Mega Abomasnow Pokémon GO Arrives in December Event

Beginning December 1, you'll be able to participate in a variety of Ice type Pokémon themed festivities. In its Pokémon GO Debut, Mega Abomasnow will appear in Mega Raids. It will be replacing Mega Blastoise, which will appear more frequently in the week leading up to Mega Abomasnow.

To Mega Evolve Abomasnow, you need the Mega Abomasnow Mega Energy obtained by defeating it in Mega Raids. Mega Energy is specific to the species. The cost to Mega Evolve a Pokémon will decrease the more times you Mega Evolve it.

You can also get Mega Energy for a Pokémon by walking members of its evolution family as your buddy. For Abomasnow, you can go for a stroll with Snover or Abomasnow to generate some Energy. This is also how you'll get Mega Blastoise Energy when Mega Blastoise leaves.

If you don't have an Abomasnow or a Snover yet, you'll be able to catch a few Snover during Spotlight Hours on Dec. 29.

Mega Evolved Pokémon can be used in Raids and in Trainer Battles, but cannot be left to defend a Gym.
