Hmmm it seems like Ampharos got screwed with the Mega

I mean seriously a Dragon typing is cool and all but others like Mawile got a free fairy typing without the mega as it is. So basically all Ampharos gets is that dragon typing and Mold breaker? That isn't enough when compared to the rest at least throw in some stat increases. Especially when a few of the other Megas get nice stat increases and abilities like adaptability on Lucario. Ampharos is STILL a sad little thing that got an ability that only Pokemon with Ground attacks usually benefit from, a sub type that the game punishes you very hard for having because of all the super strong abominations that have it, and we don't even know if it has access to Draco Meteor. Idk what to say really since I expected more from a Mega which if you can only use 1, there is no reason to use this guy as it only makes him somewhat decent. I mean look at Lucario with adaptability and getting even higher attack in addition to that ability.

Hopefully Amphy will get some Dragon Support this Gen. I don't see why not seeing as he gets the Dragon Typing in Mega. I think its more to do with giving Amphy some more Resistances while adding 3 Weaknesses.

Its most likely going to get Draco Meteor, either naturally or from a tutor.

They already changed its moveset to have Dragon Pulse.

They haven't said specifically that he doesn't get a stat increase, they just haven't said if it does yet.

Not fully. But they did not fail to list every other Mega's stat increase. Well except Ampharos. Honestly if they were going to include it they would drop it in the description so I am not holding my breath.

There's no reason why he wouldn't get a stat boost.

The things are treated as evolutions.

Pretty sure Ampharos does still get a stat boost, and he looks fabulous.

Maybe they consider the new type to be reason enough to not give it a stat boost?
