If you’re playing through Pokemon Scarlet and Violet and need a strong Dark-type in your party, Maschiff and Mabosstiff are both great options. With plenty of Dark and Normal-type moves in their arsenal, they’re powerful against Psychic and Ghost-types. If you’re interested in learning more, continue reading to discover how to evolve Maschiff into Mabosstiff in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
How to Evolve Maschiff into Mabosstiff in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
To evolve Maschiff into Mabosstiff, you’ll have to raise its level to 30. Even though you don’t need any specific items or additional steps to start the evolution, you may have to battle for a while if your Maschiff is low-level. Thankfully, there are multiple ways to raise your Pokemon’s level:
- Auto-battle using your Maschiff. You can swap to a stronger party member if you want to fight high-level Pokemon.
- Fight against Pokemon in regular battles. While these take longer, you’ll get more EXP.
- Battle any Trainers you find in the Overworld.
- Use EXP Candies for quick and instant experience boosts. (Bag > Other Items > EXP Candies)
Once your Maschiff hits level 30, your Rotom Phone will appear on the screen and initiate the evolution, turning your Pokemon into Mabosstiff!
Where to Find Mabosstiff in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
If you don’t want to level your Maschiff, you have another option for finding Mabosstiff. You can catch Mabosstiff in the wild by travelling to West Province’s Area Three or Socarrat Trail just north of Casseroya Lake. However, it’s a rare spawn, so don’t expect to find one immediately.
