Wondering how you can evolve Goomy into Sliggoo and Goodra in Pokémon GO?
When Pokémon GO was first introduced, the evolution of Pokémons can be achieved by simply collecting a particular type of candy. As the game continues to expand, so is the evolution process of every Pokémon.
Some Pokémons need to eat a certain amount of candy, others need buddy achievements, and some evolutions are even affected by the current weather.
This leaves some Pokémon GO players confused as to how they can evolve their beloved Pokémon.
Today, we’re going to focus on Goomy and its evolution.
Goomy is a new addition to Pokémon GO, which is dependent on the weather to make its evolution.
Here’s everything you need to know about Goomy and how you can evolve it to Slinggoo and Goodra.
Let’s get started!
How to Catch Goomy in Pokémon GO?
Goomy is a 6th generation Dragon-type Pokémon that was recently added to the game. Its evolutions are Sliggoo and Goodra, but you won’t be able to found them roaming around Pokémon Go’s world.
Goomy is rarely seen in the game since the recent Luminous Legends event, which focused on other Pokémons.
Because sightings of Goomy are rare, you’ll need to use a Pinap Berry for every catch to collect candies faster. On the other hand, a Silver Pinap Berry would be even better as it can also help you secure your chances to capture Goomy.
Use Rainy Lures
Goomy is a Dragon-type Pokémon. However, its evolution chain has a unique preference for water and will only evolve under the rain. If you want to evolve Goomy to Sliggoo, you’ll simply need to feed it 25 Goomy Candy.
However, when you try to evolve Sliggoo to Goodra, this is where things get complicated. Aside from 100 Goomy candies, you also need to wait for a rainy day before you can evolve this Pokémon.
Thankfully, you don’t have to wait for that day since Rainy Lure has been added to the game.
As expected, type-particular Lure Modules work the same way as typical Lure Modules, but they attract certain types of Pokémons. The Rainy Lure Module draws water, electric, and bug-type Pokémons.
As confusing as it gets, Rainy Lure Modules doesn’t attract Dragon-type Pokémons, but it can be used to evolve Sliggoo into Goodra.
You can purchase Rany Lures in the Pokeshop for 200 Pokecoins.
How to Collect Goomy Candies Faster?
The last thing that you’ll need to perform Goomy’s evolution is enough number of Goomy candies. In total, you’ll need to gather 125 candies to evolve Goomy into Sliggoo and Sliggo to Goodra.
With this, here are some tips to follow to gather Goomy candies faster:
- Try to catch more Goomy
- Use Goomy as your buddy while exploring the world
- Feed berries to Goomy in a gym
- Transfer Pokémons
- Hatch Eggs
