Pokemon Scarlet and Violet have finally been released, bringing with them a vast new world, a wide variety of new Pokemon, and a vast number of new mysteries to solve. 

If you have Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, you might have caught a Charcadet and want to evolve it. This brand-new Pokemon, which debuted in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, has a unique evolving process that can be perplexing at first if you don’t know what you’re doing.

Despite the somewhat uncommon evolution of Charcadet, it’s quite easy and will be worth your while once this Pokemon reaches its next form. Here is all the information you’ll need to learn how to evolve Charcadet.

Who is Charcadet?

Pokemon Violet and Scarlet are packed with new Pokemon for players to discover and capture in the Paldea region. Charcadet is a tiny red knight-like Pokemon that has the potential to be extremely powerful. Charcadet can evolve into one of two different forms, depending on which version of the game you have.

In Scarlet, Charcadet can evolve into Armarouge, a Fire/Psychic Type Pokemon. Or Creuledge, a Fire/Ghost Type Pokemon, in Violet. To evolve Charcadet, you must first obtain a special item, regardless of which version you have on your device.

Only while holding a particular item does this small Pokemon evolve. The Auspicious Armor and the Malicious Armor are version-specific, making Charcadet’s evolutions incompatible with Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, respectively.

But before thinking about how to evolve Charcadet, first, you have to catch it.

How to Catch Charcadet

To move on to the next step. Here is the information you need if you haven’t caught it already. Charcadet is a peculiar Pokemon that can be found in some different areas in Paldea, and Charcadet is also rather rare.

They consistently occur alone in very certain places. If you locate a Charcadet in the wild, you may be sure that if you return later, another one will also be there.

The majority of the southern part of Paldea is listed as the species’ habitat in the Pokedex article for Charcadet. Based on experience, South Providence Area Three, which is situated immediately to the east of Mesagoza, is where Charcadet is the easiest to locate.

Despite their tiny size, which can make them hard to see, their vivid red color helps to make them more visible. To aid in this effort, you can also eat food that increases your chances of catching fire-type Pokemon.

If you spend any time at all investigating the area, there is a very good chance that you may come across a wild Charcadet somewhere. Look for any cracks and crevices in the ground; these are potential spots to discover them.

Get yourself to Cortondo in South Province to see one example in detail (Area Two). Take the route up the hill from the Pokemon Center at the town’s western edge. There is an entry cut out of the corner of the rock at the first hairpin turn.

You can find a Charcadet by passing through there and entering a little area. It is level 16, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to catch for many trainers.

Evolving Charcadet

Charcadet can only be evolved by using a certain item which is a set of armor, depending on the game version you have.

The eastern side of Paldea’s center region Zapapico, is where you must go in order to evolve Charcadet. This is located west of the challenge area for the Lurking Steel Titan. You need to locate a man who’s wearing a plaid shirt that is looking to trade here for a specific item.

For Auspicious Armor in Scarlet, you must exchange 10 Bronzor Fragments, while for Malicious Armor in Violet, you must exchange 10 Sinistea Chips.

Early on in the game, both of these Pokemon can be located albeit in relatively few places. Find a group of them and use the auto-battle feature to quickly take them out. These crafting materials, which are typically used to create TMs, drop whenever you beat one in battle in the wild.

Go and exchange with the man for the armor once you have collected 10 of the required goods. The armor functions similarly to other evolutionary equipment; however, after usage, it is consumed. For Charcadet to evolve, no minimum level is necessary.

You can use a few techniques if you want to obtain Charcadet’s other version’s evolution. Whatever game version you have, you can trade with a friend for Charcadet in its evolved form. The armor set can also be given to a random Pokemon by a buddy, who can then exchange it for that Pokemon.

As the NPC will still provide you with the same evolution equipment as your version of the game, you won’t be able to join a co-op session with a friend who is playing the other version.

The book “Charcadet’s Adventures,” which is located on a bookshelf on the top right of the third floor of the Entrance Hall, contains the history of Charcadet and how it developed.

Obtain Auspicious Armor

To obtain the Auspicious Armor, you would need 10 Bronzor fragments. We advise consuming a meal that has the buff “Item Drop Power: Psychic” in order to maximize the number of materials you receive from your interactions with Bronzor.

The good thing about Bronzor is that they can often be found around many of the ruins across Paldea—especially at night. The fastest way to defeat them is by using auto battles, which are far more efficient than regular combat.

Head over to Zapapica

Go to Zapapica and hand your ten Bronzor Fragments to the mysterious guy in there to obtain the Auspicious Armor. You need to have them in your group to be able to evolve Charcadet.

The Auspicious Armor may be found in your Bag on the tab with the candy icon. Use the Auspicious Armor on Charcadet to make it evolve into Armarougue, a dual-type Fire/Psychic Pokémon.

Armor Cannon is a Fire-type special strike that is Armarouge’s signature move. Armarouge can perform stronger moves like this, but it depletes their defense and special defense. In return for that power, you will sacrifice a bit of defense.

Along the edges of Alfornada is where Sinistea is most frequently found. Located in the southwest of the Paldea area, this town is home to the Psychic-type Gym. The leveling of the Sinistea and other Pokemon there are around 30-40. As a result, you won’t want to go there right at the beginning of the game.

Head over to Alfornada

Head to Alfornada once you have amassed a powerful crew and reached a sufficient level. On the southern edge of the town, Sinisteas prowl the fields. The ruins atop the mountain just past the town’s eastern boundary are the greatest location to discover them in large numbers, though.

Earn Sinistea Chips

By winning battles against Sinistea, you can earn Sinistea Chips. You will also receive at least one Sinistea Chip, but you might get as many as two as a trophy for defeating Sinistea. Your greatest strategy is to employ auto battles because you can kill more Sinistea that way than if you try to catch or combat them all.

Obtain the Malicious Armor

To obtain the Malicious Armor, travel to Zapapica and hand over 10 Sinistea Chips to the mysterious woman there. You need to have them in your party in order to evolve Charcadet.

The malicious armor can be found in your bag on the tab with the candy icon, and to have them evolve right away, choose it and then choose Charcadet.

It’s vital to remember that there is no limit on how many times Charcadet can evolve throughout your time playing Pokemon Violet for the reason that the Malicious Armor can be obtained more than once. Every time you offer the woman 10 Sinistea Chips, she will grant you an extra set of armor.

Charcadet will be able to master the Shadow Claw Ghost-Type move after developing. At Level 48, Ceruledge’s signature move, Bitter Blade, can be unlocked. It is a Fire Type Physical Attack with a Base Power of 90 and 100% Accuracy. Additionally, it can restore Ceruledge’s HP by up to half of the damage taken by the target.


And that’s how you evolve Charcadet in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. It simply takes completing the aforementioned steps, and you have a cool Pokemon with a powerful moveset.

Although it might seem challenging, evolving Charcadet is actually pretty easy and well worth your time. You have an entire region to explore, so we wish you the best of luck mighty trainers!
