The Pokemon franchise has had a lot of different Pokemon over the years and in that time period there were also various methods of evolution. You have the regular level-based evolutions, as well as those that require evolution stones. There are others that may require specific happiness stats or something else, but the all-new Galarian Canarticho might just take the cake with a very complex evolution method. This guide will tell you how you can evolve Canarticho in Galician into Palarticho in Pokemon Sword and Shield.
How to evolve Canarticho in Galician into Palarticho
We have already explained in another guide how to find Galarian Canarticho exclusively in Pokemon Sword, but we have not covered the evolution process of the Pokemon. Whether you took Galarian Canarticho in Sword or received it as a Shield trade, the evolution process will be the same.
First of all, there is no optimal development level for Galarian Canarticho. Instead, you must imperatively satisfy to trigger the evolution at the end of a trainer battle.
For your Galician Farfetch to become Palarticho, you need your Galician Farfetch Gal to score three critical hits in a single trainer battle. It obviously doesn't have to be against a single Pokemon, but it has to be in the same Trainer Battle. This is certainly a difficult task to complete considering that you not only need to get all three critical hits, but also find trainers with enough Pokemon to do it.
The key to achieving this will be to increase your chances of landing critical hits. To help increase your chances, you should make sure to get a few Gunshot items to increase your chance of hitting crits. You can also use the Focus Energy move if you have it to increase your chances in combat as well. This one might seem quite daunting to execute in a battle, but it can definitely improve your chances of succeeding and getting Palarticho.
