Pokemon Sword and Shield contain a resource called Watts. The easiest way to describe then is a special currency because you can use them with NPCs to get items. In this guide, we will tell you everything you need to know about them.
What Are Watts In Pokemon Sword And Shield?
You can get Watts from Dens in the Wild Area. Dens are the red, glowing rock formations. As long they do not have a beam of light coming from them, you can interact with them by hitting A and will get some Watts. At first, you will get 50 Watts from a Den, but this will increase to 200 Watts when you finish the main story. You also get 300 Watts for taking part in a Max Raid Battle at a Den with a beam of light. This goes up to 2000 Watts when the story is complete. You can also earn some Watts by battling or catching Pokemon with a Gold Brilliant Aura.
Watts can be exchanged with some NPCs in exchange for items. You can find these NPCs in the Wild Area. Some of these NPCs perform important functions, as you can get very rare items from them. You can find a full list of the NPCs who accept Watts below:
- Fisherwoman – located near the lakes – sells Pearls
- Digging Duo – located at Bridge Field – can dig up evolution stones and other rare items
- Watt Trader – located at the Meetup Spot – sells Poke Balls, TRs, Wishing Pieces
