Growlithe is teeming around at Osaka Castle, Japan. I caught 11 yesterday, and around 7 the day before at the same place. Perhaps, famous sites of historical power may have quite a few.

Bantz Park in York, Pennsylvania, USA was suggested by the Facebook group I'm a part of. Went down there at 11:30pm Monday and there was a Growlithe sitting by the stop sign next to the park.

Question, is it better to evolve a pokemon like Growlithe and then raise their CP or raise their CP and then evolve them?

Anonymous said...

Evolve first and then raise their CP. Because if it turns out to be an Arcanine with bulldoze you wish you didn't spend all those candies to power him up before the evolution.

mine has fire fang and fire blast as moveset

Unknown said...

I had a Growlithe with the ideal moveset Bite/Body Slam, nearly maxed cp, that evolved to worst Arcanine moveset Bite/Bulldoze.

Had ~800cp Growlithe Bite/Flamethrower evolved to Fire Fang/Flamethrower
