Pokémon Sword and Shield: How to Evolve Linoone into No. 33 Obstagoon

Need some quick help evolving Linoone into Obstagoon?


Pokémon Sword and Shield may not have the entire National Dex at its disposal, but there are still 72 Pokémon that don’t simply evolve at a certain level. With Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, a few evolution methods have been altered from previous games, and, of course, there are some new Pokémon to evolve through increasingly peculiar and specific ways.

Here, you’ll find out where to find Linoone, its pre-evolution, Zigzagoon, and how to evolve Linoone into Obstagoon.


Where to find Zigzagoon and Linoone in Pokémon Sword and Shield

In Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, Zigzagoon looks distinctly different to its first appearance in Generation III (Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald), now sporting black and white fur with a big pink wagging tongue.

Due to this, the Pokémon is often called Galarian Zigzagoon. This form of Zigzagoon that’s native to the Galar region has learned how to evolve twice instead of just once, unlocking a powerful third tier that the Hoenn form of Zigzagoon cannot reach.

The dark-normal type Pokémon isn’t difficult to find, being fairly abundant on Route 2, Route 3, and in the Wild Area at Giant’s Cap, Bridge Field, and often Stony Wilderness. If you’re strong enough, you could always skip levelling-up a Galarian Zigzagoon and instead catch its evolution, Galarian Linoone, in the Wild Area at Giant’s Cap or Bridge Field.

How to evolve Linoone into Obstagoon in Pokémon Sword and Shield

For Galarian Zigzagoon to evolve into Galarain Linoone, you simply have to train it until it hits level 20 or level it up once more beyond level 20.

Once you have Galarian Linoone, it can evolve from level 35 onwards. However, this isn’t an ordinary evolution.

To trigger the transformation of Linoone into Obstagoon, you must make sure that it levels up at night. If your Linoone hits level 35 in the daytime, it will not evolve. However, you can continue to level it up, and once you happen to do so at night time, it will evolve into Obstagoon.

There you have it: your Linoone just evolved into an Obstagoon. You now have a rather powerful dark-normal type Pokémon that specialises in physical attacks, defence, and boasts a decent amount of speed.
