Pokemon Go A Mega Discovery is the latest special research to feature in Pokemon Go (opens in new tab), and it's focused on the recent introduction of Mega Evolutions. While Venusaur, Charizard, and Blastoise all currently feature in Mega Raids, the tasks and rewards for A Mega Discovery are all about the fourth Pokemon that can Mega Evolve right now; Beedrill. Here are all of the Pokemon Go A Mega Discovery rewards, tasks, and more, so you can beeline through it... pun intended.

  • Send 3 gifts to friends (10 Poke Balls)

When you complete all four stages, you'll have enough Mega Beedrill Energy to evolve it twice, since each Mega Evolution is only temporary. Later down the line, we're expecting more methods of obtaining Mega Energy to be introduced, but for now your Beedrill is limited to this special research.

Give me a game and I will write every "how to" I possibly can or die trying. When I'm not knee-deep in a game to write guides on, you'll find me hurtling round the track in F1, flinging balls on my phone in Pokemon Go, pretending to know what I'm doing in Football Manager, or clicking on heads in Valorant.
