Mega Meganium by ManiacalMew Mega Meganium by ManiacalMew
EDIT - Just to clarify, given the rumors I've seen about this being an official character... It's FAKE! I designed it.
I guess it's kinda nice people think it looks official though, I was trying to imitiate Sugimori's style...


I finally drew something new..!!! Been a while huh... ^^;
So, mega Pokemon! Wasn't sure what to make of it at first but now I'm thinkin' the idea seems like it's gonna be a lot of fun, and I'm interested to see which other characters get the mega makeover. I like that the mega forms are temporary, so technically they aren't replacing any Pokemon with them. The only thing of concern that I can think of is that the stat boosts could make them a bit too overpowered, but I should think Game Freak would have thought of that...

So yeah, I suddenly really wanted to play around with Meganium's design, and here's the result. The foliage is based on Drosera plants (A.K.A. Sundews), a type of carniverous plant covered in tons of beads of mucilage that look like dew. With this being a Pokemon design though I couldn't draw hundreds of circles all over it without making the design far too complex, so I've tried to simplify that while retaining the look of the plants it was based on... I hope it worked somewhat. Other than the plant differences, Mega Meganium also has different toe claws and a much longer tail than Meganium.
And here's a random new ability for it:

Flytrap - Grass type Pokemon with this ability lose their weakness to bug type attacks. The Pokemon's damaging attacks will deal super-effective hits on bug type Pokemon.

Anyhow, hope you guys enjoy the design...

Wow, coming from someone that rarely likes fakemon type stuff, this design is incredible. Not only the art, but the concept and ability, you planned it all very well, and it's easy to see that you had an idea before making the design. The ability is also interesting, though possibly more fitting on a potential Mega Carnivine, and fits well with your concept. Great job :)

It looks nice design-wise, so can we get a stat distribution? Remember, Mega Evolution adds 100 to the Base Stat Total.

If you want my advice, perhaps you could add onto its Defense, Special Defense and Special Attack and give it the Regenerator Ability. That way, it'd probably work as a more balanced version of Tangrowth that can also act as a cleric with Aromatherapy, unless you have a better idea.

I imagined this getting a boost to its special stats, but unfortunately I haven't got any specific numbers in mind. I prefer to focus on the designs with these, I imagine that if I post stats I'll probably end up having those 'it's overpowered/not powered up enough' conversations :D

I see. I guess it's okay if you don't want to. Designs are cool and all, but it's hard for me to learn much about Pokemon just by its apppearance. If Smogon tiers went by Pokemon designs, colors and originality rather than stats and viability, Wobbuffet would be on the bottom and Charizard and Umbreon would be on top, which is funny because it's the other way around in terms of power.

I like a bit of both, it's helpful to know about the stats too if you want to do well in the harder battles, but I guess I prefer to use pokemon based on what I like about their designs. There's so many brilliant characters who suck competively, but I train 'em anyway cuz they're fun to use :D

I'd entertain the idea of designing a bit more around its body simply because meganium is naturally bland there, but that might make it look like too much like a fully-fledged evolution. The mega-evolution process seems to really be about smaller adjustments, and yours fits perfectly with the style they've established. I think yours is good enough to venture further though, and that's a good thing! :D

I get what you mean, I think I probably could have changed a few more bits of the body design. At the time I didn't want to change too much because I'd already completely altered the flower, but when I look at it now I think I probably would have done the head shape differently, at least.

Well I've now checked out that link! No I wasn't aware of that. I suppose I'm somewhat flattered people think my artwork looks official, but at the same time...
But yeah, not sure what to do about it exactly! Now the games are out I should think people will soon realise that was faked anyway...

Oh and you shouldn't worry I think, you know lots of people made lots of fakes using others pictures but at the end everybody always know it's fake. They just wanted some speculations. Now the game's out, it will end ! :)

My friend showed me a picture of the gamefreak directors standing in front of a poster with meganium and mega meganium supposedly on it. And I swear this is the exact design that mega meganium had. I may be wrong though. I have terrible memory.
