Mega Mirrors (Slate 16.5 - Discussion)

Yoshiblaze, would you be okay with making the upcoming slates alternate between the usual and doing this? As far as I'm aware, this has only been done for those featured in the first slate, Abomasnow and Absol, and I'm curious on how the submitters would try to buff the already existing pokemon without changing the taste behind it.
This was originally the plan, but the first buffing slate had extremely low participation (only 2 subs for Abomasnow and 3 more Absol iirc), which was especially concerning for a new Pet Mod at the time. The current plan is now to do all of the buffing slates after all of the normal slates

---


Mawile @ Mawilite Y
Ability: Intimidate
EVs: 248 HP / 8 Atk / 252 Def
Impish Nature
- Stealth Rock
- Pain Split
- Knock Off
- Super Fang
Other Options: Seismic Toss, Iron Head, Taunt, Toxic

This thing looks really interesting. Intimidate in its pre-Mega form + 105 Defense + Fur Coat means that any physical attacker without a super effective STAB move can really only dream of even touching this thing. And with that Steel/Fairy-typing, you might not even have a super effective move. This means that Mega Mawile Y can get up rocks super easily and mess with thing with Super Fang, Knock Off, and Pain Split. It's Special Defense is certainly suspect, however, and it is very passive without a gimmicky Bulky Swords Dance set or something.

Garchomp @ Garchompite Y
Ability: Rough Skin
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Stealth Rock
- Draco Meteor
- Earth Power
- Fire Blast

252 SpA Garchomp Draco Meteor vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Landorus-Therian: 271-319 (84.9 - 100%) -- 6.3% chance to OHKO
252 SpA Garchomp Draco Meteor vs. 4 HP / 0 SpD Tornadus-Therian: 246-289 (82 - 96.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock

This is the definition of an offensive Stealth Rock. A lot of OU's Stealth Rockers and forms of hazard control have to fear this. Landorus gets easily 2HKOed by Draco Meteor, Heatran and Excadrill are vaporized by Earth Power, Z-Move Tornadus gets OHKOed if it switches into Draco with Rocks up, Ferrothorn and Mega Scizor get Fire Blasted, Tapu Koko has to choose between Defogging and dying or getting damage off, and that's just the tip of the iceberg. Very few rockers and Defoggers (only Clefable, Chansey, Rotom-Wash, and Mega Diancie and Mamoswine, though the latter two cannot switch-in safely) willingly want to toy with Mega Garchomp Y, making it effective at getting rocks up on the opponent's side of the field and keeping rocks off your side of the field and punishing your opponent for trying to change that.
Oh, I guess you could use it on a Sun team, but I'd rather use SD+Rockium Garchomp + Mega Charizard Y instead, personally.

Heracross @ Heracronite Y
Ability: Moxie
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Megahorn
- Close Combat
- Meteor Mash / Stone Edge / Earthquake
- Swords Dance

Mega Heracross Y is very simple. You weaken the opponent's team a little, you get in, Mega Evolve, SD up, and clean house. Simple as that. Perfect accuracy Megahorn is very spammable and Close Combat patches up most of its resists. It's coverage depends on what you want to beat: Meteor Mash hits Clefable, Mega Latias Y, and Mega Gengar X, Stone Edge hits the Charizards, Zapdos, and Tornadus-T, and Earthquake hits Toxapex before it can Haze you.

Latias (F) @ Latiasite Y
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpA
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Roost
- Calm Mind
- Thunderbolt
- Ice Beam
Other Options: Defog, Thunder Wave, Roar, Toxic, Draco Meteor

Dragon/Fairy-type with reliable recovery and 195 Special Defense.
Yeah, it doesn't take a genius to figure out how could that is. We're lucky that it has mediocre 80/90 bulk on the physical side and that it has a very meh ability or else it would be blatantly broken. However, I wouldn't be too surprised if this is the first thing to be suspected.

Manectric @ Manectite X
Ability: Lightning Rod
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Thunder Fang
- Crunch
- Ice Fang
- Volt Switch

Strong Jaw-boosted STABs in Thunder Fang and Crunch are of course nice and all, but the thing that really makes Manectric is its Speed tier. Being the same as Manectric Y's, at 135 Manectric speed ties with Alakazam X and both Lopunnies and outspeeds Gyarados Y, Heracross Y, Glalie X, Latios X, and everything below. Nothing in that list really appreciates taking a Thunder Fang or Crunch, making Manectric very important in the speed battle and kind of anti-meta, really.

