After a long wait Goomy, Sliggoo and Goodra have finally been added to Pokémon GO. But like so many before them, they come with new complications. You can't just press a few buttons and spend candies and end up with one of the best Dragon Pokémon in the game. No, you have to work on it this time. And the complicating factor is something brand new. So here's how to evolve Sliggoo into Goodra, starting with how to evolve Goomy into Sliggoo in Pokémon GO.
How to evolve Goomy into Sliggoo
The first part of Goomy's evolution line is as simple and easy as most of the others in Pokémon GO. To evolve Goomy into Sliggoo, all you need is 25 Goomy Candy. You get this by catching them, which can be quite difficult even during the Luminous Legends X event. Finding them will be difficult, but the reward is worth it, so use the tips we provide in the previously linked guide if you have need help finding more Candy. Of course, you can always throw a bunch of rare candies at it to do it faster. And you should, but there's one more thing to keep in mind.
How to evolve Sliggoo into Goodra
Evolving Sliggoo to Goodra is where things get interesting and more difficult. The cost is 100 Goomy Candy, so make sure you have it available before trying this. However, there is another requirement, with a newly added item offering a chance to incorporate aspects of the main series games. To evolve Sliggoo into Goodra, you must be within range of a Poké Stop with an active Rainy Lure Mod.
These are brand new items in Pokémon GO, added as part of the Luminous Legends X event. You get one from the Timed Research quest, so every player should have one available to them if they complete it. Otherwise, you'll either have to buy one or find one that another player used. Once near the active Rainy Lure, simply open the Sliggoo you wish to evolve and press the button. It will consume 100 Goomy Candy, but the reward will be a brand new Goodra to use in raids and PvP battles.
And that's how to evolve Goomy into Sliggoo in Pokémon GO.
