Is Rowlet in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet?

Some early leaks from the game in the run-up to launch showed a complete Paldean Pokedex that included Rowlet.

Though not every starter Pokemon from past games is present in the list, those from the release of Pokemon Legends Arceus earlier in the year make an appearance.

Given Pokemon games regularly allow for transfers between recent releases and enjoy linking them together, it's a relatively safe bet to assume the leaks are correct. That being said, we'll update this page if they eventually turn out to be false.

We haven't found them in the wild yet but it could come in the future. So far, the only way we know how to get Rowlet is by using the Pokemon Home function.

We already know that save data will get you new Rotom Phone Cases, so there's every chance that name NPC will give you starter that last featured in Pokemon Legends Arceus. If you have save data from that game on your system, that is.

What level does Rowlet evolve?

Rowlet evolves into Dartrix at level 17 and then into Decidueye at level 34. In Hisui, it evolves from Dartrix into Hisuian Decidueye at level 36.

The Pokedex shows the standard Decidueye form, however, so assume the level 34 evolution mechanic is back to stay.
