And now, Mega Heliolisk!

After Mega Evolving, Heliolisk's Speed stat skyrockets along with it's Special Attack. The crest that adorn's Mega Heliolisk's neck  shows red marks when expanded, and is used mainly to intimidate the opponent. The fins that adorn Mega Heliolisk's arms and back allow it to run at incredible speed, cutting through the air and lowering the drag caused by wind. Heliolisk recieves the Dragon-type after Mega Evolving, thus giving Mega Helioptile a boost to moves such as Dragon Pulse while also giving Heliolisk a moltitude of new resistances.

-Mega Heliolisk
-Electric/Dragon
-Ability: No Guard
-BST:62/60/72/144/104/139
-Height:4'11"
-Weight:62.4 lbs

So... When Helioptile was leaked before XY were out, I was pretty exited. Seeing as it had the potential to become the first non-legendary Electric/ Dragon type in the game with it's wierd Normal secondary type, and with people constantly trying to guess how is it's evolution is going to look like, i was pretty hyped for it. When Heliolisk was confirmed to be the final evolution of the Heliolisk line, I was really dissapointed. It wasn't even close to being a badass Basilisk-Dragon, and instead we were introduced to a fast little lizard. But as I started to play the game, and came across a Helioptile, all of that didn't really matter anymore, and Heliolisk became a part of my team. despite having only Razor Wind as a Normal- type STAB, Heliolisk had so many fun options, ranging from Thunderbolt to Surf, Grass Knot and even Dark Pulse and Focus Blast.

I think that No Guard as an ability is best suited to a pokemon with such powerful attacking options.

Hope you like it!

but helioisk has no moves of which to abuse with no guard

Focus Blast and Thunder are reasons enough to have No Guard as an ability, at least from my perspective. Mega Pidgeot has only Hurricane to abuse that ability and it is considered as one of the better Mega Evolutions, Machamp was considered a nightmare to face because of Dynamicpunch (as was Conkeldurr for a while). Considering that Focus Blast becomes a reliable coverage move, while Thunder is just a Nuke that has a 30% chance to inflict Paralysis, I would say that having not one but TWO moves that are essential for Heliolisk to succeed have little to no repercussion. So I stand by my choice, and I hope that you will now too :)

Until I just read ur description I never knew that heliolisk was a normal type I always that it was a fossil or plain electric type

Yeah, Heliolisk is pretty weird when it comes to it's typing, not to mention that it just look like a middle- stage of an evolutionary line, but as I said, it grew on me in the end, not to mention that it just gives artists more excuses to make their own Megas and just plain evolutions to this line.

He also took your Mega Lugia design as well www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKLXdG…

Pretty sure there were a few others but yeah... Sorry you had to find out that way =/ he's already gone on record saying that he will not give credit to anyone unless they ask him directly so I'd probably watermark your art in the future. gyazo.com/1a46f06711ee45c98ad3…

Thank you for your concern, it really is appreciated! But I don't really care about GCPM11's videos, mostly because of the same reasons you have discussed about in your video. I actually commented on the video, though I think that won't do any real good, but hey, maybe people will be intersted enough to check out my art here on DA. Anyway, thank you for your support! Both to me and other artists!

Oh god, that'd be a scary threat to face
If ya don't out-speed or if you're not deliberately a wall, then you'd lose to this

Hehe just as I planned! :evillaugh: 
Yeah, this Mega Heliolisk was designed to be an answer to the many fast threats in today's Metagame,thanks to it's insane coverege and powerful options. But I think that the best answer to it would be Mega Altaria, since it resists Thunder and Focus Blast and is immune to Dragon Pulse. But other than that, walls and faster attackers are good answers to it as well.

Nice job! I love it how you decided to make Mega Heliolisk's type into Dragon. It's too bad Mega Ampharos came first in line with the Dragon typing though.

Thank you! Yeah, I agree with that, I even considered making him a Dark-type, but in the end, Dragon just made more sense design wise.
