Mega Ampharos (デンリュウ) is the Mega Evolution of Ampharos, activated by using the Mega Stone, first revealed in the August 2013 edition of CoroCoro. It is an Electric/Dragon-Type, and is known as the Light Pokémon.

Mega Ampharos uses the Mold Breaker Ability, an Ability that allows its moves to work as they normally would regardless of the Abilities of the Targeted Pokémon.

Competitive Battling

Mega Ampharos is in the Underused (UU) tier of competitive battling. With a very high base 165 Special Attack, solid all-around bulk, and access to good STAB attacks, Mega Ampharos is a decent bulky attacker. Its typing allows for it to check certain threats like Entei and Gyarados. Its best set is a RestTalk physically defensive set that can act as a pivot with Volt Switch and put Mega Ampharos's solid bulk to good use. It can also run an all-out attacker set and an Agility sweeper set if one wants to opt for a more offensive route. However, Mega Ampharos is very slow, meaning that its role as a bulky attacker is not that great of a niche. It also has a limited movepool, an ability that does not offer much for it in Mold Breaker, and numerous common checks in the tier such as Krookodile, Mega Swampert, and Mega Sceptile.
