Ever since it’s release, Pokemon GO trainers were trying to figure out if you can control Pokemon move set while evolving your Pokemon.
For that reason, TheSilphRoad community has gathered data of over 10,000 evolutions over the course of four months, to try and figure out if there is a way to know what move-set a Pokemon gets post evolution.
|Pre-evolution Quick Move||No|
|Pre-evolution Charge Move||No|
|Trainer’s Choice of Team||No|
|Pokemon’s Level (approximated using Stardust power-up cost)||No|
|Lucky Egg active during evolution||No|
|Highest IV category||No|
|Pokemon has perfect IVs in Attack, Defense, or Stamina (Separately)||No|
|Pokemon has any perfect IV||No|
|Pokemon has all perfect IVs||No|
As can be seen in the chart above, no correlation was found between all the factors examined and the resulting move-set post evolution.
The graph below, by TheSilphRoad, illustrates the distribution and frequency of post evolution move-sets and the results are clearly random.
So, there you have it. Next time you evolve your Pokemon don’t think about it too much. Just cross your fingers and hope for the best Pokemon move set. Hopefully not get what I got for my Gyarados :/
