Well first you gotta evolve Bagon to Shellgon when he reaches level 30, then when Shellgon gets to 50 he'll evolve to Salamance. Then when ORAS comes out there's gonna be a new mega stone that you can use to get to the mega Salamance.
>later evolutions that actually improved the design
So dragonite mega will end up looking good right? right?
/vp/ defends fucking ANYTHING Gamefreak does. Anyone who does otherwise is passed off a genwunner.
your just jelly of it hair
Magneton looked uninspired, magnezone is a good finishing evo
that said I want old dragonite back
This is easily my favorite mega evolution.
Anyone notice how pokemon kind of evolve backwards to the real world? Instead of becoming more streamlined, and adapted. They become cumbersome and less capable?
Crobat can no longer land on shit. Squirtle turns into a fucking 5'3" tall turtle with fucking cannons.
Swinub goes backwards in fucking time.
And now mega-salamence becomes a dive bomber, and lost his front legs. He's not even a real dragon anymore.
>inb4 dragon debate
>I've devoted more of my time to this children's activity than you, so I'm right and that makes you an au-wait
Megas literally killed the franchise for me. There is not a single good one and they were unnecesary.
Where I don't like some gen4 evos like Electivire or Magmortar, we should have gotten more of them instead of Mega Salamence.
i just cant get over mega evolutions. why. why not just evolve heracross and mawile normally. I know charizard is usable now but some of the shittier 2 stage evos could use some work first
why did it not just keep it arms and the red glow before the armor locks in is way better then the final all it need was to fix the wings... and we got are selfs an ok mega.
My darling Swampert, what have they done to you.
Literally the only one that actually looks like a Pokemon and it shouldn't even be a Mega but a last evolutionary line.
I wonder where they got the inspiration for that design from.
There is no "old Dragonite. That sprite is supposed to look like this.
>no shedinja mega-evo that's immune to passive damage as well
So what's the story behind mega evolutions? Last pokemon game I played was Emerald.
Did the lab people find out how to alter DNA or something instead of just letting kids do their jobs for them?
A giant sundial in a Kalos city converted sun energy into radiation that caused mutations of stones like Fire Stones. The radiation from these stones have a wavelength that match the wavelength of certain Pokemon. When these are combined along with the use of a Pokemon trainer's mega item they cause mega evolution
Salamence didn't usually flap its wings. It used air sacs for levitation, and the wings were for gliding, which is why they always looked sort of out of place. Bagon and Shellgon FORCE themselves to evolve this because of what they live around: two floating rocks. That's the only flight they usually ever see. So that's what they do. Levitate.
>Houndoom has a mega form
>Give him armour
>Not 3 heads like cerberus
>Not even 2 heads
Atleast Banette looks ok I guess.
>tfw they ruined tyranitar
Atleast my darling Quagsire is safe.
Also the only Eeveeloution I dislike is the fairy one. Not too bad I guess.
mega where give to popular pokemon 1st Charzard got 2 do to it being super popular only get x mega in x (dragon chazard) and fire final in y
see pokemon pokemon origins or pokemon xy special the strongest mega evolution
even his Y design is better
>No one ever said Mr Mime is fine.
Actually the fact it's glossed over while saying "anything after gen # is bad" rather than pointing out the exception kinds of means they are saying that.
It is a childrens game, to be fair.
What really baffles me is that there are people that play pokemon games competitively. How competitive can a game where only 4 moves are possible?
>The wing color looks awkward and out of place.
That's the color stag beetle wings are in real life.
If he's banned from the banlist then doesn't that mean he's unbanned?
This, I tried explaining why I wouldn't pay 5 bucks for 3mb of storage and they told me I was poor.
You know like, even if there's like 4gigs of free space on my 3ds and more than 3mb on the XY cartridges itself.
I also tried explaining that after buying their games each year I won't pay for DLC.
But hey, reason I no longer visit /vp/.
>still gets raped by rocks
Old zard at least was friendly looking, now it's edgy badass tier
>How competitive can a game where only 4 moves are possible?
That's where you miss the point, the whole reason it's competitive is because you have a limited moveset across your whole team so you have to make strategic decisions over what that Pokémon is going to do during battle.
If you had more available every Pokémon would be too versatile as any Pokémon could do offense, defense and support if their full movepool was available.
>someone drew this and thought "yes, this looks good"
>then someone else approved
possibly from this?
looks pretty good and fits in with the concept of the pokemon.
did you not see this?
