New Evolutions of Pokemon in Gen 2 PoGo
With the upcoming update to Pokemon GO, many players are expecting to finally be able to catch Gen 2 Pokemon. This would be a very welcome addition, keeping in mind the failing interest in the game. With the winter weather further discouraging trainers, a significant update can go a long way in rekindling the love we have for this game. Now, we’re not going to speculate about the Gen 2 Pokemon. Instead, we’ll go over the probable new evolutions of Pokemon already in the game, so that you can start hoarding those candies.
- Golbat to Crobat
In Gen 2, Golbat should get a third evolution – Crobat. In the prior Pokemon games, this evolution depneds on the Happiness factor, which doesn’t exist in PoGO. We’ve yet to see how it will come about here, but stock up on Zubat candies just in case.
- Slowpoke to Slowking
Nothing special to say about this one. Stock up on candy if you want to evolve your Slowpoke into a Slowking, which will probably cost 50 or 100 candies.
- Seadra to Kingdra
For this evolution of Horsea, you’ll probably need 100 candies.
- Chansey to Blissey
This evolution will probably cost 50 candies or more, and well worth it.
- Gloom to Bellossom
Here we have our first instance of a possible branching evolution. So far, Gloom could only evolve into Vileplume. We might get the option to redirect that evolution somehow into Bellossom. We don’t know yet how to trigger this.
- Poliwhirl to Politoed
This is another branching evolution we might get – Politoed instead of Poliwrath as the final evolution of Poliwag. Again, we don’t presently know how this evolution will be triggered.
- Eevee to Espeon / Umbreon
Pokemon Gen 2 should introduce Espeon and Umbreon, a psychic / dark evolution of Eevee. This evolution also depends on the Happiness, so we’ve yet to see how it will work in Pokemon GO. It might stay as simple as naming your Eevee according to the Pokemon you want, or the day-night cycle, who knows.
- Onix to Steelix and Scyther to Scizor
Both of these evolutions in the other Pokemon games get triggered when you trade one of these Pokemon while holding a specific item. Perhaps we can expect the introduction of trading to Pokemon GO?
This is what we can guess at so far. If you have any other ideas, let us know in the comments!
