Kricketot is only found in one single area in the whole of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. You’ll have to head there if you want to catch our tiny musical bug or hope you get them as a Raid encounter. The Kricketot is found shortly after the beginning phases of the game, once you’re given free rein in the world of Paldea. For those of you looking to complete your Pokédex, you’ll want to grab this guy before you venture too far away from its home turf. You’ll not get many chances later down the line, and you’ll be hard-pressed to capture it without accidentally making it faint with higher-level Pokémon.

Kricketot is only found on the west side of Mesagoza. You’ll want to take the Western Gate, and you’ll find the Kricketot wandering in the orchards outside of the town of Cortondo. They may wander between the clusters of Combee as well or by themselves. They will meander about here, between the trees, and if you’re not too careful, you might miss them because of their small size. The Kricketot is a bright red Bug-type Pokémon with a cheerful yellow collar and long black antenna. They’re small and unassuming, but they’ll pack one heck of a punch once they evolve.

To catch the Kricketot, you need to be mindful of its type match-ups. As Kricketot is a Bug-type Pokémon, that means you’ll want to avoid attacking it with Fire-type, Flying-type, or Rock-type moves as you’ll do immense damage that can possibly one-hit it. Additionally, if you’re fighting the Kricketot with a low-level Pokémon, avoid using Grass, Psychic, or Dark-type Pokémon, as they’ll do a ton of damage and cause your Pokémon to possibly faint.
