Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: How to evolve Aipom into Ambipom

If you’ve embarked on the adventure of playing Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, specifically delving into the Teal Mask DLC, you’ve likely encountered the mischievous Aipom. This playful primate Pokémon, originating from Generation II, has garnered significant popularity among trainers. Sporting a Normal-type classification, Aipom also possesses an undeniably adorable appearance.

However, if your goal is to transform Aipom into its more formidable evolution, Ambipom, there’s a special technique you should be aware of.

Evolving Aipom into Ambipom in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is a straightforward process that hinges on Aipom acquiring a specific move known as “Double Hit.” Unlike many other Pokémon evolutions that can be achieved through leveling up or the use of special items, Aipom follows a slightly different path. Once Aipom has successfully learned the Double Hit move, you simply need to level it up once more, and voilà, you’ll have yourself an Ambipom, which can be considered a more sophisticated iteration of Aipom.

If you happen to capture an Aipom that already possesses the Double Hit move, consider yourself fortunate. In this case, all that’s left to do is level it up, and your Ambipom will emerge in no time. However, if your Aipom does not possess this coveted move, fear not. Keep Aipom as a part of your team and engage in battles. As Aipom gains experience and levels up through battles, it will eventually learn the Double Hit move, typically occurring when it reaches level 32.

One notable feature of The Teal Mask DLC is its intelligent scaling. The Pokémon you encounter within the DLC are generally aligned with the current level of your team, irrespective of how far you’ve progressed in the main storyline. Consequently, if you commence the DLC content after conquering the main game, you’re likely to come across Aipom that has already surpassed level 32. In such cases, if Aipom has not yet learned Double Hit, it should acquire the move shortly through the standard leveling process. In essence, it’s merely a matter of leveling up your Aipom.

In conclusion, there you have it—a straightforward method for evolving Aipom in the new DLC of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Equip your Aipom with the Double Hit move, and you’ll soon have the pleasure of commanding your impressive Ambipom in battles. So, venture forth, impart the Double Hit knowledge to your Aipom, and relish the exciting capabilities of your newfound Ambipom companion.

How to evolve Swadloon into Leavanny in Scarlet & Violet

Swadloon evolves into Leavanny in Scarlet & Violet through leveling up with high friendship after reaching level 20.

Boosting Swadloon’s friendship is key to this evolution. You can increase friendship by having Swadloon in your party while walking around, giving it items, participating in auto-battles, and even washing it during picnics. Engaging in battles also contributes to friendship, but be cautious not to let Swadloon faint.

For a quicker friendship boost, equip Swadloon with a Soothe Bell. Catching a Sewaddle or Swadloon in a Luxury Ball accelerates the process, but if you can find a Friend Ball (though rare), it provides a significant head start in terms of friendship points.

To gauge your progress, visit the Friendship Checker in Cascarrafa. Look for a lady with a Marill in the center of the city north of the fountain. While she won’t provide an exact number, when she mentions, “You’re good friends, all right!” you’re either close to or ready for evolution.

After reaching the necessary friendship level, all that’s left is to level up Swadloon to trigger the evolution.

Where to Find Sewaddle in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

Sewaddle is available as soon as you enter Kitakami. It resides in grassy areas and, due to its small size and green coloring, can be somewhat challenging to spot. However, there are plenty of Sewaddle crawling around the southern region of Kitakami, making it relatively easy to find.

Swadloon can also be caught but is rarer and found in fewer locations. You can encounter Swadloon in the southwest and southeast corners of the map, also within grassy areas.

How to Evolve Swadloon into Leavanny

Leavanny, the final evolution of Sewaddle, is highly sought after by many players. It can be obtained either in the wild or through evolution. However, the evolution process is slightly more complex than typical evolutions. Instead of merely leveling up, you must ensure that Swadloon has a high friendship level to trigger the transformation into Leavanny.

There are several methods to increase friendship in the game, such as walking with your Pokemon and arranging picnics. For a comprehensive guide on raising friendship, refer to our complete guide here. If you prefer to find Leavanny in the wild, it inhabits the same areas as Swadloon, near Mossfell Confluence and Wistful Fields. Nonetheless, evolving Swadloon directly is recommended as encountering Leavanny in the wild is relatively uncommon.
