The Pokémon Go devs are listening.

Based on community feedback, Niantic has announced a series of changes to Pokémon Go’s Mega Evolutions.

Changes to Pokémon Go’s Mega Evolutions

Some of these have already gone into effect as of Thursday, September 3; others are in the works for the near future.

Here’s what has already been changed:

  • The Mega Energy requirement to Mega Evolve a Pokémon that has already Mega Evolved before has decreased
  • The amount of Mega Energy that Trainers receive from winning Mega Raids has increased

The following changes are still in development:

  • Walking with your buddy to earn Mega Energy
  • More ways to earn Mega Energy through research tasks and other gameplay
  • Earning bonus Candy when catching Pokémon that share a type with your Mega-Evolved Pokémon

Mega Evolutions arrived in Pokémon Go late last month.

The game is free to play on Android and iOS devices.
