Pokemon Go Mega Evolution to get several new features that fans have been waiting for for a long time. Know how Pokemon Go will change for you.
Pokemon Go Mega Evolution is ready for a much-needed change! Several recent datamines of in-game files suggest that the Pokemon Go Mega Evolution, the system that allows players to temporarily upgrade the fully evolved pocket monsters, looks all set to get a major overhaul. The recent datamine from the backend explorers PokeMiners suggests that Pokemon Go will get a new leveling system in an upcoming update. It further mentions that the players will soon be able to upgrade their Pokemon’s temporary evolutions by unlocking additional perks, reduced skill cooldowns, a series of levels, and extra candy.
Since its debut in 2020, the Mega Evolution system in Pokemon Go has been a point of contention for fans of the mobile game. At this point, players must collect enough Mega Energy to activate one of the limited-time evolutions in the game, while earning the consumables by participating in Raid Battles with the selected Pokemon. The raids not only require the participation of other players, but they also yield only a small sum of mega energy. In order to collect enough resources to improve your Pokemon, you have to perform a lot of raids. Your Pokemon will reward you with Mega Energy, but only after you develop them through raids. Plus, Mega Evolutions only last a few hours.
Pokemon Go expected changes
Now, according to Pokemon Go’s datamine, a free mega-evolution icon was also found in the datamine, suggesting that you can occasionally upgrade your Pokemon to a new evolutionary tier for free without having to perform raids. Not only that, a leveling system can make the benefits of such mega-evolutions more sustainable, as well as the rewards for acquiring them. The datamine suggests a revision of the much-maligned mechanic is in the works, which will be good news for Pokemon Go fans disappointed with the existing system.
Keep in mind, though, that Pokemon Go creator Niantic has not officially acknowledged these upcoming changes to Pokemon Go’s Mega Evolutions. That means the said change may or may not happen in the next Pokemon Go upgrade.
Well, this all sounds good, but there’s no word from the developers so far. So you will have to wait for the official announcement to know if you will get these benefits.
