Gloom evolution in Pokemon Go is one of a few in the Pokémon universe that provide a choice. Like Eevee, Gloom can transform into one of multiple Pokémon when it evolves. Unlike Eevee, the options are much fewer. Here's what you need to know about Gloom and its evolutions.

Gloom Evolution Pokemon Go: What You Need to Know About Gloom's Evolution

Gloom is a grass and poison-type Pokémon originally from the Kanto region. In Pokémon Go it can be obtained by evolving an Oddish that's eaten 25 candies. It can have any of the following attacks:

  • Acid
  • Razor Leaf
  • Moonblast
  • Petal Blizzard
  • Sludge Bomb

Gloom can evolve into either Vileplume or Bellossom depending on what the player feeds it. If they feed Gloom 100 candies, the Pokémon will become Vileplume. If they combine those 100 candies with a Sun Stone Gloom will become Bellossom.

Between the two, Vileplume tends to have higher attack and lower defense. Their staminas are roughly equal.
