  • 🌐 Accessibility: β­β­β­β­β˜†

Rayquaza is a Legendary Pokemon only available in limited time events. Legendary Pokemon have 20k buddy walking distance and are generally a good place to use Rare Candies. Powering them up is also a challenge just because the candy is often limited to Raiding for them. Rayquaza is a phenomenal choice though, as it is currently the highest raw DPS Dragon-Type attacker, and among the best Flying-type attackers as well! its got crazy neutral DPS making it often a great choice even when its not hitting super effectively!
With Level 35 Rayquaza you need 4 players.

Murkrow are very common (although less so than they used to be), but are only weather boosted in Windy and Foggy-which are generally rare. Honchkrow also requires a Sinnoh Stone to evolve, which can be acquired randomly from your first Trainer Battle each day. You can also get a Murkrow from the Special Research “A Troubling Situation” part 1/4.
With Level 35 Honchkrow you need 4 players.

Abra is boosted a ton during windy weather. Psychic sadly is no longer available on Alakazam (it is now superior to Future Sight).

Espeon Evolves from Eevee. You can evolve any Eevee into an Espeon immediately if you use a ONE TIME naming trick by naming it “Sakura” and using the normal evolution. Otherwise, you need to set Eevee as your Buddy and walk it 10k and receive 2 candies. Evolve it while it is still your buddy, with the GPS active during the day. Eevee is also just a decently common Pokemon in general, with even increased spawns in Partly Cloudy weather which is fairly common. If all else fails, you can acquire a shiny Eevee from the “Jump Start” Special Research quest part 4/6. Eevee is also a quest reward for the “Evolve a Pokemon” Field Research quests. “A Ripple in Time” Special Research also rewards a normal Eevee in both part 3 and part 4. Eevee was also featured in the Field Research Rewards. Future Sight used to be the superior moveset, but after Psychic got buffed it is now superior. Eevee currently can be found in nests.
With Level 35 Espeon you need 4 players.
