Mega Beedrill

First up is the flying nightmare that is Mega Beedrill. As if the original Beedrill wasn’t already terrifying, Mega Beedrill has two extra drills and his stinger becomes yet another drill. This mean bee machine even has two notches and strategic holes in his wings to make him even more aerodynamic. Faster wasps, because mercy is for the weak. Also, the wrap around narrowed eyes are a stylish touch on this pointy Pokémon of pain.

Mega Pidegeot

Swooping in next is the mega evolution of bird jesus himself, Pidgeot. It seems like Pidgeot is going into a rebellious phase, attempting to look hip by cutting all but his red hair short. the result is a ridiculous combination of the anime standard “One really long hair sticking out front” and an overgrown rat-tail coming out of the back.

On the other hand, the new color scheme looks really nice. I particularly like the blue tint on both his wings and his tail feathers.

Mega Latios and Mega Latias

Last up is the mega evolution of both Latios and Latias. These two are the most disappointing since they both turn into nearly identical purple and white…things. Even the magazine seems disappointed, showing them at half the size of the original Pokémon versions. Maybe finer details are getting lost due to the small image size, but it feels rather lazy to me.
