Manipulate the weather in the Wild Area

The weather in each section of the Wild Area is normally randomized based on your Switch system's date. This can be somewhat annoying since certain Pokemon will only appear during certain weather conditions. However, by setting your Switch system's date to a specific date (which differs depending on the weather condition you want), every section of the Wild Area will be experiencing the desired weather condition. The dates (listed in MM/DD/YYYY format) for each weather condition are as follows:

  • Clear: 5/1/2020
  • Sunny: 7/1/2020
  • Cloudy: 3/1/2020
  • Rain: 10/1/2020
  • Thunderstorm: 11/1/2020
  • Snow: 12/1/2020
  • Hail: 2/1/2020 (must have at least 4 badges)
  • Sandstorm: 4/1/2020 (must have at least 4 badges)
  • Fog: 6/1/2020 (must have defeated the Champion)

Sell your goods at the market

With all of those items and sweet outfits, it can be hard getting the money necessary to buy everything you want. Fortunately, the market in Stow-on-Side tends to give you a lot more money for the items you sell than a PokeMart would. The trade-off here is that the store owner will only purchase one item from you per day, so you'll want to be strategic with the items you sell.

Having a well-balanced party means you need to have Pokémon with several different types. Each type is weak against certain types and strong against others. For instance, Water is strong against Fire, but weak against Grass. To beat opponents and gym leaders, you'll need to take advantage of this system.

The best way to do that is to have as many different Pokémon types in your party as possible. That way, you'll be ready for any random encounter you might come across. Some Pokémon only have one type, but others have two types. If possible, get Pokémon with multiple types. You'll also want to be aware of the type of attacks your Pokémon has. Just because it's a Fire-type, doesn't mean it has a Fire-type move yet.

Collecting Watts

Pokémon dens are where you come across Max Raid Battles. However, if you come across a den that isn't glowing, you can collect Watts from it. This is the currency explicitly used in the Wild Area. You can sometimes find rare items selling from the Wild Area's merchants, so you definitely want to have Watts handy.

Cooking meals

Cooking meals with your Pokémon gives you dishes that you can use during battle to boost morale, heal all of your Pokémon at once, or raise their friendliness levels. Pokémon that have a higher level of friendliness are more likely to inflict critical hits during battle. You're going to want to experiment and make dishes often. What's more, playing with your Pokémon in the Pokémon Camp raises their experience points.

In-Game Watt Traders

There are a lot of NPCs in the Wild Area, but not a lot of Watt Traders. Most NPCs temporarily appear just to exchange a random item with you for 100 Watts. Sometimes you'll luck out and get an evolution stone or a Wishing Piece. Sometimes, however, you'll be stuck with a couple of small EXP candies, meaning that you lost some hard-earned Watts to a pointless gamble.

Watt Traders are a safer bet, for the most part. Every single Watt Trader has their own unique stock, but the general formula for what sort of items they carry is as follows:

  • One kind of special Poke Ball, such as a Quick Ball, a Timer Ball, or a Net Ball.
  • Wishing Pieces, which can be used on empty Poke Dens to attract a Gigantamax Pokemon and trigger a Raid
  • A variety of TMs, or TRs in Sword and Shield, which are single-use items that can be used to teach Pokemon a new move (once it's compatible with them, of course)

Special Poke Balls usually cost about 50 Watts each, whereas Wishing Pieces are 3,000 and TMs can range from 2,000 right up to 8,000, depending on rarity. Although these prices might seem steep to new players, it's important to note that the amount of Watts you get from Poke Dens increases dramatically later in the game, to the extent that regular dens net you 200 Watts and Raid dens will give you a whopping 2,000.

Boost Your Shiny Chances

The shiny rate works a little different from past Pokemon games. In Pokemon Sword and Shield you'll still keep increasing your shiny rate as you catch multiple of the same Pokemon in a row (AKA chaining); Without you or them running away or you missing a throw.

What's new this time around is that the more of the same Pokemon you've ever battled without running into a shiny, the more the game will re-roll the shiny base chance roll, the max is 6 times every wild encounter. To be specific... At 50 battled it goes to 2 extra rolls, at 100 battled to 3 extra rolls, at 200 battled to 4 extra rolls, at 300 battled to 5 extra rolls, and finally at 500 or more battled to 6 extra rolls.

Of note is that Pokemon Sword and Shield's code guarantees that any Pokemon that's of too high a level for you to catch in the open wild area, that automatically means it cannot be shiny. That way you'll never encounter a high level shiny Pokemon you've got no chance of actually catching.

PS: The Shiny Charm that increases your chances of a shiny Pokemon has been found in the game code. But it's unclear how to unlock it so far. Possibly you'll need to complete your Pokedex to get it, as that's how it was in Pokemon Let's Go.

