Top 10 Best Pokemon Mega Evolutions

The Top Ten
1 Mega Charizard X Mega Charizard X is the second Mega Evolution of Charizard, introduced in Pokémon X & Y in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Mega Charizard X is one of the most overrated Pokémon ever. Sure, it looks cool, but it's not really that strong.

If it were to fight Mega Sceptile (with which it is mostly compared), I think Sceptile's speed would help it grasp victory. Without that speed, Sceptile would be in trouble.

All in all, Mega Charizard X is good, but not as good as it seems. Its ability Tough Claws can enhance its damage-dealing Fire and Dragon-type moves such as Flare Blitz and Outrage, but I think it should be tied with Mega Sceptile.

2 Mega Lucario

Definitely a really powerful one. As someone who considers Lucario their second favorite character in Pokémon, I still definitely think this design is pretty cool.

There is a reason it is uber. Mega Blaziken is good. Speed Boost gives it big sweeping potential. Mega Charizard X, on the other hand, is pure fan service and easy to deal with in competitive play.

Mega Lucario has great STAB options in Bullet Punch, Aura Sphere, Close Combat, and Flash Cannon.

Eh, it's a tad overrated (blame those stupid furries), but it has an awesome design that goes well with its high attack and speed. The ability Adaptability is also extremely powerful. With a Swords Dance or two, it can do over 200 damage with Close Combat, making Lucario a killing machine.

3 Mega Rayquaza

Along with Mega Mewtwo X and Y, Mega Rayquaza has the highest base stats of any Pokémon.

A big advantage of having Mega Rayquaza on your team is that it does not require a Mega Stone. This allows the player to use other useful items to support Mega Rayquaza in combat. While it does not require a Mega Stone, there is still an important condition for Mega Evolving Rayquaza: it must know its signature move, Dragon Ascent.

Upon Mega Evolving, it will also learn a new ability called Delta Stream. Delta Stream renders all move types normally super effective against Flying types neutral. In other words, the only types that can cause any super effective damage to Rayquaza are Dragon, Ice, and Fairy.

With its overwhelming attack power and nearly impenetrable defense, Mega Rayquaza is a force that few can hope to match.

4 Mega Blaziken

Any Pokémon that has the ability Speed Boost, 160 base Attack, and a move set consisting of Swords Dance, Flare Blitz, Hi Jump Kick, and Knock Off is broken.

This thing destroys teams and takes down legendary Pokémon with pretty much no effort. He may be extremely OP, but he is still my favorite Mega.

I love Blaziken because of his epic speed and power. With Mega Blaziken's Speed Boost and Swords Dance, it makes it easy to take down legendary Pokémon. Blaziken is one of my all-time favorite Pokémon. I recommend him to anyone who likes to win battles.

5 Mega Blastoise

Blastoise was cool with two water cannons, and now he has two mini-cannons on his hands and a big turret on his back. That beats every other design out there.

Look at the ability: Mega Launcher. Add egg moves into a Squirtle.

It just looks cool. He is just a defensive Pokémon that cannot beat Charizard. However, he is better than Venusaur.

6 Mega Absol

It turns the dark and mysterious Absol into a creature of angelic grace and beauty while still keeping the awe-inspiring yet fear-instilling look that Absol always had.

An amazing, elusive angel canine of disaster. I love how majestic the angelic white fur, graceful wings, crimson eyes, and menacing horn stand out.

Has an amazing design that brings out its inner grace. It also gets Magic Bounce, an ability that can reflect status moves like Stealth Rock.

7 Mega Mewtwo X

Mega Mewtwo X is one of the few Mega Evolved Pokémon that has a base stat total rivaling Mega Rayquaza.

Ever since Dark-type Pokémon were introduced into the games, Psychic Pokémon haven't been as dominant as they were in Gen 1. But with the addition of the Fighting type, this ultra-powerful form of Mewtwo soon became one of the most formidable Mega Pokémon of all time.

Sure, it is now weak against Flying, but Mewtwo has a huge pool of moves it can learn. Since it can learn powerful Electric moves like Thunder, Flying as a weakness won't be a problem. Another popular move used to counter Flying types that Mewtwo can learn is Blizzard.

8 Mega Mewtwo Y

On the other hand, Mega Mewtwo Y is just as, if not more, powerful. Except for its defense stats, which drop from 90 to 70, Mega Mewtwo Y's attack, defense, and speed increase, along with a major boost to its special attack.

Both of Mewtwo's Mega Evolutions are so broken that it's hard to decide which one to use. Either way, there is little opponents can do to stop either one once they unleash their Psystrike move.

This thing is literally through the roof compared to regular Mewtwo. Outside of physical Defense and HP, it gets a big improvement in every other stat, making its Special Attack unmatched by any Pokémon, including Deoxys and Mega Rayquaza.

