Top Ten Worst Pokemon Mega Evolution

The Top Ten

1 Mega Abomasnow

Why gen 4? Abomasnow is dumb. And generation 6 maid it hairier. WOW! So much better. Yeah not really

Honestly Abomasnow always was my least favorite Pokemon Was not pretty much Creative so his Mega Evolution. - cassiabez

7 weaknesses helps it gain an advantage in speed - Doggus

Mega abomasnow gains practically nothing and is a very vulnerable Pokemon.

2 Mega Garchomp

Mega Garchomp is what happens when you take a fantastic Pokemon and make it mediocre at best, ok, allow me to elaborate:First of all, Mega Garchomp is slower than regular Garchomp, when it Mega evolves, its Speed goes from a great 102 to a slightly above average 92, which leaves it more easily revenge killed by Pokemon that regular Garchomp would outspeed such as Kyurem Black, not to mention the plentiful amount of Pokemon with a base Speed stat higher than 95, including regular Garchomp, and in when Garchomp Mega-evolves, its ability goes from the useful Rough Skin to the incredibly situational Sand Force, which is basically a Life Orb that only works for Ground, Rock and Steel type moves, AND it has to be in the sand, so, in order for Mega Garchomp to be of any use, it needs a sand setter like Tyranitar to help it activate its ability, oh, and by the way, regular Garchomp holding a Life Orb is actually slightly stronger than Mega Garchomp, with more speed and a better ability to ...more

This thing was great. Then Nintendo messed it up with a mega evolution. After the complaints they could have changed it. But no, there's still a messed up mega garchomp

I like the design of Mega Garchomp and thought he was pretty awesome when I first saw him but hey! It's not that good for the pseudo-legendary Garchomp! They could have done something more than make him look so ugly and awkward! Not to mention his strangely positioned Tomy figure!

It just looks ugly and way more inferior to regular Garchomp. Also, don't get me started on its Shiny form.

3 Mega Banette

It is like a Rampardos. It doesn't matter how high your attack is without having the speed or bulk to make good use of it and by the way, the fact that you can't use prankster on the turn you mega evolve is just dumb.

Not only it looks like something out of a horror anime, but the name sounds like the term bayonet which is a knife attached to a gun

Mega Banette has such a cool design. Not only is it frightening, it's badass!

It's so bad I forgot that it was a mega

4 Mega Medicham

Medicham is my favorite. Got even better when got mega

Mega Medicham is actually pretty forgettable to me. Personally though I think it's design is very creative and overall a huge improvement on the original Medicham. I just don't get those...what are they? Water drops?

I don't see why mega medicham is a worst mega,

1. mega medicham surly needs to get a mega its stats are alittle low but still good

2. mega medicham is really powerful for battles. I use it in battle and some dude name NJkl88 use a mega garchomp. I use mind read to block the attacks faster. and brake rake dose a lot more damage.


Not a great design, but ok 😺

5 Mega Ampharos

NOO. NOO. NOO. Ampharos is my favourite Pokemon ever! Well second favourite. But favourite that got a mega evolution. Why do people think it's so bad? Really, why? :(

"Look guys! I got hair! I'm automatically the most beautiful Pokemon of ALL TIME! "
"Go away, Ampharos."
"Aww ;(

I for one actually really like Mega Ampharos. It has amazing stats and a good ability. Ampharos is my favorite Pokemon, and now I love it even more with its new Mega Evolution. Plus, I think it looks cute.

One of my favorites the added dragon type when it mega evolves really makes it awesome an it has a good move set

6 Mega Aggron

How does a Mega Evolution's type alone decide that it is worst? His double weakness to Fighting and Ground is now gone, and he is one of the best tanks in OU. His design is also okay...but I prefer regular Aggron.

