Evolution is the act of changing a Piñata into a different species. Evolution occurs when specific requirements are met. There are 12 extra species, each of which are only accessible through Evolution. Evolution is not the same as Variants, which are simply different colors of the same species.

When a piñata evolves, its stats are reset to what a newborn adult of the species would have it, causing it Happiness Rating to reset to neutral, and all of its accessories, variants, requirements, and value to be removed or reset. It also acquires the player tag 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.

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.
