Floette evolution guide

Floette’s evolution is a fine fairy, but actually getting your hands on Florges isn’t as simple as just levelling up Floette, you need a very specific stone.

I do believe in fairies, I do. Or, at the very least, I believe in Floette’s evolution. Florges is a formidable Pokémon who makes a solid addition to any team. There’s just one small catch: Floette doesn’t have the traditional level-up evolution method. Not to worry, though, for we’re here to tell you how to evolve Floette, and we even dive into where you can find the necessary item.

While we think fairy Pokémon are great, you might want to check out our Rockruff evolution, Ralts evolution, Bramblin evolution, Dreepy evolution, Bisharp evolution, Scyther evolution, Applin evolution, and Salandit evolution guides to further fill out your team with rock Pokémon, psychic Pokémon, ghost Pokémon, dragon Pokémon, and fire Pokémon, respectively. We also happen to have a fairy Pokémon weakness guide, just in case you need help taking down Floette or Florges.

Anyway, here’s what you need to know about Floette’s evolution.

Who is Floette’s evolution?

Floette evolves into Florges, number 671 in the Pokédex, a pure fairy-type that happens to be one of the most powerful flower Pokémon across the entire series. This ‘mon makes a solid addition to any team; the fact that this gen 6 Pokémon comes in various pretty colors is a bonus.

According to its various Pokédex entries, Florges creates and resides in huge flower gardens, drawing on the flowers for its strength. Not only that but Florges is believed to be able to live over several hundred years, giving it a huge lifespan.

How do I evolve Flabébé?

We’re just going to say it: there’s no point in knowing how to evolve Floette into Florges if you don’t actually have one. So, with that in mind, let’s take a look at how you can catch and evolve a Flabébé, as that’s the most common way to get your hands on Floette.

On Nintendo Switch, this evolution line only appears in Scarlet and Violet, and you can find Flabébé in:

  • South Province – Area One and Area Four
  • East Province – East Paldean Sea
  • West Province – Area One

Once you have a Flabébé, you just need to get it to level 19 for it to evolve into Floette. Unfortunately, it’s not quite that simple when you try to get the final evolution.

How do I evolve Floette?

Once you have a Floette, you can move on to how to evolve it into Florges. If you follow the steps above, you’re all set. However, if you don’t have a Flabébé and would rather catch a Floette, you can find them in the South Province, East Province, and West Province in Scarlet and Violet. Or, more specifically, you can find Floette in:

  • South Province – Area One, Area Four, and Area Six
  • East Province – East Paldean Sea and Area One
  • West Province – Area One
  • North Province – Area One, Area Two, Area Three
  • Area Zero

For now, the gen nine games are the only Switch titles in which you can find this evolution line. Once you have a Floette, you can evolve it into Florges at any level so long as you have a shiny stone at your disposal. Yes, in a similar vein to Shellder’s evolution, Gloom’s evolution, Murkrow’s evolution, and Misdreavus’ evolution, you need a specific evolution stone. Luckily, there are a couple of ways to acquire one in Scarlet and Violet:

  • Pick one up in the wild in Socarrat Trail, South Province Area Six
  • Get one as a reward if you catch 150 different Pokémon
  • Purchase them through the Porto Marinada auction
  • Look for them in the wild throughout Area Zero, Alfornada Cavern, and Dalizapa Passage

How do I catch Florges?

If you want to catch the final stage Pokémon outright instead of going down the evolution route, you can. However, Florges is a hard Pokémon to catch, you will need to use ultra balls if you’re to have any hope of succeeding. In Scarlet and Violet, you can find Florges in:

  • North Province (Area Three)
  • Tera Raid Battles

How do I evolve Floette in Pokémon Go?

Firstly, you need to obtain a Flabébé through the usual catching methods, and then evolve it into Floette with 25 Flabébé candy. However, it’s not quite so simple to get Florges in Pokémon Go. Instead of merely using candy, you need to acquire 20 buddy hearts with Floette as well. Once you have the 20 buddy hearts and 100 candy, you can evolve it into Florges. To get buddy hearts, you can battle with that specific Pokémon, give them attention, visit Pokéstops, and perform other tasks with them as your buddy.

With that, you know all about Floette’s evolution. Now check out our dark Pokémon weakness, psychic Pokémon weakness, steel Pokémon weakness, ice Pokémon weakness, and ghost Pokémon weakness guides to learn how to put the fairy-type to good use. There are many creatures in the Pokédex, so it’s wise to know how to deal with them.
