How to obtain Litten in Pokemon Go
Currently, the only way to get Litten in Pokemon Go is by encountering it in the wild. Sometimes, Pokemon like Litten get featured in Community Day events or Spotlight Hours, but this is the only way to catch it at the moment.
Luckily, the Dark Flames event boosted the chances of encountering Litten in the wild until July 2, 2023. Additionally, completing the Dark Flames Timed Research will reward you with 50 Litten Candy. You have to catch Litten and evolve it into Incineroar to complete the Dark Flames Collection Challenge, so you’ll need all the Candy you can get. The good news is that you’ll get them no matter which path you choose.
Pokemon Go’s Dark Flames event focuses on Dark and Fire type Pokemon.

To evolve Litten into Torracat, Pokemon Go players need to spend 25 Litten Candy. If you have 25 or more Candy, the ‘Evolve’ button will appear green so you can tap it.
How to evolve Torracat into Incineroar in Pokemon Go
To evolve Torracat intro Incineroar, Pokemon Go players need to spend 100 Litten Candy. You won’t be able to press the ‘Evolve’ button until you have enough Candy, so we recommend using Pinap or Silver Pinap Berries when catching Litten. Transfering Litten with low stats will also give you one Candy, so keep that in mind.
To summarize, this means you’ll need a total of 125 Litten Candy to evolve Litten into Incineroar.
