Blazakin was uber because of speed boost being too good with his stats and movepool

Mega blazakin should have lower stats, and can't use protect, the whole idea is that he is designed around having speed boost, so to compensate he needs to be weaker.

if mega blaziken tries to use protect it will always fail.

1. "...why would anyone use this ever"
2. "...When did Game Freak start to care about foreign metagames?"

also
3. "...So they made Megaken weaker... but they gave us a Speed Boost Torchic, meaning they gave us the broken Pokemon and then said 'Here's a hammer if you want to break its knees we'd really appreciate it but if you don't want to that's cool'. How stupid are they?"

it's not a smogon thing, it's a Blazikin is too good with speed boost thing. My idea is that GF wants Blazikin to have speed boost. They don't want it to get it while having THOSE stats. So instead you get a new form.

But with the event, you get a Speed Boost Torchic.
If Mega Blaziken were worse, then you just don't use the Blazikenite and reap the benefits of Speed Boost/Protect normal Blaziken.

Why shouldn't it? Not necessarily Smogon specifically, but why shouldn't the experiences of the fans that play the game for the competitive aspect be considered in Gamefreak's decisions?

I lol'd.

But seriously, you have to remember that the ability (Speed Boost) isn't a bonus from the Mega form, it's natural to Torchic. It'll eventually evolve into a Blaziken with Speed Boost.

So why would they make it Mega evolve just to cripple it? I can understand if they raised its Attack stat while removing from its Speed stat to compensate, but it probably won't be worse than normal Blaziken.
