You are pretty much ready when you have all the attackers ready, and all the defenders are evolved completely. Also, the defenders must be powered up completely. If you have any Rare Candies left even after the aforesaid preparation, you don’t have much to do. All you can do is to save them for future endeavors. Also, you can consider spending them if you have any favorite Pokemon. That means you may spend them on the coolest Pokemon just because you like them.

Here are some clues;

  • Pokemon that are about to be 100% and you need to max them
  • Legendaries that are either perfect or close to being perfect and you need to power them up. You already know that Legendaries let you take a candy after walking for 20 KM. Needless to say that it is inefficient.
