There are many different ways to evolve a Pokemon in Pokemon GO, one of them being through the use of Lure Modules. Typically, these items are used to attract Pokemon to a PokeStop for a short time. Since the game's initial release, some thematic Lure Modules have been added that will attract other types of Pokemon and even evolve some.
There are five total Pokemon that can evolve with the help of a Lure Module. Let's take a look at each, how many candies it'll cost, and more.
Pokemon That Evolve With A Rainy Lure
The Rainy Lure Module came to Pokemon GO in May 2021 and provides players with the way to evolve Sliggoo into the Pseudo-Legendary Pokemon, Goodra.
Previously, they needed to wait until it was raining in-game to do so, but they can now obtain Goodra by feeding Sliggoo 100 Goomy Candies while in range of an active Rainy Lure Module as well. Sliggoo first evolves from Goomy with the use of 25 Goomy candies.
Aside from enabling Sliggoo's evolution, a Rainy Lure can be used to attract Water-, Bug-, and Electric-type Pokemon.
Pokemon That Evolve With A Mossy Lure
Eevee has many evolutions, and is specifically known for them. Among them are two that require the use of a Lure Module.
The Normal-type can evolve into Leafeon, its Grass-type evolution, when fed 25 candies in range of a Mossy Lure Module.
This mimics the main series, where Eevee would evolve into Leafeon when leveled up near a Mossy Rock. In Pokemon GO, this Mossy Lure evolution is essentially the same mechanic.
Outside of being used to evolve Eevee into Leafeon, the Mossy Lure Module will attract mostly Grass-, Bug-, and Poison-type Pokemon.
Pokemon That Evolve With A Glacial Lure
Similarly, Eevee would evolve into the Ice-type Eeveelution, Glaceon, when Eevee was leveled up near an Ice Rock.
The equivalent in Pokemon GO is the Glacial Lure Module. An Eevee fed 25 candies in range of an active Glacial Lure will evolve into Glaceon.
Otherwise, Glacial Lure Modules will typically attract Ice- and Water-types.
Pokemon That Evolve With A Magnetic Lure
The final type of Lure Module that can be used to evolve Pokemon is the Magnetic Lure, which typically attracts Electric-, Steel-, and Rock-type Pokemon.
There are three Pokemon capable of evolving near a Magnetic Lure Module, which is a callback to the Special Magnetic Fields in the main games. These areas have high magnetic waves and are necessary to evolve the same Pokemon that use a Magnetic Lure Module.
Magneton -> Magnezone
The first Pokemon that can be evolved with the use of a Magnetic Lure is Magneton. This Steel/Electric-type initially evolves from Magnemite with the use of 25 candies.
It can then be evolved into Magnezone with the use of a Magnetic Lure and 100 candies.
Nosepass -> Probopass
Next up is Nosepass, a Rock-type from Gen III.
When near a Magnetic Lure, Nosepass becomes capable of evolving into the Steel/Rock-type Probopass from Gen IV. This takes 50 Nosepass candies, as well.
Charjabug -> Vikavolt
The final Magnetic Lure evolution is also the newest Lure-based evolution in the game (and most likely the last, based on the equivalent evolution methods in the main series).
This is Charjabug, a Bug/Electric-type from Gen VII. After evolving from Grubbin with the use of 25 candies, Charjabug can then evolve into Vikavolt with 100 more candies and an active Magnetic Lure Module.
How to Get Lure Modules in Pokemon GO
There are a few ways to obtain Lure Modules that are needed for these evolutions.
The first and most permanently-available method is to just buy them from the in-game shop. While a standard Lure Module is 100 Poke Coins, the specialty modules are a bit more expensive. Each one costs 180 Poke Coins.
It's worth noting that a player does not need to use their own Lure to evolve these Pokemon. Keeping an eye out for one that is active nearby is a good way to save some Poke Coins and still evolve a Pokemon. Search around to see if there are any active Glacial, Mossy, Rainy, or Magnetic Lures in the area to potentially use those first!
Some other ways to obtain specialty Lure Modules include:
- Shop bundles: some limited-time or 1 Poke Coin bundles will sometimes contain Lure Modules of different types
- Special Research: Lure Modules can sometimes be among the rewards for completing Special Research quests
- Collection Challenges: these limited-time challenges have Lures as a reward, on occasion
