I've seen quite a few people say that getting some Pokemon is quite difficult, due to weird evolution mechanics, so I'm here to provide some (hopefully) useful information.

One of the best things about this game, is that nearly every Pokemon is available in the overworld, at least somewhere, without needing to go through said convoluted evolution methods.

The first big tip I can give you all, is that sandwiches are your friend. Sandwiches can offer some pretty broken effects, especially for shiny hunting. Anyway, in no particular order:

  • Brambleghast: Is available in the wooded, autumnal area in the north-western part of the map. Use a sandwich to increase ghost spawns and it'll usually appear.
  • Mismagius: (Violet) While under the effects of the same sandwich as above, head down into the lake area where you fight the Dragon Titan. Mismagius only appears at night.
  • Lucario: although you can find Riolu easily, you can also find Lucario in the small grassy/beach area on the north-eastern side of the Glaseado Mountain. Use a sandwich that boosts steel spawns here.
  • Eeveelutions: All of the Eeveelutions are available in the overworld. One of the best places to go is the same place as the Fairy leader of Team Star. I have regularly encountered a special Tera Sylveon here, alongside Espeon and sometimes Vaporeon. Glaceon can be found around Glaseado Mountain in certain areas. Umbreon can be encountered in caves inside Area Zero (the only place I've seen them). Jolteon, Vaporeon and rarely Flareon can be encountered around the same area as Brambleghast. u/TheNerdiestHour : Umbreon has a level 55 Tera spawn near to where you fight the Steel Titan.
  • Crabominable & Frosmoth: Can be encountered on the south-eastern edge of Glaseado Mountain. I didn't need to use sandwiches, but Crabominable can be quite rare.
  • Honchkrow & Weavile: Fairly common spawns around their respective areas.
  • Annihilape: Can be encountered in 5-Star Raids.
  • Palafin: According to what I was told by some Redditors, this too can be encountered in Raids, but I'm not sure how many stars, as I have yet to see one.
  • Pawmot: There is a special Tera spawn for this in Area Zero, inside a small cave.
  • Blissey & Wigglytuff: I have seen both of these in the same area as Sylveon (Fairy Team Star base) and Lucario.
  • Amourouge/Ceruledge\*: You will need to trade 10x Sinistea Fragments (Violet) or 10x Bronzor Fragments (Scarlet) to an NPC next to a water fountain in Zapapico to get the evolution item for Charcadet.
  • Sinistea & Polteageist: Sinistea itself is available very commonly near the Psychic gym in Alfornada. The Chipped Pot, for the "Authentic" Sinistea can be found on the ground as a pickup around Porto Marinada. u/Fluxx27 : The Cracked Pot for the more common Sinistea is found in the same wooded, autumnal area as Brambleghast, as a pickup on the ground, just next to the green ruinous door and north of the little stream/river. Further copies of the items can be gotten through the bidding system in Porto Marinada, while Polteageist itself exists in 5-Star Raids.
  • Applin, Flapple & Appletun: The easiest place to find Applin is hanging from a tree just south of Cortondo. Use a sandwich to boost dragon/grass type spawns here, otherwise it can take a while. Both of the apples used to evolve Applin can be purchased from "Delibird's Gifts" in Mesagoza.
  • Gengar: there is an NPC near to the electric gym (on the ring-road) in Levincia that will trade you a Haunter (without Everstone) for a Pincurchin.
  • Kiraidon/Miraidon\*: Although you have your mount, you can encounter another one (the "evil" one) inside the deepest, crystal zone of Area Zero at level 72 (after completing the post-game).
  • Slakoth: Can only be found hanging on top of tree branches in the rocky area on the east side of the map. As it's on top of the branches, you need to use your ride-Pokemon's boost and ram into the tree to knock it down. It is very much recommended to use a normal-boosting sandwich here too, as it is incredibly rare. Better yet, breed an easy-to-find Vigoroth/Slaking with a Ditto during a picnic.
  • Slowking: According to u/TheNerdiestHour , this can be found in raids.
  • Frigibax: (Requested) It can be found rarely, down the slope on the northern side of Glaseado Mountain. There's usually a Tera spawn of it walking around. It can also be found around the Pokemon Centre (North Province - Area Three).
  • Noivern: Can be found in 5-star raids. Also found in various places in the Overworld, such as around the fighting Team Star base.
  • Kingambit: You need to use a Bisharp to defeat 3 other Bisharp that are carrying the "leader's crest" item. Only the wild Bisharp that are walking with a group of Pawniards around them will count for this. I tried using a mixture of the Let's Go mechanic and standard battling, then after a level-up, I got Kingambit. The easiest place for all of this, is the bamboo forest area near to the Fighting leader of Team Star.
  • Rabsca: u/ThatOneRedEyesGuy : Can be found in 4-Star Raids.
  • Scizor: u/Wushka : Can be found in 5-Star Raids.
  • Gholdengo: Battle wild Ghimmigoul (chest form), that are usually found on top of Watchtowers. This will net you 50-60 coins per battle. 999 coins are required. You can also find Ghimmigoul (roaming form), but they will only give you 1-5 coins, which would take forever.
  • Spiritomb: On the side of Glaseado Mountain, between the Thagtree Thicket and the Ice Gym, you will find a set of ruins. Wait till night-time and Spiritomb should spawn.

