Trainers, the first event in December 2022 goes live on December 3, featuring Mega Sceptile, Mega Blaziken, and Mega Swampert in Mega Raids and their shiny forms.
During the Season of Mythical Wishes, a new Mega Evolution will appear in Mega Raids. You already know this, but Mega Raids can be easily found in either the Map View or Nearby Screen, where they are “signaled” through the Mega icon.
Joining a Mega Raid battle is the same as entering a normal One. After joining a Mega Raid, and successfully defeating a Mega Raid Boss, you will get rewards such as Mega Energy, and of course, an encounter with the Mega Raid Boss you went up against. As for the amount of Mega Energy, this is tied up with the time it takes you to take down the Mega Raid Boss. This means that the faster you defeat it, the bigger number of Mega Energy you will get.
To make things spicier, there are two types of Mega Raids in Pokemon Go: an ordinary Mega Raid and a Mega Legendary Raid.
A Mega Raid is a piece of cake if you have the right set of Pokemon, but with the Mega Legendary Raid, you will need a lot of help to defeat that Legendary Beast. Arrange a team with great Pokemon, and make sure to Mega Evolve a Pokemon that is a member of your Mega Raid team.
The new Hoenn Mega Raid Day brings three new Mega Evolutions in Raids, Mega Sceptile, Mega Blaziken, and Mega Swampert. The event runs from 2-5 PM local time on November 3, 2022. Mega Sceptile, Mega Blaziken, and Mega Swampert can be shiny.
Sceptile caught during this event will know the Charged Attack Frenzy Plant. Blaziken caught during this event will know the Charged Attack Blast Burn. Swampert caught during this event will know the Charged Attack Hydro Cannon.
You can receive up to five additional free Raid Passes from spinning Gym Photo Discs during the event.
