Motostoke Outskirts is a short connecting route leading west from Galar Mine No.2 in your quest through Pokémon Sword and Shield's main story.
On each page of our walkthrough like this, we'll cover any and all of the obtainable Pokémon, item locations, trainers and their teams that you might come across here, as well as walking you through any key steps of the story, puzzles or challenges along the way.
Where applicable, note that our walkthrough pages will be down into separate sections referring to each of your visits to a given location, seeing as you often backtrack or revisit various places in your quest to become Galar League Champion. And of course if there are any, we'll clearly mark any spoilers, too!
For more explainers, meanwhile, or walkthrough pages on more locations in Sword and Shield, head back to our main Pokémon Sword and Shield walkthrough and guide hub.

Pokémon Sword and Shield Motostoke Outskirts: available Pokémon, items and trainers
There's little to do here on Motostoke Outskirts other than catch a few Pokémon, collect a few items and beat a few trainers.
Be sure to beat the local 'copper, who starts off with a classic "Ello ello, what's all this then?" line. Otherwise there are some feathers to collect on the bridge, too.
