Pokémon GO developer Niantic has released an update today that will guarantee players a chance to acquire evolution stones, fans have been requesting this for a long time and this move is sure to please the community.
This update is a small one and its key element is that it will award a random evolution stone to the players, but only to those that complete their seven day streak to the pokestop.
Players who are not familiar with the pokestop streak, Pokémon Go gives a bonus to players that visit the Pokestop first in the day with additional XP, pokeballs and antidotes. If the players keep up with this first visit of the day for seven days, they would gain an extra bit of XP and potentially a few extra items.
Now these extra items will contain a guaranteed evolution stone. But why is there so much hype about an evolution stone?
Well evolution stone is somewhat a hot item in Pokémon GO and are very difficult to earn, evolution stones are the key to evolving certain Pokémon in the mobile version.
Unlike some Pokémon that simply evolve after being injected with a certain amount of Pokémon candy, a selective few most of which belong to generation 2 require evolution stone.
Obviously only dedicated players will be able to earn the 7 day streak bonus. Unlike certain lazy ones that catch Pokémon in their own room or back yard, well bad news for you. Now you’ll have to get out if you need an evolution stone.
Unless you somehow got your house to become a Pokestop in which case you should tell me your address, I really need a kingdra! just kidding.
Pokémon GO is going to be updated to version 0.59.1 for Android and 1.29.1 for iOS devices. So get the update now and evolve those Gen-2 Pokémon.
