Pokémon Scarlet and Violet's Paldea region is a massive area, teeming with new Pokémon to meet. Many of these can be encountered throughout the island, while others are harder to find. One Pokémon that is somewhat rare and elusive is Tinkatink. This may leave you wondering where to find Tinkatink in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
Where to find Tinkatink in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet
Tinktatink is a shy Pokémon; therefore, it is somewhat hard to find. This rare Pokémon appears sporadically throughout Paldea, but you will mostly want to look in the East Province, West Province, and South Province. We found ours in South Province Area 2 near the mountains. When you encounter a Tinkatink, use a higher level Poke Ball and status conditions to increase your odds of capturing it. If you are having trouble finding one, you could always trade for a Tinkatink with a friend.
How to evolve Tinkatink and Tinkatuff in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet
Tinkatink will evolve into Tinkatuff at level 24 in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. After that, you will need to raise your Tinkatuff to level 38 for it to evolve into Tinkaton. As a three-stage evolution Pokémon, it will become stronger each time it evolves. With a final evolution at level 38, it may fall off in the low and mid-30s, but it will pick back up once it reaches its final evolution.
Tinkaton is a powerful Fairy and Steel-type Pokémon, featuring great Speed and Special Defense with slightly above average values in its other stats. You will definitely want a nature that increases Attack to take advantage of its incredibly strong signature move, Gigaton Hammer. This Steel-type move has a fantastic base attack value of 160, letting Tinkaton pack quite a punch.
