From what I've seen so far, it's largely limited to old starters and old legendaries.

Which Pokemon in Pokemon X & Y can have Mega Evolution states? Is it strictly limited to older generations of Pokemon, or is there a certain set of Pokemon that share this feature?

The Pokemon that have mega evolutions at the moment are somewhat arbitrary, in my opinion. Notably the only starters on the list are the Kanto starters (one of which has TWO versions) and Blaizken, and there are no new sixth generation Pokemon with a mega evolution! According to Serebii this is the current list (and this is believed to be final at this point, as there are no other known mega stones).

Note that most mega evolutions have different abilities, and a few even change their typing!

  • Whoa, this was fast. Thanks a bunch! If possible, could you keep this updated if anything changes?

  • I happened to be looking into this earlier - I thought this list sounded so ridiculous that there was no way it was correct, but it sounds like there's no question at this point. It may be technically feasible on a 3DS game to patch new ones in later, but data mining right now seems to indicate this is all that's in the game right now. :/ Absolutely will update if that changes though.

    No sixth-gens though...that's really dissapointing

  • New leaks seem to indicate there may be a few more in the game code that aren't available...but until it's official I won't be adding it here.

  • Thats probably not the whole list. There could be plenty more event mega stones, like BLaziken. I certainly find it odd that blaziken can leave Swampert and Sceptilein more obscurity than allready.

Whilst the list above is still true for Pokemon X & Y - Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire have introduced new Mega Evolutions:

As well as the two 'Primal Reversion' Evolutions
