How to Add Mega Tyranitar to Your Team

Like previous Mega raids, you cannot catch Mega Tyranitar directly. Instead, you must use a raid pass to join the Mega Tyranitar Mega Raid. However, I suggest you call in your friends to join the fight, as more people will do more damage.

After defeating the Mega Tyranitar, you’ll receive a Tyranitar as a bonus encounter. If you already have a Tyranitar, you won’t get it. Additionally, you’ll also receive Mega Energy. Once you have 200 Mega Energy, you can evolve Tyranitar into Mega Tyranitar.

And that’s it for our Pokemon GO Mega Tyranitar Mega Raid Guide. Are you still having trouble catching this beast? Lay down your questions in the comments below and we will help you out!
