Since its launch, Pokemon GO has introduced various unique ways of evolving Pocket Monsters to enhance their strength and complete the Pokedex. One such method is the Adventure Together to Evolve system, which offers players an alternative way to evolve their Pokemon by walking and exploring together with their Buddy Pokemon.

When Pokemon GO was first released, the process of evolving Pocket Monsters was quite simple. Players only had to feed their Pokemon candies to evolve them to their next stage. However, as more of these creatures were added to the game, the evolutionary requirements also became more complex. Some require items or trading to evolve, whereas some of the others only evolve at specific times of the day.

To address these unique cases, the Adventure Together system was introduced, along with the Buddy mechanic. Here is everything you need to know about these unique Pokemon and how to evolve them using the Adventure Together mechanic.

Although evolving some Pokémon in Pokemon GO can be more complicated than simply feeding them candies, the Adventure Together requirements are pretty straightforward. Some Pokémon require more than just candies to evolve, so they need to become your Buddy and complete certain tasks.

Once your Buddy completes these tasks, they'll be able to evolve with the help of some Pokemon GO candy. The quests you'll need to accomplish with your Buddy can vary widely depending on the Pokemon you've selected. However, the first step is to make your chosen creature your Buddy. Below is a list of all these Pocket Monsters and their evolution process.

Evolving Eevee to Sylveon

In order to evolve Eevee into Sylveon, you must first designate Eevee as your Buddy and obtain 70 hearts. You'll also need to collect 25 Eevee candies.

Gain Pokemon GO hearts by following these activities with your Buddy Eevee:

  • Walking together for 5 km
  • Taking a photo of Eevee
  • Playing with Eevee (achieved by rubbing its head until a heart appears while taking a photo)
  • Giving it treats (either through the Treat option or by feeding berries when taking a photo)
  • Using it in a gym battle
  • Spinning a PokeStop that you haven't visited before.

It may require patience, but if you earn hearts daily, it won't be long until you have a Sylveon.

Evolving Eevee to Espeon or Umbreon

If you haven't used it yet, you can employ the Pokemon GO naming trick to evolve Eevee into either Espeon or Umbreon, but this trick can only be used once. Before evolving, name your Eevee “Tamao” to get an Umbreon, or name it “Sakura” to evolve it into Espeon.

If you've already used it, you'll have to walk with Eevee for 10 kilometers before evolving it. When you evolve Eevee, it will turn into Espeon if it's daytime or Umbreon if it's nighttime. You'll also need to gather 25 pieces of Eevee candy to evolve Eevee into either Umbreon or Espeon.


Evolving Pancham to Pangoro

To evolve Pancham into Pangoro, you must first select Pancham as your Pokemon GO Buddy and then capture 32 Dark-type Pocket Monsters. Additionally, you'll also need to feed it 50 Pancham candy.

To evolve Spritzee into Aromatisse, you should activate one incense while Spritzee is designated as your Buddy. Additionally, you'll also be required to use 50 Spritzee candies.

To evolve Swirlix into Slurpuff, you must feed your Buddy Swirlix a total of 25 berries. Additionally, you'll also require 50 Swirlix candies.
