How to evolve Type Null into Silvally in Pokémon Sword and Shield?

This is the guide on how to evolve your Type Null Pokémon into Savally.

But first, let’s see how to get the Type Null.

How to get Type Null?

Pokémon Sword and Shield

One of the first things you have to do is receive the Type Null. You will receive it by going all the way into the Wyndon Stadium or the Wyndon Battle tower.

Once you enter, turn left. There you will see the girl with the Type Null. She will give you a note saying that you got the Type Null Pokémon to commemorate your victory. Talk to her to receive it for free!

But, if you want to evolve it, there are a few more steps to take.

How to evolve Type Null?

Type Null develops based on friendliness, commonly referred to by fans as happiness. It measures how much a Pokémon is attached to its Trainer and enjoys being in their care. Taking good care of a Pokémon, raising it, using items on it, and grooming it will increase Pokémon’s friendship.

The first thing you have to do to evolve Type Null is giving it a soothe bell. One of the ways to raise friendliness and happiness is by camping.

Another method to raise happiness is to cook. Cooking can make your Pokemon get closer to you. Give the dish you are cooking a good stir and wait for it to be cooked.

Now it’s time to see how the Type Null likes it. To check your Pokemon happiness, you have to go to Hammerlock. Next to it, there is a purple building. Enter it, and you will see a little boy in the room. Talk to him, select “Type Null,” and wait for him to express your level of friendship. The boy should tell you that your Pokemon likes you an average amount.

As long as you take care of your Pokemon, the friendship will grow, and your Pokemon will get more likely to evolve. 

You can also check your Pokemons personality. 

Type Null

Type: Null (or the Synthetic Pokémon) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. 

This one comes with different shapes of front and hind legs because it was constructed to synthesize the strengths of various Pokémon. It enables him to adapt to any situation.

The mask fitted to Type: Null’s head is a piece of equipment designed to control its latent powers. It is pretty heavy, hindering Type: Null’s agility.


Silvally, also known as the Synthetic Pokémon, is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. 

When Type: Null gains a trusted partner, it deliberately destroys the restraining device it wears. Once released from that heavy mask, the Pokémon’s speed increases substantially.

If you want your Pokemon to be more friendly towards you, you might want to release its worries. This is another way how you can check how your Pokemon is feeling. For example, if he wants to play more, go and play with him.

If you want to boost the friendship to the maximum, you must battle with your Pokemon and hope he gets more friendly toward you. After a few battles, your Pokemon Null will gain more experience points and start to feel more friendly towards you. After all these battles, check again how Type Null feels. If you become very good friends, your Pokemon should evolve to Silvally very soon!

Good luck and have fun!
