How To Get Oshawott In Pokemon Legends: Arceus

Oshawhat? It’s time to explain all as we discover how to get Oshawatt in Pokemon Legends: Arceus.

Though the easiest way to get yourself an Oshawott in Pokemon Legends: Arceus is simply to choose it as your Starter, what happens if you chose Cyndaquil or Rowlet?

Are you completely out of luck unless you happen to be able to trade with another player, like in other Pokemon games?

Thankfully, Pokemon Legends: Arceus isn’t like other Pokemon games in many ways.

And the availability of the other Starter Pokemon within the game’s world is one thing that sets it apart! They aren’t necessarily easy to find, but they are there – and we’re here to help you track them down!

Where To Find Oshawott In Pokemon Legends: Arceus?

How to Get Oshawott in Pokemon Legends: Arceus - Oshawott in the wild

Oshawott can be found in Space-Time Distortions that spawn in the Alabaster Icelands. You’ll be able to get yourself an Oshawott in one of three locations in the Alabaster Icelands: Arena’s Approach, Bonechill Wastes and Heart’s Crag.

Oshawott spawn rates are pretty common, but if you’re lucky you might also find yourself a rare evolved form of Oshawott – the Dewott. Rarer still is the fully evolved form: the Hisuian Samurott. All three hang out in the same three Space-Time Distortion areas in the Alabaster Icelands.

Is There Any Other Way To Find Oshawott?

There is! You’ll have to wait until you complete the main game though: return to Professor Laventon once you’ve completed the story and he’ll reward you with both of the Starters you didn’t choose at the beginning!

How to Evolve Oshawott in Pokemon Legends: Arceus?

It’s actually incredibly straightforward to evolve Oshawott – simply train it to Level 17 and it’ll evolve into Dewott.

Train Dewott to Level 36 and it’ll evolve into Hisuian Samurott – it’s as simple as it gets in evolution terms.

So there you have it – you should now be fully armed with all of the information you need to find and evolve your very own Oshawott, even if you didn’t choose it as a Starter!
