Pokémon Go developer Niantic has rebalanced the game’s new Mega Evolution mechanic following widespread fan complaints. First launched last week, the major addition was met with immediate criticism for requiring numerous raids to grind a new resource, Mega Energy, for little perceived reward.
In response, Niantic said it had heard its community “loud and clear” and would be making changes. Those changes arrived last night, with the promise of several more to come.
The cost to re-evolve Mega Venusaur, Charizard and Blastoise has dropped from 50 to 40, while the cost to re-evolve Beedrill has dropped from 25 to 20.
