Stat changes before mega evolutions?

0 votes

Hi,
I was just wondering if any stat changes done before a Pokemon mega-evolves will be carried over after they mega evolve. E.g., Gardevoir uses calm mind, and then a turn later mega evolves. Since mega Gardevoir's sp. atk & sp. def are higher than regular gardevoir's, do the effects of the calm mind increase to match the higher stats? Or do stat modifiers just kind of 'reset' when a Pokemon mega evolves? Thanks in advance.

To rephrase what everyone said in to understandable words:

When you mega evolve and you have a boost such as Calm Mind or Swords Dance, you do keep the boost, and those boosts effect the mega's stats, not the original.

They don't reset because when my Scizor uses swords dance and then mega evolves Scizor still gets the +2 attack boost. Hope I helped!

First of all no, stat modifiers don't reset when a Pokemon mega evolves. Second yes, the calm mind boost would adjust to gardevoir's new stats. So basically the dtat boosts do adjust when a Pokemon megavolves, allowing it to abuse that stat with that stat boost.
