Why isnt mega absol a normal evo?

I understand giving starters, legends and other 3 stage pokemon a mega evo but pokemon like absol would have been better off with a normal permanent evo.

you are either trolling or missed the point.

For the record i am not saying i dont like this new mechanic, it kinda reminds me of overdrives but pokemon style. I just think pokemon like absol which are not that great statwise would benefit more from a permanent evolution. Also from past experience those things tend to feel kinda gimmicky.

maybe they're giving absol a stat boost, or a prevo and a stat boost, as well as the mega form.
plus, if it's an in-battle form, maybe it's based on the carried item. Like, as long as it holds that stone, it's essentially permanent. if it takes a turn to set up, that would kinda bite, but if it happens from the start, it'd still be a usable "evolution".

I agree with you, i always thought that Absol should had a pre-evolution and an evolution.

Because Game Freak feels that Absol doesn't need a proper evolution for whatever reason.

Time will tell how this thing works exactly, but Mega Absol is at this point confirmed to have boosted Speed and Attack compared to regular Absol.

Your wait is over. Them showing that Mawile with a mega forme pretty much confirms that he/she won't get an evolution and i'm really really disappointed by that

Giving absol a proper evo would let it hold eviolite and fight in little cup it doesn't really need that much of a handicap does it?
