Pokemon Scarlet & Violet includes monsters from across the series, including Generation 7’s Komala. Here’s how trainers can find this perpetually sleeping Pokemon in the Paldea region.

While Pokemon Scarlet & Violet doesn’t include all 1,015 Pokemon, the Paldean Pokedex is fairly sizable with a variety of monsters from all eight past Generations making an appearance.

Even Pokemon from the more recent Generations, like Gen 7’s Alola region, are represented in the Pokedex. Pokemon like Oricorio, Bruxish, and Mudsdale are found around Paldea, roaming the mountains and oceans of the vast region.

Another one of Alola’s creatures that appear in Gen 9 is the Drowsing Pokemon, Komala, who is known for always being asleep. Here’s how trainers can find this cute koala Pokemon in Scarlet & Violet.

Where to find Komala in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

Komala is found all around the Paldea region and can be encountered during the day or night. According to its Pokedex entry, trainers can find Komala in trees around the region, meaning they can bump into trees with either Miraidon or Koraidon to shake them loose.

Komala is found all around the Paldea region and is commonly found sleeping in trees.

Does Komala evolve in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet?

Unfortunately, Komala didn’t receive a new evolution in Generation 9, like  Dunsparce and Girafarig did. This means Komala’s won’t receive any large stat boosts while it levels up.

As Komala is always asleep, it will not try to run away when approached in the wild.

Despite not having an evolution, Komala has fairly respectable base stats that make it competent in battle. It sports a healthy 115 base Attack stat and a respectable 95 base Special Defense stat. Sadly, its middling Speed, Defense, and HP stats may mean it will be knocked out quickly by stronger, fully evolved opponents.

Komala’s strongest asset is its unique ability, Comatose, which essentially gives it the Sleep status effect without the penalties. This means trainers can take advantage of niche moves like Sleep Talk and Snore, and is unaffected by moves like Yawn. Komala also can’t be afflicted with Status effects like Burn, Freeze, Paralysis, and Poison.

And that’s everything trainers need to know about finding Komala in Generation 9. Those looking to find out more about Pokemon Scarlet & Violet can check out our other guides below:
