How to get Black Augurite in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

Black Augurite is one of the harder evolution items to find in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, so don't be surprised if obtaining one takes you some time.

At the time of writing, we've only been able to find Black Augurite by defeating or catching Gravelers.

While you can find Gravelers across all five biomes in Legends: Arceus, we recommend focusing on the Coronet Highlands. This is because, compared to the other biomes, Graveler appears in greater numbers across four locations - Heavenward Lookout, Bolderoll Ravine, Clamberclaw Cliff or Celestica Ruins.

There can also be a mass outbreak of Gravelers in either the Crimson Mirelands or Coronet Highlands. It's a good idea to keep an eye out for this event if you're searching for Black Augurite, because the higher number of Gravelers means you can battle more in a short space of time.

Once you have a Black Augurite, you can use it to evolve a Scyther into a Kleavor.

Good luck in the Hisui region!
