Mega Evolution-themed event is coming in September. The event will go on for three weeks, from September 1 until September 28, 2020. Mega Raids, Gym Battles and more await.
There is a new resource in the world of Pokemon GO. The mysterious substance is called Mega Energy and it can be collected by completing Mega Raids - Raid Battles that feature Mega-Evolved Pokemon.
The amount of Mega Energy Trainers get from Raids will depend on how fast they can defeat a Raid Boss. You can Mega Evolve any of your Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, and Beedrill once you have enough of their corresponding Mega Energy.
You can have only one Mega-Evolved Pokemon at a time. If you Mega Evolve another Pokemon the first Mega-Evolved Pokemon will revert back to its original form. The Mega Evolved Pokemon will stay that way for a limited time so evolve wisely.
