Evolutions have been an integral part of the Pokemon franchise since its inception. The process allows Pokemon to deal more damage and bring some new moves to the table. However, if you’re bored of standard evolutions, make sure to use Mega Energy and access Mega Evolutions in Pokemon Go.

Mega Evolutions work like evolutions, but as the name suggests, they’re much more powerful. You can evolve almost every Pokemon in the game, but only a handful are eligible for Mega Evolutions.

Pokemon usually require candies and items like Metal Coat and Sinnoh Stones for evolution, but mega evolutions work with a unique item called Mega Energy.

Here’s a guide on mega evolutions and Mega Energy in Pokemon Go.

How to obtain Mega Energy in Pokemon Go

Here’s a list of the best sources of Mega Energy in Pokemon Go:

  • Defeating the specific Pokemon in Mega Raids. For instance, defeating Mega Gangar in a five-star Mega Raid will give you Gengar’s Mega Energy.
  • Your Buddy Pokemon collects 5 Mega Energy/km of walking if it belongs to a previously mega-evolved Pokemon’s evolutionary line. In other words, if you have a Mega Blastoise registered in your Pokedex, Blastoise, Wartortle, and Squirtle can collect Mega Energy for you as buddies.
  • Completing certain research tasks. Check out your available tasks from the binocular icon on the bottom-right of the screen and look for the ones that grant Mega Energy for certain Pokemon.

The amount of Mega Energy from Mega Raids in Pokemon Go depends on the time you take to end the battle. The faster you win the raid, the more Mega Energy you get.

How to use Mega Energy in Pokemon Go

Mega Energy is a consumable resource in Pokemon Go like candies. This means that Pokemon require a fixed amount of Mega Energy to evolve and it is consumed when players initiate the Mega Evolution.

How do Mega Evolutions work in Pokemon Go

Mega Evolution is a temporary effect that Pokemon can get in Pokemon Go through Mega Energy. A Pokemon remains in its Mega-Evolved form for eight hours and then returns to its normal evolutionary stage. This is followed by a rest period during which you cannot mega evolve the Pokemon again.

You only need to spend Mega Energy to Mega Evolve a Pokemon for the first time. After that, you need to wait until their rest period is over or you can spend additional Mega Energy to repeat a Mega Evolution even when the Pokemon is resting.

There are three levels of Mega-Evolutions in Pokemon Go – Base, High, and Max. You reach these levels by Mega-Evolving a specific Pokemon once, seven times, and 30 times, respectively. With each level, the rest period of the Pokemon decreases and they gain other attributes like Catch XP Bonus, XL Candy Chance, and Boosted Ally Attacks, among others.
