Starters for Pokémon Gen 3

As there are Squirtle, Charmander and Bulbasaur in the Pokémon Gen 1 and Cyndaquil, Chikorita and Totodile in Gen 2, now there are Grass-type, Water-type and Fire-type starters in the Pokémon Gen 3. In gen 2, there was not a special use of the starters. Same is in the Gen 3. Starters are characteristically hard and can be kept out of the Pokémon eggs for really long periods.

How to Evolve Feebas into Milotic in Gen 3

Milotic is a water-type Pokémon that can also be considered as the Gyarados of Pokémon Gen 3. Milotic evolve from Feebas. It takes 100 feebas candy to evolve Milotic. In Gen 2, to evolve Eevee into Espeon, friendship is required, just like that same is required for Feebas to evolve into Milotic.

To evolve any Feebas into Milotic, you need to walk for 20 km with the specific one that you want to evolve. It is not like that you can walk any Feebas for 20 Km to evolve. For example, if you want to get a high IV milotic, you need to walk a high IV Feebas. Find below how you can do this:

  • First, tap on your “Avatar”
  • Next, tap on your “Buddy”
  • Now, at the bottom right, find and tap on the “Switch Button”
  • You need to confirm that you want to switch buddies. For that, Tap on “Yes”.
  • Choose the “Feebas” of your choice and walk with it for at least 20 KM
  • You need to collect “100 Feebas Candy” while walking. If you already have, then there is no need for more.
  • Now tap on “Feebas” and finally on “Evolve”. You have your Milotic now

How to Evolve Wrumple into Dustox and Beautyfly

Wrumple has split evolution just like in the Pokémon go Gen 1. Wrumple can be evolved into Silcoon or Cascoon. In Gen 1 you could get Jolteon, Flareon, and Vapareon by evolving an Eevee. And in Gen 2, Tyrogue can evolve into Hitmonchan or Hitmonlee and Hitmontop. There is a trainer name trick and day vs night trick to control one or all evolutions. Second stage evolutions are completely random with Wrumple. Here is how you can do this:

  • Select the Wrumple that you want to Evolve and tap on the Evolve
  • Repeat this to get Cascoon and Silcoon.
  • Now, whenever you have the opportunity, evolve Silcoon into Beautifly and Cascoon into Dustox.

How to Evolve Wailord and Altaria

Altaria is one of the baddest in the game. It is a Water-type dragon. And, Wailord is the biggest Pokémon in the Pokémon Go. Despite that, these are not as potent as Gyarados. To evolve Wailord and Altaria you need 400 candy. The best thing here is, no friendship is required. Means, you don’t need to make buddy before evolving.

Legendary Pokémon in Gen 3 Pokémon Go

With 8 new arrivals, Gen 3 almost has the total number of Gen 1 and 2 Legendary Pokémon. Along with this, there are few new Mythicals.

Legendary Titans

Generation 3 Pokémon has Legendary Titans just like Gen 1 and Gen 2 who had Legendary Birds and Legendary Beasts. As like in the other Gens, Titans are not based on the red/fire, blue/water or ice formula. In gen 3, there are some steel and some rock.

Just like Pokémon Go Gen 1 and Gen 2, when there were Dragonite, Snorlax, Blissey, and Tyranitar, now in Generation 3, there are also some amazing Pokémon in the game. Here are they:


It is very difficult to match the power of Tyranitar, but Metagorss can be considered the one that can do so. Metagrass is a Steel/Psychic type.
