- Not to be confused with Meteonite.
In the core series games
In Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, the player can give the Meteorite to Lostelle's father at the Joyful Game Corner on Two Island in exchange for a Moon Stone after rescuing Lostelle at the Berry Forest.
In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the Meteorite changes in appearance and description as the player progresses through the game's story.
- It transforms from its default form to its second form after the player obtains the Devon Scope on Route 120.
- It transforms from its second form to its third form after the player defeats Brendan/May in Lilycove City.
- It transforms from its third form to its final form after the player defeats Zinnia in Granite Cave.
At the climax of the Delta Episode, the player feeds it to Rayquaza to give it the necessary energy to Mega Evolve. In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, no Rayquaza can Mega Evolve until the Rayquaza in the story has consumed the Meteorite (there is no similar requirement in Generation VII).
In the spin-off games
The player can obtain the Meteorite by defeating Mega Rayquaza in Stage 300, the final stage of Roseus Center. The Meteorite was also available as a prize during the Shiny Mega Rayquaza Competitive Stage that ran on both the 3DS and Mobile versions from February 21 to 28, 2017 and July 11 to 18, 2017.
The Meteorite enables the following Mega Evolutions:
|Erases one kind of Pokémon of a different type from Mega Rayquaza (max 10).
|Erases Pokémon and disruptions around two spots you tap.
Erases five tiles in a + shape surrounding each spot. Does not activate if the foe is defeated. Only gives 3 seconds to tap. Can erase fewer than 2.
In the anime
The Meteorite appeared in Fight for the Meteorite!. Professor Cozmo searched for it on Mt. Chimney and succeeded in finding it with the help of a scanner. As soon as he found it, however, Team Magma arrived and attempted to steal it, but Team Aqua's arrival gave Professor Cozmo and Ash a chance to get away with the Meteorite. While hiding from Team Magma, Professor Cozmo explained to Ash that the Meteorite was a part of a large asteroid that had fallen from space.
The Meteorite was soon stolen by a Golbat belonging to Team Magma and placed inside of a machine meant to make Mt. Chimney erupt. As there was no time to get the Meteorite out of the machine in time to prevent the eruption, Professor Cozmo instead chose to push the machine into the volcano, destroying both it and the Meteorite.
The Meteorite appeared in The Wish, under the ownership of May. When Zinnia failed to Mega Evolve Rayquaza, May allowed the Legendary Pokémon to devour the Meteorite, restoring its ability to Mega Evolve.
In the manga
Ash & Pikachu
The Meteorite appeared in Two Groups Attacking! Magma VS. Aqua, where it served the same role as in the anime.
In this manga, the Meteorite is known as the Grand Meteor (Japanese: グランメテオ Grand Meteor). It is a stone from space that has the ability to stop natural energy. It was originally discovered by Professor Cozmo at Meteor Falls.
In Bubble Bubble Toil and Azumarill II, Team Aqua tricked Professor Cozmo into letting them use the Grand Meteor to stop the volcanic activity of Mt. Chimney, which would allow Hoenn's sea level to rise, aiding in their schemes. Though Sapphire fought to stop them, she was unable to prevent the machine powered by the Grand Meteor from making Mt. Chimney dormant. After Team Aqua escaped, Sapphire tried pursuing them, but was only able to find a broken-off Grand Meteor fragment.
In The Beginning of the End with Kyogre & Groudon XIV, Ruby and Sapphire had Mumu and Chic fire their attacks at the Grand Meteor fragment, creating a blast of energy that removed the Red and Blue Orbs from Maxie and Archie's bodies.
In It's Starting to Make Sense Now, Sird revealed that the Grand Meteor was the source where the two Deoxys controlled by Team Rocket originated from. They were born when the Grand Meteor was exposed to a laser from a space shuttle launched by the Mossdeep Space Center, mutating a space virus into two separate Pokémon.
In PS616, Professor Cozmo discovered that the meteoroid threatening to destroy the world was actually the Grand Meteor, which had somehow returned to space and increased in mass. Not wanting to make things confusing by calling them the same name, Nonkichi suggested naming the meteoroid Grand Meteor Delta.
