Pokémon Go’s Evolution Event started today and now is the best time to grab any evolution items, like Sinnoh and Unova Stones.
Until Dec. 12 at 4 p.m. ET, special Field Research Tasks that reward evolution items will be able to be grabbed from PokéStops. Onix, Eevee, Roselia, and Burmy will also spawn more frequently in the wild and Lickitung, Scyther, Togetic, and Ralts will be featured in raids.
To make the most of this event, grab as many Roselia, Ralts, Scyther, and Togetic as you can. Roserade and Scyther are both great grass- and bug-type attackers respectively. Gardevoir and Togekiss top the charts as fairy-type attackers as well.
XP from evolving Pokémon will also be doubled, so if you have a lot of Pokémon that have low Candy costs to evolve, like Caterpie, you can mass evolve those while using a Lucky Egg for some good gains.
Burmy will also be spawning Shiny for the first time.
