In-Depth Trivia Edit

  • It's new wings could possibly be a hint to the connection of the Lamassu, a half-man-half-bull creature from Mesopotamian mythology
    • Lammasu are thought to be guardians and protective spirits and sculptures of them are often placed at pallace entrances. This is reflected on Absol-Mega's new ability, Magic Bounce, which protects it from status moves and entree-hazards and reflects them back into the opponent
  • The wing and horn combo could also tie in to the Pegasus, but Pegasus are usually linked to things like wisdom, water, the sun, and poetry which, while awesome, don't really seem to link to Absol-Mega's design
