This particular character from the new titles is a Dark-type who resembles a fox-like animal. This means players will have the best success battling this creature when using Fighting, Bug, and Fairy-type characters. 

Players will see this character evolve into its second form known as Theivul when it reaches level 18 through your many battles and adventures.

Nickit can be found at the locations of Route 2, Stony Wilderness, Dusty Bowl, and Giant’s Mirror. This particular character will likely be one of the first wild creatures you encounter on your travels in the new games.
