CP drops when evolved?


Naw… haven’t evolved a Weedle in … ? Probably 10 months easily.

Others said happened to them as well… though oddly no evolved Squirtle yet. Another one where just been in no rush and waiting for an IV that doesn’t suck. No Rampardos yet either, I think community day event this month is for those so just waiting.


If I’m being honest I think the posts I’ve quoted above are trying to fool us and you did probably think the CP went down.


Ya, I’m not really into the April Fool’s stuff… I was posting about another issue I had and thought I’d ask about this one. I’ve had it a few times, niece as well, just didn’t commit the exact pokemon/cp to memory because why would I? I know it wasn’t a weedle because haven’t touched those in forever, and I know 100% for sure it wasn’t Trapinch because I still have a greyed out silhouette for it’s eveolution because it’s never been evolved.

Just figured it either happens, but rare, or, it’s a glitch that happens and not supposed to.


A Turtwig with 600 is between level 20 and 25, a Grortle of 400 is between level 8 and 10…

Something very strange if a Pokémon evolving looses about 10-15 levels…


Youve just rembembered it wrong, some Pokemon lose CP because of their stats
Its not a glitch nor an april fools joke


Well, again I “thought” one was a Turwig… coulda been wrong, really doesn’t matter. I’ve had it happen 3x, niece had is 2x… can’t say for sure what her 2 were, but can guarantee my 3 were NOT weedle/trapinch.

My niece was there for 2 of the occurrences and also said WTF when it happened so… regardless which Pokemon it was, I know which it wasn’t and have a witness that it happened.

(mic drop)


I’m not going to say I believe it but if it happens yet another time, try to make screen shots.


Ya, that won’t happen… it means taking a screen shot of everything I evolve on the off-chance it happens again. More a hassle than what the game is worth.

As for believing me… I know it happened and my niece knows it happened, and has had it happen (and we’re talking a 22yr old not some 8yr old kid prone to make believe). Can’t say I’m too concerned about proving it to strangers. :slight_smile:

Figured I’d ask if it happened to anyone else and why outta curiosity, same as catching something and having it show up in the list as another pokemon completely (apart from dito).

I’ll assume game glitch and move on.


Im not saying you are lying, Im saying you either werent paying enough attention to the CPs or it was one of the few Pokemon that should drop CP


That is what I think, too.


Sorry, i tought the guy was talking about losing CP when a pokemon evolved, my big boy brain didnt read all the text.
PS: Wait the guy was talking about dropping when evolving, i knew i had a big brain


no dude I am NOT lying is happened to me numerous times


I still can’t believe this actually happens. @cup do you know if it was a Weedle/Trapinch? And if the CP went down much?


It was blastoise and ramparos


Quite sure these two cant happen, you likely werent paying much attention


Dude I know what happen to my pokemon what good would it me to lie


You know what I mean


I think I do
Im not saying you lie, Im saying you just didnt care enough to remember it properly


I’m just messing with you man
