How To Evolve Quaxly In Pokemon Scarlet And Violet

Quaxly has one of the best final evolutions in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Here's how to improve the little duck's stats.

Quaxly is one of the three starters Pokemon in Paldea alongside Sprigatito and Fuecoco. This means this little duck is available from the start of the game as a part of the Generation IX Pokemon.

In this guide, we will be showing you how to evolve Quaxly into Quaquaval in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

How to evolve Quaxly into Quaxwell in Pokemon SV

Being a starter Pokémon, Quaxly already possesses above-average stats in Pokémon SV. This also means that to get this Pokémon, you’ll need to choose it as your starter Pokémon when given the choice. To acquire a Shiny Quaxly, you’ll need to breed one. As you train your Quaxly to reach level 16, it will automatically evolve from its base form into Quaxwell with the need of any Evolution Stones.

How to evolve Quaxwell into Quaquaval in Pokemon SV

As you train your Quaxwell and indulge in extra activities such as participating in Tera Raid Battles, making use of the Let’s Go Feature, and even battle Pokémon Trainers, you will level up your Pokémon into a Quaquaval at level 36, adding a Fighting type to its arsenal without the need of any additional steps of Stones.

Quaquaval is considered one of the best final evolutions of a starter Pokémon in Pokémon SV. Being a Fighter/Water type, Quaquaval is capable of kicking its opponents far into the distance with its sheer strength. This is Quaxly’s final evolution.

Best Nature to use with Quaxly, Quaxwell and Quaquaval

Quaxly and all its evolved forms have some of the highest Attack powers out of any Pokémon in the game. Your main intent when choosing a Nature for your Pokémon is to build on their base attributes. In this case you should select a nature that further increases this Pokémon’s Attack stat.

For this reason, we recommend using either Adamant or Brave. The table below highlights the trade offs you’ll need to make to pick either of these Natures.

In Pokémon SV, Natures come in the form of Mints. Each Nature will have a specific mint that is purchasable from Chancy Supply for $20,000. Once you have a desired Mint simply feed it to your Pokémon to alter its stats.
