Please discuss whether or not to move it on its talk page.

A Mega Ring (Japanese: メガリング Mega Ring) is a device that acts as a medium between a Pokémon Trainer and a Pokémon holding a Mega Stone in order to make them Mega Evolve. When the Mega Ring is activated, the Pokémon's corresponding Mega Stone reacts to it, starting the process. In order for the Mega Ring to work, it must have a Key Stone (Japanese: キーストーン Key Stone).

Possession of one Mega Ring is offered to the player and each of his or her friends, who have to pick the most deserving out of their group. The selection is quickly whittled down to two people, the player and Serena or Calem, depending on the gender of the player. Upon defeating Serena or Calem, the player has to defeat the Shalour Gym and then go to the top of the Tower of Mastery to retrieve the ring from Korrina.

After the player has beaten their rival in Kiloude City, Professor Sycamore will upgrade their Mega Ring at the Anistar Sundial by having the player touch the sundial. Once upgraded, the player can then find hidden Mega Stones around Kalos from 8:00 PM to 9:00 PM.

Variations

Several variations of the Mega Ring are known to exist, but each serves the same purpose.

  • Both Calem and Serena use the Mega Ring (Japanese: メガリング Mega Ring), which is a Key Stone embedded in a bracelet. They both wear it on their left wrist.
  • Korrina uses a Mega Glove (Japanese: メガグローブ Mega Glove), which is a Key Stone embedded in a left glove.
  • Lysandre uses a Mega Ring (Japanese: メガリング Mega Ring), which is a Key Stone embedded in a ring. He wears it on his middle finger on his left hand.
  • Diantha uses a Mega Charm (Japanese: メガチャーム Mega Charm), which is a Key Stone embedded inside a necklace. She wears it around her neck.
