Pokémon GO is a game that has been downloaded over a billion time, was named “Best Mobile Game” in 2017 by the Game Developers Choice Awards and “Best App of the Year” in by TechCrunch. Maybe you played it but eventually deleted it or maybe you never stopped playing. Recently Niantic, the developers of Pokémon GO released their Mega Update. As the name implies, Mega Evolution is now in the game. Here’s a question though: How does it work and who can Mega Evolve? Well, allow me to explain.
Mega Evolution works a lot differently in Pokémon GO than it does in any of the main games. Instead of your Blastoise holding Blastoisite, you now have to give it Blastoise Mega Energy. If you have not Mega Evolved your Blastiose, or any other pokémon for the matter, it will cost you 200 Blastoise Mega Energy. Now, how do we get said energy? To get Mega Energy for Blastoise, Charizard, Venusaur, and Beedrill you must complete special missions in the month of September. The more you Mega Evolve a pokémon, the lower its Mega Energy costs. Now it IS pokémon specific. So I would recommend having your second or third strongest one to be Mega Evolved. Mega Evolution is very powerful, so there is also a time limit for how long a pokémon can be Mega Evolved. Also, there are new raids: Mega Raids. In those all participants face the same pokémon, however, it is Mega Evolved
That pretty much covers all the news involving this Mega Update. From how it works, who can Mega Evolve, to what you can expect to face in the Mega Raids