This Discussion slate went super well, but it's as good as time as any at 1 AM to start the next slate! Of course, you can still discuss during the slate.

Slate 11:

Mega Medicham Y: Ability Limit of 5
Mega Pidgeot X: Ability Limit of 4
Mega Pinsir Y: Ability Limit of 4
Slate 11 - Medicham, Pidgeot, Pinsir
Slate 12 - Sableye, Scizor, Sharpedo
Slate 13 - Blaziken, Sceptile, Swampert
Slate 14 - Slowbro, Steelix, Venusaur
Slate 15 - Groudon, Kyogre, Rayquaza, Necrozma
(Likely) Forum Tournament
Buffing Slate 2 - Ampharos, Audino, Banette


Medicham gets a 5 Ability Limit as, like Mawile, it needed a broken ability with its extremely low stats to do much of anything. However, please be reasonable, last slate with Mawile went really well, so hopefully this will too.

And for one more announcement, introducing Mega Mirrors' first new council member: Failure999!

Doing all three as usual. Thank You for accepting me as part of the Mega Mirrors Council.
Edit: When you realise Lucario and Medicham's pokedex entry are surprising similar.:blobthinking:

Name of Pokemon: Medicham-Mega Y
Name of New Mega Stone [X or Y]: Medichamite Y
New Mega's Type:

New Mega's Ability: Magic Guard
New Mega's Stats: 60 / 150 / 75 / 40 / 75 / 110 (+90 Atk, -20 SpA, +30 Spe)
New Moves (if any): Wild Charge
Flavor (Optional): Unlike many other mega stones, Medichamite Y was man-made instead of naturally created. The scientists originally created this stone with boosting Medicham's psychic powers through boosting its brain. However, the results shocked the world. In addition to improving its psychic powers, the excess energy from Mega Evolution caused its mind to overload with electricity, which flow through its whole body along with psychic energy, which protect it from taking damage from the high voltage in its nervous system (and from the environment as a result). The overload of electricity also gives it an irritating headache, making it harder for it to concentrate psychic energy into attacks. (Hence, why it loses its psychic typing but not the ability to use psychic type attacks.)
Competitive Description: Magic Guard physical attacker! It can exploit Wild Charge and High Jump Kick freely as STAB without recoil thanks to Magic Guard. It also gets coverage such as Ice Punch and Poison Jab to get pass Landorus-Thedian, Latias-Mega-Y, and Fairies. While it lacks set-up and Intimidate still hurts it, it's power should allow it to be a fine addition to OU.


Name of Pokemon: Pidgeot-Mega-X
Name of New Mega Stone [X or Y]: Pidgeotite X
New Mega's Type:

New Mega's Ability: Hustle
New Mega's Stats: 83 / 150 / 80 / 70 / 80 / 126 (+60 Atk, +5 Def, +10 SpD, +25 Spe)
New Moves (if any): Superpower
Flavor (Optional): Mega Evolution has the potential of enhancing a Pokemon's existing abilities, like allowing Charizard to summon the power of the sun to aid its fiery presence in battle. In Pidgeot's case, its mind has changed due to Mega Evolution, becoming much more hostile and merciless. At the same time, its body becomes more aerodynamic while its wing muscles develop, allowing it to blast into the sky with just one flap of its wings. It, oddly enough, has less stamina than its mega counterpart, but makes up for it with wing strength being able to travel about much faster as well. Many Pidgeot-Mega-X actually have small races with Latios and Latias in the sky, even able to win at times.
Competitive Description: Hustle Aerial Ace for that sweet power without accuracy issues, or go all out with Return and Brave Bird to wall break like mad. The accuracy trade-off is a bit unappealing especially with no boosting move, but the high attack and speed certainly can make up for it.


