Can I make my Tyranitar beast in doubles ?

Hello!

So Arca here. I am gonna look for every single strategy with Tyranitar, kapich ? It has capted my attention since a while. So I was wondering: If I were to Mega-Evolve it in a double battle with Cresselia as partner, can I use Trick with Cresselia so that Tyranitar gets a Choice Scarf + Mega-Tyranitar, and then, give the Tyranitarite to my opponents, so they are useless, or won't it work ?

Thank you.

Mega Stones ... cannot be taken via Thief and Covet, cause Trick and Switcheroo to fail if used on or by the holder, and cause Fling and Bestow to fail if used by the holder. Embargo and Magic Room also cannot prevent the use of Mega Stones to Mega Evolve Pokémon. Mega Stones are not consumed upon use but only one can be used per battle.

So no, Trick won't work on a Pokemon holding a Mega Stone.
