How To Catch Spiritomb in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

Capturing Spiritomb in Scarlet and Violet is a bit tricky compared to other Pokemon because of its deadly Memento attack. This self-inflicting move can cause it to faint while simultaneously lowering your team’s Attack and Sp. ATK stats. But, if you saved before this battle, you can pick up from where you last started and try again.

The best approach to catching a Spiritomb is to throw a Poke Ball, like Ultra and Master, at the beginning of the match. With this Poke Ball method, you can stop the Pokemon from fainting, resulting in a more accessible experience.

Once players capture the Spiritomb, they can learn about the creature’s abilities and moves. For instance, the Pressure ability causes other Pokemon to expend more PP to use their attacks. Spiritomb can also equip various moves, such as Curse, Shadow Ball, and Sucker Punch.
