Mega Pokémon that are Special attackers:

Venusaur, Blastoise, Charizard Y, Alakazam, Gengar, Mewtwo Y, Ampharos, Houndoom, Gardevoir, Manectric, Absolº, Lucarioº, Abomasnow, Pidgeot, Slowbro, Sceptile, Camperupt, Altaria, Salamenceº, Latios, Latias, Diancie†

º usually run a Physical set
† run a Mixed set

Mega Pokémon that are dedicated Special attackers:

Blastoise, Charizard Y, Alakazam, Gengar, Mewtwo Y, Houndoom, Gardevoir, Pidgeot, Sceptile, Camerupt, Altaria, Latias, Diancie

Mega Pokémon that are bulky/semi-bulky Special attackers

Blastoise, Charizard Y, Mewtwo Y, Gardevoir, Altaria, Latias, Diancie


Okay, now that's done. We have narrowed down the special-based Mega Evolutions to those who can tank more than one non-supereffective hit. This leaves us with Blastoise, Charizard Y, Mewtwo Y, Gardevoir, Altaria, Latias and Diancie. I will provide movesets for each of them and offer a brief explanation of how they work and how to get them.

Mega Blastoise

Blastoise@ Blastoisite
Ability: Rain Dish > Mega Launcher
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 Def
Modest Nature
- Dark Pulse
- Hydro Pump
- Dragon Pulse
- Aura Sphere/Rapid Spin

Obtained: Given to you in Pokémon XY, Wonder Trade, GTS
Details: Mega Blastoise is a tank. Mega Launcher boosts the powe rof Pulse and Sphere moves. Dark Pulse, Aura Sphere and Draogon Pulse are coverage and boosted by Mega Launcher. Hydro Pump is chosen over Water Pulse due to more power. Aura Sphere can only be obtained via breeding, so Rapid Spin is a useful support move.

Mega Charizard Y

Charizard@ Charizardite Y
Ability: Blaze > Drought
EVs: 252 SpA / 252 Spe / 4 Def
Timid Nature
- SolarBeam
- Air Slash
- Protect
- Heat Wave/Fire Blast

Obtained: See Blastoise
Details: Mega Charizard Y is surprisingly bulky with 78/78/115 defences, able to survive most non-supereffective Special moves. SolarBeam is insta-charged in the Sun and eliminates Water- and Rock-types. Air Slash is STAB and Protect lets you guard against Stone Edges. Heat Wave and Fire Blast are boostedd by the Sun, but Heat Wave has better accuracy and Fire Blast has better power.

Mega Mewtwo Y

Mewtwo@ Mewtwonite Y
Ability: Pressure > Insomnia
EVs: 252 SpA / 252 Spe / 4 SDef
Timid Nature
- Psystrike
- Ice Beam
- Focus Blast
- Recover

Obtained: Capturable in Pokémon XY, GTS
Details: Mega Mewtwo Y has respectable bulk and wicked Sp. Attack. It is so strong that before the release of Mega Rayquaza, the only thing in Ubers that could hope to OHKO it was Yveltal's Sucker Punch. Psystrike is STAB while Ice Beam and Focus Miss are coverage. Recover is to give Mewtwo a longer lifespan.

Mega Gardevoir

Gardevoir@ Gardevoirite
Ability: Synchronize > Pixilate
EVs: 232 SpA / 24 Def / 252 Spe
Timid/Modest Nature
- Hyper Voice
- Psyshock
- Calm Mind
- Focus Blast/Shadow Ball

Obtained: Route 102
Details: Mega Gardevoir hits like a truck. Pixilate turns Hyper Voice into a STAB Fairy attack. Psyshock is secondary STAB. Calm Mind buffs her Special side and Focus Blast or Shadow Ball is for coverage.

Mega Altaria

Altaria@ Altarianite
Ability: Cloud Nine > Pixilate
EVs: 252 HP / 196 SpA / 60 Spe
Modest Nature
- Hyper Voice
- Fire Blast
- Roost
- Draco Meteor

Obtained: Route 114, Route 115, Sky Pillar
Details: Mega Altaria is essentially a bulkier Mega Gardevoir. Hyper Voice is Pixilate STAB as well as Draco Meteor. Fire Blast helps her not to be walled by Steel-types and Roost is for a reliable 50% recovery.

Mega Latias

Latias@ Latiasite
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 72 HP / 184 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Calm Mind
- Stored Power
- Thunderbolt
- Roost

Obtained: Captured in-game
Details: Mega Latias is bulky as heck. It's standard Calm Mind + Stored Power set can sweep teams if you get her set up. Stored Power gets stronger the more you use Calm Mind. Thunderbolt is coverage, and Roost is reliable recovery.

Mega Diancie

Diancie@ Diancite
Ability: Clear Body > Magic Bounce
EVs: 252 Spe / 252 SpA / 4 Atk
Naive Nature
- Earth Power
- Diamond Storm
- Moonblast
- Hidden Power [Fire]/Psyshock

Obtained: Event, Wonder Trade (it's happened before)
Details: Mega Diancie is a huge step up from regular Diancie. It gets a fantastic ability in Magic Bounce and has two great STAB attacks. The only problem is its rarity. Diamond Storm and Moonblast are STAB, while Earth Power covers Steel-types. Hidden Power [Fire] and Psyshock are just two of the many coverage moves that can go in the final moveslot.

Ok mr googles too much also diancie has very poor hp base stat so itll be hard for it to tank a hit
HP isn't everything. Just typing in "Diancie" in the search bar and clicking on it's Mega form would show you its amazing 160/160 defences. It can survive even supereffective Ground attacks.
Doesnt matter its like smeargle has high af defenses (230 both tbe) but with out setting up it cant survive crap without sturdy
By "Smeargle" I assume you meant "Shuckle", and no, they are alike in no way. First, Shuckle is extremely gimmicky (second only to Shedinja) and loses 9 times out of 10. Mega Diancie, however, is actually able to accomplish things. With Aegislash gone, that's one less threat she has to worry about. Mega Diancie is geared more towards being a late-game sweeper after all of the Steel Pokémon have been cleared away. Ashe also has decent offenses, speed, and a usable movepool with good coverage.
Ground/Fairy/Rock hits 321 Pokémon neutrally, 457 supereffectively and none not-very-effectively. That's if you only run three attacks and Protect/filler. HP Fire covers even more.
Thank you for the help Astronautical.

Mega Slowbro can be a good special attacker, and it can take pretty strong moves.A good moveset for it would be:
Slack Off
Calm Mind
Scald
Flamethrower/Fire Blast

If you don't want to use Slowbro, Mega Charizard Y can help you, just be sure to bring a rapid spinner or defogger. A good moveset would be:
Solarbeam
Air Slash
Flamethrower
Focus Blast/ Hidden Power Ice
