The “walking Pokemon” gameplay mechanic returns in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. It isn’t just there for show. It is also a way to get certain characters to evolve. For example, the Pawmi to Pawmo evolution is a standard one, but getting a Pawmo to evolve into Pawmot in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet involves going for a walk.
How to Evolve Pawmi into Pawmo in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
Getting a Pawmi to evolve into Pawmo in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is easy. You need to get it to level 18. At that point, it will evolve into Pawmo as usual.
Or, well, if you want to avoid this step… you can catch a Pawmo. I saw plenty of them in many areas around the game. They were especially prevalent around Porto Marinada last I looked. They also show up in three-star Tera Raids.
How to Evolve Pawmo into Pawmot in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
This option involves spending time with your Pawmo. Literally. You need to walk 1,000 steps with a Pawmo outside of its ball to evolve it into Pawmot, the final Pawmi evolution, in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Level doesn’t matter. The first time you level up after passing 1,000 steps, it will reach its final form.
Again, you don’t need to rely on evolution to get one. Parmots do appear in five and six-star Tera Raids.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are available for the Nintendo Switch.
