A psychic cat/fox like Espeon sounds kind of cool in theory, though I have to admit that my concern is that it’d take control of my thoughts and force me to rub its belly until I die. Then again, I’d probably do that without any coercion, so what the heck, let’s get ourselves a psychic cat/fox.

Espeon, just like all of the other Eevee evolutions, doesn’t occur naturally in the wild. The only way you can obtain one is by evolving an Eevee. Evolving an Eevee into an Espeon is a similar process to evolving it into an Umbreon, though with a few key differences. In both cases, the first order of business is to become close friends with your Eevee, so go ahead and make it your buddy, then take out on a long walk with you.

Once you’ve walked at least a cumulative 10km with your Eevee, then you’re on track for evolution. All you have to do is feed it the usual 25 Eevee candy, though if you want an Espeon, you specifically have to do it during daytime hours. If you’re not sure what exactly constitutes “daytime hours,” just try to do it around noon-ish. As long as you’ve walked the 10km and trigger the evolution during the day, you’re guaranteed to have a proud new get espeon pokemon go, ready and willing to probe your thoughts with its invasive psychic powers.

If you’re in a rush, you can also use the special nickname method to guarantee your Eevee evolves into an Espeon without all the walking around and bonding. All you need to do is give your Eevee the nickname “Sakura,” and then evolve it like normal with 25 candies. If it has the nickname, it’s guaranteed to be an Espeon. Remember, though, this trick only works once; one Eevee, one “Sakura,” one Espeon. No do-overs.

According to the PokéDex, the semisolid liquid shell that surrounds a Solosis’ physical body is completely airtight. This means that a Solosis could, in theory, survive in just about any environment, no matter how hostile, including the vacuum of space. If it weren’t for its impressive Psychic abilities, it wouldn’t even be able to interact with the world outside its bubble. Of course, whether you decide to interact with a Solosis yourself may depend on its coloration. On that note, can you catch shiny Solosis in Pokémon GO?

As time goes on, Niantic gradually adds more shiny variants to the Pokémon that already exist in the Pokémon GO PokéDex. Pokémon don’t usually release alongside their shiny variants; rather, those colorations are added to the game in time with special events or milestones. Solosis is due to be the star of tonight’s Spotlight Hour from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM local time, and considering it’s the first Spotlight Hour of 2022, not to mention the fact that Solosis was added to the game a good two years ago, it’d certainly be a good time to get that shiny variant on the books.

Unfortunately, it seems it’s not Solosis’ turn to be shiny just yet. Solosis’ shiny variant has not yet been added to the Pokémon GO PokéDex, and it’s a little too short notice for it to pop up during the spotlight hour, so it looks like we’re not getting shiny Solosis just yet.

As for when Solosis’ shiny variant will be added, it’s anyone’s guess. As I mentioned, Niantic doesn’t follow a hard and fast timetable for adding shiny variants to Pokémon GO; sometimes they’ll come in a couple of months, sometimes they’ll come in a couple of years. That said, Solosis was first added to the game as part of 2020’s Psychic Spectacular event, so if another Psychic type-themed event were to run in Pokémon GO, it may have a good chance of being added to the game yet. That particular event was also in March of 2020, and, well, it’ll be March again in two months, so maybe they’ll give Solosis the shiny treatment on its two-year anniversary?

Either way, keep your eyes peeled; when shiny Solosis is added to the game, you’ll be able to differentiate it by checking the little squiggly thing on top of its head.

Okay, I’m only going to go over this one more time, because people have trouble remembering it. Stalagmites are the big rocky or icy spikes that point up out of the ground, and stalactites are the big rocky or icy spikes that hang down from cave ceilings. It might help you remember the difference if you think of Bergmite; its spike faces up, and its name has “mite” in it. Stalagmite. Get it? Good. Now that the grammar lesson is out of the way, let’s focus on Bergmite. Specifically, is shiny Bergmite in Pokémon GO?

Bergmite, along with its evolved form Avalugg, were both added to the Pokémon GO PokéDex at the beginning of the Winter Holiday 2021 event that began earlier this month. Until the event ends at the end of the month, their spawn rate, along with the spawn rate of other Ice type Pokémon, is temporarily boosted, so it’s a good time to go looking for them. But of course, for some folks, hunting down new Pokémon isn’t worth it unless there’s a chance they can be shiny.

According to supplementary material, Mega Evolution arises in Pokémon who have forged an unbreakable bond with their partner trainers. This is why, based on what Zinnia says in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Rayquaza was the first Pokémon to undergo Mega Evolution, thanks to its bond with the civilization it protected. Of course, if you want your Pokémon to Mega Evolve, you gotta do a little more than hug it a few times a day. Here’s how to get Mega Energy in Pokémon GO.

Mega Evolution in Pokémon GO works not unlike regular evolution, except instead of Pokémon Candy, you need Mega Energy (which some folks also call “Mega Candy”). When you accumulate enough Mega Energy, you can visit a Pokémon’s details page and trigger their Mega Evolution, assuming it currently exists in the game’s PokéDex. They’ll remain Mega Evolved for exactly eight hours in real time, so make sure not to use your Mega Energy unless you know you have the whole day to play.

To get Mega Energy in Pokémon GO

Go for a walk with a previously Mega Evolved Pokémon as your Buddy

Much like evolution Candy, Mega Energy is classified based on the Pokémon it’s intended for. For example, if you want to Mega Evolve Venusaur, you need Venusaur Mega Energy. To obtain Mega Energy, there are a few potential avenues, but the fastest is clearing Mega Raids.

Every time you clear a Mega Raid, you’ll receive Mega Energy for the Pokémon that was battled. The faster you clear the Raid, the more energy you’ll get, so you’re incentivized to tackle it with a strong party and a group of friends.

Besides Raids, there are also certain Field Research Tasks that reward Mega Energy when completed. Tasks that specifically reward Mega Energy are usually reserved for special events, though there is one task, titled “Power up Pokémon 5 times,” that’s included in the regular Task rotation. If you clear that one, you’ll get 10 Mega Energy for Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Beedrill or Pidgeot.

Finally, once you Mega Evolve a Pokémon at least once, you can make that Pokémon your Buddy and go for a walk with them for a chance to randomly pick up some more Mega Energy. Don’t expect to get a lot from this; just a few units here and there.
