How to evolve Dunsparce into Dudunsparce
To evolve Dunsparce into Dudunsparce in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, you will first need to teach it the move Hyper Drill. It will learn this at level 32. After you have taught Dunsparce this move, just level it up once to trigger the evolution, and add Dudunsparce to your Pokédex.
If you already had the opportunity to teach Hyper Drill to Dunsparce, but turned it down, then you can change its moves in the Pokémon menu. Just select Dunsparce, and choose 'Check Summary'. Press right on the d-pad to bring up its moveset. From here you can change its moves, and remember moves that it has forgotten. Add Hyper Drill to its moveset here and then evolve Dunsparce by levelling up once.
