How to Evolve Charcadet in Pokemon GO

As Charcadet has two different evolutions, it is no surprise that Niantic included differing requirements to evolve it into either Armarouge or Ceruledge. Fortunately, both evolution requirements are straightforward.

  • To evolve Charcadet into Armarouge – Make Charcadet your Buddy Pokemon and defeat 30 Psychic Pokemon.
  • To evolve Charcadet into Ceruledge – Make Charcadet your Buddy Pokemon and defeat 30 Ghost Pokemon.

Note: You do not need to use Charcadet to battle the Pokemon. It only needs to be your Buddy Pokemon.
