Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: How to evolve Igglybuff and Jigglypuff

Nintendo /

The evolutionary line of Igglybuff, Jigglypuff, and Wigglytuff are pretty old in terms of when they were added to the game and yet, at no point do their evolutions involve hitting a certain level. So, how do we go about it in Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet?

Well, let’s say you caught yourself an Igglybuff. You can find them pretty early in the game and they’re super cute so I can’t fault you.

Once you have it on your team though you might notice that while you’re leveling it, it’s not really doing much to grow. That’s because to level up Igglybuff, you need to raise its friendship levels to max.

You can do this by playing with it and washing it at picnics, as well as taking it for walks in Let’s Go mode. While there’s no meter or indicator to let you know, you’ll know when it happens just because it will level up and, if the conditions are met, it’ll evolve into the famous Jigglypuff. If it’s not, play with it more frequently and it’ll happen.

From there, if Jigglypuff isn’t good enough for you and you need more floof in your life, you can still evolve it one more time.

To get Jigglypuff to evolve into the larger Wigglytuff, use a Moon Stone on it. You can randomly find these littering the landscape at night time so just make sure you’re picking up items as you traverse the world.

We’ve been putting together guides for many of the Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet that have unique and different ways to evolve. While your starters require the tried and true method of simply leveling up, others like Gimmighoul, Pawmo, Finizen, Primeape and Girafarig require a few extra steps. Some are still straightforward, but others can be a bit confusing.
