Mega Parasect by Ironwolf09 Mega Parasect by Ironwolf09
Happy Halloween Everybody, have some magic mushrooms

Mega Parasect

Parasect doesn't get enough love, even though I think that it has one of the best designs and concepts
of all the Pokemon. At first you have a symbiotic relationship with an insect and some fungus, and when it evolves
it turns into a zombie nightmare, with he fungus taking complete control (explaining the white eyes). It's great
and interesting and I'm afraid that Parasect will never get an evolution or mega evo because even though it's 
a good concept, its stats aren't the greatest and people seem to forget him. That is why I have decided to make
my first Mega evo.

When designing this evo, I really wanted to use glowing/bio luminescent mushrooms because we haven't seen any
official pokemon with any. With that in mind I felt that I had to change the color scheme, so I went and took the 
colors of Charizard X. I think I just wanted to kinda make fun of the fact that only Charizard X really had a change 
in color and if Charizard can so can little'ol Parasect. And who knows, maybe this is Parasect X, and there is a
Parasect Y that stays orange.

Why not make it a Bug/Dark for its types?
TheMehssenger Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2015
The typing is bad. It gains nothing from it. Design wise it's okay, but implementing the idea of bioluminescent mushrooms unfortunately led to "the idea shaping the typing" rather than "the typing shaping the idea." That's one of the worst things to do with a Mega as it often leaves a fan made Mega with a useless typing.

I really like Parasect. Seeing a mega evolution like this gives me hope-it looks so awesome! :D

7/10, too much water.

Really though, this is a really good idea.  I feel like the mushroom would have bonded to the Parasect so much that it ends up having two brains, and split personalities, the actual parasect, and the mushroom =D
The design is perfect, too.

It's pretty awesome! Although, I'm wondering why you made it a Fairy.
sprites4all Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2015
I'm pretty sure it's because mushrooms, especially those that glow, are associated with gnomes and fairies.
ava-tobiax Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2015
Ah. I see. But aren't gnomes just ceramic statues?
EurekaTrollcat Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I love this. The color scheme is awesomely perfect.

It especially makes me think of the Leech King of Twitch Plays Pokemon. I'd like to think that this is what he because after we released him.

I've been making up my own Mega Evolutions lately.  Not designs, but just how the stats, typing, and abilities would be on a potential Mega if I were to design one.

I would pretty much just take away Parasect's Grass typing altogether.  Besides, Mushrooms aren't plants.  They're fungi.  Two totally different life forms.

Yay, parasect finally gets some love from someone other than me! Yay!
waterfuzzy Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I like Parasect too! And I love your design, it reminds me of the Glowcaps from Pikmin.
Hexidextrous Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2014
Reminds me of the Leucochloridium paradoxum a.k.a. "Zombie Snails."
BTW, those are real life creatures, if you were wondering. Look them up.
Victreebong Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2014
Hands down the most creative fan made Mega Evo I've seen! I really wish Game Freak would take up some other peoples' ideas (like yours) for their game additions. This is just too awesome! Ability ideas? Stats? Not really into that?...

This is a fake or not?
kirakinn Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Awesome concept awesomely executed!
Hyperagua Featured By Owner May 7, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Genius I love it!
egrizly Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2014
The thing I love about this design is that it looks like a genuine transformation instead of just having add-ons placed on a Pokémon and calling it mega
you know like what they did with Gardevoir having a dress and Aerodactyl having a bunch of black spikes.

I love this, I'm a parasect fan anyway :D

DreamChasingWindie Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2014  Student Digital Artist
The luminescent mushroom idea totally screams "Fairy." I love it!
ManiacalMew Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Extremely creative and well executed, the luminescent 'shrooms are a great touch! Love it :)
Ziliath01 Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2014

HardCoreCrocomire Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
personally i think this should be exclusive to a specific pokemon game! like how there are 2 mega charizards! I love it's design ^^
nmil2526 Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
best fake mega evolution I have seen!!
Bogdangor Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2014
Totally agree!
SketchMaster-N Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I like how you did the "Charizard X" effect. This is amazing. Good design choices.
Ironwolf09 Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2013
If Charizard got the color treatment, why not Parasect xP
Tapejara Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I... LOVE THIS THING!! I want to fav it twice!!

I mean come on! it's BLUE!!!
Daemare Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
I have to agree Parasect doesn't get enough props. I used to have it in my X party for battles and it was awesome after some Supertraining. If you get it on high Def, Sp. Def, and Speed stats, it can be a pretty good status pokemon. Plus ability of effect spore!
TheDilophoraptor Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, Just Go to game freak and own the Design area, Do it.
PitchBlackPheonix90 Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
This is absolutely brilliant.
Please send this to Nintendo ! It NEEDS to be real.

Not a big fan of parasect, but this is awesome! I really like how you chose to change the color and add smaller mushrooms =) It looks a little creepy with those white eyes ^^

Bummerdude Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Mega Evo or not, I'm totally digging its new style. Way to breathe new life into an old design!
Ironwolf09 Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2013
Thanks, I'm glad you like it
TheCharleyJay Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2013
I think Parasect has an excellent concept as well and I like that you gave it a mega evolution. The blue choice and the extra fungi really show off how brain-dead it has become for some reason. Nice work on the eyes.
