You better give a hoot about this; it’s time to discover how to get Rowlet in Pokemon Legends: Arceus!

As one of the Starters in Pokemon Legends: Arceus, you’d be forgiven for thinking that you might not have the opportunity to catch cute, owl-like Pocket Monster Rowlet again.

However, Pokemon Legends: Arceus does give you the opportunity to find and catch the two Starter Pokemon that you didn’t choose at the beginning…

… but they can be quite elusive!

Don’t worry; we’re here to help though. Come with us as we guide you to where you can find Rowlet during your adventure across Ancient Sinnoh.

Where To Find Rowlet?

How To Get Rowlet In Pokemon Legends Arceus - Rowlett in the wild

Much like the other Starters, you won’t find Rowlet simply wandering around the ‘normal’ areas of the game.

You will be able to find it in Space-Time Distortions however. And, they’re surprisingly common, with quite a few locations to find them within the Coronet Highlands.

Head into a Space-Time Distortion in the Coronet Highlands in one of these locations: Bolderoll Ravine, Celestica Ruins, Celestica Trail, Sacred Plaza or Stonetooth Rolls.

Plus, you’ll almost certainly stumble upon a Rowlet, as their spawn rate is pretty high.

Rowlet’s evolved forms – the Dartrix and Hisuian Decidueye also hang out in the exact same locations. Still, the spawn rates are rarer for the Dartrix and even more so for the Hisuian Decidueye.

Is There Any Other Way To Find Rowlet?

Thankfully, yes – and you don’t even have to worry about Rowlet or its evolved forms spawning for you in a specific place!

Once you finish the game’s main story, head back to Professor Laventon and he’ll give you both of the Starters you didn’t choose at the very beginning of the game.

How to Evolve Rowlet in Pokemon Legends: Arceus?

To evolve Rowlet into Dartrix, all you’ll need to do is train it to level 17. To transform your Dartrix into a Hisuian Decidueye, it’s similarly straightforward – just get your Dartrix to level 34.

So that’s all of the information you need in order to get yourself a Rowlet and both of its evolved forms.

Even if you chose a different Pokemon at the start of your adventure, we’ve still got you covered!

We have numerous guides on catching and evolving elusive Pokemon here on Retro Dodo, so stick around and check those out if you’re getting stuck. Here’s a handy list of links to our rapidly-growing collection of evolution guides for Pokemon Legends: Arceus including: 

Good luck on your quest to catch ‘em all!
