C/D: Mega Evolution is a new battle mechanic, not new Pokemon

C - A regular evolved pokemon does not revert to its previous state after a battle. It's just a new battle mechanic and thing to scheme around.
Thank you Bobby Cox, have a good retirement.

If they were actual new pokemon, they would be normal evolutions.

it's a mechanic because it's a method not a pokemon.

D. New Pokemon. They're evolutions that take a item slot and need you to press a button every battle. The end.
The first thing a god masters is itself.
Legion is a Badass. So is Mordin.

They are a mixture of the two. They are new designs and change the way a pokemon is played to the point of basically being an evolution. It is just temporary and has a layer of strategy of when to use it.
Mewtwo has got his throne back! BST 780! Take that Arceus!

They are not new pokemon, just a new form. I wouldn't consider Giratina-O to be a new pokemon even though it has a different ability and different stats. I kinda see mega evolutions in the same way.
