Unleash the Strength of Two Tough Pokémon!


From August 13 to September 17, you can get Heracross for your Pokémon X game or Pinsir for your Pokémon Ygame. These Lv. 50 Pokémon are ready for battle with a variety of powerful moves. Heracross and Pinsir don’t come with any held items. But starting August 18 and while supplies last, you can head to participating GameStop stores to get Mega Stones for the Pokémon to hold! When these Pokémon are holding the right Mega Stone, they will be able to Mega Evolve during battle, making them more powerful than ever before. Look for a flyer at GameStop that contains a serial code. When you enter the code into your game, you’ll receive the matching Mega Stone: Heracronite in Pokémon X or Pinsirite in Pokémon Y.

While at GameStop, you’ll be able to preorder your copy ofPokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire and receive a special preorder bonus poster (while supplies last)!

Find All the Known Mega Stones!

The Mega-Evolved Pokémon in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y are some of the most incredible Pokémon ever seen! For a Pokémon to Mega Evolve, it must be holding the right kind of Mega Stone, a rare item found somewhere in the Kalos region.

Instead of hunting each Mega Stone down on your own, find them all quickly with our handy reference guide! Once you’ve found these Mega Stones, your Pokémon could be unstoppable.

Mega Slowbro

Mega Slowbro’s energy has gathered in the Shellder clamped onto its tail. As a result, the hardness of its shell is boosted, making an armor so hard that nothing and no one can scratch it. When Mega Slowbro battles, it stands up on its tail. It can move by bouncing along, using its tail as a spring.

After Mega Evolving, its Shell Armor Ability means that opponents’ attacks will never land a critical hit. In terms of stats, its previously high Defense jumps still more, and its Sp. Attack also increases, making Mega Slowbro a great Pokémon for long, sticky battles that require endurance.
