Pokemon Omega Ruby

Being the follow up to Pokémon X&Y it is natural to expect that Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will feature the new Mega Evolution forms. I quite enjoyed the Mega Evolutions – not only does it add an extra layer to the already, but the whole idea of Pokémon going Super Saiyan is the coolest thing to happen to Pokémon since Infernape.

Pokémon X& Y introduced a pretty impressive line-up of Mega Evolved Pokémon – however – there is plenty of room to expand the cast of powered up Pokémon. With the release of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, this November, GameFreaks could potential unveil more Mega Evolutions for our playing pleasure. The more I thought about it – I noticed a large proportion of Mega Evolved Pokemon are from Generation 3.  There is Mega Bannette, Mega Manectric, Maga Aggron, Mega Gardevoir, Mega Absol, Mega Medicham and Mega Blaziken – all of which could potentially be featured in the next entry of Pokemon. While GameFreak is at it – they might as well add a few more Mega Evolutions to the family in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire

So here are 5 Mega Evolutions I would like to see in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.

1-2. Mega Sceptile  & Mega Swampert

Blaziken got an overpowered Mega Evolution; it only makes sense that the other starters of Gen 3 get an additional form.  Mega Sceptile and Mega Swampert would be awesome additions to the Mega Evolution family. Sceptile is fast, swift and packs a relative strong punch with the signature move – Leaf Blade. On the other hand Swampert fits the description of Tank perfectly; slow, bulky and strong. While both Pokémon are strong in their own right, they have not able to maintain strong presences in high tier play (Swampert had a decent run in OU during the D/P days). With a Mega Evolved form – just maybe, Swampert and Sceptile will final get the attention they deserve.

3. Mega Salamence

I know many would argue that Salamence is already powerful as it is. But, I would argue you can never be too powerful in Pokémon, especially with so many fast and hard hitting Pokémon running around. To level out the playing field – powering up existing Pokémon appears to be the responsible thing to do. Mega Salamence just makes sense to me – the Pokémon is the trademark dragon for generation 3, not to mention it is one of the most powerful and versatile NON legendary Pokémon to ever grace the metagame. If this bad boy gets a Mega Evolution – I will be elated.


4. Mega Metagross

This list would have no credibility if I didn’t include Metagross. Considered as one of the most powerful introduced in generation 3 and one of the fiercest steel type ever – Metagross is screaming for a Mega Evolution. Metagross doesn’t exactly need the stat boost from the transformation per se –  but, he would look pretty awesome with a Mega Evolution – particularly if you have a shiny laying around in you PC box.



5. Mega Mightyena

The poster child of Team Magma/Aqua. I’ve always had a soft spot for Mightyena, but his below average stats and abysmal movepool has held this poor mutt back from realizing its potential for far too long. For the remake, I would like to see the mighty Mightyena receive a new Mighty form in the form of a Mega Evolution.
