First Impressions: Already a defensive stalwart, Steelix would be down-right terrifying from a defensive standpoint if it got an equally insane special defense boost to compliment its already amazing physical defense. Sand Force, boosting the power of Ground, Rock, and Steel attacks while under the sand, will make Steelix much more pronounced on the offensive side of the field as well. I can already see Mega Steelix being the perfect compliment for sand teams featuring Tyranitar.
First Impressions: It’s no secret that Glalie is less than effective on the competitive scene, with its other evolution Froslass being much more prominent. With proper boosts to either its attack/special attack and speed, Refrigerate could be very useful to it as well (It’s basically the Ice-type equivalent of Aerialate, turning Normal moves into Ice and boosting them by 30%). Although Glalie does currently lack the move-pool to take full advantage of it, that’s certainly subject to change with the arrival of new moves and new tutors.
So what do you guys think of Mega Steelix and Mega Glalie? They’re definitely two out-of-the-blue additions, and both could be pretty awesome once we get to know more about them. I’ll be sure to update you guys as soon as we get more concrete info.
