There are different candy colors in Pokemon Go. Where can each color be found?

  • Each Pokemon's candy has a set color scheme so if you want all the candies you would simply have to catch all the Pokemon. Commented Aug 16, 2016 at 3:10

The candies are never referred to by their color, but instead by the Pokemon they are for which are colored respectively to match them. There is one candy for each Pokemon and all their evolutions use the same candy type. For example, there isn't a Vaporeon candy only an Eevee candy and so the candy is brown.

You get the specific Pokemon candy by catching them, evolving them, transferring them, and hatching them and any of their evolutions.

I have not found the colors referenced anywhere yet, but you can create a candy using the following three layers.

Here is an example of masking the layers with green.

Here are the images with transparency.

I have compiled a list of the known primary/secondary colors for each pokemon.

    Do you have any idea how the base value is generated? I assume the game is programmed to make a histogram of the Pokémon's color value, and selects the dominant one color?

    @Courtny: Not sure, but I am interested as well. I will do some more research and update this when I come up with something. Commented Jul 19, 2016 at 19:03
  • @Courtny: I created the following page to render each of the candies dynamically at page load: rmkane.com/experiment/pokemon/candy Commented Aug 16, 2016 at 22:53
  • Where did you get these values from? I would really like to see the algorithm used to generate them

  • I data-mined the base and secondary colors from screenshots of each Pokemon. My algorithm is viewable in my script. Commented Sep 9, 2016 at 10:57