Using Mints

Mints are items that will make their first appearance in these games. They'll impact which stats of your Pokémon are likely to grow faster than usual! Each Pokémon has a Nature, and this Nature can impact which of the Pokémon's stats are likely to grow faster or slower than average. Using a Mint on a Pokémon seems to change these stat-growth patterns! However, a Pokémon's Nature itself won't change even if you use a Mint.

Freekovnature, Dec 5, 2019

Raise Pokémon's stats

Nutritious drinks like Protein and Iron raise a Pokémon's base points, which in turn help raise that Pokémon's stats. Until now, there has been a limit on how many of these items could be used on a Pokémon. However, in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, you're now able to max out a Pokémon's base points using only these supplements! If two Pokémon are of the same species but one has more base points, the Pokémon with more base points will grow to be stronger!

EXP Candies and level up your Pokémon

Normally, your Pokémon earn Exp. Points through battles. But if you use an Exp. Candy, you'll be able to give your Pokémon Exp. Points directly! You can earn these Candies in Max Raid Battles, so collect a bunch and level up your Pokémon in a flash!

Caylin0312, Dec 5, 2019

Egg Moves

Sometimes, a Pokémon hatched from an Egg will know unusual moves called Egg Moves. These Egg Moves are moves that the Pokémon wouldn't normally be able to learn through more common means, like leveling up or using TMs. In these games, if you leave two Pokémon of the same species at the Pokémon Nursery together, an Egg Move that one of them knows can be passed on to the other Pokémon! — It appears that a Pokémon can only learn an Egg Move this way when it knows three or fewer moves.

HungryHippo, Dec 5, 2019

Pokemon Boxes

You can deposit Pokémon you don't want on your team in your Pokémon Boxes. In Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, you'll be able to access your Pokémon Boxes in various towns and facilities but also while you're on the road or even when you're exploring in the tall grass! You'll be able to swap Pokémon into and out of your team whenever you want, so try experimenting with all sorts of different Pokémon. Just be aware that there are a few places such as the mission areas where you take on Pokémon Gyms where you won't be able to access your Boxes.

Autosave function

Saving diligently has always been part of a Pokémon adventure, but now there's an autosave function to help you out! The autosave function will automatically save your progress during your adventure at various points, such as when you enter a town or a building. — This function is automatically turned on when you begin your adventure, but you'll be able to turn it off if you want to have more control over when your progress is saved. Even with autosave on, you'll still be able to save manually, too, just as you can when autosave is off. Go to the Options menu to choose how you'd like to save, so you can set up an experience that suits your style! — A message will appear in the upper-right-hand corner of the screen when your progress is being automatically saved.

Using Nicknames

If a Pokémon you received in a trade doesn't have a nickname, you'll now have the chance to give it a nickname but only once! Speak to the man standing behind the left-hand counter in any Galar region Pokémon Center this jack-of-all-trades is sure to help you out! Note that, just as in previous titles, you won't be able to change the name of a traded Pokémon that already has a nickname.

Hahacameron, Dec 5, 2019

Surprise Trades

One of the features available on the Y-Comm menu is the Surprise Trade. Select a Pokémon from your Boxes that you're willing to trade, and that's it! A trading partner will automatically be found as you continue on your adventure! The game will keep trying to match you with a trading partner even as you engage in the Pokémon battles or other activities you'll find while exploring Galar, so there's no need for you to hunt for a trading partner or feel like you're left waiting! These trades can be carried out with players from around the world if you're using the internet. But with local communication, you can even get a trade from someone around you before you know what's happening! Head out to lots of different places, and see if you can get a Surprise Trade! You won't know what Pokémon you'll get in exchange for your Pokémon until you actually receive it. If you're lucky, you might end up with a rare Pokémon. Note that a membership in the Nintendo Switch Online (paid) service is required to participate in Link Trades and Link Battles using the internet. Luckily there's no need to set up a membership for local communication use.

Getting all three starters

Have 3 people, each with a various starter, all breed for 2 eggs of their own starter. Hatch them, then provide one newborn to each other player for all 3 players to have all 3 beginners in just 3 trades. You can then use those traded ones to breed as much more as wanted.

How Get Appletun

Go to Hammerlocke close to the Vault, on the west-side of town near the exit, there is a young kid standing near eviction. He will ask you for an Applin to offer to a lady he likes. This is not a trade. Select to help the young kid and he will take your Applin. The girl will not take the Applin-- so you will get it back after a brief cut-scene. The kid will then offer you the Applin back and the Sweet Apple special item. This is the item you require to evolve Applin to Appletun. Keep in mind: Appletun is unique to the Pokemon Shield version.

