Just want to clarify this list is based on best MEGA’S to max out for candy/xl gains. There are alot of strong raid attacking megas low on the list because maxing out a mega doesn’t do much for it raid attacking wise. The whole point of maxing mégas is so you get more candy/xl
Detailed explanation | BEST MEGA POKEMON TO LEVEL UP in POKÉMON GO!
After this update, I’m actually SO excited to go through and max Pokémon for Mega evolutions! Thanks for the list Daxi, it’ll help me a lot when it comes to hunting high IVs of each Pokémon and prioritising stardust.
A note on mega steelux. You can use it with the meltan box, which candy wise isnt that exciting, but its well worth it for the extra bit of XP.
Loving this mega evolution update. I’m actually excited to mega evolve my Pokémon now. So much better than hoarding my energy and never wanting to evolve because of how hard the energy was to get before.
I have to disagree about slowbro. Imo mega Gyarados covers the dark type which is more relevant than psychic type for raids. Also, walking with gyrados gives 5 mega energy for each km. This is still a great feature to be able to remove cooldown hurting less the resources
You do have a point for the 5km. But also gyarados is now a 300 energy base which in general makes it more expensive. also not talking about raids more about candy collection. But thanks for sharing
got it. That makes sense since there are more psychic pokemon types in the wild than dark types generally speaking (not considering nests and events). But this leads me to an interesting question: which pokemon would you mega evolve in a raid hour? A counter type pokemon to knock out faster or a pokemon of the same type for the candys (xl also)? The new mega evolve system kinda switch my mindset when it comes to raids now.
Let’s hear the opinions of even more gamers around the world!

To cheapen cost
I don’t think that these lists would be all that similar.
Mega Altaria is great for Dragon raids as boosts both Dragon and Fairy and it’s Mega Bonus for all other attackers could see it help defeat a dragon raid boss faster than even a Mega Rayquaza and would get better the more trainers in the raid.
I would suggest to work on them all, mega evolve appropriately for events and when you raid as possible.
I say you should consider each Mega pkmn’s attack, defense, stamina, CP, HP stats, and moves when ranking. For example, Mega Blastoise has higher attack than Mega Slowbro. So even if Mega Blastoise does not have the multiple typings it can be ranked 1 tier higher (optional tier) because it has better usage as a raider, gym attacker, etc…
In terms of moves both share water gun as a fast move but Mega Blastoise has Water Pump and Hydro Cannon two very powerful charge moves which are very useful for raids, gym battles, etc. So even though Mega Slowbro has the advantage in terms of catching pkmn, due to its dual type, it lacks the attack stats and move set that Mega Blastoise has in terms of raiding, rocket battles and gym battles.
Also perhaps a letter grade system would be more appropriate since each pkmn has strengths and weaknesses. I don’t take offense to anyone calling a pkmn “trash” it’s just more reasonable to give a letter grade and then state why this pkmn deserves this grade, etc.
In conclusion, your videos are informative and it helps to hear a veteran player’s perspective. I look forward to hearing more about mega pkmn in the near future as I know more will be released in the very near future. I also am very interested in mega pkmn and do use them often so hearing about it from a free to play players’ perspectives is always welcomed.
I am excited w the update but do feel set back with my personal collection
So for my first tiers, i’d put Charizard Y, Blastoise, Venusaur, Manetric, maybe houndoom and gengar
In the useful, I’d put Aerodactyl, Abamasnow, Lapunny, maybe Steelix, Altaria or Ampharos for that dragon bonus
The rest would be trash for me.
Also i am not working one at a time. With the tasks and to make best buddies, I have cumulated a lot of venusaur, blastoise, charizard, beedrill and pidgeot mega energy so i will be using it everyday to get to the max level in 30 days at least for those ones.
Max First: Gengar, Abomasnow, Beedrill, Lopunny, Aerodactyl, Steelix, Altaria, Manectric, Slowbro, Houndoom.
The first thing to look at here is being th only pokemon of their respective Type released so far (Gengar for Ghost, Abomasnow for Ice, Beedrill for Bug, Lopunny for Fighting, Aerodactyl for Rock, Steelix for Steel and Ground, Altaria for Fairy).
After these, due to dual typing of the mentioned, only 5 types remain uncovered (Electric, Water, Psychic, Fire, Dark), all of which can be covered by 100 Energy evolutions (Manectric for Electric, Slowbro for Water/Psychic, Houndoom for Dark/Fire).
These are, in theory, the least amount of pokemon for full type coverage, and the only expensive one is Altaria.
Grabbing a lvl 3 Charizard is the next step towards optimizing this group. It’s another dragon, costs less than Altaria, and you get a lot of free Mega Charizard energy all the time.
Every other Mega is a luxury in my opinion. They are the same cost or more expensive to evolve than anything listed above. The only reason to have them is for better raiding.
Stuck on part 8 of Let’s Go Meltan. Omanyte, Kabuto, Lileep, Anorith and Aerodactyl spawned quite a lot back when I was in parts 2, 3 and in February, but I haven’t seen any since then.
