Mega Mawile

#1philllosophyPosted 9/17/2013 11:52:38 AM
Serebii released and confirmed that Mega Mawile will have an increased Defense and Sp. Defense stat. It was also confirmed that it's Ability is Huge Power. Huge Power doubles the Pokemon's Attack stat while the Pokemon is in battle. Mawile's confirmed max Attack stat is 295. If Mawile were to keep its Attack stat and have an increase in Defense and Sp. Defense as well is have a Fairy and Steel typing, I believe Mawile will become a powerful Tank in the OU Metagame or maybe even Ubers thanks to Fairy being immune to Dragon type attacks. This Pokemon will havevery good potential. The downside...Mawile's base HP is 50 and has a very horrid speed. If it's Mega Evolution were to give it more HP, it would be more usable. The other downsides include it's shallow movepool and lack of recovery. If Gen 6 were to bless it with a powerful Physical Fairy type attack and a recovery move, Mega Mawile will wreak havoc on any tier it is put into. What are your thoughts on Mega Mawile? What tier do you think it will be given? Should it's HP stat remain the same or increase?

They made a pokemon I care little about have an amazing ability. Though I don't really like the Fairy type

Why couldn't other pokemon get Huge Power?

I agree with both of you. I believe that more Pokemon should be gifted with the ability Huge Power. Although, not too many. If so many Pokemon were given that ability, it would make a Pokemon's uniqueness pointless...

I actually wouldn't think it's possible for MegaMawile's HP to increase with the Stone. Personally, I think all HP scores will stay the same.

As for Tier, I say RU

That is the point I think. Huge and Pure power give that boost to pokemon that might not normally be picked for their looks. The ones that most people like tend to have great stats anyway.

I could see Mega Mawile being a team staple as a wall, thought the fact that you have to wait a turn to activate kind of sucks.

Not entirely true. That allows you to get the Intimidate off before Mega Evolving which is really nice.

It's a good thing you don't have to wait a turn then, isn't it.
