Pokemon Go‘s newly added Mega Evolutions have proven to be quite controversial among players, due to the steep cost to Mega Evolve a Pokemon and the fact the resource needed to trigger the transformation–Mega Energy–can typically only be collected through Mega Raids. Developer Niantic has promised to adjust Mega Evolutions as a result, and the studio has now revealed some specific changes it’ll be implementing soon.
In a new blog post, Niantic revealed it will add a few more ways to obtain Mega Energy. In particular, players will be able to earn Mega Energy by walking with their Buddy Pokemon. The studio says it will also offer Mega Energy through additional Research tasks and “other gameplay,” and players will earn bonus Candy when they catch a monster that’s of the same type as their Mega-Evolved Pokemon.
Attention, Trainers! We’re making some changes to Mega Evolution and raids. Thank you for your feedback as we continue to update these features. Learn more: https://t.co/TpqHW8qfyu pic.twitter.com/yWC3bzzahD
