Where to find Greavard in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

Greavard can be found later in a trainer’s journey through Paldea the farther they venture north. That’s because Greavard is found around Zapapico, in the Glaseado Mountains, and a small area in West Province (Area Three).

However, players can rarely find Greavard in South Province (Area Six) if they are lucky enough to have a Houndstone spawn followed by a pack of Greavard.
