Pokémon Theory: How Mega Evolution Works

Before I start anything, I sincerely apologize for my failure to meet the deadlines on my last two theories. You all were so eager to see them, and I tried to perfect them in any way I could to meet your expectations. But in a blunder, I lost my case file on ghost in Pokémon for good, as my computer deleted it. I had put a lot of thought and talent into that piece, and it disheartened me to lose something I had worked so hard on, so much so I could not bear to write another theory. But after a short recovery, I have managed to brave the challenge once more and get back to writing my theories. So without further ado, let's return to regularly scheduled theory on Mega Evolution.

Upon your arrival in Kalos, you were greeted with a brand new game mechanic called Mega Evolution. If you have been living under a rock and don't know much about this genetic change, then allow me to elaborate. After countless hours of studying the notes of Professor Sycamore and interviewing scientists at the Tower of Mastery, I have come to realize that Mega Evolution is a genetic mutation caused by a reaction with two corresponding stones and a Pokémon. When the first stone is activated, the second stone will mutate the DNA of a Pokémon temporarily to achieve greater power. I then continued my own studies to figure own what catalyst is so powerful that Pokémon can briefly sustain that much energy.

When I had inquired Sycamore about the reaction between the stones, he informed me that this reaction depends on the Pokémon's relationship with a human. He went on to explain that if the bond between human and trainer is strong enough, Mega Evolution can be achieved. After further research, I found the relationship easily explained by the origin of the Mega Stones themselves. After doing a bit of digging into Kalos' war-torn past and a few investigations on the ultimate weapon, I found that the stones were formed from the original destruction of the ultimate weapon. According to my sources, the weapon used the life energy of other Pokémon to fuel its destruction. However, this weapon was also used to bring a Pokémon back to life, suggesting that the shattered pieces of the weapon could give Pokémon greater strength and the ability to fight on. The weapon could only be activated by the king, who shared a great bond this revived Pokémon, so he used this bond to activate the weapon and end the Great Pokémon War. This bond is what allowed the weapon to wreak havoc as it was filled with the power of Xerneas and Yvetal. I then set my sights on the Hoenn region, as the origins of Mega Evolution are a central part of its history.

While I was in Kalos, many natives told me that a Lucario was the first Pokémon to Mega Evovle. But after my visit in Hoenn, I find this statement has been proven false. It seems that Rayquaza is the first Pokémon to achieve the state of Mega Evolution, as it would hear the wishes of the endangered human race and Mega Evolve so it could end the quarrels between Groudon and Kyogre. Oddly enough, it has been verified by my research that Rayquaza does not need a Mega Stone in order to attain its greater form. One could merely ask it to Mega Evolve and it would. Other researchers shed some light on this intriguing method by explaining the special organ that Rayquaza possesses. Rayquaza usually stays high in the atmosphere so that it may feed on falling meteorites. After dissecting one of these meteorites, I found it contained a mineral similar to that of the Mega Stones. So when Rayquaza eats these meteorites, the mineral is then stored in this special organ so that it may reserve this energy for when it is needed most. After this study, I asked about the Mega Stones of Groudon and Kyogre, which prompted an immediate scolding from my peers.

While in Hoenn, I learned of the original forms of Kyogre and Groudon, which they can obtain by going through a change called Primal Reversion. I took a brief visit to the holding place of Red and Blue Orbs, where I asked the locals about how these gemstones brought about the change in beasts of land and sea. They responded to my inquiry that these gems contained their original power, and how each gem was used to calm the beast before they could cause any more destruction. I asked if they had heard of any other cases regarding Primal Reversion, but none could recall such an incident. I intend to look further into the field of these power-boosting gems, as a colleague of mine wishes me to join him in the study of Z-Moves in Alola.

So what did you think? Feel free to tell me in the comments, especially if you have a theory of your own that you would like to share. To suggest my next theory or have your questions answered, visit the thread I created where I address your questions and talk about some of the other Pokémon series that I am creating. Here's the link if you feel like checking it out: http://www.planetminecraft.com/forums/answering-pokemon-theories-t566105.html . But until next time, I will see you in the next blog!

You say that the statement of "Lucario [being] the first Pokemon to Mega Evolve" to be false, or Game Freak just decided to alter the lore a little bit because they were making another Pokemon game with Mega Evolution. Now I love Mega Evolution and Pokemon lore, but with each new Pokemon game released, so too does more lore which sometimes contradicts what has been stated in previous games. No doubt in the Diamond and Pearl remakes more Mega Pokemon or Burst Pokemon will be introduced which will contradict with the original Diamond and Pearl, Cynthia will no-doubt have Mega Garchomp and there may be something else like the Delta Episode for Arceus or Giratina (most likely Giratina scene as Rayquaza was the main legendary for Emerald and there was no Emerald remake. The lore of Pokemon is forever changing, so I prefer to pay no mind to it as it becomes too contradictory; for example, there are four different answers for the first pokemon, Rhydon (first Pokemon conceived in development), Bulbasaur (first Pokemon in the PokeDex), Mew (ancestor to all Pokemon) and Arceus (very first Pokemon). But you could also say that the other Legendary Pixies for each different region, Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Manaphy, Shaymin, Victini; because as more Pokemon games were released, so too were more Legendary Pixies, thus altering the lore of pokemon. Any Pokemon theory conceived can be demolished as soon as a new game comes out disproving it due to something in the game, which becomes facts for the fans.

Well, it's not so much lore as it is fact, as this has been addressed in the core games themselves. I personally don't think it's a contradiction, but rather a new discovery that disproves older information. Mega Lucario might have been the first Mega Evolution with eye witness reports, but Mega Rayquaza was the first ever recorded Mega Evolution in history. This was a recent discovery in Hoenn, as the studies concerning Mega Rayquaza have only just opened. Rayquaza only Mega Evolves when a great danger lurks and only the power of Mega Evolution can stop it. The rest of your argument is a bit off track with some very random evidence. You started to go on about a Generation 4 remake, but that's not even relevant, for the upcoming games are Pokémon Sun and Moon. The first Pokémon isn't completely a question of lore, but rather a very open question. Bulbasaur is the first Pokémon in the Pokédex, Rhydon was the first Pokémon created, Mew was the ancestor to all Pokémon, and Arceus is the creator of all Pokémon. Plus, the statement about "Pixies" does not seem to alter the lore as much as you make it out to be. Their storylines are relatively short and their actions don't even affect the main story. But my main point is this: theories are not created to say you are right, they are created because you think you might be right. The theory might be disproven later on, but it never matters.
