Hammerlocke Hills is the final destination for any Pokémon Trainer undertaking the Gym Challenge and looking to reach Hammerlocke itself. You'll find a Watt Trader and Ingredients Seller at the bottom of the stairs and the majority of the area stretches across the front gates of the city itself. Other than this, Hammerlocke Hills is rather unremarkable in the fact there are no hidden goodies to snag such as the ones you'll find in Lake of Outrage. There are seven Pokémon Dens here however along with two Berry Trees for even more ingredients.

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.
