Pokemon Go Tips: How to guarantee your Pokémon evolve to over 1,000 CP

If you wanna be the very best Pokemon trainer your Pokemon team must be compose of badass squad.

Now that we're playing the game for several weeks now, Pokemon trainers are reaching higher and higher levels, Pokémon you'll be meeting at Gyms are going to be getting tougher. Basically, if you rock up to an enemy Gym with nothing over 1000 CP, you're probably going to have a hard time taking it.

Fortunately, there's a website called Pokémon Go Toolkit to calculate the minimum CP a Pokémon that help to ensure its final evolutionary form is over 1,000 CP.

Here's the full list, which was calculated by Reddit user Kyurun.


How accurate is the list? Sam Haysom author from Mashable tested out the Pokémon Go Toolkit, which Kyurun used as the basis for the calculations, to find out.

Here's what the calculator said our 630 CP Drowzee would evolve into.




The tool predicted that Drowzee's evolved form (Hypno) would be between 1310 and 1316 CP.

And here's what happened when we evolved him.


The result is close enough, but it's four CP out of the range predicted. So why is that? As Kyurun notes in their Reddit post, the list is only meant as an indication because "the website might not be 100% accurate."

"For more accurate results," writes Kyurun, "refer to an IV calculator".

This is where things get a bit complicated. Basically, each Pokémon has its own "individual values" (IVs) which determine how strong it is. So while every Drowzee will have the same "base values," each individual Drowzee will have its own individual values (Attack, Defence, and Stamina, all scored out of 15) on top of that which determine its strength in battle (and, ultimately, how high its CP will be when it evolves).

Chances are our Drowzee's IVs weren't the best, which might have been why it evolved into a slightly weaker Hypno than predicted.

Although a Pokémon's IVs aren't displayed in the game, there are tools to work them out.

The two Drowzees above are a good example of the subtle differences between individual Pokémon. Although the one on the right has a slightly higher CP, for instance, it also has a lower HP and requires more Stardust to power up.

When you put both Drowzees through the IV calculator, the one on the left comes out on top.

All of which is a long-winded way of saying that while the 1,000 CP evolution chart above seems fairly accurate, it won't be completely spot-on because IVs make everything a little more complicated.

What's the importance of IVs?

A Pokemon with even 30 IVs in speed may be outsped by something that can severely threaten it, for example. A Pokemon with 0 IVs in defense and HP are not going to take hits anywhere near as well as a Pokemon with higher IVs in those stats.

Ultimately, your dream Pokémon to evolve would have a super high CP and the best IV stats — that Pokémon might not be easy to find, though.
