You can access Giant's Cap by taking the northwest path out of Stony Wilderness. This long trek involves three different sets of grass patches with different Pokémon Encounters along with five Pokémon Dens and a single Berry Tree. You'll also find another Watt Trader here should you need any goods or want to add another route to the Rotom Rally. This aside, Giant's Cap is rather unremarkable and serves as a footnote on your journey through to Hammerlocke.

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.
