The long-awaited Mega Evolution has been lifted in Pokémon Go, and with the addition of the new Mega Raid Battles element, the traditional raid system has changed dramatically.

With the addition of the Mega Raids, the traditional 2-star and 4-star raids have been eliminated. The new raid tiers are now 1-star, 3-star, 5-star (legendary), and Mega.

In addition, a new speed bonus has been established for all raid battles at all tiers, the faster you win, the more you can get.

Mega Evolution in Pokémon Go is a system in which you collect Mega Energy, which is different for each Pokémon race, through Mega Raids and research, and consume a certain amount to unlock it.

The amount of Mega Energy required depends on the Pokémon, with the first time you unlock a lot of Mega Energy and the second and subsequent times you unlock less.

For example, in the case of a Charizard, it's 200 Mega Energy the first time, 50 the next time and so on.

The main way to obtain this Mega Energy is through the newly added Mega Raids.

New Mega Raids to earn Mega Energy

Mega Raid is a raid battle in which you fight against a Mega Evolved boss. In addition to the normal Raid Rewards, you can get Mega Energy for that Pokémon.

The amount of Mega Energy you can obtain depends on how quickly you beat the boss. In the case of the three Mega Kanto starters that have appeared since day one, it seems to be around 30 to 50.

This means that while you can earn the basic amount even if you're just barely within the time limit, you'll gain more in raids where there are many trainers, raids with many strong trainers, and raids where you participate with friends.

It's a system that tests the speed with which you can complete a raid, or the overall strength of participating trainers and Pokémon, which has never been particularly important, but the rules are increasingly advantageous in densely populated areas.

Regular raids are organized into three tiers

Along with the addition of Mega Raids, the traditional Raid system has been updated as well. The first and biggest change is the elimination of Tier 2 and 4 (2-star and 4-star) raids.

The former 2-star raids have been replaced by 1-star raids, and 4-star raids have been absorbed by 3-star raids. After the change, 1-star raids will still have the same difficulty and will get the rewards of 2-star raids, while 3-star raids will get the rewards of 4-star raids.

With this change, the new raid tiers will be 1-star, 3-star, 5-star (legendary), and Mega Raids.

In addition, a speed bonus has been added to the regular raids, with the faster you beat them, the more premier balls (white balls) you gain.
