New Pokemon GO Items and How to Use Them


If evolving Pokemon with an item is not yet a clear process to you, here’s what you need to do:

These items are used in addition to pre-existing Pokemon candies to evolve from first-gen monsters.

The items are:

*** Sun Stone**

*** King’s Rock**

*** Metal Coat**

*** Dragon Scale**

*** Up-Grade**

  • A Sun Stone will transform Gloom into Bellossom when coupled with 100 Oddish candies.

  • Combining Seadra with 100 Horsea candies and a Dragon Scale gets Kingdra, its final form.

  • Porygon becomes Porygon 2 with 50 Porygon candies and an Up-Grade.

  • Both Poliwhirl and Slowpoke use the King’s Rock to evolve, and Onix and Scyther rely upon Metal Coat.

  • When evolving Onix or Scyther, all that’s needed is 50 of their candies and a Metal Coat item.

  • When it comes to Slowpoke and Poliwhirl, however, things are a bit different. Both Slowpoke and Poliwhirl have two different evolutionary forms, including the first-gen Slowbro and Poliwrath.

  • To get Politoed and Slowking — the new forms of Slowpoke and Poliwhirl — players need a respective 100 and 50 candies, as well as the King’s Rock item.
