I think the typing should be Flying/Dragon :D

Not that big of an improvement from regular Archeops, to be honest.
jason1067 Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2015
think about if regular archeops had unburden, and with acrobatics, ubers just found its newest member

Wait so archeops' mega evolution, de-volves it back into a complete land creature? o.0 or does he still flap his wings like his original form 
Hewdraw Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2015
The ability should be Early Bird.

That doesn't look like a Mega, it just looks normal.
Walldryx Featured By Owner May 17, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
A Méga Archeops will be awesome!!! :D I love this Pokémon (except the ability) :B
TPKElite Featured By Owner Edited May 12, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
Talon kick is OP. A crit gives like 50%more damage done already, and now if this move does 100 base power, then a crit would give it 150 power, then talon kick makes that do 300 damage. yeah i said that.

My favorite Pokémon of all time is now completely flawless. You, sir, have earned my undying respect.
IrishKlinklang Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2014
It's mega would be great even if it had keen eye or something, as not to make it too broken. Anything but defeatist.
RazorTyphoon Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2016  New Deviant Hobbyist Writer
Yes, keen eye respect! Keen eye is good, it helps against pokemon who use moves like double team, since with keen eye, you ignore evasion stat increases
blairc123 Featured By Owner Edited Sep 7, 2014
It's ability should've been Rock Head. Then it could use Head Smash without any damage.

EDIT: After thinking about it that might be a bit broken.
MrCareca Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2014
very good one ^^

Mega Archeops ability: Optimist, When at 1/2 or less of its max HP, its Attack and Sp Atk are doubled...

Hidood5th Featured By Owner May 9, 2015
Victorist: When Health goes below 50%, win the game with priority Acrobatics.
wholesomewriter32 Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2014  Student General Artist
I do remember Archeops having bigger wings... :/ 

I don't know if I'm okay with this mega-evo, but it's an okay concept.
arachshiradi Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
(instead of rock flying maybe flying dragon?)
Voltzblast Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2014  Student Artist
Fossil pokemon have to be rock, also flying/dragon is overused. So, sod off.
Anthro-animals-rule Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2014
When I saw Archeops for the first time in my life, I just loved it! Dinosaur pokemon are (obviously) a huge win. The dinosaurs are making a comeback everyone! :D
PseudonoobDA Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2014  Student Digital Artist
So Archeops devolved back to its primal saurian origins. And looks good doing it!

I actually wish Mega Archeops  exist, so I'd wouldn't have to deal with Archeops' awful ability Defeatist.
jazewel Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2014  Student General Artist
If Mega archeops exsisted, I would buy a 3ds and pokemon x/y game just to get it! awesome design.

Honestly I think a mega Carrsocora:THe turtle fossil pokemon in Black and White  Would look better.  (Sorry, I can spell A LOT of pokemon names)
kame43 Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2014
Carrocosta is how it's spelt I think.
Celon-549 Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2014
And I thought that Extreme Speed Pixilate Fairy-type Rapidash was bad? It'd take an even greater plot than Hitler's assassination to kill this thing!

Archeops @ Archeopsite
Ability: Defeatist => Guts
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Naive Nature
- Stone Edge
- Talon Kick
- Earthquake
- Heat Wave

This set has everything it needs to rip apart entire teams. Stone Edge and Earthquake together form the infamous EdgeQuake combo, which is only resisted by Chesnaught, Virizion, Breloom, and Torterra, who are all taken out by Talon Kick. Talon Kick serves as a nice replacement for Acrobatics, seeing as the attack would be obsolete on a Mega Evolved Pokemon. Heat Wave takes care of Archeops' two key threats, Ferrothorn and Forretress, and 2HKOs both of them. There are no Pokemon willing to switch in Mega Archeops' powerful attacks, so the best thing to do is to let something die, and then send in either a user of Bullet Punch, Ice Shard, or Aqua Jet, or a fast enough Choice Scarf user to try and take it down.
Rickomarr123 Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2014
It can use Heat Wave?
Celon-549 Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2014
Indeed it can. Most bird Pokemon like Archeops and Staraptor can learn Heat Wave.
Rickomarr123 Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2014
Oh, from a Move Tutor okay. :D
Triforceofpie Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
Overkill, but we need to show who the strongest fossil pokemon is!
DrCoeloCephalo Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I love Archeops and all, but this is a little over-the-top. It's too strong and fast. The Mege-Evolutions we've seen so far hardly go over 610 in total stats. Even Mega Gengar couldn't face this thing. Mega Lucario maybe because of priority Bullet Punch. Still a better choice than having to put up with Defeatist. You can switch in on Will-O-Wisp and get a Defense boost.
Kyuzeth Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2014
First of all, all Mega Evolutions have a 100-point increase in BST, that's pretty much a rule. Secondly, it's FAR from being as broken as, say, Mega Blaziken, as Scarfers can outpace it and, if statused, still has its HP worn down over time. Third off, Choice Scarf users are an incredible threat and even with the defenses it has, Mega Archeops is still really frail.
DrCoeloCephalo Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I see. Good logic. You really know your stuff.
Kyuzeth Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2014
I've been into competitive for about 2 years and have been researching some of the game's absolute powerhouses, so yeah.
DrCoeloCephalo Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I've only recently been able to build a team around my Archeops and Wobbuffet, so I'm still a little inexperienced... I've been competitive battling for maybe 6 months.
Kyuzeth Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2014
It's taken me about a year to get into it, since I was 14 when I started in competitive and begun at 12/13.
DrCoeloCephalo Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Archeops is pretty usable just the way it is, am I right? For me, using one as the late-game sweeper renders Defeatist null and void since I don't have to worrry about switching into Stealth Rock more than once and anything with priority attacks or resistance to Archeops' STAB moves is usually taken care of by that time.
Kyuzeth Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2014
I'll give you that, but Archeops HEAVILY relies on support, to the point where other, less dependant Flying-types become better choices.

Archeops actually deserves a mega, I mean, with mega Aerodactyl being an obvious choice for a pokemon with it's high speed and attack power, Archeops is losing it's lovers fast, but I.. (Whitney Houston begins playing) WILL ALWAYS LOVE IT!
TCovenantUnbeliever Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2014
Awesome, just one issue: Guts. Bad choice. Guts is kinda meh when you can't hold a toxic orb, so yeah not a great ability, especially for such a well designed mega.
Kyuzeth Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2014
Well, what else suits this thing? It basically makes every status spreader run for its life and it's pretty much the opposite of Defeatist; Archeops gains the courage to press onward, no matter the circumstance.
Dragonith Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Eh, I'll think about it.
ToonTwins Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Very cool! :D
