Pokémon GO – How to evolve Sliggoo into a Goodra (Goomy Evolution Line)

After a long wait Goomy, Sliggoo and Goodra were eventually added to Pokémon GO. But like so many before them, they come with new complications. You can’t just press a few buttons and spend some candy and end up with one of the best Dragon Pokémon in the game. No, you have to work for it this time around. And the complicating factor is something quite new. So here’s how to evolve Sliggoo into Goodra, starting with how to evolve Goomy into Sliggoo in Pokémon GO.

How to evolve Goomy in Sliggoo

The first part of the Goomy evolution line is as simple and easy as most of the others in Pokémon GO. To evolve Goomy into Sliggoo, all you need is 25 Goomy Candy. You get this by catching them though, which can be quite difficult even during the Luminous Legends X event. Finding them will be difficult, but the payoff is well worth it, so use the tips we provide in the previously linked guide if you are need help finding more Candy. Of course, you can always throw a bunch of rare candy in there to make it faster. And you should, but there’s one more thing to keep in mind.

How to evolve Sliggoo into Goodra

Evolving Sliggoo to Goodra is where things get interesting and more difficult. The cost is 100 Goomy Candy, so make sure you have it available before you try. There is another requirement, however, with a newly added element providing a chance to incorporate aspects of games from the main series. To evolve Sliggoo into Goodra, it must either be raining or be within range of a Poké Stop with an active Rainy Lure mod.

These are all new items in Pokémon GO, added as part of the Luminous Legends X event. You get one in the Timed Research Quest, so every player should have one available if they complete it. Otherwise, you’ll either need to buy one or search for one that another player has used. Once near the active Rainy Lure, simply open the Sliggoo you want to evolve and press the button. This will consume 100 Goomy Candy, but the reward will be a brand new Goodra for use in raids and PvP battles.
