Mega Evolution = Missed opportunity for some Pokemons?

#1RollerBobPosted 9/25/2013 5:16:34 PM
Am I the only one to think this?

A Mega Evolution seems to occur only when the Pokémon is at its last stage... meaning that Pokémons like Lucario, Mawile, Absol and Kangaskhan pretty much won't get an evolution due to that.

I feel like they went for a Mega evolution so they won't have to design a real evolution for them.

I doubt Lucario was going to get an evolved form anyway.

Sad news for Mawile, though.

Those things you listed never had an opportunity. Some things were born to suck, Lucario excluded.

No, because evolutions are only useful in battle. Outside of battle it doesn't make a difference, unless it is a type change.

No. This has been discussed to death already.

Bring them round back.

Though I was at least hoping they'd rectify the fact that Kangaskhan is born with a live baby in its pouch.

Not all pokemon need 3 stages.

I don't hate the idea of mega evolutions, but I do hate some of Gamefreak's decisions regarding them. Mawile did not need a mega evolution; it needed a regular evolution. Same with Kengaskhan. Do whatever you want with them after that, but ending the line with a gimmicky forme change that takes up a precious item slot is very poor decision making.

But then again, I'm thinking from the mindset of a competitive battler, which I know Gamefreak doesn't give two shakes of **** about.
