Pokémon: Sword & Shield

You’ll find East Lake Axewell on the eastern side of the bridge leading from Rolling Fields to Motostoke and in the middle, you may spot another island. This island is a ["Axew" IconAxew’s Eye], a different Zone and you’ll have to wait until you gain the ability to ride in the water before gaining access. For this reason alone, it’s better to avoid spending too much time in East Axewell Lake until you can fully explore it. You’ll find five Pokémon Dens in this Zone along with the entrance to Motostoke and two important NPCs.

Both the Watt Trader and the Camping King can be found just outside the entrance to Motostoke.

Watt Trader

Another Watt Trader can be found just to the left of stairs to Motostoke and using him, you’ll be able to exchange your Watts for various goods such as TRs and Wishing Pieces, beware however that the stock he carries changes daily so if a particular item catches your eye, be sure to snag it.

Camping King

The Camping King can be found beside the Watt Trader and this particular man will offer a host of features such as changing the color of your tent to match the Pokémon you have in the first position and judging your Curry Dex. After making a certain amount of different meals, you’ll unlock more Toys for your Pokémon at Camp so it’s well worth taking the time to fill it.
