A Mega Ring (Japanese: メガリング Mega Ring) is a Key Item introduced in Generation VI. It is a Key Stone accessory that enables Mega Evolution.
In the core series games
At the Tower of Mastery, Gurkinn offers a single Mega Ring to the player and their friends, but due to only having a single Mega Ring to give away, requests that they decide among themselves who should receive it. Of the group, only the player and Serena/Calem are interested in receiving it, so the two battle to decide who should receive it. Upon defeating Serena/Calem, the player must obtain the Rumble Badge at the Shalour Gym and then go to the top of the Tower of Mastery to receive the ring from Korrina.
After the player has defeated their rival in Kiloude City once, Professor Sycamore will upgrade the player's 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.
