Pawmi, Pawmo and Pawmot are brand new additions to the Pokédex in Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet. You will be able to discover and catch Pawmi and Pawmot in plentiful areas across the Paldea region, and, as you set out to complete the region’s Pokédex, you will want to know how to evolve the Mouse Pokémon into Pawmot.
Where To Catch Pawmo
You will likely have caught Pawmi early on in your adventure, but, if not, you are able to catch Pawmo as the middle evolution in this species to save some time. The Mouse Pokémon is a regular spawn across the entirety of the Paldea region, as you can see in the screenshot below. It can often be found protecting groups of Pawmi in later areas:
How To Evolve Pawmo Into Pawmot
The method of evolving Pawmo into Pawmot isn’t particularly obvious. You will need to use the game’s “Let’s Go!” feature, which allows the Lead Pokémon in your party to walk around alongside you.
After opening the in-game menu (X Button), you can use the Y Button to select Pawmo as the Lead Pokémon in your party. Once you have done so, you can press the R Button to make Pawmo run off in the direction that you are facing or the ZR Button for it to simply walk alongside you.
You will need to walk 1,000 steps with Pawmo for it to be able to evolve into Pawmot, the bad news being that there isn’t any real way to track this in-game. This can be done anywhere in the game, although a low-level area will let you easily deal with any Wild Pokémon that interrupt you.
After you estimate that you have walked 1,000 steps, level up Pawmo further and, if the milestone has been hit, it will evolve into Pawmot.
Where To Catch Pawmot
If you aren’t necessarily bothered about evolving Pawmo and simply want to add Pawmot’s tome to your Pokédex, you may be looking to catch the Pokémon in the wild. Unfortunately, the Pokédex lists that the Hands-On Pokémon’s habitat is unknown, meaning that the only known route is to evolve Pawmo. Luckily, now that you know what you need to do that process shouldn’t take you too long at least.