Its worst because it turns into a steel type

Its good

1 type doesn't even effect this beast!
10 resisted types (don't make me name em all)
takes less from super effective moves

7 Mega Manetic

Ugh! Ugh ugh ugh! Usually I find arguable points that a Pokemon is better than you think but NO! Not with this hideous dumbed down excuse for the amazing electric wolf Manectric! It looks cowardly, clumsy and most of all SLOW! Mega Manectric isn't supposed to look slow especially when it has an AMAZING speed stat! Regular Manectric is great to use with Mega Sceptile by using Discharge, giving you no reason to ever Mega Evolve it! Bad design, useless Mega Evolution, I'm sorry for being such a hater on Manectric but I absolutely love his original design, looking all dignified, vicious and battle-ready! He deserves better than this coward!

They could have made something better than a lighting bolt.

He looks like he has diabetes

Worst mega design ever - Rue

8 Mega Blastoise

It basically looks the same with an extra water gun, people!

You really no nothing about mega evolution. Mega Blastoise has a huge cannon up it's back and the other cannons are on his arms! His stats also add up to 630! - Victini

This is the worst mega, bad design, bad stats, bad everything

What the hell it looks awesome

This thing is ugly and crap

9 Mega Aerodactyl

What why is this not number 1 this design terrible "oh look why don't we add these black spikey things and make it look like a beard to tell the people that he wise" well guess what Nintendo I'm NOT BUYIN IT (haha get it)

What are those horns, they look stupid and make him look really evil and weak in a way

He has a long beard made of stone! Just look at him!

So...the only thing changing on Aerodactyl here is that he gets...spikes. Spikes made out of rock. Not to mention his fingers are replaced with spikes and he gets a derpy rocky beard! Not the worst design I've ever seen but come on! This is Aerodactyl! One of my favorite Fossil Pokemon (I love all the Fossil Pokemon) has to turn into this? No.

10 Mega Houndoom

I LOVE MEGA HOUNDOOM! He looks so beastly! You can just naturally picture him at the side of Hades, howling into the fire and standing on the skulls of the fallen!

This thing is badass.

Learned about this yesterday

This exits I thought that was a myth or a hoax.

The Contenders

11 Mega Gyarados

It now looks like a shrimp

When I first battled this thing when battling against Lysandre, I thought it looked like a shrimp. - Rue

It isn't much different, plus, when it's shiny, it looks like a pissed off lobster.

It looks like a fish

12 Mega Slowbro

He just change he wears the shell what was on it's tail.

Please and I mean it

Looks ugly and not cool dude not. and please don't tell me where to find a slowbronite

I wear the shellder on my tail sometimes, saying hey, yo! I'm mega Slowbro! The best man

13 Mega Glalie

Really, Game Freak? Of all the Pokemon that need a Mega Evolution, Glalie? It doesn't even look that much different, aside the fact that it's now pretty ugly, too.

Mega evolutions are supposed to make the Pokemon cooler. Getting a massive jaw that Glalie can't close just makes it look dumb.

What the hell this thing is amazing

Mega Glalie is actually pretty terrifying. O_o

14 Mega Swampert

Mega Blaziken? He's okay. Mega Sceptile? YEAH! Easily my favorite ORAS starter Mega! Mega Swampert? No! Since Megas Sceptile and Swampert were released at the same time, I had the opportunity to compare them side by side. Let's take a look at them competitively. With Manectric, Mega Sceptile can kick butt! Sure, his Dragon type makes him incredibly frail to Ice, but there aren't that many good Ice types to choose from, with the exception of someone like Kyogre, a Water type with Ice Beam, and a few others. If Manectric uses Discharge, he can deal damage and paralyze his opponents while powering up his partner's Special Attack due to Sceptile's new Lightning Rod ability. Then Sceptile can go to town with Dragon Pulse and maybe Energy Ball or some other strong special attack. Mega Swampert, on the other hand, while good with someone like Politoed due to his Swift Swim ability, is stopped dead in his tracks by Mega Charizard Y or any other Droughter. I play Pokemon Showdown on Doubles OU ...more

I do not like how bulky it is. Mega sceptile is way better!

I cried when I saw this thing

It looks like Swampert took too many steriods...

