'Pokémon Let's Go' Mega Evolution: When and Where to Get Mega Stones

Mega Evolutions were a major new feature in the Pokémon franchise. They made Pokémon that weren't that great in battle more viable while adding new wrinkles to competitive battling.

Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu and Pokémon Let's Go Eevee bring this feature back for players, but Mega Evolution works a bit differently than in the past. Normally, Mega Evolution can only be activated when a Pokémon is holding their respective Mega Stone. Hold items are non-existent in Pokémon Let's Go, so it's easier to activate Mega Evolutions.

In battle, players can simply press the Mega Evolution button on the screen to activate it. The Mega Evolved Pokémon will remain that way for the entirety of the battle, but will revert to its normal form once the fight is over.

Here's when you'll gain access to Mega Evolution in Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee and the location of all the Mega Stones.

WHEN DO YOU GET ACCESS TO MEGA EVOLUTION?

You get access to Mega Evolution pretty late in the Let's Go story. The Pokémon trainer Blue is seen throughout the game, but he appears once again after you win your 7th Gym Badge on Cinnabar Island.

This is when he explains Mega Evolution to you. He then gives you the Key Stone as well as the Mega Stones for Venusaur, Blastoise, and Charizard X and Y.
