Mega Energy (Japanese: メガエナジー Mega Energy) is a type of currency in Pokémon GO that can be used to induce temporary Mega Evolution in Pokémon. It comes in multiple types, each corresponding to a specific evolution family. Unlike Mega Stones (which cause Mega Evolution in other media), Mega Energy can be used without a Key Stone.
A certain amount of Mega Energy is required to cause a corresponding Pokémon to undergo Mega Evolution. After a Pokémon has Mega Evolved once, it will enter a rest period. Pokémon can Mega Evolve again at no cost after waiting out a rest period since its last Mega Evolution. The Pokémon can still Mega Evolve during the rest period by using Mega Energy at a reduced cost, which also decreases proportionally with the time remaining in the rest period.
If the Pokémon is later traded, its Mega Level is reset, and it would cost the full amount again to Mega Evolve.
The player can have a maximum of 9,999 of each Mega Energy at a time (2,000 prior to April 28, 2022, and 999 prior to October 15, 2020).
Mega Energy is received by completing Mega Raids—Raid Battles with Mega-Evolved Pokémon as Bosses. These corresponding to the Boss that was defeated, the amount ranging from 150 to 250 depending on how quickly the players completed the Raid.
Mega Energy for certain Pokémon may also be received by completing certain Research tasks.
As of November 1, 2020, Mega Energy will be found by a Buddy Pokémon if the player has previously Mega Evolved a Pokémon in the same evolution family and feeds it Candy. The amount that the Pokémon finds is directly proportional to its Buddy distance, at a rate of 5 per 1 km.
