Pokémon Go – Inkay evolution: How to evolve Inkay into Malamar explained

Inkay and Malamar, its evolution, are members of Pokémon Gen 6 and can now be added to your Pokédex in Pokémon Go.

These Dark and Psychic-type Pokémon were originally released as part of the Psychic Speculator event that took place during September 2021.

However, what sets them apart from other Pokémon is Inkay’s special evolution requirement, and below you’ll find out how to turn an Inkay into a Malamar in Pokémon Go.

How to evolve Inkay into Malamar in Pokémon Go

If you want to turn an Inkay into a Malamar in Pokémon Go, you will first need to collect 50 Inkay Candy and then perform a unique action with your device.

First, let’s talk about Candy. This can be easily accomplished by catching Inkay using Pinap Berries, walking with an Inkay as your friend, and completing Stage 5 of the Misunderstood Mischief special research quest, which will reward you with 10 Inkay Candy.

From there, you must complete a special requirement to convert an Inkay into a Malamar. Fortunately, unlike Sirfetch’d or Runerigus, this requirement is very easy to fulfill.

Just like in the main series games, you have to turn your console upside down to evolve an Inkay, you’ll have to turn your phone upside down if you want to evolve this Pokémon in Pokémon Go! By this we mean that you simply have to turn your phone so that the screen is upside down.

That said, Niantic recognizes that not all devices have this feature and is currently working on a solution to implement an alternative method:

Trainers, we are aware that devices without gyroscopes are not compatible with Inkay’s unique evolution method. We will be implementing a fix in version (0.221) that will offer affected Trainers an alternative method to evolve Inkay into Malamar. Thank you for your patience.

Until then, start catching Inkay so you can get enough candy to evolve into Malamar when the new method arrives!
