How To Get Galarian Yamask

Galarian Yamask can be found along Route 6. It can also be found in Max Raid Battles at Bridge Field, Dusty Bowl, Giant's Mirror, Rolling Fields, Stony Wilderness, Watchtower Ruins.



Dusty Bowl

You are going to want to take your Yamask to the Dusty Bowl subsection of the Wild Area this is one of the desert biomes in the area and can be easily seen. 

Once there, engage with some wild Pokemon and let your Yamask take 49 points of damage. As long as it is more than 49 damage it is okay just not less than 49. After, make your Yamask your party leader and run under the stone-arch you can see in the Dusty Bowl area. And boom, your Yamask will evolve into Runerigus.

How To Get Unovan Yamask & Cofagrigus

Unovan Yamask can be obtained from trading a Galarian Yamask to the child in an Eevee outfit at the Ballonlea gym. Unovan Yamask evolves at level 34 and the Yamask you will receive is level 36 and will only need to level up once to evolve into Cofagrigus.
