YR: Megas get their own signature moves

#1sonic2307Posted 7/10/2014 5:55:26 AM
They are just like any other move except they can only be used while mega (it will fail if you're not). Such as...

Mega Alakazam~ Psyplosion

Psychic type (Special)
BP: 130
Acc: 100
PP: 5-8

"A massive explosion of psychic energy engulfs the entire battlefield. This attack does physical damage"

Can this make megas that are outclassed by their non-megas better?

What mega is outclassed by its non-mega? Please don't say Alakazam because that's wrong.

It'd be an opportunity to give Gyarados a Dark STAB, but idk if I'd use such a move. There are some situations where you wouldn't want to go Mega right away* and then you have yourself a dead moveslot.

*Gyarados is a good example as it trades immunities, Manectric is another one if you absolutely need an Electric immunity in a fight, tough that one may be a little iffy.

Also, Mega pokemon may have lower potential damage output thx to no access to LO or Choice anything, but most Megas make up for it by performing a different role or, in Scizor's case, not being Choice locked.

Make this a 5th slot, and it's on like Donkey Kong.

I'll be happy if they just gave MegaGary a bloody Crunch attack as his signature, really.

Latios isn't outclassed unless you use Soul Dew, which I don't know if Lati@s is allowed in VGC, but I know Soul Dew is banned from Lati@s.

Latios turns into a great mixed attacker and a great DD set.

The problem is that his physical movepool isn't exactly very broad.