It's also extremely fast, with a 140 base Speed stat. Combine this with Mewtwo's endless move possibilities, and you've got an almost invincible Pokémon in your hands.

9 Mega Gardevoir

Looks like a pushy dressed woman, but it can surpass the strength of Mega Gallade. Plus, with the great moves, I'm pretty sure it can defeat anyone.

Gardevoir is one of my favorite Pokémon. It has an amazing special attack when it Mega Evolves and a great move set, including Shadow Ball for those ghost types.

It should be higher, though, in my opinion.

Beat the Champion with just this awesome Pokemon!

10 Mega Garchomp

Garchomp is known as the strongest pseudo-legendary because of its wide pool of learnable moves, extremely high speed, and special attack in its Mega Evolution form.

Yes, we all know that it's vulnerable to Ice-type Pokémon, but with a move like Fire Fang or Iron Head, this is no problem. Iron Head can also counter Garchomp's weakness to Fairy, while its powerful Dragon-type moves like Dragon Claw or Outrage can take care of its weakness to Dragon.

Kalos League Champion has a Mega Garchomp and wrecks Ash and the Elite Four.

The Contenders
11 Mega Aggron

His Defense stat is the same as Shuckle's. Shuckle is known for having the highest defenses in the game. And he has decent Special Defense and good Attack.

Furthermore, he's no longer a Rock-type, so he can shrug off Fighting and Ground moves despite being weak to them.

12 Mega Sceptile

Mega Sceptile is one of the most underrated Pokémon ever. People compare Mega Charizard X with it a lot, and the popular choice is to choose Mega Charizard X. Well, I disagree.

In a real battle, Mega Sceptile can easily defeat Mega Charizard X due to its high speed and additional Dragon type. It will most likely move first, which is a HUGE advantage in battle. With powerful Dragon-type moves like Dragon Claw or Dragon Pulse along with the STAB increase, it can easily one-hit KO Mega Charizard X.

As a Grass type, Mega Sceptile can counter many powerful tanks such as Ground and Rock-type Pokémon. Also, let's acknowledge that this is one of the coolest dragons of all time.

13 Mega Gallade

Gallade is my favorite Pokémon, and giving it a Mega was a great decision. The design is awesome, the stats are good, especially with that insane Special Defense and Attack, and its movepool is pretty good.

This Pokemon is completely OP. His max attack can reach 478, and his speed is boosted, making him a fast powerhouse. He can learn a ton of moves and even has good special defense.

His STAB boosts his power even further, making some powerful hits. Come on, his design is epic too, with a cool cape and awesome red swords. Let's vote Gallade!

14 Mega Salamence

Mega Salamence is a legit bringer of chaos. It uses strong physical moves such as Dragon Rush and Outrage, and with STAB increase, this monster of hell should be able to rival Mega Garchomp and surpass Dragonite. However, because of its 4x weakness to rock, I guess Garchomp would be statistically better.

Is this a joke?! No. 16 on the list?! Mega Salamence is a BEAST. Aerilate and Return/Double-Edge hit for massive damage, though the latter has recoil damage. Alongside Dragon Dance, Earthquake, and more uncommonly, Dragon Claw, it becomes an epitome of power.

It is certainly a force to be reckoned with.

15 Mega Alakazam

A much better sweeper than any Mega Charizard could hope to be. And the design is just a perfect natural progression. Plus, with five spoons, he makes even the toughest of Vanillites shiver in fear.

No other Mega looks like such a natural progression. Plus, it's become a sweeper nobody wants to fight. And just look at all those spoons! Vanilluxe beware.

Dude, Barton passing Calm Mind and Speed Boost, though... And the elemental attacks too, man. Wow, really solid rain sweeper. I mean, Thunder on an Alakazam? Wow.

16 Mega Metagross

Mega Metagross is used by the Champion of Hoenn, Steven. It has a whole lot of resistance but four weaknesses. Extremely awesome physical attacker and defender.

Its extensive pool of moves can easily counter its weaknesses, such as fire, which can be countered by Earthquake.

This is stupid! Why is my favorite Pokemon and one of the strongest Megas so low?

Should be way higher up. Mega Metagross is better than Blastoise.

17 Mega Gengar

I use a level 100 Mega Gengar in every game, and he can literally sweep anything. He can use Psychic and take down Mega Lucario. Psychic weakness? STAB Shadow Ball. Dark weakness? Focus Blast.

Mega Gengar has 110 speed and 130 special attack. It comes out, it hits first, and your Pokémon is down. It can beat the powerful Dragon types because it can learn Dazzling Gleam, Moonblast, and other Fairy-type moves.

All in all, Mega Gengar is the best Mega of all time to me.

Build it on speed and you'll outrun almost anything. Give it Hypnosis, Dream Eater, Rest, and Brick Break, and you can beat anything.

