Evolution is the act of changing a Piñata into a different species, such as turning a Doenut into a Moojoo. Evolution is not the same as Variants, which are simply different colors of the same piñata species. Evolution occurs when specific requirements are met. Usually only one condition must be met, though some have slightly more complicated requirements. In addition, the Twingersnap and Fourheads cannot be evolved in this way, and the egg of a lower level in the Syrupent family must be hit at the correct time with the shovel. There are twelve extra species, each of which are only accessible through Evolution.
When a piñata evolves, its stats are reset to what a newborn adult of the species would have when becoming a resident, causing its Happiness Rating to reset to neutral, and all of its accessories, variants, requirements, and value to be removed or reset. It also acquires the label of the gardener who owns the garden containing the piñata.
Evolving your Pinatas
To get a Reddhott, first obtain a Taffly (make it a resident) then fly it through the flame of a Firebrand until it catches fire. Use the Watering can to extinguish the flames and the evolution process will take place. You can use any watering can, but make sure you catch it before the piñata extinguishes itself.
To get a Twingersnap, romance two Syrupents. Watch the egg, and right before it hatches it will bounce three times (do not get this confused with a regular egg jump) and on the third bounce, hit the egg with your shovel.
To get a Fourheads, romance two Twingersnaps. Watch the egg, and right before it hatches it will bounce three times (do not get this confused with a regular egg jump) and on the third bounce, hit the egg with your shovel.
PigxiePigxie is much different than all other evolutions, and should debatably not be considered one. You can obtain Pigxie by romancing a Rashberry and a Swanana. Keep in mind you can only romance the two with the Mystery Home and with romance candy.
