The brand-new hammer Pokemon Tinkatink is one of Scarlet & Violet’s best newcomers. Here’s where to find it and how it evolves:
Pokemon Scarlet & Violet are finally here, and we’re getting to explore the Paldea region for the first time. This new Spain-inspired environment is full of new and returning creatures, but there are some that are turning heads already.
Here’s everything you need to know about finding and evolving Tinkatink, your new favorite Fairy/Steel-Type Pokemon:
Where to Catch Tinkatink Map Location – Pokemon Scarlet & Violet
The best place to catch Tinkatink is an area just Northeast of South Province (Area Three). Head out of the East side of Mesagoza (where the Academy is located), and follow the trail up to a set of small ruins.
The hammer-wielding Pokemon is a rare spawn in this area so you might not find it right away. However, by using this trick to reset the wild Pokemon in any area, it won’t be long before you encounter one.

How to Evolve Tinkatink into Tinkatuff
To evolve Tinkatink into Tinkatuff, simply level up the Pokemon in battle or using Exp. Candy until it reaches Level 24.
At this point the camera will pan over to the Pokemon and you’ll see it evolve into its mid-stage evolution – Tinkatuff!
How to Evolve Tinkatuff into Tinkaton
To evolve Tinkatuff into Tinkaton, you’ll need to level up the Pokemon in battle or using Exp. Candy until it reaches Level 38.
Now the powerful Pokemon will have the opportunity to learn Gigaton Hammer, an incredible Steel-Type attack with 160 power that can’t be used twice in a row!
Tinkatink Strengths & Weaknesses
Tinktatink (and its evolved forms Tinkatuff and Tinkaton) are all Fairy/Steel type. This means they’re 2x weak to Ground and Fire-Type attacks.
However, this interesting combination makes the Pokemon resistant to Normal, Flying, Rock, Grass, Psychic, Ice, Dark, and Fairy-Type, meaning that it’ll only take half the damage from incoming attacks of those types. It’s also double resistant to Bug-Type moves!
