Pokemon Sword and Shield Battle Cafe locations and usage

Pokemon Sword and Shield’s towns may not be as robust as some found in previous Pokemon games, but they still hold some hidden secrets. One of these is the Battle Cafe, a location that can be used to acquire certain valuable items. In this Pokemon Sword and Shield Battle Cafe guide, we’ll cover where you can find Battle Cafes and what they are used for.

Pokemon Sword and Shield Battle Cafe locations

There are three Battle Cafes in Pokemon Sword and Shield. They can be found in the following locations:

  • Motostoke
  • Hammerlocke
  • Wyndon

When you get to these cities, look for the buildings with a pinkish sign above the door, pictured below. Motostoke’s Battle Cafe is on the left side of the main drag, Hammerlocke’s is west of the central Pokemon Center, and Wyndon’s is on the west side of the city.

You might think a place called the Battle Cafe would have more than one trainer to duel, but only one person can be challenged in Battle Cafes. Once a day, you’ll be able to take on the cafe owner standing behind the counter. You can battle the owner of each cafe every day, giving you three opportunities to earn special rewards. Motostoke’s owner has Level 24 Fairy Pokemon, Hammerlocke’s has Level 37 Fairy Pokemon, and Wyndon’s has Level 47 Fairy Pokemon.

So, what does the cafe owner give you for winning? The main draw of Battle Cafes for many players is the “Sweet” items the cafe owner can give you. The Sweet given to a Milcery before it’s evolved into Alcremie will determine the decoration on Alcremie’s head. Battle Cafes have a chance to reward the following Sweets:

  • Berry Sweet
  • Clover Sweet
  • Flower Sweet
  • Love Sweet
  • Ribbon Sweet
  • Star Sweet
  • Strawberry Sweet

In addition to these Sweets, the cafe owner also has a chance to give you the Sachet and Whipped Dream items, needed for evolving Spritzee into Aromatisse and Swirlix into Slurpuff. Finally, according to Serebii, the cafe owner can drop the following recovery and consumable items:

  • Berry Juice
  • Exp. Candy XS
  • Lava Cookie
  • Lumiose Galette
  • Rage Candy Bar
  • Shalour Sable
