In Pokémon X & Y, Ampharos, Absol and Mawile have the ability to evolve into mega forms.

The three new Pokémon join Mewtwo, Blaziken, and Lucario as mega evolution-compatible critters; the first three were detailed late last week.

Here’s the skinny on the new reveals, courtesy of Gematsu:

  • Mega Ampharos – When Ampharos Mega Evolves into Mega Ampharos, its head and tail are covered with white fur in this new, gallant appearance. When Ampharos undergoes Mega Evolution, it gains the Dragon type in addition to its original Electric type. When Mega Ampharos increases the amount of electrical energy within itself, the red orbs on its body and fur emit a strong light. It becomes an Electric / Dragon-type and has the ability Mold Breaker.
  • Mega Absol – The increased energy that courses through Absol’s body upon Mega Evolving makes its fur stand on end, giving it the appearance of wings. It has the ability Magic Bounce.
  • Mega Mawile – When Mawile undergoes Mega Evolution, its trademark huge mouth has multiplied, and now there are two great maws to contend with. It even seems that Mega Mawile is able to control each maw independently. It has the ability Huge Power.