Name of Pokemon: Pinsir-Mega-Y
Name of New Mega Stone [X or Y]: Pinsirite Y
New Mega's Type:

New Mega's Ability: Technician
New Mega's Stats: 65 / 150 / 100 / 85 / 100 / 100 (+25 Atk, +30 SpA, +30 SpD, +15 Spe)
New Moves (if any): Bulldoze,
Flavor (Optional): WIP
Competitive Description: To note, Pinsir has Swords Dance, Bug Bite, and Storm Throw, along with coverage in Bulldoze and priority in Feint, Quick Attack, and the newly added Mach Punch, making Technician an interesting ability to give it. While it still suffered from a crowded speed tier and is easily outsped by a lot, especially Scarfers, it has the power to give its counters payse with its power and access to pirority.

Name of Pokemon: Pidgeot
Name of New Mega Stone [X or Y]: Pidgeotite X
New Mega's Type: Normal/Flying
New Mega's Ability: Reckless
New Mega's Stats: 83 / 140 / 105 / 70 / 70 / 110 (+60 Atk, +30 Def, +10 Spe)
New Moves (if any): Flare Blitz, Double-Edge (bypass compatibility issues)
Flavor (Optional): Mega Pidgeot X is very aggressive, attacking anyone that it doesn't like.
Competitive Description: Pidgeot's movepool makes it a perfect candidate to make use of Reckless ability. Brave Bird and Double-Edge are STABs, while Flare Blitz lets it hit Steel-types hard. Increased physical bulk lets it shrug off priority moves. Its moves wear it down quickly but if it gets a free turn, it can also use Roost to last longer.


Name of Pokemon: Pinsir
Name of New Mega Stone [X or Y]: Pinsirite Y
New Mega's Type: Bug/Ice
New Mega's Ability: Refrigerate
New Mega's Stats: 65 / 75 / 100 / 135 / 100 / 125 (-50 Atk, +80 SpA, +30 SpD, +40 Spe)
New Moves (if any): Boomburst, Bug Buzz
Flavor (Optional): Mega Pinsir Y releases incredibly cold soundwaves from its weird-looking mouth.
Competitive Description: Spam Refrigerate Boomburst to win. Bug Buzz gives it a Bug STAB while Focus Blast and Hidden Power are its only special coverage moves. I gave it min-maxed stats as it is really held back by its awful defensive typing (double weaknesses to Fire and Rock). On the flip side, its typing gives it useful resistances to Ice and Ground. Its STABs + Focus Blast cover a lot offensively. A bit of a one-trick pony but a very good one at what it does.


Name of Pokemon: Medicham
Name of New Mega Stone [X or Y]: Medichamite
New Mega's Type: Psychic/Fighting
New Mega's Ability: Simple
New Mega's Stats: 60 HP / 70 Atk / 115 Def / 70 SpA / 115 SpD/ 80 Spe)
New Moves (if any): (ex: None)
Flavor (Optional): Too much meditation has left it dizzy and simple
Competitive Description: Set up with Simple-boosted Calm Minds and Bulk Ups. It's also surprisingly durable thanks to its great bulk and Recover.

Name of Pokemon: Pinsir
Name of New Mega Stone [X or Y]: Pinsirite Y
New Mega's Type: Bug/Fighting
New Mega's Ability: Tinted Lens
New Mega's Stats: 65 / 75 / 105 / 135 / 95 / 125
New Moves (if any): Nasty Plot, Bug Buzz
Flavor (Optional): After learning how to channel its anger and aggression with some deep meditation, Pinsir unlocked a completely new transformation once it mega evolved. It tapped into its chi and allowed it to see past normal limitations and into the opponents true potential.
Competitive Description: Mega Pinsir Y is a powerful special attacker that has near perfect coverage thanks to its ability Tinted Lens. Nasty Plot grants it the capacity to break past walls. A 125 base speed stat also means it outpaces plenty of common Pokemon.


Name of Pokemon: Medicham-Mega Y
Name of New Mega Stone [X or Y]: Medichamite Y
New Mega's Type: Fighting/Steel
New Mega's Ability: Sheer Force
New Mega's Stats: 60 / 40 / 80 / 130 / 90 / 110 (-20 Atk, +5 Def, +70 SpA, +15 SpD, +30 Spe)
New Moves (if any): Flash Cannon, Nasty Plot
Flavour (Optional): A Medicham decided to focus on strengthening its willpower instead of its Psychic prowess, and eventually gained a will stronger than bonds of Steel. After Mega Evolution, it gained the ability to manipulate metallic objects using sheer will power alone, and thus relaxed on using physical attacks.
Competitive Description: A fast Steel special attack is currently unheard of in the metagame, so Medicham holds a fantastic and unique niche all on its own. Sheer Force allows its STABs and its coverage options to hit very hard.


