There are tons of strange and unique evolution methods introduced in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Whether you're punching tens of enemies with Rage Fist to evolve your Primeape, or collecting 999 coins to evolve your Gimmighoul, never before have there been so many different evolution methods in a Pokémon game. Three Pokémon that have a new evolution method unique to Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are Bramblin, Pawmo, and Rellor.
So, if you are struggling to decipher how you are supposed to evolve these Pokémon, look no further. This article will cover how to evolve Bramblin, Pawmo, and Rellor in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
How To Evolve Bramblin, Pawmo, and Rellor In Pokémon Scarlet & Violet
All three of Bramblin, Pawmo, and Rellor evolve via the same method in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. To evolve these Pokémon, you need to use the new Let's Go feature added in Generation IX. By pressing "ZR" on your Nintendo Switch controller, you can now let Pokémon out of their Poké Ball, allowing them to walk around with you.
To evolve these Pokémon, you first have to bring them out of their Poké Ball and have them walk a total of 1000 steps in Let's Go mode. If you run around with these Pokémon by your side, it should take no longer than a few minutes to hit the target number of steps. Make sure you specifically call out your Pokémon in Let's Go mode by pressing "ZR." If you press "R" to send them into battle, the steps will not count. Also, make sure you don't run too far away from your Pokémon, or they will go back into their Poké Ball, and you will have to call them out again. No riding around on Koraidon or Miraidon, unfortunately.
After you have run 1000 steps with these Pokémon, all you have to do is return them to their Poké Ball and level them up. You can do this either via battling with another Pokémon or by using an item like a Rare Candy or XP boost. Unfortunately, there is no in-game step counter like there was in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, for example. So, you will either have to count your steps manually (a little tricky considering Bramblin has no feet!) or estimate how long you have been running. Thirty minutes of walking should be more than enough steps to evolve your Pokémon.
And that's everything you need to know about evolving Bramblin, Pawmo, and Rellor in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Congratulations on getting your Brambleghast, Pawmot, and Rabsca!
