Pokémon Go Gen 3 update – How do you evolve Wurmple and is it like the evolution of Eevee? All you need to know
POKEMON Go recently released 50 Generation 3 Pokémon around the world for us to catch.
Curiously, this also includes the humble Wurmple and its evolutions - but how do you get your worm to evolve into a Cascoon or a Silcoon? Here's what you need to know.
How do you evolve a Wurmple in Pokémon Go?
In order to evolve your Wurmple you need to collect 12 Wurmple candy - it will then evolve into either a Cascoon or Silcoon.
After collecting 50 more Wurmple candy, they evolve into a Dustox and Beautifly respectively.
In a way this evolution is similar to Eevee's, although, ultimately it seems a little more difficult to track down exactly how to evolve your Pokémon into the evolution you prefer.
The gender of your Wurmple does not effect its evolution and neither does the time of day.
Does a Wurmple evolve like Eevee?
In Pokémon Go, Eevee's evolution into Flareon, Jolteon or Vaporeon could be determined by giving your Eevee the respective nickname.
Unfortunately this is not the case with Wurmple and nicknames have no effect.
At the moment it appears that Wurmples evolve randomly in Pokémon Go which means you need to catch as many as you can to get the evolution you want.
