Poochyena Evolution Chart
Poochyena Evolution Chart
Most Pokemon, legendaries aside, evolve in one way or another. they can be complex, which needs a complex chart such as the Tyrogue Evolution chart, to explain it. Or they can be simple, as is the case with the Slugma Evolution.
The simple method is the one that the Poochyena evolution model follows. It i simply a case of levelling up Poochyena until it reaches level 18, at which point, providing you don't cancel or it's not holding an everstone, Poochyena evolves into Mightyena.
How to Level up Poochyena
Assuming you want to follow the above Poochyena evolution chart and evolve it into Mightyena, rather than keeping it as the rather cute Poochyena, you need to level it up in the same way you do any Pokemon.
This is done in one of three ways
- By having it take part in battles that cause opponent Pokemon to faint, gaining it EXP
- By having Poochyena hold the item 'experience share', allowing it to gain EXP for battles it didn't take part in
- By feeding it rare candies
And that's it. Follow those simple steps and your Poochyena evolution will happen quickly and painlessly.
How to Catch Poochyena
Of course to follow that Poochyena evolution method you first need a Poochyena. Let us assume you want to catch one (if you would rather save the time and effort, then go to the Pokemon Forums and ask to trade one, most people on those forums would be happy to do so - and you get a FREE EV trained Pokeon just for signing up).
Catching Poochyena in Pokemon Black and Pokemon White
Poochyena is only available in the White Forest, so you need Pokemon White. If you have Pokemon Black then you are out of luck and need to trade for it, or transfer it from an older game. for more info on the White forest check this out.

It is a Swarm Pokemon (selected randomly each day). If it does swarm then it will be found on route 2, at level 2.
