pawmi feature pokemon

Pawmi is a brand new Electric-type Pokemon featured in Scarlet & Violet. Here’s everything players need to know about how to find the ‘mon in Paldea and its two evolutions in the games, Pawmo and Pawmot.

One of the first Gen 9 Pokemon to be revealed was Pawmi, a small quadrupedal electric rodent that’s as tiny as it is challenging. And it would later be revealed that Pawmi has a three-stage line of evolutions, including Pawmo and Pawmot.

Pawmi uses electric sacs on its cheeks – similar to Pokemon’s mascot Pikachu – and organs on its paws to discharge electricity. It rubs its hands on its checks to generate electricity and then uses that built-up energy to attack its opponents.

Pawmo’s evolution method in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

Pawmo is one of two Pokemon introduced in Gen 9 that share a new evolution method. To evolve Pawmo into Pawmot, players need to use the Let’s Go mechanic and walk 1,000 steps with Pawmo.

To do this, make sure Pawmo is the first member of your party and press R or ZR to send Pawmo out of its Pokeball. After walking 1,000 steps, you will need to level up your Pawmo once, and it will evolve into Pawmot. This can be done in battle or using Rare Candy or XP Candy.