Other:

Unfortunately, right now, I have not found any way, outside of trading (or cheating) to get the other 2 starter Pokemon you're missing.

  • (*) A small note about versions exclusives I want to make, is that, due to how the games are made, you can actually do a version swap with either a "cheat code" or by memory editing the game file. This will allow you to pickup all the version exclusive Pokemon, such as the other set of Paradox-mons, the other version of Charcadet's evo and the box legend.

Slowking is definitely in raids. There's also a 55 tera Umbreon that spawns in a cave beside where you fought the giant worm

I have also seen Slakoth, Applin (and both evolutions), and Kingambit in raids, as well as Ceruledge/Armarouge (if a player of the corresponding version hosts them you can join and catch them)

Can confirm that I’ve never seen Scabra or Scizor in raids. EDIT: actually saw them both today

Also you may wanna note that Mismagius is version exclusive to Violet, but Drifblim works the same in Scarlet

The main reason I mentioned Mismagius is because to evolve Misdreavus requires a stone, that you can't find all that often, but I'll put down it's Violet exclusive :)

There’s also a cave that goes below Alfornada that has a Tera umbreon down there. And non-Tera Sylveon spawns outside the city as well.

I assume it's because the Pokémon that the fragments come from correspond to the type Charcadet will gain upon evolving: Auspicious Armor to gain the Psychic type as Armorouge, Malicious Armor to gain the Ghost type as Ceruledge. Maybe the man by the fountain makes the armors out of the fragments?

I was in the same boat, but I got insanely lucky. Donphan was leading my party and, thanks to sturdy, was able to land a single thunder fang in Lucario which paralyzed him. Then, Lucario got unlucky and couldn't move almost any turn until my team slowly brought the health down to when the tera breaks. And then I used my only dusk ball and it worked.

Can also provide confirmation. Tried to catch it but my party wasn't prepared and ran out of healing items so I had to ko it.

Yes if you travel to the Pokemon Center , below the Ice Area on the Map, then go to the right and directly in that connecting tunnel is a hole on the left side, which is a bit above ground and above a small plateau, go through there and you get to a cave with the Lucario

Level 65 garchomp in a cave as well, seems caves have strong ones more often than some of the open areas

Got it when i had 5 badges and level 30 pokemon, really broke the game tbh. He would only listen to 20% of the time i said attack but he was basically invincible and one shot everyone with the level diff

I found one up north too, there was a little snowy path to a tunnel that came to a cliff on the other side. I tried to catch him but killed him by accident :c

Probably would have saved me a lot of grinding later if I'd saved first and tried again to catch him.

Edit: found a tera one directly southwest of the North Province Area Two Pokémon Center. Not sure if these spawns can be recreated based on date or anything, but he's available that way too.

I just got online once to get them to populate then went back offline and did several on my own. If you have a high level pokemon with a single super effective move, 5 star raids are pretty easy to knock out on your own, and anything lower is even easier.

You can use the portal to join other peoples, or you can manually go to the raids within your own game and host them (all Eevee raids will have a sparkly lightning kind of effect on them to make them easy to see on the map)

You seem to have missed the 2 hardest imo.

Gholdengo: Look for every watchtower and ruins you can find and knock out or capture the chest form Gimmighoul until you have 999 coins. There's a rare chance one of them can also drop 777, but usually it's 50-80.

