a bearer of ill fortune indeed. murkrow is abundant, but has little competitive merit, and the same capture rate as the unevolved starters, wearing down the ball and berry supply.
however it's tempting to capture them toward the delinquent medal, being the most abundant dark type, and to gather high IV specimens and candy toward honchcrow, which according to predicted stats, is expected to be decent in GO (expect it to need an evo item too).

have 363 candy and 4 high IV specimens saved up so far.

It evolves into Honchkrow? When? How? O.O

I see no way for Murkrow to evolve.

It is a cross-generation evolution. You'll have to hold on to them through at least two more generations to get Honchkrow.

Murkrow aren't as useless as they seem. They have some powerful dark moves. 1. Feint attack or 2. Snarl (not listed above) with 1. Foul Play or 2. Dark Pulse do a lot of damage against a psychic defender like Lugia due to the combination of the super-effective and same-type-attack bonuses.

While the low maximum CP might seem to rule them out for attacking, if you're in a large raid group where there is no question the boss will be defeated, most people won't get to play all six of their attackers. That means less chance to do damage before the end of the raid. It becomes more important that each mon do a lot of damage than that it that a mon last without fainting. As long as you do a high amount of damage, you'll get a lot of balls in the bonus round, even if you're on your sixth Murkrow when someone else is on their first Blissey.
