A detailed guide of Frigibax Location and Evolution in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
An Ice Fin Pokemon, Frigibax is extremely hard to catch due to its rarity. Pokedex has marked Frigibax as a “very rarely seen” Pokemon, but no worries, if you know the exact location to look for Frigibax, most of the trouble is gone. Frigibax also comes with a new Pseudo-Legendry evolution of Pokemon as a strong team addition. So let’s learn all about Frigibax’s Location and Evolution in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet after some basic info.
Frigibax is a rare-to-find Dragon/Ice-type Pokemon.
To encounter and catch Frigibax, players need to travel to Glaseado Mountain.
In Glaseado Mountain, there is an open area where Frigibax can be found.
Frigibax also lives in multiple caves in Glaseado Mountain, but the spawn rate is extremely low and random.
Players can perform the Picnic Reset Method to reset the spawned Pokemon until they find Frigibax.
Frigibax evolves into two Pokemons, Arctibax and Baxcalibur, upon leveling up.
There is no special requirement such as evolution stones to evolve Frigibax. Players can evolve Frigibax by leveling it up.

Abilities And Weaknesses
Frigibax is a no—388 Pokemon in Pokedex with a different entry in Pokemon Scarlet and in Pokemon Violet.
These Pokedex entries are:
Scarlet: Frigibax absorbs heat through its dorsal fin and converts the heat into ice energy. The higher the temperature, the more energy Frigibax stores.
Violet: This Pokemon lives in forests and craggy areas. Using the power of its dorsal fin, it cools the inside of its nest like a refrigerator.
Abilities Of Frigibax
Now that we know what the Pokedex entry has to say about Frigibax let’s move on to the two Abilities Frigibax possesses.
1) Thermal Exchange
In-game Description: Boosts the Attack stat when a Fire-type move hits the Pokemon. The Pokemon also cannot be burned.
The Thermal Exchange ability makes Frigibax a good counter-pick for any Fire-type Pokemon. Each fire damage inflicted on Frigibax results in the Attack stat raising. Not just that, any fire-type move that causes burns is useless against Frigibax.
2) Ice Body (Hidden)
In-game Description: The Pokemon gradually gains HP in snow.
A hidden ability of Frigibax that shows up during a hail or snowstorm. The Pokemon will regain its 6.25% maximum HP after each turn. Another benefit of this ability is that no hailstorm damage will be taken.
Weaknesses Of Frigibax
Since Frigibax is a dual-type Pokemon with Dragon and Ice abilities, it is weaker against more Pokemon than usual. A few Pokemon types that are strong against Frigibax are Fighting, Rock, Dragon, Fairy, and Steel-type, so the best option is to avoid picking Frigibax against any of them due to its 2x weakness to them.
When you go to Pokedex for the Frigibax location, the area where Frigibax is found is highlighted on the map, along with some minor hints. These hints include that:
Frigibax lives in caves
Lives in areas with deep snow
Very rarely seen
However, these hints alone will not be of much help, and neither will the vast area of the map highlighted. I have mentioned an in-depth way to catch Frigibax with ease below:
Find In Glaseado Mountain
The entire Glaseado Mountain is home to many rare Pokemon, which includes Frigibax. The mountain is covered in snow and has multiple secret caves. Finding Frigibax in caves is a tough job due to their lack of respawning there. Therefore, I recommend looking for Frigibax outside the caves.
Glaseado Mountain Location
In Glaseado Mountain, a specific area ensures a Frigibax encounter. To get there, begin your journey from Mesagoza in the South Province (Area Two), situated on the left side of the city. Head north, cross a river, and move toward Cascarrafa, adjacent to the Asado Desert. Then, proceed to the West Province (Area Three) and follow the river until you reach the Glaseado Mountain region.
At Glaseado Mountain, head north and follow the river. Halfway along the river, start traveling east for a shorter distance. Search the area to find Frigibax roaming in the snow, usually between levels 22 and 36. Be prepared for this encounter.
Picnic Reset Method
If you do not want to perform an extensive search, there is a method to speed up the process. You can reset respawn nearby by setting up a picnic table around wild Pokemon and removing it afterward. So yes, picnics with Pokemons are not limited to making sandwiches; they also assist players in finding their desired Pokemon more easily.
Visit a Pokémon Mass Outbreak (identified by the Red Symbol on the map) in your desired area for the specific Pokémon you’re seeking. For Frigibax, head to any Pokémon Outbreak in Glaseado Mountain, typically near caves or the river mentioned.
Set up a Picnic from the menu within the Mass Outbreak area. After some time, remove the Picnic table while ensuring to save the game.
Removing the Picnic Table causes new Pokémon to spawn nearby while the previous ones disappear.
Repeat this process until you encounter Frigibax nearby.
The picnic reset method helps speed up your encounter with Frigibax in Glaseado Mountain. You might have to perform Picnic Reset 4-5 times before finally catching Frigibax nearby.
Evolution of Frigibax
The rare Frigibax evolves into two powerful Pokemons: Arctibax and Baxcalibur.Baxcalibur, the final evolution, is a crucial Dragon/Ice type due to its moves and high stats. Evolving Frigibax follows the traditional method of leveling up through battles, feeding, or Tera Raids; no special requirements like evolution stones are needed.
At Level 35, Frigibax evolves into Arctibax. Further, leveling Arctibax to Level 54 completes its evolution into Baxcalibur, one of the strongest Dragon-type Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
Having Frigibax, Arctibax, and, later on, a beastly Baxcalibur gives trainers an upper hand in battles due to the Pokemon’s incredible abilities. Therefore, all the effort to find and evolve it is always worthwhile.
So, whether you have trouble finding Frigibax or simply want to learn about its evolution, I have it covered in my Frigibax Location and Evolution in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet guide. Go on and win the battles with Frigibax on your side now. Good Luck!
