All Pokemon evolve



Swap evolution is a well-known mechanism in the main Pokémon series. That's why we're all the more pleased that we can now introduce this feature in Pokémon GO.

If you trade certain Pokémon, you don't need candy to develop them. In addition, other Pokémon from the Einall region are making their way into Pokémon GO - some of them can be developed by swap.

Exchange development

  • This is how it works: Swap a corresponding Pokémon so that development costs less candy.
  • For which Pokémon is swap development possible? Kadabra, Maschok, Georok and Alpollo, for example, are some Pokémon that can be developed by swapping. If you've traded one of these Pokémon in the past, you're in luck! You can develop this Pokémon afterwards without having to use candy for it.
  • Exchange development is possible for the following unicorn Pokémon: Sedimantur, Strepoli, Laukaps and Schnuthelm can now be caught in Pokémon GO and developed by exchange. Brockoloss and Meistagrif, the developments from Sedimantur and Strepoli, are sure to do extremely well on your combat team.

Even more Pokémon enrich the world of Pokémon GO!

In addition to Sedimantur, Strepoli, Laukaps and Schnuthelm, other Pokémon will soon appear in the wild and in raid battles and hatch from eggs.

  • Pokémon that appear in the wild: Kiesling, Schallquap, Lithomith, Unratütox, Laukaps, Wattzapf, Schnuthelm and many more
