How usable is Mawile now?

With its Steel/Fairy typing and the new type chart and all.

It's probably the only Fairy Type that doesn't run in fear from Gengar and Scizor, both of which are shaping up to be Fairy hunters.

Steel/Fairy leaves it's only weaknesses at Fire and Ground.

Still resists a whole lot. Fighting hits neutral. Immune to Poison and Dragon. Mawile is turning into quite the contender. With a Mega, and getting Huge Power out of it, it's a bit more of a threat.

Plus, when it's sent out, it uses Intimidate, followed by Mega Evolution.

The real question is, since you're only allowed one Mega Evolution per battle, is Mawile worth not using another Mega instead?

Gets a Mega Form

Immune to Poison.

Neutral to Steel.

Neutral to Fighting.

Only weak to Fire, and Ground.

Will destroy any dragon that isn't named "MegaGarchomp".

Yeah Mawile will be very usable this gen.

On top of this, Steel hits Neutral, instead of Super against Fairy. Pretty much all the benefits of Fairy without the defensive weaknesses.

No one's pointing out its stats... Mega Mawile has double attack and Appearently double def and spec. Def. so of this is true.: amazing defensive and offensive typing with an attack and defense stat higher than groudon with a good move pool that includes sucker, ice, and electric punch.

Oh and it intimidates the opponent before mega evolving, and has swords dance to increase its ridiculous attack stat.

I'm calling uber -

Mewtwo - sucker punch

Ho-oh, Kyogre & lugia - thunder punch

Groudon - ice punch

Yvetal, Raquaza, Zekrom, Dialga, ect - STAB fairy attack

Xerneas - iron head

Ect.
Keep in mind it's speed will still suck, but thanks to amazing defense it will get, it can probably easily take all one-on-one and win
