An evolved Pokemon should be stronger than their original form.
But, I've got a 78-cp Weedle and a 62-cp Kakuna.
This is what probably happened?
- I evolved a very weak Weedle into a Kakuna.
- I just captured a very strong Weedle.
Reap the Kakuna for a candy and evolve the strong Weedle into another Kakuna? And I get 500 XP for my troubles?
