PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I'm building a Battle Tree team, and I wanted Black Sludge for my Toxapex. I just want to know how to obtain it, since I already have a Pokemon holding Leftovers.

Thanks in advance! :)

You get it from wild grimers.
5% chance. Best thing to do is get a butterfree with compound eyes and thief and S.O.S chain grimer till ya find one.

The only way to get Black Sludge in USUM is by using Thief on a wild Grimer. They each have a 5% chance of holding it.

Grimer have a 5% chance of holding a Black Sludge in the wild.

Hope this helped!

Where are Golem and Muk in the wild? I couldnt find locations for them :/
don't know why serebii lists golem and muk having black sludge, edited (and literally anything else that can't be found wild in USUM, unless Pokebase location data is off)
Oh, ok. Oof.
