How to catch Houndour in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet’s Pokédex isn’t that generous regarding details about Houndour’s location. On the map below, you can see that Houndour can be found either next to the Paco Path Lighthouse or in Area Four. What the Pokédex doesn’t specify is that you will likely not find Houndour on the plains of Palea. Instead, you will find them in caves.

A simple way to find Houndour in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is to head to the back of the Paco Path Lighthouse from the prologue and jump down to the beach where you first found Koraidon or Miraidon. Go into the cave where your legendary Pokémon fought a lot of Houndour. This is the perfect place to find this Pokémon, as it can be found in this location at any point in time. It is their spawning ground.

If you have already advanced a bit in the story and the game, all you have to do to catch Houndour in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is to throw a Pokéball at it. In this cave, it will most likely have level 5. Due to its low level, you can easily capture it without hurting it beforehand.
