I have below two ekans. 1. CP 177 , HP 28/28, weight 9.28, poison:acid:10, poison:GunkShot:60 2. CP 170 , HP 31/31, weight 9.12, poison:poisonSting:6, poison:SludgeBomb:50

Basically second one has higher HP and poison type is different. I have 50 candy to evolve one of it. Which one do you suggest to evolve and why? does after evolve CP/HP be different? Please suggest.

    @Frank I disagree. This is about IVs too. Commented Jul 26, 2016 at 15:23

    A pokemon's stats depend on its level and IV. If you want the best Arbok in the long run, you'll need to calculate its IVs using an online calculator. To do this, you'll need its CP, HP, and power up cost. Commented Jul 26, 2016 at 15:24

    @Frank IVs are why one has higher HP, so it's about that even if OP doesn't realise. At any rate, the other question makes no mention of HP. Commented Jul 26, 2016 at 15:25

    @Studoku Sounds like a good answer to the other question would cover all of that.

do not evolve any. wait to have higher trainer level so you will find higher CP ekans.