How Get a Charmander

Effectively complete the game, then after the credits, you will be returned home and into your room. Go outdoors and follow the roadway to the right, and enter into Hop's home. Go upstairs and into the room on the right to find a Poke ball on the flooring. Gather it to find Charmander inside. If you desire to make more, you can breed Charmander with a Ditto.

How Get Dino Pokemon

Go to the Fossil Restoration NPC found on Route 6. Go up the left ladder when you reach the 2 ladders. On top, look left of the camper to find Dr. Cara Liss. Provide Cara Liss the shown mix of fossils to get the matching Galarian Pokemon.

  • Arctovish: Fossizlied Fish + Fossilized Dino
  • Arctozolt: Fossilized Bird + Fossiziled Dino
  • Dracovish: Fossilized Fish + Fossilized Drake
  • Dracozolt: Fossilized Bird + Fossiziled Drake

There is a possibility to get any of these fossils from the Digging Duo situated to the right of the Pokemon Nursery on the Bridge Field in the Wilds. Pay them 500 Watts for an opportunity at discovering any of the 4 fossil types. You can also find fossils arbitrarily while checking out the Wilds.

  • Fossilized Bird: Found in Dusty Bowl and Stow-On-Side.
  • Fossilized Dino: Found in Dusty Bowl.
  • Fossilized Drake: Found in Dusty Bowl and Stow-On-Side.
  • Fossilized Fish: Found in Dusty Bowl and Route 6.

Keep in mind: There are 4 ancient Pokemon's you can bring back from fossils. It is suggested to save your Watts and invest them on the Digging Duo. Ensure to just pay the right digging sibling, as he is most likely to get you more things.

Getting Eevee and Pikachu early

First, transfer your Pokemon: Let's Go, Eevee! and/or Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu! data to your device. If you do not have the data or are playing on a different device, you will not be able to trade for Eevee and Pikachu. Then, speak with the children at the train station. It is called the Meetup Spot and is right before you enter the wild zone.

GamerMan, Dec 5, 2019

Getting Pikachu

Pikachu can be found on Route 4 during the day and night. It is a rarer Pokemon and hard to see in the yellow grass. Try to keep an eye out for the brighter yellow ears of Pikachu while you are in the area. If you do not see one, go to town and return. Pikachu is very fast and an Electric type. It is recommended to use a Ground Pokemon. Ground is strong against Electric so a Ground Pokemon should be able to take plenty of hits without being incapacitated. However, you need to be careful not to kill Pikachu. Avoid using Ground moves if possible, sticking to normal moves to lower Pikachu's HP so you can catch it more efficiently.

Evolving Eevee into Espeon

You cannot evolve the Eevee from the Pokemon: Let's Go, Eevee! data. Thus, you need to catch an Eevee in the wild to evolve it. Once you have caught a wild Eevee, raise your friendship with it. You can do this by camping and playing with it, feeding it at camp, fighting battles with it, and giving it certain items. You can view how friendly your Pokemon is towards you by talking to the kid in the house in Hammerlocke, which is to the right of the first Pokecenter. When you get to pretty friendly with your Eevee, it will evolve at its next level. To get Espeon, you have to evolve Eevee during the day. It should evolve around Level 19.

Draegon, Dec 5, 2019

Evolving Eevee into Umbreon

You cannot evolve the Eevee from the Pokemon: Let's Go, Eevee! data. Thus, you need to catch an Eevee in the wild to evolve it. Once you have caught a wild Eevee, raise your friendship with it. There are a few ways to do this. You can camp, play, and cook with it. You can fight with it in battle to raise it up. Do not let it faint, as that hurts your relationship. There is an item you can give it called the Soothe Bell which makes it more friendly as well. The most important thing is you need to level up Eevee at night. When your Eevee is friendly with you, and you level it up at night, it will change into Umbreon. It should evolve around Level 23. You can view how friendly your Pokemon is towards you by talking to the kid in the house in Hammerlocke, which is to the right of the first Pokecenter. If he says you are pretty good friends, then Eevee will evolve next level.

8 In-Game Eevee evolutions

There are 8 Eevee evolutions--- one for 8 various kinds of Pokemon. Depending upon which approach you use for Eevee, she will evolve into among the 8 types. Eevee can be discovered on Route 4 and is rather rare. Search for her in the field near the Eevee Pokekid. You can evolve Eevee at any time using the suggested approaches noted below. You do not require to reach any particular level.

  • Espeon (Psychic type): Reach Happiness 160 and level up throughout the day.
  • Flareon (Fire type): Use a Fire Stone evolution item.
  • Glaceon (Ice type): Use an Ice Stone evolution item.
  • Jolteon (Electric type): Use a Thunder Stone evolution item.
  • Leafeon (Grass type): Use a Leaf Stone evolution item.
  • Sylveon (Fairy type): Reach Happiness 160 and level up with a Fairy Type move found out.
  • Umbreon (Dark type): Reach Happiness 160 and level up throughout the night.
  • Vaporeon (Water type): Use a Water Stone evolution item.

