Since the first generation of Pokémon there have been some peculiar evolutionary methods, but nothing much more obscure than what you need to do to evolve Inkay. Yes, Inkay, that semi-obscure generation six Pokémon, takes our prize for the most ridiculous evolutionary method, but catching them all is the quest at the end of the day, so it’s something that you need to get your head around.
That’s where we come in, with our comprehensive guide on how to evolve Inkay in Pokémon Go and the main series of Pokémon games. The method is a little different between the two games, but there’s still enough in common so that with one read of this guide you won’t ever need to remind yourself how to get hold of Malamar in your next Pokémon adventure.
