Why isn't MegaAmpharos's ability Serene Grace?

I'm only guessing here, but I think it has something to do with it being part Dragon type.

Why can't Dragon types have Serene Grace? Or are you talking about Mold Breaker?

Dragon-types could have Serene Grace. They could also have Healer, or Soundproof, or any other Ability. For one reason or another, though, they gave Ampharos Mold Breaker.

Which I think works better than Serene Grace, anyway.

I would much rather have the Mold Breaker. No more Volt Absorb and such.

Every VA Pokemon is Electric. The Lanturn line Therian Thundurus are the only ones that would take neutral damage.

Yeah, unless Mold Breaker's effect has changed this gen, say to allow attacks to bypass immunities based on type as well as those based on ability, it doesn't seem very strong. Then again, it's still better than Static, so I guess I'll take it.

Because they wanted Ampharos to be Zekrom 2.0.

Well it does cancel out Lightningrod as well, which is effective against ...Seaking.

But in Dream World Seaking gets LIghtningrod as its ability, the same as Goldeen. I've always wondered why Game Freak would do that to a water pokemon.
