You’ll find Mawile’s Mega Stone (Mawilite) located on the ground in the southeast area of Verdanturf Town. But it’s sitting in a hidden part of the town that can only be accessed by following a narrow path from Route 117.
Mawilite Location (Step-by-Step)
Step 1: From the Mauville City Pokémon Center, enter Mauville City’s interior using the west entrance.
Step 2: Once inside, head all the way west and take the western exit that leads to Route 117.
Step 3: Once you’re on Route 117, proceed westward.
Step 4: As you go along, you’ll notice trainers scattered along the route. If you want to avoid them you can take the middle path as you go west.
Step 5: Eventually you’ll see a field of flowers below a white picket fence.
Enter the field by going down through an opening in the fence. Then look for another opening in the southern section of the fence (pictured below).
Step 6: Once you’ve gone through both openings, follow this path all the way to the west and it should bring you to a hidden section of Verdanturf Town.
At the very end of this hidden path you’ll see a sparkling object on the ground. Pick it up to obtain the Mawilite.
Is Mega Mawile Worth Using?
With the highest base Attack in the game due to Huge Power, Mega Mawile excels as a top-tier wallbreaker, and it is certainly worth using.
Swords Dance enables it to punish defensive teams and sweep hyper offense teams with ease.
But because of its low base Speed, it usually has to rely on Sucker Punch if it wants to hit first.
Overall though, Mega Mawile’s raw offensive power secures its position among the most formidable Mega Evolutions in Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire.
Tip: Mega Mawile’s new ability is Huge Power, which doubles a Pokémon’s base Attack stat.
Here’s a few pros & cons to consider if you’re thinking of using Mega Mawile on your team.
- With Huge Power, Mega Mawile boasts the highest base Attack of all Pokémon. Its 105 doubles to 210, surpassing Mega Mewtwo X’s 190 base Attack. Powerful STAB moves like Play Rough and Iron Head make it an exceptional wallbreaker.
- Triggers Intimidate before Mega Evolving. Mawile’s regular ability lowers the opponent’s Attack, enhancing its survivability against physical attackers.
- Access to one of the strongest priority moves – Sucker Punch. This move can be further boosted by Swords Dance, which can compensate for it not being a STAB move. But even unboosted, Sucker Punch deals massive damage with Huge Power alone.
- Very low base Speed. Mega Mawile’s 50 base Speed means it’s nearly impossible for this Mega Evolution to outspeed opponents outside of Trick Room, unless it uses Sucker Punch.
- Mediocre base HP. Even with decent defenses, its 50 base HP can be exploited by super-effective moves from Fire or Ground-types.
