Blipbug's evolution, location and stats are uniform across both Pokémon Sword and Shield, released Friday. The larva Pokémon is described in the Pokédex as collecting information and using the hairs on its body to assess its surroundings. Here's what you need to know about it.
Blipbug Evolution: Pokémon Sword & Shield
Blipbug is the first Pokémon in its evolution chain. At level 10, the Bug-Type Blipbug can evolve into the Bug- and Psychic-Type Dottler. At level 30, Dottler can evolve again into Orbeetle.

So far, players have reported sightings of Blipbugs along Routes 1 and 2, in the Slumbering Weald, and in Giant's Cap. As time goes on, players may discover the Pokémon in further locations.
