Rockruff is a returning pokémon from previous games in the series that can be found in multiple places across the Paldea region. This adorable pokémon isn’t afraid to get up close and personal with you if you are spotted out in the wild so keep an eye out for any charging pups as you search for them. You can find Rockruff relatively early in the game, shortly after you complete the tutorial.

According to Rockruff’s habitat log, this pokémon likes to live in mountainous areas which make up a decent portion of the southern and western portions of the Paldea region. You can mostly find this Rockruff spawning in these locations during the day with far less of them spawning at night. When you run into it, Rockruff should be around level 20 so make sure your pokémon are leveled appropriately.
