Pokémon Sword and Shield walkthrough and guide to your journey through Galar

Our in-progress walkthrough to Pokémon Sword and Shield.

Pokémon Sword and Shield arrive on the Nintendo Switch with a raft of new features, mechanics and systems - as well as, of course, new Pokémon themselves.

Here, in our Pokémon Sword and Shield walkthrough and guide, we'll be gathering together all of our dedicated Sword and Shield guides to specific aspects of the game, as well as a full hub for every page of our currently in-progress walkthrough to Sword and Shield, from Postwick to Wyndon.

Pokémon Sword and Shield walkthrough for your adventure through Galar

Here's every page of our currently in-progress walkthrough for Pokémon Sword and Shield, which details where to find items and wild Pokémon on each route and in each town, as well as any opposing trainers' rosters of Pokémon and their levels.


Do note, though, that as these pages are in-progress so soon after the game's launch - and to begin with will be based on first-hand experience rather than datamines - we won't have confirmed absolutely every wild Pokémon just yet. We've also only played through with Pokémon Sword for now - although we'll be noting Shield-exclusive equivalents wherever possible - so if you spot anything we missed, be sure to let us know!
