What does the Razor Fang do?

In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, some Pokémon will require an item in order to evolve. One of these items is the Razor Fang. The Razor Fang is an evolution item found in the game that is responsible for the evolution of a specific Pokémon. To use it, players will need to have a Pokémon hold it and then have that Pokémon evolve in the in-game menu. Once players use the Razor Fang to evolve a Pokémon, it will be used up and will no longer be in the player's inventory.

Which Pokémon evolve using the Razor Fang?

The Razor Fang is an evolution item required to evolve Gligar into Gliscor. In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Pokémon won't evolve on their own as they have in previous entries. Players will have to tell them to evolve when certain criteria are met, like holding an evolution item. To use this item, players should have Gligar hold the item and then visit the in-game menu in order to evolve it into Gliscor.

Where to find the Razor Fang?

The Razor Fang can be found in many places in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. The Razor Fang can be found on Gligar in the wild. These Pokémon will be holding the item when caught. Once found, players can hold onto the Razor Fang for future use and won't have to evolve the Gligar that was holding the item originally.

Space-Time Distortions can also contain the Razor Fang. Space-Time Distortions will randomly spawn in Pokémon Legends: Arceus' open areas and will contain rare Pokémon and items. Players can sometimes find the Razor Fang within these areas, along with other valuable evolution items.

The Razor Fang can also be purchased in Jubilife Village. The Trading Post will sometimes carry the item for 1,400 MP and Ginter's Specials can also have the item for sale, costing 5,000 Pokédollars. These can be steep prices to pay, but this item is required to evolve Gligar into Gliscor in order to complete the Pokedex unless players manage to catch a wild Gliscor.
