Update: Pokemon Let's GO Eevee and Pikachu Mega Evolutions have now been confirmed by CoroCoro Magazine scans shared by Serebii.net. Mega Evolutions for Charizard, Blastoise and Venusaur are all featured.
A new toy listing suggests Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee for the Nintendo Switch might have Mega forms. Well gosh, Pokémon Let's Go, if you want to sell me on having an HD Mega Charizard X to boss around, you won't hear any objections from me.
Yesterday, Pokémon merch site PokéShopper.com published some toy news that might indicate what Game Freak has planned for Let's Go. "On the Takara Tomy promotional front, new Pokémon merchandise will be made for the Kanto evolutionary starters, more specificially for Mega forms, figurines that will release in conjuction to the Let's Go promotion," the site states. "Note that we are still adding data, and numbers are currently missing from our list so be sure to keep checking back."
The Mega-evolved toy forms listed so far are Mega Charizard X, Mega Charizard Y, Mega Venusaur, and Mega Blastoise.
Pokeshopper Update : Takara Tomy figurine list publication indicates Mega Charizard X, Y, Mega Venusaur and Mega Blastoise are all to be released this November.

While this isn't confirmation Mega-evolved Pokémon will be in Pokémon Let's Go, Tomy distributing Mega Pokémon toys in tandem with the game's release is quite a coincidence. Plus, features from later Pokémon Generations—like dressing up your Pokémon and petting them—are making an appearance in Pokémon Let's Go's Gen-One world, so it wouldn't be too shocking to see some Mega-evolved creatures hanging around Kanto. Mega fights might even make for good post-game content.
Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee are coming to the Nintendo Switch on November 16. Our Pokémon Let's Go guides contain everything you need to prepare yourself for your great big Pokémon adventure.
