Pokémon Sword and Shield Fossils and Where To Find All of Them
Pokémon Sword and Shield bring a new way to find and capture Fossil Pokémon. Here’s how you can get all of the Fossil Pokémon.
In this guide, we will tell you how to get all the fossils in Pokemon Sword and Shield. Once you are on the path of Stow-on Side, you will meet Cara Liss. This is the point where you can discover Fossils. You have to combine two Pokémon to create a fossil Pokémon. There is a difference between what Pokémon you can get based on your current game version.
As there are two versions of Sword and Shield, each version has two fossils in it. Through this guide, you will be able to know the various combinations of Pokemon Sword and Shield fossils. There is a total of four fossils: Dracovish, Dracozolt, Arctovish, and Arctozolt. You can get them in Pokemon Sword and Shield depending on the version.
How To Get All Pokémon Sword and Shield Fossils
As we told you before that there is a total of four different fossils in Sword and Shield, and you will be wondering that is there any chance to get your hands on all the four fossils because each version has two exclusive fossils. Below we have mentioned the name of fossils with the name of the version of the game.
- Fossilized Bird (Sword)
- Fossilized Dino (Sword)
- Fossilized Drake (Shield)
- Fossilized Fish (Shield)
Obviously, you won’t be able to get all four of these in a single game. The only way to do it is to find someone who has the other version of the game and then trade with them. You can get four different combinations of Pokémon.
- Fossilized Bird + Dino: Arctozolt (Electric/Ice-type)
- Fossilized Bird + Fish: Arctovish (Water/Ice-type)
- Fossilized Drake + Dino: Dracozolt (Electric/Dragon-type)
- Fossilized Drake + Fish: Dracovish (Water/Dragon-type)
To gain the fossil, you can either find one lying on Route 6 near the location of Cara Liss. Additionally, you can also go inside the Stow-on Side Pokémon Center and find a man there. He will be able to give you the second fossil. Cara Liss will be able to use them to create a new fossil Pokémon for you.
The best way to get fossils is to hire the Digging Duo brothers in the Wild Area. You will have to spend 500W on them to do mining for you. Through mining, they will find many rewards for you in addition to fossils.
