I just got 64 BP and have a Mewtwo and wanna get a Mega Stone, but which do I get? (My Mewtwo's nature is Quirky if that matters). I want a mega form with good health and attack. :D

Mainly depends on mewtwo's nature
Quirky does nothing. (+/-Sp. Def)
What do you want to do with this Mewtwo?

Best answer

Mega Mewtwo X

Pros:

  • Pretty good offensive typing, with two STABs and its fighting type covers a psychic type's weakness
  • Great attack stat and good speed, capable of being a very formidable physical sweeper
  • Access to Earthquake, a powerful physical coverage option
  • Can utilize Drain Punch for significant HP gain to compliment decent bulk

Cons:

  • Lacks a strong psychic type physical move, and is limited to Psycho Cut and Zen Headbutt
  • Lacks stronger fighting type physical moves such as Close Combat and High Jump Kick, and Low Kick can be situational
  • Physical elemental coverage moves such as Fire Punch are much less powerful than special ones like Fire Blast

Mega Mewtwo Y

Pros:

  • Great special attack stat, also making it an offensive threat
  • 10 stats faster than Mewtwo X, oustpeeding Mega Gengar, which is a powerful threat
  • Thanks to better special attack stat, Mega Mewtwo Y is great with Psystrike, a powerful and accurate STAB psychic move that breaks special walls like Ho-oh, Blissey, and Chansey
  • Great coverage options such as Shadow Ball, Aura Sphere, Fire Blast, and Ice Beam
  • Access to Calm Mind, a great set up move that is complimented by exceptional special defense

Cons:

  • Is very weak against Sucker Punch, which is commonly run on Yveltal
  • Has only one STAB, slightly hindering offensive capabilities

Who is better?

Mega Mewtwo Y is the better mega in this case. It is faster and Mewtwo's special movepool is much better than physical, consisting of a powerful STAB Psystrike and more powerful coverage. Mega Mewtwo Y is probably weak against Yveltal, which is very common, but Mega Mewtwo Y's advantages outweigh the disadvantages.
