How to Evolve Every Pokemon

How to Evolve Galarian Yamask into Runerigus

Bring Down Galarian Yamask's HP

Yamask with 1 HP Remaining.jpg
Galarian Yamask has a unique method of evolving previously unseen in the series. Galarian Yamask will only evolve if its HP has been decreased by 49 or more without fainting. The easiest way to weaken your Galarian Yamask is by giving it the item Focus Sash, which prevents your Pokemon from fainting from one attack with a remaining HP of 1. You can then use the item Poke Doll to escape the Pokemon you are battling, or switch out Yamask to defeat it with a different Pokemon.

If you don't have a Focus Sash yet, you can go to Route 2 to weaken your Galarian Yamask against low-level Pokemon to prevent it from fainting from battle.

Go through the Pillar in Dusty Bowl

Once you have weakened your Galarian Yamask by at least 49 HP, head to the Dusty Bowl section of the Wild Area and go towards the pillar labeled on the map. After going through the pillar with Galarian Yamask in your party, your Galarian Yamask will then evolve to Runerigus.
