This includes both Murkrow and Honchkrow, who return as part of the Paldean Pokedex. Here’s how trainers can find both the Darkness Pokemon and the Big Boss Pokemon around Paldea.

How to evolve Murkrow in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

Just like in Generation 4, Murkrow will evolve into Honchkrow when it is exposed to a Dusk Stone. Unfortunately, the Dusk Stone is one of the rarer evolution stones to get as it cannot be bought at the Delibird Presents shop.

However, there are a few ways to get one. Trainers can sometimes find Dusk Stones available at the Port Marinada auction. Additionally, trainers can find them randomly in Alfornada Cavern, Area Zero, and Dalizapa Passage.
