Don't post subs until new slate is opened.Sylveon-Mega
Ability: Ribbony Hug
When this Pokémon is hit by a contact move, the attacker is drowned under ribbons and can’t move anymore, but it’s happy cause hugs are great! It’s speed is lowered by 2 stages, but it’s HP is restored by 12.5%
Flavor: Uh, ribbons are an important part of Sylveon, so why no more ribbons? Let it be fully covered by ribbons!
i dunno what to draw for this, just imagine it with more spikes or smth lol
Mega Stone: Escavalite
New Ability: Analytic
Stats: 70 HP / 155 Atk (+20) / 125 Def (+20) / 80 SpA (+20) / 125 SpD (+20) / 40 Spe (+20) / 595 BST
New Moves: Leech Life
Description: I'm admittedly phoning this one in as you can tell. It's a tank with Analytic, not much more to it than that. Fantastic Attack, bulk and coverage should make this a solid bulky breaker that can pose a threat to faster mons while heavily punishing switches for slower mons thanks to Analytic. Leech Life works rlly well on this type of build and it offers a consistent Bug STAB compared to Megahorn.
Once again, it's Technician time.
Stats:76 HP, 157 Atk, 130 Def, 90 SpA, 90 SpD, 97 Spe
- base form usually has to contend with Dragon moves of moderate power but Technician allows it to really reap the benefits of those moves: Scale Shot, Dual Chop, Breaking Swipe (spread move for VGC)
- other moves it can take advantage of but they are mostly niche and more of use in VGC than in Singles: Bulldoze, Snarl, Low Kick
Atk: 140 (+15)
Def: 105 (+45)
SpA: 100 (+5)
SpD: 85 (+25)
Spe: 115 (+10)
New Moves: Flip Turn, Scald, Whirlpool
Concept: Wake up babe, new Weavile check just dropped When looking at Mienshao, we realized that making it a Fighting/Water type could be interesting, not only competitively, since it allows Mienshao to check foes such as Weavile in Kalos Dex and Greninja in NatDex, but also because it works as an "extension" of its design wearing water sleeves, and well, being a stoat which happens to be related to otters(Also completely unrelated but stoats are mustelids and thus related to badgers as well) helps too.
Competitive Design: At first glance, Mega Mienshao might look like just a pivot or an SD sweeper able to exploit Weavile, but it goes far beyond than that.
Offensively, Mienshao is a fast, but also suitably bulky rocks resistant pivot able to chip as well as cripple opposing checks and then exercise pressure through its 140 base Atk stab CC(or High Jump Kick if you're feeling unafraid). Mienshao can also work as an excellent setup sweeper with Swords Dance, able to break through teams but also able to switch back to get back up to a good range and try to sweep again later if needed.
Defensively Mienshao isn't a slouch either, it uses its ability to the fullest along its type and bulk to check mons such as Weavile, Tyranitar, Volcanion, and many others while providing utility through moves like Scald, Toxic, And Knock Off. Its bulk is specifically designed to be able to check Weavile. And its speed tier is in the sweet range where any investment goes a long way, so you can go fully bulky, mixed, or even fast in a vein similar to Torn.
Something great about this Mienshao is its devotion to Mienshao's base form, and its preevolution Mienfoo. Allowing access to all the sets you could run on either Pokemon viably, and boosting it to a power level that is suitable for a pretty new Mega Form.
Additions: In that we're adding a new type we wanted to give it some new tools that synergize with its old kit, Mienshao lacks a Water STAB to use with its new type, so we chose Scald and Flip turn, we want it to emphasize the pivot set and we think that its much more interesting if Mienshao still struggles to hit Gliscor, and Hippowdon. And is either forced to pivot in the case of Gliscor, or could instead use its newly improved Special Attack to run Scald and threaten to burn Hippowdon. We also have whirlpool in there as it can actually be a slightly more viable version of Taunt Whirlpool Urshifu.
