When does a Pokemon Mega transform?

At the beginning of the turn no matter what, or when it attacks?

You can choose when to press the button. It transforms and attacks the same turn.

You get a choice to Mega Evolve during your turn

I think he means if the opponent's Poke is faster than yours, does Mega Evo get priority over their speed.

In that case, you can only do it during your turn. It's part of attacking. You can attack, mega evolve and attack, mega evolve and use an item, etc.

No, what I mean, is like...


Mewtwo (40 Speed)
vs
Ninjask (100 Speed.)

If I choose to Mega Evolve will it go...

Mewtwo Megavolves!
Ninjask Attacks!
Mewtwo Attacks!
(In other words, the evo IGNORES speed and happens at the beginning anyway.

Or...

Ninjask Attacks!
Mewtwo Megavolves!
Mewtwo Attacks!
(The Pokemon will only Megavolve when it's their turn to attack)

If it's the latter, I feel bad for Mawile.

I have a feeling Mega Evolutions take ultra-priority in a turn, then, whatever stat changes happen in speed, redetermines the turn order.

Looking it up, Mewtwo and Crobat (who is the first Pokemon sent out in the demo) have the same base speed. If you chose not to Mega Evolve, Crobat probably would have gone first due to probably having a speed-boosting nature.

Just a guess.
