How to Mega Evolve Mewtwo in Pokémon Sun & Moon

Players of Pokémon Sun and Moon can now add the power of Mega Evolution to Mewtwo.



Mewtwo megastones - Pokemon Sun and Moon

Players of Pokémon Sun and Moon can now add the power of Mega Evolution to Mewtwo.

The Legendary Mewtwo is already a pretty impressive Pokémon to have at your disposal, but from today you can make it even more powerful using Mega Evolution to evolve it into either Mega Mewtwo X or Mega Mewtwo Y.

You can do this by using a special code to download a pair of Mewtwo Mega Stones – Mewtwonite X and Mewtwonite Y – in Pokémon Sun and Moon. You can then give either stone to Mewtwo to hold, enabling it to Mega Evolve two different ways during a battle.


Here’s the Mewtwo Mega Stones code you need to get started:


How to download the Mega Mewtwo Mega Stones:

  1. Boot up you copy of Sun or Moon.
  2. On the main menu select Mystery Gift.
  3. Choose Receive Gift.
  4. Select Get with Code/Password, then Yes.
  5. Select Yes again to connect to the Interwebs.
  6. Enter the code: M2DESCENT
  7. The Mega Stones will be added to your copy of the game.
  8. Head to any Pokémon Center and speak to the delivery man to receive your Mega Stones
  9. Make sure you save the game
  10. Go battle.

Don’t forget that Mewtwo itself can’t actually be found in Sun or Moon, but you can bring it into Pokémon Bank via Poké Transporter from earlier games. It’s a bit of a process but you can find out how it works, right here.
