Scizor

Scizor is the second (and final) stage evolution of Scyther. Fun fact: Scizor is arguably weaker than Scyther, since upon evolving it loses over 40 points in its base Speed stat while only gaining 20 in Attack and Defense. In the original games, in order to obtain a Scizor one must trade a Scyther that is holding a Metal Coat. In Pokémon GO, you’ll probably just need 50 candies.

Espeon

Espeon is a second (and final) stage evolution of Eevee, making it an Eeveelution. To obtain an Espeon in the original games, you needed to level up your Eevee (with high friendship) during the day (or with a Sun Shard in your inventory). In Pokémon GO, it’ll probably be 25 candies.

Umbreon

Like Espeon, Umbreon is another second (and final) stage evolution for Eevee. To obtain an Umbreon in the original games, a high friendship Eevee needs to level up either at night or with a Moon Shard in the players inventory. Again, since this is Pokémon GO, 25 candies will probably do the trick.

Porygon2

Porygon2 is the second stage evolution of Porygon, and is one weird looking dude. To evolve your Porygon in the original games, you needed to trade one that was holding an item called “Up-Grade”. Since Porygon2 is a second stage evolution, it will probably take 50 candies in Pokémon GO.

And that’s the full list of Pokémon that will be getting an evolution once Gen 2 is released! What Pokémon are you most excited for? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. i had recently hatched a duplicate scyther that brought my scyther candies up to 61. I’d say i’m prepared for Scizor.
