Veluza location in Pokemon SV

Veluza is a Water/Psychic type Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Being a large marine creature, Veluza is generally found in the large open sea area of the map.

However, despite that, its spawn location is quite rare since there is a 30% chance Veluza can be found swimming in a Lake, while there is a 20% chance of it getting spotted in an Ocean.

The first location where you can encounter this Pokemon is at Casseroya Lake. Head to the eastern part of the Casseroya Lake near a small Island to find Veluza swimming straight at you for a battle.


Another area of the map where Veluza can be found in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is the West Paldean Sea. This place is home to several Water Type Pokemon; you might catch a few out of the bloom when finding Veluza.

When finding this Pokemon, make sure to visit its locations at night since there is a higher possibility that you might come across Veluza randomly swimming in the open.
