I don't understand Mega Mewtwo Y

These are his stats

Pretty awesome right? Buuuuut...here are regular Mewtwo's stats

106/110/90/154/90/130

My question is, why kill Mewtwo's defense and HUGELY buff an attack that is never going to be used? Especially when MMX is also there and he is DESIGNED for physical attacking!? Not to mention Psystrike, which covers Physical attacking power just fine.

If they hadn't wasted 40 points on improving MMY's worthless attack, they could have instead buffed his Speed more, and perhaps wouldn't have felt the need to lower his defense. In fact, why not LOWER his physical attack, instead of doing that to his defense? It would have filled the same thematic role of showing how MMY is physically less imposing, and wouldn't have hurt his viability to do so.

How about stats like this instead

106/70/120/204/120/160

The increased defenses are explained by innate psychic barriers that he keeps around him subconsciously at all times. His attack is worthless because look at him, his muscles almost look atrophied. His Sp. Attack is even stronger because you have a few more points to throw around (and this helps him make up for the life orb loss) and his speed skyrockets enough that he now doesn't have to worry about anyone who isn't scarfed, and can run Modest without any hesitation.

Doesn't this make more sense and make MMY far, FAR more viable?

There's nothing that sucks worse that that moment in an argument when you realize that you are wrong.

That's too OP, even for Legendary standards.

Why not just go all the way?

I think it's for balance, anyway.

Well, not every Pokemon player plays competitively, so those players who don't know that Mewtwo should stick with Special Attacks might be using Physical Attacks instead. If there were no boost to Attack, then it would feel like it didn't really change much to those players. But at least now when they use a Physical attack in Mega form, they'll notice a difference in power.

Im upset that they buffed Charizard Y's and MegaVoir's ATTACK. Why not their speed(MegaVoir got a 20 speed boost but should've gotten 40 from that useless attack boost)? They need more speed.

As things stand Mewtwo Y isn't even better than regular Mewtwo. If you want to up its Special Attack the trusty specs trump the lame 25% boost his Mega form offers, and Life Orb does almost the same damage as Y does.

They're slower.
