'''Primal Reversion''' (Japanese: '''ゲンシカイキ''' ''Primal Regression'') is an ancient transformation that debuted in {{pkmn|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire}}. Pokémon that have undergone Primal Reversion are distinguished by the word "Primal" in front of their species name. It is similar to [[Mega Evolution]], but, instead of using the energy of people and Pokémon, the user instead absorbs the energy of nature to greatly increase its power. Primal Reversion is said to restore the true powers of a Pokémon.
In order to undergo Primal Reversion, a Pokémon only needs to be holding the appropriate [[Colored orbs|Orb]]. Like Mega Stones, Orbs cannot be removed during battle if held by the appropriate Pokémon. Unlike Mega Evolution, however, the player does not need a [[Key Stone]] or have to manually trigger Primal Reversion; it will simply happen automatically after the Pokémon enters battle and after any [[List of moves that cause entry hazards|entry hazards]] take effect, but before the activation of [[weather]]-changing {{Abilities}}. In a Rotation Battle, the Pokémon will only undergo Primal Reversion if it is sent out in the primary position; the Primal Reversion will not activate if the Pokémon is sent out in a secondary position at the start of the battle and then rotated to the primary position. Also unlike Mega Evolution, there is no limit to the number of times a Primal Reversion may be performed per battle.
