1/3: Start from the Tower of Waters in Challenge Beach. With your back to the entrance, turn left and swim into the water. Go straight ahead, while keeping close to the mainland on the right. When you're parallel to Honeycalm Island, there's a secluded shore. It's burrowed to the right of the Pokémon Den here.2/3: From Diglett 1, go further into the enclosed area. It's next to some pebbles just past the gold item ball.3/3: From Diglett 1 and 2, head into the sea and swim until you're halfway to Honeycalm Island, then stop. Now turn right and travel while parallel to the mainland. You should reach an islet between a trio of rocky islands and the mainland. There's nowhere it can hide...

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 currently-released Isle of Armor (and in the future, it will cover the Crown Tundra).

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.
