Main Walkthrough

A central mechanic for a big chunk of the story of Pokémon X and Y, Mega Evolution allows your Pokémon to evolve into new, more powerful forms for the duration of a battle. In order to trigger Mega Evolution the Pokémon must be holding a Mega Stone, and the Mega Stones for each of the eligible Pokémon species are spread throughout Kalos. You'll need to do a lot of searching to find them all.

This guide will help you track down all of the Mega Stones in Pokémon X and Y. It is not possible to get every Mega Stone in either version of the game, so you'll need to attach Mega Stones to Pokémon and trade them to your current game to earn get a full set.

Main Game Mega Stones
  • Abomasite: At the end of your trip through the Frost Cavern you'll meet an Abomasnow that's being hassled by Team Flare. Drive off the Grunts, then speak to the Abomasnow to receive the Abomasite.
  • Aerodactylite: Visit the Fossil Lab in Ambrette Town after visiting Glittering Cave for the first time. A Scientist on the right side of the Fossil Lab will give you the Aerodactylite. You can also use the Fossil Lab to turn an Old Amber from Glittering Cave into an Aerodactyl, allowing you to make early use of this Mega Stone.
  • Ampharosite: North of Route 12, just outside Coumarine City, you'll find Azure Bay. An old man on the first small island you see will hand over Ampharosite if you speak to him.
  • Blazikenite: The very first Mega Stone you can receive, Blazikenite is given to you via the Mystery Gift option on the main menu of your game. Choose Mystery Gift, then Receive Gift, then Via Internet. The next Pokémon Center attendant you speak to will then give you a Torchic, which has the Blazikenite attached.

  • Venusaurite, Blastoisite, and Charizardite (X and Y): You'll first receive one of these three Mega Stones on your initial visit to Professor Sycamore's Pokémon Lab in Lumiose City. He'll allow you to choose a Venusaur, Squirtle, or Charmander, and will give you their related Mega Stone as well. To receive the other two you'll need to purchase them from the Stone Emporium on Vernal Avenue. Regardless of how you get these Mega Stones, you'll only receive the Charizardite type that matches your current version of Pokémon X and Y
