Swirlix is making its debut to Pokémon Go during the Luminous Legends X event. The event is starting on May 4 at 10 AM in your local time zone and will happen until May 17, giving players two weeks to capture several of the Pokémon appearing during it. Xerneas is also making its debut as a legendary Pokémon in five-star raids for any trainers eager to battle it. With Swirlix appearing, players will be on the hunt for it and if you acquire enough Swirlix candy you can evolve it into a Slurpuff. We’ve broken down this Pokémon’s best moveset, if Swirlix can be shiny, and if Slurpuff is a good Pokémon to use in Pokémon Go. When attempting to evolve Swirlix into Slurpuff, there is another requirement.
Not only do you need 50 Swirlix candy to evolve one into Slurpuff, but you also need to complete the quest requirement, “Feed your Buddy 25 Treats”. You need to have a Swirlix captured, and the one you want to evolve needs to be in your collection. From there, assign this Pokémon as your buddy, and then go into the buddy menu to feed it the treats. You’ll need to do this 25 times, and you can only give it three candy at a time. You’ll need to wait a little bit to feed it all of the candy, but once the bar is full, the quest is done.
When the quest is done, you should be able to evolve your Swirlix into a Slurpuff. It’s a worthwhile Pokémon to add to your collection, so we highly recommend it.
