Pokemon GO: How To Get King's Rock | Evolve Poliwhirl Into Politoed, Slowpoke Into Slowking

"Just can't wait to be king"

Pokemon GO's evolution can be as simple as using the required amount of candy, but often rarer evolutions will require an evolution item.

These are consumables that can allow you to not only fill out your Pokedex but also unlock some impressively powerful creatures.

One such item, the King's Rock, can evolve Poliwhirl into Politoed or Slowbro into Slowking, and others too, so it's worth grabbing one.

Here's how to do just that.

Pokemon GO: How To Get A King's Rock

There are a few ways to get a King's Rock, but none are guaranteed.

That means you'll want to complete as many of these tasks as possible - especially since you can only use it once.

Field Research

Arguably the easiest method of earning a King's Rock, you'll want to spin Pokestops wherever possible.

Each offers a 1% chance of an evolution item, including a King's Rock.

You'll up your chances by spinning Pokestops for seven days in a row, too!

Go Battle League Reward

Speaking of PvP, try competing in the Go Battle League for a chance to earn a King's Rock as a mystery item.

How To Find More Special Evolution Items

Want to evolve more unique Pokemon? Some Pokemon in the game can't be caught unless you use a special evolution item.

You'll need a King's Rock for Politoed and Slowking, a Sun Stone for Bellossom and Sunflora, the Dragon Scale for Kingdra, a Metal Coat for Scizor and Steelix, Plus Up-Grade for Porygon2.
