How to Get Magnezone in Pokémon GO

In the main series games, Magneton evolves when it's exposed to a powerful magnetic field. InPokémon GO, this translates into being near a Magnetic Lure. To evolve Magneton in GO, simply pop a Magnetic Lure at a Stop to generate the magnetic field.

You'll now have the duration of the lure to evolve your Magneton. Go to your Pokémon list, and you'll be able to evolve Magneton into Magnezone if you have the requisite Candy while the Magnetic Lure is active. You'll need 50 Candy to evolve Magnemite into Magneton (Magnetic Lure not needed), and then another 100 Candy to evolve Magneton into Magnezone while the Lure is active.

This is the same way you evolve Nosepass into Probopass, another magnetic evolution introduced in Diamond and Pearl. Make the most of the Lure by getting a Nosepass ready with 50 Candy.

Magnezone is one of the best Steel types in the game, with an impressive 12 resistances and a variety of good Electric moves. It can tank through most attacks and is a good choice against many Raid bosses.
