How to Evolve Sinistea into Polteageist in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
The Ghost-type Sinistea evolves into the strong Polteageist by using a special item that players find in the later stages of Pokémon Scarlet & Violet.
A Pokemon that returns from the previous generation a Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, Sinistea is a unique ghost-type with multiple forms, which evolves into the much more powerful Polteageist when exposed to a certain element depending on which version players have captured. Although the possible item required for this evolution is rare during the later stages of the game, players can still complete their Pokédex using this creepy transformation of the hard-to-find Pokémon. Players looking for Sinistea in the vast open world of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet you can find Spectral China near the ruins of urban areas near the lower left corner of the Paldea region of the map or in the more specific eastern section of the Zapapico City section earlier in the game.
To evolve Sinistea into Polteageist, players must give him either broken pot for a more common one false form Synistea or Cracked pot for a rare Authentic Form variant Sinistea has a visual indicator that informs players of this difference, shown by a stamp on the bottom of the Pokemon’s model. If there is no seal, the Sinistea is False Form, while the presence of the seal recognizes an Authentic Form. Any form of Sinistea can sometimes be caught Pokemon Scarlet and Violet with a separate element called Sinistea Chipswhich are essential to take another item involved in Charcadet’s evolution using the Malicious Armor.
Items needed to evolve Sinistea into Polteageist in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
Regardless of whether players are looking for the broken pot or Cracked pot like the evolutionary items needed for Sinistea, both can be found through the Auction house location, which becomes available after advancing far enough from the main narrative. The Cracked Pot appears more often here than the Chipped Pot, encouraging players to return to this location often to find the right item to give Sinistea for evolution. The unique nature of Sinistea among the other types of ghosts present in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet making it a fascinating addition to any player’s team if they want to use the unorthodox Pokémon in future battles.
Completing the Pokédex means players will need to find both versions of Sinistea and thus items to add both forms of Polteageist to their record. Additionally, there will be two different pieces of data that explain the nature of these Pokemon once players have captured and evolved them, giving a better look at how these ghosts are reflected in the world’s society, for better or for worse. With limited places to look, thankfully reducing the distance players have to travel in the Paldea region, evolving Sinistea into Polteageist takes time and moving through the main story of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet enough to get the right items.
