Finizen can only evolve into its second stage, Palafin, in multiplayer. That’s right – you’ll need to pay for a Nintendo Switch Online Membership to complete your Pokedex. Or worse, you’ll need IRL friends.

Multiplayer in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet see you and up to three friends exploring Paldea together. You can initiate co-op by heading to the Union Circle at any Poke Center.

Finizen will evolve into Palafin starting at level 38 when you’re in a local or online multiplayer session. If you’re struggling to evolve it, try making sure someone is watching it level up.

It’s a bit of a hassle to evolve but definitely worth it. Hero Form Palafin has the highest base Attack stat of all Water-type Pokemon.

Wait, Different Forms?

Palafin has two unique forms: Hero Form and Zero Form.

In its Zero Form, Palafin looks pretty much the same as its pre-evolution Finizen, except for an adorable pink heart on its tummy.

Thanks to its ability ‘Zero to Hero’ this Dolphin Pokemon turns into a buff superhero that would put Chris Hemsworth to shame. Here’s how it works:

  • Set Palafin as the first Pokemon in your party.
  • Pick a fight with Wild Pokemon or Trainers
  • Withdraw Palafin and swap in another team member
  • On your next turn, swap Palafin back in

Upon re-entering the battle, Paladin will transform into its Hero Form, giving you a stat buff.
