The dual Dark and Flying-type Pokémon Murkrow was introduced in Generation II and make a return appearance in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. You will be able to discover and catch one in a handful of areas in the Hisui region, but as you set out to complete the region’s first-ever Pokédex you will want to know how to evolve the Darkness Pokémon into Honchkrow.
Where To Catch Murkrow
Before you will need to know how to evolve Murkrow into Honchkrow, you may want to know where to catch Murkrow in the wild. It’s worth mentioning straight away that the Darkness Pokémon will fittingly only appear after Nightfall, so make sure that you rest at a base camp to pass the time “until nightfall” if you need to.
The areas that you will want to start hunting for Murkrow are Cloudpool Ridge in Crimson Mirelands or at Crossing Slope, Hideaway Bay, Islespy Shore or Veilstone Cape in Cobalt Coastlands. It’s clear that there is a greater chance to find them in Cobalt Coastlands, so that’s where we went – where we immediately found two flying around at Hideaway Bay.
How To Evolve Murkrow Into Honchkrow
You will need to use a Dusk Stone to evolve Murkrow into Honchkrow. These can be found as a rare item drop in Space-Time Distortions or, for those with less patience, can be purchased by exchanging Merit Points (MP) with Simona at her stall on Floaro Main Street in Jubilife Village.
The Dusk Stone will cost you 1,200 MP, and is described as “a peculiar stone that can make certain species of Pokémon evolve. It holds shadows as dark as can be.”
Where To Catch Honchkrow
If you aren’t necessarily bothered about evolving Murkrow and simply want to complete your Pokédex, it’s worth us pointing out that you can actually catch Honchkrow in the wild, too. The Big Boss Pokémon’s spawn locations are listed in the Pokédex as either at Bathers’ Lagoon in Cobalt Coastlands or at Cloudpool Ridge in Crimson Mirelands. Once again, it will only appear after nightfall.
