Cacnea and Cacturne are two incredibly interesting and unique Pokémons that are native to the Hoenn region. They are a part of the Grass-type family and have a cactus-like appearance, which makes these two stand out from the rest. If you’re looking to capture these Pokémons, you’ll want to know where to find them first. In this guide, you will get to know how to find Cacnea and Cacturne in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet.
Where to find Cacnea and Cacturne in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet
According to the Pokedex entry of Cacnea, it can only be found in the northeast corner of the Asado Desert north of Cascarrafa. They aren’t considered to be a rare spawn so trainers will have a bit of difficulty encountering them among the desert sands.
When you’re looking at its Pokedex entry, you might think that Cacturne is a Pokémon that doesn’t spawn naturally in the overworld since its habitat is listed as unknown. However, it is a Pokémon that actually spawns in the Asado Desert.
To have a chance of finding a Cacturne in the wild, you need to look in the same area as you would for wild Cacneas. Although it might take a bit of time to encounter them.
How to capture these Pokemons?
When you’re capturing Cacnea and Cacturne, it’ll be important to have the right Pokémon on your team. Pokémons that are strong against Grass-types like Flying, Fire, Ice, or Poison-type Pokémons will be a great choice for battling against Cacnea and Cacturne. You can even use status moves like Sleep Powder or Stun Spore for making it easier to capture them.
It’ll be important to have several Poke balls and other capturing items like Great Balls and Ultra Balls with you to make the process easier. If you’re struggling to capture Cacnea and Cacturne, you should use a weakening move like False Swipe for bringing their HP down to 1, which will make it easy to capture them.
