    Given the reveal of the return of mega evolutions, you might be onto something.

    I would love a Mega Jynx, to be honest. She's one of my favorite pokemon, and I would love to see a mega that takes on the true (and frightening) form of Yama-uba.

    If we go by the trademarks, it would seem like they may do something similar to ORAS and give a Mega to every important character. We have the Elite Four mons (Jynx, Machamp and Dragonite), Persian for Giovanni, Weezing and Arbok for Jesse and James. Golem, Starmie and Raichu could be for rematches againts Gym Leaders. The eeveelutions, Hitmonchan and Hitmontop seem weirder. Maybe the trademarks are just because they're relevant Pokemon in the game and that's it, but no harm in dreaming.

    And since there's no harm in dreaming, which Mega would you give Gym Leaders? Sabrina can have Mega-Alakazam(or even Mr. Mime if they want to do something new), and I'd say Weezing for Koga, but that's going to be James' signature Pokemon, so maybe Muk or Venomoth(this is based on Yellow after all). For Erika it's either Victreebel or Vileplume, and Blaine should probably go with Arcanine, but it could be Rapidash or Ninetales. I don't know what kind of team Trace will have, but he should get one too.

    I would assume the same thing. Mega's returning is just the old ones, same as Alola.

    I would like Mega Butterfree, if we ever did get new ones though. Seems natural with Beedrill having one.

    maybe i am just skeptical, but i doubt they will put new megas on the let's go games. I think they will stick to the ones we already have that are kanto pokemon. not that I wouldn't like new megas.

    So I heard Mega-Evolution are back, but then I noticed that you won't be able to give your Pokemon items to carry so either they're going to change things up or websites told fake news about no holding items.

    I am confused...

    That's a rather interesting concept, especially since all megas would have to be Gen 1.

    Brock - Mega Alolan Golem
    Misty - Mega Golduck
    Lt. Surge - Mega Alolan Raichu
    Erika - Mega Vileplume
    Koga - Mega Alolan Muk
    Sabrina - Mega Alakazam
    Blaine - Mega Rapidash (better be a pegasus)
    Giovanni - Mega Alolan Persian

    What I'm wondering about is how they would portray Mega Evolutions for Pokemon that have both regular and Alolan forms (Raichu, Persian and Golem). Would it be the same no matter which form they're in, or would both forms each have a Mega-Evolved form with their own unique abilities?

    I'm not sure why I'm still seeing posts declaring held items aren't in based on a status screen that doesn't even show natures (but are clearly still in as the color coding for it is still there).

    Simply say that the adaption in Alola caused the power of Mega Evolution to cease to exist. Alola Raichu has its own Z Crystal that regular Raichu can't use so I think it'd be fair to give just regular Raichu the Mega. We've seen with Mega Stones and Z Crystals that they can add more to the name of the item (look at Charizardite/Mewteonite X/Y and Alolraichium Z) so they hypothetically could add 2 separate Mega Stones

    Mega Evolution over Z Moves any day. I'm very glad they're back.

    I'm not hoping on new Megas at all this time, quite frankly I'm just glad to see them in the main game and not post game....

    I feel if we got new Megas, they'd be only a small handful since they're restricted to just Kanto Pokemon and Flygon did get cut since they couldn't make a good design so they're obviously not going to pump out a gazillion Kanto Megas at once just cause they can. Not to mention some Kanto Pokemon like Electabuzz literally can't get Megas since you can't get Electivre in this game. And Raichu, sad as it is.... it ain't happening! And give one Eeveelution a Mega, then you've got to give them all one!

    If we did get new Megas though, I want Mega Butterfree. I felt it was so stupid Butterfree didn't get a Mega yet Beedrill did. I don't see the point of that, the two are usually version exclusives..... so why should one get a Mega while one doesn't? Seems odd to me.

    I'm really just hoping they make a comeback in gen 8 and continue to be in the main game again, with you being able to find the stones out and about giving you a reward for exploring the world like in XY and ORAS. Not locked behind a BP paywall or being able to Mega Evolve without stones

    Yeah, Mega Raichu is just about as out there as giving it a brand new form and making it Psychic type for no reason!

