You can capture a Pichu by heading to Route 1 and Hau’oli City. For both of these locations, Pichu has a 5% encounter rate and 190 catch rate. It shouldn’t be hard to catch it once you’re in battle, but it may take a bit before you encounter it.

Unlike other Pokemon, Pichu will only evolve once its Happiness is maxed out. Once you’ve accomplished this by winning battles and giving it vitamins and berries, it will evolve into Pikachu when it levels up. Giving Pichu a Soothe Bell will also help grow its Happiness. Just make sure to keep it in your party and battle! And make sure to avoid fainting during battles! Once Happiness has been improved, Pichu will evolve the next time it levels up.

Now you’ve got that Pikachu that you’ve always wanted, but what about evolving it to its final form, Raichu? In order to get that done, you’ll need to use a Thunder Stone on Pikachu to get it to immediately evolve into Raichu.

You can find a Thunder Stone on Route 8 when you enter the small RV park. Run behind the RV to find the Thunder Stone you need!

In Alola, Pikachu will always, and only, evolve into the Alola Form Raichu. Though Alolan Raichu will automatically learn some Psychic-type moves when it evolves, it won’t learn any other moves after that. Make sure your Pikachu has learned an adequate amount of moves before evolving it. Pikachu stops learning moves at Level 58.

Biology

Pikipek is an avian Pokémon with black plumage. Its gray beak is long with a pointed, black tip, and it has large blue eyes. There is a white, mask-like marking on its face. This marking extends down its neck before ending in a tuft of feathers on its chest. A large crest sweeps upward from the back of its head with a red stripe along the top that ends at its beak. The undersides of Pikipek’s wings are white, and it has thin gray legs and feet. It has a flat tail.

Despite its slender appearance, Pikipek has powerful neck muscles and is able to strike 16 times per second with its beak. This allows it to not only drill through wood, but shatter stone as well. The holes it drills in trees are used for nesting, storing food, and collecting small, glittering objects. The noise of this Pokémon pecking can be used to communicate with others. This Pokémon feeds on Berries and is able to attack opponents by zipping the leftover seeds at them. These shots have enough force to embed the seeds in trees. [1] Talonflame is a natural predator of Pikipek. Pikipek preys on Metapod.

Evolving Popplio into Brionne and finally Primarina
Water-type starter Popplio evolves into its second version in Brionne at level 17, and like the other starters reaches its final form, Primarina, at level 34.

Evolving Rockruff into Lycanroc Midday or Midnight Form
New rock puppy Rockruff can evolve one of two ways depending on which version of the game you have. In Sun itll evolve at level 25 and in the daytime into the Midday form of Lycanroc. In Moon itll also evolve at level 25, but at night and into the Midnight form of Lycanroc. The two are version-exclusive.

Evolving Yungoos into Gumshoos
The angry-looking newcomer that is Yungoos levels up quite simply and quite early on just get to level 20 and itll evolve into Gumshoos. Mr. President, is that you?

Evolving Pikipek into Trumbeeak and finally Toucannon
Pikipek looks like a pretty standard-issue early-game flying-type Pokemon, but it actually gets pretty badass by the end. At level 14 it evolves into Trumbreak, and at level 28 it evolves into the awesome Toucan-like Toucannon.

Evolving Grubbin into Charjabug and then Vikavolt
Grubbin also looks like another fairly standard-issue Pokemon the familiar early-game, 3-stage bug-type. It evolves into Charjabug at Level 20, but wont evolve into its final form, Vikavolt, unless you level up in the Vast Poni Canyon area of Alola. Level up there and Vikavolt is yours.

Evolving Cutiefly into Ribombee
Tiny little new bug and fairy-type Pokemon Cutiefly evolves into Ribombee at Level 25. Simple!

Evolving Salandit into Salazzle
New fire and poison-type lizard Salandit is an interesting case for Pokemon only the female version of Salandit evolves. The female Salandit will evolve into Salazzle at Level 33, but the male version will remain as Salandit forever.

Evolving Stufful into Bewear
Cutesy baby-bear Stufful will evolve into the equally cute but much more dangerous Bewear at level 27 just dont get trapped in one of its hugs. It could be deadly.

Evolving into Golisopod
Wimpod does just look sort of lame. Its a water and bug-type hybrid and are known well for their cowardly nature. You might want to hang onto one, though at level 30 it evolves into the utterly bad-ass Golisopod.

Evolving Bounsweet into Steenee and finally Tsareena
Bounsweet will evolve into Steenee at any point after level 18. To evolve into Tsareena you need to justify those dangerous-looking, sharp legs that Pokemon has itll only evolve if your Steenee knows the move stomp. Steenee will naturally learn Stomp at level 29.

Evolving Mudbray into Mudsdale
[/b]New fiery donkey-looking Pokemon Mudbray will evolve into the much more regal-looking Mudsdale at level 30.

Evolving Fomantis into Lurantis
New grass-type Fomantis will evolve into the typically unsettlingly humanoid-looking Lurantis by leveling up in the daytime to level 34 or higher.

Evolving Sandygast into Palossand
Sandcastle-looking ghost-type Pokemon Sandygast is a late bloomer, but will level up into the even creepier and more impressive-looking Palossand at level 42.

Evolving Morelull into Shiinotic
Grass and fairy-type Morelull resembles mushrooms, which means the evolution for it is pretty obvious it grows. It evolves into Shiinotic at level 24 and up.

Evolving Crabrwaler into Crabominable
Fighting-type Crabrawler is pretty much always found guarding berries. Its greedy like that. If you want to evolve it into the particularly deadly-looking and excellently-named Crabominable youll want to level it up while in Alolas Mount Lanakila area.

Evolving Type: Null into Silvally
Type: Null is pretty unique, and this a Pokemon youll only have the chance to access much later in the game. Once you do, youll want to make it happy by battling with it, hanging out with it, feeding it and spoiling it by petting it and so on. Once it has sufficient happiness, itll evolve upon level up.

Evolving Jangmo-o into Hakamo-o and finally Kommo-o
Despite seeming like exactly the type of Pokemon thatd have some sort of complex and convoluted evolution method, Jangmo-o evolves into Hakamo-o at level 34. Its that simple. It stays simple, too: Hakamo-o will finally evolve into Komo-o at level 45.

Evolving Alolan Ratatta into Alolan Raticate
Alolan Ratatta evolves into Alolan Raticate at Level 20. All you have to do is keep fighting and battling with this Ratatta and itll eventually level up as normal.

Evolving Pichu into Pikachu then into Alolan Raichu
The iconic Pikachu line of Pokemon get an all-new Alolan form in Sun & Moon but only for its final evolution phase. Pichu is the most easy to catch. Pichu is evolved into Pikachu by having its Happiness at maximum. Max this out by feeding Pichu and caring for it. Once you have a Pikachu, present it with a Thunder Stone to get your very own levitating, half-Psychic type Alolan Raichu.

Evolving Alolan Sandshrew into Alolan Sandslash
Alolan Sandshrew and Sandslash come with an all-new Ice-type classification and are exclusive to Pokemon Moon. To evolve into Sandslash, simply present Alolan Sandshrew with an Ice Stone.

Evolving Alolan Vulpix into Alolan Ninetales
Alolan Vulpix and Ninetales come with an all-new Ice-type classification and are exclusive to Pokemon Sun. To evolve into the majestic Ninetales simply present Alolan Vulpix with an Ice Stone.

Evolving Alolan Meowth into Alolan Persian
Alolan Meowth can be evolved into Alolan Persian simply by keeping it happy. Max out its happiness by feeding it, winning in battles and spoiling it by petting and grooming it, and when happiness is at a max level Meowth up itll then evolve.

Evolving Alolan Geodude into Alolan Graveler and finally Alolan Golem
This one is thankfully pretty simple Alolan Geodude will evolve into a Graveler that also has some incredible hair at Level 25. If you want to get the truly impressive mustachioed Alolan Golem youll have to trade a Graveler, at which point it will evolve.

Evolving Alolan Grimer into Alolan Muk
The bright green I look like Ive been gorging on Custard Alolan Grimer will evolve into the rainbow-coloured Alolan Muk at Level 38.

Evolving Exeggcute into Alolan Exeggutor
The massive-necked Alolan Exeggutor has become something of a meme even before Pokemon Sun & Moon released, and, well for good reason. Look at it! Use a Leaf Stone on a regular old Exeggcute to evolve it into this Alolan version.

Evolving Alolan Diglett into Alolan Dugtrio
The Alolan Diglett and Alolan Dugtrio do rather look like theyre having a bit of a crisis and have picked up some wigs, but they have a surprisingly serious backstory. An Alolan Diglett is easily found in a number of locations and will evolve into Dugtrio at Level 26.

Evolving Cubone into Alolan Marowak
A regular old Cubone can be evolved into the Alolan variant of Marowak at level 28 onwards you just need to make sure you level up at night in-game. Thatll be at night in real world time for Sun owners and any time in the daytime for Moon owners the two games have their in-game clocks offset by 12 hours, so Moon will always be 12 hours ahead.

How to evolve pikipek in pokemon sun and moon

The first thing you want to do with any new Pokémon game is catch and see as any new creatures as you can, and generation seven is one of the most interesting to date.

Pokémon Sun and Moon’s evolutions give a new spin on classic first generation creatures with Alolan Forms such as Marawak, Exeggutor and Richu, while many new creatures require certain steps in order to see their evolutions, from the time of day to levelling in specific locations.

Here’s a list of every new Pokémon that can be evolved in Pokémon Sun and Moon, and how to get them.

Pokémon Sun and Moon Alolan Forms and how to evolve them

As well as new creatures, there are many new Forms of first generation Pokémon out there to evolve. Most require you to catch the Alolan pre-evolution in the wild, so keep an eye out and follow the below steps.

Home » Guides » How to Evolve Charjabug in Pokemon Sun and Moon

Pokemon Sun and Moon introduces a ton of new Pokemon into the family of monsters, and one such trio are Grubbin, Charjabug, and Vikavolt. These are bug and electric mash-up types that will give you an edge up against many types. And even better, you can get Grubbin pretty early in the game.

Charjabug turns into what is arguably the coolest looking insect Pokemon to date, Vikavolt. You’re likely wondering, though, “How do I evolve this little cube?” Well, it’s a bit of a trek, unfortunately. In order to get the final form, you will need to level Charjabug up to level 40. Once you do, congratulations, you will trigger that lovely evolution cutscene.

Keep in mind that you will receive a Vikavolt which will bring along its “Levitate” ability. This means that ground moves won’t be able to touch it, it won’t be trapped, and it takes no damage from spikes. Here are some of the common moves that many players have already reported that it can have:

  • Thunderbolt
  • Air Slash
  • Charge
  • Vice Grip
  • String Shot
  • Mud-Slap
  • Bite
  • Bug Bite
  • Spark
  • Acrobatics
  • Guillotine
  • Bug Buzz
  • Dig
  • Zap Cannon
  • Agility

Enjoy your new, super cool looking bug! And for more help with Sun and Moon, be sure to check out Twinfinite’s wiki for guides and tips!

Season of Alola is here, and with it, Pikipek.

How to evolve pikipek in pokemon sun and moon

Pikipek is coming to Pokemon GO with the new Season of Alola. Originally introduced in the Pokemon Sun and Moon games, many Alola region Pokemon will be making their debut with the new season that starts tomorrow with the Welcome to Alola event. With so much great new content heading towards Pokemon GO, here is everything you need to know about Pikipek in Pokemon GO.

How to Catch Pikipek in Pokemon GO

As mentioned previously, there are a ton of new Alola region Pokemon making their debut in Pokemon GO with Season of Alola. Pikipek, along with other Alola friends such as Rowlet, Litten, and more, will be available in Pokemon GO starting March 1, at 10:00 a.m. local time. Season of Alola will last for three whole months and officially end on Wednesday, June 1, at 10:00 a.m. local time.

During the Welcome to Alola event, Pikipek will have an increased catch rate. That means that from Tuesday, March 1, at 10:00 a.m. local time and until Wednesday, March 9, at 8:00 p.m. local time is your best window of opportunity to catch a Pikipek. Pikipek can also be caught through a 2km Egg. While Alola Pokemon like Pikipek can be caught in the wild all season long, Welcome to Alola is the best time to catch them.

Pikipek has a three-step evolution. Starting with Pikipek after being fed Candy, it will evolve into a Trumbeak which can then be evolved into a Toucannon. These are powerful, and colorful, Pokemon that you won’t want to miss.

Can Pikipek Be Shiny?

Unfortunately, at this time Pikipek can’t be shiny in Pokemon GO. The only two shiny Alola Pokemon we get at the launch of Season of Alola are Yungoos and Rockruff. We will be sure to update you when we hear news of more shiny Alola Pokemon debuting in Pokemon Go. For now, Alolan Exeggutor can be shiny and is available to catch in the wild for a limited time.

There are, of course, other shiny Pokemon that you can catch while waiting for more shiny Alola Pokemon to wash up. Cubone, with a Spotlight Hour on the horizon, can be shiny, along with every other Pokemon that will be featured in a Spotlight Hour for March 2022.

Now you know everything you need to in order to catch Pikipek in Pokemon GO. As always, if you want the latest scoop on everything Pokemon GO, head to our Pokemon GO guides page.

Pokemon GO is available now on mobile devices.

Evolving Sandygast into Palossand
Sandcastle-looking ghost-type Pokemon Sandygast is a late bloomer, but will level up into the even creepier and more impressive-looking Palossand at level 42.

Evolving Morelull into Shiinotic
Grass and fairy-type Morelull resembles mushrooms, which means the evolution for it is pretty obvious it grows. It evolves into Shiinotic at level 24 and up.

Evolving Crabrwaler into Crabominable
Fighting-type Crabrawler is pretty much always found guarding berries. Its greedy like that. If you want to evolve it into the particularly deadly-looking and excellently-named Crabominable youll want to level it up while in Alolas Mount Lanakila area.

Evolving Type: Null into Silvally
Type: Null is pretty unique, and this a Pokemon youll only have the chance to access much later in the game. Once you do, youll want to make it happy by battling with it, hanging out with it, feeding it and spoiling it by petting it and so on. Once it has sufficient happiness, itll evolve upon level up.

Evolving Jangmo-o into Hakamo-o and finally Kommo-o
Despite seeming like exactly the type of Pokemon thatd have some sort of complex and convoluted evolution method, Jangmo-o evolves into Hakamo-o at level 34. Its that simple. It stays simple, too: Hakamo-o will finally evolve into Komo-o at level 45.

Evolving Alolan Ratatta into Alolan Raticate
Alolan Ratatta evolves into Alolan Raticate at Level 20. All you have to do is keep fighting and battling with this Ratatta and itll eventually level up as normal.

Evolving Pichu into Pikachu then into Alolan Raichu
The iconic Pikachu line of Pokemon get an all-new Alolan form in Sun & Moon but only for its final evolution phase. Pichu is the most easy to catch. Pichu is evolved into Pikachu by having its Happiness at maximum. Max this out by feeding Pichu and caring for it. Once you have a Pikachu, present it with a Thunder Stone to get your very own levitating, half-Psychic type Alolan Raichu.

Evolving Alolan Sandshrew into Alolan Sandslash
Alolan Sandshrew and Sandslash come with an all-new Ice-type classification and are exclusive to Pokemon Moon. To evolve into Sandslash, simply present Alolan Sandshrew with an Ice Stone.

Evolving Alolan Vulpix into Alolan Ninetales
Alolan Vulpix and Ninetales come with an all-new Ice-type classification and are exclusive to Pokemon Sun. To evolve into the majestic Ninetales simply present Alolan Vulpix with an Ice Stone.

Evolving Alolan Meowth into Alolan Persian
Alolan Meowth can be evolved into Alolan Persian simply by keeping it happy. Max out its happiness by feeding it, winning in battles and spoiling it by petting and grooming it, and when happiness is at a max level Meowth up itll then evolve.

Evolving Alolan Geodude into Alolan Graveler and finally Alolan Golem
This one is thankfully pretty simple Alolan Geodude will evolve into a Graveler that also has some incredible hair at Level 25. If you want to get the truly impressive mustachioed Alolan Golem youll have to trade a Graveler, at which point it will evolve.

Evolving Alolan Grimer into Alolan Muk
The bright green I look like Ive been gorging on Custard Alolan Grimer will evolve into the rainbow-coloured Alolan Muk at Level 38.

Evolving Exeggcute into Alolan Exeggutor
The massive-necked Alolan Exeggutor has become something of a meme even before Pokemon Sun & Moon released, and, well for good reason. Look at it! Use a Leaf Stone on a regular old Exeggcute to evolve it into this Alolan version.

Evolving Alolan Diglett into Alolan Dugtrio
The Alolan Diglett and Alolan Dugtrio do rather look like theyre having a bit of a crisis and have picked up some wigs, but they have a surprisingly serious backstory. An Alolan Diglett is easily found in a number of locations and will evolve into Dugtrio at Level 26.

Evolving Cubone into Alolan Marowak
A regular old Cubone can be evolved into the Alolan variant of Marowak at level 28 onwards you just need to make sure you level up at night in-game. Thatll be at night in real world time for Sun owners and any time in the daytime for Moon owners the two games have their in-game clocks offset by 12 hours, so Moon will always be 12 hours ahead.

How to evolve pikipek in pokemon sun and moon

Yungoos and Pikipek have been revealed for Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon on Nintendo Treehouse: Live at E3 2016, with director Junichi Masuda and producer Shigeru Ohmori chatting about the Nintendo 3DS exclusives.

Yungoos

How to evolve pikipek in pokemon sun and moon

Category: Loitering Pokémon
Type: Normal
Height: 1’04”
Weight: 13.2 lbs.
Ability: Stakeout / Strong Jaw

Yungoos is a big eater that is never satisfied. The majority of its long body is given over to its stomach, and its digestion is swift, so it’s always hungry. It has strong fangs, so it can crush and consume the hardest of objects.

Each Yungoos chooses its own particular route for searching out prey. It stalks along this route searching for food until it’s exhausted, at which point it drops and sleeps wherever it may be. It’s thought that these Pokémon decide their routes based on safety, so that there’s no risk in falling asleep at any time.

Yungoos is not a Pokémon that is native to the Alola region. It was brought to the region to help deal with the explosive population of a certain other Pokémon, and now Yungoos are commonly seen around the Alola region.

Some Yungoos have an Ability that no other Pokémon discovered has previously had. This Ability is known as Stakeout. With the Stakeout Ability, this Pokémon’s moves can deal twice the normal damage to any Pokémon that switch in or enter the field mid-battle.

Since this Pokémon is so common in the Alola region, it’s easy to catch one. But this Pokémon has a terrible temper when it’s hungry—and it demands a whopping amount of food.

Pikipek

How to evolve pikipek in pokemon sun and moon

Category: Woodpecker Pokémon
Type: Normal/Flying
Height: 1’00”
Weight: 2.6 lbs.
Ability: Keen Eye / Skill Link

Pikipek can strike 16 times a second with its beak. These strikes are powerful enough to not only drill through hard wood but even shatter stone. The noises made by their blows can signal others. Some of these signals have been identified as warning signals and greetings among allies. Pikipek Trainers have grown to recognize them as well.

These Pokémon drill holes in trees and store food in the holes. They also like small, glittering objects and will tuck them away in their food stores, too. It’s often said, “Something lost, something missed, check inside the Pikipek nest.”

Pikipek will attack distant opponents by zipping seeds at them. These shots have enough strength to embed the seeds in tree trunks.

Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon will release exclusively for Nintendo 3DS in North America, Australia and New Zealand on November 18th, and in Europe on November 23rd.

The launch of the “[email protected] Sun” and “[email protected] Moon” games saw the introduc of a unique type of [email protected] to fans of the franchise. This new ty is called Alola Form and only concerns a few of the already existing [email protected] in the franchise .To be exact, an Alola Form is a modifi version of an existing [email protected]

Alolan [email protected], just like ordinary [email protected], can be caught in the A region through battles. However, there are specific things Trainers should do and requirements they should meet inorder for them to activate Alolan evolutions of pre-evolved forms.

All in all, there are only 14 Alolan [email protected] in “[email protected] Sun and Mo Eleven of which are evolved forms of either pre-evolved Alolan [email protected] or first-generation monsters. For players of the Nintendo 3DS titles who have yet to have any of the evolved Alolan [email protected], (http://gearnuke.com/pokemon-sun-moon-get-alola-pokemon-evolutions GearNuke released a simple guide on how to obtain all of them. Check it out below.

For Alolan Exeggutor, since there is no Alola Form of pre-evolved form Exeggcute, Trainers can only obtained the Alolan evolved form by using a Leaf Stone. Using the stone on the normal pre-evolved monster will transform it into the long-necked Alola form.

Another Alola From is Alolan Dugtrio. Unlike Alolan Exeggutor, its pre-evolved form has an Alolan version called Alolan Diglett. To evolve the latter, one should make it reach level 26. Only than can Alolan Dugtrio with its fancy golden locks be obtained.

[email protected] Sun and Moon” has Alolan Geodude, so it is not surprisi that there are Alolan Graveler and Alolan Golem in the games. For Alolan Graveler, one should level up Alolan Geodude to level 25. On the other hand, Alolan Golem is a special case. The Trainer should first trade Alolan Graveler to a friend, so it can automatically transform into Alolan Golem. Once the transformation is done, the Trainer can ask his or her friend to trade it back.

Alolan Marowak is similar to Alolan Exeggutor. Since Cubone does not have an Alola Form, the player can obtain Alolan Marowak by leveling up regular Cubone. It does not require a special stone to evolve. The player should simply level it up to level 28 during the night period in the games.

Since Sludge [email protected] Alolan Muk ‘s pre-evolved form also has an Alo Form, the former is easy to obtain. The Trainer should level up Alolan Grimer to level 38, so the Poison/Dark-type creature evolves to its bigger and more colorful brother.

Alolan Ninetales is another [email protected] that requires a special type stone to evolve. Once the player has obtained an Ice Stone, he or she can use it on the Ice-type Alolan Vulpix to turn it into the Ice/Fairy-type Alolan Ninetales.

Then, there’s Alolan Persian, the evolved form of the cunning Scratch Cat [email protected] called Alolan Meowth. Evolving Alolan Meowth is a bit trick Since this version of Meowth is used to living the luxurious life with the royal family, it requires a lot of pampering and special treatment before it can change into Alolan Persian. Taking care of Alolan Meowth by feeding it and playing with it increases its happiness level. When its happiness reaches a high point, it can transform into its Classy Cat evolved form.

Similar to Alolan Persian, Alolan Raichu can only be obtained by treating its pre-evolved form well. Partying, playing and feeding a regular Pikachu will help in increasing its happiness level. When the happiness level is high, the Trainer should use the Thunder Stone to transform Pikachu into Alolan Raichu.

According to the official (http://www.pokemon-sunmoon.com/en-us/pokemon/alolan-rattata/) “[email protected] Sun and Moon”website , there are many gluttonous Dark/Normal-ty Mouse [email protected] in Alola Region’s urban areas. When one catches an Alol Rattata, it’s easy to evolve it into Alolan Raticate. All it takes is leveling up the pre-evolved form to level 20.

Finally, there’s Alolan Sandslash. This [email protected] also requires the I Stone to evolve. First, the player should look for Alolan Sandshrew in the snowy mountains of Alola Region. Due to volcanic eruptions, the regular Sandshrew migrated to the snowy mountains which led to their transformation into the Ice-Steel-type Alolan Sandshrew. When the player already has an Alolan Sandshrew, changing it into Alolan Sandslash is quite easy with the help of&nbsp

After you become Champion, you can find Gladion and get a Type: Null from him.

How to Get Type: Null

Go to Aether Paradise and take the elevator up to 2F. Go to the north middle end to find Gladion. Talk to him to get Type: Null and all the memory drives that Type: Null’s evolution, Silvally, can use.

How to Evolve Type: Null

Type: Null will evolve into Silvally when leveled up with high friendship/happiness. You can increase friendship in the following ways:

  • Give Type: Null a Soothe Bell to hold. It will double the amount of friendship that the pokémon earns when you do the following things.
  • Put Type: Null into your party and walk around. Your pokémon’s friendship will increase every 128 steps you walk. You can ride Tauros to do this more quickly.
  • Type: Null’s friendship will increase every time it levels up.
  • Type: Null’s friendship will increase if you use Vitamins on it (e.g. Carbos, Iron, etc.)
  • Take Type: Null to Konikoni City on Akala Island and talk to the hula dancer to give your pokémon a lomi lomi massage, which increases friendship. The hula dancer can only give one massage per day.
  • Put Type: Null into your PC Box (which will NOT change its friendship), then go to Poké Pelago and put Type: Null into the hot spring in Isle Avue. Your pokemon’s friendship will gradually increase over time while in the hot spring, but be sure not to leave your pokémon there for more than 24 hours or its friendship will start to decrease. You can add Poké Beans to the container next to the hot springs to make your pokémon’s friendship increase even more quickly.
  • If you have a Friendship Café in your Festival Plaza, you can purchase meals for Type: Null to increase its friendship.

You can check Type: Null’s friendship by talking to the female veteran in Konikoni City on Akala Island. If she says “My! It feels incredibly close to you! Nothing makes it happier than being with you!” then Type: Null will evolve into Silvally the next time it levels up. If she says “You clearly love your Pokémon, and you must spend a lot of time together.” there is a chance that Type: Null’s friendship is high enough for it to evolve, but you might want to increase its friendship more, just to be sure.

Pikipek (Japanese: ツツケラ Tsutsukera) is a dual-type Normal/Flying Pokémon introduced in Generation VII.

It evolves into Trumbeak starting at level 14, which evolves into Toucannon starting at level 28.

Pikipek is an avian Pokémon with black plumage. Its gray beak is long with a pointed, black tip, and it has large blue eyes. There is a white, mask-like marking on its face. This marking extends down its neck before ending in a tuft of feathers on its chest. A large crest sweeps upward from the back of its head with a red stripe along the top that ends at its beak. The undersides of Pikipek’s wings are white, and it has thin gray legs and feet. It has a flat tail.

Despite its slender appearance, Pikipek has powerful neck muscles and is able to strike 16 times per second with its beak. This allows it to not only drill through wood, but shatter stone as well. The holes it drills in trees are used for nesting, storing food, and collecting small, glittering objects. The noise of this Pokémon pecking can be used to communicate with others. This Pokémon feeds on Berries and is able to attack opponents by zipping the leftover seeds at them. These shots have enough force to embed the seeds in trees. [1] Talonflame is a natural predator of Pikipek. Pikipek preys on Metapod.

One of the Pokemon series’ most iconic characters is none other than Eevee. Fans of the series can rejoice as Eevee returns to the series in Pokemon Sun and Moon. Alongside Eevee’s return, comes the return of the millions (not actually a million, but a lot) of evolutionary forms Eevee can take. Below is a guide to all the Eevee evolutions in Pokemon Sun and Moon.

Where To Get Eevee

How to evolve pikipek in pokemon sun and moon

In order to start evolving Eevee, you actually have to have one to begin with. Eevee can be found in a few places: on the way to the Pokemon Ranch, as well as along route 5. You can also receive and Eevee in an egg from the Pokemon Breeder’s sister. You want to collect a lot of Eevees if you want all forms

How I did this, was simply combo my Eevee from the egg with Ditto at the breeder and had them pumping out Eevee eggs all day. This ensured I had as many as I needed relatively easy. Ultimately how you decide to get Eevees is up to you, but there are a few options.

Evolving Eevee with Stones

Eevee has 3 forms of evolution that can be triggered by using specific stones:

Vaporeon – The water variant of Eevee can be had by simply using a Water Stone on an Eevee. Water Stones can be found in the open world, but can also be purchased at the Konikoni city’s Olivia’s jewelry shop for 3,000.

How to evolve pikipek in pokemon sun and moon

Jolteon – The electric variant of Eevee can be had by simply using a Thunder Stone on an Eevee. Lightning Stones can be found in the open world, but can also be purchased at the Konikoni city’s Olivia’s jewelry shop for 3,000.

How to evolve pikipek in pokemon sun and moon

Flareon – The fire variant of Eevee can be had by simply using a Fire Stone on an Eevee. Fire Stones can be found in the open world, but can also be purchased at the Konikoni city’s Olivia’s jewelry shop for 3,000.

It ‘ s been a big day for aspiring Pokémon trainers around the world.

The 2016 Electronic Entertainment Expo, AKA E3, is underway, and today ‘ s Nintendo Treehouse stream hit fans with a huge 40-minute preview of the upcoming Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon games, plus a gameplay trailer, revealing three brand new Pokémon.

We can ‘ t wait to catch ‘ em all!

Yungoos

(via The Pokémon Company)

Yungoos is a sharp-toothed, normal-type Pokémon whose design appears to be inspired by a mongoose.

We ‘ re guessing this cute rodent will appear very frequently toward the beginning of the game, like Rattata, Sentret, Zigzagoon, Bidoof, and Patrat have in the past. With those big teeth, we bet his evolved form will pack a punch!

Pikipek

The tropical Alola region featured in Pokémon Sun and Moon is inspired by Hawaii, and the normal and flying-type bird Pikipek looks completely at home there.

Look at that little tuft of feathers on its head! Pikipek just might give previous bird Pokémon like Pidgey, Starly, and Fletchling a run for their money.

Grubbin

(via The Pokémon Company)

Grubbin is a new bug-type Pokémon. He may not look that impressive now, but based on those pincers, we think his later forms have huge potential.

But these new additions aren ‘ t the only reasons we ‘ re looking forward to the new games! There are also the three adorable starters: Rowlet, Litten, and Popplio. Following in true Pokémon tradition, they are grass, fire and water-type, respectively.

And then of course there are the amazing new legendaries, the powerful sun Pokémon, Solgaleo, and the mysterious moon Pokémon, Lunala.

Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon will both be available on the Nintendo 3DS on Nov. 18, 2016. Watch the full Nintendo Treehouse segment on these new games below!

There is about a 1 in 4,000 chance a unique color variant of a Pokémon will appear in a random encounter, making “shiny Pokémon” the rarest type of monster you can capture. Some people have played Pokémon for decades and have never seen a shiny. Here’s how you can beat those odds and get a shiny in Sun and Moon.

First, you need to pick a monster. Be warned that this procedure takes lots of time, so choose carefully! If it helps, you can check out what the shiny sprites for each monster are here and here .

After you pick your target, stock up. You’re going to need plenty of revives, healing items, PP-replenishment (berries, elixers), and crucially, an Adrenaline Orb. ( Here’s where you can obtain them ; you should have at least a couple if you’ve played through the story.) Then, you need to go into battle against the monster you want to encounter in shiny form.

Pokémon Sun and Moon have a mechanic where monsters call for help. This is what you’re going to abuse. Your first move during a shiny hunt is to immediately use an Adrenaline Orb, which will make it more likely that your target will call for help.

How to evolve pikipek in pokemon sun and moon

32″ 4K display
Delivers 240Hz with 1ms response time for incredibly smooth gameplay. The Quantum Matrix Technology, HDR 2000, and UHD resolution all work together to create a crystal clear picture. The Matte display reduces glare helping keep your eyes focused on the action in front of you.

After that, you need to keep that same battle going for as long as possible. Get your target to low health—do NOT kill it—and wait for it to call for help. Once the second monster appears, kill one of the two Pokémon, and let the remaining critter call for help once more. The more new monsters are called into battle, the higher your “chain” goes, and the more likely it is that you will eventually encounter a shiny down the line.

It’s a very long, involved process. Some shiny chains can take hundreds of calls for help, some less. The first time I tried it I didn’t go in prepared with enough items or a good game plan, and I ended up burning through like 20 hyper potions, 20 revives, and a nearly wiped team, both in terms of HP and in PP. Worse, because it’s a boring process, I once even started falling asleep in the middle of a very long chain and accidentally killed my target Pokémon. I was devastated. Don’t let it happen to you!

