Well I think I like Mega Garchomp more than normal Garchomp, but that's not saying much since I've never liked Garchomp. I like his knife hand things and his jaw looks cool. Plus, is that a giant shark fin?

Hmm... Jury is still out on whether I'd use this thing on my competitive teams. I'll need to hear which stats it gets boosted before deciding because, while I love my Garchomp, this design isn't really doing it for me. It's not even much of an upgrade from the original Garchomp, just kinda... worse. ^^;

And the tooth zipper jacket looks. And... I... I cannot even begin to process Mega Garchomp. I'm sorry. It's gone into So Bad It's Hilarious territories.

... What is it with Mega Evolutions and huge chins, anyway?
Its certainly an interesting look... that much is for sure. Interesting being a very kind, generous way of me putting it!
It's not a bad design, the only physical feature I find unappealing is that large geometric chin. Combined with its scythes for arms, it looks like Garchomp fused together with the Grim Reaper
Yes, Game Freak seems to have an affinity for chin-enlarging for their Mega Pokemon. This Pokemon, scythe arms and all, has begun growing on me, but that chin is still bothering me. :p

Right now, I honestly don't know if I'll try to use this or not, but it's not on the top of my Mega Pokemon list.
cool now i can evleon my grachurmp i just hope thers a meag elmolen and a luxeray and a piogotto my team is 4 pokemon realy ther my top team the best of the best
It looks like an aklay from star wars with its arms out like dat. OMG THEY'VE TURNED IT INTO A BUG LIKE POKEMON AND AGAIN NOTYPE CHANGE cause a bug dragon would be awsome. there is also something that i see but i just can't put my finger on it. ????? :?

I Can't wait to see Cynthia use Mega Garchomp in Diamond and Pearl Remakes. Maybe even a Platinum remake as well. Also Gen 4 first Pokemon game, Favorite not legend Dragon Type, and Favorite Champion.:)
Can't wait for Diamond and Pearl Remakes. They should make Her Garchomp lv 80. In Platinum She was the most powerful Champion with lv 78 Garchomp. untill Steven with his lv 79 Mega Metagross. So make her the most powerful Champion like before.
