Pokémon GO Fire and Ice Event Guide

Ah the grand Solstice! With the influx of Fire & Ice spawns, it is possible to obtain several high tier Gym attackers and to invest in future Generations. In this guide, we’ll be focusing on collecting a large number of relevant Candy, not on farming EXP.

Pokémon that evolve in future Generations

Magmar evolves into a Magmortar (FIRE, 2980 Max CP) in Generation IV, making it one of the best Fire Pokémon in game once Gen 4 lands.

Sneasel evolves into a Weavile (DARKICE, 2815 CP) in Generation IV, making it a very lucrative catch during this event. We expect Weavile to cost at least 50 Sneasel Candy to evolve.

Swinub and Piloswine
Piloswine evolves into a Mamoswine (GROUNDICE, 3289 CP), a defensive beast with great typing. Make sure to stock up on Swinub Candy, as it will be very useful in the future.
Other important catches

High Priority:

Growlithe, Charmander and Cyndaquil
Although there is not a lot of difference between these Pokémon in term of their role in the meta, we believe they will become relevant once the Gym rework lands, so keep an eye on them
Flareon and Espeon are one of the highest rated glass cannons, so Eevee is the a very important catch this event. Do note that Eevee is not yet confirmed as an increased spawn, but Flareon is featured on the official event artwork.
