Catch a wild Camerupt of Lv 79 in Alpha Sapphire
. It’s Ivs are pretty awsome and the ability was Soild Rock.
Here’s the current one:

Camerupt Lv.79 @No item
Ability:Soild Rock
-Rock Slide
-Heavy Slam
Camerupt fits well in my team seems I dont has a ground type Pokemon, which don’t cover any share typing. But the only problem was that have a Blaziken holding Blazikenite, which won’t able to let camerupt to mega evolve.

My Current team:

Blazer (Blaziken-Mega) (M) @ Blazikenite
Ability: Speed Boost
EVs: 196 HP / 252 Atk / 60 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Blaze Kick
- Brave Bird
- High Jump Kick
- Earthquake

Blue Mango (Azumarill) @ Leftovers
Ability: Thick Fat
EVs: 196 HP / 252 Atk / 60 SpD
Brave Nature
- Play Rough
- Aqua Tail
- Superpower
- Ice Punch

Cutie (Sylveon) @ Leftovers
Ability: Pixilate
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Def / 252 SpA
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk / 30 SpA / 30 Spe
- Hyper Voice
- Heal Bell
- Psyshock
- Hidden Power [Fire]

Gogoat @ Leftovers
Ability: Sap Sipper
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD
Relaxed Nature
- Earthquake
- Horn Leech
- Rock Slide
- Zen Headbutt

Reuniclus @ Leftovers
Ability: Magic Guard
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD
Quiet Nature
IVs: 0 Atk / 30 SpA / 30 Spe
- Shadow Ball
- Psychic
- Flash Cannon
- Hidden Power [Fire]

So, at last, the question was:
-Should I use a Camerupt?
-Or, if yes, should I use a mega camerupt instead of a mega kanganshan?
-Is Camerupt worth training?

Funnily enough, someone made a video with the exact title of this thread. It gives you competitive info, so I'd give it a watch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WbbFBogcmyQ

I honestly think Mega Kang is better, since Mega Kang is an uber while Mega Camerupt is RU in Gen 6.

I think this page, especially the UU Overview, highlights its problems really well: https://www.smogon.com/dex/xy/pokemon/camerupt/uu/
"On paper, Mega Camerupt has many of the tools requred to be an offensive or defensive staple in Underused. In practice however, Mega Camerupt is quite subpar: it either trades the ability to hit like a truck for its defensive prowess or vice-versa, and its paltry Speed stat guarantees opposing Taunts or attacks will land before Mega Camerupt has an opporunity do anything. A lack of reliable recovery and poor defensive typing also puts Mega Camerupt on a timer: without Wish support, Mega Camerupt will be worn down quickly. If anything, access to Stealth Rock gives it a tiny niche on bulkier teams in terms of role compression. However it comes at the cost of consuming a team's Mega slot; Mega Swampert, Mega Aerodactyl, and the other Mega Evolutions accessible to Underused are much better options and provide more utility for their team. Because of how little Mega Camerupt actually offers a team, it is recommened that other Mega Evolutions be considered over Mega Camerupt."

And those are just its UU problems. If you want to run it on a playthrough team or in a lower tier, I'd highly reccomend training it up, but otherwise, ehh

Sorry but please mention this was for in-game team
Oh, oops. Anyways, I said: "If you want to run it on a playthrough team or in a lower tier, I'd highly reccomend training it up, but otherwise, ehh"
ok, i see
