In Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, some Pokémon have specific requirements to evolve into its stronger form. Examples of this are: walking 1000 steps with the Pokémon in your party, getting a high friendship with your Pokémon and evolving depending on the time of day. Items dropped by Pokémon after defeating them have various uses depending on the Pokémon, most being used to craft TMs. But other items such as the Bronzor Fragments can be used specifically to evolve a Pokémon through trade to get the evolution item. But what are Bronzor Fragments? Where do we get them? And what do we do with them? Find out below in our guide.

What are Bronzor Fragments?

Bronzor Fragments are used to buy Malicious Armor in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Players need to obtain this armor to evolve Charcadet into Armarouge. Players need to find a total of 10 Bronzor Fragments to trade in Zapapico, the furthest Eastern City in Paldea. These Fragments are dropped by Bronzor after defeating them in battle, the drop rate varies per Pokémon that you knock out. For Pokémon Scarlet, players must collect Bronzor Fragments to evolve Charcadet. Those who are playing on the Violet version need to collect Sinistea Chips to obtain Ceruledge, the other evolution form of Charcadet.

Where to Use Bronzor Fragments

After players have obtained the 10 Bronzor Fragments, go to Zapapico. If you have previously visited here before, then use the fast travel method to get to Zapapico (West). From this Pokémon Centre, head to the left and go down the slope. Keep going left until finding a water fountain. You will see a person wearing a blue jacket, standing by the fountain. They will ask if you want to trade. Say yes and offer the 10 Bronzor Fragments to obtain the Malicious Armor.

Those are the locations of Bronzor in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet and how to obtain Bronzor Fragments. For more Pokémon Scarlet and Violet content, see our related article: How Do You Get Psyduck Down in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
