A Mega Moment (3/4)

Story

Professor Willow

Welcome back, %PLAYERNAME%! Now that we’re fully warmed up, let’s tuck into our research on Mega Evolution.

Some theorize that a strong bond between a Trainer and a Pokémon is the key to Mega Evolution. We’ve also seen that Mega Energy can play a role. However, I noticed recently that if you Mega Evolve your Pokémon once using Mega Energy, you won’t need to use Mega Energy to Mega Evolve that Pokémon again.

Let’s Mega Evolve Venusaur and see if that’s true for ourselves, %PLAYERNAME%!

Task Reward
Earn 5 hearts with your buddy Mega Candy icon 50x Mega Candy
Power up Pokémon 5 times Mega Candy icon 50x Mega Candy
Mega evolve a Charizard / Venusaur / Blastoise Charge TM icon 1x Charge TM