Evolve Piloswine into Mamoswine

To evolve Piloswine into Mamoswine, initially get Swinub to Level 33 to evolve into Piloswine. With Piloswine, travel to any Pokemon Center and talk to the Move Reminder NPC on the. Select to relearn the "Ancient Power" move for Piloswine. Level up with Ancient Power to evolve into Mamoswine. Ancient Power is a move that you can just discover with Piloswine. You can find Swinub arbitrarily roaming the Wilds. Piloswine is a little bit more rare, and looks like a very challenging encounter. All of these Pokemon are Ice/Ground-- so they are most likely to appear in snowy weather condition. They are also great Pokemon to have in your collection.

Richierich21_06, Dec 5, 2019

Evolving Yamask into Runerigus

Before you can evolve Yamask into Runerigus, you must catch Yamask. Yamask can be found in a Max Raid battle; the Galarian Yamask can also be found on Route 6. You can also trade for a Unovan Yamask in Ballonlea —- but you will not be able to evolve that one using this method. Once you have Yamask, get him to take 49+ HP of damage. 49+ HP off your maximum HP is all that is needed. It may seem bizarre, but that is how it works. Do not heal. Take Yamask (with 49 or more HP taken off) to the Dusty Bowl in the Wilds. The tricky part is, Yamask needs to take 49+ HP of damage in a single hit. Make sure to bring a high-level Yamask. Note: The easiest way to take 49+ damage in a single hit is to fight a high-level enemy in the Wilds with Yamask and the Focus Sash held item equipped. This item allows any Pokemon holding it to survive a fatal attack with 1 HP. Find a Focus Sash in Hammerlocke. Save your game if you take 49+ points of damage in a single attack, then run to the Dusty Bowl. Find the huge stone structure —- it is the giant flat stone. When you walk under it with Yamask in your party, Yamask will immediately evolve into Runerigus. Make sure to walk all the way through the arch. Runerigus is a huge stone possessed by a ghost. It is a Ground/Ghost type with high Defense, Special Defense, and HP. It is an extremely rare Pokemon, and one of the weirdest evolution methods in the series.

Farming Max IV Dittos

There are lots of Pokemon to catch in Max Raids, but Ditto is one of the most valuable Pokemon if you want to breed lots of Pokemon. Ditto is genderless -- so it can breed with any other Pokemon in your Pokedex. However, Ditto is very rare. The only way to get it is to farm a specific Max Raid den in the Wilds. It is hard getting a Ditto, but it is even harder getting a useful Ditto with high IVs (genes). You will be able to check IVs after completing the game. Try to get a Ditto with Max IVs. The more Max IVs a Pokemon has, the better they are for breeding and they will pass those values onto their eggs.

To farm for Ditto, you first need access to the Lake Of Outrage in the Wilds. You will unlock the ability to cross water with the bike on Route 9. Locate the den surrounded by standing stones in a circle. This Max Raid den is where Ditto can spawn, and you will need a lot of Wishing Pieces to make him appear. You can find Wishing Pieces by talking to the Digger Bros (Digging Duo) in the Wilds they are to the right of the Pokemon Nursery. For 500 watts, they will collect random rare items for you. Only talk to the brother on the right, as he digs less, but can find the Wishing Piece. The left brother will never find it. When trying to catch a Ditto, make sure you are the host. The host of a Max Raid will always catch the Pokemon, as there is a 100% catch rate chance. You can do this by selecting to stay on a local connection and not inviting other trainers to help. It is also recommended to do this early in the day so if you are farming (and fail), you will not get reset soon after starting to farm. All Max Raids reset around midnight.
Infinite money

Bmoreau, Dec 5, 2019

Infinite money

If you use Gigantamax Meowth, it is possible to multiply your money rewards from completing battles. Use the Amulet Coin in addition to double your rewards further. To get an Amulet Coin, look for it behind the sign to Galar Mine #2 in the Motostoke Outskirts area. To get Gigantamax Meowth, it is a Mystery Gift for early adopters. You can also trade for standard (Gigantamax) Meowth in Turffield. Talk to an NPC trainer in the gym to trade. Gigantamax Meowth can appear as a Max Raid opponent in the following Wilds areas: Dusty Bowl, Giant's Seat, and Stony Wilderness. This trick requires a Gigantamax Meowth so it only works in Dynamax Battles.

