Mega Beedrill (スピアー) is a Bug/Poison type Mega Evolution that debuts in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.


Mega Beedrill uses the Adaptability Ability, which boosts all moves that share their type with this Pokemon and increases STAB (Same Type Attack Bonus) from 1.5x to 2x.

It was revealed on October 10, 2014 after a leak of the October Edition of CoroCoro, alongside Mega Pidgeot, Mega Latias and Mega Latios.

Biology

Physiology

Mega Beedrill takes on a number of different changes after undergoing Mega Evolution. Most noticeably, it's now more inclined outwards, now taking on a more streamlined shape. It's stingers extend to replace it's feet and and grow taller on it's top arms. It's bottom stinger now becomes much more streamlined as well, having it's stinger replaced with one that matches the ones on it's arms and legs, it is now presumably sharper and has gained more ability for damage.

It's eyes now take a wider area, making it look greatly intimidating, it's wings have also spread and have thinned out, with the overall color pattern remaining untouched.

Gender Differences

Mega Beedrill doesn't appear to have any differences to differentiate between male and female.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Mega Beedrill is a part of the Underused (UU) tier of competitive battling. Thanks to great Attack and Speed stats coupled with Adaptability, Mega Beedrill is an extremely powerful pivot U-turn. This allows for Mega Beedrill to gain the momentum for a team very often and makes it among the best offensive Pokémon in the tier as a result. Its overall power makes it a great revenge killer and powerful threat to deal with, but its frailty and shallow movepool do hinder its ability to be a ruthless force in the tier. It is forced to run Protect because of its mediocre Speed before Mega Evolving, limiting its coverage options even further. Despite this, it is still among the tier's best momentum gainers and a threat to watch out for.

Mega Beedrill is also viable in the Overused (OU) tier of competitive battling. After Mega Evolving, Mega Beedrill is an imposing threat that can quickly gain momentum for a team due to its high Speed and strong U-turns. This makes it hard to pin down and take out as a threat due to its constant momentum gaining from U-turn. However, it does suffer from being very frail and weak to Stealth Rock, which limits the amount of opportunities it can switch in. It also has relatively poor coverage and struggles against defensive Pokémon one on one.
