How to evolve Dunsparce to Dudunsparce
To evolve Dunsparce into Dudunsparce in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, you will first need to teach it the move Hyper Drill. You’ll learn this at level 32. After you’ve taught Dunsparce this move, simply level up once to activate the evolution and add Dudunsparce to your Pokédex.
If you already had a chance to teach Dunsparce Hyper Drill, but turned it down, then you can change its moves in the Pokémon menu. Simply select Dunsparce and choose ‘Verification Summary’. Press right on the d-pad to open his moveset. From here you can change your moves and remember moves you may have forgotten. It adds Hyper Drill to its moveset here and then evolves into Dunsparce by leveling up once.
