Pokémon Scarlet and Violet: How to evolve Girafarig


POKÉMON has already revealed the new evolution for Girafarig called Farigiraf.

There are a number of new evolutions for existing Pokémon, including fan favourite Dunsparce.

Farigiraf is here!

However, not only is Girafarig difficult to evolve, but it can be hard to even find one.

If you want Farigiraf in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, then here’s how to get one.

Where to find Girafarig in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

It’s not available in many areas, but Girafarig is a fairly common spawn in a specific field to the east of Porto Marinada.

Unlike Dunsparce, Girafarig are fairly aggro and will charge at you at full pace making them easy to encounter.

However, the catch rate is fairly low, so getting it to stay in the ball might be a challenge.

Try to status it, or use False Swipe to get it down to low HP in order to catch it.

A Quick Ball the first turn of battle, or a Dusk Ball at night are also good alternatives.

How to evolve Girafarig in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Like Dunsparce, you will need to first reach level 32 in order to evolve Girafarig.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet have the built XP share, so it will gain experience, even if it’s just in your party.

It will gain more experience if it enters battle, but will still get some experience if you catch a Pokémon.

Raids also reward you with experience candy, which can be used to quickly level up your Pokémon.

How to learn Twin Beam in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

At level 32, Girafarig can learn its signature move Twin Beam. This is needed in order to evolve it.

If you missed teaching Twin Beam, you can still teach it through the select moves panel in the menu.

Once your Girafarig knows Twin Beam, level it up once more for it to evolve into Farigiraf.
