How to unlock Poipole and evolve into Naganadel in The Crown Tundra

Are you trying to get Poipole in Pokemon Sword and Shield’s Crown Tundra expansion? Unlike other Legendary Pokemon and Ultra Beasts, Poipole is a gift Pokemon with specific requirements. You will need to catch a few Ultra Beasts to get this one to show up. We’ll show you exactly how to unlock Poipole and evolve into Naganadel in The Crown Tundra. 

How to unlock Poipole in The Crown Tundra

To get Poipole, you need to catch 5 Ultra beasts in Dynamax Adventures. Make sure you first complete all three Legendary Clues and finish the main Crown Tundra storyline. Poipole is shiny locked because of how you find it in the game. After catching five Ultra Beasts, Poipole should appear in the Max Lair next to the scientist.

Ultra Beasts include Pheromosa, Stakataka, Guzzlord, Kartana, Celesteela, Xurkitree, Buzzwole, Nihilego, Blacephalon, and Necrozma. If you’ve caught five and Poipole does not appear, we recommend finding another one and checking again. It’s essential to catch them in Dynamax Adventures. Otherwise, you will not get credit, and Poipole will not appear.

If you’re not sure how to get Ultra Beasts, complete your Legendary Clue. You can speak with Peonia, who will offer you Legendary Pokemon locations in exchange for 5 Dynite Ore. Always take her up on the Ultra Beast locations, which is crucial for ultimately unlocking Poipole. Save these up and catch five Ultra Beasts in total to get Poipole to appear.

Poipole is a gift Pokemon, so you do not need to catch it or anything. Poipole is a Poison-type Pokemon with Beast Boost, boosting its most proficient stat each time it knocks out a Pokemon. The moveset is Helping Hand, Acid, Fury Attack, and Fell Stinger.

Poipole has a secondary form and a special condition to evolve into it. You’ll need to level up Poipole with Dragon Pulse to evolve it. You can buy this move from vendors if you don’t have it available. After Poipole learns Dragon Pulse, it’s time to level up. 

Toss Poipole a Rare Candy to level it up and start the evolution process. From there, you should evolve Poipole into Naganadel with no problem.
