Do you think mega Lati@s will be banned?

Mega Latios is going to not be worth anything. Unless Latios itself gets tested (won't happen), Mega Latios is not going anywhere.

Mega Latias is probably not going anywhere either. It may be great looking, but it is not overpowering offensively, and it lacks hazards. Getting banned as a Pokemon like that is quite difficult. We'll see though.

It depends on how hard they are to revenge kill. Mega Latios only does slightly less damage than his LO counter part and is not going to be anywhere near as easy to kill with the extra bulk and lack of recoil.


this.

252 SpA Life Orb Latias Psyshock vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Clefable: 133-157 (33.7 - 39.8%) -- 29.2% chance to 3HKO after Leftovers recovery

252 SpA Mega Latias Psyshock vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Clefable: 121-144 (30.7 - 36.5%) -- guaranteed 4HKO after Leftovers recovery

252 SpA Life Orb Latios Psyshock vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Clefable: 149-177 (37.8 - 44.9%) -- guaranteed 3HKO after Leftovers recovery

252 SpA Mega Latios Psyshock vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Clefable: 135-159 (34.2 - 40.3%) -- 40.6% chance to 3HKO after Leftovers recovery

both mega lati@s do 3-4% less then life orb lati@s, yet my previous post shows mega scizor doing 8-10% less them life orb scizor, yet no one is saying scizor sucks and is uu only.

I'm not sure if you're intentionally skewing the facts or not. Of course Scizor/Mega Scizor are going to have a bigger gap in damage between them when you're using a SE hit.

Difference is Scizor uses its added mega bulk to check a lot of things while hitting decently hard for a mostly defensive pokemon. Mega Latios has basically the same role and a 9% power drop in special attack is actually huge. Power Drop would be fine if it had a speed stat over 110.

You're comparing it to completely different things and I'm not sure what any of it is supposed to do in regards to bolstering your argument.


so comparing a mega who got more bulk to another who gets more use do to it's added bulk are two different things?

both mega scizor and mega lati@s got a nice increase in there defenses, yet both there normal forms do more damage with a life orb, so exactly how is it different? or did you just not bother to read the whole post?


You're comparing Mega Latios to Mega Kangaskhan.

You seem to forget that Mega Kangaskhan has arguably the best ability in the game, while Mega Latios gets Levitate.

Megas can change three things:
Stats: We know Mega Latios' stats, and we KNOW regular Latios does more damage
Typing: We know it doesn't change
Ability: We know it doesn't change

For your comparison to work AT ALL, you have to completely ignore Parental Bond, which is Mega Kangaskhan's only appeal


Thanks, you said pretty much all I was going to say.


except i wasn't comparing lati@s to mega kangaskhan as we know it now. if you read my post correctly, you would see i was comparing it to PRE RELEASE mega kangaskhan, when we didn't know just how strong it would really be. during pre release, people were laughing at the idea of mega khan going to ubers because lol normal type. just like everyone is laughing at mega lati@s as even being useable do to being out classed, when we haven't even gotten to see what they can actually do, just like PRE RELEASE mega khan.

Ok, but the big difference is that pre-release, we didn't know anything about mega-khan other than that it could hit twice. We've got all of Mega Latios's stats, and access to calculators, so there's really not anything to see here.
