If that list is real, Mega Scizor is going to kill everything.

I agree it'll be frightening, but remember that you can only have one mega evo per team. Scizor already has a number of checks and counters, so unless it suddenly jumps up 70 base Speed points and doesn't have to rely on Bullet Punch, it'll still be manageable, I think. I mean, obviously anything could happen, not saying it couldn't be overpowered, but I think it'd take a huge boost in either Attack or Speed, or both, to make it broken.

I want Mega Poliwrath so it's not completely overshadowed by Politoed and Keldeo :<

MegaJynx and MegaBanette come to papa! although I do wish these were just "evolutions", not this weird mega thing. kind of sounds like something digimon would do.

So, regarding the Mega Pokémon, what Mega Pokémon are available? Will there be a Mega Pikachu?

Never was into Digimon in the slightest, but hearing people make the comparison so frequently is making me curious how form change, something that's been in Pokemon since FR/LG, is being compared to Digimon. Not that it's even necessarily a bad thing, but I mean... I don't get why now. They revert post-battle, and you can only use one per team, so... I don't understand. If someone could explain it to me, I'd honestly like to know.

Mmm im not the biggest digimon fan though I did use to watch the show, and IF my memory is correct (which to be honest, its probably not) im pretty sure digimon could "evolve" into megaforms, and then reconvert back intos original forms, though I think it might be because they lost the battle or ran out of data/energy. Im pretty sure one of the evolution stages in digimon (they name their various stages, because digmon can like evolve 4 or 5 times i think) is actually called "Mega Evolution" or something.

Oh, it's just the phrasing, I see. I agree, the terminology could have been much better, but I also think it's fitting since it's not quite evolution, nor is it quite form change. I have to say, I quite like the idea, after my initial hesitation. Putting self-imposed limitations on what a franchise can do will always lead to disappointment.

yeah, its pretty much just making fun of the name/concept. 
some digimon's perfect or ultimate forms look more or less like the adult form, but with armour/more arms/idk. so they use the name of the adult form plus a prefix... and a common one is "mega-". so yknow, megaseadramon is just seadramon but hyped up a bit, with some spikes and a different colour. 
sooo with these you can see the comparison... megablaziken is blaziken with added bells and whistles. 
 
obviously people have been saying "[new thing] looks like digimon" for a long time now, its got to be tradition. but the comparison this time around particularly amuses me. 
and for that reason alone i really hope that they keep the names... theres something fantastically banal about the "mega-" prefix... "yeah its a blaziken but its like a SUPER blaziken.. no no, MEGA." 
 
welp ill just sit here and will Mega Meganium into existence. 
 
(also yes more jynx, there was that fake jynx evo going around a while back and gdi she needs one because i say so. and also because of electabuzz and magmortar).

Yeah this list is suspect to me.  It's possible the Blaziken trademark was already bought or something.  Venusaur also doesn't have one.  I'll find the article if you remind me tomorrow

I also find it odd how 5th gen isn't even touched upon.

This is probably way too early for me to speak on this, and before anyone flips out about it - this is some really abstract speculation built on nothing but gut feeling but...

I wouldn't honestly be surprised if Gen V was largely forgotten. I feel as though it was trying so hard to be a 'reboot gen' that they just ended up creating a Gen I clone (only different). I do have a feeling that in both plot/Pokemon/characters we'll see Gen V almost entirely forgotten and Pokemon will continue on. Weird huh? It might not happen though, of course. It's just a personal inkling I have right now.

In digimon games there was an item called a digivolution disk, which basically evolved your digimon to its mega form for one turn, it attacked, then reverted to its ordinary form.

Aside from that, it's pretty much what ores have said
