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

Reddhott

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.

Candary

To get a Candary, you must feed a Buttercup flower to a Sparrowmint. In Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise, you must feed it a Dandelion flower, as feeding buttercup flowers will not work.

Lackatoad

To get a Lackatoad, feed a Nightshade Berry to a Lickatoad then hit it on the head with your shovel. Otherwise the Lickatoad will get sick.

Salamango

To get a Salamango, feed a Chili to a Newtgat.

Zumbug

To get a Zumbug, feed a Horstachio both a Blackberry and a Daisy.

Juicygoose

To get a Juicygoose, feed your Quackberry a Gooseberry.

Twingersnap

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.

Fourheads

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.

Pieena

To get a Pieena, feed a resident Pretztail a bone. You can buy bones, as well as obtain them.

Parmadillo

To get a Parmadillo, feed a resident Fudgehog a coconut.
