                Lotad is a Grass/Water Pokémon first introduced in Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire. Its design is based on a lily pad. In its normal form, Lotad presents with a large blue body, a green lily pad on its back, small white eyes with black pupils, and a large wide mouth. As a shiny, its body changes from blue to burgundy, its lily pad changes to a teal color, and its mouth and eyes stay the same.


                Lotad evolves into Lombre at Level 14 and Ludicolo when exposed to a Water Stone.


                You must have purchased Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC.

                Preferred Location

                The best location to hunt shiny Lotad is on the lake in the northeast part of Kitakami.

                Best Method To Hunt

                The best method to hunt shiny Lotad is by making a Sparkling and Encounter Power: Grass Lv.3 Sandwich. This is an especially effective method, as Lotad is the only Grass-type Pokémon that spawns in that lake.

                Sandwich Making

                The easiest way to make a Sparkling and Encounter Power: Grass Lv.3 Sandwich is by using:

                • 1 Lettuce
                • 1 Salty Herba Mystica + 1 Spicy/Sour Herba Mystica

                If you don't have Salty Herba Mystica, then use this recipe:

                • 1 Cucumber + 1 Pickle
                • 3 Lettuce
                • Any combination of 2 Herba Mystica except 1 Sweet + 1 Sour

                Tips for Hunting

                The best way to hunt shiny Lotad is to travel around the lake until any spawned Lotad leaves the screen, as this will reset the spawns. Avoid going too close to the grass outside the lake, as this could cause Pokémon other than Lotad to spawn.

                We hope this shiny guide helps you hunt for the elusive shiny Lotad – good luck!