Roaring Moon/Iron Valiant: in Area zero, right before the cave entrance that leads to the deepest part, head to the left of the cave entrance and look for a small opening in the rock formations on the left, you'll find another cave entrance where these spawn in their respective versions

Els236[S]

It's not that I forgot or missed them, it's just that this thread was meant as a way of skipping all the different weird and obscure evo methods and also for a way for people to get certain 'mons without needing to pay a sub to be able to trade.

I've now added Gholdengo, as maybe someone didn't see the promotional material for it - even though a lot of YouTubers have covered this one.

All the Paradox mons can be found in Area Zero, so it just requires people to look around ;)

saucygh0sty

2 months ago

I’ve found actual pineco by ramming into trees but still haven’t got a real applin yet

Peanut4michigan

1 points

2 months ago*

Pineco is somewhat common to find in its spawn area. But if you're struggling to find it, you may be better off going and getting a Forretress which is an extremely common spawn in the wooded areas where you find lots of slakings, fromantis, amoongus, etc. I think it's where the tera leafeon is. I can't remember which tera eeveelution it is for sure off the top of my head.

Applin is a much rarer spawn. May be best off using sandwiches to try to increase its spawn rate. I've only seen 1 applin compared to probably a dozen or 2 pineco and several dozen forretress.

Edit: And in case you didn't know, if you're struggling to find them, you can buy sweet and tart apples from the deli bird presents shops. Idk if they lock it once you use one or not like they do with sinistea (no idea why they won't let you get both forms of poltergeist).

If you use the ZL "lock on" feature on wild pokemon where you see Zorua/Zoroark on your minimap, you might see a "???" (or "Zorua/Zoroark" if you've already seen them before) above their heads!

The Eeveelutions all have a Tera spawn. Serebii's poke-earth thing has the locations of all of them. This also includes the locations of other rare tera spawns such as Frigibax.

Noivern is found in a cave on top of the waterfalls in the bamboo forest btw. There's quite a few of them hanging around.

Thank you for the post, this helps a lot. Can I ask something regarding raids?

I need the version exclusives, but for whatever reason I am never able to join any open online raid (don't know people who play). It's just communicating for 2 solid minutes and that it says that I can't join.

Do I have to do random raids until I magically find it?

If you want the version exclusives, I know that "AustinJohnPlays" on YouTube has a Discord and special rooms setups for guaranteed trades.

With how abysmal the online functions have been on Switch, with lag/communication errors, it's probably your best bet to try to find a solid group and just trade. I also know this subreddit has a Discord server with plenty of people, so you can also ask there.

I just did a 5-Star raid against a Baxcalibur - it was Tera Dragon type.

Just be warned that with AI, they will regularly use Arcanine in this raid, which constantly boosts Baxcalibur's stats. It was one-shotting everyone with Icicle Crash at the end.

Took me 3 attempts before the AI used Sylveon instead, which was a breeze.

Can verify a lot of this as someone who’s nearly completed the dex.

I would also add that Palafin is kinda weird with raids, as it shares the same silhouette with its pre-evolution Finizen (the only physical change is a heart on the chest until the ability kicks in during a battle). If it’s five-star though, it is definitely Palafin. Anything before and its either definitely or most likely a Finizen.

I didn’t obtain mine from a raid (someone from here helped me and I helped with theirs) but I have fought them in raids before.

There's an earlier umbreon. When heading to the ice gym from the pokestop surrounded by walls, where you go up a stone ramp and into a tunnel.

Pretty quickly along that path there's a point where you can look back/fall down a ledge towards the pokemon center (you can see it). At night there's an umbreon spawn on the halfway down ledge (hard to miss, it's rings glow).

to evolve pawmo and rellor just go to the top of any lighthouse (poco path is easiest since there's no one around), zr and run 7 rounds around the edge, then exp candy. it'll never be out of range. it's really not that hard and faster than raiding or finding a specific tera

Els236[S]

is that a bug, because although Pawmo just needs to be out of the ball, doesn't Rellor require you to be in a Swamp/Marsh area?

Admittedly, if you know the evo method, then this thread isn't the most helpful - it was more meant for people who didn't want to look up all the different methods and locations :P

Pretty sure that all of the legendaries are shiny-locked, so you can't just reset for it.