Name of Pokemon: Pidgeot
Name of New Mega Stone [X or Y]: Pidgeotite X
New Mega's Type: Normal/Flying
New Mega's Ability: Tough Claws
New Mega's Stats: 83 / 140 / 105 / 70 / 70 / 111 (+60 Atk, +30 Def, +10 Spe)
New Moves (if any): Superpower, Bulk Up
Flavor (Optional): After being brought to the Sinnoh region, Pidgeot faced a problem - they could not get the best food in the region. This is because in order to get it, they have to directly compete with Staraptor for food, and Staraptor is stronger and bulkier, while being near evenly matched in terms of speed. This left Pidgeot unable to compete, and they were furious. After a trainer caught one particularly furious Pidgeot and attempted to Mega Evolve it, its pure rage and frustration warped the Mega Evolution energies and allowed it to become Mega Pidgeot X, a ferocious and determined physical brawler.
Competitive Description: Tough Claws boosted Brave Bird and Return off 140 Attack hits very hard, and Mega Pidgeot X carries Superpower to dent Steel type switchins who think they can wall it.

Name of Pokemon: Mega Medicham Y
Name of New Mega Stone: Medichamite Y
New Mega's Type:

New Mega's Ability: Psychic Surge
New Mega's Stats: 60 / 30 (-30) / 75 / 140 (+80) / 75 / 130 (+50) (BST: 510)
New Moves (if any): Nasty Plot, Volt Switch

Flavor (Optional): Mega Medicham Y unleashes its true psychic power, transforming the land around it using its mind. Though its transformation cripples its physical form, Mega Medicham Y can bend its opponents to its will.

Justification: In a sharp contrast to its other forme, Mega Medicham Y is a strong special attacker that can serve as both a wallbreaker and a pivot. This set’s main niche lies in its ability Psychic Surge, bolstering it’s STAB and aiding teammates, while also possessing a wide special movepool including Focus Blast, Shadow Ball, and Energy Ball. It can augment its two main roles by running either Nasty Plot or Volt Switch, though it runs into issues as it can only run four moves.


Name of Pokemon: Mega Pidgeot X
Name of New Mega Stone: Pidgeotite X
New Mega's Type:

New Mega's Ability: Intimidate
New Mega's Stats: 83 / 120 (+40) / 90 (+15) / 75 (+5) / 100 (+30) / 111 (+10) (BST: 579)
New Moves (if any): Close Combat, Rock Slide

Flavor (Optional): Bigger and badder than ever, Mega Pidgeot X is one bird that most Pokémon don’t want to fight. Its size combined with a stunning array of colorful feathers allows it paralyze its prey with fear, before quickly submitting it to a flurry of strikes.

Justification: Mega Pidgeot X is a terrifying bulky attacker, allowing it to play multiple roles on a team. Obviously, it can hit hard with its base 120 Attack and 111 Speed, alongside new access to Close Combat and Rock Slide, but it also is far bulky than its normal forme. This is only magnified by Intimidate and Roost, giving Mega Pidgeot X a longevity most offensive threat do not have.


Name of Pokemon: Mega Pinsir Y
Name of New Mega Stone: Pinsirite Y
New Mega's Type:

New Mega's Ability: Shield Dust
New Mega's Stats: 65 / 125 / 130 (+30) / 70 (+15) / 150 (+80) / 60 (-25) (BST: 600)
New Moves (if any): None

Flavor (Optional): Rather than growing wings, Mega Pinsir Y buries into the earth, becoming a part of the earth itself. Its scales turn into a fine sandy dust that hides it until it is about to strike.

Justification: Although Pinsir is more known as an offensive threat, this forme gives it new defensive utility. Although its HP is lacking, 65/130/150 defenses are fantastic, especially when considering it ignores secondary effects through Shield Dust. Mega Pinsir Y can use Stealth Rock to be a very effective hazard setter, or serve as a tank thanks to strong STABs and coverage.

