Pokémon Go will be holding a special Timed Research task to help celebrate the new Mega Evolved Pokémon that are coming to the game. So far, the first we know about are Charizard (X and Y), Blastoise, Venusaur, and Beedrill. If you want your respective Pokémon to reach their Mega Evolution, all you have to do is take them to a Mega Raid to collect Mega Energy by completing it quickly.
