Pixelmon Evolutions

Evolving your Pixelmon provides several advantages, the first of which is the creation of an entirely new E2 Pixelmon L1 NFT that grants you the following benefits:

  • New unique, animated art.
  • Access to a dedicated sub-pool of licensing revenue for RoG to be earned and distributed among all E2 NFT Holders of the same species.
  • The best chance to win an E3 serum (by staking E1+ E2)
  • An L2 copy of the NFT, usable in-game and identifiable from other L2 copies (closer to the game release date)
  •  The potential future ability to receive multiple unannounced benefits in the form of special collectors’ rewards for holding multiple evolutions of the same species.

Pixelmon Genesis NFTs can evolve through Serum Burn, a mechanism that involves the release of an additional Creature Genesis E2 on top of the already existing E1, by burning an E2 Serum NFT (in case of evolution 2). For Generation 1, there will only ever be 2,800 E2 serums, 1,000 E3 serums, and 33 E4 serums. The serums are distributed to the Genesis NFT holders via raffles, community event prizes, and through Trainer Adventures, which you can learn more about here.

As mentioned, E2s also have RoG benefits, where a portion of income generated by that monster's IP will be paid out as royalties to holders. Each E2 has access to a fixed subpool of royalties for that species. Hence, if that species has fewer E2 NFTs, anyone who burns a serum to create an E2 NFT for that species will have a higher upside. See below for an example using Borg:

Let’s look at a practical example: assume that you own a rare Boremon and an epic Borg, but only one serum, and you must decide which one to evolve. You also know that nine other holders have already evolved their Borgs, while only two have evolved their Boremons.

In this case, your ability to earn licensing revenue will be Y% of the total Species Royalties divided by 3 or 10, for Boremon and Borg, respectively.

Therefore, if you believe that the Boremon species will generate at least ⅓ of Borg’s royalties, then you should evolve Boremon. Else, if you believe that the Borg species will generate at least 5x the licensing revenue of Boremon, you should evolve Borg. Prioritizing the least evolved species within a particular rarity tier may prove to be the most advantageous strategy.

Finally, you can determine how often each species has evolved by visiting the "Statistics" section of the website. There, you will find the "Evolution Statistics" tab, which showcases the number of evolutions per species and the total number of species that have evolved, all updated in real-time.

One of the main features of progression within Pixelmon is through evolution. Evolving your Pixelmon not only enhances its abilities and grants you a new, separate NFT, but also has a significant impact on your ability to earn licensing revenue within the innovative Right-Of-Game (RoG) ecosystem.

In this article, we will specifically explore the evolutionary step between E1 to E2, using a Pixelmon Evolution Serum to evolve a Generation 1 Pixelmon.
