Where can I find Finizen in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet?

Fortunately, you will come across Finizen quite often when traveling through Paldea. As a water-type Pokémon, it lives in the sea and can be found in virtually every part of the ocean surrounding the region.

You’ll have the easiest time catching a Finizen once you’ve unlocked the ability to ride Koraidon or Miraidon on the water, but you might get lucky and find one close enough to shore to take it into battle to involve. Also, Finiz sometimes appears in raid battles.

How do I evolve Finizen to Palafin?

While finding a Finiz is fairly easy, evolving into a Palafin is a bit more complicated. First, you must join a Union Circle with at least one other player. Then level up your Finiz to level 38 or higher. This should trigger your Finiz to evolve.

At first, you may fear that you messed up, as Finizen and Palafin are very similar until Palafin switches to his hero form, which he only does in battle. As long as you followed these steps, your evolution will be successful!