Name of Pokemon: Mega Pidgeot X
Name of New Mega Stone [X or Y]: Pidgeotite X
New Mega's Type: Normal/Flying
New Mega's Ability: Pointed Plumage (Iron Barbs clone)
New Mega's Stats: 83 / 90 (+10) / 135 (+60) / 70 / 110 (+40) / 91 (-10) = 579 BST
New Moves (if any): Beak Blast, Taunt
Flavor (Optional): When powered up by the Pidgeotite X, Pidgeot's crest hardens and becomes extremely sharp. While this weighs down Pidgeot slightly, these pointed feathers are an extremely effective deterrent. In the wild, these feathers likely serve as a defense against Pokemon who prey on Pidgey eggs like Raticates. On top of this, Pidgeot has another trick up its sleeve, heating its slightly enlarged beak to extreme temperatures to punish anything brave enough to challenge its sharp feathers.
Competitive Description: This thing will punish anything that uses a contact move. Residual damage on top of the possibility of being burned by Beak Blast should make any physical attacker without a super effective move think twice before staying in. On top of this, Pidgeot can force physical attackers to take this risk via Taunt and its good speed for a wall. Mega Pidgeot X also has reliable recovery in Roost, and support options in Defog, Whirlwind, and Tailwind. It can also act as a gimmicky stall breaker like Mega Pidgeot Y, with Refresh or Taunt, Work Up, Roost, and Beak Blast.

As it went so well last, we'll have another 24-hour discussion phase to discuss the previous slate and anything you missed the first time.​
 
It's been past 24 hours, but I'm still replying here precisely because I'm late. I completely forgotten to follow up on this, my bad. Since I still do have a large lists of analysis that I'm still currently working on, I'm currently focused on completing that. Meanwhile, I'll contribute for our new Megas.

Name of Pokemon: Medicham-Mega Y
Name of New Mega Stone [X or Y]: Medichamite Y
New Mega's Type:

New Mega's Ability: Magic Guard
New Mega's Stats: 60 / 150 / 75 / 40 / 75 / 110 (+90 Atk, -20 SpA, +30 Spe)
New Moves (if any): Wild Charge
Competitive Description: Magic Guard physical attacker! It can exploit Wild Charge and High Jump Kick freely as STAB without recoil thanks to Magic Guard. It also gets coverage such as Ice Punch and Poison Jab to get pass Landorus-Thedian, Latias-Mega-Y, and Fairies. While it lacks set-up and Intimidate still hurts it, it's power should allow it to be a fine addition to OU.
As the guy who created this Mega, my thought process on this pokemon, as mentioned was to shine in a special place, stallbreaking. With Recover, Substitute, Power-Up Punch and Magic Guard. This mega can be a nightmare for stall to deal with. Nothing that normally tanks High Jump Kicks like taking Wild Charge as Medicham hides behind his substitute. It can also shine on offense, with Electric Terrain support it can be a huge pain to fight with good speed, power and coverage.

WIP

Since the slate has not changed, I figured I'd be able to write at least a little bit about the newest three Megas. All of them have a definite niche, although they face some competition among other Pokémon and Megas.


Medicham @ Medichamite Y
Jolly Nature
Ability: Telepathy
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
- High Jump Kick
- Wild Charge
- Ice Punch
- Zen Headbutt / Poison Jab / Fake Out

Medicham @ Medichamite
Adamant Nature
Ability: Telepathy
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Def / 4 SpD
- Drain Punch / High Jump Kick
- Thunder Punch
- Substitute
- Power-Up Punch / Recover / Toxic

Probably the most simple of the new Megas, Medicham Y can run a decent all out attacker set with perfect neutral coverage (minus Shedinja) in High Jump Kick, Wild Charge, and Ice Punch and fantastic Speed. Just like its other forme, it can break through Toxapex well, but also matches up well with Flying-types including Tornadus-T, Celesteela, Zapdos, Pelliper, and Landorus-T with Ice Punch. Obviously, Magic Guard, gives this another option as a stallbreaker, especially given the stiff competition for wallbreakers. Definitely a unique and usable Fighting-type, although it is probably not the strongest option.



