If you enjoy a spot of breeding in the Pokemon games — perhaps using the Masuda Method to increase your chances of getting a shiny — then you’ll definitely want to get your hands on the Pokemon Sword and Shield Oval Charm. This helpful Key Item makes it more likely that you’ll receive an Egg from the Pokemon Nursery, so here’s what you need to do in order to get your hands on in.
How to get the Oval Charm in Pokemon Sword and Shield
Once you’ve achieved your character’s dream of surpassing Leon to become the Galar region Pokemon Champion, don’t worry, as the adventure isn’t over yet. Pokemon Sword and Shield are both filled with a variety of post-game content and one such feature is the battle against Game Freak staff member Morimoto.
This Pokemon game developer can be found on the second floor of Hotel Ionia in Circhester. Challenging Morimoto results in a two vs. two format battle, though be warned that it’s no cakewalk since he has a full team of six Level 65 Pokemon. Expect to encounter the following when you confront Game Freak Morimoto, which can be done once every real-world 24 hours.

If you can defeat Morimoto, you’ll gain the Oval Charm as a reward. The charm will passively boost your chance of getting Eggs from the Pokemon Nursery just by sitting in the Key Items section of your Bag. If you’re looking to start breeding Pokemon seriously and possibly take to the competitive online battling scene now that you’ve become a Pokemon Champion, you’ll want to grab it as soon as possible.
With the Pokemon Sword and Shield Oval Charm now in your grasp, you can start enjoying the Nintendo Switch title’s endgame to its fullest.
