I finally got enough candies to evolve a Combee whenever I find or hatch a female one. My current buddy Pokemon is Burmy. I was luck enough to catch one during a Raid battle. Thanks to the current event, I'm already up to about twenty candies, so I'll be able to get enough to evolve it in no time. I may keep it until I get one hundred candies instead of fifty, but it depends if I hatch any other Sinnoh Pokemon during the course of this event.
I finished getting all of the Burmy candy I needed during Adventure Week. I probably could have used that event to get more candies for other Pokemon, but I wanted to be prepared whenever I found another Burmy that I could evolve down the road too.
My current buddy Pokemon is my Shiny Shinx. I have more than enough candies to evolve one Shinx, but since I also want to evolve my Shiny Shinx, I need a bit more candy. It might take awhile, especially when I've barely gotten anything noteworthy in all of the ten kilometer eggs I've hatched lately, but I figured that I might as well get some Shinx candies while waiting to hatch some more.
