How to evolve Snom into Frostoth in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet


Snom will evolve after increasing his friendship into Pokemon Scarlet and Violet and then leveling up at night. There are several ways to increase friendship in-game, with items like the Soothe Bell or friendship-boosting berries speeding up the process. The new Let’s Go feature of making Pokémon walk is another way to build friendship, similar to how walking in other games would increase it.

Snom needs a lot of friendship to evolve into Pokémon Scarlet and Violet and then level up at night. The game’s day and night cycle moves pretty quickly, so just waiting will do the trick. Snom must evolve immediately because he doesn’t have a higher level moveset until he does. He has several weaknesses between evolutions, but Frostoth’s base stats make him at least do a lot of damage. The base stat changes when evolving are:

  • HP – 30 to 70
  • Attack – 25 to 60
  • Defending – 35 to 60
  • special attack – 45 to 125
  • Special Defense – 30 to 90
  • Speed – 20 to 65
  • Total – 185 to 475

How to increase friendship in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

There are four main ways to increase a Pokemon’s friendship and fighting them is a passive way to do it. Making sure they don’t get knocked out with healing items will increase it further, but a quicker way is to equip it with a calming bell. By holding onto Soothe Bell, Pokemon’s friendship growth will increase by 50% and can be purchased from Delibird Presents after getting six Gym Badges. Walking with Pokemon will also increase friendship and on Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, this can be done with the Let’s Go feature by pressing the R button. There are also friendship-boosting berries that can be picked up in the overworld, catching Pokemon in a ball of luxury will increase friendship gain, and picnics can also increase friendship.
