Button Candy

Candy is a consumable, Pokémon-related resource that can be used to power up and evolve Pokémon. Candy is acquired by capturing Pokémon (3 for first evolution form, 5 for second evolution form, 10 for last evolution form), or by hatching eggs (various amounts).

UsageEdit

Pokémon power-upEdit

Candies are used to power up Pokémon, which may cost from 1 to 15 pieces of candy, depending on what level certain Pokémon is.

Pokémon evolutionEdit

Candies can be also used to evolve Pokémon that are capable of evolving. Evolving a Pokemon can cost 12 to 400 pieces of candy.

SourcesEdit

The type of candy the player receives is specific to the Pokémon. There are several ways to obtain candy for each Pokémon:

TypesEdit

Each evolutionary line has its own candy type. There are currently 152 different types of candy. Each one represents the base form and is identified by its primary and secondary colors.
