  • If you really want to catch them all, you can do so by trading with a friend playing on the Violet version or entering their world. There is also an option to get your own copy of Pokemon Violet and transfer Passimian over through Pokemon HOME. But with the number of issues the games have been having since launch, will it be worth it?

  • Passimian is not really a rare type of Pokemon that you need to have in both Violet and Scarlet. Of course, that changes if you’re the type of Trainer whose aim is to build a large roster of Pokemon to take part in events like Raid battles

  • Since this is a Fighting-type Pokemon, Passimian is a great choice for an offensive line-up. If you are able to catch this Pokemon, it can have either the Receiver or Telepathy ability
    • Pokemon who are Receivers are able to obtain the ability of a fallen teammate in a double/triple battle
    • For Pokemon with Telepathy, they will not be damaged by teammates during double and triple battles

  • Some Passimians may have a hidden ability called Defiant. Although this is a single-use ability, this may change the tides in a battle when used right. Passimian’s Attack stats will be boosted, making it an effective way to counter the opposing team’s line-up
