How to evolve Girafarig into Farigiraf
To evolve Girafarig into Farigiraf in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, you will first need to teach it the move Twin Beam. It will learn this at level 32. After you have taught Girafarig this move, just level it up once to trigger the evolution, and add Farigiraf to your Pokédex.
If you already had the opportunity to teach Twin Beam to Girafarig, but turned it down, then you can change its moves in the Pokémon menu. Just select Girafarig, 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 Twin Beam to its moveset here and then evolve Girafarig by levelling up once.
You can use Exp Candy, Rare Candy, or the Let's Go Auto-Battle feature to speed up this process.
