Bisharp Evolution: How to Evolve Bisharp into Kingambit
In order to evolve Bisharp into Kingambit, you’re first going to need to get yourself a specific Bisharp. Head to Fury Falls, which is a jungle-type area that houses level 50 Pokemon. Once you’re there, you’re going to have to find a very specific type of Bisharp.
While normal Bisharp spawn in the area, you’re looking for a “leader Bisharp.” You can find a leader Bisharp by looking for groups of Pawniard standing around them like in this screenshot.
You need to catch this Bisharp. You’ll know it’s the right one if it’s holding a leader crest item. Once you’ve caught it, you then need to defeat 4 other “leader Bisharp” and then level up.
This process can be very tedious as you’re essentially fighting a mirror match, but if you can teach your Bisharp a fighting-type move, it’ll make the process very simple. Once that’s done, your Bisharp will evolve into Kingambit.
You don’t need to use a Bisharp caught in this area, as long as you can give it the correct item, meaning if you catch a shiny, or high-IV Bisharp in another area, you can still evolve it into Kingambit. Kingambit can also be found in raids.
