Wurmple, Beautifly and Dustox

Wurmple has two different evolution paths in Pokemon Go, so here’s all you need to know about evolving it into Silcoon and Cascoon, then finally Beautifly and Dustox.

The Hoenn region’s Bug-type Wurmple was first introduced to Pokemon Go back in 2017. Ever since then, trainers have been searching for this adorable Bug-type creature to try and evolve it.

While Wurmple may not be the most powerful Pokemon in Pokemon Go, it’s still a vital addition to your Pokedex – especially since it’s one of the few Pokemon that can evolve into two different final stages.

This Bug-type Pokemon can become either Beautifly or Dustox, although it’s not always obvious how to get them. Luckily, we’ve got all the details you need right here for your Wurmple evolution needs.

How to evolve Wurmple into Silcoon or Cascoon in Pokemon Go

Wurmple can evolve into either Silcoon or Cascoon with just 12 Candy. Unfortunately, there’s no way to influence which one of these Wurmple evolves into as it will be decided entirely at random.

This means you’ll just need to keep evolving Wurmple until you get the evolution you want – especially if you’re trying to complete a challenge like the Bug Out! Collection Challenge.

How to evolve Silcoon into Beautifly in Pokemon Go

If your Wurmple has evolved into Silcoon, this means it will become Beautifly in its final stage. You can complete this evolution process with 50 Candy.

There’s no way to change this outcome, so don’t waste your Candy if you wanted a Dustox instead.

How to evolve Cascoon into Dustox in Pokemon Go

If your Wurmple has evolved into a Cascoon, this means it will become Dustox in its final stage. You can complete this evolution process with 50 Candy.

There’s no way to change this outcome, so don’t waste your Candy if you wanted a Beautiful instead.

Is there a Wurmple evolution trick in Pokemon Go?

Since Wurmple has the potential to evolve into one of two final evolutions, either Beautifly or Dustox, many trainers are left wondering what they can do to predict or influence the evolution they get.

Unfortunately, there’s no evolution trick to influence which way Wurmple’s evolution process will go. You’ll simply have to keep evolving Wurmple to get the outcome you want.

Which Wurmple evolution is the best in Pokemon Go?

Beautifly and Dustox over a Pokemon Go background
Each evolution serves it’s purpose but one is better than the other.

Dustox is a more defense-heavy Pokemon whereas Beautifly is more attack-based, although it’s worth noting that neither Wurmple evolution is particularly useful in Trainer Battles, Gyms, or Raids.

Dustox does have some potential in the Great League, where it has potential wins against the likes of Medicham, Scrafty, and Azumarill, but there are much better Bug and Poison-type Pokemon out there.

Can Wurmple be Shiny in Pokemon Go?

Shiny versions of Wurmple, Beautifly, and Dustox
There are shiny version of each evolution so get hunting!

Thanks to the Hatchathon in 2020, Wurmple does have a shiny variant in Pokemon Go. Therefore, it only makes sense that both Beautifly and Dustox can be shiny as well.

Shiny Wurmple has a purple color instead of its natural orange. Silcoon and Cascoon turn orange and green respectively. Lastly, Beautifly seems to go for a more muted yellow which is the same for Dustox.

That’s all you need to know about evolving Wurmple, so good luck hunting and happy catching! While you’re here, check out our Pokemon Go hub for more news and guides or try some of these:
