The Mega Evolved version of Pidgeot, while not as game-changing as say… Mega Charizard, it will definitely massively shift the Flying-type PvE meta. Megas, in general, are super overpowered, and the Supah Chicken is no exception to that rule. It will be a beast in raids against anything weak to Flying-type moves.
From a personal standpoint, I am extremely excited about the release of Mega form of Pidgeot. All those Pidgey caught and evolved for XP, the one perfect Pidgey that has been saved, and leveled up to 40 for over a year in anticipation of this day! Finally, the Supah Chicken dream is a reality! So get your Pidgey’s ready, get your Raid teams ready. It’s time for a big chicken dinner!
