SUNMOON POKEDDEX DAY 21 - Favourite Mega Evolution: Mega Rayqyaza
Okay, it was a bit weird to include Mega Evolutions to this gen’s Pokeddex because there were (fortunately) no new Mega Evolutions. I think it was a wise choice from Nintendo to only have one special form as a theme in this game - the Alolan Pokemon - and focus on that.
Mega Rayquaza’s design is gorgeous. Some parts of it are still a bit weird to me but overall it is very nice. My favourite Mega Evolution however was done for a Pokeddex challenge a couple of years back so Ray’s not my number one despite everything.
Think this is more fitting to base the mega of an alien encounter like the rest of the line, than just giving it some bigger details. Gave it steel typing as Flatwoods Monster had some metallic clothing, and levitate because well, Beheeyem already does and Flatwoods Monster was said to do as well. And also good to make it immune to ground. Another option could be adaptability as ability.
The shiny one is colored to look more like the Flatwoods Monster, with darker clothing and reddish face.
