Mega Evolutions come into play in Pokémon GO. These large, upgraded versions of Pokemon can give you an edge in battle, even if it's just a temporary evolution. If you're diving back into Pokémon GO and unfamiliar with these super-powered special Pokémon, we've got a full list of all the Mega Evolutions below. You'll also find more details on exactly how Mega Evolutions work - how to activate them and how to earn Mega Energy to unleash them. There are a ton of little wrinkles to this system, and Mega Evolutions are unique to only a few selected Pokemon so far.

How to Mega Evolve
Mega Evolution is a special and rare transformation that can make certain Pokémon even more powerful. You can't have 1 Pokemon Mega Evolve at any time. To see which Pokémon are eligible for Mega Evolution, look for the "Mega Evolve" button and a Mega Energy Counter on their summary page.
Pokemon requires Mega Energy to Mega Evolve. Mega Energy is earned based on a single Pokemon. If you gain Mega Energy with your Blastoise, that Mega Energy can only be used to Mega Evolve Blastoise. There are three ways to earn mega energy.
- Defeat Mega-Evolved Pokémon in Raid Battles
- Complete research tasks with Mega Energy rewards
- Walking Buddy Pokemon that have already Mega Evolved
Each Pokémon has a different Mega Energy requirement. But, after evolving a Pokémon once, it costs much less energy to evolve them again in the future. Mega Evolved Pokemon will remain in its temporary form for 8 hours, so activate Mega Evolution when you're ready to use it!
