Pokémon Go has taken the world by storm. The augmented reality mobile game combines the classic world of Pokémon with real-life locations, allowing players to capture, battle and train Pokémon on their travels. One of these Pokémon is Wurmple, a bug-type species. To evolve your Wurmple into either a Silcoon or Cascoon requires careful planning and knowledge – here are some tips to help you on your way.
In order for your Wurmple to evolve into either Silcoon or Cascoon, it must be at least level 7 in Pokémon Go. If you’re having difficulty finding Wurmple in the wild, you can also try hatching them from eggs which are usually available from PokéStops. Once your Wurmple reaches level 7, it’s time to decide how you want it to evolve.
Evolution into either a Silcoon or Cascoon is determined by chance when your Wurmple levels up beyond level 7. Unfortunately there is no known way of influencing this deciding factor; therefore, if you’re after a specific evolution then it’s best to stock up on enough candies and restart the app if necessary until you get what you want.
Anyone looking for an edge in training their Wurmple should remember that its type – Bug – is weak against Rock types as well as Fire and Flying types. Make use of this knowledge by taking advantage of any nearby gyms where defending Rock-type Pokémon will be easily accessible; potentially giving you bonus experience points when attacking with your Wurmple.
