Trade Evolution

The trade evolution is a cool feature that was added yesterday. Basically few Pokémons when traded are free to evolve, without using any candy. A cool way to evolve Pokémon and gather more XP easily.

These are the Pokémon that can use this feature at the moment:

Kadabra, Machoke, Graveler, and Haunter are some that benefit from this feature. Also, a cool thing to know its that old traded Pokémons can also be evolved for free!

Boldore, Gurdurr, Karrablast, and Shelmet also benefit from the trade evolution mechanic. Gurdurr is interesting to watch, therefore it seems that it will be a strong Pokémon to have!

gurdurrImagine not loving this Pokémon! We hope you have a great time farming and having luck finding a good IV one. Happy catching!
