Pokemon GO Guide: How To Evolve Pokemon With Evolution Items

Niantic Labs recently released a brand new update for their augmented reality game known as Pokemon GO. The update added Gen 2 Pokemon to the game, allowing players to find and capture them.

Alongside the Gen 2 Pokemon, Niantic Labs also released new Items that would allow players to evolve their Gen 1 Pokemon into Gen 2 Pokemon. If you are a long time Pokemon fan, and have played the Pokemon games, you know that some Pokemon require evolution items in order to evolve.

This guide will list all the Pokemon that can be evolved by using evolution items, and which evolution item is required to evolve them.

How To Evolve Pokemon In Pokemon GO:

Most Pokemon evolve when they reach a certain level, however, some Pokemon have certain conditions that have to be met, in order for them to evolve. Some Pokemon require items to evolve, and these items are known as Evolution Items.

Here is a list of all the Evolution Items and which Pokemon they effect in Pokemon GO:

  • Sun Stone – Evolves Sunkern Into Sunflora
  • Sun Stone – Evolves Gloom Into Bellossom
  • King’s Rock – Evolves Slowbro Into Slowking
  • King’s Rock – Evolves Poliwhirl Into Politoed
  • Metal Coat – Evolves Scyther Into Scizor
  • Up-Grade – Evolve Porygon Into Porygon 2
  • Dragon Scale – Evolves Seadra Into Kingdra

Evolution Items are not easy to come by, as Niantic Labs have set the drop rate of these items to be very rare. All of the evolutions listed above can only be obtained by using items so it’s not surprising to see how rare the items are.
