More specifically, you’ll have to walk alongside your Bramblin. After walking a total of 1,000 steps in Let’s Go mode and leveling your Bramblin one last time, they’ll evolve into Brambleghast. You can take the following steps to walk your Pokemon:

  • Select your Pokemon and place it into your first Party slot
  • Head back to the overworld and press ZR on your JoyCon
  • Slowly walk around with your Pokemon! Don’t move too quickly, or it’ll get scared and run back into its Poke Ball.

If you want to make things easier, you can walk around a town or city. By doing this, you won’t encounter any wild Pokemon. You can even walk in a circle if you’d like!

How to Find a Wild Brambleghast

If you don’t currently have a Bramblin on you or want to avoid walking 1,000 steps, there is another way to get a Brambleghast. You can catch wild Brambleghasts in the following areas:

  • Socaterra Trail, north of Casseroya Lake
  • North Province’s Area One

While you can find Brambleghast in these places, it’s a rare spawn. Even though you may get lucky and find the Pokemon here quickly, you’ll have better luck spending time with your Bramblin.
