Players may notice some new items in the Pokémon GO shop. On sale now are the Mossy Lure, Glacial Lure and Magnetic Lure which can be affixed to Poké Stops and will attract different species of Pokémon. Each is currently sold for 200 Poké Coins.
They also serve another purpose however; they can trigger evolution in certain species of Pokémon!
- Mossy Lure will allow Eevee to evolve into Leafeon
- Glacial Lure will allow Eevee to evolve into Glaceon
- Magnetic Lure will allow Nosepass to evolve into Probopass and Magneton into Magnezone
This is a new method of evolution in the game and also is the first time these four species will be obtainable! Go out there and get evolving! We’ll update this post on what species the lures attract once more research is done.
UPDATE: A full list of changes has been added to the official site, which we’ve included below.
- Additional Sinnoh Pokémon are now available to catch in the wild and hatch from Eggs.
- Earth Power is a powerful Ground-type Charged Attack that could lower your opponent’s defense in Trainer Battles.
- Certain Pokémon recently arrived from the Sinnoh region will know Earth Power.
- Other Pokémon that could know Earth Power include Nidoqueen, Nidoking, Aerodactyl, Camerupt, and Claydol.
- Glacial Lure Modules, Mossy Lure Modules, and Magnetic Lure Modules can be obtained in the in-game shop and will be available later this season as rewards for completing new Special Research tasks.
- These Lure Modules attract local Pokémon as well as bonus Pokémon based on the type of lure.
- Glacial Lure Modules attract certain Pokémon that love the cold, such as Water- and Ice-Type Pokémon.
- Mossy Lure Modules attract certain Pokémon that love to frolic among the leaves, such as Bug-, Grass-, and Poison-Type Pokémon.
- Magnetic Lure Modules attract certain Pokémon that are drawn to electromagnetic forces, such as some Electric-, Steel-, and Rock-type Pokémon.
- When Trainers are within range of a PokéStop with an active lure of the appropriate type, and they can successfully spin its Photo Disc, Evolution of Magneton and Nosepass will be enabled, as well as certain Evolutions of Eevee.
- You can choose whether or not to proceed with these special Evolutions on the Pokémon’s detail screen.
Let us know what you’re most looking forward to catch with the newly available Pokémon! Without a doubt I can tell you I’ll be looking for a Cherrim! Feel free to discuss more in our Discord server.
