How to get Pokemon Legends: Arceus New Evolved Pokemon

Pokemon Legends: Arceus recently introduced a variety of new Pokemon to the series, including hisuian forms of classic monsters, as well as some entirely new evolutions such as Kleavor and Wyrdeer. Many of these evolutions are triggered in new ways or with specific items, and next, we’ll give you a brief look at how to evolve Scyther, Hisuian Growlithe, and Pokemon Legends: Some other notable new monsters in Arceus.

How to evolve Scyther into Kleavor

Scyther has a new alternative form of evolution in Pokemon Legends called Kleavor. To trigger evolution, simply use Black Augurite on the scythe. Wild Graveler occasionally drops this stone when defeated, so you’ll need to fight as much as you can. Graveler can often be found near Bolteroll Slope in Crimson Mirelands, which makes it a great place to grow this crop.

As in past games, Scyther can alternatively evolve into Scizor using the Metal Coat. This time, however, you no longer need to equip Scyther with the item and trade it to another player to trigger the evolution; you simply use the Metal Coat on the Pokemon to evolve it. You can purchase one from Simona’s trading post in Jubilife Village for 1,000 Merit Points.

How to evolve Hisuian Growlithe

Hisuian Growlithe is one of several new regional variants introduced in Pokemon Legends. These critters can be found in the Cobalt Coastlands, the third major area you’ll visit during the adventure. Like a typical Growlithe, you simply need to use a Fire Stone on the Pokemon to evolve it into Arcanine. You can obtain a Fire Stone occasionally from red ore deposits or purchase one from Simona’s trading post for 1,000 Merit Points.

How to evolve Stantler into Wyrdeer

Although Stantler couldn’t evolve in previous games, the deer Pokemon is able to evolve into the aforementioned Wyrdeer in Pokemon Legends. You can trigger the evolution after your Stantler uses the Psyshield Bash attack in Agile Style 20 times.

How to evolve Ursaring into Ursaluna

Ursaring has also received a new evolution in Pokemon Legends called Ursaluna. To evolve Ursaring, you must use the Peat Block on it during a full moon. You have a small chance of finding a Peat Block when you dig for treasure around the Crimson Mirelands while riding the Ursaluna mount.

How to evolve Sneasel into Sneasler

Sneasel also has a different regional variant in Pokemon Legends, and it’s able to evolve into an entirely new Pokemon named Sneasler. To trigger the evolution, you must use a Razor Claw on Hisuian Sneasel during the day. You can purchase the item from Simona’s trading post for 1,400 Merit Points.

How to evolve Petilil into Lilligant

Lilligant is another Pokemon to receive a new Hisuian form in Pokemon Legends, but the method for evolving it remains the same. As in previous games, you can evolve Petilil by using a Sun Stone on it. You can purchase these stones from Simona’s trading post for 1,000 MP apiece.

How to evolve Qwilfish into Overqwil

Much like Sneasel, Qwilfish in the Hisui region have a different appearance and typing, and this variant is able to evolve into a brand-new Pokemon called Overqwil. To trigger the evolution, your Hisuian Qwilfish must use the Barb Barrage attack in Strong Style 20 times.

How to evolve Basculin into Basculegion

Basculin is one of the tricker Pokemon to evolve in the game. In order to evolve it into Basculegion, your Basculin must take a total of 294 recoil damage without fainting. The Pokemon can learn several moves that inflict recoil damage, including Wave Crash (at level 34) and Double-Edge (at level 43).

Pokemon Legends: Arceus is now available on the Nintendo Switch and offers some additional rewards for early players. Every player who gets a quest before May 9 can claim a special Growlithe kimono suit and Baneful Fox mask for their character. If you’ve played other Pokemon games on Switch, you’ll also get some other in-game rewards.
