Finding Pokemon is what Sword and Shield are all about. As you travel through the game, you will come across all sorts of different Pokemon. But what if you want to find a Dreepy? In this guide, we'll show you where to go to get a Dreepy added to your Pokedex.
Where to find terrifying in Pokemon Sword and Shield
To find Dreepy, you will need to go to Outrage Lake, which you can find on the map between Route 5 and Route 6. The only problem is that Outrage Lake is interrupted by a river. To reach the zone, you must have completed the sixth Gym Challenge, as it will give you a bike that can travel on water, allowing you to access the area.
Dreepy will only appear in the area when the weather is thunderstorm, cloudy or heavy fog. Dreepy is not an Overworld encounter, so you have to watch out for the little exclamation points that may appear, to let you know that a Pokemon is there. When you see one, run within commitment range to start the battle and find out what Pokemon it is. Dreepy has a very small chance of an encounter, so you may have to spend a lot of time in the area before you find one.
There are also reports that you can find the evolution of Dreepy, Drakloak, in the same area, in the same weather conditions, in an Overworld encounter, but I can't confirm that right now.
