Pokemon Scarlet & Violet sees a bunch of returning Pokemon in Paldea, like the hard-hitting Liligant. Here’s how to catch one for yourself.
Along with the abundance of brand new Pokemon, Scarlet & Violet features a ton of returning Pokemon from previous generations.
Especially for those trainers who didn’t pick Sprigatito, they’ll need a hard-hitting Grass-type Pokemon to fill out their team.
Luckily, players can find a solid replacement in the form of Petilil and Liligant, which can be found fairly early in a player’s journey. Here’s everything players need to know about finding them in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet.
Where to find Petilil in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet
While Petilil isn’t a rare encounter in Paldea, it is only found in a handful of areas in Paldea. Specifically, trainers should look for Petilil in South Province (Area Four) and the coast of West Province (Area One).
When looking for wild Petilil players should search near flowers.
Where to find Liligant in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet
Unlike Petilil, Liligant is a rare encounter in the wild. Players looking for Liligant can find it in South Province (Area Six) and North Province (Area Three).
Similarly, Liligant is also found near flowers just like Petilil.
How to evolve Petilil into Liligant
Petilil is one of five Pokemon in the franchise that evolves through the use of the Sun Stone. Thankfully, players can get an early Sun Stone by completing the Artazon Gym.
As Sunkern is the only other Pokemon in Generation 9 that evolves through the Sun Stone, trainers who found Petilil and don’t want to go through the hassle of searching for a Liligant should certainly consider using it on Petilil.
Additional Sun Stones can be found in the Port Marinada auction and randomly throughout the overworld.
And that’s everything trainers need to know about finding Petilil and Liligant in Generation 9. Those looking to find out more about Pokemon Scarlet & Violet can check out our other guides below:
