Here’s how you can evolve Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s Fire-type starter, Fuecoco, into Crocalor and Skeledirge.
The starter Pokemon for every generation are all iconic in their own way and Fuecoco is certainly one of the best in the series for many years. However, the time comes for even the cutest starter Pokemon to become more powerful and evolve.
Luckily, Fuecoco has two great evolutions, Crocalor and Skeledirge, which you will want to add to your Pokedex and use in battles! What’s more, the way to evolve them is extremely simple!
How to Evolve Fuecoco into Crocalor
To evolve Fuecoco into Crocalor in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, you need to reach level 16 with Fuecoco.
Upon reaching level 16, your Fuecoco will immediately start to evolve into Crocalor, its mid-stage evolution. Crocalor is larger than Fuecoco and gets a sombrero made of a nest with an egg in the middle!
So you can speed up the level-up process, you’ll want to use your Fuecoco in as many battles as possible. Plus, raising its friendship level with Picnics will give you an EXP boost!
Fuecoco, like all starter Pokemon, also has a third and final evolution, Skeledirge, that you will want to add to your Pokedex too!
How to Evolve Crocalor into Skeledirge in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
To evolve Crocalor into Skeledirge in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, you need to level up your Crocalor to level 36.
As soon as your Crocalor reaches level 36 in the game, it will automatically transform into Skeledirge, Fuecoco’s, fearsome, crocodilian final evolution.
In addition to the change in appearance, it also gains a secondary typing. While Fuecoco and Crocalor are Fire type, Skeledirge is a Fire/Ghost-type Pokemon.
