I've been playing Pokemon Go since its release and have utilized the "Transfer" option to my advantage (to increase the level of my other Pokemon). However, I have only seen one candy being dropped every time I transfer a Pokemon to the Professor. Is the maximum amount of candy you can obtain from a Pokemon 1, or are there factors that enable you to gain more than one candy?
Every Pokemon you transfer will only give you 1 candy when you're transferring it. Even when that Pokemon is evolved.
When you catch a Pokemon you will always get 3 candies.
2 km eggs: 5 to 15 candy 5 km eggs: 10 to 21 candy 10 km eggs: 16 to 32 candy
You always get one candy for transferring Pokemon, there is nothing like a "Power-Up" to change this.
Well you do get 3 candies for a caught Pokemon and 1 for a transfer but the amount u get from an egg varies. For example I've gotten 6 from my last egg but 15 from the one before.
You get varying amounts of candy when hatching an egg, 3 pieces when catching a Pokemon, and 1 piece when transferring a Pokemon.
3 for catching a pokemon 1 for transfering the higher level the egg generally the more candies but it is still extremely variable, I have gotten 21 candies from a 5km hatch yet only 15 from a 10km hatch so it just depends on your roll of the dice.
3 on catching and
1 on transfering
Eggs candies depends upon km.
