So what happens once you have completed Pokémon Sword and Shield and is there any post-game? Here’s what you need to know about it.
In Pokemon Sword and Shield, there are many adventurous things to do. The main story is just the start of the adventure. When you have completed the game by winning the championship, you will have various opportunities for starting a new adventure. You can train your favorite Pokemon team, complete your Pokedex by catching the legendary Pokemon, and play online multiplayer raid battles or player versus player showdowns. Sword and Shield might lack some content in post-game unlike its predecessors but there are many interesting things to do as well.
In this guide, we will tell you what interesting things you can do after becoming a new Pokemon champion. We will list down all the special challenges you can take part in and the rewards you will get from them. We will list things in order so that it will be easy for you to know what to do first.
After becoming the champion, you will visit Professor Magnolia and she will give you a Master Ball. Master Ball is a unique type of Poke Ball through which you can catch any Pokemon. it has a 100% guaranteed result of catching any Pokemon. So you will have to think wisely to decide which pokemon you want to catch through Master Ball. It will be a waste if you will use Master Ball to catch any ordinary Pokemon, so be sensible and save it to catch a Legendary Pokemon. Just wait for the opportunity to catch a Legendary or Mythical Pokemon and when you are able to catch a Legendary use the Master Ball.
Charmander is a very loving first-generation Pokemon, as everybody who played the previous version of Pokemon knows in their hearts that Charizard is one of the best first-gen starter Pokemon. Wouldn’t it be exciting if you get Charizard in Pokemon Sword and Shield? In Pokemon Sword and Shield, Leon has a Charizard. When you will start the game to become a champion, you will visit Hop’s house to play your first Pokemon battle.
Inside Hop’s house, you will meet with Leon and he will give you a Pokeball as a gift inside the Pokeball is a Charmander. it will have the power to Gigantamax when it will be fully evolved. When it will reach level 16, it will emerge as Charmeleon and at level 36 it will emerge as Charizard. This is the easiest way to get a hand on a Gigantamax Pokemon rather than to fight one in a Max Raid battle.
As you know there is always a legendary or mythical pokemon to catch just like the previous versions of Pokemon. Pokemon Sword and Shield have a less powerful Legendary Pokemon as compare to its previous versions. When you will complete the story there will a slot left in your Pokedex for the Legendary. It will be Zacian or Zamazenta depending on the version of your game.
Those who are playing Sword will be able to catch Zacian, and the Shield players will get their hands on Zamazenta. In order to find and catch your Legendary Pokemon, you will have to go to the Slumbering Weald area and go to the shrine. There will be one battle with Hop at the shrine and after the battle, you will be able to catch one of the two Legendary Pokemon. It will be best to use your Master Ball while catching the Legendary Pokemon.
Pokemon Sword and Shield have a lot of challenging battles in it. In order to get the rare league cards, you will have to fight a Dynamax battle. You will have to talk to the gym leader and take on a special battle against the most powerful Dynamax Pokemon. It is like a single-player raid battle. When you will win the battle the gym leader will give you a rare league card as a reward. This card will have the gym leader’s sign on it.
In order to face these super hard battles, we recommend you to have any Legendary and Mythical Pokemon, or have your Pokemon boosted to become a giant beast with a Gigantamax evolution.
We are listing here all the rare league cards you can find and their location, so it’s easy for you to get them.
That’s all the post-game content that is available to play in Pokémon Sword and Shield. The games are available now for the Nintendo Switch.
