Pokémon Legends Arceus: How to evolve Gabite to Garchomp

Garchomp is one of the best non-legendary Pokémon to have in your party in almost every game it appears in. However, this game changes the regular Pokemon formula in several ways, so you may be wondering how to evolve Gabite to Garchomp in Pokemon Legends Arceus. Here’s what you need to know.

How to evolve Gabite to Garchomp in Pokémon Legends Arceus

Even with all the changes Legends Arceus brings, some things remain the same, like certain evolution methods. Gible still evolves into Gabite at level 24, and Gabite evolves into Garchomp at level 48. This line of Pokemon doesn’t include any special evolutions, though it may take some time to get Gabite to level 48.

Once Gabite reaches level 48, open the party menu and press X while highlighting the Pokemon. It will look like the example in the image below. This will trigger a manual evolution as Pokémon do not automatically evolve by gaining EXP and levels in this game.

Where to find Garchomp

If you haven’t caught a Gible yet, be sure to check out our guide on where to find one in the Coronet Highlands. And if you prefer to skip the entire evolution process, you can even catch a Garchomp in the same highland location, instead of evolving Gabite.

You’ll need to be careful though because it’s an Alpha Pokémon, which means it’s extremely difficult to take down depending on the level of Pokémon in your party.

Garchomp also has a strong Dragon/Ground typing, making it weak against Ice, Dragon, and Fairy while also being immune to Electric-type moves.

That’s everything you need to know about how to evolve Gabite to Garchomp in Pokemon Legends Arceus. Be sure to check out our wiki guide on the game for more tips, tricks, and other useful information to help you on your journey through the Hisui region.
