Pokemon Sword and Shield – How To Evolve Dottler Into Orbeetle

How to get the final form of the early bug Pokemon.

by Dean James


Blipbug is one of the first Pokemon you should come across in Pokemon Sword and Shield, though it seems pretty weak at the start. Things really start to escalate with its first evolution to Dottler, where it obtains a dual typing of Bug/Psychic and learns Confusion instantly. Dottler gets stronger as it grows, but it still has one more form to go. This guide will detail how you can get Dottler to evolve to Blipbug’s final evolution.

How To Evolve Dottler Into Orbeetle

After Blipbug evolved into Dottler as level 10, you have a ways to go before you’re going to get it to evolve again. You do not have to worry about doing anything too special, but keep working on leveling Dottler up. Eventually when your Dottler reaches level 30, it will evolve into its final form named Orbeetle.

Orbeetle does not get any new moves upon evolving, but Orbeetle could have learned a lot more moves at lower levels, which doesn’t work unless caught at the lower level. That means you have to visit the Move Reminder to pick up some missed moves that you’re going to really want. This includes the Bug type Bug Buzz move and other Psychic Moves like Psybeam and Hypnosis if you so choose. Most Pokemon do not have this many extra moves to pick up from the Move Reminder after evolution, but Orbeetle does.
