Where to find Wattrel in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

How to catch Wattrel in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

There are several different locations where you can find Wattrel, but you’ll want to mainly keep an eye out around the coastlines. Despite this Pokémon not having a Water-typing, they prefer to live near the ocean. Wattrel’s Pokédex entry states that the Wattrel will more likely be found flying over the sea during the day. As such, you’ll want to head out onto the water if you can manage it. Alternatively, it is possible to find the Wattrel over land, even inland, around East Province (Area Two). Wattrel may also appear as a Raid creature if you’re lucky enough.

You can find Wattrel if you’re surfing the waves, and they’re shown to be around mostly the entire southern, western, and eastern parts of the map but limited strictly to the coastal edges and the water of Paldea. You will not encounter them around the northern part of Paldea at all, so it’s probably best if you try to catch Wattrel while you’re heading towards the city of Levincia or once you’ve obtained the ability to traverse water without drowning.

If you’re trying to catch Wattrel, remember that you’ll be fighting a Flying-type and an Electric-type Pokémon. This means that facing it with certain moves, such as Ground-type moves, will do no damage at all. If you hit a Wattrel with a Rock-type move, you do run the risk of one-shotting it, and you’ll lose your chance to capture it. You can capture this Pokémon quite easily, and a Great Ball should be more than sufficient.
