Pokemon Sword and Shield is finally here! Released last night for players all across the world players are finally able to explore the Galar region in hopes of becoming the new Pokemon master.

Like any Pokemon game there are certain NPC's that players are able to talk to, and these in-game players grant you unique rewards for simply talking to them!


One of these rewards is obtainable early on in Sword and Shield but players will need to have played Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu or Eevee for the Switch!

Be sure to watch our wide variety of Pokemon content here!

Where Do I Find it!

Early on in Pokemon Sword and Shield, you will eventually have to leave the starting towns and progress towards the next town to battle with the first gym leader in the Galar region.


At the next train station which is located in the Wild Zone area, there are two NPCs a girl and a boy next to the door. Talking to the boy will grant you Eevee if you have played Pokemon Let's Go Eevee at all. Talking to the girl with the blonde hair will grant you Pikachu if you have played Let's Go Pikachu. 

There Pokemon are essentially the same Pokemon you play within the Let's Go versions and thus cannot evolve into one of the many Eevee evolutions or Raichu.
