Spritzee is just one of many familiar faces available to catch in the Galar Region. If you’re struggling to find one, though, don’t worry as we know exactly where to look.

The eighth generation of Pokemon have arrived, with many trainers having already discovered the vast majority of species that the new region has to offer. In order to complete the complete the entire Pokedex in these new games, though, fans are going to have to scour the world for old species as well.

First added in Gen 6, Spritzee has managed to find itself in one of the new titles – exclusively available to find in the wild in just Pokemon Shield.

For those looking to pick one up in Pokemon Sword, it’s worth noting that running around in tall grass anywhere in your game would be a colossal waste of time as the only way you’re going to be able to get one is by transferring it from Pokemon Shield.

Where to find Spritzee in Pokemon Shield

If you’re playing Pokemon Shield, though, you’re in luck. It’s not really too difficult to find or catch, to be honest.

The Fairy-type Pokemon spawns in a number of different locations across the map, unlike some of the rarer additions that can be found lurking solely in the Wild Area. It can be found Route 5, Giant’s Mirror, Glimwood Tangle, Stony Wilderness, and even in Max Raid Battles.

Now, you’re probably thinking ‘quite the selection, but where is best to look?’ Well, it all depends on the weather really. In Route 5, you have a 30% chance of finding it in the overworld, but 14% in the long grass.

There seems to be a much higher chance of finding it at Giant’s Mirror, but only in foggy conditions, where the spawn rate increases to 40%. At Glimwood Tangle there’s a 10% chance of seeing one and 30% in Stony Wilderness, when it’s overcast.

How to evolve Spritzee

This isn’t really a secret trick, as most people who have played any of the video games Spritzee has featured in will know how to evolve it. Yet, it doesn’t follow the same pattern as most other species, with many simply evolving at a particular level, so it’s worth noting just in case you’re looking to get your hands on its evolved form – Aromatisse.

In order for it to evolve, you’re going to have to trade it with another trainer and have it holding a very specific item, a sachet. So, where do you find one of those?

Head over to the Hammerlocke location on the map and visit the Pokemon Center. Once you get inside, you will notice that it has a small store inside where you can pick up the item you’re looking for at a price of 10BP.

Once that’s out of the way, simply have your Spritzee hold the item while making a trade and soon enough you – and your fellow trainer – will have checked off yet another Pokemon in the Galar Region Pokedex.

A Pokemon Sword & Shield cosplayer made waves on TikTok after sharing her mind-blowing transformation in Gen 8’s Water-type Gym Leader, Nessa.

The Pokemon franchise entered its eighth generation with the release of Sword & Shield on the Nintendo Switch. The 2019 RPG introduced players to a whole new cast of characters and was the debut of the Galar region.

A talented cosplayer celebrated the game by bringing popular character Nessa to life with an insanely accurate portrayal. The artist’s stunning video transformation into the Gym Leader will leave fans of the Water-type Trainer in awe.

At the start of the Gen 8 title, the protagonist receives an invitation to the Pokemon League by reigning Champion Leon. On the player’s quest to become the very best, they face off against a host of new Gym Leaders – including Nessa of Hulbury.

Cosplayer ‘nerdtasticmel’ made a splash on Instagram after sharing her incredible true-to-life take on the Trainer. The artist faithfully recreated the heroine’s signature two-piece white and blue Galar league uniform.

Mel’s re-creation of the attire is full of little details, such as the water drop logo on her crop top and the number 049 on her swim shorts. She also faithfully included the character’s belly button chain accessory which wraps around her stomach.

Despite only releasing at the end of 2019, the eighth gen RPG is already the third-highest selling game in the entire franchise. Proof that Pokemon’s addicting “Gotta Catch ‘Em All” design is more popular than it’s ever been.

In October, the title got its second major DLC expansion, The Crown Tundra. While it’s unclear if the add-on will be the last content the Switch release gets, the update closed out the Galar region with an epic finale.
