Among the wide array of Pokémon featured in both Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, very few are as rare and tricky to catch as the normal-type Slakoth. But where can you find and how can you catch a Slakoth in the games? Now, in order to answer that and more, here’s where and how to catch a Slakoth in both Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
Where to Catch Slakoth in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Differently from most Pokémon in the game, Slakoth will not be visible as you explore, as they will be out of sight at the top of the trees. With that said, Slakoth can only be found in trees in the southwest portion of Paldea. In our case, we were able to find a Slakoth at the top of a tree in the swamp located in South Province (Area Five), which can be accessed by going up a cliff right by the area’s Pokémon Center.
It’s important to point out that, although you can get Pokémon out of trees in both Scarlet and Violet by either running toward the tree with Koraidon or driving towards it with Miraidon, you will only know which Pokémon was there the moment they reach the ground, so it may take a few tries until you manage to get a Slakoth.
