Snom is one of the new Pokemon that you can catch in Pokemon Sword & Shield, and it evolves into Frosmoth. Both Snom and Frosmoth are an Ice / Bug type combo, making Frosmoth a pretty valuable addition to your Party. So, naturally, people have been wondering where to find and how to catch Snom in Pokemon Sword & Shield, as well as how to evolve it into Frosmoth. And, those are the exact questions we’ll be answering in this article. Let’s dive right into it.
Where to Find Snom?
To find Snom in Pokemon Sword & Shield, you’ll have to look in snowy areas. The best place I can recommend is Route 8 – Steamdrift Way. That’s the snowy area of Route 8; you reach it by heading north, through the long tunnel and across the stone bridge. There’ll be a patch of grass immediately to the left, that’s where we found our Snom. You have a 40% chance to find a Snom in this area, both in the grass and in the overworld in general.
There’s also a 40% chance to find a Snom in the Lake of Outrage, in the grass. On Route 10 and Route 10 – Winter Hill Station, there’s a 10% chance that you’ll find one in the grass. All that said, though, if I were you, I’d go to Steamdrift Way in Route 8.
How Does Frosmoth Evolution Work?
To evolve Frosmoth from Snom in Pokemon Sword & Shield, there are two conditions that you have to fulfill. One; the Snom’s Happiness / Friendship Level has to reach 220. Second, it has to be at night. When you meet these two conditions (I don’t think it has to happen at the same time), then your Snom will evolve into a beautiful Frosmoth. Just like Snom, Frosmoth is an Ice / Bug type Pokemon. So, yeah, it can be a very valuable addition to your Party.
