Mega Evolution Idea: Mega Luxray

#1TheHolyBidoofPosted 7/7/2014 11:15:26 AM
This is going to be a series I will be doing, where I pick a certain Pokémon, make a Mega Evolution for it, and have you guys let me know what you think.

Mega Evolution #1:

Mega Luxray

Mega Stone Needed: Luxite

Type: Electric-Fighting

Ability: No Guard

Design: Luxray on its hind legs but beefed up, Lucario-ish, Sort of humanoid

Stats:

--------Luxray--------Mega Luxray
Atk.-----120---------------167
Def.------79----------------91
Sp. Atk.--95---------------129
Sp. Def.--79----------------91
Spe-------70---------------142
Total-----523--------------620

Other Information:
Shinx can be bred to know Close Combat.
Luxray is compatible with the Shadow Ball, Shadow Claw, Dark Pulse, Focus Blast, Brick Break, Low Sweep, Power-Up Punch and Rock Smash TMs.
Luxray learns Shadow Sneak and Metal Claw through level-up.
If Luxray is taken to the OR/AS Move Tutor while holding Luxite, Luxray can be tutored the standard Luxray Move Tutor moves along with Focus Punch, Thunder Punch, Close Combat, Mach Punch, Bullet Punch, Dynamic Punch, Comet Punch, Mega Punch, Mega Kick, Double Kick, Triple Kick and High Jump Kick.

My Opinion:
I think this is pretty good, as Luxray has good stat boosts, with incredible boosts to the Attack and Speed stats. The Speed stat isn't the best, but can outspeed quite a couple of things. The second typing of Fighting gives Mega Luxray three more weaknesses (Flying, Fairy, and Psychic) that it didn't have before it Mega Evolved, but Luxray has access to moves that cover all of those. And what about that ability? Luxray can now land Thunders and Dynamic Punches without fear of missing.

Sample Moveset:

Luxray @ Luxite
Ability: Intimidate
Nature: Adamant/Jolly
EVs: 252 Atk. / 252 Spe / 4 HP
-Dynamic Punch
-Thunder Punch
-Bullet Punch
-Shadow Sneak

Thank you for reading this! Let me know what you think!

You totally went overboard on speed. I don't see that happening.

Already the fact that you didn't suggest Luxray become Electric/Dark is good.

But I don't know if Electric/Fighting is better.

also it kind of looks OP

You included HP on the original BST, but not on the Mega BST, essentially giving Luxray an added 180 points as opposed to the usual 100.

Your base stat total went from 523 to 700. Get real.

High speed + High attack + STAB + No Guard + Dynamic Punch? Yeah that's not broken at all.

Then it gets drain punch as a form of recovery?

Are you even trying to balance it? Might as well give it volt tackle.
