How to Evolve?

Slugma is the unevolved form of the Pokemon. At level 38, Slugma evolves into Magcargo. This evolution can be done through the use of rare candies. This is its first evolution form. In the Pokemon Go, Slugma can be evolved into Magcardo through the use of 50 Slugma candy. This can be further mega evolved by using Magcargonite into Mega Magcargo.

How Much Useful Is My Slugma?

This Pokemon carries oxygen and essential nutrients to its organs. It has a flame body and magma armour. They may discharge filth gases or small flames when the target is attacked. This poisons the target or leaves them with a burn. They also can prevent setup with Memento and Clear Smog to stop setup. Slugma’s circulatory system has Molten magma flowing in it.

For a broader view of its use you should see against which Pokemon, Slugma can be damaged, has a weakness towards, is immune and resistant to.

Effectiveness of Slugma

Damage Normally By Weak Against Immune To Resistant To
Normal Ground None Bug
Fighting Rock Steel
Flying water Fire

Well, do you think that the Slugma Evolution can suffice your needs in the game after going through its weakness, Moveset, stats and more? If yes then you should run down to the Pokemon official page for Slugma Evolution!

But if still, you think that you may find some better Moveset, stats and less unhealthy weakness with the help of evolution other than of Slugma, then Herald Journalism has information stocked for that purpose.
