Pokemon Legends: Arceus is set in olden times in the Pokemon world when it was rare to find harmony between people and Pokemon. Set in the Hisui region, modern-day Sinnoh, you will join the Galaxy Expedition Team (Galaxy Team for short) as a member of the Survey Corps stationed in Jubilife Village. You will be tasked to meet every Hisui Region Pokemon species to complete the region’s first-ever Pokédex.
In the game, there are certain Pokemon that the player cannot catch or are hard to catch in the wild. One of the methods to catch these Pokemon is through evolution. One of these Pokemon is Froslass, and in this guide, you will learn how to evolve Snorunt into a Froslass!
Snorunt to Froslass
Froslass is an Ice and Ghost type Snow Land Pokemon that floats in the air to move around, has a hollow torso that looks like a kimono, a head with what looks like a mask resembling a sideways water droplet, and horns that look like two ice crystals. According to its Pokedex entry in the game, Froslass is a Pokemon inhabited by the soul of a woman who died while bearing a grudge in the snowy mountains. There is a legend that Froslass places deadly curses on misbehaving men.
Froslass can be found north of Bonechill Wastes in Avalanche Slopes and Icebound Falls in the Alabaster Icelands. Froslass can be found here in any weather condition. However, Froslass can only be found in these locations at night. It is also worth noting that the Froslass located in Icebound Falls is an Alpha Pokemon. Other than that, Froslass can also be found in Massive Mass Outbreaks in the Alabaster Icelands.
However, if you would rather obtain a Froslass through evolution, the player can catch one by evolving a female Snorunt using a Dawn Stone. To do that, the player must first know where to find a Snorunt.
The player may find a Snorunt in the Alabaster Icelands, particularly in the Whiteout Valley, around Bonechill Wastes, in Avalugg’s Legacy, and in Avalanche Slopes. Snorunt can be found in these locations at all times of the day and in every weather condition.
If you plan on distracting it with food before catching it, it is worth mentioning that Snorunt’s preferred foods are Dazzling Honey and Crunchy Salts.
Suppose you plan on battling a Snorunt first before catching it. In that case, it is worth noting that, as mentioned, Snorunt is an Ice-type Pokemon which means it has a weakness to Fighting-type, Fire-type, Rock-type, and Steel-type moves (super effective) and resistance to Ice-type moves (not very effective).
Again, to evolve it into a Froslass, the player must have a female Snorunt so take note of the Snorunt’s gender when catching one (a male Snorunt will evolve into a Glalie).
Now that the player has caught a female Snorunt, all that is needed to evolve a Snorunt to a Froslass is a Dawn Stone. There are several ways that the player can obtain a Dawn Stone:
Dawn Stone can be dug up from treasure buried on the ground by riding the rideable Ursaluna. However, the locations where Ursaluna can dig up Dawn Stone are random.
Additionally, the player may obtain a Dawn Stone by breaking Tumblestone Ores that are shaking. Breaking these shaking ores, however, will result in a Pokemon like Geodude or Graveler popping out and battling the player.
Alternatively, the player can purchase a Dawn Stone for 5,000 Pokemon Dollars from Ginter at the Gingko Guild Shop between the Galaxy Hall and the player’s headquarters. However, Ginter will call it an Eyelike Rock. Unfortunately, the items the Gingko Guild Merchants sell are not the same, so purchasable items may vary. To change the items that Ginter is selling, the player must first catch 20 Pokemon.
The player can purchase a Dawn Stone from the Trading Post near the Training Grounds for 1,200 Merit Points. The player can earn Merit Points by returning lost satchels all over the Hisui region.
Other than that, the player may find some Dawn Stones on the ground inside of Space-Time Distortions, so check out the items inside them.
After catching a female Snorunt and obtaining a Dawn Stone, the player can evolve a female Snorunt into a Froslass!
To do that, this is what the player must do:
- Put the player’s female Snorunt in the Player’s party by talking to the Galaxy Member near the tent on any of the Base Camps, selecting “I want to see my Pokemon” on the prompt, or heading to the Pastures in the eastern part of Jubilife Village.
- Then, ensure that the Dawn Stone is in the player’s Satchel. If not, the player can access the Item Storage in any of the Base Camps or the Item Storage near the Front Gate in the northeastern part of Jubilife City and move the Dawn Stone to the player’s Satchel.
- Next, return to the game and press the up directional button to open the player’s Satchel.
- Select the Dawn Stone, select “Use” on the prompt, then select Snorunt from the player’s party to use the Dawn Stone on Snorunt.
- Confirm on the prompt to evolve Snorunt. Then, just like that, Snorunt will evolve into a Froslass!
Now that the player has a Froslass, the player can try to use the Froslass to complete other requests, missions, or Arceus’ task for the player to catch ‘em all!
