Disagree with Mega Gardevoir. It easily outclasses the original. dat 165 Base Special Attack

Mega Heracross is good if you pull it out at the right time because itd easy to throw your opponent off guard.

Not sure why Mega T-Tar and Mega Houndoom are low. Maybe there's a hold item both heavily depend on?

Uh...MegaAmpharos is missing.
#7tarzanmxPosted 10/25/2013 3:54:24 PM
Disagree on Mega-Banette.
It's great for disrupting things and the priority's a nice touch.

Why, hello.

How is Mega Banette worse than the original and/or not worth it? It gets Prankster and Destiny Bond! And Cotton Guard, and Calm Mind, and all other kinds of status moves that Prankster gives +1 priority to!

I disagree with a few, but the one that I really don't get is Garchomp.

MegaChomp is a completely different animal than Garchomp. It's slower, but much bulkier and hits like a truck (especially with Sandstorm up). Comparing MegaChomp and Garchomp doesn't even really make sense in my mind. They're effectively different Pokemon.

What's also cool is that you can choose -when- to mega evolve it. You can use Garchomp's speed, possibly bluffing a choice item, and then mega evolve if the situation calls for it. The obvious downside is the lack of an item on the un-mega evolved Garchomp. But I certainly think there's potential.
