How to Evolve Cetoddle into Cetitan in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

The small ice Pokemon becomes a total powerhouse.

by Elliott Gatica

If you have seen pre-release footage from trailers of Scarlet and Violet, you may have seen the big new ice Pokemon, Cetitan. This is actually the evolved form of Cetoddle. When you’re venturing the Paldea region, you’re most likely going to get its pre-evolution first, eventually having to evolve it into this giant hunk of icy fury. So, how do you evolve Cetoddle into Cetitan in Scarlet and Violet? Check out below.

How to Evolve Cetoddle into Cetitan

Cetoddle evolves into Cetitan by using an Ice Stone on it. This is a fairly new item introduced back in Sun and Moon when Alolan Pokemon were introduced. The Ice Stone is another elemental evolution stone that is used to evolve Alolan Sandshrew, Alolan Vulpix, Eevee, and Galarian Darumaka into their respective ice-type evolutions.


Now, this item will have its use to turn Cetoddle into Cetitan. You may not want to use it on the very first one you get. Evolution stones aren’t easy to come by in the early game, so you have to know the risk of using them. Unless you’re not looking to get a perfect IV version of Cetoddle and this is for Pokedex purposes, by all means, go ahead.

Cetitan is definitely going to be one of the stronger Pokemon to use in higher-level play. With such large health and attack stats, this powerhouse will be a force to be reckoned with. It’s not slow by any means either, so while it can tank, it can also be devastating.

Cetitan Abilities in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

Its abilities will also make this a very viable pick for the endgame. Thick Fat will make it more resistant to fire types. Slush Rush is basically the ice equivalent of Swift Swim, making it good to use Hail.

The best ability might be Sheer Force. With Attack being its second-highest stat, the removal of secondary effects for additional damage on moves can make this Pokemon extremely powerful.

If you need a strong Ice-type Pokemon in your party, that Ice Stone will definitely be handy if you get your hands on a Cetoddle!

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are available now exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
