How to Evolve Tandemaus to Maushold in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Pokemon Scarlet Violet Maushold cover

Maushold is one of the newest Pokémon introduced in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. As the name suggests, it is a Pokémon resembling a family of mice that have grown in size ever since it evolved from being a Tandemaus. Although it is not a unique thing to see multiple creatures categorized as a single Pokémon, Maushold still offers something unique when it comes to having a rare form.

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

Where to get a Tandemaus

Tandemaus can be found in several areas in Paldea including South Province Area Two, around Artazon, and East Province Area Two.

How to Evolve a Tandemaus to a Maushold

To evolve a Tandemaus to a Maushold, you must first use a Tandemaus in battle and beat at least one Pokémon with it. Afterwards, level it up to level 25 and up to trigger the evolution to a Maushold.

How to Get the Maushold Forms

Maushold has two different forms; Family of Four and Family of Three. The Family of Four form is the most common form between the two, adding two kids in the family. On the other hand, the Family of Three form where only one kid is present is so rare that players can only get in 1 out of around 100 evolutions. This is predetermined in a Tandemaus’ encryption constant value at the time that they spawn, so saving and resetting prior to evolving will not change the outcome.

There’s nothing distinctly different between the two forms other than their weights, with the Family of Four form being obviously heavier.
