Also, anyone have a pinsir they would be willing to give to me?

Also, will pinsir's ability pre mega really matter much?

I'm no expert, but if you're using just for Mega Pinsir, I'd say Hyper Cutter on the off chanse you run into Intimadate.

I can make you a Pinser egg if you want.

Indeed, it would make much more sense.

As for Mega Pinsir in VGC, while he doesn't have to worry about Stealth Rock, I'm not sure what role he'll really fill. Using Thrash is almost out of the question because of it randomly targeting a Pokemon and Double-Edge will be seldom found, so Return will be his Flying-move. His pitiful HP and typing hold back any sort of bulk advantage he might have as well, but at least his speed is right in the sweet spot beating out base 100s. He's powerful and quick, but I'm not sure how he really stands out from your other Mega options.

I plan on using Mega Pinsir competitively. I'm thinking about a Swords Dance set consisting of Swords Dance, Quick Attack, X-Scissor, and Storm Throw. I think it'll perform impressively.

Also, I do not see Double-Edge on Pinsir's learnset. Where might it be, perhaps? :?
