Galar Mine No. 1 is your next stop, following straight on from Route 3 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 Galar Mine No. 1 - available Pokémon, items and trainers
Galar Mine No.1 is a short indoor route connecting Route 3 to Route 4, featuring a handful of interesting Pokémon, items and trainers.
Inside the first of Galar's two mines you'll encounter one or two minor forks in the road - be sure to explore them both for a couple of decent items - before you eventually discover that sassy trainer in the purple puffa coat you first saw back in Motostoke.
This jerk is called Bede, and he thinks he's much better than you at training Pokémon. He's here to collect Wishing Stars, for some reason. Teach 'em what's what with a battle!

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.
Bede swept aside, that's largely it!
