Community Note: Updates to Mega Evolution

Pokémon GO

Trainers,

After listening to your feedback, we have made the following changes to Mega Evolution.

  • The Mega Energy requirement to Mega Evolve a Pokémon that has already Mega Evolved before has decreased.
  • The amount of Mega Energy that Trainers receive from winning Mega Raids has increased.

Here are a few adjustments that we’re working on implementing.

  • Walking with your buddy to earn Mega Energy
  • More ways to earn Mega Energy through research tasks and other gameplay
  • Earning bonus Candy when catching Pokémon that share a type with your Mega-Evolved Pokémon

Thank you for your feedback as we continue to update this feature. Stay tuned—we’ll share more information on the ongoing development process.
