Mega Gardevoir Raid Guide

Gardevoir (Mega)

Mega Gardevoir is a Psychic and Fairy type Mega Raid boss. Best Mega Gardevoir raid counters include powerful Ghost, Poison and Steel types, with a mixed range of different counters available to help you defeat it.

Depending on your levels and counters, we would recommend 3-5 trainers who are high level, and more if you don’t have optimal teams. This guide will tell you how to beat this elegant Mega, as well as its optimal stats, moves and CP range.


Mega Gardevoir Counters

Since Shadow Pokémon are extremely expensive to power up and require specific events to remove Frustration with a Charge TM, they will NOT be listed as raid counters in this article. That being said, if you have the shadow form of a listed raid counter Pokémon powered up and TMed, use it.

Let’s check out the top raid counters for Mega Gardevoir:

How to Get Mega Gardevoir

You cannot catch Gardevoir in its mega evolved form from the raid. The mega raid boss is always catchable in its base form and as such, the CP ranges are for a regular Gardevoir.

Gardevoir can be caught with the following CP values:

  • 1688 – 1767 CP no weather boost
  • 2110 – 2209 CP boosted by Windy and Cloudy weather boost

In order to get Mega Gardevoir you will need 200 Mega Energy for the initial evolution, then 40 Mega Energy to evolve the same Gardevoir again in the future. If you wait for their ‘cooldown’ period to end, Mega Evolution is free. This cooldown period is shorter the higher mega level your Mega Pokémon is. Mega Energy can be obtained via Mega Gardevoir Raids, and once you have evolved Mega Gardevoir, you can earn 5 Mega Energy per candy while walking it as your buddy. You can walk any Ralts, Kirlia or Gardevoir to earn Mega Energy, as long as you have previously evolved one to register it to your Mega Pokédex. This may change when Mega Gallade is also released!

Shiny Gardevoir

Like all Mega Raid Bosses, you can catch the shiny version of Gardevoir from a raid.
