Girafarig returns in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, and it even has a new evolution. Here is how to get the giraffe Pokemon of Paldea and evolve it into Farigiraf.

Introduced in Gen 3, Girafarig has amassed quite a cult following. While it isn’t as popular as Charizard, Pikachu, or even the pseudo-Legendaries, its rarity in the early generations of Pokemon gave it a special status in the community.

Now, 20 years later, this giraffe is making another appearance in a mainline Pokemon game. But not just by itself: Girafarig has been given a new evolution by the name of Farigiraf.

This guide will show players where they can find Girafarig in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, as well as how they can evolve it into its brand-new form.
