The most common type of evolution is when a Pokémon evolves if they are at least a certain level upon level up. For example, Charmander will evolve into Charmeleon at level 16. If the evolution is cancelled, the Pokémon will attempt to evolve again on subsequent level-ups. The Pokémon evolved through this method will not be listed here as the list would be excessively long. The levels required for Pokémon to evolve can be found on each Pokémon's page.


Along with needing a specific level to evolve, certain evolutions can only take place if the Pokémon is a specific gender.


Certain pokemon need it to be a specific time of day. Some also have to evolve with high happiness




Some Pokémon evolve when they level up while knowing a certain move.


Some evolutions take place if the Pokémon levels up in a specified area, whether this area is near a certain block or within a certain biome.

Held Item


  • Mantyke evolves into Mantine if it levels up while a Remoraid is in the player's party.
  • When Nincada evolves into Ninjask, a Shedinja will also spawn in the player's party if the party has an empty slot and the player's inventory contains a normal Poké Ball.
  • Tyrogue evolves into one of three Pokémon at level 20 depending on the relationship between its Attack and Defense stats.

Several evolutions are triggered by trading a Pokémon in a trade machine. Some of these trade evolutions require the Pokémon to be holding an item while being traded, while others do not. If an item is required to trigger the evolution, it will be consumed after the evolution takes place.

Evolution stones

Certain Pokémon evolve when certain evolution stones are used on them. The item will be used up as the evolution starts; if the evolution is canceled, the item will be wasted. Pokémon that evolve with evolution stones have very different level-up movepools than their evolutions, meaning that several moves may become unavailable for the Pokémon if evolved at a lower level, and other moves may be unavailable if evolved too late.


The following available Pokémon have evolutions that are not yet available in Pixelmon.
