Alright, so now it's time for Mega Magmortar!

By undergoing Mega Evolution using the Magmortite, Magmortar can Mega Evolve into Mega Magmortar! It's body heat is approximately 4000 degrees F when it remains uncontrolled. However, Mega Magmortar is very calm and focused thanks to the organ that adornes it's forehead. Scientists belive that this organ is actually an extended part of its' brain, thus explaining its' improved power and intelligence. Mega Magmortar's arm cannons are stronger than ever, reinforced with tough armor, raising it's Defense stat. It fires fireballs with almost double the heat it used to fire previously, making it a real force to be reckoned with!

-Mega Magmortar
-Fire
-Ability: Ultra Launcher*
-BST:75/115/97/155/95/103
-Height:5'11"
-Weight:170.9 lbs


*"Ultra Launcher": "Powers up moves that don't make direct contact." (33.3%)

Magmar was one of the lucky few pokemon that recieved an evolution in gen 4, but somehow, even though its' evolution is technically stronger, it is also slower, and it doesn't really have that much over its' pre-evolved form (except for maybe Bulk and a few moves). All in all, Magmortar was not a game changing pokemon back in gen 4, and it still is rather lacking, although in lower tiers it kicks ass. I remember however how exited I was when my friend traded me the Special Magmortar from Battle Revolution, and it was actually a pretty decent pokemon. Not incredible, but still decent. But with insane power creep and stronger, bulkier pokemon running about everywhere, Magmortar, along with many others, just can't keep up. 
So.... Mega Magmortar! With a decent speed for once and a powerful ability, Mega Magmortar can actually be an option when compared even with the fire titan of OU known as Mega Charizard Y, thanks to it's massive movepool and great ability in Vital Spirit before Mega Evolving. 

As far as the design goes, I was actually surprised to learn that Magmortar(Along with Magmar and Magby) were designed to resemble Karuras, Fire creatures from Japanese Hindu-Buddhist mythology. So to go along with this idea, this design is inspired by the Hindu God of Fire, Agni, who is known to have two heads, three legs, six or seven arms and riding a ram. I incorparated concept of a third eye, to signify perception beyond normal sight, while two ram horns are covering Mega Magmortars' legs.

Hope you like it!

Why not boost the boost to 90% instead of 33.3% also why not give it a new signature move.

"Ultra Launcher" Is basically "Tough Claws" but for non-contact moves, so the boost is the same.

I think there is a place for a signature move for the Magmar line, but the Megas I've created are supposed to be extensions of existing pokemon, so I preferred to use the moves it can already learn (Also a signature Psychic move is kinda weird for a pokemon who gain this type only when it transforms)
