How to Get Mega energy for Scizor in Pokemon GO
There are 3 ways for you to get Mega Energy for Scizor in this game.
- From the Bug Out! Event: At the time of writing this article a new Ultra Unlock event will take place for Pokemon GO. Throughout this Bug Out! event, you can challenge Mega Scizor in Mega Raids. This is one of the sure ways on this list that will definitely allow you to collect Mega Energy for it. Since Scizor is a Bug Steel-type Pokemon it is 4 times weak to fire. So you should counter it by using the following Pokemon in your raids.
- Mega Blaziken
- In case the event is over but there is still a mega raid for Scizor, then you can still get mega energy form those raids.
The above method is more of an event-specific method that relies on raids. If there are no Mega raids going on, these are the other two ways that allow you to collect Mega Energy for Scizor.
- Walk with Scizor as your buddy: Select a Scizor from your Pokemon list and set them as your buddy. Now, start walking with it. That is all you need to do, while it sounds simple there are two problems with this method. You should have evolved your Scizor into a Mega Scizor at least once before you can walk with it to get Mega energy. And the second is there are no fixed milestones when you get Mega Energy. While you keep walking you should eventually get Mega energy based on how many kilometers you walked.
- Look for research tasks: Check for any event that can give you Mega Energy for Scizor. If there is such an event available then you should complete it to get Mega Energy from it.
