While one of the most exciting parts of a new Pokemon game is to see the latest additions to the Pokedex, it is also great to see returning faces from the long-running series. Sometimes, these two aspects of the game come together as old Pokemon receive brand new evolutions. One such example is Stantler, a normal-type introduced in Generation II. Before, this Pokemon could not evolve, but Pokemon Legends: Arceus now allows Stantler to evolve into Wyrdeer. With the Pokemon being new, many players will want to know how to get the deer-like Pokemon to evolve. This guide will explain how to evolve Stantler into Wyrdeer in Pokemon Legends: Arceus.
How To Evolve Stantler In Pokemon Legends: Arceus
Unlike other Pokemon that require you to simply get your Friendship with them to a certain level or to get them to a specific level, Stantler requires a different process to evolve. After catching the Stantler, you will need to use the Psychic Bash move in the Agile Style a total of 20 times. This move is Stantler’s signature move and can be learned at level 21. To understand the Agile Style of the move, you will need to level up your Stantler 10 levels after learning the move. This means that you will need to get your Stantler to level 31 or catch a Stantler at or above level 31. With the Psychic Bash and the Agile Style unlocked, head out into the world and use the move 20 times to complete the evolution requirements for Stantler.
Once you do this, you will be given the prompt to evolve your Stantler. When a Pokemon is ready to evolve, the Pokeball icon next to their name in the menu will be glowing yellow. Press the X button on your Stantler with the glowing yellow icon to have it evolve into a Wyrdeer.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus is available now on Nintendo Switch.
