Battle Mega-Evolved Pokémon in the Next Pokémon Go Battle Day
Pokemon Go has a new Battle Day event on the way, this time with an exciting limited-time addition. For the first time, Trainers will be able to use Mega-Evolved Pokémon in Master League battles as part of Go Battle Day on Sunday, May 29.
The new addition to Pokemon Go’s PVP Battle League is designed as a celebration of the recent changes made to the mobile game’s Mega Evolution system, which added Mega Levels and made it easier to Mega Evolve Pokemon. While Mega Evolved Pokémon could already be deployed to battle in raids and gyms, this is the first time they will be able to be used in PVP battles.
Mega Evolved Pokémon will only be able to be deployed in Master League battles, and Trainers will need to remember to Mega Evolve their chosen Pokémon before the battle begins. The feature will only be available for 24 hours during Go Battle Day, so Trainers will want to make the most of it.
In addition to this addition to the Master League, across all leagues, the number of sets Trainers can play during the day will increase from five to 20, for a total of 100 battles. Players will also receive 4x Stardust when they win. As an added bonus, trainers who don’t already own the Gladion’s Pants cosmetic item will unlock it by completing an outfit at any rank during Go Battle Day.
