How to Get Mega Steelix
Steelix in its mega evolved form cannot be obtained during the raid. The mega raid boss can always be caught in its base form, hence the CP ranges are for a standard Steelix.
Steelix is catchable with the following CP values:
2010 – 2097 CP boosted by Sunny or Snow weather boost 2512 – 2622 CP boosted by Sunny or Snow weather boost
To obtain Mega Steelix, you will require 200 Mega Energy for the initial evolution, followed by 40 Mega Energy to evolve the same Steelix again later. Mega Energy may be gained during Mega Steelix Raids, and once Mega Steelix has developed, you can earn 5 Mega Energy per candy by walking it as your buddy. You can walk any Onix or Steelix to get Mega Energy, as long as you’ve previously evolved one to add it to your Mega Pokédex.
Like all Mega Raid Bosses, you can catch the shiny version of Steelix from a raid.

Mega Steelix Moveset Analysis
|Fast Moves||Charge Moves|
|Iron Tail – Steel |
Thunder Fang – Electric

Crunch – Dark
Iron Tail and Heavy Slam are your greatest options for DPS because they also acquire STAB. Mega Steelix’s moveset is unusual, with no Ground type fast move and a random Electric fast move. Keep Mega Steelix as a Steel-type attacker to get the most out of it.
