How to make Lechonk evolve into Oink Cologne in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Having Lechonk evolve into Oink Cologne in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is down the same path as many other evolutions in the game. You just need to level it up to level 18. At this point, it will start trying to evolve unless you hit B while evolving to cancel. From this point on, you will continue to try to evolve unless you are carrying Everstone.
Whether your Lechonk is male or female, your Oink Cologne will look a little different to the opposite sex. Males have dark skin, drooping ears, and a bulb-like tail. Females are light brown with a short left ear and a triangular tail. We can’t confirm that as of this writing, but we think the shiny version will always be pink, but the tail and ears will be different.
Generally speaking, if you caught a Lechonk at the start of the game and kept them in your deck, you should be close to level 20 with them when you’re about to fight for your third Gym Badge. Of course, the amount of exploration you do, the EXP candies you have, and the amount of battle with Lechonk will all affect how quickly they level up. You can also save this for the end of the game and speed it up by putting it in the back of your party as you defeat much stronger Pokemon.
