Out of the many Pokémon players will see in the Hisui region of Pokémon Legends: Arceus, one of the instantly recognizable mons will be Psyduck. This Water-type duck was first introduced in Generation I, along with its evolution Golduck. While Psyduck didn’t get much attention in the Gen 1 games, it did attract many fans in the Pokémon anime. Psyduck was Misty’s main Pokémon and was seen as a humorous character that fans loved to see on screen.

In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, fans can catch their own Psyduck. Whether this is because fans want to use the Water-type or just add it to their Pokédex, players will need to catch one at some point. They’ll also need to acquire its evolution, Golduck. The easiest way to do this is to catch a Psyduck and then evolve it into Golduck. Of course, that’s easier said than done, as players will need to follow the correct evolution method.

To see exactly how to evolve Psyduck into Golduck, players can keep reading the guide below.

  • Obsidian Fieldlands: The Heartwood
  • Coronet Highlands: Wayward Wood, Lonely Spring
