Pokemon Scarlet & Violet: Where To Find Jigglypuff's Line (& How To Catch Them)

Cementing its place as a franchise mascot with its recurring bit in the "Pokémon" animated series, Jigglypuff has enjoyed a strong presence in the games with an appearance in every generation, a baby Pokémon added to its evolutionary line in Generation 2, a new secondary typing in Generation 6, as well as a Paradox variant introduced in Generation 9.

While it certainly won't be competing to be amongst the most powerful Fairy-type Pokémon alongside the likes of Flutter Mane — or even its own Paradox counterpart, Scream Tail — Jigglypuff is an adorable and classic Pokémon to add to your team. Alongside its evolution, Wigglytuff, this dual Fairy and Normal type critter has an incredibly versatile pool of moves it can learn, as well as the ability to pass them on to other species of Pokémon in the Fairy egg group. For example, it happens to be the only way a Froslass can learn the move Disable, a very useful defensive move for a more fragile Ice-type to have.

Whether you're picking up Jigglypuff for its versatility or plain old cuteness, you won't have to look far to find one waddling around in the wilds: Here's a breakdown of where to find and catch all three Pokémon of Jigglypuff's evolutionary line in "Pokémon Scarlet and Violet."

Where to find the Jigglypuff evolutionary chain in the wild

If you're thinking about starting from the very bottom of the evolutionary chain, you won't have much trouble; you may even remember the Igglybuff that were roaming around the road towards Los Platos during your run through Area One of the South Province at the start of the game. They can also be found bumbling around alongside their next-evolutionary cousins — Jigglypuff — on the outskirts of Cortondo. If you'd like some higher-level Jigglypuffs, you'll also find some roaming around the fields outside Medali, usually right past the northwestern edge of town. While you shouldn't have any trouble picking one up, there is also a guaranteed daily Jigglypuff spawn in Area Three of the South Province: Southwest of the Pokémon Center, there is a Water-type Tera form Jigglypuff at level 14.

Wigglytuff, on the other hand, is extremely hard to encounter by comparison, even relative to other less ubiquitous Pokémon. Only found in Area One of the North Province, these tougher critters have a spawn area that stretches from the region's Pokémon Center to the western shores of the three-tower lake. You'll probably have to do a few laps before you even see its icon pop up on your map, after which you may have to keep resetting the spawns — either via opening and closing picnics or running in a circle wide enough to despawn and respawn the Pokémon via distance — in order to encounter a Wigglytuff.

How to trigger each evolution step

If you're lucky enough, you may be able to skip the hunt entirely and catch a Wigglytuff from a Tera Raid: Igglybuff, Jigglypuff, and Wigglytuff are all possible Raid Boss candidates for Tera Raids of one-star, two-star, and four-star battles respectively. However, considering the low odds of encountering a Wigglytuff either way, it may be better — and faster — to simply raise one from scratch. This might also help players who haven't gotten every badge yet and cannot command wild Pokémon caught at higher levels, as the evolutions have no level requirements.

Igglybuff evolves into Jigglypuff when leveled up with at least 220 friendship points; if you'd rather not have to run to Cascarrafa to check on the exact numbers, that's on the higher end of three hearts when interacting during a picnic. It shouldn't take very long with a few sandwiches, and you may even trigger an evolution from the experience gained from the sandwiches themselves.

Jigglypuff can then be evolved into Wigglytuff via the use of a Moon Stone. Unfortunately, they aren't purchasable at Delibird Presents like some other Evolution Stones, but there are at least three guaranteed spawns: One on the northern cliff overlooking Porto Marinada, one in the grassy area south of the watch tower in the east of South Province Area Three, and one awarded when you reach 210 Pokédex entries. Simply use one on Jigglypuff, and voila — your very own Wigglytuff is ready to go
