Armarouge is a new Fire and Psychic dual-type that debuted in Gen 9’s Pladea region and is exclusive to Pokémon Scarlet, while Pokémon Violet gets Ceruledge.
To turn Charcadet into Armarouge in Pokémon Scarlet, you must first complete a special collection challenge.
Below, we detail exactly how to turn Charcadet into Armarouge, along with where to find Charcadet in the first place.

Where to find Charcadet in Pokémon Scarlet
While the Pokédex entry says it can be found in “many parts of Paldea,” Charcadet is actually a very rare find.
You may be able to locate it elsewhere, but the earliest we could find Charcadet in Pokémon Scarlet was in the Western Province (Area One) location, just north of Cortondo.
Follow the main path northwest from Cortondo and you’ll see its black and red icon appear on your minimap when you get close enough to a Charcadet.
The exact location may differ for you, but we found a Charcadet in a dead-end corner near the river that runs through the center of Western Province (Area One).
So if you’re having trouble spotting one even though you can see it on the minimap, you might want to look for Charcadet in this area.
Our The Teal Mask walkthrough will help you complete the first part of The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC, but make sure you know how to start it first. When visiting Kitakami it is a good idea to know how to get Sinistea, Dipplin and The Loyal Three. Our Pokémon Scarlet and Violet walkthrough can take you through the main campaign, including The First Day of School, Victory Road, Starfall Street, Path of Legends, and, when you’re ready, The Way Home and the final boss. Elsewhere, we can help with the normal gym test secret item menu, version differences, the best scarlet and violet starter, XP farming, shiny Pokémon, and learning to fly, swim, climb, and run. When it comes to individual Pokémon, we can help with Gimmighoul, Ditto, Bellibolt, Pawmot, Scovillain, Frigibax, Brambleghast, Annihilape, Farigiraf, Dudunsparce, Lycanrock, Armarouge, and Ceruledge.
How to Evolve Charcadet into Armarouge in Pokémon Scarlet and Auspicious Armor Location
To turn Charcadet into Armarouge in Pokémon Scarlet, you must collect 10 Bronzor fragments and then bring them to Zapapico City to exchange them for an “auspicious curiosity.”
Once you have 10 Bronzor Shards (our Bronzor locations can help you if you need to find them first), take them to the man wearing a pink shirt next to a fountain in Zapapico, who will then give you the Curiosity, which is actually a set of ‘Auspicious armor’.
Once you have the Auspicious Armor, go to the “Others” tab in your inventory and use it on Charcadet, who will then evolve into Armarouge.
You have to use the Auspicious Armor item on Charcadet to get Armarouge.
Remember, since Armarouge is a Scarlet-exclusive Pokémon, you can’t get it in Pokémon Violet, but you can evolve Charcadet into Ceruledge.
