Maximize Your Lucky Egg XP Gains

Redditor bchn spent the day making this calculator while the servers were down that maximizes XP gains from Lucky Eggs when evolving your Pokemon! Simply pop in the amount of Pidgeys and Pidgey candies you have and hit Calculate. The calculator also accounts for the extra candies you get for each evolution.

Time estimates are based on a conservative 30 seconds per evolution. This can vary depending on how well the server keeps up. I’ll adjust this as the servers start to stabilize.

If you’re not sure what this is for,bchn has explained it here.

The calculator features a dropdown list to select between a few common Pokemon including: Rattata, Weedle, Caterpie, and Eevee!

Since the first version was posted on Reddit a few QOL changes and bug fixes including a tip on whether or not to use the Lucky Egg and how many you should use. Negative amounts and super large amounts are also restricted. Thanks given to /u/Mule50.

“To manually calculate for multiple Pokemon, just do each individually and then add up the estimated time. If it’s > 30 minutes you’re good to go.”

Also note “To those wondering why the number of evolves is higher than simply Candies/12 – each evolution gives you back 1 Candy. So by the time you evolve 12 Pidgeys, you’ll have enough extra Candies to evolve another one.”

Future Plans

Things that may be added in the future:

  • Multiple Pokemon calculations
  • Transfer of T2 Pokemon
  • Custom Pokemon input
