Mega Sableye was revealed recently. From what I've seen you either love it or you hate it. What's your take on Sableye's Mega Evo?

That's a tough one, for me personally, I'm not a big fan of mega-evolution in general, it feels cheap and tacked on to me. Pokemon evolution has always been permanent, I don't like that they went back on that with it, it feels like Digimon to me, not to mention, most of the mega forms just look like the original with spikes added to it, like some cheesy fanart

Again, my opinion. -raises flame shields-
@Ilitsa

I somewhat agree with your opinion on mega evolutions. I'm not really a huge fan of them either. But I don't "hate" them I guess.  I assumed they were only temporary because they didn't plan on having Mega Evolutions in future games (like 7th Gen). If that's true then it is kind of "tacked on" for 6th Gen.

I hate this one. I agree with you, Ilitsa about most megas. (Especially Lucario) They are really cheap, 90% of the time.

Actually, some mega stones can be bought for  PokémonDollar.png100,000 - 1,000,000
i mean  PokémonDollar.png10,000- 1,000,000

Someone takes stuff literally XD
I would have to disagree. I believe the Mega Evolution for any Pokemon is awesome in it's own nature. To be able to take a Pokemon and surpass it's highest evolutional stage is beyond me. Also, you must understand it's not like a first stage or even a second stage. It's the bond the trainer shares with it's Pokemon. A stage within it's own. I personally think it adds more to the Pokemon universe and am looking forward towards more Mega Evolutions. Sign me up for the new games. Can't wait until November.

In the game you could probably feed your weedle to a pidgeotto and still have it mega evolve (if weedle mega evolved).
And what planet is pokemon on? It must be huge.

I can't speak for Ilitsa, but I just don't like how small the changes were, and the fact that only fan favourites got megas, with the two most popular Pokemon ever, one of which I hate, getting two.

I meant cheap as in I think it's a rip-off that they claim Lucario with practically unnoticable changes is a whole new form or, an ascension from normal evolution.
The sybaleye to me, looks like a hurry up job. competively might be another story. looks like its types will change or its defense will go up

Serebii says "Mega Sableye uses the jewel as a powerful defensive tool in battle." So most likely yes.

Not likely. You know terrible Game Freak can be with abilities.

If they get the stats or the ability right, then I'll like it. For now, I hate it.
I always thought that this particular Pokemon would get a Mega, but this one... not necessarily the most ORIGINAL one. But hey, not anyworse than he ones who created Mega Kangaskahn and that thing was so powerful it was GASH DANG BANNED.
Overall I still like this Mega.

Yup! Save this welcome for the introductions section. Let's not get too off track in the news comments.
Sableye could be a very good Defensive Prankster you know.

No seriously. If Sableye has good defences, then it can annoy opponents with Wow and T-Wave.
a CRYSTAL?????!!!
TOO ORIGINAL
THE CRYSTAL IS A GOOD DEFENSIVE WEAPON BUT I'D RADTHER
GO WITH ALL OUT OFFENCE INSTEAD OF DEFENCE AND THE MEGA EVELUTION LOOKS RUSHED
pikagay
you're too picky
it look's like a mutant from mega kanga .-.
im pretty sure there will be alpha and ruby mega versions of sableye

Stance Change is almost definetly Sableye's ability, if not then it's a bulky prankster.

Why, I don't get it. Stance change between Jewel Form and Attack Form. Or the Jewel can boost its defences, but it keeps the same ability like Blaziken did when it had a mega evo.

I doubt sableye would get Stance Change. I mean for one thing look at mawile, its de facto counterpart. See how its mega is hyper-offensive? It would only make sense if mega sableye would be purely hyper-defensive

What?
Further details have been revealed about the Pokémon, Mega Sableye. It is confirmed that Mega Sableye retains its Dark/Ghost-type, but rather than keep any of the abilities, it gets the ability Magic Bounce. It has increased Defense and Special Attack stats, but decreased Speed. During battle, Mega Sableye shelters itself behind the jewel, from where it can take advantage of any openings its target leaves exposed.

Thanks Serebii. Right, I hate this thing now. It's ability sucks and it's design is lazy.

I was genuinely worried for about 2 seconds .-.
Just wanna say, just because it doesn't have a beneficial PVP ability, doesn't mean it's terrible. PVP is a very small portion of a pokemon game, and as much as I dislike mega evolutions in general, I think this will be a really good pokemon to use in the game.

I don't know how it'd work, but as many other pokemon with mega evolutions try to evolve on the first turn, Sableye can work differently, maybe starting as a prankster and then evolving to take advvantage of magic bounce... we're all yet to see it play, but I think this would be an interesting play, even if it takes item advantages on the first few turns from it.

Thankfully, I'm not too bothered by some of Smogon's decisions. That said, UBER AEGISLASH SVP!
