Pokémon Sword and Shield Motostoke Outskirts - available Pokémon, items and trainers

Our complete walkthrough for Pokémon Sword and Shield.

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.

2020 has seen a few new announcements - such as Mythical Zarude, the ability to transfer Pokémon to Pokémon Home, news of the Sword and Shield Expansion Pass and the release of Gigantamax Toxtricity. Elsewhere, our Pokémon Sword and Shield walkthrough gives an overview of the game. Otherwise, we cover everything from the Wild Area, starters Sobble, Scorbunny and Grookey, lists of all TM locations and TRs, all Galarian forms and the Legendaries Zacian and Zamazenta.

That's everything here for now, so continue on to Motostoke City again for the next steps in your quest, or cycle back to our main Pokémon Sword and Shield walkthrough and guide hub for all the other pages we have like this.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
