How to evolve Type: Null & get Silvally in Pokemon Sword and Shield

You can evolve Type: Null into Silvally by increasing its friendship level in Pokemon Sword and Shield. It becomes ready for evolution when its Friendship value is 220 or higher.

There are several ways to increase your friendship level with a Pokemon in the game:

  • Pokemon Camp – Play with your party and cook curry for your Pokemon to quickly increase their affection towards you. Focus on making curries that significantly boost friendship levels.
  • Berries – Qualot, Tamato, Pomeg, Grepa, Hondew, and Kelpsy berries increase the Friendliness of a Pokemon upon consumption. However, some of these berries deteriorate other stats of the Pokemon like HP.
  • Battle – Using a Pokemon during battle will increase its friendship level.
  • Soothe Bell – A Pokemon holding a Soothe Bell instantly gains Friendliness. Giving this item to your Type: Null will certainly help in speeding up the evolution process.

All in all, head to the Battle Tower in Wyndon to find Type: Null in Pokemon Sword and Shield. Then, just increase your Friendliness with the Pokemon to evolve it into Silvally.
