Trade Evolution applies to Kadabra, Machoke, Graveler, Haunter, Boldore, Gurdurr, Karrablast, Shelmet and more Pokémon in Pokémon GO

More Unova Pokémon are now available in Pokémon GO for the first time. Read on below for all the details from Niantic:

Trade Evolution and more Pokémon originally discovered in Unova are here!

Trainers,

Trade Evolution has long been an iconic mechanic in the main Pokémon series. We are excited to adapt this feature to Pokémon GO!

Trading certain Pokémon will result in no Candy cost to evolve them. More Pokémon originally discovered in the Unova region are also coming to Pokémon GO—and some of them will benefit from the addition of trade Evolution, too.

Trade Evolution

  • 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!

Even more Pokémon coming to the world of Pokémon GO!

In addition to Boldore, Gurdurr, Karrablast, and Shelmet, we have an exciting cast of more Pokémon that will be appearing in the wild, in raids, and in Eggs soon.

  • Pokémon appearing in the wild: Roggenrola, Tympole, Dwebble, Trubbish, Karrablast, Joltik, Shelmet, and more.

    • 2 km Eggs: Venipede and Dwebble
    • 5 km Eggs: Roggenrola, Tympole, Trubbish, Karrablast, Joltik, and Shelmet

  • Pokémon appearing in raids: Timburr will also be available in one-star raids.
  • Pokémon appearing in the wild in certain parts of the world:

    • Europe, Asia, and Australia: Sawk (also available in 10 km Eggs)
