Pokémon GO Mega evolution has been around for a while now, and recently a new mega evolution Pokémon is added to the game. The new mega evolution is none other than Mega Pidgeot. As discussed in the Pokémon GO September 2020 Schedule, certain tasks are to be completed by the trainers globally to unlock new Mega Pokémon, including Mega Pidgeot, Mega Houndoom, and Mega Gengar. Now that the first task is completed that was to complete two million mega raids by trainers globally, as a result, Mega Pidgeot will now appear in Pokémon GO Mega Raids. In this post, we will discuss more Mega Pidgeot in Pokémon GO and also know about its best counters, weakness, and more.
Mega Pidgeot in Pokémon GO
Mega Pidgeot is the newest addition in the Pokémon GO Mega lineup and has been unlocked recently after a global challenge has been completed by the trainers. Now that it is available, anyone can own a Mega Pidgeot in Pokémon GO with very little effort. We all know Pidgeot is the final evolved form of one of the most commonly available Pokémon, and almost every trainer must have a Pidgeot in their team. Now, to mega evolve a Pidgeot, one requires the Pidgeot Mega Energy that can be obtained through the Mega Pidgeot Raids. You get a certain amount of Mega Energy after defeating the Mega Raid Boss that you can later use to Mega Evolve the Pokémon that Mega Energy belongs to. There are other ways to get mega energy in Pokémon GO, such as completing the timed research tasks, etc. but those do not grant mega energy for every Pokémon, and Niantic is already working on more ways to get Mega Energy in Pokémon GO.
Until then, your best bet would be to participate in the Mega Raids and defeat the mega raid boss as quickly as possible to get some considerable amount of mega energy for that Pokémon, in our case Pidgeot. Now, let us know about how you can battle the Mega Pidgeot in the raid by looking at its weaknesses and the best counters.
