So, how do you evolve your Poltchageist? Let’s find out!
Pokemon Scarlet & Violet (SV): How to evolve Poltchageist into Sinistcha (Teal Mask DLC)
Contrary to what you may think, Sinistcha isn’t related to Sinistea at all. Although both Pokemon resemble each other quite well, they are different species. While Poltchageist wasn’t included in the base game, The Teal Mask DLC served as its introduction into the ninth generation of mainline Pokemon games. To get this Pokemon, you must purchase the DLC and then enter the Kitakami region. It is mainly found in the southeastern part of this region.
Poltchageist can evolve to Sinistcha, which is a dual-type Grass/Ghost Pokemon. And like other Pokemon, it can learn a variety of moves. In order to evolve Poltchageist into Sinistcha, you can use either one of two items: – Unremarkable Teacup or the Masterpiece Teacup. Now, one of the interesting things about Poltchageist is that it has two forms: Counterfeit and Artisan. You can catch any one of these forms as the only difference between them is that the Artisan form has a special seal located at the bottom. Counterfeit form is more common, while Artisan is rare.
Unremarkable Teacup location
The Unremarkable Teacup is used to evolve the Counterfeit Form of Poltchageist, while the Masterpiece Teacup is for the Artisan Poltchageist. Players can find the Unremarkable Teacup in a cave located in the northwest part of Kitakami, near Paradise Barrens. There’s a red sign (the third one) available near the cave, so you wouldn’t have much trouble finding it.
Masterpiece Teacup location
As for the Masterpiece Teacup, it’s also inside a cave. This one is on the northeast part of Kitakami, near Timeless Woods. There’s a Snorlax sleeping at the entrance of the cave, which makes it easier to find.
When you have obtained the appropriate item, open your inventory and select it. Give it to Poltchageist, and it will evolve into Sinistcha. Now enjoy your newly evolved Pokemon.
