Glalie > Steelix > Camerupt > Altaria > Slowbro > Lopunny > Sharpedo

What they did to Sharpedo should classify as a crime.

After they made Mega Slowbro I was hoping that they would make Mega Slowking to match. I even made a mockup for it.

Mega Bro is too dumb. Mega Steelix would actually be good, but they went to far with the jaw. Mega Sharpedo is awful, and Mega Camerupt looks too much like some fanart. Mega Altaria is actually funny, Mega Glalie is a bit too much and Mega Lopunny actually...kinda works imo.

A coin flip between Altaria and Camerupt for me. Altaria has good fluff and Camerupt basically turns into a volcanic parade float.

Despise Mega Sharpedo but Mega Lopunny is gross. They gave her torn stockings. Literally acknowledging the deviants in the fanbase lol

ok but really how did that sharpedo make it into the game

its probably just because its not very posable, but of all the mega evolutions it looks the most like someone just drew a bunch of extra shit on top of the original artwork. Its awful

Slowbro looks like he's trapped in his own shell. Not sure if that's the concept or if this art is just awkward.

Glalie is great for the lore alone. Its body fills up with so much power that it overflows and breaks its own jaw.

Every time you mega evolve your Glalie, you are causing it to rebreak its jaw over and over again.

and they had the option to just make him a full length shark which would have been sweet

voted Steelix for being the least junk

Mega Altaria reminds me of some sort of colonial landowner. But the floof is too strong not to vote for it.

It's tempting to linger in this moment, while every possibility still exists. But unless collapsed by an observer, they will never be more than possibilities.

Altaria for me, I'm not a big fan of this group but aside from Steelix and Sharpedo they're all at least trying something interesting. I'm not even a fan of regular Sharpedo but the mega is a huge waste of potential.

Pretty sure it's intentional, poor Slowbro. It looks like it's halfway to a Parasect situation with the shell taking over!

I would love for Megas to return. Again, I like the mechanic a lot. I just don't like a lot of the designs, since they're either overdone or... just bizarre.

Here, I like Slowbro, Steelix, Camerupt, Lopunny, and Altaria enough. Hard to pick just one between them. Sharpedo is insufficient - could've kept a similar vibe but made him grow in length instead of keeping him compact. And WTF is Mega Glalie?

I like Dynamax a lot more because it can make even crappy Pokemon atleast semi-useful.

Dyna is better than Z-moves, but Megas were and are still the best gimmick.
