Ceruledge and Armarouge are two of the most anticipated Pokemon in Scarlet & Violet. Here is how trainers can catch their pre-evolution Charcadet and what they need to do to evolve it.
During a Pokemon Scarlet & Violet trailer shown in September 2022, TPCi debuted Ceruledge and Armarouge, two humanoid Pokemon the community instantly fell in love with. And it was also revealed each one would be a version exclusive.
Ceruledge – the purple Fire Blades Pokemon – is exclusive to Pokemon Violet, while Armarouge – red Fire Warrior Pokemon – can be obtained in Pokemon Scarlet. Their Fire/Ghost and Fire/Psychic typings make them forces to be reckoned with, along with their pre-evolution.
Charcadet is the pre-evo to Ceruledge and Armarouge, and this feisty fighter can be challenging to track down. But no worries, this guide will show you where you can find Charcadet and what steps you need to take to evolve it.
Charcadet is found in most regions of Paldea, including the South, East, and West Provinces, except some regions within each Province. However, the tiny flaming warrior is very rarely seen.
This is because Charcadet spawns as a solo Pokemon at random locations. Unlike Pawmi, Tarountula, and Lechonk; you won’t see more than one Charcadet at a given time. We’ve found that the easiest way to find Charcadet is by searching West Province (Area One).
Armarouge can’t be found in the wild in Pokemon Violet, and evolving Charcadet takes more than just grinding levels. After you catch a Charcadte, you’ll want to head to the city of Zapipico. Here you will find an NPC with a pink plaid shirt standing next to a small water fountain, and he will have an orange dialogue bubble above his head that reads, “Fancy a trade?”
He will explain he wants to trade you an auspicious item in exchange for 10 Bronzor Fragments. You can collect Bronzor Fragments by defeating them in battle. Once you’ve gathered enough, return to the man and trade your fragments for the Auspicious Armor.
Give the Auspicious Armor to your Charcadet, and it will evolve into an Armarouge.
The first few steps are identical to the ones listed above. Find the NPC in Zapipico who is offering players a trade. However, he will ask you for 10 Sinistea Fragments in exchange for Malicious Armor. These fragments are earned by defeating Sinistea in battle.
Give your Charcadet the Malicious Armor, which will evolve into the Fire Blade Pokemon Ceruledge.
