GO Fest 2023 Mega Rayquaza Special Research (London and Osaka)

Posted in

Mega Rayquaza is debuting at Pokémon GO Fest 2023 London and Osaka! In order to unlock Mega Rayquaza, players need to obtain a Rayquaza with the special move called Dragon Ascent, as only Rayquaza that knows this move can Mega Evolve.

In order to obtain Rayquaza with Dragon Ascent, GO Fest 2023 visitors first need to obtain Meteorites, a new item that allows Rayquaza to learn Dragon Ascent.

Teach Rayquaza Dragon Ascent to Mega Evolve!

Unlike other Mega-Evolving Pokémon, Rayquaza can’t Mega Evolve with Mega Energy alone. Trainers hoping to Mega Evolve their Rayquaza will need to teach it the Charged Attack Dragon Ascent first!

Dragon Ascent

  • Flying-type move
  • Dragon Ascent can only be learned by using a new item: Meteorites!
  • Meteorites have been discovered in Pokémon GO, and it seems like they have some connection to Rayquaza—use one to help Rayquaza’s power ascend to new heights!
  • You’ll be able to use a Meteorite to teach the Charged Attack Dragon Ascent to Rayquaza. You can collect Meteorites by completing certain research tasks during GO Fest 2023.