Equip the Amulet Coin held item on Meowth, then enter a Dynamax Battle you can farm the Champion Cup and re-battle trainers after you have completed the story. To earn 99,999 (max amount of money possible), enter Meowth's Gigantamax Form and use his special G-Max Gold Rush move three times. Each time you use G-Max Gold Rush, you multiply the money reward for the battle by x100. Use it three times to multiply your reward by x300. Carry the Amulet Coin to double your rewards -- so you will get a x600 money reward per battle. You will need to be high level, and you will need to be able to win even if you waste your three turns as a Dynamax Form. To get the maximum amount of money per battle, reach Level 84 with Gigantamax Meowth. Save up Rare Candy or use your EXP Candy to rapidly level up Meowth.

Cookiemonster, Dec 5, 2019

Getting the Master Ball

Effectively complete the game, then after the credits, you will be returned home and into your room. Leave your room, and a female will enter your home and speak to you. She will offer you a Master Ball as a reward for ending up being champ when she is done. There is just one in the game-- so make certain to use it sensibly. It is suggested to use it on the famous Pokemon so it does not take a long period of time to capture.

Bigboy, Dec 5, 2019

Evolution Stones

Stones are special evolution items used on particular Pokemon. Go to the Nursery (place where you breed Pokemon) in the Wild area. Close-by you will see 2 siblings providing to collect some treasure for you, if you pay them Watts. There are 2 kinds of digging, Skill and Stamina, each of which supplies various rewards. Speak to the left (ability) sibling, and he will charge you 500 Watts to collect treasure. The amount he can collect differs and is random. Normally you will get at least 2-3 items, however you can get triple or almost double that. The following are a few of the items you can get from the Skill digger: Shiny Stone, Dawn Stone, Sun Stone, Comet Fragment, and Rare Bone. Consult with the right (stamina) bro, and he will charge you 500 Watts to collect treasure. The following are a few of the items you can get from the Stamina digger: Smooth Rock, Bag Of Stardust, and Dawn Stone. This is a great place to find great deals of treasures and Evolution Stones.

Clc0904, Dec 5, 2019

Extra Pokemon boxes

There will be 8 boxes to save Pokemon in when initially accessing the Pokemon Storage system using the Pokemon Box Link or Rotomi. If you put a minimum of one Pokemon inside each box, and after that leave the storage system and return, more boxes will be unlocked. This technique can be duplicated up until all 31 boxes have actually been unlocked. Each of the 31 boxes can hold 30 Pokemon, permitting an overall of 930 Pokemon to be kept on one save file.

Tigersam, Dec 5, 2019

Catching Pokemon Strategy

Capture Nincada on Route 5 outside Turffield. At Level 10, it acquires the False Swipe move, which leaves Pokemon with 1 HP. You can find a Level 10 Nincada in the high lawn as a random "!" encounter early in the game. The leveled-up Ninjask also has False Swipe, however they are harder to find in the Stony Wilderness area of the Wilds.

Get a Gallade with False Swipe and Hypnosis to capture Pokemon a lot easier. Start by capturing Ralts in the Wilds. This little Pokemon is discovered in the Dappled Grove, Rolling Fields, and South Lake Miloch (essentially throughout the southern area of the Wilds). Make certain to capture a Male Ralts, then reach -- Level 20 to evolve into Kirlia. Next, use a Dawn Stone on Kirlia to evolve into Gallade. This Pokemon can discover the False Swipe and Hypnosis moves. Ralts/Kirlia discovers Hypnosis at Level 9. This is a non-damaging move that puts enemies to sleep. Gallade discovers False Swipe at -- Level 23. This assaults constantly leaves Pokemon with 1 HP. Gallade can also discover the Thunder Punch move, which is very beneficial and typically incapacitates the target. Later on in the game, Thunder Punch will be readily available for sale at the Pokemon Center in Wyndon. In addition, if you select to breed Gallade, it is possible to get the Mean Look Egg move, which avoids targets from running away. That move is essentially needed for a few of the tougher-to-catch Pokemon. It is not needed for Legendary Pokemon.

Chances of seeing a Shiny Pokemon

In addition to using the Shiny Charm, there are a couple methods to enhance your possibilities of experiencing a Shiny Pokemon. The possibilities of seeing a Shiny Pokemon increase depending upon the number of a specific Pokemon you beat in battle. The opportunities of seeing a Shiny Pokemon significantly increase depending upon the number of the very same Pokemon you battle in a row.

If you are hunting for a Shiny Yamper, your opportunities will increase for the international number of Yamper Pokemon you have actually come across and beat, as well as the number of Yamper Pokemon you have actually fought in a row. The counter will reset if you battle any other type of Pokemon. The very best way to hunt for Shiny Pokemon remains in the wild, where you will see the Pokemon roaming around. You can then attempt to eliminate the very same type as typically as possible. Battling the exact same Pokemon in a row needs you to really beat the Pokemon and not escape.

