As beloved as the new generation nine Pokémon are, you can’t deny the allure of “old school” Pokémon. One such classic Pokémon we can’t get enough of Larvitar,
This rugged character is a Ground/Rock type that eventually evolves into the ferocious-looking Tyranitar, a dinosaurian Pokémon that’s as formidable as it is large.
Here’s the thing, though: You can only get Larvitar in Pokémon Scarlet. This means that all Violet trainers are required to use Brandon’s How to Get Bagan guide (because this one is exclusive).
And secondly, it is quite difficult to find Larvitar. Despite Paldea being located in several different areas of the map, it is rarely seen. But we have some tips and tricks to deal with it…
Where to get Larvitar in Pokémon Scarlet
Larvitar can be found at a handful of sites across Paldia, but the easiest place to find it early in the game is the South Province (Area Five).
If you fly to the Poco Path Lighthouse and look at your map you’ll see a spiral shaped mountain in the distance – travel there to get the Larvitar.
Be careful, a lot of Xue populate that area as well, and with two Pokémon sharing similar colors it’s easy to confuse one for the other if you’re running around.
However considering Xue is a Dragon type Pokémon you may want to catch it; It’s not one of the best Dragon-type Pokémon, but it’s still a powerful ally.
If you’re not near Southern Province, you can search the following areas instead:
- Eastern Province (Region Three)
- West Province (Region One)
- asado desert
- Alfornada Cave
- Dalizapa Marg
To increase your chances, set up a picnic at one of the above locations and prepare a Jambon-Beurre sandwich. Part of its effect is that it increases encounters with Ground type Pokémon, making it ideal for Larvitar.
How to Evolve Larvitor in Pokémon Scarlet
Evolve Larvitar into Pupitar at level 30, then wait until level 55 for it to evolve into Tyranitar.
Now that you have that, you can now obtain Larvitar with (relative) ease! If you’re looking for more useful items and tips, be sure to check out Pokémon Scarlet and Violet mystery gift codes.
