Evolving Smoliv in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

One of the most enjoyable and satisfying parts of playing any Pokemon game is watching our little critters evolve. Not only does it help fill your Pokedex, but it’s interesting to see them grow up and take on different, stronger forms. While this process is occasionally tiring, especially if you have to find specific items or walk around with your Pokemon, it’s still a refreshing change of pace. Smoliv, Dolliv and Arboliva are just a few examples, but they’re just as important as the rest. If you’re interested in learning more, continue reading to discover how to evolve Smoliv into Dolliv, and Dolliv into Arboliva, in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

How to Evolve Smoliv into Dolliv and Arboliva in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

If you’re starting with a Smoliv, you can evolve it into Dolliv once the Pokemon reaches level 25. You won’t need any specific items or further steps for this. However, there are a few different ways you can level your Pokemon:

  • Engage in auto-battling, either with your Smoliv or a high-level Pokemon.
  • Fight in regular battles, resulting in more EXP but slower fights.
  • Fight Trainers that you find in the Overworld.
  • Use EXP Candies on your Smoliv for instant experience boosts. (Bag > Other Items > EXP Candies)

Once your Smoliv reaches level 25, your Rotom phone will appear on your screen, followed by a brief animation of the evolution.