Increasing Brilliant Pokemon possibilities while fishing

Fishing can increase your opportunities of coming across Brilliant Pokemon (Pokemon with a yellow aura that know an Egg Move). This method varies from the basic encounter chaining, which is based upon the variety of times you have actually fought any one specie and does not matter at all for fishing. Rather, you merely require to beat as lots of Pokemon consecutively as possible, no matter which types appears. The chain will break if you stop working to reel a Pokemon in, if you capture a Pokemon, escape from a Pokemon, leave the area, or switch off the game. The variety of effective hooks goes towards your opportunities of coming across a Brilliant Pokemon. The following is a list of the increased opportunities of experiencing a Brilliant Pokemon when fishing:

  • 1. Fantastic Pokemon might appear 0-- 2 effective hooks.
  • 2. Fantastic Pokemon have 1.3 x the possibility of appearing with 3-6 effective hooks.
  • 3. Fantastic Pokemon have 3.3 x the possibility of appearing with 7-14 effective hooks.
  • 4. Dazzling Pokemon have 6.6 x the probability of appearing with 15-24 effective hooks.
  • 5. Dazzling Pokemon have 16.6 x the possibility of appearing with 25+ effective hooks.

A easy way to earn XP

A easy and great technique to earn XP and level up rapidly is by finishing Max Raids. Max Raids are cooperative battles where you and 3 other trainers battle a huge Dynamax version of a random Pokemon. Max Raids are started by communicating with Raid Dens--- stone dens discovered all throughout the Wilds area. The much deeper in the Wilds, the higher the star score the Raid Dens will be. Higher star ranked Max Raids are harder, however they provide much better rewards. You can quickly determine Gigantamax Pokemon by trying to find the intense beams shooting up--- if a beam has swirling energy around it, that implies it is a very tough Max Raid with a Gigantamax Pokemon. Max Raids frequently reward individuals with an Exp. Candy item. Offering Exp. Candy to your Pokemon will provide free XP, and if you have a lot of these in your stock, you can quickly level up a wanted Pokemon.

Exp. Candy is available in variations varying from XS (Extra Small) to XL (Extra Large), however all types work. Max Raids are also a great way to find rare Pokemon. Max Raids do not provide XP for finishing them. You just get Exp. Candy and great deals of items. To complete Max Raids faster, play solo (do not invite online trainers), go to "Settings" and disable "Battle Animations", and use Exp. Berries and Rare Candy to level up. Furthermore, you can replay Max Raids several times if you stop working, and raids will reset every 12-24 hours. You need to clear the Wilds of all beams to spawn more. Often they will appear in top-level locations--- just 5 Star Raids are tough, however with the right match-up, you can complete those solo. Keep in mind: When Max Raids are played solo with NPC trainers, they appear to have a 100% catch rate at the end of a battle. It is much lower if you are not the host--- visitors just appear to have a 10% opportunity of catching with a basic Pokeball.

After finishing the game, you can re-challenge Gym Leaders and Championship Trainers for easy and fast XP. You can also combat the highest-level Pokemon possible. Select a top-level effective Pokemon as the leader of your team, and fill the remainder of the 5 slots with Pokemon you wish to level up.

Max Raids Guide 5-Star battles

Soloing Max Raids gets tricky when you come across 5-Star battles. These are the hardest battles in the game-- limit Raid Pokémon you battle will assault numerous times per turn, and can summon an effective shield at 50% health. The battle will end if 4 Pokémon are downed, or if you take more than 10 rely on end up the battle. To make Max Raid battles much easier, follow these basic steps.

Get To Level 100
In solo Max Raids, your NPC trainers will constantly join at 70% of your present level. NPC trainers will be Level 70 if you're Level 100. That's the highest level they can be, and more levels make these battles a lot easier to complete.

To rapidly farm up levels, just use Exp Berries from Max Raids, or farm the Battle Tower. Using rental teams suffices to win and earn lots of Rare Candy.

Use The Best Pokémon You Can-- Legendary
The Legendary Pokémon have (essentially) the very best stats in the game. After ending up the story, you'll have Eternatus. I suggest using him for a lot of 5-Star Max Raid battles. He's easy to use, can squash enemies, and has excellent defense.

You can boost his stats with Vitamins to quickly increase the Attack or Special Attack stats. The more damage you do the much better. Take Full Advantage Of Special Attack with the right vitamins, get to Level 100 with Eternatus, and you'll have the ability to manage most Max Raids.

With Lvl. 100 Eternatus, you can get 170 Attack power, and his Signature Move power doubles for Max Raids. He's remarkably strong.

Boost Attack Power With Held Items
You can increase your Attack or Special Attack power by 50% with the right Held Item. For Eternatus, you'll wish to boost his Special Attack-- there are 2 items you'll wish to keep an eye out for.

