I have a feeling that Ash Ketchum from the main Pokemon series and Alain who appeared in the Mega Evolution Special will eventually cross paths in the Kalos region.
In the Mega Evolution Special, Mairin tells Alain about an “amazing trainer named Ash who calmed down Garchomp on the top of Prism Tower and saved a falling Pokemon (Pikachu)!” and it was the same Garchomp from Sycamore’s Lab that Alain knew!
This means the Mega Evolution Special and the XY anime series are actually in the same “universe” in terms of story lines.
She goes on to say that Ash must have had a lot of trust and a good heart to calm down Garchomp like that and that goes along with the fact that a trainer and Pokemon must be in sync in terms of trust and heart to Mega Evolve. Knowing Ash we know he gets along with pretty much any Pokemon which kind of foreshadows him getting a Mega Pokemon sometime soon.
In one of my earlier Pokemon Theory blogs, I mentioned the possibility of Ash’s Charizard arriving in the Kalos region. Once it arrives, it would not surprise me if it evolves into one of its mega forms. I figured that it might occur around the time of the Kalos League. Considering that Mega Evolution is popular in the region, it wouldn’t surprise me if Ash uses Charizard in the Pokemon League in a mega form to fight against powerful opponents.
During the Mega Evolution Special, Alain’s quest is to battle against Mega Pokemon and to learn as much about this special method of evolution as he can. It was never mentioned if he was traveling around earning the 8 gym badges to compete in the Kalos League.
His Mega Charizard X proved to be a very powerful Pokemon, and considering Alain said it was his most powerful Pokemon means that he has more in his possession. For all we know he probably has other Pokemon capable of Mega Evolution, but the one he relies on the most is Charizard.
Alain has a Mega Ring and can evolve his most powerful Pokemon in his possession Charizard with the Charizardite X Mega Stone.
Halfway through the episode, he goes into a cave and finds another Mega Stone before facing a trainer with a Mega Garchomp.
If you ask me I think it is pretty obvious that Alain had just found the Charizardite Y Mega Stone. Charizard is capable of using 2 different mega forms so it is an interesting plot in the story line that Alain would have the stones to acces both forms for his Charizard. He even says that there is so much about Mega Evolution that he doesn’t know yet which explains why he didn’t realize that this stone could be used to let his Charizard turn into its alternate Mega Evolution.
Considering that Alan’s Charizard was able to hold its own against an Elite 4 Pokemon, I think that pretty much solidifies the fact that Ash would have to call upon one of his reserve Pokemon with experience instead of the ones he has caught so far in Kalos.
Not to mention Alan has BOTH Mega Stones for Charizard so if they battled he would probably give one to Ash if he didn’t already have one for himself.
What do you think will Ash and Alan cross paths at some point in the XY anime and battle? If so who do you think would win in a battle between Mega Charizard X and Mega Charizard Y?
