Okay, I'm really sorry for the lack of activity for about three weeks or so (mostly because I am barely present at home), but I have managed to do some Mega Evolutions, just waiting to be scanned and colored.
As for now, here is Mega Druddigon!

When exposed to the Druddigonite, Druddigon awakens it's dormant Fire abilities, allowing it to utilise Fire type moves to a greater extent. It's body generates intense heat, and it is released through the darkned spikes on his arms and back. Since Druddigons' body temprature is always high, it's Speed and Attack greatly increases, while it's defenses recieve smaller boosts.

-Mega Druddigon
-Dragon/Fire
-Ability: Simple
-BST:77/160/105/50/120/73
-Height:6'07"
-Weight:541.2 lbs

Now, everyone is probably wondering what does the Fire type has to do with Druddigon, or the ability Simple. 
I have no clue :shrug: But it does give him at the very least a niche as a mini Mega Charizard X, and at most a powerfull physical setup wallbreaker/supporter that can deal with some of the most dangerous pokemon in the current metagame.

Hope you like it!

Maybe you should put the speed at 80 as it's at a decent level for it to be able to get of one Hone Claw and start sweeping.

Probably shouldn't have given him Simple tbh ^^;

and yeah, base 80 speed really would have given him an edge, but i dont think it would sweep unless it was against a really slow and bulky team.

Thank you! 
It such an old design, I would probably remake it if I would ever get the time or inspiration lol.
(side note, Druddigon has been of my favorite pokemon to use in BW and even XY, he was such a great physical tank and para-shuffler. I really wish it would get some buffs, or at least an evolution/Mega.)

My preferred types are Dragon and Fighting.
So Dragon like pokemon are available to me as well so the fairy users can't barrel through.
But I'm always partial to the other types, especially Steel (Melmetal)

Speaking of fairy type, Hydreigon had a very short reign at the top...

It really is sad for Hydreigon, but I think that the Fairy weakness was just the nail on the coffin. I mean, Hydreigons statline is pretty lackluster compared to previous pseudo legendaries, and compared to today's fast paced meta, 98 speed is just me.its a real shame, and hopefully it will receive new tools to help it heal with fairies or at the very least either a stat boosting move that will remedy it's speed or maybe Nasty Plot to make it an even more terrifying wall breaker.

It needs a mega.
Pokemon Insurgence made a good base for it.

I didn't know that they made a mega for him there. 
And Druddigon not only needs, but it DESERVES a Mega Evolution.

Wow, i've just seen all your Megas thanks to my friend Anarlaurendil , and i'm stunned with that one it look soooooo coool. I would like to thank you also for giving us the possibility to use your mega evolution! I can't draw properly but i begin to have some skills with pixel art, so it will be an honor to show you your creation pixelised.

Thanks again for your help and continue your amazing work, you've got quite a good idea with that fire druddigon (one of my favourite 5G Pokemon ^^)

And yes, it's always nice. In addition this Dragon Pokémon was important in his scenario.

It is true that it is much more draconian. I love it.

Thank you so much! And my pleasure! I'm sure that your project will end up as an amazing product.
Although I am considering remaking some of my megas ( Krookodile, Hydreigon and probably Druddigon as well) but I will keep all of the elements that I implemented in their original designs, just updating the artwork. But make no mistake, you can use whatever design you'd like from my Mega Evolutions!
Good luck, and thank you for contacting me first!

Dang this thing is sick! The added fire typing makes total sense with the magma crystals sprouting from its body.