Pidgeot @ Pidgeotite X
Adamant Nature
Ability: Big Pecks
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 SpD
- Roost
- Beak Blast
- Defog
- Toxic / Return / Confide / Tailwind / Whirlwind

Probably the Mega I think is the strongest out of the three. Mega Pidegeot X jumped out at me as less of a stall breaker, but far more as a defensive or more bulky offensive Pokémon. Thanks to its base 135 Defense, Pointed Plumage, and Beak Blast, Mega Pidgeot X has little to fear from most physical attackers without Stone Edge or Rock Slide, letting invest heavily in its Attack and Special Defense. Because of its bulk, it can be an incredible Defog user, distinguishing itself from Tornados-T due to its far superior bulk and access to more reliable recovery. The last slot can be filler, and can be adjusted along with the EV spreads to change up Mega Pidgeot X's role. This is a really scary Pokémon that I could see on both balance and stall teams alike.


Pinsir @ Pinsirite Y
Adamant Nature
Ability: Hyper Cutter
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 SpD
- Swords Dance
- Stealth Rock
- Earthquake
- X-Scissor / Close Combat

Pinsir @ Pinsirite Y
Impish Nature
Ability: Hyper Cutter
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
- Stealth Rock
- Earthquake / Bulldoze
- Rock Tomb / Stone Edge
- Toxic / Substitute / Rest
My primary goal in this Mega was creating a Stealth Rock setter, that while very strong defensively, also had an offensive presence, in part inspiring by Stealth Rock setters in other tiers such as Primal Groudon or Hippowdown. Both sets listed above use different methods to aid in achieving this goal: the first uses Swords Dance and its bulk to pressure other hazard setters and removers, while the second uses focuses mor on its support move pool. Definitely exploitable, but a strong choice for bulkier teams.
 

Medicham @ Medichamite Y
Ability: Pure Power
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Wild Charge
- High Jump Kick
- Ice Punch / Bulk Up
- Recover / Ice Punch

Honestly, I don't see too much of a reason to use the Medichamite Y over the Medichamite, but that doesn't mean that Mega Medicham Y doesn't have merit. Its 110 Speed is pretty good to have and is one of the main weakenesses of Mega Medicham X. Someone expecting the X Mega and has a speed tier between 101 and 109, like Kartana, may be in for a very rude awakening. Another great thing about Mega Medicham Y is Magic Guard, meaning that hazards won't chip it over time and it can absorb enemy Toxics. The latter makes it a pretty good stallbreaker, especially since it threatens the top phazer in Toxapex with a boosted Wild Charge and at that point can't be burned by Scald. At the end of day, we know that both Medichams are a nightmare for stall teams and, even scarier, for very different reasons.


Pidgeot @ Pidgeotite X
Ability: Big Pecks
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Def / 8 SpD
Impish Nature
- Beak Blast
- Roost
- Taunt / Defog
- U-turn / Taunt

Curse Gimmick (Pidgeot) @ Pidgeotite
Ability: Big Pecks
EVs: 248 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SpD
Careful Nature
- Beak Blast
- Roost
- Curse
- Quick Attack / Return

Mega Pidgeot X is a physical attacker's worst nightmare. Its bulk, residual damage from Pointed Plumage, and burns from Beak Blast mean that common physical attackers like Kartana, Tapu Bulu, Mega Scizor X, Mega Charizard X (without rocks up), Mega Heracross Y, and Mega Alakazam X are stopped in their tracks, especially if they're Choiced. This set opts for maximized physical defense so it can beat the physical attackers it's supposed to beat more easily, especially if they try to set up while you Beak Blast or Taunt them. Mega Pidgeot X is a bit tough to use and a few physical attackers like Mega Mawile X can break through it fairly easily, but in the right hands, this is one huge annoyance for sweepers.


