Among the most frequent questions within the Pokémon Go player community, the choice of Wurmple's evolution is a relatively common subject between trainers. Indeed, Wurmple does not have one but two possible intermediate developments. This offers the possibility of having two different Pokémon in the third stage of evolution.

In this article, we will try to answer all the questions that trainers ask themselves in order to better understand how to choose the evolution of Wurmple in Pokémon Go and thus help you to complete your Pokédex.

Evolution of Wurmple in pokemon go: everything you need to know

How to choose the evolution of Wurmple everything to know from pokemon faction


What are the developments of Wurmple?

Wurmple is a small caterpillar Pokémon which can evolve into two distinct forms: Silcoon or Cascoon. To evolve Wurmple in Pokémon Go , it is necessary to have 12 Wurmple candies.

Silcoon is an insect Pokémon in the shape of a white cocoon. Thanks to 50 candies it will evolve into Beautifly, a gray butterfly with yellow wings of the Insect and Flight type.

Cascoon is an insect Pokémon shaped like a pink cocoon. Thanks to 50 candies, it will evolve into Dustox, a pink moth with green wings of the Insect and Poison type.

The two Pokémon are obviously necessary if you want to complete your Pokédex and that is why the question arises how to choose the evolution of Wurmple in Pokémon Go?

Evolution of Wurmple: how to choose it?

We want to be as clear as possible in order to answer this question you are asking yourself:

It is impossible to choose the evolution of Wurmple in Pokémon Go. The evolution in Silcoon or Cascoon is completely random.

Unfortunately, there are many rumors about this and many players believe they have found the method to influence the evolution of Wurmple in Pokémon Go , such as the time of day or the gender of the Pokémon. We will see later in this article that they were just lucky and that their method did not work.

On what is the random choice based?

When you capture Wurmple, the Pokémon Go application will assign an internal Pokémon value purely at random. It is this value which will define if your Wurmple will evolve into Silcoon or Cascoon.

It is impossible to predict the internal value of Wurmple in the game. It is not yet created when you meet it in wild form. In addition, you will unfortunately be unable to know it when the Pokémon is on your team.

Just imagine that Wurmple has no planned evolution when you meet him. As you capture it, the app tosses a coin into the air to flip a coin. The evolution in Silcoon or Cascoon will simply depend on the side on which the piece will fall.

This is why we say that the evolution of Wurmple in Pokémon Go is random . It is based on luck. It depends on chance.

How to get Silcoon and Cascoon in Pokémon Go?

Understand that, if you want to capture a Wurmple, there is no method to get Silcoon or Cascoon for sure. Luckily, evolving Wurmple requires only 12 candies and this Pokémon is quite easily found in nature. We therefore advise you to capture a maximum of Wurmple using Pinap Berries and make them evolve until you obtain the desired evolution.

A second method to complete your Pokédex is to exchange the evolution of Wurmple that you do not have with another Pokémon Go player. Thus, not only will you not have to play with the randomness of the game, but in addition you will be able to bond with the Pokémon Go trainers around you.

Evolution of Wurmple: top 5 false rumors

Evolution of wurmple from pokemon faction

We saw together that the evolution of Wurmple in PokémonGo depends only on luck. However, it very often happens that players claim to have found a method to influence chance in order to obtain Silcoon or Cascoon. Unfortunately, these players mostly rely on their own experience and generalize it by saying that it is enough to do like them to get the same result.

Even if we know that only chance influences the transformation of your Pokémon into Silcoon or Cascoon, we have conducted our own experience to prove that all these rumors are indeed false. We thus gathered a set of volunteer trainers and compared each alleged method to a hundred tests in order to see if it worked or not. Here are the results we got.

The day and the night

The first rumor is that it is possible to get Silcoon by day and Cascoon by night, or vice versa. Unfortunately, after only a few tries, we could see that there were as many chances of having one or the other of the Pokémon depending on the day or the night.

Time of day

Other further rumors go so far as to say that it is the time of day that influences obtaining the final Pokémon. We thus carried out several tests: on even hours, odd hours, even going so far as to press the "progress" button at the same time on different accounts. It turns out that this method does not allow you to choose the Pokémon you want to obtain.


A popular idea is that the weather in Pokémon Go influences the evolution of Wurmple. After testing in rainy, snowy or sunny weather, we can confirm that we have obtained as many Silcoon as Cascoon each time by upgrading our Pokémon. 


Equally interesting, some players claim that it is Wurmple's gender that will impact his final evolution. If you only have males or only females in your inventory, rest assured, this rumor is false. It is quite possible to evolve Wurmple in Pokémon Go in two different ways, regardless of its gender.

Pokemon statistics

Finally, the last and most common rumor concerns Pokémon statistics. Some players will tell you that size and weight count, others that it is Wurmple's. Some others will tell you that it depends on attack, defense, or HP stats. We tested several evolutions of Wurmple having the same basic statistics and it very often happened that we came across different results. Statistics therefore have no role to play in the evolution of Wurmple in Pokémon Go.


You will understand, it is impossible to choose if your Wurmple will evolve into Silcoon or Cascoon because it depends on a value randomly assigned by the game. However, by dint of patience or by exchanging the desired Pokémon with a friend , it will be relatively easy for you to complete your Pokédex to obtain Dustox or Beautifly.

With all this information, we hope that you have learned a little more about how Pokémon Go works and that you will not listen to all the rumors that exist on the internet about the evolution of Wurmple. In the meantime, we wish you the best of luck to complete your Pokédex and have fun playing with your future Cascoon and Silcoon!
