In Pokemon GO, the process of Mega Evolution is a little more arduous than it is in the mainline games. Where you only need a special Mega Stone in the main games, in Pokemon GO, you need to accumulate a lot of Mega Energy for a particular Pokemon in order to Mega Evolve it. If you haven’t gotten the opportunity to try out a Mega Evolved Pokemon before, a new set of Research Tasks will give you a good opportunity. Here are the Tasks and rewards for Pokemon GO’s A Mega Moment Special Research.
A Mega Moment is a new Special Research questline available to all Trainers level 5 or higher. Basically, it’s meant to give you a little taste of Mega Evolution without all of the legwork that usually goes into it. As usual, the Special Research questline features four pages of tasks, each with their own rewards and an overall reward at the end of each page. However, this questline also has a branching path that occurs after the first page is completed, which we’ll explain in a moment.