What I’ve found helps is to pick a monster I can easily one-shot if I wanted to, but is still strong enough to not automatically die when I use a low-power move—shiny chains both require you to wipe out as many Pokémon in a row as you can, while also keeping one alive. In particular, I found that going in with a Pokémon that knows “False Swipe” helped, as it is a “restrained attack that prevents the target from fainting.” Here’s a list of Pokémon who can learn the move.

You should also have a good idea of the moveset that a wild Pokémon might have going in, so you can plan for it. For example, I initially wanted to try for a shiny Vulpix, but the problem is that it has a move that can deplete your PP—and keeping your PP high is already a problem in shiny hunting without that added hiccup. Other Pokémon will come with their own quirks, so it’s worth doing your homework before jumping in.

You also have to be prepared to just waste moves whenever necessary. There will be times when a monster calls for help and nobody responds, but since you can’t kill that lone Pokémon, you still need to keep the battle going with that enemy intact. In those cases, I either switched a monster out just to keep things moving, or I ate one of the cafe cookies that would have no effect, just to get to the next turn.

Testing the method out, it took me a few hours to encounter a shiny Mudbray (level 29) with Marowak who knew False Swipe. I used a couple of elixers and like a dozen hyper potions:

It’s not the coolest shiny Pokémon, but hey. I was testing out if this method truly worked. Voila.

The neat thing is, chaining is useful for things outside of shiny hunting, too. Chained Pokémon are more likely to have better stats/IVs. Pokémon can also call in monsters within their evolutionary line—I’ve seen a Snorunt call a Glalie into battle, though others have used this trick to force way rarer Pokémon to appear. You could, theoretically, get a Gyarados early in the game, right after getting a fishing rod, just by finding a Magikarp. Others have summoned low-level Salamences into their game just by finding a Bagon. It’s wild.

Finally, it’s worth noting that if you want a shiny starter, the process is entirely different. For that, you’ll need to soft reset your game at the start over and over again until Sun and Moon’s RNG blesses you, as SmkGaming05 explains below:

Some people are lucky and have found a shiny starter within a dozen soft resets, others have spent hours before finding the starter of their dreams. It’s a crapshoot, but hey: these buggers look worth it:

Now that Pokemon Sun and Moon have officially released, it’s time that we start our journey into Alola! Walking into a new area without any idea as to where to obtain the little stones that help you get the Pokemon you want can be pretty annoying – but there’s a solution for that.

Are you a Pokémon addict? Then you know how amazing it is to play Pokémon sun on your Nintendo. You won’t be fortunate enough to get an excellent-looking starter Pokémon all the time, but you know how important it is!! You’ll need to reset your game if did not get an excellent starter Pokemon.

There are plenty of reasons why one want to scrap their old save file.

Mostly, you don’t like your starter Pokemon, or you want to create a new character, or change the language of the game or just want to change your character name.

Whatever maybe the reason, you should know how to reset Pokemon Sun and Moon .

WHY SHOULD I RESET POKEMON SUN?

Although the game is going to be the same, the gaming experience will differ. You will fall in love with the game when you have your favorite Pokémon. And here is your trick to get your favorite Pokémon – Just reset the game!!

Is it that easy? Actually, yes, but each time you reset, you get a new Pokémon.

So, if you have a particular Pokémon in mind, it won’t be that easy. But some people do it for the shiny Pokémon.

Note: Reset pokemon sun as many times as you want to find your Pokémon

If you are one among those shiny Pokémon lovers, then you have an easier chance of finding what you need. Shiny Pokémons are nothing, but it is the Pokémons that have a better and shiny appearance than non-shiny versions of themselves.

So that’s it! All you need to do is reset the game as many times as you want to find your Pokémon. But do you find a reset button on your menu? So, there is the other tricky part.

There are few steps given below on how to reset Pokémon sun. It’s pretty simple. However, there is one thing you need to know about it- Pokémon sun supports only one saved game at a time, which is why you can’t play with 2 starter Pokémons simultaneously.

STEPS TO RESET POKEMON SUN

STEP 1: Delete your saved game.

NOTE: Every time you reset your game you’ll get new set of starter pokemon.

Yes, you read it right! All you need to do is delete your existing saved game and load a new game to reset Pokémon sun. After reset, you can get a new Pokémon. Also, even a new name!

To delete your game:

  • Load the game up on your device.
  • Make sure you are on the title screen.
  • The title screen loads up with “Solgaleo.” Note that you don’t miss the screen.
  • However, if you missed the screen, load the game again and make sure you don’t miss it this time.
  • While on the screen, hold UP+B+X together on your D-pad.
  • A prompt will appear, asking, are you sure about deleting the existing game. Select yes, and then continue.

STEP 2: CREATE NEW SAVE

Now, you can create a new save with a new Pokémon. Directly your character will be sent back to Alola for a new adventure.

So this is how to reset Pokémon Sun and moon on your Nintendo or Nintendo 3DS. I hope this solved your doubt and gave you an answer. You could reset your game for a lot of reasons.

The usual one being “I wanted to play the whole thing again”! Also, there are reasons that only Pokémon addicts would understand. So, hurry up! Get your shiny Pokémons and start playing your Pokémon Sun!

Pokemon Sun and Moon showed gameplay for the first time at Nintendo’s E3 conference — and we got to see a new battle UI, field effects, and more. A lot of info and new features were shown, so I’m going to break everything down in separate categories.

New Pokemon

In addition to the new Pokedex info, we got to see a couple new Pokemon you can catch.

  • Yungoos – Normal type Pokemon with 2 abilities, Stakeout and Strong Jaw.
    • A small mongoose that has 1 evolution.

How to evolve pikipek in pokemon sun and moon

  • Pikipek – Normal/Flying Pokemon with 2 abilities, Keen Eye and Skill Link.
    • A bird Pokemon that has 2 evolutions.
  • Grubbin – Bug Pokemon with the Swarm ability.
  • Magearna – A mythical Steel/Fairy Pokemon.
    • It has an ability called Soul-Heart, which raises its Special Attack when an ally Pokemon faints in battle.
    • It also has a new move called Fleur Cannon.

Battle Screen

The battle screen looks completely revamped, and shows a lot of new and helpful info during the fight.

  • Your trainer can now be seen during the whole fight, which is great for showing off your customization.
    • Enemy trainers are also completely rendered during the fights.
  • You can now look at detailed info on Pokemon, including the status effects they have on a new screen.
    • You can also see their stats like Attack and Defense.
  • When you fight a Pokemon, you will get info on what moves are super effective and not very effective.
    • This makes it much easier to fight effectively instead of needing to remember hundreds of moves and weaknesses.
  • When you level up, each stat is now shown in a different color.

Field Screen

We have already seen that trainer’s have the full models in and out of battle now, instead of the chibi models they used in the field last generation. And we also know some of what to expect when walking around in the world.

  • Shadows will appear on the top and bottom of the screen if you get neara trainer that will initiate a battle.

Pokedex

The new Pokedex shows some new info to help you when catching and deciding on teams.

  • The Pokedex now shows a white poke ball symbol next to the Pokemon to indicate evolutions or Pokemon to be paired with it.

New Battle Mode

Battle Royal is a new free-for-all game mode with 4 players, where each trainer sends out 1 Pokemon at a time, with a total of 3 each.

How to evolve pikipek in pokemon sun and moon

  • Pokemon can target whoever they wish during the fight.
  • The fight ends when 1 trainer loses all their Pokemon.
  • Winner is determined by how many Pokemon you knocked out and how many Pokemon you have left at the end of the battle.

That’s everything shown for Pokemon Sun and Moon at E3 2016 so far. I’ll be sure to update this post with any new info that comes out during E3!

Players of Pokémon Sun and Moon can now add the power of Mega Evolution to Mewtwo.

How to evolve pikipek in pokemon sun and moon

How to evolve pikipek in pokemon sun and moon

Players of Pokémon Sun and Moon can now add the power of Mega Evolution to Mewtwo.

