Additional info, from the Pokemon website: when mega evolved, Venusaur's ability becomes "Thick Fat," which gives it protection against fire and ice moves.When Charizard mega evolves, its special attack stat grows, and its ability changes to "Drought"—which increases fire-type moves. Finally, when Blastoise mega evolves, it gains the "Mega Launcher" ability, and that makes moves such as water pulse and dark pulse become stronger.

Mega Charizard is still Fire / Flying.

He's still 4X weak to Rock. GameFreak, you finally had a chance to fix things. He could be Fire / Dragon, like he always should've been.

But instead, he's STILL FOUR TIMES WEAK TO ROCK.
