While it might not be a brand-new Pokemon, Boldore has made its way to the Galar region in Pokemon Sword and Shield. As a result, some players are likely wondering how to evolve Boldore in Pokemon Sword and Shield so that they can add Gigalith to their Pokedex.
Evolving Boldore in Pokemon Sword & Shield
Let’s cut right to the chase here, after evolving your Roggenrola at level 25 into a Boldore all you need to do is trade Boldore to evolve it into Gigalith. You don’t have to wait for a particular level for the evolution to occur during the trade, nor do you need Boldore to have a particular item equipped to cause the evolution to occur.
Simply find a friend, trade Boldore with them and get them to send the newly-evolved Gigalith back to you. This is the best method we’ve found to get yourself a Gigalith in Pokemon Sword and Shield, unless, of course, you don’t mind having someone else’s Boldore evolve into a Gigalith. That way, you and your friend won’t have to trade back.
If you’re going to trade with a friend who’s in the same room as you, simply choose the Link Trade option and set your Link Code. This prevents other random nearby players for accepting your trade request instead of your friend.
Alternatively, you can just choose the Start Trading option, and your request will be sent to any trainers who happen to be in your nearby vicinity. You can also go online to trade by pressing the + button from the Y-Comm menu. Then select Link Trade, though keep in mind you do need a Nintendo Switch Online subscription to trade and battle with friends online.
