Whilst participating players of the International Challenge for February, are awaiting the results and the distribution of the offered Mawilite and Beedrillite Mega Stones, details on 2 more Mega Stones for Sun & Moon has come to light.
By participating in the Kanto X Alola: Regional Rumble competition, players will be able to earn themselves the Pigeotite and Steelixite Mega Stone, provided they battle at least three times to get their names in the rankings. Given the name of the competition, you would be right to assume that only Pokémon available from Kanto and the Alola region are eligible to be used, with the exception of Mewtwo, Mew, Zygarde, Cosmog, Cosmoem, Solgaleo, Lunala, Necrozma, and Magearna.
