Hello I saw that you have lots of mega pokemon drawings and I would like it if you put them in my new group. it's ment to collect fake and real mega pokemon. If you want to join you can but I'm not forcing you to do either. Nice megas thought!
I wish Flygon had a mega evolution. There needs to be a comeback for him or her, with Zygarde and the Garchomp there already are two other Ground Dragon. Maybe just maybe they'll give it a mega in the future.
Flygon really got its ass handed to it this generation with the introduction of Zygarde, as well as king Garchomp ravaging OU still, but I'll make something out of this set.
Flygon @ Flygonite
Ability: Tintend Lens
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpA / 252 Spe
Naive / Naughty Nature
- Dragon Claw / Outrage
- Fire Blast
- Stone Edge
Flygon's new Mega Evolution is substantially weaker than its sets that run Choice Band or Life Orb, but what makes up for its subpar Attack is its insane Speed, Tinted Lens, and ability to go mixed with its decent Special Attack. Tinted Lens is an awesome ability, boosting the power of resisted hits against certain bulky Pokemon. Here's some calculations against many physical walls in OU.
252+ Atk Tinted Lens Mega Flygon Dragon Claw vs. 232 HP / 252+ Def Skarmory: 78-94 (23.7 - 28.5%) -- possible 5HKO after Leftovers recovery
4 SpA Mega Flygon Fire Blast vs. 232 HP / 24 SpD Skarmory: 232-274 (70.5 - 83.2%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Leftovers recovery
252+ Atk Tinted Lens Mega Flygon Dragon Claw vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Forretress: 78-94 (22 - 26.5%) -- possible 5HKO after Leftovers recovery
4 SpA Flygon Fire Blast vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Forretress: 544-640 (153.6 - 180.7%) -- guaranteed OHKO
252+ Atk Tinted Lens Mega Flygon Dragon Claw vs. 252 HP / 208+ Def Ferrothorn: 84-102 (23.8 - 28.9%) -- 98.1% chance to 4HKO
4 SpA Flygon Fire Blast vs. 252 HP / 48 SpD Ferrothorn: 304-360 (86.3 - 102.2%) -- 18.8% chance to OHKO
Flygon has the ability to do a good amount of damage to many physical walls with a resisted Dragon Claw, and then finish them off with a Fire Blast. As such, Earthquake and Dragon Claw are Flygon's primary STABs, hitting a good majority of the metagame super-effectively. Stone Edge covers Flygon's biggest threat, Togekiss, who is immune to Flygon's STABs, while Fire Blast covers the likes of Scizor and Ferrothorn.
In order to succeed, Flygon needs a lot of support, due to its rather low Attack stat, so wallbreakers like Choice Banded Scizor and Swords Dance Bisharp help this. Entry hazard support is a must to ensure that Flygon can take out certain threats, and losing Levitate means that it is now weak to entry hazards, making Forretress a great partner, thanks to its ability to spin away hazards while being able to set up its own. Greninja also partners up well with Flygon, as both are speedy sweepers that can take care of certain threats that wall them, Greninja dealing with Slowbro, and Flygon taking care of Blissey.
Flygon always bugs the hell outa me. First you have trapinch: little ant-like thing with a big mouth. Then you have Vibrava, a cool dragon/mayfly-esque insect evolution. THEN you have Flygon, who looks like a snake with wings and.... goggles on his eyes? Just seemed like they had something awesome going with the insect theme and then completely disregarded it for the final evolution. wth pokemans? D:
