Many players have collected 100s of Magnemite candies, but have still been left wondering How to get Magnezone in Pokemon GO.
In order to evolve a Magneton into a Magnezone, you will need to evolve your Magnezone inside the range of a Magnetic Lure Module. This will cost 100 Magnemite Candy.
Note: The Magnetic Lure Module does not have to belong to you, so one person could set up a module for an entire group to evolve their Magnetons.
How to Get Magnetic Lure Module in Pokemon GO
Magnetic Lures are not a common item, so you will not find them from spinning PokeStops. I’d love to say that there is some secret to getting the Lure, but there isn’t.
If you want to know how to evolve Magneton in Pokemon GO, the unfortunate answer is that you will have to spend $2, grind for a few days, or get very lucky.
The Shop sells Magnetic Lure Modules for 200 Coins apiece. This will cost you $0.99 per Lure, which isn’t much, but many players would rather not spend any money.
If you’re one of these players, then you can earn up to 50 Coins per day by holding Gyms.
You will want to choose Gyms that you can hold but are also active enough for someone to come along and knock your Pokemon out. Remember, you only get paid once your Pokemon is knocked out of the Gym.
Timed Research Events
Occasionally, there will be Timed Research tasks that offer the Magnetic Lure Module as a reward. So, if you’re not in a huge rush to get your Megnezone, you can always wait until you have one of these events.
Community Days are also a common occurrence, and it wouldn’t surprise anyone if Niantic had one dedicated to Magnemite, Magneton, and Magnezone soon.
PokeStops (Other Players)
As I mentioned above, you will not find Magnetic Lures by spinning PokeStops. However, you may find a PokeStop with a lure that another player has used.
For those of you that enjoy making friends, this would be the perfect opportunity to meet other Magnemite fans. (Comment below)
For the more introverted fans, perhaps a close friend has saved up enough coins for a Magnetic Lure and it’s time for you to use your powers of persuasion to convince them that they need a Magnezone.
Getting the Best Bang for Your Buck
Since Magnetic Lures are so few and far between, you shouldn’t waste them as soon as you get them. Instead, many players recommend saving up your Magnemite Candy until you have a few hundred.
They also recommend keeping Magnetons of various CP and strength, so that once you collect a Magnetic Lure, you can evolve them all at once and have a Magnezone for multiple GO Battle Leagues.
You can also plan this out with friends and other players, so you can all save up your Magnemite Candy together.
How Many Candies to Evolve Magnemite?
It only costs 25 Magnemite Candies to evolve a Magnemite into a Magneton. This doesn’t require anything special, no lures, no extra steps. Simply give your Magnemite the 25 Candy and it will evolve into a Magneton.
How Many Candies to Evolve Magneton?
To evolve a Magneton, you will need 100 Magnemite Candy.
You will also need the Magnetic Lure Module, which we discussed earlier. Once you have 100 Candies in your inventory and are around a Magnetic Lure Module, the “Evolve” button on your Magneton should light up and allow you to evolve it into a Magnezone.
Getting your Magnezone in Pokemon GO
If you check your Magneton without meeting the prerequisites, the Evolve button will be greyed out and will not work no matter how much Magnemite candy you have.
In order to unlock the evolve button and obtain a Magnezone:
- Catch enough Magnemite and Magneton until you have 125+ Magnemite candies
- Evolve your chosen Magnemite into a Magneton with 25 Magnemite Candies
- Purchase a Magnetic Lure Module from the Shop ($2 or 200 Coins)
- Use the Magnetic Lure Module on a nearby PokeStop
- While inside of the Lure Module radius, use 100 Magnemite Candies to evolve your Magneton into a Magnezone
If the evolution button is not lit up and working, then you’re either outside of the Magnetic Lure’s radius, or do not have enough candy.
If you’re positive that you have both, then check your device’s location settings and try restarting your Pokemon GO app.
