Inkay and Malamar, its evolution, are members of Gen 6 Pokémon and can now be added to your Pokédex in Pokémon Go.
These dark and psychic-type Pokémon were originally released as part of the Psychic Speculator event which ran during September 2021.
What sets them apart from other Pokémon, however, is Inkay's special evolution requirement and, below, you'll discover how to evolve an Inkay into a Malamar in Pokémon Go.
How to get Inkay evolution Malamar in Pokémon Go explained
If you want to evolve an Inkay into a Malamar in Pokémon Go, you'll need to gather 50 Inkay Candy.
This can be easily achieved by catching Inkay using Pinap Berries, walking with an Inkay as your buddy and completing Stage 5 of the Misunderstood Mischief special research quest, which will reward you with 10 Inkay Candy.
Much like how, in the main series games, you have to turn your console upside down to evolve an Inkay, you'll have to turn your phone upside down if you want to evolve this Pokémon in Pokémon Go! By this we mean you simply have to rotate your phone so that your screen is upside down.
So start catching Inkay and get ready to flip your phone to add Malamar to your Pokédex!
