A new set of Mega Steelix Energy Limited Research tasks have gone live in Pokemon Go, with plenty of Mega Energy on offer as a reward for completing every step.

Mega Evolutions are some of the most powerful creatures you can have on your team in Pokemon Go, but they’re typically very costly to evolve, so any chance to earn some bonus Mega Energy is always welcome.

With the Steel/Ground-type Mega Steelix making its debut in December 2021, many Trainers will still be struggling to earn enough Mega Energy to evolve it – but Niantic may have just solved that problem for you.

A new Mega Steelix Energy Limited Research questline has gone live for January 2022, and completing all of the tasks will give you plenty of Mega Energy as a reward.

How do you evolve Mega Steelix in Pokemon Go?

You’ll need a total of 200 Mega Steelix Energy to be able to Mega Evolve your Steelix, and 40 Mega Steelix Energy for every following Evolution. You might have enough by completing this Limited Research.

Sadly, Mega Steelix doesn’t perform very well at all in Raids, so it’s only worth using to provide your other Ground and Steel-types with a Mega Boost and earn more Candy when catching Pokemon of those types.
