Tinkatink Locations in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

Tinkatink, a new Fairy-Steel type Pokemon in Scarlet and Violet, can be found in very limited locations. However, your best bet to first encounter one is to travel to the South Province (Area Two) — or north of Cortondo City — preferably after defeating the Bug-type gym leader.

You’ll have to venture a fair bit north until you stumble across some ruins, but it’s difficult to miss the bright pink Pokemon wielding a hammer. If you find Tinkatink at this location, expect one around level 10 or so. The screenshot below will show you the whereabouts of my first encounter with one.

While Tinkatink can be found scattered about outside of the South Province, so far it’s a safe bet that you’re only going to find them in the lower half of the Paldea region for the time being.
