Can't seem to evolve my damn inkay

#1AChubbyNunPosted 11/10/2013 5:24:16 PM
I keep turning the 3ds upside down when it levels and after the battle but the little bugger won't evolve. It's at level 33 now.. Any tips?

When you're about to defeat the pokémon that will level it up, turn your 3DS upside down and keep it that way until it starts to evolve.

I dunno which point "counts", but that way you're sure.

It has to be upside down when it levels up. After that you're good to go back to normal.

Two more levels and it didn't work, last level i held it upside down (screen facing the ground) the entire match and nothing.

Sounds like a broken gyroscope. Try another 3DS.

EDIT: Actually, how are you holding it? Screen facing down so you can lie on your back and play normally, or screen pointed downwards so the bottom screen is above the top screen? It was the latter way when I evolved mine, I don't know if the former works.

The screens shouldn't be facing the ground, upside-down means you're holding the 3DS as if the top screen were the bottom screen and vice versa. I only turned it upside down once I was ready to press A to end the battle scene and that was enough to trigger evolution.

This sounds like the dumbest evolution method ever.
