I can’t complete the ‘Evolve a Grass-type Pokémon’ task. What’s going on?
Currently, Niantic changed the wording on that task from ‘Evolve an evolved Grass-type Pokémon’ to Evolve a Grass-type Pokémon’ but it kept the old requirements of needing to ‘Evolve an evolved Grass-type Pokémon’. In addition, the task won’t work with evolutions from Sinnoh (Gen 4).
Examples of evolutions that will work is:
- Ivysaur to Venasaur
- Gloom to Vileplume or Bellossom
- Weepinbell to Victreebell
- Bayleaf to Magnanium
- Grovyle to Sceptile
- Lombre to Ludicolo
- Nuzleaf to Shiftry
I’ll update this accordingly if there is any clarification or changes to this.
How do I evolve an Eevee to a Espeon or a Umbreon?
So, unlike the evolutions for Vaporeon, Flareon, or Jolteon (which are random), evolving Eevee to Espeon or Umbreon is guaranteed as long as you meet these 3 requirements:
- Walk Eevee as your buddy for 10 km
- Earn two candies from walking with Eevee
- Evolve that Eevee during the DAY for Espeon or at NIGHT for Umbreon
On the Eevee’s info screen, the evolution button will show a silhouette of an Espeon/Umbreon. If you don’t see the correct silhouette, you likely missed one of the requirements. I recommend you backtrack and try again.
There is also a nickname trick that can be used once for each Eeveelution. Nickname your Eevee Sakura to produce a Espeon or Tamao to produce a Umbreon before evolving.
How do I get a silver/gold Johto medal?
The Johto medals require registering a certain number of Johto region Pokémon in the Pokédex. The silver medal requires 40 Pokémon and the gold medal requires 90 Pokémon.
