How to Evolve Bramblin to Brambleghast in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Pokemon Scarlet Violet Brambleghast cover

Brambleghast is one of the newest Pokémon that is introduced in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. It evolves from Bramblin, but not in the conventional way like most of the Pokémon

In this guide, we will talk about how to evolve Bramblin to a Brambleghast and share some tips and tricks on how to get one early on in the game.

Where to get a Bramblin

Bramblins can be seen rolling in the East Province (Area 3) and in the Asado Desert.

How to Evolve a Bramblin to a Brambleghast

To obtain a Brambleghast, you must have a Bramblin in your party as the lead Pokémon and then send it out to make it walk with you (ZR button). Once it’s out, you must walk at least 1,000 steps with it, then make it level up by gaining XP or by feeding it a Rare Candy.

The location where you walk does not matter whether it’s in a city or in the wild. Though it is possible to walk the Pokémon while riding Koraidon or Miraidon, it’s not much of a faster method as the Pokémon you’re walking with will get back in its ball once you’re too far away from it, and most of them cannot even keep up with the player’s run speed.

Additionally, Brambleghasts can be seen in the wild in the northern parts of Paldea, albeit the chances are very slim.
