Pokémon GO - How to get Cascoon and Silcoon

Published on August 15, 2022

As part of the latest Bug Out! Collection Challenge in Pokémon GO, Trainers must get hold of both Silcoon and Cascoon. Trading for them doesn’t count as quest completion, and achieving the required evolution can get confusing when it comes to Wurmple.

In order to fully complete the Collection Challenge in the Bug Out! Event you have to earn yourself a Cascoon and a Silcoon Evolution. But if you’ve ever tried to evolve a Wurmple in Pokémon GO, you know that the evolution option has a question mark. This guide describes everything you need to know about the evolution of the Worm Pokémon.

The first step to getting a Cascoon or a Silcoon in Pokémon GO is to have enough Wurmple Candy on hand. Due to the complicated development of the bug type, the second form only needs 12 candies in total. Most three-form Pokemon require 25 Candy to evolve just once.

With these 12 candies for Wurmple, you’ll tap the evolve option just like any other Pokemon in the game. However, it has a question mark instead of an outline for the second shape. This is because the process is essentially a gamble on whether a Silcoon or a Cascoon will appear.

Some Pokemon have a naming trick or secondary parameter that allows trainers to decide which evolutionary branch to follow. In Wurmple’s case, it’s a 50/50 shot to show up for. Of course, that complicates the collection challenge, and if you’re unlucky you might have to do a handful of evolutions.

The good news is that the Evolution is super cheap. Even the Cascoon and Silconn forms are cheap for final development with only 50 Wurmple Candies. Most third forms in the game require at least 100 candies.

After obtaining a Cascoon or a Silcoon, both have a defined third form. Cascoon evolves into Dustox and Silcoon evolves into Beautifly. If you don’t already have them, this week is a great time to add both types of bugs to your Pokédex.

For trainers who already have both forms, no need to worry about getting Dustox or Beautifly for the Bug Out! Collection Challenge. Cascoon and Silcoon are the only requirements, and there are no third forms on the list for the Pokémon GO event.
