Evolving Pokemon in Pokemon Go used to be a simple task. You would catch a whole bunch of them, save up candy, and then one day you’ll have enough for a bigger, stronger version of that Pokemon. Honestly as simple as that. Well, these days it’s a bit more complicated, at least for certain Pokemon. We can forgive the Pokemon that ask for a trade, but those Pokemon that require special lures in order to evolve? Now that’s something we haven’t seen before, but it’s something you’ll have to deal with in Pokemon Go.

Which brings us onto Nosepass, which you may have caught a whole mess of during the Pokemon Go Hoenn Collection Challenge, in which players are catching a whole bunch of different Hoenn Pokemon in the wild, in addition to the legendary titans Kyogre and Groudon. Completing the Pokedex is no easy task, and Nosepass didn’t have an evolved form when it was first introduced in the third generation, but now we have Probopass, a bigger, stronger, hairier version of the Moai-inspired monster. Just follow our instructions below to get your Nosepass evolvled in Pokemon Go during this Hoenn Collection Challenge - or any time of the year, really.

How To Evolve Nosepass Into Probopass In Pokemon Go

Although Probopass is not required for the Hoenn Collection Challenge, it’s a damn good time to evolve Nosepass, as you can now collect plenty of Nosepass candy. The only problem is that you’ll need a special lure, which may end up being far rarer than anything else here. You will need a Magnetic Lure for this challenge.

All you need to do to evolve Nosepass into Probopass in Pokemon Go is to set a Magnetic Lure Module on a PokeStop - or just visit a PokeStop that someone else has set a Magnetic Lure on, of course - and then you will be given the option to evolve Nosepass for 50 Nosepass candy. A few taps later and you’ll have Probopass in your Pokedex.

Another Pokemon that will only evolve when in the proximity of a Magnetic Lure Module is Magneton, which can become Magnezone if you have enough candy and the correct lure module nearby.


Now we just need to figure out how to easily get Magnetic Lures in our bag…

How To Get A Magnetic Lure Module In Pokemon Go

Magnetic Lure Modules are pretty rare in Pokemon Go. The best and easiest way to collect one is to buy one for 200 coins from the in-game shop, which is a fairly high price to ask - I know I’d rather get an expansion to my bag or Pokemon storage. Regardless of which you think is best, this is the only way to get a Magnetic Lure Module if you desperately need one.

To earn coins quickly and easily, make sure to visit Pokemon Gyms which belong to your team whenever possible and put one of your own Pokemon in there - a powerful one, if possible. This will ensure you get coins at the end of the day, up to 50 a day. It might take four days to save up, at least, but it’s always worth stocking up on coins for your next upgrade or lure module.
