Pokemon Sword and Shield for the Nintendo Switch introduce an entirely new region with dozens of new monsters to catch, train, and evolve. Some of the evolutionary methods might be a little different from past titles so we’re here to walk you through how to evolve Swirlix in Pokemon Sword and Shield.
How to Evolve Swirlix in Pokemon Sword and Shield
Where to Find Swirlix
If you don’t already have a Swirlix to evolve, you can find it in Pokemon Sword in these locations listed below. Keep in mind that Swirlix cannot be found anywhere in Pokemon Shield so you will need to do some trading if you want it in that version:
- Route 5
- Giant’s Mirror
- Glimwood Tangle
- Stony Wilderness
- (Max Raid Battles)
It’s worth noting that Swirlix is a Fairy-type Pokemon so be careful when using Poison/Steel-type moves to attack it. Those are its weaknesses so make sure not to kill it before you can try to capture it (unless it’s a raid battle).
And now, you’ll need to get an item called Whipped Dream if you plan on evolving it to Slurpuff.
How to Get Whipped Dream to Evolve Swirlix Into Slurpuff
To get the hold item named Whipped Dream, you need to go to the city of Hammerlocke, which you can go to once you get the first three badges in the game –it’s accessed through the Wild Area.
Find the Battle Cafe in Hammerlocke and speak to the cashier named Bernard. He’ll offer you a special item if you can manage to defeat him in a battle and these battles can be done daily.
Once you defeat him, you’ll get the Whipped Dream as a reward. If for some reason, you don’t get it on the first try, just go back to him on a different day and fight him again.
Now, to evolve Swirlix, you just need to equip the Whipped Dream to it as a held item and then trade it to a friend. The Pokemon will evolve into Slurpuff and then your friend can just trade it back to you… if they’re trustful.
And that’s all you need to know about how to evolve Swirlix in Pokemon Sword and Shield. For more tips and tricks, we’ve listed some for you down below that might be helpful.
