Make-a-Mega

We all know that there’s a lot of Pokemon that just plain suck competitively. However, the introduction of mega-evolution as a mechanic allowed many Pokemon that would otherwise be very weak to suddenly become very usable. In the case of some Pokemon (ie. Lucario or Mawile), their mega-evolutions give them such a boost that they jump from lower tiers into Ubers.

So, for the Daily series Make-a-Mega, we’re going to take a Pokemon that is ordinarily quite weak and create a mega-evolution that will render it usable in a higher tier. In the last Make-a-Mega we turned Castform from a really gimmicky and useless Pokemon to a Pokemon that's equally gimmicky but can actually do some damage. Now it's time to again submit ideas for a Pokemon to create a Mega Evolution for. Once we have our chosen Pokemon, we'll develop its type, ability and stats here whilst over in A&D a design to match our changes is created.

Week-by-week breakdown

Week One: Pokemon is determined
Week Two: A&D work begins, type change (if any) is determined.
Week Three: Ability change (if any) is determined.
Week Four: Stat changes are determined. Featured design is selected.

Each week (excluding the artwork) is broken down into three days where ideas are suggested and then a four day poll to determine which idea we apply. The article is then written and published as the next polling process begins.

Guidelines
  1. The chosen Pokemon must be fully-evolved or have no evolutions.
  2. It should not already possess a mega-evolution.
  3. It must be from a tier below OU.

Previous Selections
  1. Roserade
  2. Luxray
  3. Lapras
  4. Weezing
  5. Castform

I'd like to suggest Masquerain!

I think it's kind of a forgotten Pokemon, but it could get a more unique typing (cough bug/water) instead of keeping that boring bug/flying combo. Plus I like it's current design - so I'm sure it could look really good if it had a mega as well. :)

Raichu. With Pikachu always getting more love and Raichu still being better than it, combined with the fact that we need more good Electric types, I feel like it would be a good candidate for a Mega.

I hope this isn't too far-fetched, but how about Farfetch'd?

There was a tie so I flipped a coin. Syndrome will be pleased because Arcanine won. So, are we having any type changes?

I would suggest Fire / Fighting.

Reasoning:
- Stealth Rock neutrality
- STAB on Close Combat
- Quad resists U-turn
- Now resists Knock Off
- Crunch and Wild Charge can cover the new weaknesses

I believe in Jesus Christ my Savior. If you do too, and aren't scared to admit it, then copy and paste this in your signature.

I think I'm more pure Fire camp here but I'd be okay with Fire/Fighting.
