How to Get Up-Grade and What It Does – Pokemon GO
Eighty new Pokemon joined the Pokemon GO roster today, bringing with them some special new evolution items. One of which is the Up-Grade, a transparent device produced by Silph. Co. We’ll walk you through how to get Up-Grade, and exactly what it does.
First up, this item, like all the evolution items, can be obtained from Poke Stops. Simply arrive at a Stop, spin, and collect your rewards. You’ll most likely get the usual Poke Balls and Berries, but if you’re lucky, an Up-Grade will drop.
So what do you do with this item once you have it? Hopefully you have a Porygon, because the Up-Grade is needed to evolve it into Porygon2. You’ll still need the appropriate amount of candy, but this evolution item serves as an additional requirement. The Up-Grade doesn’t evolve any other Pokemon at this time, but we’ll be sure to update you if that changes.
Other evolution items include the Dragon Scale, Sun Stone, King’s Rock, and Metal Coat. You can read more about those and what Pokemon they evolve over in our guide here.
