Pokémon evolution guide

Below is a list of Pokémon grouped into their evolutionary chains for easy browsing. The charts also specify the conditions by which they evolve. Note that for most conditional evolutions (such as Happiness), the Pokémon needs to level up once the condition is met in order to evolve. You can also filter by condition using the menu below right.

Also note, Alolan Forms from Pokémon Sun & Moon are listed in the Generation 7 section at the bottom of the page.

About Pokémon evolution

Evolution is a key part of the Pokémon games. Evolving Pokémon makes them stronger and often gives them a wider movepool. Several species of Pokémon are only obtainable through evolution.

There are several methods of evolution, with more variations being added with each game. In Red/Blue/Yellow, a Pokémon might evolve by training it to a certain level, applying an elemental stone, or trading via cable link.

In Gold/Silver/Crystal, additional methods were added, namely happiness level and trading with a held item. Later games added yet more based on things such as gender, time of day or after a certain move is learned.
