Mega Evolution didn't need to turn Salamence into a UFO

Also: Free shiny Pokemon, trainer horde battles

I love Salamence. It started with a love of Bagon, whom I named Bacon, like most sane people. He was a cute little sassy dinosaur man like previous generation favorite Larvitar. And suffering through Shelgon (worse than Pupitar) meant a majestic dragon as the reward.

Not the best character design, but I liked him a lot, and even though Mega Salamence isn't the worst offender (I might even call it an improvement, with time), I'm still beating the curmudgeonly drum that isn't down with Mega Evolutions. But, hey, they gave sexy bunny lady braided pigtails instead of regular pigtails.

Instead of Mega Evolutions, let us dress every Pokemon up in luchador masks, not just Pikachu. (Yes, I understand the resource-based unfeasibility of this).

Anyways, aside from aesthetic gripes and cosplaying Pikachu, the Shiny Beldum holding a Metagrossite Mega Stone will be available through in-game distribution at the November 21 launch. X and Y horde battles are back, too, including battles against hordes of up to five trainers. So try to get a multi-hitting move as quickly as humanly possible.