The Legendary Mewtwo is already a pretty impressive Pokémon to have at your disposal, but from today you can make it even more powerful using Mega Evolution to evolve it into either Mega Mewtwo X or Mega Mewtwo Y.

You can do this by using a special code to download a pair of Mewtwo Mega Stones – Mewtwonite X and Mewtwonite Y – in Pokémon Sun and Moon. You can then give either stone to Mewtwo to hold, enabling it to Mega Evolve two different ways during a battle.

Here’s the Mewtwo Mega Stones code you need to get started:

M2DESCENT

How to download the Mega Mewtwo Mega Stones:

  1. Boot up you copy of Sun or Moon.
  2. On the main menu select Mystery Gift.
  3. Choose Receive Gift.
  4. Select Get with Code/Password, then Yes.
  5. Select Yes again to connect to the Interwebs.
  6. Enter the code: M2DESCENT
  7. The Mega Stones will be added to your copy of the game.
  8. Head to any Pokémon Center and speak to the delivery man to receive your Mega Stones
  9. Make sure you save the game
  10. Go battle.

Don’t forget that Mewtwo itself can’t actually be found in Sun or Moon, but you can bring it into Pokémon Bank via Poké Transporter from earlier games. It’s a bit of a process but you can find out how it works, right here.

Although the full game isn’t launching until next month, Pokémon Sun & Moon Special Demo Version is already available in the Nintendo eShop. And while most of us are enjoying our first steps into the Alola region, the complete Pokédex for the game has been leaked, thanks to the data extracted from the demo.

That’s right, we can now look at all the new Alolan forms, Ultrabeasts and Pokémon of the seventh generation. even shinies. So let’s do just that!

Obvious warning: massive spoilers ahead!

New Alolan Forms

How to evolve pikipek in pokemon sun and moon

The Alolan forms constitute one of the most attractive novelties of the upcoming games. They are Pokémon of the first generation that, due to the different climate and life conditions, have adapted to the Alola region. As you can see, it seems that they will keep the silly look of known Alolan forms like Meowth. The blonde Dugtrio is fabulous.

New Pokémon, Evolutions, and Pre-Evolutions

How to evolve pikipek in pokemon sun and moon

In addition to the Pokémon revealed by Game Freak, like Pikipek or Salandit, there are lots of new ones. We don’t know their names, statistics, or position in the Pokédex yet, since only their sprites were included in the demo, but we can see how they will look.

How to evolve pikipek in pokemon sun and moon

We can see some of the creatures we already know and other ones that follow the paradisiacal style that Pokémon Sun & Moon has — with some exceptions, like Oricorio (above) and its different versions, which look like dancers from various cultures.

How to evolve pikipek in pokemon sun and moon

New Guardian Deities

How to evolve pikipek in pokemon sun and moon

Alola is divided into four natural islands and an artificial one, property of Aether Foundation. During Nintendo’s E3 Treehouse we learned that Tapu Koko is the guardian of Meremere Island. Now we can confirm that there are another three Guardian Deities, each one protecting its own region.

New Legendaries

How to evolve pikipek in pokemon sun and moon

There was an exception to the inclusion of Pokémon names in the Special Demo: this is Marshadow, a mysterious Legendary. There is still a lot of information about Pokémon Sun & Moon we have not discovered yet.

How to evolve pikipek in pokemon sun and moon

However, what we know is that the Legendaries included in the box art of the games, Solgaleo and Lunala, have really weird pre-evolutions. The Mythical Pokémon Magearna also has a new form.

New Ultra Beasts

How to evolve pikipek in pokemon sun and moon

These Ultra Beasts are one of the best-kept secrets of Pokémon Sun & Moon. There are eight of them, maybe they will act as the new Gym Leaders? Some of them are really scary.

New Shinies

How to evolve pikipek in pokemon sun and moon

Finally, we can see all the Shiny Pokémon of the seventh generation, including Ultra Beasts, Legendaries and Alolan forms. This time, every kind of Pokémon can get a Shiny look. We will have to wait to know what we’ll have to do to get them.

The Poké Finder allows you to take pictures of Pokémon at certain spots, called photo spots. You can take six pictures per use, after which you can choose one picture to be evaluated and gain Thumbs-Up on. The pictures can be saved to the SD card.

The Poké Finder is also the only feature that utilizes the 3D effect of the Nintendo 3DS screen.

Versions

Via an Instagram-esque mini game, the pictures you take gain Thumbs-Up from other imaginary trainers. After you’ve gained a certain amount of Thumbs-Ups, the Poké Finder upgrades to a new version which unlocks new features. The following versions are available:

  • Ver. 1: The version available from the start
  • Ver. 2: Unlocks after gaining 1,500 Thumbs-Up and provides the ability to zoom
  • Ver. 3: Unlocks after gaining 10,000 Thumbs-Up and provides the ability to zoom further
  • Ver. 4: Unlocks after gaining 100,000 Thumbs-Up and provides the ability to zoom even further
  • Ver. 5: Unlocks after gaining 1,500,000 Thumbs-Up and provides a Pokémon-calling button, to catch the attention of the Pokémon you’re photographing

Pokemon come in all shapes and sizes, but perhaps one of the weirdest is the prehistoric, when the Pokemon universe tasks a ten-year-old child with reviving a species via fossils. It’s a tradition since the first generation of Pokemon games, and it proudly continues in Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon where you find four fossils in each game which leads to four potential version-exclusive Pokemon.

Unlike past Pokemon games you’re not forced to make an agonizing choice between a few different fossils – instead, you can get all four that are available in your game but will have to trade with the other game to see the remaining four. However, once you get them, it isn’t exactly clear what to do with the Pokemon Fossils – and that’s what we’re here to help you with! With this guide, you’ll be able to bring your Pokemon Fossils right back to life, using a helpful NPC to revive them into rare Fossil Pokemon. So – let’s get to it! Conservation demands it!

How to evolve pikipek in pokemon sun and moon

How to get all the Pokemon Fossils and turn them into Pokemon

In order to get your hands on the Fossil Pokemon, you’ll first need to get your hands on the fossils themselves. There are four total fossils in each game, and each fossil can only be found in a specific game. If you want to see all the fossil Pokemon available in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, you’ll need to trade with other players.

Instead of going spelunking intoa dungeon or cave, you’ll find the fossils in Pokemon Ultra Sun & Moon in a shop. Just head to KoniKoni City and look for the Stone Shop, which sells all manner of rare stones – including some handy fossils. You can buy them – they all cost 7000 Pokedollars a piece, and you’re limited to only one of each – so you can’t buy multiples. If you catch yourself a Ditto you can easily breed these Pokemon and trade them online to get all the Fossil Pokemon, however.

The old woman in the shop warns you that you’re only allowed one of each, so that’s a firm reminder. In Pokemon Ultra Sun she’ll have the Helix Fossil, Claw Fossil, Skull Fossil, Cover Fossil and Jaw Fossil available. In Pokemon Ultra Moon she’ll have the Dome Fossil, Root Fossil, Armor Fossil, Plume Fossil and Sail Fossil.

In order to turn into actual Pokemon, you’ll want to head to the Pokemon Center on Route 8 – you can fly there easily enough. From outside that Pokemon Center go up slightly until you’re able to turn right into a forest. You’ll find a guy in here along with his camper van/RV who will offer to revive your fossils for you. This farmer-looking guy talks about a dream park, or something, but the important thing is he can revive your fossils into living Pokemon!

So, what do you get for each fossil? Well.

Pokemon Ultra Sun Fossil Pokemon – Omanyte, Anorith, Cranidos, Tirtouga and Tyrunt and their evolutions

Pokemon Ultra Sun contains four fossils that can be nurtured into living Pokemon once more – and that’s twice as many as there were back in the original Pokemon Sun! Nice. They are:

  • The Helix Fossil becomes Omanyte, one of the original Red/Green/Blue/Yellow generation Pokemon in Gen I. It’s Rock/Water type and evolves into Omastar.
  • The Claw Fossil becomes Anorith, and that can evolve into Armaldo, a Rock/Bug type from Gen III.
  • The Skull Fossil turns into Cranidos, which evolves into Rampardos – a Rock type from Gen IV.
  • The Cover Fossil becomes Tirtouga, which evolves into Carracosta – a Water/Rock type from Gen V.
  • The Jaw Fossil becomes Tyrunt, which evolves into Tyrantrum – a Rock/Dragon type from Gen VI.

