Nintendo has shed some light on the Mega-Evolved form of Audino in a new trailer and screenshots for Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire.
Since I don’t understand anything Pokemon anymore (it’s been too many years since I played one), I will let Nintendo do all the talking:
“Before Mega Evolving, Audino is known to use the feelers on its ears to tell how others are feeling or when a Pokemon Egg might hatch. It may have either the Healer Ability or the Regenerator Ability. After Mega Evolving, Mega Audino adds Fairy type to its Normal type, automatically gaining all the advantages of Fairy type. Mega Audino always has the Healer Ability.”
See? Much better from the mouths of the creators, no?
This form of Audino has improved Defense and Special Defense stats, and is especially supportive in Double Battles. It will send out a powerful pulse which will reduce hostility in others and calm any opponent within range.
Mega Audino’s new secondary feelers will cause Pokemon to fall into a deep sleep and become vulnerable to an opponent’s attack.
Check out the assets below, and don’t forget about the 2014 Pokemon World Championships this weekend. You can watch it all unfold live via our previous post from Tuesday.
Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire arrive exclusively on 3DS in November.
