Pokémon GO: Mega Venusaur & Mega Evolution Updates

Niantic has announced some changes coming to Pokémon GO's Mega Evolutions. First Venusaur will be leaving Mega Raids starting October 23rd and be replaced with Mega Gengar for the Halloween Event. Until then, Mega Venusaur will be appearing more frequently in Mega Raids and a Field and Timed Research will be added in November to earn more Mega Venusaur Candy.

Niantic is also adding new features in early November to the Mega Evolution feature. Trainers will be able to earn Mega Energy by walking with your Buddy Pokémon if you have previously Mega Evolved a Pokémon in your Buddy Pokémon’s Evolutionary line. Trainers can earn additional Candies when you have an active Mega-Evolved Pokémon and you catch a Pokémon that shares a type with your Mega-Evolved Pokémon. Finally you will be able to see Trainers on your friends list who currently have a Mega-Evolved Pokémon.
