The evolution process of Inkay may be a bit topsy-turvy, so here's what we know about getting your hands on malamar.

According to Pok√©mon GO releases more Pokemon from the sixth generation of games, Pokemon X and Y, many players wonder how the developer Niantic will incorporate the adorable Inkay squid and how to evolve the Inkay for Malamar. 

Although we do not expect malamar rival the best Pokemon in Pok√©mon GO , it certainly has a niche utility in the main series games and will undoubtedly wreak havoc in PvP battles.

The evolution process of Inkay is totally unique to main series games in that it involves turning the console upside down once you reach level 30. Of course, your Switch need to be in portable mode to do this on Pokemon Sword and Shield , but will that translate to the mobile game?

O Inkay is not available on Pokémon GO, but data revealed that it will be available soon. Like the generation 6 pokemon continue to be released, we hope to see the Inkay in a near future.

When he arrives, his Dark/Psychic typing suggests he would be commonly encountered at night. However, recent additions to Pokémon GO, like Scrafty and Frillish, were first made available as rewards GO Battle League before appearing in the overworld, so that could also be an option.

However, the Inkay evolution process can be a little more complicated.


Datamines has revealed that once it launches, players will be able to evolve Inkay by turning their phones upside down. We expect there will be a candy requirement as well, and we estimate that 50 Inkay candies will be enough.

It is important to note that data is not set in stone and any game mechanics or additions are subject to change. Once we know how to evolve Inkay for sure, we will update this guide with the requirements.

That's all there is to know about adding Inkay to Pok√©mon GO, but fans are also looking forward to more information about the evolution Eevee fan favorite, the fairy type sylveon, which was also introduced in Generation 6 and will likely be added to Pok√©mon GO with its own unique evolution method before long.
