Now that you are all done with Hammerlocke, you’re all ready to head on to Route 6. Here’s a guide to help you prepare for Pokemon Sword and Shield Route 6 and get all the collectibles and Items.
Pokemon Sword and Shield Route 6
From Hammerlocke, walk across the bridge and you will run into two Team Yell grunts. You’ll need to defeat these two in battle which is pretty simple. But the grunts got Dark type pokemon, which can be easily taken out using a Fighting-type pokemon. The pokemon they use are:
- Level 29 Stunky (Poison/Dark)
- Level 30 Linoone (Dark/Normal)
- Level 30 Liepard (Dark)
Now once done with the foolish fight, let Hop talk once again after which Opal appears and introduces herself before you can explore again.
You’ll again engage in another battle, this time against Beauty Anita and her two Fairy type pokemon, Clefairy and Clefable. You should use poison or steel type pokemon to gain the upper hand here.
In the First grass patch, you’ll find 3 Ultra Balls. Just jump off the cliff at the lighter area to get to them. Keep up the route until you reach the Ladders.
The first one leads to a small fishing hole where you’ll find nothing of interest. The second leader will take you to the next city, so its better to skip it for now and explore the remaining route 6.
Walk up to the two doctors, Medical Team Iwan and Evelyn, and you’ll start a double battle. The doctors will use a Togetic, for which you can use a Fire-type, and a Pawniard, for which you can use an Electric-type for an easy and quick battle.
Go up the ladder to the left and battle Backpacker Diane and hit her Swak with Flying or Psychic attacks. In the rock upstairs from Backpacker Diane you can find Fossils. Fossilized Dino in Sword and Fossilized Fish in Shield.
Continue up the next ladder, the one on the left of Model Nicola and you’ll find yourself in a dig site where you can get TM15 Dig on your right.
As you now head back, take the lower Ladder all the way on the left and pick up the Light Clay. Use the ladder on the right and after fighting Model Nicola’s Skourpi and Pawniward, you’ll find two rare bones to the left of Model Nicola.
Before heading into the Canyon, wrap around the cliff and get down the ladder to fight Backpacker Ruth and her Throh, a fighting type weak to Flying and Fairy-type pokemon.
Shake the nearby berry tree and then head through the patch of grass and off the small ledge, to get the TM30 Steel Wings. Walk back up and go down the shorter ladder to get a Rare Candy.
Return to the higher level and run down the canyon path. See this trainer is smart, they picked a spot in the shade. Although he can do without the bug eyes.
Artist Duncan has a Koffing that knows Self-Destruct, so your first Pokemon should be hefty one with good HP to withstand the attack! Sudowoodo is his second Pokemon, a Rock-type weak to Water. From there, walk past the Dugtrio monument and head up the stairs into Stow-on-Side.
