Evolution List

If looking for a specific Pokémon's evolution method, press Ctrl+F (or Cmd-F on a Mac) and enter the Pokémon's name to search for it on the page. Note that evolutions for regional variants (Alolan/Galarian forms) of Pokémon are listed separately, as some of them have different evolutions or evolution requirements than their original forms; thus, if wondering how to evolve a Galarian Meowth, you should search for Galarian Meowth rather than just Meowth.

Evolutions are split into three main types: level-up evolutions, which happen when a Pokémon has just gained a level and can be canceled if the player so desires by pressing B during the evolution; player-induced evolutions, which require the player to specifically do something to this Pokémon to evolve it immediately, which cannot be canceled; and special evolutions, introduced in Sword and Shield, triggered by other actions. This page lists all level-up evolutions first, then all player-induced evolutions, and then special evolutions.

If an evolution in the list has something in parentheses after it, that means that the method will only evolve the Pokémon if the condition in the parentheses is also met.
