Kanto Mega Evo question

#1canoli22082Posted 9/26/2013 1:00:45 PM
In order to have a mega evo for a Kanto starter, do I need the poke from X/Y or can I transfer one in from a previous game? I'm torn on which Kanto starter I want to use

We assume (hasnīt been directly stated, but itīs preety obvious) Mega Stones work on any variant of the correspondant species, so transfer away.

In the strictest sense of the word, I would say no. That is to say, a venasaur from anywhere could mega evolve if it has the corresponding hold item. That said, I suspect that ingame you will only receive the mega-stone that corresponds to the kanto starter you choose from the professor.

Of course, it's plenty likely that you will then be able to get other mega-stones from the battle tower/subway/whathaveyou.

The one in X/Y will be holding the necessary item. I don't know if it'll be the only way to get the items, but if you have, say, Charizardite, you can give it to any Charizard and it should, in theory, work

Ok thanks for the info. I didn't realize each corresponding poke has its own hold item. I thought you could use the hold item on any poke.

I'm hoping it works with any Pokemon of the species, including transferred ones.

I have a Shiny Blastoise I'd love to see Mega-Evolve.
