Tyranitar is a beast in the Pokemon world: its Pokedex entry says that “maps must be redrawn” after it rampages because it destroys mountains. You’re probably excited to add this force of nature to your team, so here’s everything you need to know on how to catch Pupitar and evolve it in into Tyranitar in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
How to Catch Pupitar in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet
The Tyranitar line is Scarlet exclusive, so Pokemon Violet players are forced to trade for one. Pokemon Scarlet players can find Larvitar early on in the game near Los Platos (see the below screenshot) and use it for most of their adventure. The Tyranitar line doesn’t have any evolution gimmicks; you just have to be patient.
How to Evolve Pupitar in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet
Larvitar evolves into Pupitar at level 30, and Pupitar evolves into Tyranitar at level 55. Pupitar has a decent move set, so send it out during Gym and Team Star Battles in favorable situations, so it levels up faster. If you don’t use your EXP candy for anything else, it also speeds up the process. Auto-battling is great for getting experience quickly while you look for TMs and other items in Paldea.
