Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: How to evolve Rellor into Rabsca

Nintendo /

Between returning favorites or brand new ones, four hundred some odd Pokemon exist within the newly released Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Many of these come with the ability to get evolve into powerful stronger forms with interesting benefits.

Whether you’re taking the time to level up Pokemon like the adorable new starters, going for long walks with your Pawmo, finding out the new evolutions for Primeape and Girafarig, or trying to remember how to evolve returning Pokemon like Rockruff and Pikachu, you’ve got a lot to keep in mind.

The dung-beetle Bug-type Rellor is one of those that takes a lot of consideration (and time) to evolve.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: How to evolve Rellor into Rabsca

Rellor is quite possibly one of the hardest Pokemon in the game to evolve if you’re looking to get the Bug/Psychic evolution known as Rabsca. Much like the previously mentioned Pawmo, to evolve it you’re going to need to get in some legwork.

In fact, to evolve Rellor into Rabsca, you need to press R to walk with it in Let’s Go mode and put in 1000 steps. After that, the next time it levels up it’ll evolve.

What makes this so difficult is that Rellor, as I said above, is a dung beetle. It is remarkably slow so you’re going to be more than likely crouching to walk slowly with it. For 1000 steps. It is a nightmare.

Your best bet is to walk in a very small circle for a while so that you don’t get too far away causing it to go back in its ball.

Rabsca is kind of worth it though. While all of its stats beyond Special Attack aren’t much to write home about and it’s got quite a few weaknesses, it also has a move known as Revival Blessing.

This move not only revives a fainted member of your party but brings them back to 50% health turning Rabsca into a White Mage. Depending on how you want to go about things, having Rabsca can make things pretty interesting.
