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. Still, if you want even bigger and badder evolutions for Blastoise, Charizard, and many more, here's how to do it.

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 Pok√©mon 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!

NOTE: Mega Evolution Pokemon can change type. Capturing a Mega Evolved Pokémon in Mega Raid Battles will return that Pokémon to its normal form.
