There is a lot to love about Sinistea. It’s a ghostly teacup pokemon, what’s not to love?

As alluded to above, Sinistea is a hot commodity because it plays a special role in obtaining Ceruledge in Pokemon Violet.

Without further ado, here are the locations Sinistea appears in Scarlet and Violet.
Sinistea Locations in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
Sinistea is a pretty rare find, but there are quite of few areas where it may appear. Some can be pretty difficult to reach early on, but as the story progresses, players should find them more frequently. Here is where to look for Sinistea:
- North Province (Area 1)
- East Province (Areas 1,2,3)
- South province (Areas 1,2,3,4,5,6)
- West Province (area 1,2,3)
- Asado Desert
- Casseroya Lake
- Glaseado Mountain
- The Pokemon League
Sinistea is a ghost type pokemon so it will be strong against ghost and psychic types and weak to ghost and dark types. Normal type pokemon are unaffected by ghost type attacks, but normal attacks also don’t work against ghost types. Keeping these details in mind will make it easier to capture Sinisteas as they are encountered.
Though Ceruledge is an exclusive evolution for Pokemon Violet, Sinistea can be caught in both versions of the game and is not a version exclusive Pokemon. If Pokemon Scarlet players want Sinistea to help complete their Pokedex, it is obtainable without trading.
Once again, Sinistea is crucial for collecting the 10 Sinistea chips needed to trade for Malicious Armor and evolve Charcadet into Ceruledge. That trade takes place in Zapapico located in East Province (Area 3). Check out our guide on how to Fast Travel to get there quickly.
