>Pokemon became Digimon

Was mega evolution really an addition that was needed?
>>
Probably not, but Pokemon could crimp every other gimmick Digimon has and no one would care, because Digimon is hot garbage.
>>
Yes, we've been asking for it literally since Red and Blue
>mfw Pinsir is finally good
>mfw Charcoal and Mewthree are real
>mfw Pokemon I never even imagined to be compatible with "Mist Stones" have Mega Stones
>>
mega evolution is kind of awkward imo but it's not that bad
>>
Remember Pokemon ReBurst?
>>
>>322548596
DESU they should make Reburts a thing in the game
>>
>>322548596
It was better than the Adventures manga, at least

Good idea but they went to far in some places. They should've reserved it only for Pokés that needed it, or when given to powerful/slash legendary Pokémon it should change the way they play instead of simply making them more overpowered. I don't get how Sugimori claimed Mega Kanga was overpowered but didn't say anything against Rayquayquay.
>>
They should've just added evolutions or improved the stats for some pokemon. Bannette could've gotten an evolution but now it's forever shit.

Was it needed? No. Is it still cool? I think so.
>>
>>322546678
It's a really lazy way for Nintendo to make underpowered Pokemon at least semi-viable. The problem with mega-evolutions occurs when Nintendo decides to add mega-evolutions to already good pokemon (Lucario, Salamence, etc.) in which case it either makes them completely broken or really overpowered.
>>
I hate it. It didn't fit in with the "lore" and screwed with the gameplay too.
>>
>>322549968
>It didn't fit in with the "lore"

How exactly?
>>
>>322549968
what fucking lore? new pokemon and new methods of evolution are found all the time in the in game universe, how does this not fit in?
>>
I like Mega Evolutions conceptually to fit with the "3 evolution rule" of Pokemon. Something like Charizard was doomed to be mediocre forever due to it, but I didn't want Pokemon to start introducing 4th evolutions, then 5th evolutions, and so on, because it would be retarded.
Same with buffing Legendaries, especially Mewtwo. That was one of the best things about it. "Mewtwo's the ultimate Pokemon!" "Yeah now we have god" >780 BST mega "As we were SAYING"

Now I have hopes for things like Wigglytuff, Flygon, Jumpluff, etc to all be good as like, Beedrill, Pidgeot, Ampharos, and Gallade's megas were.

My complaint is the other things. Mawile could've had a regular evolution and a baby. So could shit like Audino. They really didn't need to be cemented as the highest stage of their evolution families. Especially shit like Houndoom, Banette and Manectric.

You don't understand though Mence desperately needed a broken mega he needs all the help he can get

Fuck you gamefreak

>>322552835
>>322553645
and this is why I use "Special" it's confusing when you have a seperate manga that also calls itself "Adventure"
>>
>>322553607
Yeah. On the other hand, I don't know why they gave a Mega to Audino. That thing was already overpowered.
>>
>>322546678
Was mega evolution needed?

Not really but a lot of older pokemon were falling out of favour due to power creep.

At least it's given some a new breath of life like Kangaskhan, Mawile, Pinsir, Ampharos and Gardevoir.

I'd still prefer it if they continued buffing the base forms though. Look at pokemon such as Dragonite; powerful enough even without a mega thanks to Multiscale and the new item Weakness Policy.

Mega Evolutions are a very sterile idea and lame in practice.

Nah man Raichu being in the 110 speed tier changes everything. Now it can get a hit in before dying and being useless.

Mega evolution is mostly fine. It's a nice compromise for Pokemon that need an evolution but are the third in their line or their design is too "final" to give one, a mistake gen 4 made with some Pokemon. But they got carried away with it, giving it to too many cool and popular Pokemon who really don't need it and ignoring some who need any kind of help they can get. While some of the gen 4 evolutions are shit design wise I do personally like most of them and I hope they don't just use mega evolution as an excuse to never give an evolution to any older Pokemon.

You should try the remake for gen 2. Best in the series
>>
>>322555225
I'm glad they didn't go overboard like they did in gen 5. There's not much new Pokémon in gen 6 but I think almost all of them are some top tier designs. Only ones I don't like are Delphox (it's hidden ability is shit and it could use a wider movepool) and Goodra (because fuck you Sugimori you ruined another line).

It had to jump the shark eventually.

>>322555991

I bet you're one of those shit-eaters whose favorite gen is 3.
>>
>>322557393
Gen 3 is objectively better though. It introduced abilities which would change Pokémon battling forever. It also changed the IV and EV system so that the same Pokémon wouldn't have the same stats. It also had new fossil Pokémon unlike Gen 2.
>>
>>322546678
It's added competitive depth with team preview. It's also fucked up competitive battling because GameFreak balances mons with a fucking mallet.
