Mega Sandslash by Sea-Salt Mega Sandslash by Sea-Salt
Mega Sandslash

Stat changes upon Mega Evolving:
Attack: + 45
Special Attack: - 25
Defense: + 5
Special Defense: + 5
Speed: +45

Ability: Grindstone- The user sharpens its claws on tougher opponents. The higher the enemy's defense, the more damage the user inflicts.

Mega Evolve from Sandslash when holding Sandslanite.

With the recent reveal of Mega pokemon, I couldn't resist trying my hand at one of my favorites. I'm not quite sure the details involved as to what changes stat-wise when a certain pokemon mega-evolves, but I imagine that Sandslash would shed a bit of his Defense to boost his Speed and Attack. Once we learn a bit more about these forms, I'll update Mega Sandslash's info.

EDIT 11/2/13: Now that the game has been out for close to a month now, we have a general idea of how the Mega forms work stat-wise. I did my best to divvy up the stat boosts to fit the average total 100 that most of the Mega forms get, plus to fit what I assume would be a straight-up melee fighter. Plus I liked the idea of an ability that totally messes over the competitive types who spam wall pokemon. : p

So quite the change in attack, but I have to wonder... Since defense is sandslash's highest stat, wouldn't that get the largest boost?

This is by far my favourite mega evolution fake.

This Mega-Evo needs to exist! We don't need Mega-Tyranitar! We need a evo for Dunsparce too! X3

Great Mega-Sandslash BTW!

Reminds me of one of the Moomba's from Final Fantasy, which I think is really cool.

show this to someone and they will believe its real XD i love the design and all, perfect
SeriesArtiststarter Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I whole heartedly agree with you on Sandslash going Mega, gotta say though this design makes me think WILD MAN Pokémon, though the defence being cut for Attack and Speed sounds about right

Good God this is good! I Love Sandslash and I actually really hope he gets a Mega Evolution! I mean, Lucario and Absol were good pokemon already and they got Mega Forms out of the blue.

I personally think Sandslash is good on its own, but its fake Mega evolution looks pretty good. 9/10
