Pokémon GO received a minor, albeit significant update today. From this day forward, the 7-day ‘First PokéStop of the Day’ streak will now guarantee a random Evolution item drop. High five!

As someone who’s yet to be blessed with a single evo item since Johto ‘mons were introduced, this feature is sure to be a godsend for any Trainer failing to fill those gaping holes in their Pokédex.

Are you psyched to finally evolve your Onyx into Steelix? Let us know in the comments!

    I play for fun and it’s not any fun when I get the same Pokemon over and over again and not the icons to evolve….in my area of Northville Mi and Livonia Mi plus Plymouth Mi we get nothing….very sad as my young and older children plus myself are getting discouraged of playing the game. We may not be “true” trainers but just fun players your losing a bunch of us. But then again do you really care
    By the way I’m 78 and have so far enjoyed playing. But as of today not so much. I am willing to say there are a few old folks like me that enjoy it also

    This is great news. I play for fun too, and it has been very difficult to get the specials items to evolve some of the Pokémons. I have been playing since July 2016. My grandchildren got be starting playing but they have all bailed out because of the difficulty of getting some of the Pokémons and special items. I even leveled up to 34 and didn’t get any special items. Thank you for helping us collect the special items on our seven day spin. I haven’t miss a day of the daily spinning since it started.

    If everyone is special, nobody is special.
