Players should talk to the delivery men in any of the Pokemon Centers to pick up the stones. Furthermore, the players should also their game after completing the entire process.

Through the stones, players can have their Pokemon undergo Mega Evolution during battle. The stones also let their Pokemon enjoy different kinds of base form enhancements. Some of the upgrades include new abilities, increased statistics, and in some cases, a different elemental typing.

According to the game’s website, players can use the Pidgeotite, Steelixite, Heracronite, and Houndoominite Mega Stones to Mega Evolve Pidgeot, Steelix, Heracross, and Houndoom, respectively.

Earlier this month, an announcement rolled out, saying that players can download the special Midnight Form Lycanroc starting on May 15 via the game retailer GameStop. The Rock-type Pokemon will be available until June 5 and give players the chance to enjoy some of its powers. Some of the Pokemon’s offerings include the “No Guard” hidden ability. It locks in every move executed during battle and makes sure that the moves hit every target.

Another is the Life Orb, which increases the Pokemon’s damage output with only a minimal decrease in its health for every turn made. Players can download the new Lycanroc by selecting Mystery Gift on the menu screen then receive the gift using a code. Much like the Mega Stones, players can claim the new Pokemon from the deliverymen at Pokemon Centers.
