Mega Luxray
Electric/Normal
80
154 (+34)
90 (+11)
95
90 (+11)
114 (+44)
Ability: Strong Jaw

reasons for normal:
- early route critter
- can run STAB return or facade to deal with burns/tox, immune to para anyway
- helps it deal with ghosts despite not being a dark type

- strong jaw for obvious reasons
- outspeeds serperior by one point, because fuck that thing
>>
>>24969559
Ubers?
Did you say Anything Goes or was that not an autocorrect?
>>
>>24969647
With Gale Wings, Archeops would be god tier but not quite Mega-Rayquaza tier. Hey, maybe though. I'd love to see it happen.
>>
>>24969620
I think it'd be better off if you just kept it pure Electric.

>>24969691
I dunno, it kinda sucks that your strongest Flying attack is Acrobatics.
>>
>>24969261
exactly it would be a waste not to make also use of that SpAtk
>>
I always thought Eelektross would make a good psuedo legendary. More interesting than another dragon. Just toss another 85 into speed and it hits 600

Speaking of boring dragons, the Goomy line should have been part bug
>>
>>24970160
it kinda needs to have a second type
if its just a mega with only wilde charge as its best stab than its no better than Electivire
Ice,Dark,Fighting or Fairy be the best for luxray

>>24970240
Elektross Krookodile Haxorus or looked like psuedos
goodra could have be Poison
>>
>>24970339
I meant there's no real reason to make it Electric/Normal, Electric/Dark is fine especially if you're gonna give it Strong Jaw.

It really is a shame about Wild Charge, though. I guess Electric's really more of a special type.
>>
>>24970339
I could buy Krookodile and Haxorus as psuedos, but I'd rather have types we haven't had before

I was trying to look for pokemon from other gens that would make good psuedos, but theres a surprisingly small amount of three stage evolutionary lines that had all it's stages introduced in the same generation

Exploud would be a good psuedo I think. Toss it +10 in HP and +20 in everything else and it hits 600
>>
>>24970357

Dark makes no sense thematically, that's why it's a meme suggestion. Black =/= dark.

Even Electric/Ice is more appropriate, since it's part lynx, and also space themed and it's cold in space and shit. Also ice coverage would help deal with ground.
>>
>>24970739
"its also space themed"
literally what.
>>
>>24968792
It's pretty good in doubles. If you don't have an answer to swift swim kingdra like thundrus or Charizard Y you're dead meat. I like coupling it with a lightning rod pokemon. It's like not having an answer to shedinja in BH.

> Suggests MegaRayquaza is above god

>>
>>24970357

>>24970160
Archeops can easily be given brave bird or something
It would play well with defeatist, as it will deterr anone who just wants to spam the thing over and over

The trip that didn't read the whole thread
Real tragedy of 4chan
And a Wasteof Potential
>>
>>24969620
Could see that happening
Would put pressure ob the uberghosts Gengar and Aegislash
A mega with a good speed tier which threatens with strong jaw crunch+good attack stat which cant be hit by stab shadow ball
Yet would still be frail to Earthquake from major users such as Garchomp
Anon I think you may be onto something useable to gefreak
Now you need a electric/normal design which doesnt deviate too much from initial design and you are winrar!

>If only gamefreak payed attention to this board....
>>
>>24969559
It doesn't have Brave Bird and to use Acrobatics at full force you must have no item. No it won't move up to Ubers.
>>
>>24972374
But that's wrong.
At least it had as a total BST, Braviary had a similar spread.
With 123 Attack, 80 Speed and Defiant and already access to Brave Bird, a secondary STAB, Superpower, U-Turn and other moves, Braviary is still just... there.

You can say that because it faces competition with Staraptor (Talonflame albeit a Flying-Attacker, is more of a cleaner than a wallbreaker) is less used and that Luxray will be alone on that niche; but 70 Speed even with Scarf is slow.
+Spe Base 70 pass only by 1 point at level 50 base 130, so you're already sacrificing power for speed.
If you go Adamant, it'll be slower than other Wallbreakers, a lot of the base 100 uses a little speed investment to surpass base 70 already.

Luxray is basically Electric-Flareon with Crunch.
>>
Luxray is like the Black Kyurem of common mons. Also, would a Dark-type addition even fit it? Like others have said its name has lux/light in it and it doesn't really seem associated with dickishness or misfortune.

>>24972728
Makes sense
Luxray definitely needs speed.
Most of the unusable mons are either because of a poor speed tier, glass defences, or shite movepool

Can I also say Cradily could get a decent mega?
Cradily was a solid defence/setup in dpp days and kept a small niche in bwbw2 days
Its fell into dissue as its role was replaced by better mons (Namely Ferrothorn in particular in bw)
I could see mega cradily as a strong defensive core-just needs a bit of polish and cradily can return to a usage tier (not OU perhaps but maybe UU)
>>
>>24974349
Also *bump*
>>
>>24974349
Grass/Rock?
Nah...
>>
It's fast, that's about it, really.
>>
>>24968909
I don't get why people hate Defeatist. Archeops has no defenses whatsoever so it doesn't even matter.
>>
>>24974979
It's the prime example why dragon by itself is a shit stab.
>>
>>24972775
With Strong Jaw it wouldn't even need to be Dark type. Like op said Normal would be good because if strong Facade/Returns.
>>
>>24975139
>switches in on resisted move
>attacking stats now halved
With any other ability at least it would be able to threaten something before it dies
>>
>johto starters
>>
>>24974349
It actually got weaker with DPP and was a fucking beast tank in RSE
I'd also like to see Mega-Armaldo
>>
>>24978535
I kno thats why the hoenn fossils need megas
Cradily way more than Armaldo imo
>>
>>24980370
Armaldo was shite
>>
>>24968772
Wild Charge is a bad move, anon. That's what it is and always will be. A bad move.
>>
>>24975203
>not knowing that Sheer Force made Feraligatr one of the most viable starters.
>>
>>24974979
this. should have gotten nasty plot or something.
>>
>>24980731
Yeah, but none of them were particularly good before they got their HAs released. Aside from Gatr, it has done fuck-all to raising their viability and overall, they're still the worst set of starters.

>Meganium
There's really nothing that can be done with this one.

>Typhlosion
Give it something good that will give it an edge over base Charizard. Some special coverage would be nice!

>Gatr
A better speed tier would push it up a bit.
>>
>>24983184
Despite this, quite a lot of the starters are amazing due to HAs
See Contrary Serperior, Sheer Force Feraligatr, Protean Greninja and Speed Boost Blaziken for example
>>
>>24968760
this board complain about the cliche Electric/dark with Strong jaw
But it would help him alot
and like +50 base speed
>>
>>24984428
The electic/normal some anon suggested seems better suited and better thought out than electric/dark
>>
>>24984416
Fuck protean greninja
Cheap ass fuck