  • Option Specs: +50% Special Attack. Discovered in Spikemuth.
  • Option Band: +50% Attack. Discovered on Route 2.

Now that you've got a super-powered Eternatus, all you require to do is farm Raids to earn endless effective Exp Candies to level up any other Pokémon you may require for raids. You may require a Lvl if you can't win a 5-Star Raid with Eternatus. 100 Pokémon that's very efficient. That's the only real technique you require.

Leveling up EVs

By sending out Pokémon on Poke Jobs, they can earn an insane amount of EVs (Effort Values) with special Power Items and the Pokerus Virus. You'll earn x6 the normal amount of EVs when they return from a Poke Job if a Pokémon has both.

How To Farm Fast EVs: The procedure is incredibly basic. Gear up a Pokémon with a Power Held Item, contaminate them with the Pokerus Virus, send them on a long Poke Job, and they'll return with an insane amount of EVs. Opt For Poke Jobs that particularly train particular stats. The description will let you know!


  • A normal Pokémon sent out on an 8-Hour Poke Job will return with +32 EVs.
  • A Pokémon with Pokerus & a Power Held Item will return with +192 Evs.

KEEP IN MIND: You can inspect your EVs by going to the Pokémon Summary page, and press [X] on the stat screen.

Getting Power items is easy. Getting the Pokerus Virus? That's a lot harder. Let's discuss both.

How To Get Power Items: Power Items are special Held Items you can get in Hammerlocke. They're offered in the southern Pokémon Center, and can be bought from the BP Vendor-- they cost 10 BP each.

You'll earn BP in the Battle Tower, a feature that opens after triumphing. Complete great deals of battles, and you'll have the ability to get any of the Power Items. There's one for each stat.

What Is Pokerus?: Pokerus is a special infectious infection that triggers Pokémon to get EVs much faster. You'll arbitrarily contract Pokerus, and it infects surrounding Pokémon in your team.

Pokerus can be treated by checking out the Pokecenter, and once a Pokémon has actually been treated of Pokerus it can never ever contract it once again. To prevent that, instantly place any contaminated Pokémon in your Box-- that way, you can quickly spread out the infection later on.

Just switch a contaminated Pokémon into your party in between 2 other Pokémon and bike around up until it spreads out. Using recovery items will not treat Pokerus, so just prevent the Pokecenter! Pokerus just lasts 1-to-4 days, so it's essential that you spread out the effect or you may lose it permanently.

How To Get Pokerus: Pokerus is a very rare drop-- more rare than Shiny Pokémon. You can contract Pokerus just by coming across a Wild Pokémon with Pokerus, or by trading. 1-in-20,000 Wild Pokémon will have the Pokerus Virus, so it's all based upon luck. Combating or recording a Wild Pokémon with Pokerus suffices to contract the infection.

One stat will increase much faster than others, while another will increase slower. Altering your nature indicates you can even more tailor your Pokemon and take full advantage of the stats you require. To alter a Pokemon's nature, use the Nature Mint special item.

All Nature Mints expense 50 BP each and are cost the Battle Tower supplier.

Combo and Ultimate move locations

There are two move tutors that will teach the three starter Pokemon (Scorbunny, Sobble, and Grookey) unique moves. Combo moves are more powerful when used in conjunction with another combo move. Ultimate moves are super-powerful and only available to the final evolution of your starter. The Combo Move Tutor is found in Hammerlocke, near the Route 06 exit. He is at the bottom of the steps on the far left of the town. Only the three Starter Pokemon can learn these moves.

  • Fire Pledge (10 PP / 80 ATT / 100 CC): This move is only available to Scorbunny. The move becomes more powerful when used with Grass Pledge.
  • Water Pledge (10 PP / 80 ATT / 100 CC): This move is only available to Sobble. The move becomes more powerful when used with Fire Pledge.
  • Grass Pledge (10 PP / 80 ATT / 100 CC): This move is only available to Grookey. The move becomes more powerful when used with Water Pledge.

The Ultimate Move Tutor is located in the park area in Ballonlea. Ultimate moves can only be learned by the three final evolutions of the starters.

  • Blast Burn (5 PP / 150 ATT / 90 ACC): This move is only available to Cinderace. The user cannot move on their next turn.
  • Hydro Cannon (5 PP / 150 ATT / 90 ACC): This move is only available to Inteleon. The user cannot move on their next turn.
  • Frenzy Plant (5 PP / 150 ATT / 90 ACC): This move is only available to Rillaboom. The user cannot move on their next turn.

You can revisit the move tutors at any time to obtain your Pokemon moves. You can also obtain them more than once.

