Best Way to Get an Upgrade in Pokémon GO 2022

Pokémon GO held a Spotlight Hour for the Virtual Pokémon, Porygon, on Tuesday, Nov. 15 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. local time. For trainers that were able to get their hands on the generation one Pokémon, the Upgrade item is essential for evolving it. When used once, Porygon will evolve into Porygon2, and, with another one, it will reach its final evolution, Porygon Z.  Unfortunately, Upgrades are one of the hardest items to find in Pokémon GO, so here is how trainers are able to obtain one. 

Best Way to Get an Upgrade in Pokémon GO 2022 

Upgrade is one of seven evolutionary items in Pokémon GO. Unfortunately, like the Dragon Scale, the process of obtaining it is both timely and requires an amount of luck. The only way to receive evolutionary items is by spinning photo disks at PokéStops or opening gifts from other trainers.

Though there is only one-percent drop rate at PokéStops, opportunely, there are ways for trainers to increase these odds.

The trainer's first PokéStop of the day will give drop a jackpot of items. Trainers who frequent the same Pokéstop, after its daily reset, seven days in a row, will be guaranteed to receive one random Evolution item. This raises the chances from one percent to nearly having a 15 percent chance of earning the Upgrade item.
