Evolving Girafarig in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet requires the Pokémon to learn a certain Move, which happens naturally after a level milestone.
Giraffe-loving Trainers are encouraged to find and catch Girafarig, a Psychic- and Normal-type Long Neck Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet that evolves into Farigiraf once it learns a specific Move. Catching or causing a Girafarig to be faint might yield Girafarig Fur, a crafting resource used for making TM059 Zen Headbutt, TM098 Skill Swap, and TM132 Baton Pass, all three of which can be learned by Girafarig. Girafarig’s stats are decent but nothing special; however, Farigiraf wields notably high HP and SpAtk, which might come in handy for specific Trainer or Tera Raid matchups.
Finding Girafarig is quite easy in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet since the Long Neck Pokémon inhabits only two spots on the Paldean world map. The first location is the West Province (Area Two), which is directly north of the Asado Desert. As a herbivore, Girafarig enjoys grazing along the grassy plateaus east of Porto Marinada. Furthermore, Girafarig is not a rare spawn, so finding this Psychic- and Normal-type pocket monster should be a simple task. However, if Trainers are struggling to encounter this giraffe-esque creature, eating an Ultra Curry-and-Rice-Style Sandwich or Smoky Sandwich will bolster one’s chances of encountering this Long Neck Pokémon.
Girafarig’s Location in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet
The second location where Trainers might encounter Girafarig in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is The Great Crater of Paldea, unlocked in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet’s Postgame, the large gray area at the center of the world map. The Crater, also known as Area Zero, does not become accessible until after players have completed the three main storylines of the game. According to Game8, players can find herds of Girafarigs led by a single Farigiraf within Area Zero. Accordingly, players can catch Farigiraf in this location without the need to evolve Girafarig in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
On the other hand, those who have yet to complete the main questlines of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet‘s main story must opt for evolving Girafarig if they want to get Farigiraf “early.” To trigger Girafarig’s evolution, players must Level Up the Long Neck Pokémon after it has learned the Move Twin Beam. As its name suggests, Twin Beam is a Psychic-type attack that strikes its opponent twice in a row. Unfortunately, as of December 2022, no one has discovered a TM recipe in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet containing the Twin Beam Move. Therefore, the only way for Girafarig to learn Twin Beam is by unlocking it naturally, which occurs when the Pokémon reaches Level 32. Players can level Girafarig efficiently by feeding it EXP Candy, having it participate in Tera Raids, or keeping it in the active party while clearing battles with Wild pocket monsters and Trainers.
