Pokémon Scarlet & Violet – Fuecoco Final Evolution

It stays a croc forever, and we respect that.

If you're having trouble picking your starter in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet, look no further than this tiny croc with big dreams. Fuecoco loves to sleep on warm rocks and play with other Pokémon in its free time. But Fuecoco won’t be a tiny croc forever, so you may be wondering what its final evolution looks like. Here’s a quick guide to satiate your curiosity.

What does Fuecoco evolve into in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Fuecoco evolves into Skeledirge at level 36. Skeledirge is a Fire/Ghost type Pokémon with a mean look and meaner firepower. It’s very tanky with a moderately high Sp. Attack stat, making it a top-tier starter, even when compared to other generations.

Best moves for Skeledirge in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

  • Torch Song or Flamethrower
  • Shadow Ball
  • Earth Power (TM)
  • Roar, Hex, or Hyper Voice (TM)

Due to its unique type, Skeledirge is either weak, strong, or immune when pitted against a certain type. The only exceptions are Electric, Flying, Psychic, and Dragon, which it's neutral to.

Because of this, Skeledirge's moveset needs a ton of coverage. Shadow Ball, in particular, is one of the best coverage moves in the game. After all, Ghost-type moves only have a few weaknesses. Plus, its Shadow Ball gains a same-type attack bonus (STAB) because Skeledirge is a Ghost-type.

The best Natures Skeledirge can get are Modest or Sassy, depending on the type of build you want to give it. It can double as a defensive mon or an attacker. The choice is yours!
