Where Can You Get Malicious Armor in Pokemon Violet? Answered

In order to obtain Malicious Armor in Pokemon Violet, you need to make an in-game trade with an NPC. With Malicious Armor in hand, you can use it to evolve Charcadet into Ceruledge, which is exclusive to Pokemon Violet.

  1. Capture and or battle Sinistea for Sinistea Chips.

    Sinistea’s habitats are in East Province (Area 3), just outside Zapapico, and South Province (Area 6), all around Alfornada. They’re infrequent outside Zapapico, but it beats traveling over to South Province (Area 6). You’ll need 10 Sinistea Chips.

  2. Travel to Zapapico.

    Zapapico is located in the East Province (Area 3), hugging the border of the Great Crater of Paldea. Between the two fast travel points is an old lady standing by a fountain. Go ahead and speak with her.Malicious Armor in Zapapico in Pokemon Violet and Scarlet
