Does Tinkatink evolve in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet?

So you just ran into a tiny Tinkatink and you're wondering whether it's worth the time and effort. The answer to that is yes.

Tinkatink evolves twice. First into Tinkatuff at level 24, and again into Tinkaton at level 38.

Its typing as a Fairy/Steel Pokemon is hardly unique, pairing it with Mawile and even Zacian. That means it neutralises Fairy's typical Steel weakness, making it only weak to Fire and Ground.

How to get a Tinkatink in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

In order to get a Tinkatink in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, you'll have to either catch one, or trade for it. If you're looking to catch your own, then there's a few ways to go about it. First off, you can just find one in the world.

There are a few spawn locations across the map for Tinkatink, but the quickest ones to get to are immediately east and west of Mesagoza.

If you head into the marked areas in the picture above and you don't see any Tinkatink, you can leave the area and go back in to reset the spawns. Going into the menu and starting a picnic has the same effect, which is an integral part of learning how to farm shiny Pokemon in Scarlet and Violet as well.

The distance is generally getting the area out of render distance. You may also get lucky and find Tinkatuff surrounded by a pack of Tinkatuff.

The other way that you can find one of these Pokes is via Tera raids. Whether you happen to find one of your own in the world, or leverage the queue system in the Poke Portal, Tera raids can be a solid way to snag a quick Tinkatink.

And that's all we have for you. While you're here, why not check out some of our other Pokemon Scarlet and Violet guides, such as our Titan Pokemon catch guide, our character customization guide, and why not also check out our guide to finding the Dragon Titan in the Path of Legends