Pinsir @ Pinsirite
Ability: Mold Breaker
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Atk / 8 Def
Adamant Nature
- Earthquake
- Stealth Rock
- X-Scissor / Swords Dance
- Stone Edge

This thing is kinda weird. It has the stats and typing (to an extent) to be a great wall, though with few support options and no reliable recovery, that's not really its best use. Instead, Mega Pinsir Y is best at being a strong bulky Stealth Rocker, like God of Llamas intended. Its STABs in Earthquake and X-Scissor along with coverage in Stone Edge allow it to threaten a lot of the tier's best hazard control: EQ for Mega Aggron Y, Excadrill, Mega Diancie X, Tapu Koko, and Rotom-Wash before mega evolving, X-Scissor for Mega Latias X, and Stone Edge for Zapdos. Swords Dance also allows it to threaten Gliscor and Rotom-Wash after Mega Evolving with Stone Edge. In this regard, it's similar to Garchomp and Mega Garchomp Y, but trading speed for bulk.


It's about that time
Slate 12:

Mega Sableye Y: Ability Limit of 5
Mega Scizor Y: Ability Limit of 3.5
Mega Sharpedo Y: Ability Limit of 4

Due to Sableye's low stats, it gets a 5 limit

Deadline is Friday April 19th
 

Name of Pokemon: Sableye-Mega Y
Name of New Mega Stone [X or Y]: Sablenite Y
New Mega's Type: Dark/Water
New Mega's Ability: Water Bubble
New Mega's Stats: 50 / 115 / 75 / 85 / 75 / 80 (+40 Atk, +20 SpA, +10SpD, +30 Spe)
New Moves (if any): Liquidation
Flavor (Optional): Sableye replaces its jewels with bubbles.
Competitive Description: An offensive behemoth in contrast to classic Mega Sableye's defensive prowess. Its Water STAB, Liquidation, hits hard while its Dark STABs have utility such as Sucker Punch and Knock Off. Water Bubble gives it some defensive utility in form of a double Fire resistance. In spite of those, Mega Sableye is very frail and isn't that fast, so I don't think it will be too overpowered.


Name of Pokemon: Scizor-Mega Y
Name of New Mega Stone [X or Y]: Scizorite Y
New Mega's Type: Bug/Ghost
New Mega's Ability: Cursed Body
New Mega's Stats: 70 / 130 / 130 / 65 / 140 / 65 (+30 Def, +10 SpA, +60 SpD)
New Moves (if any): Shadow Claw
Flavor (Optional): Its mega stone is too much for it, so strong that it temporarily takes away the life out of Scizor.
Competitive Description: A defensive pivot that forces switches thanks to the combination of immense bulk and Cursed Body. Its low Speed helps it bring in a teammate with U-Turn and isn't that bothersome thanks to Roost.


Name of Pokemon: Sharpedo
Name of New Mega Stone [X or Y]: Sharpedonite Y
New Mega's Type: Water/Dragon
New Mega's Ability: Turboblaze
New Mega's Stats: 70 / 120 / 40 / 145 / 75 / 110 (+50 SpA, +35 SpD, +15Spe)
New Moves (if any): Dragon Pulse
Flavor (Optional): Sharpedo gets a lot more turbo.
Competitive Description: Dragon-typing may catch opponents off-guard upon Mega-Evolution. Turboblaze lets it ignore abilities such as Thick Fat, Multiscale, and Magic Bounce (w/Taunt).

Name of Pokemon: Mega Sableye Y
Name of New Mega Stone: Sablenite Y
New Mega's Type:

New Mega's Ability: Illusion
New Mega's Stats: 50 / 145 (+70) / 75 / 20 (-45) / 65 / 125 (+75) (BST: 480)
New Moves (if any): Spectral Thief, U-turn

Flavor (Optional): Wild Sableye become increasingly more vicious, crafty, and evil the further down they live in their caverns, with the deepest ones often only venturing to the surface to steal and corrupt other Mega stones for their own use. In its new form, Mega Sableye Y uses its power to become nearly invisible, matching both its surroundings and stealing the souls of other Pokémon. It and its fellow powered up Sableye are the best thieves ever known.

Justification: While its stats would make it seem like it outclassed by many other Pokémon, Mega Sableye Y has a variety of additional factors that make it one of the best revenge killers in the metagame. Chief among these is Illusion, an ability that allows Mega Sableye Y to play mind games with its opponents alongside moves such as Spectral Thief, Knock Off, Shadow Sneak, Sucker Punch, Will'O'Wisp, and U-turn. Of course, it still retains the same terrible bulk it had prior without a good defensive ability, and is rather weak for an offensive Pokémon. Additionally, Illusion only works if it switches out after Mega Evolving, limiting its effectiveness.


