Bisharp’s new evolution, Kingambit, looks incredible and is worth getting. This guide on How To Evolve Bisharp Into Kingambit In Pokemon Violet & Pokemon Scarlet will explain the evolution process as this one has a mix of two different types of evolution, you need to find an item and then complete a task.
Unfortunately, this is not a task you’re going to be able to complete during the early stages of the game. The Pokemon involved are all in or around the level 50’s and are near the most challenging Team Star base, so it’s not intended to be something you can do early. Once you have Pokemon that are capable of tanking some hits from a level 50, or around that level, you should be able to complete all of the steps required to evolve Bisharp into Kingambit.
How To Evolve Bisharp Into Kingambit In Pokemon Violet & Pokemon Scarlet
With a Bisharp and the held item Leader’s Crest equipped, you then need to repeat the process but this time you do not catch the Bisharp leaders, you want to kill them. I’m not entirely sure how many but I think it’s 10-15, and these MUST BE Bisharp that are leading the small groups of Pawniard. It cannot be a single Bisharp. I tried this technique several times and each time it evolved after a fight with a Bisharp with a Leader’s Crest and it was usually around 10-15, but it wasn’t the same. It’s likely linked to witnessing another Bisharp use an ability or something.
Either way, just keep fighting the leader Bisharp and you will evolve into Kingambit.
This doesn’t work with Auto Battles (RB), you have to directly encounter the Bisharp and kill them.
