While this article's headline sounds like we're describing appetizers at a family restaurant, we're really talking about the original trio of starting Pokemon that will show up in Pokemon X and Y. If you need a refresher, that means that we'll see Bulbasaur, Squirtle and Charmander in the upcoming Pokemon games. What's more is that we'll see them Mega Evolve!

A very special Nintendo Direct this morning featured a look at some Pokemon X and Y news. One of the biggest bits of news was the fact Professor Sycamore won't present you with the choice of partnering up with a Chespin, Fennekin or Froakie and that your friend will gift you with one of those Pokemon later on.

It turns out that the good Professor will give you the choice between Bulbasaur, Charmander or Squirtle, the original starters from Pokemon Red and Pokemon Blue! And the best part? We'll get to see them Mega Evolve!

The requirements for Mega Evolution include the Pokemon in question holding a Mega Stone and the player to have a Mega Ring equipped with a Key Stone. These two items in tandem will trigger Mega Evolution and turn your Poke-friend into an even more badass form of itself.

Watch the video above and wait with bated breath for the release of Pokemon X and Y on Oct. 12 for Nintendo 3DS.
