Frequently Asked Questions About How to Evolve Toxel
Is Toxtricity useful in Pokémon Sword and Shield?
Yes. Toxtricity is a highly useful member of Pokemon Sword because it's a dual-type of Pokemon. The Toxtricity is both electric and poison.
This means that you will have an effective status attacker on your hands that can either paralyze or poison your opponent. You will be able to properly take care of water-type Pokemon and also have the upper hand over grass and fairy-type Pokemon.
In Pokémon Sword and Shield, you'll be able to catch Pokémon in the Wild Area easily because of the Toxtricity's ability to paralyze other Pokémon. This feature will also prevent the targets from attacking you.

The main difference that's extremely noticeable is the appearance. The low-key form has a blue and purple appearance, while the amped form has a yellow and purple appearance.
The other difference is the final attack that each type learns by leveling up. Therefore, at level 52, the Amped form Toxtricity learns Shift Gear. This is a steel-type attack. If you use this feature, you will raise the Toxtricity's attack and speed.
