I upgraded my Mega Ring and have been looking for Mega Stones, and I found a nice guide to the Mega Stone's locations. However, the Mega Stone isn't in the place it's supposed to be, and I'm sure the location is right. Why isn't my Mega Stone here?

There seems to be two factors for when Mega Stones appear:

  • You must have "upgraded" the Mega Ring postgame by battling your rival in Kiloude (after beating the Champion you get a pass to use the train in Lumoise to get here), then talking to professor Sycamore in Anistar City, this allows you to find Mega Stones not previously availble, in sparkling patches on the ground.

  • Some (or all?) Mega Stones found in this way must be obtained between 8 and 9 PM on your 3DS's clock. Guides only note some stones as being "night only" but in my experience none of these sparkles would show up past 9 PM or before 8 PM. You can simply play with the system time if you cannot play in these hours or if you miss the critical time. Don't worry if the game doesn't look like it's night time, nights are very bright in the pokemon world.

What is the "final city"? Is it Kiloude, the city you can only get to after you get the TMC pass from the professor? –  Nolonar Oct 21 '13 at 16:19
    
@Nolonar Yes, that's the one, couldn't think of the name without my game at hand –  Ben Brocka Oct 21 '13 at 16:21

I've also noticed that you can't fight your rival in Kiloude City until you participate in the Battle Maison. I did one round in the single competition, then my rival appeared where she was supposed to be. –  C-dizzle Oct 21 '13 at 17:25

I'd also like to note that the 3DS does not automatically adjust for Daylight Savings Time. If you are in a region that uses DST please make sure that you adjust your clock accordingly –  Robotnik Jan 15 at 19:10
    
@Robotnik good idea. I always assume my 3DS clock is wrong and manually check it for any time-based thing like this. –  Ben Brocka Jan 15 at 20:44
