Pokémon GO: Update with special Lure Modules, Gen V, Clamperl
In [[Pokémon GO]], the only way to evolve Pokémon is to press the "Evolve" button on that Pokémon's profile page. All Pokémon require the player spend a specific amount of their own Candy to evolve them, but some have additional requirements.
 
TheSome mostevolutions commonrequire additionalan requirementitem isin anaddition itemto the Candy cost. All evolutions that require an [[evolution-inducing held item]] (except {{p|Feebas's}} evolutionand into Milotic{{p|Clamperl}}) or a [[Sun Stone|Sun]], [[Shiny Stone|Shiny]] or [[Dusk Stone]] to evolve in the core series require an item to be spent in Pokémon GO, in addition to the Candy cost. For evolutions introduced in Generation II, the item required is the same as in the core series;. forAll [[List of Pokémon with cross-generational evolutions|cross-generational evolution]]s introduced in [[Generation IV,]] (except location-based evolutions) require a [[Sinnoh Stone]] isto requiredevolve. insteadAll evolutions introduced in Generation V that require an evolutionary stone in the core series (except a Sun Stone) require a [[Unova Stone]] in Pokémon GO; Generation V evolutions that require a Sun Stone in the core series also require it in Pokémon GO.
 
{{p|Feebas}} cannot be evolved until the player has walked with it as the [[Buddy Pokémon]] for 20 km. This requirement is noted under the "Evolve" button.
 
Pokémon with location-based evolutions in the core series games normally require the player to be in range of a special [[Lure Module]] in order to evolve. {{p|Nosepass}} and {{p|Magneton}} require a [[Magnetic Lure Module]] to evolve, while Eevee normally requires a [[Glacial Lure Module]] or [[Mossy Lure Module]] to evolve into {{p|Glaceon}} or {{p|Leafeon}}, respectively. Evolutions that are region-specific in the core series games are not possible in Pokémon GO; the evolved form can only be obtained by catching it or trading for it.
 
For some species of Pokémon with branched evolutions, there are multiple "Evolve" buttons, allowing the player to choose which Pokémon to evolve into. The different buttons may have different requirements, such as one button requiring an item while another does not.
 
Despite having branched evolutions, {{p|Eevee}}, {{p|Tyrogue}}, {{p|Wurmple}}, and {{p|WurmpleClamperl}} only have a single button,. withSome of them have no indication of which Pokémon it will evolve into in most cases.
*Normally, if the player evolves Eevee, it will randomly evolve into one of {{p|Vaporeon}}, {{p|Jolteon}}, and {{p|Flareon}}. However, if the player meets a special requirement, the player can influence its evolution.

**Once per nickname, if an Eevee has one of several special [[nickname]]s when evolved, it will evolve into a specific Pokémon. If the Eevee is nicknamed "{{DL|Eevee brothers|Rainer}}", "{{DL|Eevee brothers|Sparky}}", "{{DL|Eevee Brothers|Pyro}}", "[[Sakura]]", "{{DL|Kimono Girl|In the anime|Tamao}}", "{{DL|Eevee users|Leafeon User Linnea|Linnea}}", or "{{DL|Eevee users|Glaceon User Rea|Rea}}", it will evolve into Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, or Glaceon, respectively. Once the player has evolved an Eevee using one of these nicknames, that nickname will no longer have any impact on Eevee's evolution.
**If Eevee is currently the [[Buddy Pokémon]] and has obtained at least 2 Candy for the player, it will evolve into {{p|Espeon}} during Day Mode or {{p|Umbreon}} during Night Mode.
*The Pokémon {{p|Tyrogue}} evolves into depends on its highest {{IV}}. It will evolve into {{p|Hitmonlee}} if it is Attack, {{p|Hitmonchan}} if it is Defense, or {{p|Hitmontop}} if it is HP. Unless there is a tie, the Evolution button will indicate which Pokémon it will evolve into.If there is a tie, the tie is broken randomly.
*{{p|Wurmple}} evolves into either {{p|Silcoon}} or {{p|Cascoon}} at random.
*{{p|Clamperl}} evolves into either {{p|Huntail}} or {{p|Gorebyss}} at random.
