How to Evolve Graveler in Pokemon Legends Arceus

There are a number of evolutions players can make in Pokemon Legends Arceus that require certain items or events to complete. One of these Pokemon is Graveler. Graveler is originally from Generation 1 and has a long history of being a trade-triggered evolution. Given the more single-player focus of Pokemon Legends of Arceus you can evolve it solo. To learn how to evolve Graveler in Pokemon Legends Arceus consult the guide below.

Solo Method: Use the Linking Cord

To evolve Graveler you need to acquire a special item called the Linking Cord. This item comes from Simona, the Trading Post proprietor. Speak to Simona in Jubilife Village and ask to purchase an item. Select the Linking Cord and by it for 1,000 Merit Points.

Once you have the Linking Cord give it to Graveler. When this item is held by Graveler you can evolve it into Golem, it’s final evolution form. This uses the Linking Cord up, so keep that in mind before you use it.

Multiplayer Method: Trade Between a Friend

The solo method is a nod to the classic method of evolution triggered by trading. This method is still in the game, but does require the involvement of a second player. You can access trading also through Simona. Speak to her and select the I want to trade Pokemon option. This allows you to trade locally or via the internet. Trade your Graveler to someone you know to trigger its evolution, then have them send it back.
