Rellor evolution - how to get Rabsca

Rellor’s evolution into Rabsca requires a bit more work than you might think, but we can help you to ascend this Pokémon Violet and Scarlet creature.

Rellor’s evolution is quite the step up from the stage one ‘mon, so we can’t help but recommend that you get Rabsca, purely for the fact that the dung beetle sprouts into something truly beautiful. No, we’re not kidding. One look at Rellor, and you might think ‘ew,’ but a glance at Rabsca is bound to have you thinking ‘wow’ – the story of the ugly duckling comes to mind. Anyway, allow us to tell you how to evolve Rellor.

But before we do, perhaps you want to understand how Ralts’ evolution, Bisharp’s evolution, Misdreavus’ evolution, Rockruff’s evolution, Applin’s evolution, Wurmple evolution, Gloom’s evolution, and Salandit’s evolution works. Or, we can tell you how to evolve Riolu, how to evolve Pawmo, how to evolve Primeape, and how to evolve Basculin because not every entry in the Pokédex is as easy to get as gaining a few levels.

Anyway, onto Rellor’s evolution.

Who is Rellor?

Rellor is a Pladea native, coming in at number 953 in the Pokédex. An interesting thing about Rellor is that this bug treasures the mud ball that it pushes around more than its own life. No, we’re not joking, but hey, it’s nice to see a bug love something that much.

How do I evolve Rellor?

You need to walk 1,000 steps while using the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Let’s Go feature and then level it up if you want to evolve Rellor. Yes, it really is that simple. However, the caveat is that the game doesn’t keep track of your steps. Still, for us at PT, it takes roughly five minutes of walking around, so it should be around the same amount of time for you.

To speed up the process, we suggest you have some XP boosts or a rare candy on stand for when you think you’ve hit the 1,000 steps, that way you can level up Rellor immediately.

Where can I find Rellor in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet?

As a gen 9 Pokémon, you can only get Rellor in Scarlet and Violet. More specifically, you can find Rellor in the Asado Desert. Trust us. It’s hard to miss a dung beetle scurrying around with a ball of, well, dung.

Is Rellor in Pokémon Go?

Unfortunately, Rellor isn’t available in Pokémon Go at the time of writing, but should the bug Pokémon pop up, we’ll update this guide with information on how to evolve it in Rabsca in the mobile game, too. Based on other evolutions in Pokémon Go, we suspect it’s likely that you’ll need 50 candy to evolve Rellor.

And that’s all you need to know to evolve Rellor. If you need to know about other evolutions, our how to evolve Finizen, how to evolve Charcadet, how to evolve Sneasel, and how to evolve Togepi guides can help you out.