Name of Pokemon: Mega Scizor Y
Name of New Mega Stone: Scizorite Y
New Mega's Type:

New Mega's Ability: Flash Fire
New Mega's Stats: 70 / 160 (+30) / 100 / 55 / 110 (+30) / 105 (+40) (BST: 600)
New Moves (if any): Bulk Up, Flare Blitz


Name of Pokemon: Mega Sharpedo Y
Name of New Mega Stone: Sharpedonite Y
New Mega's Type:

New Mega's Ability: Intimidate
New Mega's Stats: 70 / 80 (-40) / 70 (+30) / 130 (+35) / 108 (+68) / 102 (+7) (BST: 560)
New Moves (if any): Thunderbolt, Volt Switch

Name of Pokemon: Sableye-Mega Y
Name of New Mega Stone [X or Y]: Sablenite Y
New Mega's Type:

New Mega's Ability: Tough Claws
New Mega's Stats: 50 / 135 / 75 / 45 / 65 / 100 (+60 Atk, -20 SpA, +10 SpD, +50 Spe)
New Moves (if any): Meteor Mash, U-turn
Flavor (Optional): Sableye get by with their favourite diet of stones and crystals, and as a result, many of the stones undigested by this Pokemon become part of its body, surfacing and staying on its skin. Through the power given off by the mega stone, the minerals inside its body and hardens around its skin, especially around its hands, causing them to become extremely sharp around its claws. It last gets a massive boost in its body strength and sight, allowing it to hunt for days without rest and even see in the dark, making for great thieves if they end up inside a city, though there they fight against any Weavile they encounter, typically slaying and eating their corpses without a worry thanks to its power. In the wild, they attack freely and without mercy, hunting down and killing Carbink without mercy. (Sun Pokedex entry)
Competitive Description: Bisharp with a better speed, no Swords Dance and Defiant in exchange for Elemental Punches and Tough Claws. Its status movepool is still the annoyance it will always be, with Hone Claws, Will-o-Wisp, Taunt, and so on. That, and U-turn, also allow it to be unique from other Tough Claw Megas, with it able to pull of a support role with pivoting abilities.

Name of Pokemon: Scizor-Mega Y
Name of New Mega Stone [X or Y]: Scizorite Y
New Mega's Type:

New Mega's Ability: Weak Armor
New Mega's Stats: 70 / 120 / 80 / 135 / 80 / 115 (-10 Atk, -20 Def +80 SpA, +50 Spe)
New Moves (if any): Overheat, Nasty Plot
Flavor (Optional): Scizor achieves its physical prowess and tanking abilities thanks to its indestructible steel armor. But beneath its armor lies a powerful mechanical core that keeps it powered and allow it to move around in its heavy armor.
Competitive Description: k.

Name of Pokemon: Mega Sharpedo Y
Name of New Mega Stone [X or Y]: Sharpedonite Y
New Mega's Type: Water/Fire
New Mega's Ability: No Guard
New Mega's Stats: 70 / 110 (-10) / 75 (+35) / 135 (+40) / 65 (+25) / 105 (+10) = 560 BST
New Moves (if any): Fire Blast, Flash Cannon
Flavor (Optional): Y'all ever heard of Clean Slate? Yeah, this is a crossover episode now. It does have slightly less Special Attack for balance, though.
Competitive Description: Get a Speed Boost, then clean with Hydro Pump, Fire Blast, and Blizzard that can never miss. Simple as that.

Subs will end within an hour
 
Sableye: Failure999, MegaFlareon, God of Llamas
Scizor: Failure999, MegaFlareon, God of Llamas
Sharpedo: God of Llamas, Yoshiblaze, MegaFlareon
 
When you wanted to do all three, but couldn't think of anything for a special killer shark that made sense. :psycry:
(Now that I look back, all of these mons are hard to make, I wanted to make a Scizor that had its armor fall apart partially, freeing it and giving it its old speed at the cost of its new bulk, but never completed it cause I'm bad at deadlines and school is a bi+ch)
