We've put together a short guide on how trainers can evolve their Mantyke into a Mantine in Pokemon Legends: Arceus.
Mantyke's method of evolution is strange—even by Pokemon standards. To date, only one other Pokemon has a method that requires trainers to think ahead about their team composition when battling and leveling with it. This makes Mantyke both one of the more adorable Pokemon available and one of the rarest species evolution-wise.
It makes sense that trainers might be a bit confused about how it all works. Never fear—that's where we come in. Here's how to evolve Mantyke into Mantine in Pokmon Legends: Arceus.
How to Evolve Mantyke into Mantine
Mantyke will evolve into Mantine when leveled up with a Remoraid also in the party. The two don't necessarily need to be next to each other or anything similar. As long as they're in the same party, Mantyke should evolve the same way.
Mantyke and Remoraid can usually be found swimming in the same locations as their PokeDex descriptions are intricately linked. However, in Pokemon Legends: Arceus, the two can only be encountered together in Tranquility Cove. Otherwise, Mantyke can be found in the Cobalt Coastlands off the coast of Ginkgo Landing while Remoriad appears near Castaway Shore and Sand's Reach.
Also known as the "Kite" Pokemon, Mantyke is a fairly fast swimmer despite its round appearance and lack of aerodynamic design. It often pairs up with schools of Remoraid and helps them to both hunt and defend themselves from predators. Its Hisuian PokeDex number is #164.
Mantine is as passive as they come, allowing Remoraid to swim beneath and attach themselves to the undersides of its massive, broad fins, to scavenge scraps from its meals. It is known as an elegant swimmer and can breach the water at abnormally high altitudes if it gains enough momentum. Its Hisuian PokeDex number is #165.
