Pokémon: Sword & Shield


Ben Chard

This bloke is one of the few shopkeepers in the Crown Tundra. If you’re looking to stock up on Poké Balls and cooking items, he’s your man. But if you’re looking for a larger selection of restorative items, you should return to the clerk at Crown Tundra Station (or head back to the non-DLC areas).


Gunk Shot is a strong, physical-based Poison move. But it’s liable to miss.

Item Location
Blunder Policy By the side of the house to the right of Slippery Slope entrance. You need to go around the back of the house.

Welcome to our comprehensive strategy guide for Pokémon: Sword and Shield, the latest entries in the Pokémon video game franchise. Our guide also incorporates all the DLC, including the Isle of Armor and brand new Crown Tundra DLC.

In Sword and Shield, you explore the Galar region, based on the United Kingdom, alongside rivals Hop, Bede and Marnie, with the aim to dethrone the Pokémon League Champion.

The games introduce several new features such as Dynamaxing and Gigantamaxing, functions that increase size and change forms of certain Pokémon; the Wild Area, a large open world with free camera movement; and raids with co-op battling. They also reintroduce features previously seen in Sun and Moon and Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee!, such as regional variants and roaming Pokémon depicted in the overworld.
