At first I was a bit indifferent towards this design but the more I stare at it, the more I'm warming up to it. Overall I'm just glad that they finally confirmed the Mega Evolutions for Swampert and Sceptile. ^^
Its a big lump of Axolotl :love:! I find it awesome, its a big tank just like torterra ^^!! I love it even through Swampert is mostly based off a mudskipper I see they based it more off a Axolotl now with its mega evolution :p

I'm really growing on this design now. It makes me want to choose Mudkip, which I was already considering.

And Swift Swim is not bad, considering that this does not look like it will gain much in the way of Speed.
Totally, in fact, I think it might get its speed lowered.

Love Mega Swampert's design. I feel it really fits its tanky-nature. Swift Swim is a nice boost too. Sceptile is my favourite Starter and one of my favourite Pokemon, so obviously poor Swampert won't be being picked by me... but dang does this make the choice a little bit harder :)
Always been a Swampert girl so I was really happy to hear of his mega evolution. I love the design since I love bulky pokemon. Swift swim though a great ability is a bit of a disappointment mostly in its lack of originality. I has to be one of the most widespread abilities in the game :(. I was hoping for something like Immunity or Guts to fit his theme more and his role as a tank.
I was never really into the Mudkip line before, but even before Mega Swampert was revealed I was recently starting to fall in love with it. And now that I've seen this impressively massive behemoth, I'm definitely planning on getting it as one of my starters
Yeah... No... Mega Sceptile All the way, A Dragon type that would own Wattson if ORAS has the same level curve as XY

I agree that mega swampert is pretty cool but for a dragon type user like me Mega Sceptile all the way (sorry for using the same phrase) We finally have a dragon/grass type and i was starting to feel bad about sceptile since it missing out on getting to type in regular RS and now its wait has paid off cause it got the best type-age EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DRAGONS RULE AND WELCOME TO THE TEAM MEGA SCEPTILE!!!

But still Mega Swampert is pretty cool, I mean talk about a Hulk Smash! Ha Ha Ha! 'snicker'
