My Mega Gengar by Seyanni My Mega Gengar by Seyanni
Looks like a Gengar, but with Mega scary poisonous smog surrounding his body.

What I think about Mega Evolutions :

At first I tought that Mega evolution was a risked move that could kill the franchise, but after reading more informations about it I concluded that it was not a bad concept after all, but I hope that the mechanics will be well implemented and that there is a deep and convincing story behind this whole new discovery.

However, I still think the name that was given to this process is dumb. Why naming it "Mega evolutions" while it is not a proper evolution but just a temporary form with boosted Stats/Type/Ability. If this is considered evolution then Deoxys forms could also be considered "Mega evolutions" somehow too. The process is different from Evolutions and Form Variations we've got so far, they should had came up with a more specific term that describes the DNA temporary upgrade. The "Awakening" used in the Mewtwo's movie was more acceptable, but it does not refer directly to genetics.

I tought maybe calling the process "Mutation" and then adding the prefix "DNA" to Pokémon's name, exemple : DNA Gengar. Or "DNA Extensions" and adding the prefix "EX", exemple : EX Gengar. Or calling it "Promotions" and adding the prefix "Pro", exemple : PRO Gengar.

I'm not sure about those ideas, but at least remplacing "Mega Evolution" by a less confusing term. And that way we end up having three transformation classification with decent terms :
- Evolutions : Permanent transformation.
- Variations : Non-permanent transformation. Can switch between forms.
- Mutations (Mega Evolutions confuse me a lot) : Battle-only transformation with Stats/Type/Ability improvement.

When I first got to know about Mega Evolutions, I thought they were too similar to Formes, and wanted them to be one type of temporary transformation. I understand that some Pokemon (such as Deerling and Castform) should not have their forms considered to be Mega Evolutions becuase it changes the Pokemon's appearance based on weather. However, in-battle Formes such as Meloetta's Piroutette Forme make me feel like it should have been Meloetta's Mega Evolution instead. Either I want certain in-battle Formes to be rebooted as Mega Evolutions or maybe even call Mega Evolutions as Formes altogether.

i love this design, and i'm "UBER" excited for the new mutations, but the fact that mewtwo, mawile, absol [not including lucario cause its design is...what's another word for overdone?] pokemon that don't have a complete evolution trale, get them and have them be only temporary. MEGAABSOL IS SO BEAUTIFUL AND ITS NOT EVEN AN EVOLUTION:iconcryforeverplz:

they should totally do Metagross next :iconhypeplz:

That's the problem, they threw out Mega evolutions to Pokémon who don't need it or to Pokémon who could still have a normal evolution.

I wouldn't say don't need it, i think it would be a good idea to make the mega evolution exclusive to pokemon that evolved with EVOstones,giving a much needed buff to some gen 1 Pokemon and some eeveevultions *cough*flareon*cough* also the idea of megaexeggutor makes me curious?[i mean its just so derpy lookin]. but im assuming that a pokemon given a megaEVO would be getting a EVO in the next gen:iconsadnessplz:
[AND IIIIIIIIIIII "HOLY SH!#" WILL ALWAYS LOVE YO-"I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU WOULD DO THIS TO ME GODDAMMIT WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO ME-HE-HEEEE!":iconruncryplz:]

I am also hoping we will get cross gen evolutions too !

Cross gen EVO's? don't they already do that? or are you referring to the TOTALLY B.S. of must of the pokemon of gen5 looking like the evolution's of previous pokemon. [i honestly thought tauros was getting an upgrade ;~; ]

I like that you throw in some settle hints towards the theory that Gengar is a dead Chelfable.

I really like that theory, Gengar should have been the counterpart of Clefable from day one.

Exactly. On another note & out of curiosity, what do you think of Mega Kangaskhan?

Mega Kangaskhan is one of the megas I like the most. The baby leaving his mother's pouch and performing an additional attack was an unexpected twist and I love it ! And I like the fact that the mother kept her old design, that way we will not be distracted and all the attention goes to the little cutie with his lovely eyes ! :D
