How to Get Up-Grade and How to Use Up-Grade in Pokemon GO
Eighty new Pokemon joined the Pokemon GO roster as of the time of this writing, bringing with them some special, new evolution items. One of these special items 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 for your Pokemon within the game.
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. This is entirely randomized, of course. You can also purchase it with real world money, but if you don’t want to do that, the Stops are your best bet!
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 in order to achieve this, but this evolution item serves as an additional requirement. Just a little something extra you’ll need. 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.
That’s it for Up-Grade, though! That’s how you get more Upgrades and what they do for your Pokemon in Pokemon GO. For more Pokemon GO tips, tricks, and guide, be sure to check out our wiki.
