How to Upgrade Mega Ring in Pokémon X and Y
Mega Ring is an in-game item available in Pokémon X and Y that allows you to evolve your Pokémon into its “Mega” form. Mega Ring can be acquired by defeating Korrina, the gym leader of Shalour City, and is used with Mega Stones to make your Pokémon undergo a mega evolution during a Pokémon battle. Mega stones are hard to find in the game, but an upgraded Mega Ring allows you to easily detect Mega Stones buried on the ground. Learn how to upgrade your Mega Ring by scrolling down to step 1.
