Overview

North Lake Miloch can be found to the northeast of the southern part of the Wild Area and features enemies that are higher in Level than those you may find in Axewell Lake and Rolling Fields so caution is advised. This Zone is important due to the fact it connects the southern and northern Wild Areas with the northern region featuring Pokémon designed for the later parts of your adventure. You’ll find four Pokémon Dens on land while another two can be found in the lake itself, requiring the Rotom Bike upgrade to access.

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.
