If you're trying to round out your Pokedex in Pokemon Sword and Shield in advance of the Isle of Armor DLC dropping, then you're definitely not alone. We're trying to dot every I and cross every T when it comes to evolving our team, so check out our guide on the process of Bounsweet evolution in Pokemon Sword and Shield.
Bounsweet Evolution in Pokemon Sword and Shield
If you're wanting to evolve a Bounsweet, then you're first going to want to pick one up for yourself while you're kicking around the overworld. Luckily, this adorable little berry Pokemon isn't one of the critters on our list of version exclusives (relinked here for your convenience), so you don't have to worry about needing Sword or Shield specifically to add it to your team. Bounsweet's Dex entry mentions that when it's under attack, "it secretes a sweet and delicious sweat" which only attracts more foes so, mood.
If you're looking for a Bounsweet, you can find one during Normal Weather conditions in the Rolling Fields, the Watchtower Ruins, and around Lake Axewell. If you're kicking around the Stony Wilderness, though, they're present during all the following weather types but most prevalent when it's Raining:
- Intense Sun
- Heavy Fog
Evolving one is actually pretty easy and only requires one thing: that you get your Bounsweet to Level 18. Once it's hit that threshold, it's going to evolve into a Steenee, which is the second stage of this particular evolutionary line. The final evolution of Bounsweet is Tsareena, and we've actually prepped a whole guide on how to get one, which you can check out if you reckon you're ready. Otherwise, that's basically it on how to handle Bounsweet evolution in Pokemon Sword and Shield.
