Pokémon That Will Be Capable Of Mega Evolution In Pokémon GO

Mega Evolution is coming to Pokémon GO and, according to a recent datamine, it will involve Mega Raids, Mega Candy, and Special Quest lines. Many trainers are currently powering up their Pokémon in preparation for this upcoming rollout, especially considering the fact that Niantic promised trainers that they'd be able to Mega Evolve their already caught Pokémon. To prepare for this game-changing element, here are all Pokémon that can Mega Evolve in the main series games.
