If you’re interested in raising and training a Baxcalibur, then there are a few things you need to know about this beast.

Meet Baxcalibur, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet’s latest pseudo-legend.

Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: How to catch Baxcalibur

Like almost all pseudo-legendary Pokemon, you cannot catch Baxcalibur in the wild.

It’s possible to catch one in five and six star raids, but these can be a little tricky if you’re not prepared.

The easiest way to get Baxcalibur is to catch his first stage evolution, Frigibax. These can be found all over Glasedo Mountain.

Frigibax evolves into Arctibax at level 35 and then into Baxcalibur at level 54.

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet: What are Baxcalibur’s strengths?

Baxcalibur is a Pseudo-Legendary Pokemon, a Pokemon that has legendary level stats but can be found and bred like a normal Pokemon.

It has a base total of 600, with extra strong Attack (145) and HP (115).

Baxcalibur is also a rare type. Only one other Pokémon is Dragon/Ice-type, the Legendary Pokémon Kyurem.

It also has a signature ability, Thermal Exchange, which boosts its attack when hit by a Fire-type attack.

It also prevents Baxcalibur from being burned, a status condition that halves the Pokemon’s Attack.

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet: What are Baxcalibur’s weaknesses?

Unfortunately, while Baxcalibur is good for casual play, it has too many weaknesses to be considered good in competition.

Dragon/Ice isn’t a particularly strong type and suffers from five weaknesses to common types: Fighting, Stone, Dragon, Steel, and Fairy.

The latter two types are very commonly seen in competition, and resistances to Electricity, Grass, Fire, and Water don’t make up for this.

While the inability to burn is strong, the attack boosts rely on Baxcalibur being hit with a Fire-type attack, which competitors will avoid.

His signature move, Glaive Rush, is very strong at 120 base power, but has the major disadvantage that enemy attacks are inevitable and deal double damage in the next turn.

This means that you can only use it if you are both faster than your opponent and can predict that he will make a status move, which is difficult.

If you’re slower, which Baxcalibur likely will be since it has unimpressive speed, then your opponent will know to hit with their strongest attack next turn.

However, knocking out the opponent or a clever switch can negate this.

Baxcalibur is a small one-trick pony, but it can come in handy when it singles out the opponent confidently every turn.