    Silly people!

    Assuming the leaked list is true, and it’s the only ones we’re getting, every gym leader and Elite 4 should get One Mega Evolution for their teams, only Erika and Blaine would be left out, which leads me to assume that 2 of them would gain Fire and Grass types.
    Looking at the list, most of them seem tailored to certain characters (Starmie for Misty, Raichu for Surge, Jynx for Loreli, Arbok/Weezing for Team rocket, Persian for Giovanni, etc.)

    So by process of elimination, I think the most likely choices are....Hitmonchan and Hitmonlee! (Bruno is probably gonna main Machamp)
    So could we be seeing a Fire/Fighting Hitmonchan like Flaming Arms as boxing gloves or a Grass/Fighting Hitmonlee who’s made of Wood or viceversa? It could be possible, but I think the more likely option is a Mega Vileplume and Arcanine.

    On that same logic, I think Persian could get a ground type to fit Giovanni better, maybe it’s regular beige fur will be made of Sand instead.

    I never thought of it that way and that would be awesome if those specific characters got those Megas. Personally I would love a Mega Arbok and Mega Weezing so yes, as you say, no harm in dreaming lol.

    his team will probably be similar to the team your rival in pokemon Yellow basically if in Let's Go Pikachu his Mega would be Mega Vaporeon, Mega Flareon, or Mega Jolteon, while in Pokemon Let's Go Eevee his Mega would be Mega Raichu.

    There is one thing I don't get. Why did the leaks chose Jynx for the Mega Evolution and not Lapras. I thought Lapras was Lorelei's Ace in the Hole, not Jynx, not to mention is more recognizable.

    Maybe to avoid the increase of Water type Mega's in the 151 range of 1st Gen pokemons.
    Or else, they are trying to fix the controversies with Jynx, by bringing in a good design for it.

    Or, its entirely possible that Jynx isn't going to get a Mega and that list is for something else.
    I am not saying that new Mega's won't be added. Considering the fact that they are focusing a lot on Mega's again, its almost certain that new Mega's would be added. But that doesn't meant that only those in that list have to be the ones to get them.

    As for the case with Lorelei, well considering that both her Jynx and Lapras have the same level in-game during the first encounter (RBY - lvl 56; LGFR - lvl 54) and the fact that none of the other Kanto Elite 4 members have Pokemon in their team which share same level (except Bruno during rematches in HGSS only), i would say that both Jynx and Lapras are her Ace.

    I can see a few new Megas being introduced. It seems like most of the 15 listed Pokemon would belong to major characters (Golem and Starmie for Brock and Misty, assuming they gain greater plot importance; Raichu for either Surge or Trace if he gets Pikachu in LGE; Jynx, Machamp, and Dragonite for the Elite Four sans Agatha, who would already have Mega Gengar; Arbok and Weezing for Jessie and James, Persian for Giovanni (or potentially Petrel posing as Giovanni?); and the Stone Eeveelutions for Trace), with the only outliers being the Hitmons. Hitmontop's already confirmed to not be in the game. Unless Karate King Kiyo serves as a tutorial for Mega Evolution?

    All that aside, I don't foresee Golem or Raichu getting Megas due to already having Alolan Forms. Either way, most of these Pokemon belong to major characters (or at least iconic ones like Misty), so of course they'll want to traemark them.

    I might be wrong about this but hear me out.

    Last Saturday's showcase trailer where it showcases the Mega evolutions for Kangaskhan and Gyarados, there might be a hint to a brand new mega evolution for Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee.

    Kangaskhan was fighting a Ninetails and Gyarados was fighting a Slowbro. Now here comes the potential hint. Three of the four Pokémon shown in that trailer have, up till now, a Mega evolution. Two of them shown but one that wasn't shown but we know has a Mega Evolution, which could mean that Ninetails might end up getting a Mega Evolution in Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee.

    If both Kangaskhan and Gyarados were facing Pokémon that did not have a Mega evolutions up to this point, I wouldn't have made this connection, but this is not the case.

    Let me know if I'm on to something.
