How to improve: 152-153-154, Chikorita-Bayleef-Meganium
1.Stats: Should Meganium get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?
Meganium has 525 BST, which is the lowest bound for starter evolutions. Highest bound is 535, which belongs to Swampert. Grass starters currently have the highest at 530, which belongs to Chesnaught and Sceptile.
Megainum's BST fits in with Venusaur and Torterra however, so any stat update shouldn't be expected, as any major update cannot be higher than +10.
Instead, Meganium can obtain a Mega Evolution like all starters. The stat distribution of this would likely be fairly even, it would be an "evolution" of Meganium with even +20 stats on all stats except HP.
2.Should Meganium get more abilities?
Ignoring the fact that starters have only two abilities, Meganium's current stats are insufficient for the stuff it wishes to accomplish. Literally anything else would be better than its current stock, so let's go through possibilities:
1. Effect Spore: Meganium's decent physical defense means it can actually take a lot of hits. This makes Effect Spore a viable ability, especially since Chikorita gets major spore and powder moves.
2.Healer: Meganium-line is based off a herbalist, so this ability makes sense. Sadly, it would only work on doubles.
3.Chlorophyll: A very good but situational ability, Meganium does not get much use from this ability as it doesn't have good stat raising moves, offensive movepool or status moves. If it were to get Sleep Powder, this would be a good ability however.
4.Solar Power: Same as above, Meganium needs a major movepool update to use this.
5.Flower Veil: A very good ability that effectively works as a better Shell Armor, this ability works well with Meganium's defense.
6.Harvest: Same as above.
7.Aromatic Mist: Possibly the best ability for this line, this basically allows Meganium to be a strong annoyer Pokémon and be a good doubles partner. Most specifically, it makes it a devastating SubSeeder and ParaSwagger.
8.Natural Cure: Meganium generally works as a stall Pokémon than a switchin Pokémon, but this ability is still good regardless.
9.Regenerator: Same as above.
10.Mold Breaker: An odd choice, but it works well with Sap Sipper.
11.Gluttony: Another odd choice, and less good compared to Harvest.
3. Should Meganium get more moves?
YES. Here are some options:
1. Earth Power: It is a Grass-type that gets Ancient Power.
2.Dragon moves: It is a sauropod.
3. Weather Ball: It has a weather ability.
4. Slashing moves: It gets basic slashing moves and Psychic-type status moves.
5.Psychic and Fairy moves: Psychic for its Psychic support moves, Fairy for its overall feminine design and flower.
6.Poison moves: It gets only Poison Powder for now.
7.Better physical Grass moves: Specifically Leaf Blade and Power Whip as updates to its existing moves Razor Leaf and Vine Whip.
8.SLEEP POWDER:A recurring move in TCG, this is exactly what Meganium needs to reach its current defensive potential. Rest are for its alternate sets generally.
4.What additional typing Meganium can have?
Fairy, Psychic, Poison and Dragon are the obvious ones. Normal and Ground can work with appropriate designs, but they would need some more work.
Meganium needs an additional typing to be not as laughably bad as it is now, even if it can work with regular Grass-type if it gets a lot of options, which it currently doesn't have.
