After completing the game, you can obtain one of the key items to getting shiny Pokemon - here's our guide to getting the Oval Charm in Pokemon Sword and Shield.

The Oval Charm is a much sought out item for Pokemon Sword and Shield users, as it becomes very helpful when breeding Pokemon.

The post-game of any Pokemon game is full of new adventures and obtainable objects for players to find, this is where players discover brand new areas and people and LVL up their Pokemon even further.

This is no exception in Pokemon Sword and Shield, the post-game content this around is one of the most diverse and content filled ones of all Pokemon games.

One of the first things players should do as soon as they beat the game is going and obtain the Oval Charm.

This item will drastically increase the chances you have in receiving an egg from the Pokemon Daycare so any Shiny Pokemon hunter should pay close attention.

What Is An Oval Charm?

The Oval Charm increases the chances of an egg appearing at a nursery when breeding Pokémon.

It will make it much faster for when you're breeding for perfect IVs or trying your hand at the Masuda Method to get a shiny Pokémon.

Circhester City

After you beat the Pokemon League and become the new Pokemon champion of the Galar Region, you are going to want to head to Circhester City. Which you may remember as the snowy city in the Galar Region and the home of the sixth gym leader Gordie.

Once there you are going to want to make your way to the right side of the hotel which is in the center square of the city. Once you are inside the hotel, head up the elevator and go to the first door on your right and there will be a NPC dressed up as a police officer.

Shigeki Morimoto 

The NPC that is in the room is Game Freak designer Shigeki Morimoto, he notes that he has been waiting for a strong trainer like yourself and challenges you to a battle. At first, his team may surprise you as it will be overpowered if you are coming right off the Pokemon League and of course, he will Dynamax his last Pokemon. All of his Pokemon are LVL 65!

  • Cursola (Galar Region Form)
  • Grapploct
  • Stonjourner
  • Coalossal
  • Dragapult
  • Snorlax - Will Dynamax

This battle will be a double battle set inside a stadium so be aware of that before you head into battle. Once you defeat him he will grant you the Oval Charm! Goodluck!
