Classic Pokemon Growlithe has got a new regional variant in Pokemon Legends: Arceus – here’s how you can evolve it into Hisuian Arcanine!

Even if Pokemon Legends Arceus has taken players back in time, it has introduced plenty of new regional variants on classic Pokemon.

While most players want to know how to evolve Rufflet into Hisuian Braviary so they can fly around the map, the new regional variant of Arcanine is definitely one of the coolest looking.

Plus, it’s a great Fire-Type substitute for your battle party as Charizard isn’t in Pokemon Legends Arceus!

Moreover, you’ll definitely want to get one as mega evolutions could be coming to Pokemon Legends Arecus. Although Arcanine doesn’t have a mega evolution in previous games, this could well change with its Hisuian form!

So without further ado, here’s how you can evolve Growlithe into Hisuian Arcanine!

How to Evolve Growlithe into Hisuian Arcanine in Pokemon Legends: Arceus

You’ll need to get a Fire Stone to evolve the new Growlithe from the Hisui region into Hisuian Arcanine!

  • First, you’ll need to catch a Hisuian Growlithe. You can find this Pokemon in Cobalt Coastlands – specifically the Windbreak Stand and Veilstone Cape locations.
  • Make sure to use this method to increase shiny odds in Pokemon Legends Arceus if you’re after a shiny Arcanine.
  • Just like the standard Growlithe in previous Pokemon games, you’ll need a Fire Stone to evolve Hisuian Growlithe.
  • To get a Fire Stone, you can buy one for 1000 Merit Points at the Trading Post in Jubilife Village. Alternatively, they can be found by destroying Red Tumblestone Crystals that are found all around Hisui.
  • Finally, use the Fire Stone on your Growlithe at any time to evolve it into Hisuian Arcanine.

While you’re at it, you might want to get another Fire Stone as you’ll need one to get all of the Eeveelutions in Pokemon Legends Arceus!

And that’s how you can evolve Growlithe to Hisuian Arcanine! Once you’ve done this, you’re one step closer to completing the Pokedex and catching Arceus!
