In Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, you can get a new evolutionary line based on Tentacruel called Toedscruel. Here’s everything you need to know to get convergent evolution, including how to find and evolve Toedscool early in the game.
How to get Toedscruel in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
There are two ways to get the new Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, either by catching them in the overworld or by evolving them. Unlike other Gen 9 Pokémon, Toedscruel only appears in one location in the entire Paldea region. So if you want to capture the evolution of the second stage in the wild, you will need to travel a long distance to the location described below.

Where to find Toedscruel’s spawn location in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
toedscruel spawns in Socarrat Trail, which North of Lake Casseroya. The Ground/Grass-type spawns near trees at levels as high as 55, so you’ll need to play through a lot of the main campaign before attempting this encounter. Because the game starts on the complete opposite end of the map from Paldea, it will take you a while to get to the northern part of the region. However, there is a much faster way to get Toedscruel, and that is by finding and evolving your first stage Toedscool in the Southern Province.
Where to find Toedscool in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Toedscool can be found in almost every province on the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet map. The fastest way to find Tentacruel’s secondary species is to head to the southern part of the region from Paldea University. Toedscool engenders at the beginning of the story Southern Province (Area One), Southern Province (Area Four)either Southern Province (Area Five).
The Pokemon is a rare spawn at level 17, so it may be a while before you see it. Simply head to any of those locations and press the Y button to activate your radar. If you don’t see it, keep moving around its habitat areas until it appears on your minimap. Toedscool likes to cling to the roots of plants, which is why it is often found wandering around trees. Once you’ve added the new Pokemon to your team, you’ll be able to turn it into Toedscruel.
How to evolve Toedscool to Toedscruel in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Toedscool evolves within toedscruel from level 30. You don’t need to know any moves or have special items, it’s just leveling up. Because of this, you can get a Toedscruel quite early in the game. If you want a high level Toedscruel with no training required, there is always the option of catching it in North Paldea.
