Pokémon GO is set to have a New Evolution preview feature coming to the game sometime in September, Niantic announced Friday.

Next month is ramping to be chock-full of new content in Pokémon GO as in addition to the Season of Mischief one-day event and the new September Research Breakthrough Encounters, a new quality of life improvement will soon be added to the game to make evolving much better, especially for those avid battlers out there.

Pokémon GO New Evolution Preview Feature Coming in September

The upcoming New Evolution preview feature will soon allow trainers to preview the post-Evolution CP of their Pokémon before they actually evolve them.

This is thanks to a new Evolution preview screen that is said to display the following:

  • The current Pokémon and its CP
  • The Pokémon’s Evolution and its new CP
  • The leagues the Evolved Pokémon would qualify for

The feature is surely one that all battlers in Pokémon GO will welcome as it makes some heads-up information available conveniently on hand before trainers have to commit any resources.

For example, before evolving a Wartortle with a 1,114 CP to a Blastoise with 1,874 CP, the New Evolution preview feature would let the trainer know that although the upgraded form would be now be eligible for the Ultra League and Master League, it would no longer be able to compete in the Great League.

Once again, no firm release date has been set for the New Evolution preview feature to debut, but the drop shouldn't be expected too long after the launch of the Season of Mischief in-game event on Sept. 5.
