Route 2

Pokemon Sword and Shield Walkthrough and Guide by warrior13
Thank you for printing this page from to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Pokemon Sword and Shield

After receiving the Pokedex from Sonia, you will need to head north of Wedgehurst on Route 2. As you enter the path, Leon will actually show you how to catch Pokemon and will then gift you will a nice supply of Poke Balls. The goal now is to reach Professor Mangolia's House at the end of Route 2. Of course, there are plenty Wild Pokemon waiting to be captured and loads of trainers looking to battle on your way there. Later in the game, you will be able to reach the other side of the lake with the help of your Bike and Rotom Phone Update.