Changing weather in Wild Area

The weather condition in each area of the Wild Area is typically randomized based upon your Switch's system date. This can be bothersome given that specific Pokemon will just appear throughout specific weather. If you set your Switch's system date to the indicated date (noted in MM/DD/YYYY format), you will get the matching weather condition in every area of the Wild Area.

Camp toys

To camp, press X and select Pokemon Camp. You can setup camp anywhere outdoors. In the camp, you can have fun with your Pokemon and prepare some curry. Playing boosts your Pokemon friendliness, while cooking heals and provides an XP reward depending upon the intricacy of the meal. By preparing various kinds of curry and filling your Curry Dex, you can unlock extra toys to have fun with at the camp. There are an overall of 8 toys (Poke Toy and Poke Ball are instantly unlocked). The additional toys do not offer any extra advantages. Get this variety of Curry Dex entries to unlock the matching toy:

  • Fresh Ball: 5 Curry Dex entries
  • Weighted Ball: 10 Curry Dex entries
  • Relieve Ball: 15 Curry Dex entries
  • Mirror Ball: 30 Curry Dex entries
  • Tympole Ball: 50 Curry Dex entries
  • Champ Ball: 80 Curry Dex entries

To prepare various kinds of curry, use various components blended with various berry mixes. You can find berry trees all over the Wilds. Attempt shaking berry trees till you have 7-9 berries, then gather them. Berry trees respawn relatively often-- so examine daily to refill your products. Components are offered by green-parka NPCs in the Wilds. Each active ingredient produces a various curry-- so save up and purchase every kind of component possible.

Avoid Berry Tree Encounters

When you find a Berry tree, shake down some berries, and note the leaves of the tree when you're prompted to shake it again. Sometimes, they will begin shaking. If the leaves are shaking fast, then there's a chance that the next time you shake it, you'll fight a wild Pokemon and lose some of the berries. If the leaves are shaking slowly or not at all, then you're safe to shake it again and get more berries. (There are only those three types of shaking: no shaking, slow shaking, and fast shaking.)

Multi-hit Moves vs Dynamaxed/Gigantamaxed Pokémon

Normally, when a Max Raid Dynamaxed/Gigantamaxed Pokémon raises a shield, only the first hit in a multi-hit Move breaks part of the barrier; however, when a multi-hit attack breaks the last fragment of the barrier and therefore the shield as a whole, the subsequent hits do damage normally, taking into account the reduced defenses (unless the Raid Pokémon has Contrary) caused by the shield breaking. This can bring the Max Raid Pokémon down to the next shield threshold or even defeat them outright (if the destroyed shield was the final one) without waiting an additional turn.

B-L-Howell, Jul 28, 2020

One-Hit KO Moves against Max Raid Pokémon

Against Dynamaxed/Gigantamaxed Pokémon, there are certain Moves that outright do not work, among which there are the One-Hit KO Moves (so the Moves that fully deplete the target's HP regardless of your own offensive Stats or their defensive ones), like Horn Drill or Fissure.

However, there is an exception where this category of Moves actually works against such Pokémon: in Max Raid Battles, *only when the Max Raid Pokémon has a shield up*, if you manage to land these Moves, 2 fractions of the barrier will be depleted, instead of the usual 1; other than using a Max Move yourself, this is the only other way to destroy 2 fractions of the shield in one blow, potentially making the battle go faster.

Note that, if you use these Moves against the Raid Pokémon when it doesn't have a shield up, the Move will not work, just like when it's used against a Dynamaxed/Gigantamaxed Pokémon in a non-Max Raid Battle, so only use this to break shields faster.

Stopping Wild Ditto in Max Raid Battles from transforming into a Dynamaxed

Normally, in Ditto Max Raid Battles, the Wild Ditto transforms into a Pokémon the participants are using at random, but in its Dynamax Form, making the battle more challenging and take longer to complete; however, this process can be stopped if all participants use Pokémon that cannot Dynamax, therefore the Ditto cannot transform into a Dynamax version of them, meaning it keeps its very low Stats and cannot even attack, making the Max Raid Battle much easier and quicker to complete; these Pokémon are Zacian, Zamazenta and Eternatus.

Chain Fishing for Brilliant Pokémon

With Fishing you can increase your possibilities of experiencing Brilliant Pokémon (Pokémon releasing a yellow aura, which know an Egg Move). Varying from basic Encounter Chaining, the variety of times you have actually fought any one specie will not matter at all for fishing; rather, you'll merely require to beat as lots of Pokémon consecutively as you can, no matter which specie appears. The chain will break if you stop working to reel a Pokémon in, if you capture a Pokémon, escape from a Pokémon, leave the area or switch off your game. The variety of effective hooks goes towards your opportunities of coming across a Brilliant Pokémon, and the limits are as follows.
