These are some of the best Mega Pokemon in Pokemon GO. In descending order, Mega Gengar is the most powerful Mega Pokemon in Pokemon GO currently, so getting your hands on one is important. The second-best Mega Pokemon is Mega Charizard Y. Almost all of these Pokemon have been accessible in one form or another, so keep your eye out for when you have a chance to get a Mega Pokemon.

How to Get Mega Pokemon

There is only one way to get Mega Pokemon in Pokemon GO: through Mega evolution. Similar to the Five-Star Raid, the Mega Raid features a different Mega Pokemon that you and your friends can take on. Once you have defeated the Mega Pokemon and captured it, the Pokemon will revert back to its normal form, which means you’ll need to earn a Mega Pokemon the hard way. You will need to defeat the Mega Pokemon multiple times to get Mega Energy which is required to Mega evolve your Pokemon. Most Pokemon need 200 Mega Energy to Mega evolve.

Not every Pokemon can be Mega evolved in Pokemon GO. Oftentimes, Timed and Special Research will give Mega Energy as rewards for completing tasks, so keep an eye out for those opportunities. And that is everything you need to know about the best Mega Pokemon in Pokemon GO. We cover all things Pokemon GO like new shiny Pokemon or Community Day events coming up.
