Pokémon Scarlet And Violet: How To Catch And Evolve Capsakid

"Pokémon Scarlet" and "Violet ” have finally been released, introducing fans to the new Paldea region and lots of brand new Pokémon. Among the new additions to the Pokédex are some truly rare monsters, some of which combine multiple elemental forces into one powerful package. Fans are already hard at work catching 'em all, discovering Pokémon such as Tinkatink, a seldom seen (but very effective) Fairy and Steel type. 


Further, the latest mainline "Pokémon" games also deliver a Pokémon type never before encountered in the series. The Pokémon in question, which joins the ranks of those with unique type combinations, is the evolution of Capsakid. While Capsakid itself is simply a Grass type, it evolves into Scovillain, a brand new Grass and Fire type combo. For trainers who like to collect unique Pokémon or those that see battle potential of this dual type, catching and evolving a Capsakid will be a high priority. Here's how to do it.

Evolve Capsakid with a Fire Stone or catch one in the wild

To evolve a Capsakid, it will naturally be necessary to find one first. The Podédex indicates they can often be found in desert areas, so a good place to start would be the region northwest of the town of Cortondo. Once the elusive Grass Pokémon has been found, players will need to find a Fire Stone. Evolution Stones of various kinds can be found across the game, so observant and diligent players should come across a Fire Stone or be able to purchase one in their travels before too long. Simply using the stone on Capaskid will evolve it into Scovillain (an excellent name for this fire type, presumably meant to reference the Scoville Scale of spiciness). According to the Pokédex, these Pokémon secrete spicy chemicals from their body, meaning they definitely live up to their name.


For those who have trouble finding a Fire Stone or have their heart set on using their Stone to evolve a different Pokémon, Scovillains can be found in the wild, but they're very rare. However, the Pokédex won't be complete unless you capture both Capsakid and Scovillain.

Whichever method they choose to obtain one, the unique Grass and Fire evolution of Capsakid is a gem in any trainer's collection.
