How to Evolve Inkay to Malamar in Pokemon Go

To evolve Inkay to Malamar in Pokemon Go, you’ll have to create some “unique circumstances,” according to the official blog post. The only clue it gives says “Trainers who have journeyed through the Kalos region in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y may have an inkling as to what those circumstances might be!” Well, in these games, Inkay evolved at level 30 if you had a Rare Candy and turned your 3DS upside down. So, while we can’t say for certain, maybe you’ll have to gather like fifty Inkay Candies and turn your phone upside down to get Malamar. We don’t know for sure yet, but we’ll let you know as soon as we find out.

How To Catch Inkay in Pokemon Go During Psychic Spectacular Event

To catch Inkay during the Psychic Spectacular event in Pokemon Go and eventually get Malamar, you’ll have three avenues to pursue. The first one is finding the new monster in the wild, which should happen at a decent rate while the event lasts. The second way to get Inkay will be in one-star raids, in which the new Pokemon will appear along with other Psychic Pokemon. Lastly, completing themed Field Research tasks will sometimes reward you with encounters with Inkay. Other than that, just make sure to stock up on Berries and Poke Balls (and maybe a few Lures for good measure) to make actually catching the thing easier.

Where to Find Inkay in Pokemon Go

To find Inkay in Pokemon Go and obtain Malamar, you first need to wait for the Psychic Spectacular event to kick off. This should happen on Wednesday, September 8th at 10AM local time, and end on Monday, September 13th at 8PM local time. Once it does, you can expect to see Inkay in the wild, in one-star raids, and in encounters unlocked by completing themed Field Research tasks. I honestly don’t think that there will be any special zones where the new Pokemon is going to appear more than in others. Just make sure that you’re out and about. With a little help from Lady Luck and a few tactically-used Lures, I’m sure you’ll catch at least a few Inkays.
