Pokemon Go Gen 2 is definitely a real thing and trainers are already busy in preparing for it. If you want to progress fast in Gen 2, you’ll need to start saving up Pokemon candies already.
Here are the Pokemon candies you need to save to be ready for Gen 2.
Slowpoke (100 candies)
It is reported that Slowking is going to be the strongest Pokemon in Gen 2 to with a Max CP of 2232. In order to evolve Slowpoke to Slowking it might require from 50 to 100 candies. So, it will be better for you to start saving the Slowpoke candies instead of getting rid of them.
Eevee (25 candies)
You don’t actually need to keep evolving those Eevees if you have a good Flareon, Vaporeon and Joltreon. It also advisable that you should save the Eevees that have highest CP and transfer the rest.
In gen 2, Espeon and Umbreon will have Max CPs of 1911 and 1938 respectively, which means they will be very powerful. So, it would be better for you to keep hold Eevee candies now.
Scyther (50 Candies)
Scyther will evolve to Scizor, who has a max CP of 1910 in Gen2. You can’t evolve Scyther at this particular point of time, so it would be better for you to save those candies for the future.
Onix (50 candies)
Onix is a useful Pokemon now, but all you should aim for is Steelix, which has a max CP of 1754. It is definite that Onix will be tough to find in Gen 2, so, you should start saving the Onix candies which have highest IV rating.
Horsea (100 Candies)
Horsea evolves into a very powerful Pokemon, Kingdra which has a maximum CP of 2300. Although Horsea is not the best Pokemon you should think of the future and start saving now.
Porygon (50 Candies)
