I'm worried that there will be too many megas at some point.

They're great, and I love them, but with every new one made, it's going to be harder to decide which one to use.


there already are too many. 1 was too many.

TC, I agree. I'm a little worried Megas are going to be the go-to for balance and lolFreak will create chaos with a bunch of OP 'mons because they suck at balance, at least for singles. I think it's nice when Pokemon shine through their niches rather than a 100 point stat dump.

But whatever, I guess I could just not use them. I just think too many will break the already scotch-taped-together balance.


My point is not so much balance, but having to choose between favourites, or even which would be better for a team. I play doubles, so balance is less of an issue for me (though Talonflame has caused me to change my team a few times).


Even in that case, I have like two dozen favorites so I can't fit them all on one team regardless. I just cycle through ones I like, only difference is i can only use one Mega at a time.

You kidding?
Megas were what brought me from 'oh, another pokemon game' to 'OH HELL YEAH A REASON TO PLAY'.

Gen seven will probably make it two Megas per team when they reach around 100 or so.

I dunno, maybe. Apparently in the dev stages of Gen 3 they were planning on allowing 7 Pokemon per team. That would've been some s***

And 719 different ones isn't?


If you mean that there are 719 Pokemon to choose between for a team, that's a little untrue. I guess you /could/ use a Chikorita on a team, but that's pretty unrealistic.

TC, I agree. I'm a little worried Megas are going to be the go-to for balance and lolFreak will create chaos with a bunch of OP 'mons because they suck at balance, at least for singles. I think it's nice when Pokemon shine through their niches rather than a 100 point stat dump.

It is good that they suck for balance in singles. Hopefully people will realize that singles is inherently unbalanced and more will play doubles, triples, etc.

Sadly, too many people believe Singles should be the sole online playstyle, and it's the pinnacle of strategy. And then they actually try doubles or triples and rage that their usual strats don't work. Like "Talonflame erryhing" or Thundurcancer actually make battles fun :/

And Talonflame still shuts down entire types if you're not prepared.
