After that, the step that you have to take may confuse you. The reason is because there is a question mark that you can find beside the evolve button when you are trying to turn Inkay into Malamar in Pokemon Go. If you are the players of the mainline games, you may remember that if you want to evolve the Kalos Pokemon, you need to turn your console upside down. So, this is the thing that you have to do. You need to turn your phone upside down to evolve Inkay into Malamar in Pokemon GO. Even though this method is weird, but it reflects the dual nature of the Dark and Psychic-type Pokemon.

According to Slash Gear, it is important for you to note that if you have the battery saver turned on, your screen may turn black when you turn your device upside down. So, you have to make sure to turn the battery saver off before you try to evolve Inkay. This pokemon will not evolve if there are not any buttons to tap. If you want to turn the battery saver off, you can do that by tapping your pokeball (center bottom) and then tapping the gear which is located in the upper right corner to access settings. In Settings, you have to find the option Battery Saver and then you have to make sure that the box is not checked. If you have evolved Inkay into Malamar, you are able to turn the battery saver back on.

According to the Gamerant, the time for this is until the end of the Spectacular Psychic Event on September 13 at 8 pm local time to be able to catch an Inkay easily. After that, it will be available in the wild but at a spawn rate which is significantly reduced.
