Mega Latias - better than Lugia?

#1RatheVPosted 2/22/2014 12:12:45 PM
80\80\90\110\130\110 (Latias)
80\100\120\140\150\110 (M-Latias)
106\90130\90\154\110

The lack of multiscale and leftovers might hurt her overall bulk, but she still has excellent recovery options in recover and roost. Her typing is also superior, eliminating the stealth rocks weakness as well as giving her several key resistances.

Most importantly, her lovely base 140 special attack - 50 more than what Lugia has to play with - will allow her to hit hard, 2HKOing a huge chunk of the meta while retaining bulk and speed.

At any rate, M-Latias will surely be a suspect for Ubers long before her deadbeat brother. Regardless of where she ends up in Smogon's tiers, we can hopefully look forward to seeing Mega Latias all over the VGC scene in a year or two.

Is this a joke or was there actually info released on their stats?

Someone hacked the Lati@site.
Then used it on a 6IV Lat@s (with known EV spread).
Then it is an easy calc for the base stats

Ah ok, cool, if that's the case and these base stats are accurate then mega latias will shine a lot brighter than mega latios which will be cool to see.

Edit: Not sure if she will be better than the great wall though.

Stats don't mean everything..being weak to common ice, dragon, fairy, ghost, and dark. Great Offensively, but lugia is still the god of defenses

Lugia is weak to most of those, and latias outspeeds and destroys most dragons.

Smogon will suspect test that within two weeks. I hope that it is banned from ranked battles.

If the meta can handle her, then it means its also ready for lugia.
