After a few hours and a bit of training, you’ll get the second form for Sprigatito in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Unlike the other two starters, Floragato isn’t awkward looking, instead improving upon that original design. This new evolution can adjust the hardness of its fur on a whim and uses a whip-like weapon in battle. Despite that cute face, this is one feline you won’t want to mess with.

When Does Sprigatito Evolve into Floragato?

Once players hit level 16 with Sprigatito, they’ll get the Floragato evolution. You’ll keep this form of the Grass Cat Pokemon until level 36, at which point you’ll evolve it once again to get Meowscarada. Unlike the second evolution, Meowscarada is a Grass/Dark type with a move all its own. After it evolves to this form, you can learn Flower Trick, a move that always hits. It will almost always hit with a crit as well, only failing to do so if the target has Battle or Shell Armor.

While the final evolution for Sprigatito is pretty impressive, it’s still lovely to look back on the second form. Make sure to take a few good pictures before this Pokemon evolves so that you can remember your journey!
