Key Takeaway

Quaxly evolves into Quaxwell when it reaches level 16, and Quaxwell evolves into Quaquaval at level 36. You can’t catch Quaxly, Quaxwell, or Quaquaval in the wild.

When you first start Quaquaval Pokémon Scarlet & Violet, you’re tasked with choosing between Quaxly, Sprigatito, and Fuecoco as your starter Pokémon. If you chose Quaxly, here’s how you can evolve it into Quaxwell and, eventually, Quaquaval.

How to Get Quaxly

When you first start the game, you can choose Quaxly as your starter Pokémon. Unfortunately, Quaxly doesn’t spawn in the Paldea region, so you can’t find it roaming in the wild, so if you choose Quaxly at the beginning of the game, the only other way to get it is to trade Pokémon with a friend.
