Knowing how to manage the Pokemon GO Clamperl evolution and get Huntail and Gorebyss is important if you want to eventually complete your Pokedex, to say nothing of getting every shiny variant in the game. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like you have much say in the matter. What do I mean by that? Well, let’s dive into it.
How to Get Huntail & Gorebyss in Pokemon GO
To get Huntail and Gorebyss in Pokemon GO, the first thing you need to know is that the Clamperl evolution is completely random. I know that’s not the best news in the world, but it is what it is. So, here’s how the process works. In order to evolve Clamperl, you have to feed it fifty Candies. That’s simple enough. From there, it can turn into either Gorebyss or Huntail. Unfortunately, you have no control over which one it’s going to be, as far as we know. The time of day doesn’t factor in. You can’t give it any Evolution Items. It’s just a flip of the coin. So, just keep evolving and eventually, you should get both evolutions. If you know of any way to game the system, let us know in the comments.
So, that’s how you get Huntail and Gorebyss in Pokemon GO, and how the Clamperl evolution works. And before you ask, yes, all of those can be shiny, too, just to make things even more difficult. Good luck collecting them all. The main difference between Gorebyss and Huntail, by the way, is in their moveset. Gorebyss has Water Gun (Water) and Confusion (Psychic) as Fast Attacks and Draining Kiss (Fairy), Psychic (should be obvious) and Water Pulse (Water) as Charged Attacks. As for Huntail, it can have Bite (Dark) and Water Gun (Water) as Fast Moves and Ice Beam (Ice), Crunch (Dark) and Aqua Tail (Water) as Charged Moves.
