This is Mega Charizard X, Fire and Dragon type Charizard evolution exclusive to Pokemon X

Ever since the Kanto stars were announced to be obtainable in Pokemon X and Y my hype for the game was through the root. Nintendo and developers Game Freak later announced Mega Evolutions for all three of the Kanto starters which pretty much made me squeal like a little girl.

Today Nintendo revealed an alternate Mega Evolution for Charizard in a special airing of the Pokemon Origins Anime in Japan, this one exclusive is Pokemon X while the previously revealed evolution will be exclusive to Pokemon Y.

This evolution of Charizard is called Mega Charizard X and is of Fire and Dragon type, instead of the normal Charizard which is Fire and Flying. Mega Charizard X also looks quite different as it’s colors are that of Shiny Charizard, which is awesome.

Mega Charizard X has a new special ability called Tough Claws too which increases the power of physical attacks as this evolution is Attach stat focused.


I was previously gonna buy Pokemon Y this time around because I think it has the better selection of Pokemon, but this changes things. Hopefully I can find someone to trade me this evolution!

What do you think of Mega Charizard X? Will this version exclusive evolution change your decision in buying X or Y? Let us know in the comments below. Stay tuned to GearNuke for more Pokemon X and Y info.
