What exactly is a mega evolution?

So some more pokemon evolve.


...

so? How is this different? Is Blazekin all of a sudden turning into a legendary? Blazekin can't get much stronger then it already is with becoming some legendary pokemon or something. What is going on here?

We don't know, but Pokejungle seems to think it's induced by a hold item and only temporary.

Putting a Einstein wig on Ampharos makes it a part Dragon type?

No, but the fact that it's Japanese name literally means "electric dragon" does, at least more than Alteria.

Think DBZ and Super Saiyan state. Yeah, it's kinda like that.

Basically a power up during battle, or so it seems right now.

From what i understand its induced by the pokemon having a hold item example: "blazekenite" and having a Mega stone used on it. I dont know if its temporary or not but i bet itd be permanent i mean a temporary evolution? Itd be ridiculous...

Well, according to serebii.net.

" It also confirms that Mega Evolutions are temporary in battle. "


It's temporary.
