Pokemon BDSP Poketch App Locations

The Poketch is an essential wearable that all trainers need to have to access other apps and features in the game as well as use hidden moves that make moving around the world of Pokemon BDSP much easier.

How to Unlock the Poketch

Players are introduced to the Poketch watch early on in their adventure and then it’s just a matter of completing a few prerequisites to obtain the watch.

You need to head over to Jubilife City and go talk to your old friend who is inside the Trainers School. Hand over his mom’s parcel and he will give you a Town Map.

After that you need to roam around Jubilife City and once you reach the middle area, the head of the Poketch Company will come and talk to you.

He will ask you to bring him 3 coupons from 3 clowns who can be found around the different areas of the city. You need to find all 3 of these clowns and answer “Yes” to their questions.

Clown Locations

  • The first clown can be found standing around the Northern side of the city, near the Pokemart.
  • The second clown can be found around the TV Station in Jubilife City. You need to look around the Jumbotron to locate him.
  • Take a left from the TV Stations and you will soon reach the Poketch offices where the third clown will be standing.

Once you’ve gathered all three coupons, go and talk to the President again to unlock the Poketch Watch.