15 Mega Camerupt

He looks like a crazy person. Look at that grimace! Or is it a smile of some sort? I also am not a fan of all that fur covers his legs. Mega Camerupt looks derpy.

I don't get why people focus on the design, it's the stats that matter. Mega camerupt is one mega at that.

The only reason I like him is because of his design

Has only 20 speed. That's right! 20 speed! That is pretty bad! - Frouze

16 Mega Lopunny

This thing eats Darkrai for breakfast.

Ok this is a nice mega evolution but people make uhh weird fan art

This is one of the best mega
And is super fast

17 Mega Heracross

I think regular heracross is adorable, but this thing looks like a crappy spaceshuttle toy fused with a vent cover

Looks a lot worse than regular Heracross.

Face looks weird

Looks kinda stupid, I agree. I prefer Mega Pinsir any day!

18 Mega Sableye

I actually think Mega Sableye is rather cute. But seriously, this thing is a MONSTER. Magic Bounce allows all entry hazards and status moves to damage the opponent rather than themselves. And with access to great utility options in Calm Mind and Will-o-wisp, it will take a while to take one of these little guys down. - Absolite

All he does is puts a diamond in front of him and gets gold teeth. You want more? Let's see... he gets good defense and horrible speed.

Sableye is so rich that he has very big ruby diamond

No... Design is rather lame, but it is extremely good! It's insane defense and ability to Will-o-Wisp and recover make it a killing machine, murdering your opponent! Very slowly...

19 Mega Audino

I'll never understand the only gen 5 Pokemon that gets a mega is Audino. I mean yeah, it's cute, but eh. I can name a couple gen 5 Pokemon that can benefit from having a mega. - Rue

Mega Audino was 100% unnecessary. Audino is both bad and unpopular, so giving it a mega that is also bad is just dumb.

I actually really like mega audino *crawls into a corner and prepares for hate*

Of all Gen 5 Pokemon, why was Audino the one to get a mega?

20 Mega Blaziken

I agree with the other comment. Overrated. Easy to KO with Primal Groudon. Use regular Blaziken with Primal Groudon and you can sweep anything. Just start with Blaziken and build your speed and attack up with Speed Boost and Swords Dance and then use Baton Pass to switch out to Groudon w/ Red Orb. Boom. Good game. Blazikenite is a waste of an item slot and its design isn't even that good. Blaziken can already raise his wing-hair, right? Not to mention the whole story with Blaziken Mask in the anime! What makes Blaziken so great and what does he have that's SO awesome that Sceptile and Swampert don't?

Best pokemon ever. Beastly. Monster. I HATE THESE RUDE COMMENTS. U guys love other trash that isn't even that good. Stick with the gangster/pro/champion crew and be cool to mega blaziken. Blaziken looked awesome, but mega blaziken looks even better.

Looks like an old man

He's too overrated. It's hidden ability is the EXACT same thing as its mega ability. It's not even that fast- Mega Sceptile could out speed with EQ

21 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.

Thank you so much for not putting Mega Charizard Y on this list. Charizard Y is so much better and it can totally crush Charizard X. X doesn't even look that cool. Y is more nostalgic, still retaining the original typing.

Charizard Y is so much better yet the anime choses to use Charizard X as a marketing tool and give it to a gary stu... wonderful. - Rue

Mega charizard x is the best no one can beat it

He's a tank don't mess with him man why you got to hate #xisbetterthany

22 Mega Absol

Oh hell no, don't insult my baby!

But seriously, Mega Absol sits at the throne for one of the best mega evolutions in UU for a reason. It is pretty fast, with a base 115 speed, outspeeding threats like Garchomp and tying with Whimsicott. And it's rocking a monstrous base 150 Attack stat, and has insane moves to back it up, like Night Slash, Shadow Claw, Play Rough, and Megahorn. It also has a good base 115 Special Attack to support its wide Special Attack coverage options, like Razor Wind, Flamethrower, Ice Beam, Dark Pulse, Shadow Ball, and Thunderbolt.

