Pokemon Sword and Shield Stow-on-Side Walkthrough

Encounters and Shops
When you reach Stow on Side, head into the Pokemon Center and talk to the man on your left side. He will give you two Fossilized Drake for no particular reason. If you wish, you can use these with the Professor on Route 6.

On the left side of the Pokemon center, there are two shops set up by identical twins. The one on the right will sell you a special or hard to obtain item while the guy on the left will request an item and pay out a decent amount of cash for it. Both will change when the day changes.

For example, one day there will be Mystic Water on sale for $3,000 and a $30,000 reward for bringing a Comet Shard. The next day, there will be some other items. You can preview the next item on sale by hitting “Next bargain” in the menu.

On the left side buildings in Stow on Side, walk around and climb up to the roof. There will be a man sitting there who is willing to exchange the Pokemon Maractus for a Hatenna if you have one.

After this is done, head downstairs and talk to Hop who is standing nearby. He will challenge you to a battle with his new Pokemons, Cramorant, Drizzile/Thwackey/Raboot, Toxel and Silicobra.

A fight will ensue and bam! Hop will be defeated again. When Hop’s been defeated, Opal will show up again and thank you for letting her watch your battle. She’ll give you Allister’s league card, who is the gym leader you’ll be facing next.
