For a full meta break down on Ampharos with Dragon Pulse, check out our analysis here. Mega Ampharos is one of only two Electric types with a Mega Evolution, the other being Manectric. While it may not be great in terms of being a Dragon type attacker, it can be a hefty Electric type for raids as a Mega.
