Read on to know how to beat Ludicolo in raids, as well as its stats when caught!
Players will likely see Ludicolo cropping up more and more with the ongoing Water Festival in Pokemon GO! This Pokemon can easily help round out any team and is worth adding to your collection.
This ‘Mon originally debuted in Generation III and is part of the Hoenn section of the Pokedex. It takes 125 Candy to evolve it all the way from Lotad to Ludicolo – players should take advantage and catch the final evolution rather than using 100 candy!
Alternatively you could use one of the easy ways to get extra Candy during the Water Festival for a fast evolution!
