Mega Level/Mega Evolved Pokemon Bonuses

All of the bonuses related to Mega Levels and Mega Evolutions as an amalgamation are:

  • Of course, you will also even get increased experience points for catching the same Pokemon type as your Mega Evolved Pokemon once again.
  • The Pokemon’s Rest period will decrease for you as the Mega Level increases for them.
  • When in a Raid or Gym Battle with your Mega Evolved Pokemon and attacking with them, then other Trainer’s Pokemon will deal more damage to your pokemon and the attacks will also deal extra damage if they are the same type as your own Mega Evolved Pokemon.

These bonuses will not be all applied at once for each Mega Evolved Pokemon so it will be some RNG whether you get the bonus you are looking for.
