Mega Arbok

Okay, so after a looong hiatus, and alot of work inbetween, I give you my version to Mega Arbok!

By using the Arboknite, Arbok is capable of Mega Evolving into Mega Arbok. The mark on its belly became more vicious than before, terrifying even the most fearless of opponents. Arbok's scales have become mostly black in color and denser than before, raising it's defenses slightly. Mega Arbok's long body is adorned with spikes filled with powerful toxins, and it's tail resemles it's previous head, giving smaller opponents a hard time choosing which head to defend against. However, Mega Arbok's greatest boost is the addition of the Dragon-type to it's previous form, allowing it to use moves such as Dragon Tail far more effectively, while giving it new resistances and power!

-Mega Arbok
-Poison/Dragon
-Ability:Simple
-BST:60/135/89/35/104/115
-Height:17'11"
-Weight:227.6 lbs

Arbok is another sad case, and probably one of the saddest in the whole franchise. Unlike pokemon like Farfetch'd and Duncparce, who are doomed from the start with their underwhelming stats and lack of evolution, Arbok is an evolved pokemon with so many moves in it's disposal, a unique boosting move in Coil, and strong attacks like Gunk Shot, Earthquake and Sucker Punch to name a few. It's abilities are great, with Intimidate and Shed Skin each giving some other way to make Arbok either bulkier or a physical sweeper that doesn't mind status. Too bad it's stats are crap, and there are a million things that are stronger than it, even with all of it's unique options and moves. So what to do? Give it a Mega of course!
With a Poison/Dragon type it gets great coverege, as Poison/Dragon/Ground is only resisted by a small amount of pokemon, and with the Simple ability, Coil becomes and incredible setup move, and with Intimidate pre-Mega Evolving, Arbok can become incredibly hard to take down, while base 135/115 offenses are give it enough power to break through many offensive and defensive pokemon after boosting, while outspeeding key threats who reside in the crowded 110 Speed tier. Also, Sucker Punch gives it the ability to threaten fast and frail Psychic and Ghost types. Also it gets access to Dragon Rush and Toxic Spikes.

Whew, that was long.
Anyway, hope you like it!

If Arbok have a real Mega Evolution then it would be meta if it's second type isn't Dragon as the only Dragon type move it can learn is Dragon Tail. If it's second type is Dark then that's a whole different story.

I do agree with that, that's why I want it to get Dragon Rush. If only..... :(

Looks more like a Poison-Dark than Poison-Dragon

If Pokemon can have a third type, then this one would've been a Dark-type as well.

It really does look the part, doesn't it?

I think Arbok could use a normal evolution instead with similar stats/typing.

It really could, but Nintendo hasn't done anything similar to an expansive evolution tree since Gen 4 (excluding Sylveon), so I think that a Mega is more probable.

It could happen, though.

Great design! Dragon is a good typing; though I like Dark for Arbok, and this design captures it well :) (Smile)

I think the type should be Poison Dark that imo would suit it better

Yeah I get that alot. But I think that the Dragon typing is a little more interesting.

My Arbok is a boss, but a speedy glass canon none the less