18 Mega Tyranitar

Mega Tyranitar is one of the greatest physical attackers ever. Despite its seven weaknesses, they can mostly be countered. I guess this is one of the reasons why pseudo-legendaries are so awesome.

Not just that, Tyranitar also looks pretty sick, and it somewhat resembles Godzilla as well. However, this does not mean that Tyranitar is huge and lives in the sea.

Amazing in all stats. His ability even changes the weather into a sandstorm, adding even more to defense. OP!

My thumb hurts from scrolling down too much. It's so strong!

19 Mega Scizor

Okay, let's give Mega Scizor the ability Technician. This will double the power of moves with a base power of 65 or below.

Now we have Bullet Punch, a Steel-type priority move which Scizor gets STAB from, and Technician will double it. With Technician and STAB in play, Bullet Punch has a base power of 120! That's like Brave Bird or Flare Blitz without the recoil and it always goes first.

Give him full Attack EVs and his attack stat reaches 394 at the absolute highest. Give him Swords Dance and his attack stat will double to a little over 700! For the rest of the EVs, give him a spread of special defense and HP (however you want), and in most cases, he can survive a Flamethrower.

Let's go back to Bullet Punch and Swords Dance. We now have an attack stat of 788 at the very most (with an attack-boosting nature) and the power of a 120 base Bullet Punch. With this, I have hit Ground, Fire, and Steel-types for around 25% of their health, sometimes more, even though they are resistant.

Overall, AMAZING Mega Evolution. I don't know why it isn't on the list already.

20 Mega Swampert

The most ripped Mega Evolved Pokémon I have ever seen. With its Water-Ground type, its only vulnerability is against Grass. However, a lot of other moves are capable of dealing enough damage plus STAB to knock this big boss out.

Despite this, it is still considered the best starter of all time. Its physical Water-type moves, such as Waterfall, with its Swift Swim ability and STAB during the rain, can deal some real damage.

Best Mega Evolution. It's ripped as hell! Regular Swampert should have been designed like this, but instead, it was designed as some skinny thing.

21 Mega Venusaur

It's the only Mega Evolution that is more defense-based. Its ability means it is only weak to two types, which is unheard of for a Grass Pokemon.

His ability makes it lose two weaknesses, so I'll have a good time wrecking Fire types.

Who cares if the only aesthetic change is a pretty flower? Mega Venusaur's stats are amazing. He is really OP.

22 Mega Charizard Y

Unlike its X counterpart, Mega Charizard Y's attack boost is not as strong, and its defense goes down. Thankfully, it makes up for this with a major boost to its special attack and defense stats.

Plus, it learns the Drought Ability, which allows it to instantly use Solarbeam to take care of pesky water types.

This thing is a beast. It can counter Rock and Water types now, and it has sky-high Special Attack.

Powerful. Solar Beam, which he can use every turn thanks to Drought, helps him with Water and Rock types. He can use Roost to instantly gain half of his HP back. Flamethrower is even more amazing. The list goes on. You can also create synergies with this Pokemon's ability with other team members' abilities like Chlorophyll, or moves like Synthesis.

23 Mega Pidgeot

Regular Pidgeot is bad even by early-game bird standards, but its Mega is actually quite decent.

This guy, I'm judging him from the style. Why is he in 22nd place? He should be in 12th place instead.

24 Mega Gyarados

In Pokémon Showdown, I defeated a whole team with just a Mega Gyarados. By the way, Pokémon Showdown is a website where you create your dream team and fight online players with it.

In the anime, Lysandre's Mega Gyarados defeated four of Ash's Kalos team members (with very little help from Pyroar). He was also able to deal some damage to Ash-Greninja and Alain's Mega Charizard X simultaneously.

Even though Gyarados is a physical sweeper, it still used special moves (Hyper Beam, Incinerate, etc.) and didn't even have any Water or Dark moves. With the ability Mold Breaker, you don't have to worry about Levitate (so you can hit Lunatone with Earthquake), Sturdy (OHKO a Golem with Waterfall), and Multiscale (OHKO a hidden ability Dragonite or Lugia with Ice Fang). Also, Dragon Dance will make it more deadly! Mega Gyarados is the best!

25 Mega Pinsir

Guys, stop using Talonflame. Use Mega Pinsir because he is the real deal. Aerilate is amazing, and so is his B-A design. Return and Earthquake wreck anything that is not an armored bird, a stupid washing machine, or Aegislash. Quick Attack maims faster mons, and Swords Dance boosts this guy's power to unimaginable levels. Simply put, this guy WRECKS!

Shout out to Haydunn for making Pinsir cool before 6th gen.

Yes, Pinsir is a beast. First of all, he has good stats, and he looks cool. Yay!
