How to Mega Evolve in Rescue Team DX

Use Empowerment Seeds

Empowerment Seed

Item Effect
Eating it causees the Pokemon to become Awakened, making them very strong!

To Mega Evolve in Rescue Team DX, a Pokemon that can Mega Evolve needs to eat an Empowerment Seed.

However, the effect of Empowerment Seeds only lasts on the floor your use it on, so if you move to the next floor or escape from the dungeon, the Pokemon you used it on will return to its normal state.

Mega Evolution is mostly after Story has been cleared

Empowerment Seeds are mainly available after you clear the story, so you most likely won't be able to Mega Evolve until you clear the main story of the game.

However, since you can sometimes get them as Job rewards, it is possible to Mega Evolve before then.

Since you can't evolve your Pokemon, you will have to befriend Pokemon who can Mega Evolve already, like Glalie or Pinsir.

Only some Pokemon can Mega Evolve

Since only some Pokemon can Mega Evolve, using an Empowerment Seed on Pokemon that can't Mega Evolve will only grant the Awakened status.

Since the Seeds disappear after being used, we recommend saving them for Pokemon that can Mega Evolve.

Awakened State

The Awakened State was introduced in Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon. Pokemon in an Awakened State have their linked moves always perform a critical hit. They will also bypass any type disadvantages. In Rescue Team DX, the Awakened State allows Pokemon to Mega Evolve.
