Who is the most Dangerous Mega?

#51TAINTED ENIGMAPosted 3/29/2014 8:57:25 AM
I am being contrary, but I ran Mega Gengar for a while and have fought against a number of them. The biggest threat was consistently how common Earthquake is and it works for me. I've had to choose not to megavolve on enough occasions that I ditched Mega Gengar regardless of the Smogon ban.

At all

It's called a troll, look it up. I'm sorry it worked better than I wanted, because my point fell to wayside. I give up.

Clearly, just because there is a counter to Mega Gengar doesn't illegitimize the ban. I still would argue that Mega Gengar is glassy enough and Earthquake is common enough on non-STAB builds that I didn't get the impression that there was an inherent brokenness. I also am using my experience to back this claim, it doesn't make me a pro, but it doesn't prove I'm not a pro, either.

Earthquake isn't a counter. It's a check at best.

I was once modded for illegal activity because I made a topic asking for advice on nicknaming my Pokemon.

I started using Mega Blastoise, and it really is one of the best Megas that I've used. With access to excellent coverage with Aura Sphere, Dark Pulse, and Water Pulse, and an additional 50% power boost to these moves, Mega Blastoise is an incredible bulky sweeper.

While mega Gengar is dangerous, you know in general what it's going to do. It'll either Sub-Disable, Perish-Trap, or all out attacker.

Mega Charizard, however, has two different Megas which have two, completely different sets of counters, decent bulk, and a large variety of sets making it really hard to know what it's going to do. Just because you see a Charizard and know it's the Mega, you've only fought half the battle.

The lack of mega medicham saddens me... It can pretty much 1-2 hit KO the entire meta... It needs more love, also herrocross.. Dat base 185 attack is op!

Mega Gengar. Shadow Tag shouldn't be on something with that much offensive presence.
#60FightingPolygonPosted 3/29/2014 2:18:16 PM
Mega Banette because Prankster Destiny Bond/Cotton Guard.
Mega Medicham/Mawile because of that Attack Stat.
Mega Aggron because if you don't have a special attacker, you're f***ed.
Mega Charizard X/Gyarados because once it gets that first Dragon Dance off, it's GG.
Mega Scizor because Bullet Punch obliterates stuff unless resisted.

TBH, all Megas are threatening in their own ways.
