If this is true then Mega Gengar would be for Agatha, Mega Charizard for Blaine, Mega Alakazam for Sabrina and Mega Venasaur for Erika.

A game for "casuals" introducing new Megas?

Also, Hitmontop is a Gen II Pokémon.
I'm also only seeing Hitmontop on Riley's list- not sure where they got it from. The other two places I've seen it come up don't mention Hitmontop at all (and only that one mentions Mr. Mime). I could see the rest possibly being legit, but those two seem like add-ons.

But I highly doubt the TM list (if real) is for mega evos, anyhow. It seems unlikely that Jessie and James' signature pokemon would get megas. They're lucky the anime even gave them a z-move. I can't imagine that the eeveelutions would get megas either. Again, it seems more likely to be promotional material for the gym leaders and elite four. And possibly your rival, in the case of the eeveelutions.

But how would you give it more evolutions? A flamingo feels like a single stage pokemon, since there is nowhere you can really go with it.
My idea for a fakemon Flamingo starter was a base stage Water/Flying flamingo which evolves into a Water/Fighting bird with various aquatic bird inspirations (like Heron) which uses its long beak like a sword to battle.
I was going to say perhaps a bigger angrier flamingo but I really like your Heron Idea. Or even a Crane.

Why DON'T we have a Flamingo yet? There are a lot of designs and Pokemon that I'm surprised haven't been released yet. It did take 7 generations to get a koala after all.

I could go for a kangaroo- I know we have kangaskhan, but that's more just the concept of a marsupial than a proper roo. Where's them legs at, Game Freak? Gimme a hoppy pokemon that ain't a rabbit. >=/

Also dolphin is an obvious one that just needs to be done already. I could go for a dolphin that evolves into a killer whale.

Don't we already have a killer whale pokemon in Kyogre?
yeah but it may be nice to have one that isnt a legendary pokemon.
Agreed, I don't generally count legendaries because they're such a one-off thing. And besides, even if it's not really a killer whale, I think a non-legendary killer whale-sized porpoise would be great.

Maybe for the same reason we didn't get a wolf or a toucan Pokémon til Gen VII? I wonder why they sometimes choose rare animals like echidnas and marine angels, but leave out popular animals like the ones you mentioned. We don't even have a platypus Pokémon yet and that's perfect Pokémon material.

The grass starter of my region is based on a baby kangaroo. Vineroo is its name.

If we ever get an Australian region, I expect a dingo, kangaroo and koala.

Yeah, kangaroos can be pretty scary. I mean, they drown dogs, even if they aren't doing anything to them. Fighting/Dark looks like a perfect typing for a kangaroo Pokémon.

Can we please get a Fire Kangaroo starter?

but GameFreak will probably end up making it Fire/Fighting so I guess no, thanks.

I don't know, despite its name, I'm pretty sure psyduck is a platypus. It definitely looks closer to a platypus than to a duck. Could use a better platypus, though.

But at the same time, it lacks the beaver tail. Maybe it got cut in development.

Funny, I thought Psyduck had a smaller and shorter tail. I guess this is what happens when you never use certain Pokémon.