Overall, Mega Absol is a beast, and if you ever run into it, you better hope that you have coverage. - Absolite

Absol is godly no one insult it please

Mega Absol is awesome

Gains useless ricer wings that belong to a Honda Civic and its horn looks uglier than Snee. - Absol

23 Mega Lucario

I like regular Lucario a lot better designwise. Mega Lucario is pretty overrated as past comments have said. He gets what? Five or six episodes of the anime dedicated to him. In a row. The one thing that made me hate Mega Lucario when I first saw him was his official artwork. They have seemed to fix this by giving him a more dark teal shade of blue and a more colorful expression in the figures, the card, and the anime. But geez! At first he looked so expressionless, drained of color and ugly and I automatically hated Mega Evolution. Man am I glad they fixed Mega Lucario.

Because he is overrated and it just get black stripes and red he is not very good even a normal lucario is better.

Not the worst mega but it's so overrated. I don't even know what's so cool about it.

He has dreads...

24 Mega Latios

Mega Latios is actually pretty good in OU with Dragon Dance, or maybe Calm Mind if you want to go more special. It is true that he is outclassed by Soul Dew Latios, but Soul Dew is banned in OU anyway so...
Designwise, however, I completely agree. When Megas Latias and Latios were unofficially released, I was almost praying they weren't real. I really wasn't a big fan of their designs. For one, the only way to tell the Megas apart is by looking at their eyes; they each retain their original eye colors, with Latios' being red and Latias' being yellow. Their general personalities seem to fade, at least to me. What I mean by this is they kinda have the same personality now, whereas before Latios was the brave, protective older brother of his fun-loving, smiley sister. Mega Latias' official artwork doesn't even picture her smiling; instead they give her a rather serious expression not far off from a regular Latios'. But back to focusing on Mega Latios. I don't like how they put the ...more

Mega latios is worse than the original and is outclassed by souldew.

25 Mega Mawile

It sucks to the core
See it's design like two mawiles of a mawile in front of a mirror
Plus its typing steel and fairy makes it a lil more resistant but I hate it


26 Mega Sceptile

To this day he still has a pinecone shoved up his ass

He's so powerful

Mega Sceptile is hands-down one of my favorite Mega Evolutions of all time! From the moment I saw him I thought he was awesome, right now I think he's awesome. In fact, this Mega alone was enough to make me choose Treecko over Torchic in Pokémon Omega Ruby. Everything from his sly face to his Christmas tree tail is awesome about Mega Sceptile.

I know right! M.sceptile is so cool,just look at it from the razor leaves on the chest to the Christmas tree tail it's just too awesome :D

27 Mega Charizard Y

Mega charizard y looks cool

I love Mega Charizard Y!

If it out speeds a water or rock it can use solar beam and kick ass
Charizard X is overrated but charizard y is hands down better

Why is thism guy on here this guy's drought ability allows you to use solar beam in one turn and charizard has a 2x wekness to water type moves and a 4x weakness to riock type moves so using solar beam in one turn would be is very useful in my opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong

28 Mega Mewtwo X

How dare they mock my evolution - Mewtwo_

Ruined Mewtwo - Absol

Mega Mewtwo x is strong and cool but mega Mewtwo y is a new with a high stats.

*I meant to say Psystrike was a special attack

29 Mega Metagross

I hate this mega evolution. Metagross design looks heavy, strong, robust, powerful. When I imagine it walking, I can feel its overwhelming power in every weighty step it takes. Its mega evolution DESTROYS that feeling, making it look so light and brittle. It's not threatening at all, it's just stupid.

Besides, it didn't need a Mega Evolution at all. It already was one of the most powerful pokemon, why make it even stronger? There are a lot of pokemon who needed and still need a mega evolution long before than Metagross. The worst mega evolution, in my opinion: wrong design, wrong execution, wrong pokemon choice. I've never done it mega evolve and I'll never do, Metagross is awesome just as it is.

