Pokemon X and Y has Mega Kanto Starters!

For an awful long time, Charizard has been a fan favourite of Pokemon fans around the world.  And so when the concept of Mega Evolutions was announced a few months ago, a lot of fans ended up hoping their favourite fiery dragon Pokemon would be getting one like Mewtwo and Lucario did.

And now it’s true!  Charizard, Venusaur and Blastoise have Mega Evolutions!  Behold!

As you can tell, quite a few big changes there.  No type ones (unfortunately), but ability wise… this will be good.  Charizard with Drought, the weather ability that completely wrecks the metagame?  Goodbye Ninetails, Charizard is going straight back up to Overused tier in a flash.

Venusaur with Thick Fat, halving the effects of Fire and Ice attacks?  Well, that’s broken.  It’s basically now got only Flying and Psychic attacks as weaknesses, making it much more usable than ever before.

As for Blastoise… who knows.  Mega Launcher is a new ability.  Hopefully it’s as useful as the new ones given to Charizard and Venusaur with their Mega Evolutions.

    Venusaur isn’t weak to Bug. Poison resists Bug, so Venusaur takes neutral damage.

      Thanks for reminding me. I’ll fix that.

      Either way, less weaknesses.

    Venusaur was already OU thanks to Chlorophyll, so it’d be interesting to see how MegaVenusaur would hold.
    MegaCharizard…yeah, it’s moving up to OU unless people want Sun in UU (which they likely don’t).
    I’m unsure about MegaBlastoise, though. I wonder what moves it has that get boosted…

      Well, if Mega Venusaur’s stats are higher, that could easily let it outdo the faster normal one.

      As for Mega Blastoise… good question, seems like it has a new ability.

      Mega launcher helps pulse moves such as dark pulse and water pulse. Not as cool as thick fat or drought.

    Charizard may be the fan favorite, but I’ve been a Venusaur guy from the beginning, and this is quite an awesome power-up. It also reminds me of schoolyard rumors of “Mewthree” and fourth forms for the starters back when Gen 1 was new.
