How To Catch Lechonk In Pokemon Scarlet And Violet

Lechonk is a Pokemon that resembles a pig in SV and is commonly found during the game's early stages. Here is how to find and catch it.

Lechonk is one of the few Pokemon announced during the Pokemon SV launch. This hog-like species is a normal-type Pokemon and lives mostly out in the field. It will evolve into Oinkologne starting at level 18, with some high stat value. Due to this, it can be a good addition to your team.

In this guide, we will show you where to catch Lechnok in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

Lechonk location in Pokemon SV

Since Lechonk is found during the game’s early stages, it is considered one of the easiest Pokemon to catch in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

Once you have completed the Training tutorial at the Academy, you can venture into the fields to find this Pokemon.

Lechonk has multiple spawn areas on the map, and below we have listed all of them.

  • Southern Province
  • Districts One to Fifth
  • Southern Paldea
  • Eastern Province District (One and Two)

However, for a higher chance of finding it, you must head straight to the Poco Path right next to the starting town. You can find it roaming around the fields in Pokemon SV.


The best time to find this Pokemon is at night since, during the nighttime, several Lechnok roam around the area, giving you enough variety to catch in case one gets away.

If you can’t visit the area for some reason, then you can check the Eastern Province District. It is another decent location to find a Lechnok in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. You might even find a few Oinkologne in the area, which are the evolved form of Lechnok.

How to catch a Lechonk

Being a normal type Pokemon, Lechnok will use Aroma Veil or Gluttony and Thick Fat as its main abilities to damage its opponents. To catch it, throw a regular Pokeball at it. If you’re lucky, you can catch it one go. Otherwise, you’ll have to battle and weaken it. Use a fighting Pokemon against it since it is weak to them.
