Giant’s Seat can be found to the east of South Lake Miloch or south of North Lake Miloch and is easily discernible by it’s large stone monolith. You’ll find the Pokémon in this Zone to be far above your own when you first reach the Wild Area for the first time so it may be wise to leave exploration until your Level reaches a minimum of Level 35. There are five Pokémon Dens to explore in this Zone along with another Watt Trader can be found next to the bridge leading from South Lake Miloch.

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.
