The mega balances are looking great. Expect to see most of them in them added into the game.

NINJASKEDIT:

This competition will remain for 1 more week. After that the chosen testers will be given balance tester permissions and will be able to view the tester part of the forum.

Mega Charizard Y(Balanced)/Dex no. 006
Base stats 78/104/78/159/115/100 Total=634
Ability changes:none
Movepool changes:none
Mega zard y has a great special attack and a nice ability,drought which boosts the damage of fire types moves and allows it to use solarbeam in one turn.(for five turns)
Reason:even though Mega charizard y has great special attack,but it has average speed.most of the sweeper outspeed him.And though its typing make it immune to ground type moves,which are a big threat to fire type pokemons,it also makes it 4x weak to rock type moves and 2x to electric type moves.any rock type move from a sweeper or tank will OHKO it.Mega Charizard also lacks defence making it a little weak to physical moves.Even Flare Blitz from Blaziken can 2HKO it.Overall charizard is a good special sweeper if carefully used and though an increase in the speed stat would have been good because it can't really use any move to boost its speed(except dragon dance) and can't use choice scarf,but still it is a balanced pokemon.
Example set:
Charizard (M) @ Charizardite Y
Trait: Solar Power
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Air Slash
- Dragon Pulse
- Flamethrower
- SolarBeam
Air Slash takes out fighting types and also has a chance to make opponent Flinch,Flamethrower for grass,steel,bug and deals nice amount of damage to non resistant pokemon,dragon pulse is to stop dragon types and solar bean allows it to kill water,rock and ground types.

I'm sorry that I'm actually being very impatient here, and I do understand that not only do you have a wife and child, but.

*AHEM*

Bump.

Sorry, GBA. It's not that yours was a bad balance, just I think you may have nerfed it too much. I will be changing your balance around a little but keeping most of the changes you made the same.

Congratulations to our winners.

While I find it actually pretty funny that I got in, and was the only one whose balance didn't get in, it does make sense. Especially since not only did I not expect to get in at all, I was probably a bit harder on it in an attempt to not be biased.

Tldr; WOO IM IN!

Name: Mega Gengar UnBalanced (Minor Adjustments)
Reason:
Gengar is a very a versatile pokemon, with major coverage he is seemingly unstoppable, he could be tough to predict due to his wide variety moveset.  Gengar has a decent speed stat allowing it to outspeed a lot, but not all pokemon and its frail defenses tend to screw it if ever outsped.  Its heavy hitting base 170 SpA makes Gengar a scary hitter if given the chance. 



Mega Gengar / 094:
Old stats: 60 / 65 / 80 / 170 / 95 / 130 = 600
New stats: 60 / 65 / 80/ 170 / 95 /115 = 585
Ability changes: Levitate
Move pool changes: None
Reason: The only thing I would change is the speed, giving Mega Gengar a speed buff AND a SpA buff is dangerous for any switch in pokemon, giving it a higher chance to sweep almost anything due to it outspeeding.  I would give it levitate instead of shadow tag because a Gengar Mega evolving in battle is predictable and can be EQ’ed and taken out too early.  Shadow tag is useless unless you are destiny bond/perish song stalling with protect, which is a useless tactic when you have such a flexible weapon. 
Example set:

Mega Gengar (M) @ gengarite
Trait: Levitate
EV’s: 252 SpA/252 Speed/ 4 HP
Timid Nature (+speed, -SpA)
-Protect
-Energy Ball/Tbolt
-Sludge Bomb
-Shadow Ball
Running protect will allow it to safely mega evo and gain the small speed boost for the next move, it has coverage moves, so, it can lead.  Energy Ball is for Excadrills that are used as spinners, they run EQ with Mold Breaker and are a good check to Gengar.

First off, welcome to PU, pabloabeytia. I know you from Pokemon Omega.

Second, well done. I like the small nerf to gengar. The loss of shadowtag and 15 pt speed is not a huge nerf but it drops Mgengar down a peg or two.

Mega heracross
Old stats:80/185/115/40/105/75=600
New stats:80/185/115/40/115/45=580
Add movepool: drain punch

It's speed was lowered to better go with its now higher bulk and huge attack. Drain punch was added for some recovery.

Mega-heracross is very weak to status effects ,and of course gets out sped by just about everything so it will not be sweeping on its own. Mega heracross can sweep with trick room support ,but other than that it will not be easy for it to sweep on its own.

Example set:

Mheracross
Trait: Skill link
Adamant 252 att 252 hp 4 sp.def
Drain punch
Pin missile
Rock blast
Bullet seed

Pretty self explanatory just switch in and start wrecking. Pin missile's power and accuracy was raised this gen so he has a 125 Bp highly accurate move that he can spam. Pin missile will do high damage even to things that resist it.  He can also use bulk up to great effect with his raised sp.def.

Well done. I've found MegaCross to be lackluster, I can't wait to see if this stat/move change willl help.

Thanks roloc! I do not think mega hera is going to be the best bug for your mono-bug team though. It will how ever be the best trick room sweeping mega ,and I think  it could really fit in on a more defensive team.