Both Mega Metagross and Mega Salamence are some of the worst designed Mega Evolutions of all time. Metagross looks so stupid! They didn't combine the two Metagross well at all! Plus his shiny makes no sense. That shade of blue for the X fits about as well as a Latios in a sea of Latias (not their Megas of course). Looks so stupid. Sorry Metagross. Your potential and coolness just went down the toilet.

It looks so stupid. And, why did they make the cross golden? It had so much potential for a badass Pokémon but it just looks stupid. Like, most of the fan art is way better than the crappy design they used. I was really disappointed. It's stats are good I guess, but it's so ugly I don't even want to use it. It's a disgrace.

30 Mega Latias

While it is arguable that Soul Dew Latias is better than Mega Latias, the Soul Dew was banned to Ubers, giving you more of a reason to use Latias's Mega form in OU. I found that she doesn't disappoint in OU either; she has mighty Special Attack and is quite bulky, not to mention she can set up with Calm Mind and can utilize Roost/Recover nicely. She also has access to Psych Up, making Quiver Dance users like Volcarona goods partners in Doubles. On top of that, Dragon Pulse, Draco Meteor and Psyshock are great attacking moves that get STAB, and compliment Mega Latias's large supply of Special Attack. Overall Mega Latias is a solid Pokémon in OU and one I recommend using. If you're looking for a good Ubers Latias though, just stick to the Soul Dew and save the Mega Stone for another team member.

On the other hand, I can't say I'm a huge fan of Mega Latias's design. I prefer most of the fan art to what we actually got. Now, I'm not saying I hate the design, far from it. I like ...more

31 Mega Pidgeot

All they did was give it "hair" because giving mega evolutions hair is popular

I've totally forgot that this Mega even exists. - cassiabez

Mega Beedrill mega pinsir

While No Guard Hurricane is a force to be reckoned with, there are just simply Pokémon that use the Ability better, like that slew of Fighting Pokémon (Machamp being one of the most popular) that can wreck teams with never-missing Dynamic Punch. In its tier, though, Mega Pidgeot isn't really a Mon to be overlooked. With its speed increase in Gen 6, it can now do better at sweeping with the previously mentioned No Guard Hurricane. While its design is nothing special, as it kinda just got a fancy haircut, I personally don't dislike Mega Pidgeot.

32 Mega Kangaskhan

It's very a good and creative make the Kangaskhan baby older and out of the pouch but it would have been better if Kangaskhan also had changed. - cassiabez

Although it is cool it really sucks that the actual parent doesn't change whatsoever

*game freak* Hmm what should we do for mega kangaskhan? *other guy* OOOH I KNOW! LETS JUST HAVE THE CHILD OUT OF THE POUCH! *clapping* come on, HAVE SOME CREATIVITY!

Is Kangaskhan on here just because of how annoying it is? Because it isn't really a bad Mega, far from it. Designwise, sure, it sucks. The only thing that changed is the baby can fight now. Ah, but that's where Kangaskhan gets good. Its Parental Bond Ability lets it attack not once, but twice a turn, meaning it can set up rather quickly with Power-Up Punch, heal extra with Drain Punch, potentially sweep with Sucker Punch, and Return is another STAB attack that Kangaskhan can use to its advantage. In my opinion, Mega Kangaskhan is the perfect example of what a Mega Evolution is supposed to do, that being encourage players to use Pokémon that they may have overlooked in the past, discover their newfound strength and then use them to sweep everything to bits! Suddenly underdogs like Kangaskhan, Mawile and Medicham have become some of the most fearsome Pokémon in the metagame!

33 Mega Tyranitar

I kinda wish M. Tyranitar had different ability... I mean it is still really good Pokemon... I just wish he got something more than his stats... for example his type...


<cries in corner>

34 Mega Alakazam

It gets a worse ability then magic guard that lets normal alakazam deal more damage than the mega with life orb. I mean, as garchomp, it's not a bad pokemon just worse than the normal one. It's like deevolving when you supposely evolve

Spoons,spoons,spoon. It looks crazy.

