Pokemon GO trainers want to know how to evolve Clamperl.

Clamperl, the "Bivalve" Pokemon, is known for its study shell that both protects it from attacks but is also used to help it capture prey. It evolves in Huntail, the "Deep Sea" Pokemon or Gorebyss, the "South Sea" Pokemon. Huntail is known for its ability to live deep in the very depths of the ocean despite immense pressure and little light. Gorebyss, on the other hand, is known for its elegance, brilliant color in warm weather, and exsanguination-type feeding.

How to Evolve Clamperl in Pokemon GO

In truth, there isn't really any special way to evolve Clamperl. Pokemon GO operates apart from the traditional main series games, so no unique items are needed for Clamperl to evolve.

Clamperl can be prompted to evolve using 50 candies. However, its evolutionary form will be randomized between Gorebyss and Huntail. Trainers may need to evolve multiple Clamperl in order to obtain both forms ⁠— so they may need upwards of 100 candies to fill this part of the PokeDex.

This is doubled for Shiny Hunters looking to obtain a shiny Huntail or Gorebyss. Clamperl and its evolutions have been shiny since 2019, though its shiny spawn rate remains the same.

Trainers can collect Clamperl candies by catching more Clamperl, Huntail or Gorebyss, or by walking with any of the three as their buddy Pokemon for a period of time. They should be able to find Clamperl during rainy weather or around a body of water.

Those uninterested in doing this work solo could always look for trading partners to fill their PokeDex, as well.
