Tandemaus Evolution Guide: Stats, Moves, Type, And Location

Tandemaus Evolution Guide: Stats, Moves, Type, And Location

Generation IX introduced a two-in-one Pokémon named Tandemaus. Also known as the “Couple Pokémon” these unique creatures can be found in specific locations, which we will share with our readers in this article.

In a similar manner to Pokémon such as Diglett, Tandemaus and its evolutions are comprised by separate Pokémon that work together as one. Exeggcutes and Falinks are a similar example to this phenomenon.

They are known to stick together no matter what. Additionally, this Pokémon has constantly exhibited excellent teamwork. Though their evolution is plagued in mystery, no one really knows how the little individuals form the group. They seemingly appear out of nowhere.

Base Statistics

Exhibiting great teamwork, they use their incisors to cut pieces out of any material that might be useful for a nest, then make off with them.

Where to Find A Tandemaus

In Pokémon Scarlet, and Pokémon Violet, there are a handful of places where players have reported observing Tandemaus specimens. These habitats are the following:

  • South Province (Area Two) close to Mesagoza
  • South Province (Area Three) close to Artazon
  • East Province (Area Two) in proximity to Levincia
  • East Province (Area Three) near Levincia and Zapapico
  • West Province (Area Three) close to Medali
  • West Province (Area Two) in proximity to Porto Marinada
  • Apple Hills
  • Kitakami Road
  • Kitakami Wilds
  • Oni Mountain
  • Oni’s Maw
  • Paradise Barrens
  • Reveler’s Road
  • Wistful Fields

Players can find these Pokémons during the morning, noon, evening or night. They are diurnal and nocturnal simultaneously. They do not have any held items, but they are known to be great at teamwork and cooperation. Some of them can only be accessed through the DLC, and we have guides showcasing more information on the Pokémon Scarlet DLC.

How to Evolve

It is possible for players to evolve their Tandemaus if they meet a specific list of criteria. First of all, they must at least be level 25. In order for their Pokémons to increase their level, they must be part of their team and win a handful of victories. Players can not use XP or Rare Candies to evolve a Tandemaus. If they do so, the Pokémon will simply level up without actually evolving. If an opposing Pokémon faints during a battle where you are using a Tandemaus, it is possible to get a standard evolution animation after the battle.

Then, the Pokémon will evolve from Tandemaus into Maushold. Sometimes, there will be a three-member Maushold. Other times, it will be a four-member. There is no way to accurate foreshadow whether a player’s Tandemaus will become a three or four-Pokémon Maushold. However, their statistics will remain the same regardless as to whether it is a three or four Pokémon Maushold.

That’s all the information we have on the unique Tandemaus, and their evolution, Maushold. We will keep our readers updated if there is any new information released from official sources about these Pokémons.