Forgive a newbie’s question, last pokemon I played was Gen 3 Hoenn. Back in the day to my knowledge the only way to get all 3 starters would be to trade (more specifically I would ‘New Game’ the game 3 times and send the starter to a friend ASAP, then I would then receive the 2 starters from earlier runs back on my 3rd start).

Is there any other easier way to get all 3 starters?

Edit: The benefit of the method I’ve mentioned above is I get to start and use all 3 starters from the beginning of the game, and it is guaranteed/quick with relatively low hassle. (Don’t have to deal with an auction house and find/wait for a trade).

Is it possibly to directly trade with a specific person online like the wired connections of the old days?

My other concern would be if the global trade system only becomes available say midway through the game.

Edit: I don’t see a new game button like the old Gen 1-3 games have when you start the game.

You can breed your starter (either with a Pokemon of the same Egg group if it’s female, or otherwise with a Ditto) to obtain Eggs that will hatch into the starter Pokemon, effectively giving you ‘duplicates’ to trade with others. This has been possible since Generation 2 (Gold, Silver, Crystal). So instead of simply restarting the game & trading away the other starters, you can breed them and trade with friends (assuming that you all chose different starters to one another!).

In the newer games however, you are able to trade online, and therefore aren’t reliant on having friends that started with a different starter to you. In Sun/Moon, your online options include:

  • Put up one of your duplicate starters (or really any Pokemon) for trade on the Global Trade System (GTS), and request one of the other starters for trade.
    • Note that more highly sought after Pokemon will be more likely to get a response, and as ‘Starter A’ is about as rare as ‘Starter B’ it’s more likely that someone will be willing to trade you this.
  • Simply browse GTS for the starter that you want, and see what other people want in exchange.
  • Wonder Trade a lot. With Wonder trade your chances might be slimmer to get the starters you want, but with them generally being more highly sought after it’s more likely other people are hatching them and Wonder trading them away.
  • Spend time in online Pokemon communities (especially those centered around trading). One thing that is now possible when compared to Generation 3 is trading directly over the internet, and a lot of organised Pokemon communities feature a dedicated trading scene. Reddit, Facebook or even here on Arqade, you might find someone willing to trade you a Starter.

Update: Now with the release of the Pokebank for Sun/Moon, you are able to deposit your starter Pokemon in the Bank, allowing you to restart the game and withdraw them again at a later stage (i.e. restart twice, depositing two starters, and then withdraw them again when you have your third starter).

All online trading facilities (GTS, Wonder Trade, and Link Trade i.e. Friend to Friend) are handled inside ‘Festival Plaza’ – accessible from the main menu. It is unlocked after most of the initial “tutorial/story” section is done (after you visit the Professor’s house) – probably about 15-20 minutes into the start of a game.

It is also still possible to directly trade with a friend over the internet, this is accomplished by using the ‘Link Trade’ option, again a part of Festival Plaza. See my answer here which covers the whole process: How to I trade with friends over the internet in Pokemon Sun/Moon?

The Treehouse Live at E3 presentation revealed three new Pokémon – Pikipek, Yungoos, and Grubbin. Pikipek is a Normal-type/Flying-type Pokémon which has the Abilities Keen Eye and Skill Link. It is the Woodpecker Pokémon, is #10 in the Pokédex and is able to learn the move Peck. This bird Pokémon can strike 16 times a second with its beak, which is strong enough to break through stone. They drill holes to store food and will also store objects that glitter in these holes as well. It has a height of 1’00”, a weight of 2.6 lbs and has two as of yet unrevealed evolutions. Its Japanese name is 「ツツケラ』 Tsutsukera.

Yungoos is a Normal-type Pokémon and is the Loitering Pokémon. It has a height of 2’04”, weight of 13.2 lbs and has one as of yet unrevealed evolution. It has the Abilities Stakeout and Strong Jaw. Stakeout allows Yungoos to deal double damage to Pokémon that switch in mid-battle. It eats a lot of food since it is never satisfied and its fangs are so strong that it can crush and eat very hard objects. Furthermore it stalks prey until it gets tired and then falls asleep on the route that it was stalking its prey. It was originally not a native of the Alola Region. It’s Japanese name is 「ヤングース』 Yangūsu.

Grubbin is a Bug-type Pokémon. It is considered the Larva Pokémon. It has a height of 1’04” and a weight of 9.7 lbs. It’s currently unknown if Grubbin can evolve. Its Ability is Swarm and is able to learn the move String Shot. It uses its jaw to burrow through the ground and is found by power plants due to its love of electricity. Its Japanese name is 「アゴジムシ』 Agojimushi.

The starter Pokémon Popplio can learn the moves Disarming Voice. It also has the moves Tackle, Growl, and Water Gun at the beginning of the journey. Litten is shown to be able to use the move Scratch, along with Ember. Rowlet is shown with the moves Growl, Tackle, and Leafage. Magearna’s Ability Soul-Heart raises its Special Attack stat by one stage when another Pokémon faints. It will be obtainable by scanning a particular QR code in Pokémon Sun and Moon. The Legendary Pokémon Lunala’s Full Moon phase is activated when it uses its signature move Moongeist Beam. Solgaleo’s Radiant Sun phase is activated when it uses its signature move Sunsteel Strike.

In the beginning of the game, the neighboring town has a festival. During battle, you are able to see how much a stat is altered on a Pokémon after a move that alters stats is used. When Pokémon are registered in the Pokédex, there are Poké Ball icons that indicate how many Pokémon are in the evolution chain.

Each of the islands of the Alola Region have a guardian Pokémon. The island where the player starts is called Melemele and the name of Melemele’s guardian is Tapu Koko. In the gameplay dialogue, it is mentioned that the player has met Tapu Koko before in the game. The player battles Hau for at the festival. During this battle, Hau uses Pichu and the Starter Pokémon that is weak to the Starter Pokémon that was chosen by the player. Attacking moves display whether they are Not Very Effective or Super Effective against the Pokémon the player is battling. This information is displayed in battles that occur after you’ve faced the Pokémon at least once. It is mentioned that along with being able to choose skin color, players can also customize their clothing in the game.

The Battle Royal is a new battle mode and is held in the Battle Royal Dome. In this battle mode, four players each battle with three Pokémon and send out one at a time. After the battle, each trainer is ranked based on how many Pokémon they each knocked out, and Pokémon they have remaining.

Plus how to evolve Pikachu into Alolan Raichu and how to get exclusive Pika-family Z-Crystals.

Pokémon Sun and Moon introduces players to the sun-drenched archipelago of the Alola region and its whole new roster of pocket monsters all ready to catch, train, trade and battle.

With around 800 Pokémon now registered in the national Pokédex, there is still one critter that, love it or hate it, stands apart as the franchises’ mascot: the red-cheeked, volt-charged electric mouse, Pikachu.

From his first appearance in Pokémon Red and Blue (in his full chubby glory), to the “Pika”-shouting 3D rodent we have today, Ash Ketchum’s closest friend has been the face of Nintendo’s insanely popular franchise since day one.

As a result, each time a new Pokémon game arrives the hunt for Pikachu begins anew, and Pokémon Sun and Moon will be no different. To help Pika-poachers out there, IBTimes UK has put together a quick guide on where to find Pikachu very, very early in the Nintendo 3DS titles via his pre-evolved form, Pichu.

Pokémon Sun and Moon: Where to find Pikachu (via Pichu)

The good news is you won’t have to go far to nab a member of the Pikachu family as it roams around in the tall grass on Alola’s Route 1.

As soon as you are gifted a set of Poke Balls, make your way back to your mum’s house and head right from the door. Walk north along Route 1 and you are officially in Pichu territory. Edit: It turns out that the little scamp is only in one patch of tall grass on Route 1. To find it carry on up the path, past two trainers until you see a set of stairs with torches on either side. To the left of here you’ll find a darker patch of grass where Pichus roam.