35 Mega Beedrill
36 Mega Gengar

Why is my his here? Just, why?

This thing is a beast! Why is it on this list?


37 Mega Salamence

My gosh! What did they do to Salamence? He kicks butt competitively now with Aerialate and Thrash, but look at his design! This guy must have smoked one too many puke sticks (my aunt's nickname for cigarettes)! His eyes seem to gain sort of a sickly yellow color, his arms and legs are practically GONE (I know he can retract them to fly faster, but hey) and his tail is very weak looking and wavy. In his back sprite the tail is actually pretty fun to watch. And on top of that he has a clunky, awkward disc replacing his wings! The fan art looks way cooler than this monstrosity! I'm sure this is what very few people wanted for such an anticipated Mega Evolution!

38 Mega Gardevoir

I feel bad for the male Gardevoir.
Also it's not really fast enough to sweep, but too slow for trick room.

Mega gardevoir is the best fairy type there is (other than Xerneas)

It's dumb.

Mega Gardevoir, when you look at it competitively, is a pain to deal with in OU, the main reason being it has access to Pixilate, which turns all Normal moves into Fairy moves, while increasing their base power. This means Gardevoir now gets STAB, AND the Pixilate boost, on moves like Hyper Voice. Kiss your dragons goodbye!
When you look at it design wise, however, you can see that really nothing changes with Gardevoir, except for the noticeable dress, of course. It just gets two chest-spikes instead of one, a stylish new haircut, and, mentioned above, the dress. Not a lot of change and not a cool-looking Mega. Now Shiny Mega Gardevoir, THAT'S a different story. That Shiny can speak for itself.

39 Mega Sharpedo

I never understood why Sharpedo was only half a shark, maybe to expand on the torpedo idea, which still makes no sense. Mega Sharpedo could have been made a full shark, because come in! We need an actual shark Pokemon (you don't count, Garchomp! ) here! But no. All we get is some golden stripes and a longer nose. And he is STILL only half a shark. When I first saw him Pinocchio came to mind...maybe because of his long nose...

It's speed is bad for its fraulty

40 Mega Pinsir

Mega pinsir just looks evilit eyes are so creepy I like pinsir but mega it's just'''' lame I don't know how that even called a pok9

41 Mega Venusaur

Best grass poison mega... - Doggus

He's absolutely crap looking ivysaur looks way better

Mega Venusaur falls flat on his face when it comes to...well...just about everything. You made Charizard awesome with his two Megas, why couldn't you do the same for Venusaur and Blastoise? And yes, I know Blastoise gets Mega Launcher upon Mega Evolving, which kinda redeems him, but Venusaur? Just no.
While he isn't necessarily weak in any terms competitively, there are better Grass and Poison Pokémon to use.
For Grass:
1. Serperior. His Contrary Ability can let him sweep early-game with Leaf Storm.
2. Mega Sceptile. A better user of the Mega Stone with Lightningrod, amazing speed and special attack, not mention STAB Dragon Pulse. Nifty.
For Poison:
1. Mega Gengar. A fast and powerful sweeper that is a real force to be reckoned with.
2. Pretty much any other bulky Toxic-setter. Venusaur's many weaknesses on his Grass side make him vulnerable to many sweepers, and under some circumstances he could be OHKO'ed by the previously mentioned Mega Sceptile. If you want a ...more

42 Mega Steelix

This is crazy that steelix isn't up at the top. It gets 0 boost to its abysmal speed, the defensive boosts are okay but not enough to jaw drop. Do not get me started on it's abilities... it is like Garchomp-Mega in a sense but COMPLETE TRASH. It has no viability when there are much better wall options. PLUS IT WASTES A MEGA STONE.

Its only good for setup, but who would waste a mega stone to set up?

43 Mega Gallade
44 Mega Diancie

Mega diancie is not on this list becuase is weird bieng the worst

45 Mega Altaria
BAdd New Item
