How to evolve Phantump into Trevenant in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Teal Mask

The process of evolving Phantump into Trevenant, in the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Teal Mask DLC is the same as it has been since the Pokemon debuted in the Kalos region of X and Y. Just trade it across games to trigger the evolution.

There's no held item or stone you'll need to hunt down first, and it doesn't need to be at night like when evolving Gligar into Gliscor.

Phantump trade codes for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Teal Mak

Trading Phantumps with a friend is the easiest way for you both to get a Trevenant registered to your Kitakami Pokedex, but it's not the only way to evolve Phantump.

If you can't wait for a friend to help you out, you can use unofficial trade codes to trade Phantumps online.

These typically match the Pokemon's National Dex number, so use 0708 in this case when prompted to set a code for an online trade. This should match you with others using that code to trade Phantumps for the purpose of evolving them into Trevenant.
