I'd definitely say Megazam is worse than Meta, while it's threatening to offense on the merit of its power and speed alone pursuit trappers are everywhere rn and Alakazam just kinda gets shit on by most of them, whereas Meta can at least stomach a hit from full and KO them back (Bish Weav and TTar all drop to Hammer). As for Lati, I'd say they're both a cut above the megas in A- and if I recall people were discussing Mega Lati rising to A before so it seems appropriate to consider them about equal. As for the already existing A mons: Lop generally outperforms it, Medi doesn't have much over Gross besides its potency as a nuke, I'd definitely consider it better than Sableye (it doesn't do as good a job of blocking rocks as it used to and it invites in fairies not named Azu), and it seems on par with Zard, both are powerful offensive threats with a good bit of defensive utility to boot. They obviously have differences, Zard X just being able to hit harder and outrun more shit via DD, while Gross has the better defensive typing and coverage options. While it might be considered one of the less potent options in A if it does rise, that shouldn't stop Meta from ascending to be with its brothers from the old thread.For all the people on the Mega Meta train: do you think it's the best Mega in A-? I think a major thing to consider here is whether it's better than (Mega) Alakazam or Latias. The other is whether it matches up to the Megas already in A. Meta trends aside, Lopunny is an extremely restricting mon for offense, Medicham is an issue all around, and Sableye is also very restricting. ZardX is kinda under the radar but it's not a mon you ever wanna give free turns, plus it counters Scizor which is pretty big. Is Metagross really on the same level as these others? Or is it just better than some A- mons like Pinsir and Gardevoir?
