It’s safe to say that when it was revealed, Lechonk instantly became one of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s most beloved creatures.
The little black pig was one of the first new Pokemon to be revealed and set Twitter alight with people prepared to lay down their lives for it.
Now the game is finally out, Lechonk and its evolution are sure to be a popular Pokemon in a lot of players’ parties and I’d expect to see it in lots of Champion photos at the end of the game.
So, to help you get the little pig’s next form for your run-through, here’s how to evolve Lechonk into Oinkologne in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
Where to Find Lechonk
Lechonk will be one of the first Pokemon that you stumble across in the new game, however, if somehow you manage to miss it, or want the best locations to shiny hunt it, use the map below:

Thankfully, there is no special method for evolving Lechonk in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet and it will evolve nice and early.
Lechonk will evolve into an Oinkologne at level 18, so all players will need to do is battle a handful of Pokemon and the hog Pokemon will be yours.
Using Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s new auto-battling feature will also help as players can send off their Lechonk while performing other tasks to help it level up!
Oinkologne has two different looks, depending on whether the Pokemon is male or female, with the male sporting a more emo look and the female rocking some yellow eyeliner and a three-pronged tail. Make sure you know which one you want before evolving your little Lechonk!
If you’re looking to skip a step, however, Oinkologne can be found in the wild in plenty of locations.
You can find them all in the map below:
