Well since Mega Salamence gets aerilate, isn't Mega Pinsir most likely obsolete?

Mega Pinsir was one of my favourites megas in X/Y with a really great upgrade design wise and some really awesome boosts stats wise and getting a unique ability to a very underused pokemon I love. But now Salamence has aerilate and the superior stats (most likely since the other psuedo's got boosted to 700) to pinsir (since bug doesn't have much over dragon besides ice/fairy weakness and super effective on some types). It just kinda saddens me really since salamence is salamence and thus is mostly likely to just outclass him in everyway unfortunately.

Not really.

Salamence lacks SD, meaning it cannot boost to the same power level as fast. At the same time, it lacks any priority, meaning it is much more vulnerable to opposing priority. In all likelyhood, the two will serve very different roles, and not directly compete.

No, Pinsir has Quick Attack which is extremely useful

Pinsir still has priority though.

Depends whether Salamence gets Quick Attack or Extremespeed.

If not, MegaP still has that.

If MegaMence gets Extreme speed I pray for all Fighting types out there.
Especially Heracross ;n;

Would it be that different to Tflame or MPinsir?

Extra power, granted, but nonetheless...

No, because they have completely different niches, typing and stats, and WON'T EVEN BE IN THE SAME TIER. MS is going straight to Ubers so MP will remain the exclusive Aerilater in its own tier, whichever one it ends up in in the end.
#9celticpride6Posted 8/8/2014 8:11:09 AM
Pinsir also gets CC, which let's it get around Skarm and Rotom-W with only two moveslots. Salamence would need to run Fire Fang to get past Skarm and can't get past Washtom. Also, priority helps with certain threats.

But ES has a BP of 80. hits way harder then quick attack, and I never came across a MegaPinsir yet on wifi, its always MegaKhan, MegaBannete or Megamawile with the few MegaManectrics.