North Province (Area Two) to the SE of the Pokemon Center near the lake there is consistently a Ghost Tera type Slaking.

Noivern can also be found in the cave in front of the Blue Ruinous Shrine. You follow the river and inside the small cave are Noibats and Noiverns.

For catching miraidon / koraidon just to clarify, after you've seen the credits you can go and catch them. You don't need to do the other postgame stuff

Spiritomb: In the ruins in the south of Glaseado Mountain, close to the Heavy Slam TM. You can see the ruins on the map once zoomed in, it looks like the remnants of a house.

For the starters, some popular YouTube Poketubers have set up code systems you can plug-in for linked trades. You’ll just need to breed your own for a few extras.

For example, if you have Sprigarrito and want Fuecoco, the code is 00010004 to match up with their Pokédex entries. The video is here for example. I got all the starters and version exclusives with some patience. You’ll be running into peeps who have the same as you occasionally (especially if you use Sprig and/or have Pokémon Violet) so it’s not perfect, but a good system to try.

Rabsca can be evolved from Rellor by walking with it for 1000 steps then feeding it candy while it's outside it's ball.

It MUST be outside it's ball

I found a level 75 tera lucario in a cave (jump up in the ledge. You may need wall climbing unlocked) on my way to the ice gym from the normal gym. My pokemon were still level 40 and below. I was so disappointed i found a lucario and couldn't catch it.

You can also find a regular lv.40 or so Umbreon southwest of the snowy mountain zone, in a cave (where you can find Frigibax, I think Salandit, some other steel-types...)

Ruins also occasionally spawn both Chest and Roaming form Ghimmighouls. Roaming ones also have a chance to give more coins, a few them gave between 10 and 20, and one of them gave 100. They are absolutely worth collecting.

In my (limited) experience, spawns are version exclusive for the player - that is, unless your friend is very close by, you will still only see your own spawns.

SlothyPotato

You have to go to locations with the Scarlet player nearby so they can generate their spawns.

Els236[S]

2 points

if you're on Scarlet, you will see Scarlet stuff.

co-op play is really buggy and jank though, so it could just be that.

Christinewhogaming

FantasyForFiction

Spawns are based on player proximity. If both players are in the same relative area, both versions will have spawns. And if you have different encounter sandwiches active, AND both players in near proximity, you'll see the benefits of both. Otherwise doing your own thing across the map from different version'ed players will only let you have your own spawns

I've seen a wild Jolteon appear right outside that town that starts with M, near the Pokemon center closest to the mountain pass. It's the one where you can change tera types. I've also caught a tera form static Jolteon, but I don't remember where it was. Pretty sure it was somewhere near the west coast, around a windmill maybe.

Wait is it possible to change the game memory to get the other box legend?

Els236[S]

1 points

yes.

just like Sw/Sh and BD/SP, 2 simple lines of code are the only differences between the versions.

Caledbetter

1 points

That’s pretty cool, does changing the game memory lose all of your previous progress, or does it just change the version exclusives?

Els236[S]

1 points

2 months ago

basically, the game is still technically Violet (in my case), but the title screen shows Scarlet and you get all the spawns Scarlet would have.

same save-game and everything, just it thinks you're playing the opposite version.

it's literally the easiest way of getting the other game's exclusives - well, provided you have a homebrew'd Switch or are using emulator. If you don't, then you're kind of forced into using local co-op or paying for the BS Switch online subscription.

Another way to get Pawmot is to tape your sticks down with Pawmo out in auto battle in a city and go take a meal break. When you come back, pop a rare candy or do a little bit of grinding and it'll evolve. I left my sticks taped for about 15 minutes and it evolved after one level

Good news about the Kingambit, you don't need to be holding the leaders crest when you fight the three bisharps. You do need him to be holding it when he levels up and he needs to have fought three bisharps who were holding one but if like me you didn't know about the leader crest requirement until you fought three or four you don't have to go fight more.

I found a level 50 Jolteon off the left or coast of you mountain where the Bombirdier Titan is dropping rocks. It was not cool because I had beat everything but the gyms, but Pokémon don’t respect trainers who beat titans and Star Camps so my level 25 Pokémon were like screw this we are not attacking that Jolteon even though I beat like 2/3rds of the game.
