In Pokemon Legends: Arceus, you meet lots of new Pokemon. Some of them look different, like Hisuian forms of old ones, and there are new forms like Wyrdeer and Kleavor. To make some of them change, you need to do special things or use certain items. Let us talk about how to make Scyther, Hisuian Growlithe, and some other new Pokemon evolve in the game.
How to Evolve Scyther into Kleavor
To change Scyther into Kleavor, you need a special thing called Black Augurite. You can get it by battling Wild Graveler, which drops this stone sometimes. Look for a Graveler close to Bolderoll Slope in the Crimson Mirelands.
In the old games, Scyther could also become Scizor with something called a Metal Coat. Now, you do not need to trade it to someone with the item. Just use the Metal Coat on Scyther, and it will evolve. You can buy the Metal Coat from the trading post of Simona in Jubilife Village for almost 1,000 Merit Points.
How to Evolve Hisuian Growlithe
Changing Hisuian Growlithe is easy. You can find these Pokemon in the Cobalt Coastlands, which is the third big place you go to. To make Hisuian Growlithe turn into an Arcanine, use a Fire Stone on it. Sometimes, you can get a Fire Stone from red ore spots, or you can buy one from the trading post of Simona for about 1,000 Merit Points.
How to Evolve Stantler into Wyrdeer
Turning Stantler into Wyrdeer is something new in Pokemon Legends. To make it happen, your Stantler needs to use the Psyshield Bash move in the style of Agile 20 times.
How to Evolve Ursaring into Ursaluna
Ursaring can become Ursaluna in this game. To do that, you need to use a Peat Block on Ursaring when there is a full moon. You might find a Peat Block when looking for treasure in the Crimson Mirelands when swinging the Ursaluna mount.
How to change Sneasel into Sneasler
Sneasel can turn into Sneasler in this game. To do that, use a Hisuian Sneasel Razor Claw during the daytime. You can buy the Razor Claw from the trading post of Simona for about 1,400 Merit Points.
How to Evolve Petilil into Lilligant
Petilil can become Lilligant just like before. Use a Sun Stone on it, and it will evolve. You can get Sun Stones from the trading post of Simona for about 1,000 MP each.
How to Evolve Qwilfish into Overqwil
Just like Sneasel, Qwilfish in the Hisui area looks different and has a new form called Overqwil. To make it evolve, your Hisuian Qwilfish has to use the Barb Barrage move in Strong Style 20 times.
How you can make Basculin into Basculegion
Turning Basculin into Basculegion is a bit challenging. To do it, your Basculin needs to get hurt by its own moves a total of 294 times without getting knocked out. Some moves like Double-Edge (at level 43) and Wave Crash (at level 34) can make this happen.
If you get Pokemon Legends: Arceus on your Nintendo Switch before May 9, you can get some cool items. They will give you a special Baneful Fox mask and Growlithe kimono set for your character. If you have played other Pokemon games on your Switch, you might even get some extra goodies.
