Pokemon Sword and Shield Route 3

When you start your journey through route 3 in Sword and Shield, at the very beginning you will be greeted by Lass Rei, she will send out a Vulpix. Before that make sure to check under the tree for a hidden Big Mushroom.


  • Level: 12
  • Type: Fire

We recommend you to go through the grass patch on the left of route 3 which will save you a trainer battle and you will also get three Heal Balls. After that, you will see the Schoolgirl Hannah on the same path just further down. She stops everyone going this way and asks for a fight. You will have to defeat her Pancham to go further.


  • Level: 13
  • Type: Fighting

Then go through the grass patch that will give you hidden Burn Heal to the left. After getting that, get out of the grass and go to the main path until you see Schoolboy Marvin. He will have two Grass Pokemon Budew and Gossifleur and are weak to Fire and Flying respectively.


  • Level: 12

After beating Marvin, you will get to Sonia who is going to provide you an Escape Rope and she will also heal your Pokemon. From there, go south and you will see Schoolgirl Kayleigh and fight her Purrloin and Skwovet.


  • Level: 12

From here you will see a berry tree, you can either shake it and you can collect all that fall from it. If you shake it enough, the tree will throw out a Pokemon and you will have to fight it before you can claim it. It will make you lose half your berries. It’s your choice, risk vs reward.

After that, you can go back and take a north this time. You will have to avoid the postman if you don’t want to face him by walking behind him. But you can also battle him for extra cash and XP. He will throw a Delibird, a very nice route 3 Pokemon.


  • Level: 14
  • Type: Ice/Flying

After that keep going on the same path until you meet Becca in Route 3 with her Pokemon Camp.

You can enter the camp and use it to heal Pokemon and she will also give you Cherry Berry, but after that, you will meet Schoolboy Peter. He will throw Sizzlipede and Dottler to fight.


  • Level: 13
  • Type: Fire/Bug


  • Level: 14
  • Type: Bug/Psychic

After that in the last patch, you will enter the mine and in the bottom left corner, you will find Super Potion.

After that talk to the lady and she will heal up your party and then you can walk to the Galar Mine.
