If you’re looking to add a precious little Wynaut to your Pokemon Sword and Shield collection in the ongoing quest to catch ’em all, then you’ll need to know a few tricks. Getting your hands on this creature isn’t as simple as spotting one in the wild and chucking a Pokeball at it, so stick with our Pokemon Sword and Shield Wynaut guide for everything you need to know.

How to get Wobbuffet in Pokemon Sword and Shield

Wild Wynauts don’t appear in either Pokemon Sword or Pokemon Shield, whether that’s on Routes that connect towns or in the new Wild Area. Their evolved form of Wobbuffet does, however.

Firstly, you need to capture a Wobbuffet that can spawn at these alphabetized locations:

  • Bridge Field
  • Dusty Bowl
  • Hammerlocke Hills
  • Lake of Outrage
  • Motostoke Riverbank
  • Route 5

If you don’t already have a Ditto (learn how to get one here), you might also want to catch a second Wobbuffet of the opposing gender to your first at this point.

With a Wobbuffet now in your party, your focus should shift to finding Lax Incense. This item is vital to the process, so be sure to grab it from the Incense Shop in Hulbury. On the right side of the seafront city, you’ll find a small market where a blonde Herb merchant will sell you Lax Incense for $5,000 Pokedollars.

Once you’ve bought it, have Wobbuffet hold the Lax Incense.

Head to the Pokemon Nursery on Route 5 or in Bridge Field. Once you’re there, speak to the lady outside to place the Wobbuffet holding Lax Incense and either a Ditto or a second Wobbuffet (remember, it has to be of the opposite gender) into her care. Return about 20 minutes later and the lady should give you an egg. Equip the egg to your party and keep traveling until it eventually hatches into your very own Wynaut.

If you’re lucky, you might also encounter a rare 2-Star Raid featuring Wynaut in the Wild Area and be granted a chance to capture it after winning the battle.
