The Best and Worst Mega Evolutions
I love Pokemon Mega Evolutions. There is something attractive about the concept of Pokemon elevating to another level beyond a normal form. Pokemon going Super Saiyan is how I like to describe Mega Evolutions to to my friends. Mega Evolution’s make – what was already a complex metagame – even more complicated.
Typical of the world of Pokemon – not all Pokemon are born equal – in this case not all Mega Evolutions are blessed with awesomeness. Some Mega Evolved Pokemon are super powerful borderline overpowered while others are merely great Pokemon that would fit well with normal Pokemon. So here is my list of the best and worst Mega Evolutions.
The Worst Mega Evolutions
I like Mega Manectric. As a standalone Pokemon Mega Manectric is an awesome Pokemon, but as a mega evolved Pokemon he is just average. Mega Manectric additional 100 base stat is more or less distributed into every stat, which makes it a well around Pokemon. However amongst other Mega Evolved Pokemon – Mega Manectric can seem anemic – especially since its movepool is extremely limited. For this reason Mega Manectric is one of the worst mega evolved Pokemon.
Mega Ampharos is by no mean a bad Pokemon. It has good defences and sublime special attack, however unfortunately Mega Ampharos is terribly slow. To reach Mega Ampharos potential you will need a supportive team. Paralyis Support? Trick Room? Tailwind? Since Mega Ampharos requires a good deal of support, it does not hold up well, especially amongst the mega evolved Pokemon.
Mega Kangaskhan is without a doubt a unique Pokemon. The signature ability Parental Bond – allows the Pokemon to attack twice with second attack being. With that said – Mega Kangaskhan lacks the same punch of other Mega Evolve Pokemon. Amongst a group where some Pokemon have base stats up to 185 – Mega Kangaskhan is child’s play.
The Best Mega Evolutions
This list would have not have any credibility if Mega Blaziken was not included. Mega Blaziken is a monster that can go physical, special or mixed. With the sublime ability “Speed Boost” Blaziken is absolutely adept in sweeping and destroying teams. In my opinion Mega Blaziken is a top tier Pokemon and most certainly one of the best mega evolved Pokemon.
Probably from all the meditation – Mega Alakazam is a Pokemon of clarity. It serves one purpose that is to wreak havoc. A base 175 Special attack is nothing to laugh at, and it ain’t no slouch boasting a base 150 speed. Mega Alakazam is an extremely dangerous Pokemon and that is why it is one of the best mega evolved Pokemon.
OH GODZIRRA – Its Godzirra. Tyranitar was a sublime Pokemon – one that is versatile and most often the core of the team. Mega Tyranitar is an impressive upgrade from its normal form. Good HP. Great attack, great defense, great special defense, and a usable Special defense not to mention the fantastic ability “Sand Stream”. This is a blessed Pokemon and one of the best mega evolved Pokemon.
