I keep getting the message, “Error” when I try to evolve my Milotic from Feebas. I have 100 candies and my buddy Feebas walked 20km with me. Yet still the error message. I tried closing out and logging in again to no avail. Any suggestions?
1Have you tried evolving Feebas while it's your buddy? If so, does it still get the error?– WondercricketOct 12, 2022 at 17:18
2Yep. Ultimately, I unbuddied and re-buddied her and powered her up, replenished some candy, and the error eventually went away. She is now evolved. Seems it was just a temporary glitch of some kind.– Papachu31Oct 13, 2022 at 18:21
1You should add that as an answer @Papachu31 in case anyone else has that issue.– Roddy of the Frozen PeasOct 13, 2022 at 23:12
1@RoddyoftheFrozenPeas It's not a definitive answer though as there's no way to tell why it was fixed.– l3l_azeOct 15, 2022 at 7:02
2"it eventually resolved itself" is an answer -- it means that someone with the same problem doesn't despair that their pokemon is unevolvable. The fact that we don't known exactly why doesn't negate that it's an answer. @l3l_aze– Roddy of the Frozen PeasOct 15, 2022 at 15:23
As Papachu31 states
I unbuddied and re-buddied her and powered her up, replenished some candy, and the error eventually went away.
error eventually went away portion might be the biggest clue.
My personal experiences with no evolve issues has been resolved either over time, restarting the game or even clearing out the games cache from the phone settings menu.
if the problem persists across phone reboots, cache clearing and time. Try on someones else's phone or contact Niantic (especially if it takes longer than a few days). One time, they actually looked at my account and gave back a item I lost trying to accomplish something and to "try now".
