How to evolve Charcadet into Armarouge in ‘Pokémon Scarlet’

Here's how to get this Scarlet-exclusive Pokémon

Evolving Charcadet in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet can be a little bit difficult. It’s a new Gen 9 monster that actually has exclusive evolutions depending on which game you pick up. In Pokémon Scarlet, Charcadet evolves into Armarouge, a Fire/Psychic Type with a red and yellow colouring. 

The tricky thing about Charcadet’s evolution is that it isn’t as simple as reaching a certain level, which is the requirement for the majority of other Pokémon in the game. Instead, you will need to give Charcadet a specific item, which can only be found in one area of the map. In fact, it’s an NPC that holds it, and they won’t be giving it away for free.

Here’s how to evolve Charcadet into Armarouge using the Auspicious Armor in Pokémon Scarlet. You’ll also find info on where to find Bronzor Fragments. Let’s get started.

Just battle Bronzor and either defeat them or catch them to earn Bronzor Fragments. Once you have 10, you will need to head over to the South, to the town of Zapapico.

Speak to this character and trade the 10 Bronzer Fragments for the Auspicious Armor item. Now you’re ready to evolve Charcadet. Just go into your Bag, and then find the Auspicious Armor in the Other menu. Use it on Charcadet to evolve them into Armarouge.
