How do I evolve Bramblin in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet?

To evolve Bramblin into Brambleghast, you'll need to enter the Let's Go mode while out and about in Paldea. You do this by putting it in the lead spot of your party, pressing R to let it out, and walking.

Once you've walked 1,000 steps in the Let's Go mode with Bramblin, its evolution will trigger the next time it levels up. It's basically like any other tumbleweed: it gets bigger as it travels around. In the sense of this Pokemon, it evolves when it rolls around enough.

We have a guide on how to walk Pokemon fast in Scarlet and Violet. There's a trick that makes evolving Bramblin take about three minutes.
