The previously revealed form is Mega Mewtwo Y, while the new one below is Mega Mewtwo X, which is Psychic/Fighting type and has the ability Steadfast (raises speed on flinching).

As in previous games there are two fossil Pokémon: Chigorasu (Rock/Dragon) and Amarusu (Rock/Ice) - both unique type combinations! Chigorasu has a new ability Hard Jaw that increases the power of biting moves (assuming moves like Bite, Crunch, Fire Fang etc). Amarusu has a new ability Frozen Skin which turns Normal type moves into the Ice type and boosts their power.

The new type chart for the Fairy type is confirmed. Fairy is super effective against Fighting, Dark and Dragon; not very effective against Fire, Poison and Steel; Poison and Steel are super effective against Fairy; Fighting, Dark and Bug are not very effective against it; Dragon type moves have no effect on Fairy type Pokémon.
