Now, I already knew about this Pokemon; it was one of the leaked Mega Pokemon I've seen, so it's not a surprise. I will say, however, that the official artwork does it justice; it looked terrible in the in-game screenshot to me.
It's not my favorite Mega Evolution, (Mega Absol and Mega Banette gets all the love) yet I couldn't resist using one. IT'S SO GOOD!! (P.S: Regular colored Gengar is better than shiny colored Gengar.)
I can see why Mega gengar is in ubers. I can hardly see a way to defeat thing thing. Only thing I can think of that can defeat it easily is mega kanghaskan. The. Again people can also out predicts you.
At first I hated this Mega, but now I kinda like it. I don't like the third eye though, and how it's legs and hands are in the ground either. Other than that I think it is pretty cool. The shiny version looks badass :D
Shiny Mega Gengar looks cooler in my opinion. I just think some of the shiny pokemon look better than the regular ones.
I think I'm the only one who ISN'T looking foward to the shiny Mega Gengar event as my 3DS is glitched and frozen. :( But Mega Gengar is still cool in my opinion and its shiny is possibly the most coolest ghost type shiny (except for Chandelure and male jellicent cuase i like green) I've ever seen. But how is is it not banned by Smogon yet? (Or is it and i havent been paying attention?)
GENGAR LOVE MEGA-EVOLUTION !!! unfortunately mega-gengar looses its levitation ability making it weak to ground type (i think) so if you ever battle one use EARTHQUAKE!!! apparently it is so strong that it has been banned from online Pokemon tournament battles! GENGAR RULES HA HA HA HA HAAAAA!
