How many candies should I accumulate before I evolve a Larvitar?  The candies are hard to gather and I want to evolve at the perfect candy moment.  any suggestions, or comments on trying to up the Larvitar IV before I evolve?  My current best Larvitar is shown below.

I agree. All the way to Tyranitar. Then you will know, based on the move set, whether to invest any more resources in. Do you have any others in the family?

I think with Poke Genie you can check the CP/Candies/Stardusts needed to power up to what lvl. But I’ll evolve to find out move set before I waste more candies/stardusts on it.

Many sites out there can help you calculate the total cost of evolving/leveling up to your desired level.  I like gamepress’s IV and CP calculators. Start with their IV calculator to get the exact level and IVs, and then use the CP calculator to figure out how much dust and candy it will take to power it up.  https://pokemongo.gamepress.gg/cpcalc#/

 

I agree with everybody that 93 is good enough to evolve now and check the moves before deciding whether to power up further.  If you feel like being patient, though, that’s fine, too.  Use the IV/CP calculators to check the costs of leveling a level 20 up to your desired level, because your most likely to hatch rather than catch anything with better IVs.

Actually, if you choose to be patient, I might come over there and steal it.:-) 93 IV is fantastic. Of course, you will probably hatch a 94 IV or higher right after evolving the 93. But who knows? At most, wait til the event is almost over. If you haven’t gotten a better one by then, evolve away. And this is coming from a guy who is typically rigid when it comes to how high I need a mons IV to be in order to pull the trigger on evolve. If this is your first one, I would go for it immediately. If you get a better one later, you’ll just have to be stuck with 2 Tyranitar. Bummer.:-)

Yep, I would really hate to get stuck with 2 high IV Tyranitar 🙂
