One of the most popular Pokemon in competitive battling is finally back in Sword & Shield thanks to the Isle of Armor update. Volcarona is a massively powerful Bug/Fire dual-type Pokemon. But before that, you need to evolve its first stage. Here’s how to evolve Larvesta in Pokemon Sword & Shield.
How to Evolve Larvesta in Pokemon Sword & Shield
Lowly Larvesta starts small and meek until it evolves into the powerhouse, Volcarona. It takes a long time, but it’s absolutely worth the time and effort of leveling up this tiny bug into a massive, beautiful, and deadly fiery butterfly.
If you thought evolving Magikarp into Gyarados took time, then wait until you get a load of this. Out of all the mons that evolve at a set level, Larvesta evolves later than any other Pokemon in the game. Get your Rare Candies and XL EXP Candies ready.
Larvesta finally turns into Volcarona once it hits level 59. That means you have to suffer through its best damage-dealing attacks being Flame Charge and Bug Bite. That’s why it makes sense to just pump this Pokemon full of candies until it evolves.
Sometimes it can be fun to level certain Pokemon up through battling, but this is not one of them. The fun only arrives once Larvesta evolves into Volcarona.
Time needed: 5 minutes.
Here’s a quick summary on how to evolve Larvesta in Pokemon Sword & Shield:
- Level up Larvesta to level 59
This can be done slowly by battling or within just a few minutes if you use EXP Candies.
