Mega Glalie 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.

How to Get Mega Glalie

You cannot catch Glalie 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 Glalie.

Glalie can be caught with the following CP values:

  • 1764 – 1845 CP no weather boost
  • 2205 – 2307 CP boosted by Snow weather boost

In order to get Mega Glalie you will need 200 Mega Energy for the initial evolution, then 40 Mega Energy to evolve the same Glalie again in the future, or you can wait for the cooldown to progress, which depends on the level of your Mega Pokémon. Mega Energy can be obtained via Mega Glalie Raids, and once you have evolved Mega Glalie, you can earn 15 Mega Energy per candy while walking it as your buddy. You can walk any Snorunt or Glalie to earn Mega Energy, as long as you have previously evolved one to register it to your Mega Pokédex.

Shiny Glalie

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