When's best to evolve Charcadet in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet?

One of the most popular Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is Charcadet. This in Pokémon can change into two different forms depending on your purchased version. In Scarlet, you'll get Armarouge, a Fire/Psychic-type. In Violet you can evolve into Ceruledge, a Fire/Ghost-type. Here is everything you need to know about when you should evolve Charcadet into Ceruledge/Armarouge in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

Best time to evolve Charcadet into Ceruledge/Armarouge in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

You should evolve Charcadet into Ceruledge/Armarouge in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet whenever you see fit. Even if you evolve Charcadet at an earlier level, it does not matter, as both evolutions, no matter the typing, learn the same moves up until level 32, and you'll have a stronger Pokémon. If you have Violet, it's better to evolve Charcadet as soon as possible, as you can relearn Mystical Fire, a powerful fire move, which is better than all other fire moves learned, until you get Lava Plume.
