Gothorita Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

Evolving Pokemon is a natural process you’ll need to go through during your journey in Paldea. Most of the creatures you’ll find will have at least one way of achieving it, no matter how strange it may be. Some will need to know a certain move while others just require a few more levels before maturing into their next stage.

Gothorita is one of those belonging to the second case, making it relatively easy to train to its maximum potential. And if you’re looking for a complete Dex or just want to get a nice, stylish Pokemon in your party, here’s what you need to know about how to evolve Gothorita in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

All that Gothorita needs is enough battle experience. It evolves to Gothitelle at level 41, making it one of the later bloomers, considering that its previous form only evolved at level 32. Gothorita doesn’t seem to be much of a social butterfly, but it’ll stick with you for that. It will grow even taller as it evolves, and its dress seems to accompany it somehow. That’s Pokemon logic for you.

With the shared experience your whole party gets for completing a battle, it should be no problem to achieve 41 if you’ve been training for a while. Tired of just mindlessly battling everything that walks your way? Just stick to the Let’s Go feature introduced in Gen IX, allowing Gothorita to battle Pokemons by itself. It’s clearly not just a phase.

Throw in some Rare Candies to finish the job if you have some of them to spare. You can have multiple copies of those through Tera Raids or even find them in the wild; there’s no real reason to hoard them. If you really want your Gothitelle, 9 of them will allow you to evolve Gothorita immediately. Screw your Pokemon diet; gothic dresses are more important.

And that’s all you need to know about evolving Gothorita in Scarlet and Violet. It will doubtlessly be a huge help in your journey through Paldea. And if you ever feel like needing that extra push, keep scrolling through our many guides and tips here at Prima Games.
