Pokemon Sword and Shield contains 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'll 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. The densities are the bright red rock formations. As long as they don't have a beam of light coming from them, you can interact with them by hitting A and it'll get a few watts. Initially, you'll 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 Raid Max battle in a lair with a beam of light. This goes up to 2000 Watts when the story is complete. You can also earn watts by fighting or catching Pokemon with a shining gold 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 it is possible to obtain very rare items from them. Below is a complete list of NPCs that accept Watts:
- The fisherwoman - located near the lakes - sells Pearls
- Digging Duo - located in Bridge Field - can dig Evolution Stones and other rare items
- Watt Trader - located at the meeting point - sells Poke Balls, TRs, Wishing Pieces
- Watt Trader – con sede a Dappled Grove – vende Poke Balls, TRs, Wishing Pieces

- Watt Trader – situato a Hammerlocke Hills – vende Poke Balls, TRs, Wishing Pieces
- Watt Trader – situato presso Giant’s Seat – vende Poke Balls, TRs, Wishing Pieces

Watts are a great way to pick up essential items like Poke Balls if you're running low, and the Digging Duo is very useful and a great place to spend your Watts. You should definitely take this useful currency as often as possible, as all those 50 Watts will add up over time.
