Where to Find Bonsly in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

Bonsly is first available to find in South Province (Area One) as soon as you begin making your way to the Academy for the first time. If you missed out on capturing Bonsly through that journey, don’t worry, as it’s also available for capture in South Province (Area Two). Before searching these areas, you’ll want to ensure it isn’t raining, as Bonsly will not appear during such weather.
