Pokémon Scarlet and Violet offer more than 400 different Pokémon, including many new species, including the one that interests us today: say hello to Maschiff, a brave doggo looking very sad and joins the ranks of the national Pokédex with its evolution Mabosstifffor the very first time.
Introducing Maschiff and where to find it
Maschiff is one of the new species of this ninth generation of Pokémon. He mostly hangs out in the western portions of the huge Paldea region.
- Paldea Pokédex number : 196
- National Pokédex number : 972
- Type : DarkYou can find your first Maschiff in many different areas of Paldea: Grass Biomes, Ruins Biomes, South Zone 2, South Zone 4, West Zone 2, West Zone 3, and 1-Star Teracrystal Raids.
How to evolve Maschiff?
Grondogue evolves into Mabosstiff at level 30 simply. Take him on your team so he can gain experience points and evolve on his own.
Shiny Maschiff: what does he look like?
It is very important to know what the Shiny forms of the Pokémon look like in these versions since no clues will be left on the screen: no little stars or shrill sound warning you like in Pokémon Legends Arceus. Of course, the color difference will probably jump out at you, but it's sometimes tricky in the case of Pokémon with light (hello Pikachu) or unknown chromatic forms.
- Instead of being brown, shiny Grondogue is purple.
The chance of finding a shiny is 1/4096 in the game. You can optimize this chance with the Chroma Charm (which is obtained once the entire Pokédex is completed) or the Taste Auras of the dishes you eat.
The new Pokemon now available and after testing it a question arises, isn't the game too ambitious? Between features removed, exp too easy and activities, we talk about it!
