What Do You Think the Candy's Made out Of?

August 16, 2016

I'm sure this thought has occured to at least some of you people playing Pokémon Go, and to those who don't play, allow me to explain. Every time you catch a pokémon, a pidgey for example you get three pidgey candies. You use these candies to power up your pokémon and to evolve them. When you evolve pokémon you get a decent amount of experience, so it's a good way to level up. But you need a lot of candy to evolve a pokémon, in order to get enough you need to catch dozens of pidgeys, but you only need to evolve the one, so the extra pidgeys you have you can "transfer" to the proffesor, and in return you get one more candy. Question is, where'd that candy come from?
