Here’s how to get an Armarouge or Ceruledge in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet after you’ve obtained a Charcadet across Paldea.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet introduced players to a ton of new Pokemon in the Paldea region. Along with new Pokemon, trainers are looking to discover the unique evolution requirements for certain creatures.

Armarouge and Ceruledge are two version-exclusive Pokemon that look to be popular additions in Scarlet and Violet. In order to obtain them, their pre-evolution requires a special item.

Here’s how to get that item and obtain Armarouge and Ceruledge in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet.

The first step in getting Armarouge or Ceruledge in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is to catch a Charcadet. Luckily, Charcadets are quite common across the Paldea region and can be found in the orange locations seen on the map above.

While it lives in many parts of Paldea, Charcadet’s Pokedex entry specifies that it’s very rarely seen, so you may have to do some searching to find it. To spot it, keep an eye out for its tiny red flams in the overworld.

Now that you’ve caught a Charcadet the next step is to obtain the Auspicious Armor (Scarlet) or Malicious Armor (Violet). As you may have already guessed, Armarouge is exclusive to Scarlet, while Ceruledge is exclusive to Violet.

To obtain these items you’ll have to trade with the man seen in the image above. He’s demanding 10 Bronzor Fragments in Scarlet or 10 Sinistea Chips in Violet. Once you’ve collected these 10 items, head to Zapicico.

  1. Catch Charcadet
  2. Obtain 10 Bronzor Fragments or Sinistea Chips
  3. Trade the above items with NPC in Zapicico to get an Auspicious Armor or Malicious Armor
  4. Give Auspicious Armor or Malicious Armor to Charcadet

You can obtain Bronzor Fragments and Sinistea Chips by catching or defeating any Pokemon from their respective evolution lines.

There’s no limit to how many Auspicious Armor and Malicious Armor you can trade for. Once obtained, you’ll have to give it to Charcadet who will then evolve into either Armarouge or Ceruledge.
