Dreepy is another rare Pokemon that you can encounter in the wild in Pokemon SV. This dragon/ghost-type Pokemon is exclusive to the Violet version. The only way Scarlet players can get it in their game is to trade with a Violet user. Otherwise, you will need to switch to Pokemon Violet.
The following guide will tell you where Dreepy is located and how you can catch it.

On top of that, it can also be obtained in a 3-star Tera Raid. This Pokémon has a catch rate of 45 (11.9% on full HP with a Pokéball).
How to catch a Dreepy
There is little chance that you can catch Dreepy on the first try in Pokemon SV. Throw a Pokeball at it to see if you can. In most cases, this won’t work and you’ll have to weaken it to catch it. Take out Pokemon which belong to the following types and use them against it:
Dreepy is weak against these Pokemon so you will have little problem bringing it down. Do not knock it out; instead, bring its HP down close to that point and then attempt to catch it. You should be able to do so easily now.
Dreepy is the base form of this type of Pokémon. At level 50, it evolves into Drakloak. At level 60, it evolves into Dragapult. All three of these variations are Dragon + Ghost-type Pokémon.
Dreepy base stats
Dreepy has three special abilities that help you win battles against your opponents:
- Clear body: Prevents other Pokémon’s moves or abilities from lowering the stats of the Pokémon having this ability.
- Infiltrator: This Pokémon ignores the enemy’s protective moves and their stat boosts gained from moves.
- Cursed body: If the Pokémon having this ability is hit by a move, there is a 30% chance that the move will be disabled unless one of the attacker’s moves is already disabled. This ability doesn’t work if Aroma Veil protects the opponent.
