Dusty Bowl is yet another large Zone and ranks alongside Stony Wilderness as the largest one in the game. You’ve got lakes, dry grass and normal grass patches here along with the large stone archways that hide a secret. Bring a Galarian Yamask that has surived an attack of at least 49 damage in one battle and take it under it and you’ll be able to evolve it into Runerigus. Dusty Bowl serves as a central point, connecting the two Giant’s Zones and the path toward Hammerlocke Hills so you’ll find yourself here a lot if you enjoy exploring the Wild Area. You’ll also come across nine Pokémon Dens here however there are no Berry Trees to give a shake.
