Rufflet is a Normal and Flying-type Pokemon that first debuted in Generation V of the beloved franchise and once again appears in Pokemon Legends: Arceus. Just like several other Pokemon in the series’ latest entry, Rufflet’s evolution, Braviary, has received a brand new version unique to Hisui. With an all-new version of a Pokemon, players will want to know how to get their Rufflet to evolve. This guide will explain how to evolve Rufflet into Braviary in Pokemon Legends: Arceus.
How To Evolve Rufflet In Pokemon Legends: Arceus
To evolve Rufflet into Braviary, players will simply need to get the Pokemon to a certain level, with no need for any items or moves that need to be used a certain number of times like some of the other Pokemon found in the game. This is evolution, and the level required to evolve your Rufflet is also the same as other games. The difference between past incarnations of the Pokemon and the one found in Pokemon Legends: Arceus is that the evolution will result in an all-new version of Hisuian Braviary unique to the game’s region. You will need to get your Rufflet to level 54. Before you start to look to evolve a Rufflet, you will need to catch one. You can find Rufflet at the Alabaster Icelands at both the Lake Acuity and Heart’s Crag.
Once you get your Rufflet to level 54, you will be given the prompt to evolve your Pokemon. When a Pokemon is ready to evolve, the Pokeball icon next to their name in the menu is glowing yellow. Unlike other entries in the series, you will need to evolve the Pokemon manually. Simply scroll over to the Pokemon in question and press the X button to have it evolve and grow stronger. Doing so will evolve your Rufflet into a Hisuian Braviary in Pokemon Legends: Arceus.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus is available now on Nintendo Switch.
