• Hi all
    Just a notice, we recently discovered that someone got into a moderator account and started hard deleting a load of key and legacy threads...around 150 threads have been lost dating back to 2007 and some weeks ago so we can't roll the forums back.
    Luckily no personal data could be accessed by this moderator, and we've altered the permissions so hard deleting isn't possible in the future
    Sorry for any inconvenience with this and sorry for any lost posts.

Best evolution level in Pokemon S&S

Hi Everyone,

I have a question about when I should evolve my pokemons to get the strongest pokemon.

1. Do they get stronger when you wait with evolving your Pokemons or vice versa; evolving them when that is possible.

2. Why would you wait with evolving your Pokemon? So that you can get a particular move earlier? Or are there more reasons why I should wait?

3. What else can I do to make my Pokemon stronger besides letting them grow in levels?

4. How do I get the strongers Pokemon if waiting with evolving doesn't help?

I hope that someone is able to give me some advice. It information which I can't find on the internet.

Greetings, Joost

The only reason to not evolve them is to let them learn a cool move earlier. Since this is a case by case basis, it's best to look up the move learn information of the pokémon in question in the pokédex to make a good decision. As for bringing out their full potential, well that is what EV training is for :)


Delaying for moves isn't really a thing anymore, because you get a free move reminder thats always up, and a lot of the major moves you want are also hidden as a starter move
