How to evolve Murkrow in Pokémon Legends: Arceus is something that many trainers are looking to do at the moment in order to obtain a Honchkrow.

For as long as Pokémon has been around, there have been some creatures that have special requirements before they undergo an evolution — including Murkrow.

Here's a breakdown of how to evolve Murkrow in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.

How to Evolve Murkrow in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, there are a wide variety of evolution methods depending on the Pokémon species in question.

While the vast majority of Pokémon evolutions in this game just simply require trainers to reach certain criteria such as leveling them up to a certain threshold, others call for a specific evolution stone.

To evolve Murkrow into Honchkrow in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, trainers need to give it a Dusk Stone.

There is no level or friendship requirement needed, either. Trainers could theoretically evolve their Murkrow the instant they catch it. Of course, that decision is up to them.

The easiest way to get a Dusk Stone in Pokémon Legends: Arceus is by purchasing it at the Trading Post in Jubilife Village for 1,200 Merit Points. Merit Points, are earned by turning in dropped Satchels found in the wild.

An alternative way to get Dusk Stones is by riding around on an Ursaluna and digging up hidden items. Of course, any evolution stones can be had using this method, so some luck and patience will likely be necessary.
