    I'd check the IVs of your Dratini to see if it was decent before powering it up. I tend to power mine up before evolving them but I don't think it makes too much difference tbh. Just make sure you're above the 125 candy before you power it up because you could catch another good one!
    I have a 510 Dratini, worth evolving (would be my first) on my next lucky egg evolution cycle?

    I love this game but where I live at home is literally useless because there is nothing around so I'm constantly using up all my pokeballs.
    Yea I hate that about the game but I am lucky. Home sucks but at work I sit on two pokestops. And apparently a pidgey/rattata nest which is great for evolutions. caught 14 pidgeys already today and 8 rattata and a select few others.

    Can you evolve it into a Dragonite or just a Dragonair? If Dragonite, then go for it but if not then definitely wait for the full 125 candies.

    Anybody know some good locations for catching Dratini? Been visiting nests recently but I've not read or heard about any Dratini nests .

    Why does it matter doing 25 now and 100 later compared to 25 and 100 immediately?

    I'm sure they weren't all THAT bad.
    Anyway, you know what you did wrong. Just don't let it happen again. =)

    I'm too impatient to wait for the full amount, but you might get a Pokemon with higher CP than the one you evolved while trying to collect the 100 candies.

    Visited a Charmander nest today, and the first Pokemon I got there was Blastoise 😄. *Also got a Poliwrath (stronger than the one I already had) and enough candies for Charmeleon. *Still like 80 candies away from Charizard though.

    Because in between that time you'll level up and almost certainly catch a better one. I've done it with so many Pokemon and wasted so many candies.

    If you're in London then Blackheath is a great Charmander nest, managed to get all 125 candies within about 5 hours or so.

    Ah I see. But well then getting 125 again rather than 100 is also not much more.

    True, but what's the point? You don't gain anything out of evolving it early but you have a potential loss of 25 candies - that could power up your Dragonite 6-8 times.

    In the end, do whatever you feel is best. I'm just giving my advice .

    I have 800+ candies and not seen a single Magikarp over CP 136. I'm level 21 as well. What about you?

    Fair point. Just impatient I guess.

    I guess I'm just unlucky then. I honestly have caught 200 magikarps and all of them less than CP136, what a joke

    Yeah, that's a joke. On around 200 candy (and already have a Gyarados) and I've had 163 as my highest, but it had poor IVs. Had 2 Magikarp that were 100% IVs, 146 and 150 I think.

    What resource you use for IVs? I used the one where you guess the circle but then went to the spreadsheet which should be more accurate but for almost all just gives a range.
