Wondering which Pokémon can evolve with the Malicious Armor in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet? Here's what you need to know.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet features a number of items which allow certain Pokémon across the Paldea region to evolve. While plenty of Pokémon will still evolve once they reach a certain level, some need an extra helping hand. Items, such as the Malicious Armor, are the missing piece of the puzzle.

But it can be tricky to work out which Pokémon needs what item. Here's every Pokémon that will evolve once exposed to Malicious Armor in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

Which Pokémon Evolve with Malicious Armor in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet?

The Malicious Armor only serves a purpose in Pokémon Violet. Its Scarlet counterpart is the Auspicious Armor.

The Malicious Armor is used for only one Pokémon — Charcadet. Charcadet evolves into Armarouge with the help of the Auspicious Armor. But in Violet, it evolves into Ceruledge thanks to the Malicious Armor.

If you own Pokémon Scarlet, you'll need to trade with a friend who owns Violet, either trading Ceruledge outright or handing over some Malicious Armor.
