Are any of the mega evolutions actually an upgrade?

All the cool ones seem to be a step down from their predecessor because of the ability changes, lack of held item, and etc.

Are any of them an actual upgrade?

Mawile, Gengar, Mewtwo's, Aggron and Lucario are all great improvements.

IMO Venusaur gets a full upgrade.
All the stats are either equal or better than it's normal form, and it gets thick fat which negates it's ice and fire weaknesses.

420Blazeitkien seems to be all the rage. Same with gengar because of 'dat speed'.


Everything else seems like whatever.

Uh yes? All of them?

Mega Evolution instantly gives your pokemon 100 more BST. So while some get abilities that aren't great, they get way better stats.

Charizard seems more viable.

Mega Kangaskahn, is amazing.


Parental Bond (Two attacks even if one is weaker), Boost to all stats giving it over 100 in every stat bar Special ATK.


Absol obtained even better ATK/decent SPATK, and amazing speed. Plus it has a great new ability.

Gyarados is 50/50. On one hand yes it gains EQ neutrality losing Flying type, but it also loses Stone Edge weakness. /etc.

A decent amount of Megas improve or offer a different choice to the Pokemon in question.

You lose out on items though. An example is Mega Medicham can't use Choice Scarf anymore so it can't outspeed like regular Medicham can
