The Up-Grade is required to evolve certain Pokémon in Pokémon GO:

Up-Grades can be obtained starting at level 10 by searching PokéStops or Gyms. While normally rare, from March 21, 2017 onward, the player is guaranteed to find an Evolution item when obtaining the bonus for spinning a Photo Disc for the seventh day in a row.

The Up-Grade was added to Pokémon GO on February 16, 2017.
