Salandit and Salazzle are a Poison and Fire-type Pokémon line introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon. They also appear in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet and can be found fairly early in the game. However, you can't just catch any Salandit and hope to get a Salazzle, as it has a unique evolution method. This may leave you wondering how to evolve Salandit into Salazzle.
How to get Salazzle in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet
To evolve Salandit into Salazzle in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, you must make sure that you catch a female Salandit, as male Salandits cannot evolve. With a female Salandit, raise it to level 33, and it will evolve into Salazzle. If you have a male Salandit, you will need to box it and find a female one.
The downside is that Salandit has an 87.5 percent chance of being male and only a 12.5 percent chance of being female, the same as the starter Pokémon odds. This likely means you will need to encounter several Salandits before you find a female one. When you encounter a female, use status conditions to increase your odds of catching it.
Salazzle has fantastic Speed and Special Attack, making it a good special sweeper. It also has a unique typing of Poison and Fire, as well as a special ability, Corrosion, that lets it poison Steel and Poison-type Pokémon. This makes it a great choice for a Poison-type Pokémon on your team.
