Mega Evolutions have been a thing in the Pokemon series for a while, but their debut in Pokemon GO wasn’t met with a lot of enthusiasm, as the original mechanics made it difficult for any Pokemon to mega evolve.

In May 2022, however, Niantic introduced a lot of great changes that made Mega Evolutions much easier to achieve, thus turning a very mediocre mechanic into a great one that has spiced up the Pokemon GO experience quite a bit.

With Mega Evolutions now requiring way less effort to achieve than before, many are wondering which of the Charizard Mega Evolutions is the best. Here’s which one of the two you should prioritize and why.

Which Mega Charizard is Better X or Y in Pokemon GO

Charizard is among the most unique Pokemon in Pokemon GO when it comes to Mega Evolutions, as it is the only Pokemon with two forms, Mega Charizard X and Mega Charizard Y. The two forms are both rather good, but one of them is clearly above the other in terms of stats and overall potential.

Between the two Mega Evolutions, Mega Charizard Y is the absolute best when it comes to stats. It has a much higher attack and can reach 5037 CP, as opposed to Mega Charizard X’s 4356 Max CP. Defense and Stamina are pretty much the same, but the higher attack makes Mega Charizard Y the best Fire-type Pokemon in the game for Raid Battles. Mega Charizard X is still a solid Dragon-type Pokemon, to be honest, but there are better choices for Raids such as Dragonite.
