Picture yourself as a kid with mega forms being announced for Gold/Silver.

9 year olds perspective "Wow cool I can't wait to see what these "mega forms" are!"

23 year old who still follows pokemon perspective "Damnit Gamefreak stop giving me excuses to compare you to the antichrist! You've ruined this game forever... AGAIN!!"

These kinds of topics would actually make sense if people were being overwhelmingly negative.

But they aren't. Like, at all.

Is it okay to "this" something this early? Though I do see TCs point, a bit. My niece and nephew think mega forms sound awesome. I'm reserved, mostly due to just wanting to see how this is going to be fully implemented.

But yeah, overall the reception has seemed pretty positive.

If Mega forms came out when I was a kid, there would have been a lawsuit between Pokemon and Digimon.

I've been playing since Gen 1 and we never had a problem with Pokemon evolution. Mainly because it's the furthest thing from actual evolutionary theory. Even my dad got into it for a while and we would frequently play the TCG against each other.

Except, they don't really cross any significant enough lines for that to happen. At worst, they might need a different name. Besides, Digimon still exists, if they can't sue now, why would they have been able to then?

The only reason they got flak back in the day was because pokemon was confused with the Megaten series lol.
#8LexifoxPosted 8/9/2013 12:50:10 PM
So we're clear... G/S being announced? That's when the Digimon vs Pokemon rivalry was at its high point and "Mega Digimon" were showing up.

Honestly, as a 24 year old, I screamed aloud in jubilee at the sight of the fabulous & flaw-free Mega Ampharos!

I swear if this diva existed in my youth, Jynx would be picking garbage at the curb of Cerulean City in Yellow.

No comment on the others though.
I accept them as they are beautiful in their own way, but they definitely weren't born that way.

This.

The reactions to these Mega forms have been shockingly positive.
