Archaludon evolution guide: Find the Metal Alloy
There are two ways to acquire the Metal Alloy in The Indigo Disk. The first of which is to complete your Blueberry Academy Pokedex to a high enough level that you are given the evolution item as a reward.
However, doing this takes a significant amount of time, and there’s a far easier way.
In the Chargestone Cavern, there is a Tera-form Porygon glowing in the middle of the area. It’s high up on the top floor of the Chargeston Cavern, but once you’re in the area, which is the in the centre of the map between the Savannah and Polar Biomes, you should be able to find it easy enough due to the bright glow.
Just off to the side, there is a Metal Alloy hiding behind a large blue crystal. We’ve provided a picture below of the nearby battle arena that you can use to orient yourself in the right direction.
Archaludon evolution guide: Evolve Duralodon
If you’ve not got a Duraludon to evolve, you can find them fairly easily in the Polar Biome. They also appear in raids, so getting your hands on one shouldn’t be too difficult. Thankfully, the Metal Alloy is a traditional evolution item rather than a trade one, so you can just give it to Duraludon and you’ll have Archaludon on your team.
And that’s it, that’s everything you need to know about evolving Duraludon into Archaludon.
