during battle, after which point your Pokemon will go back to its normal form.

The new evolution will be brought on by Mega Stones, which are scattered throughout the region of Kalos and are named after the individual Pokemon they're suited for. There is one exception: the Mega Stone Blazikenite can't be found in-game. Rather, it'll be distributed via Wi-Fi starting October 12, which is when Pokemon X and Y launch worldwide. Sounds about right.

Funny how X and Y were -- I don't want to say off my radar entirely -- but they weren't high up there, either. In light of this week's information on Mega forms, I'm fairly excited. Always was a bit of a Digimon fan, so perhaps that's why. Also, I want to squeeze Dedenne. Even if it results in a horrifying death by electrocution.
