Porygon evolutionary line in Pokemon Go

Porygon requires special and very sought-after Pokemon Go items to evolve into Poryong2 and Porygon-Z, so here’s everything you need to know to get the complete evolutionary line.

Pokemon Go players are preparing for the next Community Day Classic featuring Porygon, meaning many trainers will try to evolve it into Porygon2 and Porygon-Z. The Virtual Pokemon is one of the creatures that has special requirements for its evolutions, meaning players will need to gather more than Candy.

So, if you’re looking to evolve Porygon into Porygon2 and Porygon-Z in Pokemon Go, here’s how to do it.

How to get Porygon2 and Porygon-Z in Pokemon Go

To evolve Porygon into Porygon2 in Pokemon Go, you’ll need 50 Porygon Candy and an Upgrade. Then, you can evolve Porygon2 into Porygon-Z with 100 Candy and a Sinnoh Stone.

Once you get the required items, make sure you choose the best Porygon you have by checking its stats with the appraisal feature and hit the ‘Evolve’ button to get its evolutions.

To get more Porygon Candy, we recommend using Pinap and Silver Pinap Berries when catching Porygon in the wild. Keep an eye on your calendar since Porygon will get its own Community Day Classic event on January 20, 2024. That’s a great opportunity to stock up.

On the other hand, if you’re wondering how to get an Upgrade and a Sinnoh Stone, we’ve got you covered.

How to get an Upgrade in Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go players can spin PokeStops and Gym Photo Discs to get an Upgrade, although the chances of getting one through this method are very low. Spinning PokeStops seven days in a row gives players a special streak bonus that has a guaranteed evolution item, but this reward is completely random.

On the other hand, some Pokemon Go events feature Timed Research with Upgrades as rewards. The Porygon Community Day Classic will feature one on January 20, 2024.

How to get a Sinnoh Stone in Pokemon Go

To obtain Sinnoh Stones, Pokemon Go players can try one of these methods:

It’s worth noting that Sinnoh Stones are part of the reward pool in all the listed activities, but it’s not guaranteed you’ll get one. You might need to try these methods a few times before getting one to evolve Porygon2 into Porygon-Z.

On the other hand, players will be able to get Sinnoh Stones by completing Timed Research tasks during the Porygon Community Day Classic on January 20, 2024.

And there you have it! Now you can stock up on Porygon Candy and evolution items to get Porygon2 and Porygon-Z. For more Pokemon content, check some of our other guides:
