The Mega Evolution Pokédex Shorts (Japanese: マノンのメガシンカ絵日記 Manon's Mega Evolution Journal, メガシンカ図鑑 Mega Evolution Encyclopedia, and ゲンシカイキの謎 The Mysteries of Primal Reversion) are a series of shorts that introduce mostly Mega-Evolved Pokémon that debuted in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

In the original Japanese version, it originally aired as a post-credits segment of the anime's XY series in the place of Professor Oak's Pokémon Holo Caster. It aired from Battling Into the Hall of Fame! to Facing the Grand Design! (including the delayed An Undersea Place to Call Home!).

In the dub, these segments were aired separately on the Pokémon TV service. Two of the segments were also uploaded to the official Pokémon YouTube channel.



The Mairin's Mega Evolution Journal shorts feature chibi versions of Mairin and Chespie as they present the shorts, providing commentary. Usually, Alain and his Mega Charizard X join in and co-commentate. These Pokémon are often ones that Alain and Charizard fought during their journey.

Sometimes, Steven appears to present Mega Evolution Pokédex Shorts instead of Mairin. Steven's Mega Evolution Encyclopedia and The Mysteries of Primal Reversion lectures feature Legendary Pokémon, such as Mega Latias and Latios. XY044 and XY054's Mega Evolution Encyclopedia lectures were provided by the narrator of the Mega Evolution Specials.
