  • If you are going to shop and transfer, evolve Pokemon, you might want to wait since few server problems are resolved.
  • Pokemon of Generation 1 can now learn new moves, which they were unable to learn before.
  • If you have Eevee, the name is as SAKURA to get the Espeon or name is as TAMAO to get the Umbreon once they evolve. The name works only once for each.
  • In order to evolve some Pokemon, you might need Special items like Metal Coat, Sun Stone, Dragon Scale, King’s Stone or Upgrade, which can be rare and available at Poker stops.
