VGC Mega Blatoise Analysis

Image
Hi and welcome to a new little series on the blog. I will be covering Mega Evolutions and Pokemon that I have used and think are viable in this format. Today, I'll be talking about Mega Blastoise. Ever since Blastoise got a Mega Evolution, its viability in VGC has gone up a lot. Upon mega evolving, it gains a massive boost to its Sp. Attack, which brings up to base 135. That and the Mega Launcher ability, which powers up all aura and pulse moves, and you have a threat. It also gets some really good moves that work with its ability, including Water Pulse, Aura Sphere, Dragon Pulse, Dark Pulse, and even Heal Pulse. It's also very bulky. With 79 HP, 120 Defense, and 115 Sp. Defense, it'll be taking multiple hits with the right investment.

Notable Moves to run on Mega Blastoise
1.Water Pulse
2.Hydro Pump
3.Flash Cannon
4.Ice Beam
5.Scald
6.Protect
7.Dark Pulse
8.Aura Sphere
9.Dragon Pulse
10.Fake Out
11.Water Spout
12.Icy Wind
As you can see, Mega Blastoise has multiple moves it can effect…
