  • Place your Tadbulb into your party.
  • Enter your Bag and head into the Other Items tab.

Where to Find Bellibolt

While the evolution process above is a quick, viable way to evolve your Tadbulb, you can also encounter Bellibolt in the wild. Although rare, you can find Bellibolt around Glaseado Mountain and directly south of Casseroya Lake. If you really want to go on an adventure, you can also explore Tagtree Thicket and South Province Area Six. In short, check around the water like you would if you were searching for Tadbulb.
