    Default Mega Bugs: Pinsir

    Pinsir is one of three bugs that received a mega evolution in Pokemon X & Y. Pinsirite is found in Santalune Forest in Pokemon X after defeating the Elite Four. Pinsir has always taken a back seat to Heracross ever since the Johto pokemon were added. All those Fighting moves without the STAB boost. Now not only can it hold its own against Heracross, but can defeat it one on one. Mega evolution not only gives both defenses a nice 20 point boost in their base, but boosts both its Attack and its Speed. With this in mind I bred these with a Jolly (+Speed, -SpAttack) nature.

    Pinsir's hidden ability is Moxie. Moxie boosts its Attack one stage (50%) each time it knocks out an opponent. Hyper Cutter prevents opponents from lowering Pinsir's Attack. Mold Breaker prevents a pokemon's ability from affecting a move (Yes, Pinsir can learn Earthquake and this ability allows it to hit levitating pokemon). No matter what Pinsir's ability is once you mega evolve it the ability will change to Aerilate. Aerilate boosts the power of Normal type moves 30% and changes them to Flying type moves. Mega Pinsir changes to a Bug/Flying type to give these moves an additional 50% STAB boost raising the total boost to 95% or almost double their original power

    These Pinsirs come with the following egg moves:

    • Fury Attack - Normal - Power 15, Accuracy 85 - Never one of my favorite moves, but a multi-hit STAB Flying move is nice until you can use Return at full strength.
    • Quick Attack - Normal - Power 40, Accuracy 100 - A speed priority move, meaning it usually goes before the opponent's attack. Think of it as a Power 78 Flying priority move on Mega Pinsir.
    • Feint Attack - Dark - Power 60, Accuracy Can't Miss - I love how this has been Faint Attack for years and now they finally change it. It took them this long to find a correct translation.
    • Close Combat - Fighting - Power 120, Accuracy 100 - The user fights up close without guarding itself causing severe damage, but lowering its Defense and Special Defense one stage.


    No Bug attacks, but it will learn X-Scissor as a level up move or through TM
    These all have IVs of 31/31/31/X/31/31.

    Keep in mind once these mega evolve they will all have the Aerilate ability

    Moxie ♀ 0/2 (Killerjeff88, sasuke715)
    Moxie ♂ 1/6 (UnderFudge, GoldChico, Alirrath, Mario, Sabin)
    Hyper Cutter ♂ 0/1 (Bugcatcher6)


    These are in my Pokemon Y game and if you haven't registered me then leave your friend code in the post along with a nickname if you prefer. My Friend code is 2466-2668-6626.
    I'm not looking for any particular pokemon. If there is something you bred, that is great, other than that just send over something you don't want. Heart Scales are always appreciated in this generation as I bypass many level up moves to keep the egg moves intact during breeding.

    I didn't get to thank you for our trade. I was on my 3DS, but not around my laptop at the time.

    And also anymore I find the iTrader to be too time consuming to use.

    I am getting lazy.

    Amazing event, as all of your events are.
