A recipient of a new evolution mechanic in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, your Bisharp needs to take down three leader Bisharp – with their packs of Pawniard watching – to evolve into Kingambit, similar to how you take down Team Star’s leaders when you raid their bases. Bisharp is good enough on its own, especially against the Alfornada Gym, that the wait for it to evolve doesn’t feel that long.

Kingambit is super strong, boasting high Attack and Defense with a new ability that increases its attack by 10% for every fainted Pokemon in your party. Sucker Punch is a serious threat to many Pokemon with the attack boost from evolving and can win you battles when it’s the last Pokemon standing.

With its improved Defense, Kingambit is a bit sturdier against Fighting-types than Bisharp, but it’s still a glaring weakness – keep a Psychic-type around just to be safe.

That’s everything we have on how to evolve Bisharp into Kingambit in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
