Tadbulb location in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Tadbulb, and its evolved form Bellibolt, are gen XI pokémon that are making their first appearance in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. While Bellibolt won’t appear until later in the game, you can actually get Tadbulb pretty early on. Tadbulb can appear in many different places around the map and you can obtain them shortly after completing the tutorial.

If you look at Tadbulb’s habitat information, you will see that it can appear in every section of the map so no matter if you are in the north or south, you will be able to find this pokémon. Tadbulb likes to live around wetlands, rivers, and other bodies of water, making it easy to locate when traveling the different regions. One of the earliest locations this pokémon can be found is in South Province Area One which is around where your character’s home is.

Just like other pokémon, you will need to battle Tadbulb in the wild if you want to get Tadbulb Mucus. You can also gather this material from Bellibolt later in the game. Each time you defeat or capture a Tadbulb or Bellibolt, you will get up to three Tadbulb Mucus to add to your collection of materials. You can use Tadbulb Mucus to create TMs at a TM Machine as long as you have unlocked recipes that require the ingredient.