Right, because the other sudden mutations are totally not disturbing, where pokemon suddenly develop growths or contort and gain/lose limbs, and suddenly have matter out of nowhere for extra spikes.
Khengiskhan is the only one that isnt bullshit.
>Its non-mega's axe wings made more sense
Yeah because those wings can really lift a creature that size. The Mega evolution atleast seems in proportion for the wings to act like a hanglider.
i miss pokemon
lewd/spoiler] threads on /v/
>on train with friends going to Pokemon contest
>not there to compete, just for friend support stuff
>friends and I playing 3DS on train and just messing around
>pretty cute girl ends up joining us on the train
>turns out she lives less than 5 minutes from where I live
>says I should come over some time if I ever wanna have a battle or something
She was nice. Traded my shiny Shuckle for her shiny Wobbuffet. Small world though.
>There is literally nothing wrong with /vp/
Haha oh boy
I used to go there often, the user base is younger than /v/ and it shows in their posting styles. Furry porn is not uncommon and there is a eternal role playing thread that has been alive since the board started.
Did Nolan designed Mega Salamence?
Everything you said applies to /v/ ten fold more than any other board, in addition to an abundance of SJW and feminazi bullshit, especially with all this Zoe and Vivian cancer threads full of underage neo /v/ cunts, as well as trap threads, furry threads that includes furry shit from anything furry related, "feel "threads, constant off topic bullshit, etc
>no Gen 1-5 pokemon will ever get a regular evolution again because of this Digivolution shit
make your own OC doughnut steel digievolution better than fucking official ones
>finding out what the latest news is
If all you want is news then just check the front page of serebii once a day. Takes like 30 seconds and tells you all you could ever need to know.
you are a fucking genoner and you fucking now it, le mr. mime was so good design right?! and the niggerette so racist xD! You are an idiot. New designs are as good, take off yer nostalgiagogggles grampa! kek
Not only is it the best looking Mega, it is also one of the most broken Pokemon ever.
>it has been, what? 13 years now?
>STILL doesn't know SHIT about color theory
>dark grey and lime green = good color choices
>STILL using MSPaint to make banners stretched as fuck to fit the width
>STILL , FUCKING STILL manually signing "Until next time, see ya! 251.png"
Its banned in most singles formats, for doubles I recommend
Power up Punch
Really no need for a complicated strategy, just hit things really hard and they die.
Anon, not that guy but color theory isn't artistic bullshit, it's used in advertising because it's scientifically proved to work. Color theory is important in all kinds of design.
Mega-evolution is the worst thing to happen to Pokemon, after the fairy type. Now we get stupid shit like Slowbro getting a horrible mega form instead of a normal evolution, making him useless for an eternity.
Sometimes I have trouble remembering that Charizard is a playable character in Smash.
>Color theory is important in all kinds of design.
Yes I'll have a side of fries with that, thanks.
>after the fairy type
Anon, you retard, that was NEEDED for balance.
>Now we get stupid shit like Slowbro getting a horrible mega form instead of a normal evolution, making him useless for an eternity.
I'm a retard too, until now I thought slowbro evolved into slowking...
>people are generally nicer and enjoy talking about Pokemon, keeping shitposting to a minimum
HOLY SHIT IT HAS ARMS! I DIDNT EVEN REALIZE
LAUGHING MY ASS OFF RIGHT NOW
Well you're getting rid of an item for the +100 BST, but it is better for bulky builds. It's not a bad mega, but it seems like a pretty small boost in comparison to other megas.
>it's only just now feeling pain from the shellder's bite
Yes because a wall with a shit ton of defense boosts will surely need to switch out often
HIS WINGS AREN'T EVEN FUCKING REAL IN REGULAR FORM
>losing an amazing ability and item to counter an uncommon tactic
I'd say you have no idea what you're talking about. That said, it looks like the idea behind it is to have regenerator for most of the game as a general wall, and then start setting up with mega shell armor lategame once counters are dealt with. Might end up being alright but it doesn't sound like it's worth it right now, especially when you'd be using up the mega slot that could be used more effectively on another pokemon.
Gen 4 only has a million more sales than gen 3 despite being on a system with almost twice the install base.
Gen 5 sold less than gen 3.
>suck GF's cock
We don't though. It's pretty much agreed that gamefreak has zero idea what the term "balanced" means
Prankster doesn't activate on the turn your it megas.
Speed calcs are always done before megas activate.
As someone who runs Mono Ghost pretty often in OU I will say that while M-Banette has saved my ass a few times there are countless more where it's been a wasted slot tbh.
