Missed Mega Evolution Opportunities
There are a decent number of mega evolutions that currently exist out there. Some seem unnecessary, others seem random, and the rest seem completely warranted. Among the three main reasons a Pokémon is granted a mega evolution are existing popularity, renewing popularity, or necessary battle boost.
But this thread is not to discuss or complain about existing mega evolutions; it's to wonder why certain Pokémon didn't get one while others did. I'm sure most will say something regarding Blaziken versus the other Hoenn starters or Charizard and the other Kanto starters. That's fine as long as you think you have a point. Don't just complain. I'm here to tell you that I don't want you to come here and simply type out the name of a Pokémon you like and wished had a mega evolution. I want actual reasonings for why you think a Pokémon didn't get one.
My first example: I think Dragonite didn't get one because they couldn't come up with a name for his stone. They can't just call the stone "Dragonite" or "Dragonitite." I mean, I guess they could. I just don't think they would. Regardless, Dragonite is one of the obvious choices for a mega evolution based on his large popularity in Kanto which, to me, never seemed to truly fade. I still think it is the most popular pseudo-legend out there. Yet, Garchomp received a mega evolution and Dragonite did not. I think it is because of the developers' inability to come up with a name for Dragonite's mega stone. But hey, I could be wrong.
