In the world of Pokémon, there are a lot of debates. Some people say that you should evolve your pikachu as soon as possible to get an advantage in battle. Others say you should never do it because it’s not worth the effort for such little gain. This article will discuss when evolution is appropriate and what benefits are associated with evolving pikachu at different levels.
The Evolution Advantage: What’s the Point?
Pikachu is a little like Game of Thrones. You know, when Daenerys Targaryen refused to have her dragons come out and play because it would diminish their power? Well we’re all on Team Dany in this analogy I guess. The same thing happens with evolution if you evolve your pikachu too early or at too low level – they’ll lose that initial sparkle, and won’t be able to compete against other higher-leveled evolved creatures. However, there are some benefits which can outweigh any downside associated with evolving pikachu prematurely. For instance..
One advantage offered by evolution is an increase in CP (Combat Power). If your pikachu evolves at level 28, they’ll gain an extra 100 CP over a regular Pikachu. So this might be the way to go if you’re looking for that last little bit of power before heading into battle with other trainers or taking on any of the game’s gyms.
One disadvantage associated with evolution is it can also lower your chances when capturing wild creatures. When attempting to capture a new pokemon in Pokemon Go, there will always be a “capture bar” which tells how difficult it will be to catch them (the higher up on the bar – e.g., touching halfway between its left and right sides- means faster). If your pikachu has not evolved yet, however, then their capture bar will appear at the bottom of the screen, and you don’t have to worry about accuracy.
To evolve or not to evolve: that’s always been an ongoing question for many Pokémon fans since the very first game. But now with the release of Pokémon Go, there’s a whole other level to this question as well – especially when it comes to one of the most popular and powerful creatures in the franchise: Pikachu!
What is your opinion on evolution? Is it worth evolving pikachu once they reach a certain CP (Combat Power) level or does that take away from their individual strengths? Or should we continue capturing all those wild pokemon and just evolve our favorites later on down the line? Share your thoughts below!
In order for players who are new to Pokemon GO to explore different types of electric-type pokemon, some people recommend not evolving their pikachu until after catching at least two more electric type pokemon. However, others recommend evolving pikachu when they reach a certain CP level.
The better move is to have the patience to catch two more electric-type pokemon, or evolve your favorite at the appropriate CP level before making any hasty decisions about which other ones you want in your team.
