Mega Pokémon that boost Wingull

The following Pokémon will grant you extra bonuses when catching  Wingull if they are Mega-evolved. 

Mega Catch Bonus

While a Pokémon is Mega-Evolved, additional XP and Candy are granted when catching a Pokémon that shares a type with it, or for any raid boss caught. These do not stack with each other. Additionally, High and Max Level Mega-Evolved Pokémon grant an increased chance to obtain Candy XL when catching a Pokémon that shares a type with it.

Is it worth evolving Wingull?

Wingull’s evolution Pelipper is one of those polarising mons that tends to dominate certain limited cup formats to the point where it is pretty much mandatory to have one built! Blessed with some incredible moves, Wing Attack allows it to reach its spammy Weather Ball Water in only 5 (then 4) turns, and its nuke move Hurricane can threaten to inflict heavy damage when unshielded. Pelipper has a more than decent win-loss rate in the open Great League, and has even started popping up a lot more often in the Ultra League – with a really decent record to boot! If you find yourself blessed with the hundo, this is a great opportunity to prioritize a short, sharp XL grind for this spicy Ultra League build.

The main challenge with using Pelipper is its relative lack of bulk – in terms of stat product, it has less bulk than Pidgeot, which is already so-so, and wayyy less than other WaterFlying types such as Mantine, which has become a lot more present in the open meta. Thankfully its speed and power do a lot to compensate for this, but it can be hard for it to overcome its unfavourable matchups. Still, I wouldn’t fly away from the colony of Wingull’s – take this opportunity to hunt for a good stat product Great League variant (the bulkier the better), and the hundo!
