How to Power Up
From the Pokémon menu, select a Pokémon you wish to Power Up. If you have the required Candy and Stardust, simply tap Power Up to increase your Pokémon's CP level. Your resources will be consumed and your Pokémon's CP level will increase.
Stardust is obtained by catching Pokemon, hatching eggs or feeding a Pokemon in a Gym. It can also be obtained from Research Tasks and Training. There is bonus stardust gained if you catch or hatch during the correct weather.
Candy is a Pokémon specific item used to evolve your evolution-capable Pokémon. Evolving a Pokémon results in an immediate CP boost. At least one piece of Pokémon specific candy is also required for a basic CP Power Up.
