There are over 800 Pokemon that you can catch in Pokemon Go. However, often in the quest to catch them all, you are bound to end up with a lot of duplicate Pokemon that you may have no use for. Since catching Pokemon that you have caught before still gives XP and Stardust, you should not miss the chance to get these rewards. These resources can be quite helpful in powering up or evolving your Pokemon. That being said, duplicates and extra Pokemon can be quite useful to players that know what to do with them in Pokemon Go.
What To Do With Duplicates Or Extra Pokemon In Pokemon GO?
Extra Pokemon can take up unnecessary storage space without being of much use. However, you can use them to earn Pokemon-specific Candy that can prove valuable when you are trying to evolve or power up a Pokemon. To earn candies by trading duplicates, you should transfer your extra Pokemon to Professor Willow. Simply click on the Pokemon and select the Transfer option. You can also long-hold and select multiple Pokemon to transfer at once.
Once you have enough candies, you can evolve and make your Pokemon stronger. If you want to rush through evolving your Pokemon, you might want to stock up on the Candies and do it once you have enough.
It is not possible to delete or release caught Pokemon again. This method allows you to get Candy in exchange for Pokemon that are of no use to you otherwise. So, next time you catch an extra pokemon, just Transfer it to Professor Willow. This way you can build up your collection of candies while getting rid of unused duplicates.
