How to evolve and maximize the potential of Grubbin in Pokemon GO

With the upcoming Grubbin Community Day for Pokemon GO just a day away, players are excitedly preparing for the event and looking for ways to evolve and maximize the potential of their Grubbin. In the main series games, evolving Grubbin into Charjabug was a daunting task due to its unique evolution requirement. However, in Pokemon GO, things are different.

To evolve Grubbin into Charjabug, players will need to catch a Grubbin during the Grubbin Community Day event, which will take place on September 23rd at 2 pm local time. After the event, finding Grubbin may become more difficult, but there are ways to increase the chances of encountering it. Grubbin spawns best in rainy weather, so players should keep an eye out for rainy conditions. Additionally, using Lure Modules and Incenses can further increase the spawn rate of Grubbin.

Once players have caught a Grubbin, they will need to collect 25 Grubbin candies to evolve it into Charjabug. To make this process easier, players can use Pinap Berries, which double the amount of candy obtained when catching a Pokemon. This will help players accumulate the necessary candies more quickly.

Evolution doesn't stop at Charjabug, though. To evolve Charjabug into Vikavolt, players will need to collect 100 Grubbin candies and find a Magnetic Lure Module. The Magnetic Lure Module is a rare item, but players can purchase it from the in-game shop if they have enough Pokecoins.

Once players have all the requirements, they can evolve their Charjabug into Vikavolt by tapping the “evolve” button on Charjabug's summary screen. Keep in mind that evolving Charjabug into Vikavolt does not require any additional candies.

It's worth noting that while Vikavolt may not currently be viable in competitive play or raid battles, the upcoming Grubbin Community Day event introduces a new Volt Switch attack for Vikavolt. This could potentially change the creature's viability, and it's recommended that players experiment with Vikavolt in the Battle League to see how it performs.

In conclusion, the Grubbin Community Day event provides an opportunity for players to evolve and maximize the potential of their Grubbin in Pokemon GO. By following the right strategies and taking advantage of the event bonuses, players can obtain a powerful Charjabug and potentially a formidable Vikavolt. Enjoy the event and happy hunting!
