Pokemon Scarlet And Violet: Where To Catch Spiritomb

There are a lot of different kinds of Pokémon out there, but Ghost-Type Pokémon have always been somewhat unique. Not only do physical moves simply not work on their spectral bodies, but there has always been an eerie mystery surrounding their origins, leaving many to wonder whether or not they are actually the ghosts of dead Pokémon. That might seem a bit morbid, but it hasn't stopped the Ghost-Type from becoming a fan favorite over the years.

One of the more interesting variants that players can find in "Pokémon Scarlet" and "Violet" is the Gen 4 dual Ghost/Dark-Type Spiritomb. According to many of its Pokédex entries, this gaseous Pokémon is actually an amalgamation of 108 spirits that have been bound together. These spirits were then attached to a small rock called an Odd Keystone by a mysterious spell to prevent them from getting into mischief.

All that mystery only serves to make Spiritomb more alluring, so there are certainly plenty of trainers who want to add it to their Pokédex. Ghosts can be elusive, however, and it seems that some people are having some trouble tracking down this gaseous orb. In older "Pokémon" games, the player would have to go through a process of placing the Odd Keystone somewhere to summon a Spiritomb. Fortunately, this Pokémon can simply be caught in the wild in "Scarlet" and "Violet." Here's where players can find and catch Spiritomb.

They spawn on Glaseado Mountain

In order to catch a Spiritomb, players will first have to reach the Glaseado Mountain region. This is the big mountain that's distinguished from its surroundings on the map in an icy blue color. It's also the location where players will face the Gym leaders Ryme and Grush.

This region is really big, though, and just wandering around on the mountain until players find it could take a long time. According to the YouTube channel ConCon, Spiritomb will only spawn in three specific locations on Glaseado Mountain, so these are where players should look: the first is marked on the map as a scattering of rocks near the southernmost tip of the mountain, the second on the northeastern side of the map near the river that is running out of the mountain and into the sea, and the third is on the westernmost point of the mountain, just east of the Groundblight Shrine. It should spawn in any of these three locations so long as the player goes at night.

Catching the Spiritomb is just as difficult as finding it, though. This is because it knows the move Curse, which makes it capable of rendering itself unconscious when its health is below 50%. This creates a problem similar to Electrode's Self Destruct, where the player has to capture the Pokémon before it knocks itself out. For this reason, it is recommended that players save before attempting to capture it.
