As is evident from its looks, Nacli can easily be found in rocky areas and mountains, hopping around as a small piece of rock-salt.

The most ideal place to find it early on in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet would be South Province Area 3. Spawn and look around the rocks, and you should find this Pokemon easily. If it doesn’t spawn, leave and return again.

You can also try out the cliffs of West Province (area 1) near the West Paldean Sea.

How to catch a Nacli

Before starting a fight with Nacli, throw a Pokeball at it to gain an advantage. Being a Rock-type, it is weak to Fighting, Ground, and Steel-type moves. So, you should consider bringing a Pokemon with these move types in combat. Make sure not to deal too much in the fight as it is quite weak. Once its health is low, throw a Pokeball to capture it.

This rock-type Pokemon mainly has two abilities Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. One is Purifying Salt, which protects from the damages taken by Ghost-type moves. The second is Sturdy, which allows it to survive even after taking a single knock-out damage shot.
