Pokémon Sword & Shield – Rillaboom Moveset Guide

Rillaboom is one of the best Pokémon in competitive play because of its Ability and access to Grassy Glide. Rillaboom’s Ability is Grassy Surge, which sets up Grassy Terrain that heals every Pokémon (that isn’t Flying-type or levitating) by 1/16th of their HP and boosts the power of Grass-type moves. This means Rillaboom gives itself (and a potential teammate) free health recovery while retaining its access to powerful Grass attacks. Rillaboom is proficient both in Singles and Doubles formats, making it a great choice to add to your team!

Pokémon Sword & Shield – Watt & Money Farming Guide

With the release of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl just around the corner, Sword & Shield’s time in the spotlight will soon be coming to a close.

Pokémon Sword & Shield – Dynamax Adventure Guide

Prior to the release of Pokémon Sword & Shield’s DLC packs, the games were criticized for having very little to do after the completion of the main storyline. Fortunately, the second DLC pack – The Crown Tundra – almost completely fixes this, as it gives players the opportunity to catch or shiny hunt almost fifty Legendary Pokémon either solo or with friends. Dynamax Adventures are the reason to play The Crown Tundra, and they’re the most fun cooperative game mode Pokémon has ever seen (at least at the time of writing). There’s a lot to explain here – including some information that hasn’t previously been documented online – so buckle up and prepare for a long read.

Pokémon Sword & Shield – Shiny Hunting Guide

By all accounts, trainers looking for Shiny Pokémon are better off hatching eggs. That being said, hunting Wild Pokémon comes with a slew of potential benefits that you can’t get through any other shiny hunting methods — these include marks and square sparkles. Marks, in particular, are rather interesting; Pokémon that have them can be given custom titles that appear whenever they’re called upon in battle! If you’re looking for the best way to hunt Wild Shiny Pokémon, look no further!
