How to Easily Catch a Legendary Pokemon In Pokémon Sword and Shield

We will tell you the basic ways of catching Pokemon in Pokemon Sword and Shield. Through this guide, you will know how to catch pokemon easily.

Pokémon Capture Explained

You can only capture the Pokémon that are in the wild. So while you will fight others with their own personal Pokémon, you can’t catch them. You have to find them out in the wild, weaken them, and then capture them. Make sure to stock up on Pokeball especially the good ones.

You will need to grind a lot to capture the higher-level Pokémon. Make sure you train hard to capture the best Pokémon. You also need to keep in mind that the game limits six Pokémon at a time so you will have to manage your inventory.

The trick to capturing a Legendary Pokémon is to weaken them first, just like you do with wild Pokémon. You will need a master ball to capture them, but it is not easily available. The best method to capture is to cast paralyze or sleep on the Pokémon but that won’t work on the higher-level or Legendary Pokémon.


You can capture a Legendary Pokemon by using a Master Ball. Master Ball is a unique Pokeball through which you can capture the Pokemon with a 100% chance on your first try. So be sure to pick a worthy Pokemon that is incredibly hard to capture by using a Master Ball.
