Why isnt mega absol a normal evo?

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.


And Absol already had base 130 Attack, so maybe they thought a normal evolution would be too powerul.

On the bright side, standard Mawhile's type still gets revamped to Steel/Fairy.

MegaAbsol is still getting an attack and speed increase, though.

Giving absol a proper evo would let it hold eviolite and fight in little cup


Not necessarily.

Little cup does not include the baby pokemon that are obviously too powerful for it. I think the only reason onyx is in there is because of its typing. But just look at munchlax. It would have been too good for LC.

They could've its evo not get ATt increase. As it is, Absol has the games most underwhelming 130 att stat.

Better question to me is why isn't Mega Absol Dark/Fairy-type. I mean, just look at him.

Me too. I'm a bit annoyed by this Mega Evolutions thing...it would've been better if Mawile & Absol had new evolutions. Right after I heard that they are only temporary in battle I was a bit relieved but I'm beginning to worry again because Pokemons like Blaziken & Ampharos(who are in their final stage) also got Megas so I'm guessing that there's no more hope for Absol & Mawile to get actual evolutions....they probably won't evolve anymore......
