Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire add Mega-Evolutions for Steelix, Glalie

Two more Mega-Evolutions, this time for Steelix and Glalie, will appear in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, The Pokémon Company International announced.

Steelix is the evolution of rock-and-ground-type Pokémon Onix. As Mega-Steelix, the Pokémon has additional defense and uses a new move, Iron Tail. Glalie, meanwhile, is an ice-type that evolves from Snorunt. Its Mega-Evolution gives it raised stats and the Refrigerate ability, which turns Normal-type moves into Ice-type, and single knockout attack Sheer Cold.

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire launch Nov. 21 for Nintendo 3DS. A demo, which will allow players to transfer over items and Glalie to the full game, is available today.
