Mega Garchomp is secretly a nerf

Everyone in this thread is so incredibly defensive and taking one phrase out of context or not reading it right....

He doesn't think Garchomp won't be as viable as he is now because it's getting a Mega form. He thinks Garchomp may not be as viable because lots of other Pokemon are getting Mega forms. >_>;

How hard is it to read before making a decent length post about how Garchomp HAS to mega-evolve and all that, when that's nowhere close to what the TC was saying?

Gah, thanks dude! Also, this part is important:

Of course we don't know specific numbers yet; obvious conjecture is obvious

I'm just guessing :P

No, not really. Mega Garchomp has as much impact on regular Chomp as Giratina-O has on A.

garchomp will be even more broken in X/Y than he is now.

anyone who thinks other wise is an idiot.

From zero-to-unnecessarily-hostile in ten seconds flat!

*Uses Dragon Dance*


Garchomp doesn't get it, if you can believe it.

But no, he'll find a niche to be absurd in. He, Mega Blazekien, and Mega Lucario, even though Mega Chicken should be quickly getting the ban-hammer very quickly if he gets a physical attack boost, anyway.

The thought that Megas will deter Garchomp is absurd, though; we don't know how many there will be an in any event he's only getting one because he's popular. If anything he's one of the things other Pokemon will need Megas to deal with! Mega Mewtwo is the same, but he can take excetion just because Game Freak seems to want to brace him to deal with any future power creep. Garchomp is one of the faces of that power creep, even if Mewtwo himself can deal with him fine.


I wouldn't doubt GF giving chompy Dragon Dance as a new move for him like Dragon Pulse with Ampharos.
