Pinsir @ Pinsirite
Ability: Hyper Cutter / Aerilate
EVs: 156 attack, 100 speed, 252 HP
- Swords Dance
Mega Pinsir has potential, though it is cursed with the horrible dual typing of Bug and Flying, arguably the worst typing in the game. Even with this obstruction, Aerilate is a wonderful ability, not unlike Mega Gardevoir's Pixilate, although Mega Pinsir's ability is much more useful.
The EV spread on this Pokémon may seem odd, but it is to have Mega Pinsir to be able to live at least one hit, set up a Swords Dance, then attack the next turn when it's speed has actually become the speed of the Mega Evolution.
When using this Pokémon, do keep in mind that the move Return becomes flying-type when used by this Pokemon; Return is already a devastating move, but with 153 power with stab, and the ability to be super effective, no Pokemon will enjoy taking this hit, even before a Swords Dance. Also, Earthquake is an excellent coverage move, making Mega Pinsir able reek havoc amongst all Pokemon, and not be forced to be switched out by the rock types and other common weaknesses that it's horrible typing fears.
