In all Mainstream Pokemon Games, the Pokemon Daycare is a key aspect. Here, you can leave your Pokemon for a small fee in order for them to be raised outside of your care. If two Pokemon of the same Species or Egg Group are left in a Pokemon Daycare together, they will even produce a Pokemon Egg that the Daycare Owners will gift to your trainer. In Pokemon Sword & Shield
, this remains the same.
Unlike prior Pokemon games, however, there is not one, but two separate Pokemon Daycares that are known as Pokemon Nurseries. One is located on Route 5
, while the other can be found in the middle section of the Wild Area
. Both Nurseries function as Pokemon Daycares of the past, with all the same benefits as past versions. Pokemon Nurseries also have the added benefit of a flat fee for Pokemon to be left there instead of a fee based upon how long a Pokemon is left there, as well as Pokemon being able to pass along Egg Moves
from one parent to another and not just their Egg Pokemon offspring.
