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...

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.

Yeh I getcha :)
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
