In Pokemon Sword & Shield, there are two ways to find Wild Pokemon. The second method is that of Wild Pokemon walking/running directly in the Overworld. This type of Wild Pokemon Encounter was first seen in Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu & Let's Go Eevee, and it now continues into the 8th Generation of Pokemon! All Areas (not including cities and towns) will feature Pokemon roaming in the Overworld, and each of these areas from one to the next will feature different Overworld Pokemon being able to be found. Each Wild Overworld Pokemon of one specific area will each have different spawn rates.
