Since Pokémon GO launched the Mega Evolution feature in late
August, Trainers have had the opportunity to collect Mega Energy by battling in
Mega Raids. The ultimate goal, of course, is to give yourself an edge in Raids
by Mega Evolving select Pokémon. However, certain aspects of Mega Evolution
required some fine-tuning, so we’ve implemented a few changes to the process.
To begin with, Pokémon that have previously Mega Evolved now
require less Mega Energy for subsequent Mega Evolutions. We’ve also increased
the amount of Mega Energy that Trainers receive for successfully completing a
Mega Raid. These changes should make it easier to continue Mega Evolving your Pokémon.
We’ll be implementing additional changes soon, including new
ways to earn Mega Energy outside of Raids. Soon, you’ll be able to earn Mega
Energy by walking with your buddy and by performing research tasks. Trainers
will also receive bonus Candy when catching a Pokémon that is the same type as
your Mega-Evolved Pokémon. In the meantime, keep earning that Mega Energy, keep
Mega Evolving, and keep on being the best Pokémon Trainer you can be.
