Pokemon Sun and Moon players can grab a pair of Mega Stones for Mewtwo from today

Pokemon Sun and Moon players are being handed a distribution code for two Mega Stones to evolve their Legendary Pokemon Mewtwo. Also, Nintendo has provided a date on when to expect Mega Stones for Mawilite and Beedrillite to drop.


The code allows Pokemon Sun and Moon players to evolve Mewtwo into either a Mewtwonite X or Mewtwonite Y when the creature is handed one of the Mega Stones. This will allow Mewtwo to Mega Evolve two different ways during battle.

Here’s the Mewtwo Mega Stones code: M2DESCENT

This is a global code so it should work in any region. An end date for the distribution event is not known, so it would be best to go ahead and claim it.

Since Mewtwo cannot be found out in the wild in Sun and Moon, players will need to bring it into Pokemon Bank via Poke Transporter from earlier games. These Pokemon will lose their items in the process, but this is the only way to get Mega Mewtwo X or Mega Mewtwo Y into the game at present.

If you have never entered a code before, you will need to follow these steps:

  • Select Mystery Gift on the main menu.
  • Select Receive Gift.
  • Select Get with Code/Password, then Yes, and then Yes again to connect to the Internet.
  • Enter your code.
  • Watch as you receive Mega Stones.
  • Speak to the deliveryman in any Pokemon Center to pick up your Mega Stones.
  • Be sure to save your game.

As far as the missing Mega Stones for Mawilite and Beedrillite are concerned, the code is being handed out to a limited amount of players beginning March 7, per serebii.net. A shared serial code for both of these stones will be made available to all in April.

Per a previous report, the other missing Mega Stones for Sun and Moon will be handed out through various events and online postings through summer, without a wait period attached.
