Niantic has announced they will be making a number of adjustments to how Mega Evolution works in Pokemon GO.
These changes were made in response to player feedback about the original Mega Evolution system, of which much of it was related to the “Mega Energy” mechanic that it uses. You can check out a summary of the changes below, via Pokemongolive:
After listening to your feedback, we have made the following changes to Mega Evolution.
The Mega Energy requirement to Mega Evolve a Pokémon that has already Mega Evolved before has decreased.
The amount of Mega Energy that Trainers receive from winning Mega Raids has increased.
Here are a few adjustments that we’re working on implementing.
- Walking with your buddy to earn Mega Energy
- More ways to earn Mega Energy through research tasks and other gameplay
- Earning bonus Candy when catching Pokémon that share a type with your Mega-Evolved Pokémon
Thank you for your feedback as we continue to update this feature. Stay tuned—we’ll share more information on the ongoing development process.
