How to Get Girafarig

Girafarig is quite an uncommon encounter. Being modeled after a giraffe, you’d expect to encounter Girafarig in large open fields. It can only be encountered around two areas in Paldea:

  1. West Province (Area Three)
  2. Area Zero

Because you are unable to access Area Zero until after you have completed the main portion of the game, there is only one other location in Paldea that you may go to in order to have a chance of running across Girafarig early on in your Pokemon adventure.

Comparing Stats Of Girafarig Evolutions

Both Girafarig and Farigiraf feature an intriguing combination of Normal and Psychic type. This typing is a highly good trade off because it gives up its resistance to Fighting type attacks in exchange for immunity to Ghost type assaults. This makes the typing a very desirable defensive combination.

Final Thoughts

Girafarig is a decent Pokemon that has stats that are satisfactory for the most part. It is only going to get better after it evolves into Farigiraf because it will gain a significant amount of stats in both HP and Special Attack, which will allow it to both take and deal damage. Farigiraf’s unique ability, Armor Tail, may also become very useful in certain situations.
