What are the benefits of evolving?

Evolving your Pixelmon offers many benefits including new unique animated art, access to a dedicated sub-pool of licensing revenue for RoG, an increased chance to win an E3 serum and an L2 copy of the NFT (usable in-game). There will also be potential unannounced benefits in the form of special collectors' rewards and more which will be announced later within our Discord, Twitter or in our newsletter.

What happens to my Pixelmon when I evolve?

When you evolve your Pixelmon, it transforms into an entirely new E2 Pixelmon L1 NFT with the benefits mentioned above. This process involves one E1 Pixelmon and one Serum. The process will burn your serum, but leave you with an E1 and E2 variant of your Pixelmon at the end of the 30-day staking period.

Yes. You would need both an E3 serum and an E2 Pixelmon to evolve in order to get an E3 Pixelmon.

Are there benefits to owning the Pixelmon Trainer, E2 and E3 that come from an E1?

The largest benefit comes from holding E1 + E2 of the same type and a Trainer from the same tribe. It does not specifically need to be from the original E1, just the same species and tribe.

Will I be able to evolve my Pixelmon in-game, and if so, will it have RoG benefits?

Pixelmon L2 creatures will be evolvable in-game, however, L1 NFT’s are only evolvable through Serum Burn, and they are the only Pixelmon eligible for RoG benefits.

How will E2’s work with other deliverables, are they comparable to E1’s?

E2’s will be eligible for various benefits similar to E1’s, including RoG and all other benefits tied to the 2 collections. They will possess a few slight differences, as E1’s will always be the core, key element to our ecosystem. For the full range of benefits, the best approach is to own one of each of our current collections, a Pixelmon E1, E2 and Trainer.

What’s the benefit of evolving less rare Pixelmon compared to rarer ones? 

Evolving less rare Pixelmon can provide a higher upside in RoG benefits if that species has fewer E2 NFTs and a fixed subpool of royalties. This means you could earn a larger share of the licensing revenue for that species.

What about Kevin?

For now, Kevin is unable to evolve, however, the future of Kevin lies in the community's hands and more will be discussed and revealed later.

Will I have to hardstake after evolving?
