In Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, you can catch the Wattrel pretty early in the game. It can spawn in the given locations at any time of the day. The odds of catching Wattrel are pretty high as it is not a rare pokemon.

To catch Wattrel, you must travel to The Great Crater of Paldea region where he loves to hang out. These regions with the highest probability of Wattrel are Ocean and Beach biome.

Unlike most of the other Pokemon, you have plenty of areas where you can go to catch a Wattrel. Pick one from the list given below.

  • Asado Desert (near water)
  • West Paldean Sea (coastline)
  • South Paldean Sea (coastline)
