When Pokemon X and Y first debuted a little over a year ago, fans were so excited to see some of their favorite Pokemon from past generations take things to a new level. Mega Evolution added something to the Pokemon franchise that some fans considered much needed; giving some of the older and underrated Pokemon (not counting creatures like Charizard or Mewtwo) a much needed power boost through Mega Evolution.
I’m not going to type up this blog and tell you that I was not excited to see some Pokemon who rarely saw the field of battle given a mega form like Mawhile or Manectric. Though I am a bit disappointed that Mega Evolution is becoming a little less special when it began to look like every Pokemon and its mother was being handed out a mega form.
Now this is just a prediction blog, but one mega that I’d love to see would be a Mega Snorlax!
This is one Pokemon that I’d love to see get a power boost (not saying that Snorlax needs one necessarily). Well I think aside from stat increases, I feel that I’d be more interested in seeing what a Mega Snorlax would look like.
If you ask me I think that a Mega Snorlax would have 3 changes in appearance from a regular Snorlax:
- Mega Snorlax would have its eyes open
- It would be buff and muscular
- It would be standing up!!!
Now based on the picture above, you’ll see that this fan-made Mega Snorlax fits all 3 descriptions that I just listed.
What made me begin to speculate about a Mega Snorlax eventually being a thing was when we first saw screenshots from Pokemon X and Y. In the picture we saw something that we have never seen before even way back in the days of Pokemon Red and Blue; Snorlax had a STANDING sprite!!!!!
I don’t know…I mean Snorlax always appearing in the games laying back and even sitting up in some games might have hinted that it had a dormant power that had yet to be tapped into.
Looking at the sprites from Generation 3, it seems like Snorlax was attempting to get up but fell back into a deep sleep. Moving on to Generation 4 to 5, Snorlax is actually sitting up! Then we get to the Kalos region and it is now standing up!!
In terms of a bulkier appearance, I think that a Mega Snorlax would be the ultimate “Bulk Up” in the sense that its ton of fat would be turned into pure muscle. How’s that for a powerhouse Pokemon?
Finally, when the transformation is nearly complete we see Snorlax open its eyes and give out a loud roar as it prepares for battle!
Now in terms of ability, I think it would probably have Scrappy or Huge Power. I mean Huge Power doubles Attack so yes this would be a killer Snorlax!
I really hope that we do get a Mega Snorlax in the new Generation 3 remakes because I’d love to see it?
Would you also like to see a Mega Snorlax? What other Pokemon would you like to see get a Mega Evolution and why?
