dunsparce has been the butt of many jokes since appearing on the scene in Gen II, and makes a one-off appearance in scarlet and violet pokemon. Despite her Serene Grace skills and reasonable physical size, Dunsparce has never had a place in any coaches’ arsenals, aside from niche uses. But in Scarlet and Violet, Dunsparce gets a new and appropriately disappointing evolution in the form of Dudunsparce, with a twist: he can potentially evolve into a 2 or even 3 segment form, but it’s unclear how.
How do you get a 3-segmented Dudunsparce in scarlet and purple?
Dunsparce has a 25% chance to evolve into a 3-segment Dudunsparce when it reaches level 32 and learns Hyper Drill, with no exceptions or present ways to increase those chances. This makes things difficult, especially if you’re looking for the best possible look for Dudunsparce, but luckily, looks are purely skin deep. However, having to acquire or breed a multitude of Dunsparce you wouldn’t otherwise use feels a bit like developer trolling, all for a Pokemon you’ll probably never use.
Why do people want a 3 segment Dudunsparce?
People always want all the possible variations of a Pokémon to complete their Pokédex. The chilling implication is mostly for Shiny Hunters hoping for a chance on a 3-segment shiny Dudunsparce, with all its min-maxing stats and Masuda Method grinding, Picnic Resets and more, just to have a 75% chance of only having others. 2 -segment mon. It’s a good thing this Pokemon at least doesn’t have the worst Shiny appearance.
But the most important thing to remember if you’re a competitive player is that the 3-segment Dudunsparce doesn’t do players on Scarlet and Violet any favors, as it has the same move pool and abilities as the 2-segment variant. Despite a much more impressive physical bulk and improved attack stats, this Pokemon is still just a normal type, although with Hyper Drill it can do 100 base STAB damage against Protect users, along with the great ability Serene Grace. But Dudunsparce will be part of a combined competitive niche and dubious bragging rights for Shiny Hunters, becoming a new form of joke on the Pokémon community.
