Mega-Evolved Pokémon are identified by having "Mega" in front of their name.
A Pokémon appearance, Type, Base stats and Abilities can also change significantly while Mega-Evolved; how significantly depends on the Pokémon species.
Every Mega-Evolved Pokémon has a base stat total exactly 100 points higher than that of its base form.
The trasformation lasts until the Pokémon faints or the battle ends; if it is switched out, it will remain Mega Evolved.
There are 46 species of Pokémon that are capable of Mega Evolution, and there are 48 different Mega Evolutions.
Some of them possess more than one Mega Evolution form (like for Charizard), in those cases the Mega Stone held is what decides which form the Pokémon will take.
You are only able to choose one between Dynamax and Mega Evolution, as it is not possible to equip both the Mega Bracelet and the Dynamax Band at the same time.
To Dynamax your Pokémon again you have to equip the Dynamax Band from the Bag in the bottom-left of your Inventory.
How to Mega Evolve
In order to Mega Evolve, the Pokémon must be holding its appropriate Mega Stone and the Trainer must have a Mega Bracelet equipped.
Only Rayquaza does not need a Mega Stone to Mega Evolve; instead, it must know the move Dragon Ascent.

- Note: If you still cannot Mega Evolve after obtaining the Mega Bracelet, you will have to equip it by hand!
