I remember when I played Pokémon Gold for the first time as a kid and found out that some of my favorite Pokémon from Gen 1 were able to evolve. It was awesome. Now, with Pokémon GO, we’re going to be able to re-live my childhood all over again!
So join me as I list off all of the Pokémon that are currently unable to evolve, but will be able to evolve once the Gen 2 update is released for Pokémon GO. Better start saving your candies now for some of these!
Finally, a use for all of those annoying Zubats! Then again, since it seems like Pokémon with high speed stats are getting the shaft in Pokémon GO, Crobat might not actually be very useful at all. Being a third (and final) stage evolution, we’re guessing it will require 100 candies to make the jump from Golbat to Crobat.
Bellossom is an alternate third (and final) stage evolution for Gloom, which itself is an evolution of Oddish. In the original games you needed to give Gloom a Sun Stone in order for it to evolve into a Bellossom, so we’re not sure how it this will go down in Pokémon GO (It could be semi-random like Eevee?) Again, third stage evolution -> probably 100 candies.
Just like Bellossom, Politoed is an alternate third (and final) stage evolution, this time of Poliwhirl (and Poliwag). In the original games, in order to obtain a Politoed you needed to trade a Poliwhirl to another player while it was holding a King’s Rock. In Pokémon GO, however, we’re not really sure, other than the fact that it will probably require 100 candies.
Just like Politoed, Slowking was only obtainable by trading a certain Pokémon while it was holding a King’s Rock. In this case, that “certain Pokémon” is, you guessed it, Slowpoke. Since he’s technically a second (and final) stage evolution, he will probably require 50 candies to evolve.
