Hyperdrill

Dunsparce will not evolve like a traditional Pokémon. Instead, you must level Dunsparce to level 32 until it learns the move, Hyper Drill. After learning Hyper Drill, your Dunsparce will evolve into the second segment form of Dudunsparce.

Note: if you accidentally tell your Dunsparce not to learn Hyper Drill, you can use the Remember the Move function.
