Mega Audino announced for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

Posted on August 14, 2014 AT 06:00am

Following a leak earlier this week, Nintendo has officially announced that Audino will be the next Pokémon to get a Mega Evolution in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

Earlier this week, the official Korean Pokémon website accidentally poted images and descriptions of Mega Slowbro and Mega Audino, they were removed shortly after. Now Nintendo has officially announced Mega Audino with a new trailer, presumably Mega Slowbro will follow shortly.

“Audino was not known to evolve from, or to, any other form, so this is an interesting twist in the mysterious story of Mega Evolution,” Nintendo explains. “Before Mega Evolving, Audino is known to use the feelers on its ears to tell how others are feeling or when a Pokémon 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 a Fairy-type Pokémon. Mega Audino also always has the Healer Ability.

“Thanks to its improved Defense and Special Defense stats, Mega Audino can be a great support in Double Battles.”

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will be available on Nintendo 3DS from November 21 in North America and November 28 in Europe.
