How to Evolve Charcadet in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Embarking on your adventure in the enchanting worlds of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, you’ll encounter the intriguing Charcadet, a fire-type Pokémon with a unique evolutionary journey. This guide aims to simplify the process, ensuring your transformation of Charcadet into either Armarouge or Ceruledge is seamless and rewarding.

Finding and Catching Charcadet:

  1. Pokémon Scarlet:
    • Explore various locations in Paldea such as the South Province (Areas Three, Four, Five), East Province (Areas One, Two, Three, Tagtree Thicket), and West Province (Areas One, Two, Three, Asado Desert) to find Charcadet.
    • Engage in Tera Raid battles to increase your chances of encountering Charcadet.
  2. Pokémon Violet:
    • Similarly, explore locations in Paldea, including the South and East Provinces, to find Charcadet.
    • Participate in Tera Raid battles for additional opportunities to capture Charcadet.

Evolving Charcadet:

  1. Pokémon Scarlet (Evolving into Armarouge):
    • Acquire the “Auspicious Armor” item. Visit Zapacico, and trade ten Bronzor fragments with a man near a fountain.
    • Give the obtained Auspicious Armor to Charcadet to trigger its evolution into Armarouge.
    • Alternatively, encounter Armarouge in the wild in South Province, Area Two, or through high-level Tera Raid battles.
  2. Pokémon Violet (Evolving into Ceruledge):
    • Obtain the “Malicious Armor” item by trading ten Sinistea chips with a woman near the fountain in Zapacico.
    • Offer the Malicious Armor to Charcadet to facilitate its evolution into Ceruledge.
    • Ceruledge, unlike Armarouge, is not found in the open world. You may encounter it through Tera Raid battles.

Getting Both Evolutions:

  • To obtain both evolutions, consider trading with a friend who has the opposite game version, allowing each of you to obtain the version-exclusive evolution.
  • Alternatively, participate in online Tera Raid battles, although this method can be more challenging and less reliable.

Important Tips:

  • Ensure Charcadet is in your party when giving it the respective armor for a successful evolution.
  • The evolution process is irreversible, so choose wisely if you have only one Charcadet.

Embark on your Pokémon journey with the knowledge of Charcadet’s evolution, and may your adventures in Paldea be filled with excitement and discovery!
