In the Tyrogue Three-Way Evolution, Does Special Defense or Special Attack Matter At All?

0 votes

It's because I keep hatching Tyrogues, and I haven't gotten one yet where its nature is defense+. I'm trying to get Hitmonchan. However, a lot of the natures are Special Defense+, so I was hoping that that may work.
So, my question is whether the Special Defense/Special Attack matters in Tyrogue's evolution split thing at all.

No. only attack and defense matter. The Hitmon family evolutions have identical sp.atk and sp.def stats. While a new evolution may be introduced with this, currently only attack and defense factor into a successful evolution. An adamant/jolly nature with some iron defense boosts can usually succeed in producing a Hitmonchan if it has respectable defense ivs.

According to the Pokedex nope. SpAtk and SpDef don't play a part in its evolution. Just as long as its Def is higher than its Atk then you should be good.
