Where to find Pineco in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Pineco is one of the many pokémon from a previous generation that makes an appearance in Scarlet and Violet. This pinecone-looking pokémon comes from Gen II and can be found in a decent number of areas in the Paldea region. Despite the many areas that this pokémon can spawn, you may have a very hard time locating one. This is because Pineco is a pretty rare spawn and they are hard to spot.

As you can tell by Pineco’s habitat map, you can find this pokémon in various areas across the map, with most spawn locations being on the eastern side. One of the easiest locations to find Pineco is in the trees near Medali. Pineco like to hang from tree branches which makes them hard to spot because they blend in. The pokémon will fall from the tree if it is shaken. If you want to locate Pineco, hit all the trees in an area and you may have one fall on you.
