A new generation of Pokémon usually means tons of new Pokémon to catch and collect, as well as some creative or even odd ways to evolve them.

In this new generation, one of those Pokémon happens to be Pawmi. To evolve a Pawmi, the player must walk alongside their partner for a total of 1,000 steps using the game’s “Let’s Go!” feature. On paper, this seems like a simple feat to accomplish as you’re walking (or biking) most of the time anyway. However, this can wind up being a bit more difficult than it sounds as the Pokêmon following you have certain limitations for how far you can walk from them before they return to their ball, thus taking away from your progress towards 1,000 steps.

Luckily, it seems that one Japanese player has discovered a rather simple trick to make this whole process a lot easier, and all it requires is the High Jump ability.

As you can see in the video, the trick is pretty easy, basically requiring you to send out your Pokémon using “R” or ZR”, then jump on top of a Pokémon Center using the High Jump ability that’s acquired from the ‘Path of Legends’ storyline in the game. Once the player is on the roof, the Pokémon that’s left on the ground will proceed to run around in circles as it attempts to reach the player. Once this happens, all that’s left is to give the Pokémon about 5-10 minutes (or longer) to get in its cardio for the day, then level it up to evolve and BOOM! You should have a shiny, brand new Pawmot by the end of it. If for whatever reason it doesn’t evolve, you can repeat the process from the start until it does.

What do you think of this method? Feel free to let us know in the comments below!

Didnt know how it was supposed to evolve, i guess this works then, unless camping does as well, making a camp make a cirkle and if its in a totally open area you can have the stick just hold up for example to run in that circle. Ive not tested that for hatching eggs, but if that works maybe it works for this evolution as well.
