With the release of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, fans of the series can now encounter and catch many new Pokemon in the Paldea region. With so many creatures to discover, Trainers want to get their Pokedex filled as quickly as possible.
Evolving Pokemon isn’t always easy. While many follow the traditional way of evolving, others, like Capsakid, take a bit of persuasion to evolve.
Below is everything players need to know to evolve their Capsakid into the newest cactus on the block, Scovillian, in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
Where to find Capsakid in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
Since Capsakid is a small cactus, it can be found where cacti usually appear: in the desert. The exact areas listed for the appearance are listed below:
- Province West (area one)
- Asado desert
To capture a Capsakid, players must weaken it through combat or catch it off guard and quickly throw a Pokeball at it.
Once the Pokemon is captured, trainers can begin evolving into a Scovillain.
Players must purchase a Fire Stone to evolve Capsakid into Scovillain in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
To begin their journey to evolve Capsakid, players will want to make a stop at Delibird Presents stores, which are located in various cities around the world. Here, trainers must purchase a Fire Stone for 3000 Pokedollars or 3000 LP.
A Fire Stone is an item that can be used on certain Pokemon to make them evolve, and it’s just what the player needs to transform Capsakid into Scovillain.
Players can also find a Flint on the ground when exploring various locations around Paldea.
With the Fire Stone in hand, it’s time to evolve Capsakid.

Now that the hard part is over, players can take their Flint and present it to Capsakid. This can be done by navigating to their bag, going to the Items tab and selecting the Fire Stone.
Once selected, find the “Use” option and select Capsakid. This allows the Pokemon to take the rock and begin the evolution process.
After a short animation plays, players now have a Scovillain in their party. This Pokemon is a great addition to any team in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
What is Scovillain in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet?
One of the most interesting facts about Scovillain is that it is the first Pokemon to combine Grass and Fire types. This makes it a phenomenal Pokemon to have in a party in PvE. It can take on multiple types of attacks with the combined Grass and Fire movesets.
With high attack and special attack stats, but low speed and HP, this Pokemon may not see much competitive use. However, it’s still a great critter to add to a roster to get through the game and fill out the Pokedex in the process.
