Pokémon GO Mega Evolution Update is one of the most awaited things in the game. And, great news for all the Pokémon GO trainers is that we have brought you the early details of the Pokemon GO Mega Evolution Update. It is finally happening, and the Mega Evolution is coming to the game very soon. This new mechanic could be a game-changer depending upon how this will be implemented in the game. Trainers will be able to use the mega evolved Pokémon in raids, and might as well mega evolve in the GO Battle League to battle other trainers. We are still not sure how the new feature would affect the game, but the Mega Evolution update would surely change a lot of things in Pokémon GO. In this article, we will discuss the Pokémon GO Mega Evolution Update, Release date, what Pokémon will be able to mega evolve, and other information related to the same.
What is Pokémon GO Mega Evolution
Pokémon GO Mega Evolution is an ability of certain species of Pokémon to evolve past their final form for a limited time. In simpler words, a Pokémon that is capable of mega evolution evolve into its mega form to become more powerful for some amount of time, until the battle lasts. The Mega Evolution was introduced the Pokémon X and Y and uncover the hidden ability of the Pokémon to mega evolve. Although, a Pokémon which is capable of Mega Evolution cannot mega evolve on their own, but will need a Mega Stone with the Pokémon, and a Key Stone with the trainer. Also, the mega stone for each Pokémon varies with the species and, each Pokémon requires a distinct set of Mega Stone and Key Stone to undergo mega evolution and unleash the hidden power.
In Pokémon GO, rumors suggest that there would be Mega Bracelets, Z-Ring, or Mega Ring that would allow the trainers to mega evolve their Pokémon during a battle. Although, what are the level requirements for Mega Evolution, how do we mega evolve the Pokémon, any other similar questions are yet to be answered, and will be posted here upon confirmation.
Pokémon GO Mega Evolution Trailer
A couple of months ago, in June, the official Pokémon GO YouTube channel released the Pokémon GO Mega Evolution Trailer with the caption stating, “Get Ready for Mega Evolution in Pokémon GO!”. If you have not watched the trailer yet, you can watch it right from the official YouTube video embedded below.
List of Pokémon that will Mega Evolve
Pokémon GO Mega Evolution is no doubt would change the game to a certain extent, and allow the trainers to experiment with the mega evolution ability of their Pokémon. But, there one doubt among all of the Pokémon GO trainers that is, will the existing Pokémon be capable of Mega Evolution? We are not yet sure about this, and there are possibilities that some of the current Pokémon might be able to mega evolve depending upon their stats, and IV. But again, we are still not sure about this and, we can only wait until any new information about the mega evolution surfaces.
As per the rumors, there would be a total of 46 different species of Pokémon that would be capable of Mega Evolution. The list is not an official release, but there are very many chances that these 46 Pokémon would be capable of Mega Evolution in the earlier stages of the update, which could be followed by the addition of more Pokémon on the Mega Evolution list in the future.
|Pokémon||Mega Stone Symbol||Mega Stone Name|
|Charizard X||Charizardite X|
|Charizard Y||Charizardite Y|
|Mewtwo X||Mewtwonite X|
|Mewtwo Y||Mewtwonite Y|
All these Pokémon that are listed above would be capable of Mega Evolution in Pokémon GO. Although, as already stated that the list is not final and there are some chances that some Pokémon might be added or removed from this list. Whatever changes would be made to this list, we will update it here.
Pokémon GO Primal Reversion
Pokémon GO Mega Evolution update might as well make the popular, two out of three weather trio Groudon and Kyogre capable of mega evolving. But, unlike the regular Pokémon that requires the Mega Stone and Keystone to mega evolve the weather trio does not need any mega or keystone. Rather, the Primal Reversion takes place in the presence of orbs. One thing that makes the Primal Reversion different from Mega Evolution is that Groudon and Kyogre can go through primal reversion multiple times during the same battle. Although, apart from this, the rest of the process is quite similar to mega evolution, and we have to see if the weather trio will be capable of mega evolving or not.
Pokémon GO Mega Evolution Release Date
All the Pokémon GO trainers have been waiting for the Pokémon GO Mega Evolution update since the official trailer was posted on YouTube a couple of months ago. But, apart from the trailer, there is no official announcement of the release date for the mega evolution update. If any official announcements will be made, we will be posting it on our website.
Pokémon GO Mega Evolution will be quite a significant update in the game, and also one of the biggest update. This update would change many aspects of the game and make trainers rethink about their PvP and PvE strategies. With as much as 46 different Pokémon capable of mega evolution, all the trainers sure will have to collect the Mega Stones and Key Stones for each capable Pokémon. There are other aspects of the update which are still not clear such as the total number of capable mega evolution Pokémon a trainer can have if the current Pokémon would be capable of Mega evolution or not, and other similar questions that can only be unveiled in coming days.
