Pokemon Go: Special Evolution Item List

New with the release of the Johto Pokemon Update, many new and old Pokemon can evolve into advanced form Pokemon, but only through the use of specific Evolution Items. These special items can be used along with specific Pokemon Candy to evolve a Pokemon.

This even works with Pokemon who have different evolution paths, as an additional evolution button will let you choose which path you’d like to take if you meet the requirements.

How to Get Special Items
The Special Evolution Items are guaranteed rewards for 7-day Pokestop streaks. Evolution items are incredibly rare and have less than a 1% chance of being found at Pokestops.

Item List
There are currently 5 new Evolution Items introduced with the latest update.

Dragon Scale

The Dragon Scale is one of the new Evolution Items that can be used in conjunction with Pokemon Candy to evolve some of the Gen 1 Pokemon to new Gen 2 evolutions. Currently, the applicable Pokemon for this item is Seadra, who can be evolved into Kingdra using a Dragon Scale and 100 Horsea Pokemon Candy.

Evolve Umbreon or Espeon

As with evolving Eevee into Jolteon, Vaporeon and Flareon, naming them after one of the Eeveelutions character names from the show, evolves them into their Pokemon Go equivalent. I have confirmed this, as it worked for me. To evolve Eevee into Umbreon, rename the desired Eevee to Tamao before evolving.

To evolve Eevee into Espeon, rename the desired Eevee to Sakura before evolving.
