Where to find Charcadet in Pokémon Violet
The Pokédex says that you can find Charcadet in ‘many parts of Paldea’, which isn’t very helpful.
Although you can locate it in other areas, the first thing we could find Charcadet in Pokémon Violet was in the location of the Western Province (Area One), just north of Cortondo.
Follow the main path northwest of Cortondo and you should see its black and red icon appear on your minimap when you get close enough to a Charcadet.
The exact location may differ for you, but we found a Charcadet on a cul-de-sac near the river that runs through the center of West Province (Area One).
So if you’re having a hard time spotting one even though you can see it on the minimap, you might want to search for Charcadet in this area.

How to evolve Charcadet to Ceruledge in Pokemon Violet and Malicious Armor location
To evolve Charcadet into Ceruledge in Pokémon Violet, you must collect 10 Sinistea Tokens and then take them to the city of Zapapico to exchange them for a ‘curio’.
Once you have 10 Sinistea Tokens, take them to the woman by a fountain in Zapapico, who will give you the Curiosity, which is actually a ‘Malicious Armor’ set.
Once you have the malicious armor, go to the “Other” tab in your inventory and use it on Charcadet, who will then evolve into Ceruledge.
There is no limit to the number of times you can trade for Malicious Armor on Violet, so if you want multiple Ceruledges for yourself or to trade with a friend, then you can continue to collect Sinistea Chips.
We have more information on our dedicated Sinistea page, but in general, if you want to find Sinistea for Sinistea Tokens, we recommend forging a path to Zapapico by going up the eastern side of Paldea.
You need to get to town to get the malicious armor anyway, and you’ll also be able to find Sinistea around Zapapico at night. We found many around the pokemon center east.
Remember, since Ceruledge is a Violet-exclusive Pokemon, you can’t get it into Pokemon Scarlet, but you can evolve Charcadet into Armarouge.
