Yeah, I see your point. Although the former also suggests that Swampert is going to get his attack and defence risen, so unless its something spectacular, I don't think it'd be worth it. Better to just mega evolve someone else instead lol
You bought a new computer? Again? Well if you're saying you're back lots of new stuff happened. Like more than 386 Pokémon in a hack. And Chaos finished his sprite project.
Yeah, I also get that feeling. Probably because of the added bulk, huh? I was quite confused too because the way it looks I thought Swampert would become even slower but it also got Swift Swim as an ability :\