Pichu is quite a rare find here (a 5% chance, no less) as you’ll mostly be contending with endless swathes of Pikpeks (get one, they are really good) and Yungoos. Persist, however, and you’ll eventually find a pint-sized Pichu of your very own. At this point you may not even need to damage it to catch it due to its low level (between 3-5), so throw a ball and cross your fingers.

Now we need to evolve him!

Pokémon Sun and Moon: How to evolve Pichu into Pikachu

This process remains unchanged from previous generations since as far back as Pokémon Gold and Silver. In short, your Pichu needs to love you.

The simplest way to do this is to walk around while Pichu is in your party. Held items such as a Soothe Bell (which doubles happiness earned). A quick “lomi lomi massage” in Konikoni City, avoiding fainting in battle and feeding/petting it in Pokémon Refresh will also add to Pichu’s happiness levels.

Once it reaches optimum happiness your Pichu will evolve after levelling in battle. Now you have a Pikachu of your very own, it’s time to learn his ultimate, unique Z-Move, Catastropika!

How to evolve pikipek in pokemon sun and moon

Pokémon Sun and Moon: Where to find Pikanium Z

To use this super-powered, Pikachu-exclusive Z-Move, your yellow buddy will first need to learn its signature move, Volt Tackle. Thankfully, both the Z-Crystal and the Volt Tackle Move Tutor are found in the same location.

When you reach Konikoni City in the south western corner of Akala Island, head north until you see three Pikachus and a lady in red overalls. Talk to her and she will teach your Pikachu Volt Tackle and give you the Pikanium Z.

Make the Pikanium Z your Pikachu’s held item from the party menu and next time you send it out in battle you can unleash electric havoc on your foes (and watch Pika and your avatar do a little dance routine).

Pokémon Sun and Moon: How to evolve your Pikachu into Alolan Raichu

There is now a big decision to make, though. Do you evolve your Pikachu again into a stronger Raichu or “do an Ash” and keep him in Pika-form forever?

The choice is even tougher in Sun and Moon, too, as you aren’t dealing with a standard Raichu: this is a dual-typed, Psychic/Electric, tail-surfing Alolan Raichu.

Either way, if you have a Thunder Stone to hand, feeding it to Pikachu will trigger the evolution, but be warned: you won’t be able to use the Pikanium Z-Crystal any more. There is, however, a Raichu-exclusive Z-Crystal called Aloraichium Z which is obtained in Seafolk Village on Poni island and allows any Alolan Raichu with the move Thunderbolt to use a powerful Z-Move called “Stoked Sparksurfer”.

Here’s how to evolve Alola Raichu, as well as the rest of the new Pokémon in Pokémon Sun and Moon.

Guide by Nadia Oxford, Staff Writer

Pokémon is all about catching ’em all – but it’s also arguably about evolving ’em all (when applicable). Pokémon don’t simply look different when they evolve: They also become stronger, and can even change their typing. The same holds true for Pokémon Sun and Moon. This Pokemon Sun and Moon Evolution guide will tell you all you need to know, including how to evolve Alola Raichu.

Alola has a host of new Pokémon, many of which boast unique evolutions. In some cases, evolving an Alola Pokémon is simply a matter of levelling it up. In other cases, you need to perform special actions.

This guide tells you what you need to do to evolve each Pokémon in Sun and Moon. For related hints, tips, and walkthroughs, consult our Pokémon Sun and Moon guide!

Pokemon Sun and Moon Evolution Guide

To evolve Rowlet into Dartrix and Decidueye — Rowlet becomes Dartrix at level 17, then it becomes Decidueye at level 34.

To evolve Litten into Torracat and Incineroar — Litten becomes Torracat at level 17, then it becomes Incineroar at Level 34.

To evolve Popplio into Brionne and Primarina — Like the other starters, Popplio evolves into its second form, Brionne, at level 17, then it grows into its final form, Primarina, at level 34.

To evolve Rockruff into Lycanroc (Midday or Midnight form) — Rockruff shifts from its adorable puppy form when you hit level 25. However, its evolution is affected by the version of the game you’re playing. In Pokémon Sun, Rockruff shifts to the quadruped “Midday form” of Lycanroc during daylight hours in-game.

There is no shiny Pikipek in Pokémon Go, but there’s still a number of great reasons why you should try to get your hands on as many Pikipeks as possible during this week’s Spotlight Hour.

You’ll be given the opportunity to catch as many Pikipek as you can in Pokémon Go, with the possibility of catching a 100% perfect IV stats Pikipek. There’s also a Spotlight Hour bonus to enjoy as you play.

Pikipek’s Spotlight Hour falls during the final hours of the Alola to Alola event, and its Collection Challenge, in Pokémon Go. Both Trumbeak and Toucannon – Pikipek’s evolutions – are part of this Collection Challenge, so, if you’re yet to complete the challenge, this Spotlight Hour is the perfect time to do so!

Pikipek 100% perfect IV stats in Pokémon Go

This week’s Spotlight Hour is a great opportunity to catch a Pikipek with perfect IV stats.

Once you’ve caught a 100% IV stats Pikipek, you’ll have the choice of evolving it into a Trumbeak with perfect stats, and then finally a Toucannon. While they don’t exactly hold much sway in the Go Battle League, they can be useful in battling Team Go Rocket Grunts or in raids.

The CP values that correspond to perfect 15/15/15 values are as follows:

  • Level 30 (wild CP maximum) – 780 CP
  • Level 35 (weather boosted CP maximum) – 845 CP

The wild CP value aligns with your trainer level until you reach Level 30 and, due to the majority of the player base now being above this level, we’ve kept to these values for the sake of simplicity. These values will, however, be different if you’re currently below Level 30.

Is there a shiny Pikipek in Pokémon Go?

There is not a shiny Pikipek currently in Pokémon Go.

Shiny Pikipek has yet to be added into the game. Generally, the Alolan Pokémon in Pokémon Go don’t have shiny variants, though this is likely to change in the future. Unfortunately, this means that you cannot have a shiny Trumbeak, or Toucannon in Pokémon Go either.

New to the game is a long overdue Mega Evolution update, which has arrived alongside the A Mega Moment research. May 2022 is closing with the Alola to Alola event and special research quest, which has four different sets of challenges for you to choose from. Currently both the Ultra League and Element Cup are running in the Go Battle League. Elsewhere, we’ve recently seen the release of more Gen 7 Pokémon as part of the Season of Alola. The first details surrounding Go Fest 2022 have also been announced, including the event date.

What does shiny Pikipek look like?

Since shiny Pikipek has yet to be added to Pokémon Go, we have to look to other Pokémon games to see it. Pokémon Sun and Moon features a shiny form, which you can see in the image below:

This gives us a good idea as to what shiny Pikipek might look like if it is eventually added into Pokémon Go. We’ll have to wait and see whether it will be added anytime soon.

Other reasons to catch as many Pikipek as possible

Aside from the chance to catch loads of Pikipek in Pokémon Go, there are a number of other reasons to partake in this week’s Spotlight Hour:

  • This Spotlight Hour’s bonus is double catch Stardust, which means you’ll be rewarded for every Pokémon you catch.
  • If you’re a newcomer, this Spotlight Hour is the perfect time to collect enough Pikipek candy to fully evolve this Pokémon into Trumbeak.
  • To complete the Alola to Alola Collection Challenge, you need obtain both Trumbeak and Toucannon – Pikipek’s evolutions – via evolution, so, if you’re yet to complete this Collection Challenge, this Spotlight Hour is the perfect time to do so!
  • Tapu Koko, Tapu LeleTapu Bulu and Tapu Fini have returned to five-star raids, so you may encounter other players battling this Gen 7legendary Pokémon.
  • Thanks to Pikipek being a normal and flying-type, catching a bunch during this Spotlight Hour will add progress to both your Normal and Flying catch bonus medals.

Spotlight Hour events only last for an hour – 6pm to 7pm (local time) – but don’t worry if you can’t partake in this week’s event. Next week sees a brand new month take the spotlight, with a whole new lineup of featured Pokémon to catch. The first will be Nosepass on Tuesday, 7th June!
