Is anyone else kinda sad that Mega Evolutions...

might end up taking away the possibilities of real evolutions?

Of course i'm not talking about every pokemon, but at least to some of them.

Banette, Mawlie and Absol imo, all had potential to get a real evolutions, in Banette's case, his Mega Form model would be really cool as an evolution itself.

And before people say gen IV and all that stuff...it's subjective.

I liked when gen 4 brought in a bunch of new evolutions for older pokemon who coulda used them. But there were a fair amount of people who didn't, and felt like those spots were better used for new pokemon.

Are you seriously asking if something is stupid about an economy made up out of hats?

A bit, yeah.


But I like the design of a lot of Mega Evolutions, and a lot of things they chose to mega evolve did look pretty much done evolving (like Pinsir, Manectric and Houndoom). Of course that's subjective but eh.

Those pokemon were never intended to be provided with a regular evolution, they would have done it by now if that was the case. And considering how the Mega Evolution drastically changes those 3 mediocre pokemon into very good pokemon, I can only say that this was for the best. Mega Mawile has the highest attack stat in the game thanks to pure power.

with a lot of megas you can now give a life orb to many other pokemon
and some megas, like abomasnow, are amazing

though i think mega abomasnow should have been a regular evo

Honestly, using the "can't have life orb" argument is such a lame and petty way to try to undermine a Mega Evolution's utility, specially when ignoring the boons they receive in order to make up for the lack of item. Mega Mawile doesn't need a life orb and several pokemon don't appreciate the health loss.

But that's the thing, those Pokemons could've been better without the necessity of Mega-Evolution, giving more solid options to use them, Venosaur is a strong mega-evolution, but he can be good on his own right as well, and mega is limited to one, so if you decided to use them on the same team, only one would be decent while the others would stay underwhelming.

I agree that stuff like Mawile should have gotten a real evo, Veinsaur should NEVER get a REAL evo. That would be waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too broken.

It could have, yes. Either way, I'm satisfied that those pokemon got what they got and are out of the garbage having their time to shine in the spotlight.
