You Fool, This Isn’t Even My Final Form

Alternate Title — Mega Evolutions: Likely Soon to be Extinct, but Not Totally Hideous

I’ve had Pokemon on the brain recently, specifically mega evolutions.

I was fully prepared to talk about how ugly some of the mega evolutions are but once I actually looked at a full list of them from XY and Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire, I realized that there are more that look awesome rather than ugly.

Admittedly, I didn’t know what basically any of the megas looked like because I hardly ever used them when I played X. I used Lucario’s a few times but beyond that, mega evolutions weren’t really something I was too interested in using.

Even though no new megas were introduced in Gen 7, I likely wouldn’t have used them then either anyway.

But just because we likely won’t be getting any new megas in Ultra Sun/Ultra Moonor future generations doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate the designs of the ones we already have.

Now I will be honest — absolutely all of these mega evolutions are goofy as frick. But! That doesn’t mean that they aren’t still kind of cool.

Anyway here we go, my top 6 favorite mega evolutions (and one honorable mention):
