Electivire is a pure Electric-type Pokemon with varied attacks that will be useful for PvP, but how do you get Electivire in Pokemon Go? Do you need any extra items, are there any extra requirements?
Fortunately enough, these are pretty easy questions to answer, so let’s get into it.
How to get Electivire in Pokemon Go
Before you fully commit to using Electivire, let’s talk about what you’ll need to get one. First of all, you’ll of course need the Pokemon to evolve into it – starting from either Elekid or Electabuzz. On top of that, you’ll need 125 candies if your start point is Elekid. You can knock 25 of that total off if you’re using Electabuzz instead. You’ll probably need to hatch a lot of Elekid or catch plenty of Electabuzz to get enough for this, though on the upside when you have enough candy, you’ll have a fair few Electivire candidates to choose from.
With the Candy and Pokemon now dealt with, you’ll need something else too, though fortunately, this is the last requirement for this evolution. Specifically, you’ll need a Sinnoh Stone, which we’ll talk about next.

Sinnoh stones are fairly annoying items to get ahold of. Your best bet for finding them is typically claiming research breakthroughs or completing trainer battles, which means it’s a real problem for players who don’t actively PVP. You might also be able to find one through limited-time research or rare tasks, so keep an eye out.
When you’ve found yourself a Sinnoh Stone, make sure to check out the link above to be certain you want to use it for Electivire – there are quite a few Pokemon who need these items to evolve.
Is there anything else to be aware of?
