Trade evolution and new Pokémon

Niantic have announced that a new mechanic is coming to Pokémon GO: Trade Evolution. It’s been a staple of the mainline series since the very first game, but it’s only coming to Pokémon GO now.

Here’s how it works:

  • How it works: Trade an eligible Pokémon to lower the Candy cost to evolve them.
  • Which Pokémon can gain Evolution benefits from trading? Kadabra, Machoke, Graveler, and Haunter are some Pokémon that can now benefit from trade Evolution. If you received one of these Pokémon in a trade in the past—congratulations! That Pokémon will retroactively qualify for no Candy cost when you evolve it.
  • Pokémon originally discovered in the Unova region that benefit from trade Evolution: Boldore, Gurdurr, Karrablast, and Shelmet are now appearing in Pokémon GO and will be eligible for trade Evolution benefits. And remember, Trainers: Boldore’s and Gurdurr’s Evolutions, Gigalith and Conkeldurr, might be powerful Pokémon to have in your battle parties!

Also, more Pokémon from the Unova regions are coming. Here’s those that you will be able to discover soon:

  • Pokémon appearing in the wild: Roggenrola, Tympole, Dwebble, Trubbish, Karrablast, Joltik, Shelmet, and more.
  • Pokémon hatching from Eggs:
    • 2 km Eggs: Venipede and Dwebble
    • 5 km Eggs: Roggenrola, Tympole, Trubbish, Karrablast, Joltik, and Shelmet
    • 10 km Eggs: Timburr, Tirtouga, Archen, and Axew
  • Pokémon appearing in raids: Timburr will also be available in one-star raids.
