How to Evolve Noibat to Noivern in Pokemon Sword and Shield
To cut to the chase, you can evolve Noibat into Noivern in Pokemon Sword and Shield by leveling Noibat up to level 48.
This is far from an easy task, though it shouldn’t surprise anyone who has tried to breed Dragon-type Pokémon. Since Gen 1, Dragon-types have always taken a significant amount of time to get all of their evolutions, and their final forms often get locked behind high level.
Pokemon Sword and Shield Noibat Locations
Noibat is a rare Flying/Dragon type Pokemon found in Galar Mine #2 and you can sometimes find it in Tower Ruins Lookouts, these Locations are very common for a Bat Pokémon, so you’ll find them after wandering around these areas for a while.
Most Noibat come out of their caves at night; Yes, their caves! Because they don’t just look like bats, they are bats, hence their name.
Pokemon Sword and Shield
Noibat evolves into Noivern at level 48. One way to quickly increase Noibat’s levels is to use Exp. Give it candy from the pokemon menu screen, but be aware careful not to overdo it with a pokemon or that pokemon will end up gaining more experience points than you want and will level up quickly before you’re ready (especially if this pokemon has good stats like attack).
It is better to distribute the number of candies that each pokemon receives so that they don’t all reach it quickly. If you’ve already evolved Noibat into Noivern, getting EXP boosts won’t matter much, since no further leveling will happen anyway.
