Grimer will evolve into Muk when it reaches level 38, which is higher than most Pokemon with only one evolution. If you want Muk in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, you’re going to have to put in the work with Grimer to make that happen.

Luckily, there are ways to speed up the leveling process in Scarlet and Violet. By competing in Tera Raid battles, you can earn experience candy which can be fed to Pokemon to give them bursts of experience and help the leveling process.
