Evolving Pokemon in Pokemon GO generally involves the same process for each of them. There are, however, a few Pokemon that are exceptions to the norm. One such Pokemon is Wurmple, as it has two different evolutionary paths that ultimately end with Cascoon or Dustox. You may be wondering exactly how it works, so we put together this guide to help you out. Here’s how to evolve Wurmple into Silcoon, Cascoon, Beautifly, and Dustox in Pokemon GO.
How to Evolve Wurmple into Silcoon, Beautifly, Cascoon, Dustox
To evolve Wurmple into Silcoon or Cascoon in Pokemon GO, you will need 12 Wurmple Candy. It will then cost 50 Candy to evolve Silcoon to Beautifly and Cascoon to Dustox.
A common question is whether or not one can influence Wurmple’s evolution into Silcoon or Cascoon, as you can with Eevee evolutions. Unfortunately, it is impossible to force Silcoon or Cascoon for Wurmple’s first evolution in Pokemon GO. The outcome is entirely random. In other words, the gender, time of day, size, and any other stat you can think of does not influence the outcome of Wurmple evolutions.
When you pull up a Wurmple in your PokeDex, you’ll notice a question mark next to the evolve button. However, you have a 50% chance to get either Silcoon or Cascoon, and the Candy requirements are not too demanding, so you should get the Pokemon you want after a few attempts.
Again, here are the possible Wurmple evolution paths in Pokemon GO:
- Wurmple -> Silcoon -> Beautifly
- Wurmple -> Cascoon -> Dustox
Now that you know the first outcome is random, it may be a good idea to stockpile a few Wurmple if you are after one of the four evolved Pokemon. That way, you can guarantee you’ll get exactly what you want at the end of the day.
