Just as in previous Pokemon games, Trainers will need to evolve their Pokemon in order to complete the Pokedex and learn new abilities. Not all creatures evolve in the same way, however, and so here’s a tutorial on how to get Unova Yamask & evolve it to Cofagrigus in Sword & Shield if you’re unsure.
How to Get a Unova Yamask
It’s important to note that you can only catch the new Galarian Yamask, which both looks different and evolves into a completely different Pokemon called Runerigus.
To get a Unova Yumask, you’ll first need to catch the Galarian Yamask from the Route 6 area and then head to Baloonle Stadium. Speak to the young trainer wearing an Eevee costume over in the left corner and you’ll be able to trade Galarian for Unovan.
Yamask has a single evolution called Cofagrigus, which is also a Ghost type.
How to Evolve Yamask into Cofagrigus in Sword & Shield
The Unova Yamask will evolve into Cofagrigus naturally once it has reached level 34. Once it has reached that level it will attempt to evolve and you will be given a choice as to whether or not you want to action that change.
Of course, all Pokemon level-up after being used in battle, but you can always use experience candy to level them more quickly. Candy comes in different sizes that each give a different XP boost, which is as follows:
- XL – 30000
- L – 10000
- M – 3000
- S – 800
- XS – 100
