This new addition has a high 60% encounter rate, so it shouldn’t take too much work to get once you know where to look. It’s evolution, Palafin, is a whole other issue. For that, you require some special effort.
In this guide, we go through how to evolve Finizen into Palafin, as well as where to find Finizen..
Finizen locations in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
Finizen can be found all around the map, in the water on the coast. Get yourself down to any beach, dock, or waterside property you can find and take to the water, and you’ll find Finizen out there waiting.
Just to prove how widespread the Finizen habitat is, you can check out this map below:
How to evolve Finizen into Palafin in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
Once you have your Finizen, you’ll obviously want to evolve it right? To do so, you’ll need to head to the Union Circle with other players. Only in the Union Circle can Finizen evolve, so don’t go pumping rare candies into it unless you’re in the multiplayer mode.
Once you’re in the Union Circle, all you have to do is level up Finizen to level 38. As soon as you do, it will start to evolve.
That’s it for evolving Finizen into Palafin. For more on Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, take a look at our guide to the order of each gym, Titan, and Star Boss, as well as how to get yourself a bunch of Eevee’s.
