The ongoing Hoenn Collection Challenge sees Pokémon Go players catching, among other Pokémon, the Rock-Type Nosepass. This Pokémon can evolve into the Steel/Rock-Type Probopass, but only under specific conditions.
As with all of the Pokémon that must be caught in the Hoenn Collection Challenge, Nosepass was introduced in the third generation of Pokémon games, in Ruby and Sapphire.
Its evolution, Probopass, didn’t debut until a generation later with the release of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, which it’s rumoured (but not confirmed) will receive a remake at some point in the near future.
How to evolve Nosepass in Pokémon Go
To evolve Nosepass into Probopass in Pokémon Go costs 50 Nosepass Candy and requires a Magnetic Lure.
Lures can be placed on PokéStops to increase the rate at which Pokémon spawn nearby. Magnetic Lures attract Steel-Type, Rock-Type, and Electric-Type Pokémon; Mossy Lures attract Grass-Type, Bug-Type, and Poison-Type Pokémon, and Glacial Lures attract Ice-Type and Water-Type Pokémon.
To evolve a Nosepass in Pokémon Go, tap a PokéStop’s Add Lure option, then add a Magnetic Lure. Then, while, standing within range of the PokéStop, you’ll be able to evolve Nosepass into Probopass using 50 Nosepass Candy.
How to get a Magnetic Lure in Pokémon Go
The simplest way to get a Magnetic Lure is to purchase one from the Pokémon Go Shop. Here, they cost 200 PokéCoins.
Alternatively, Magnetic Lures are given as rewards for Special Research Tasks. For example, the first A Thousand-Year Slumber Special Research task requires the player to catch 25 Pokémon, spin 10 PokéStops, and make three new friends.
Anyone who does this will be awarded a Magnetic Lure (and a Mossy Lure, and a Glacial Lure) which can be used to evolve Nosepass into Probopass in Pokémon Go.
