Wild Area

Features

The Wild Area is the big open area in the Galar Region. It's connected to multiple towns and cities and features a diverse range of locations and styles including torn apart areas, lakes, fields and more.

This area has full camera control and allows for you to explore unincumbered by restrictions in the areas. However, you will often find Pokémon higher than you can catch it. These can be good to battle for experience but will not be able to be caught or be shiny

Throughout the Wild Area you may also find Pokémon Dens that house Max Raid Battles.

Pokémon

You will encounter wild Pokémon on the field in the Wild Areas. However, the Pokémon you encounter will vary depending on your location in the Wild Area as well as the weather. If it's raining, for example, more Water-type Pokémon will appear

Pokémon typically react differently to you based on the species. Some will charge at you, others will run away. You can approach them slowly using the Control Stick or whistle to attract their attention.

After you become champion, all the Pokémon in the Wild Area change from being their native level to being Level 60 or above.

Weather

Through the Wild Area is varying weather. This weather will activate the in-game effects of the weather such as Rain adding Rain, Snow adding Hail and Thunder Storms adding both Rain and Electric Terrain. This changes frequently and Pokémon within each area change based upon the weather

Day Care

In Bridge Field in the Wild Area, you will find a Pokémon Nursery. Here you can have another place look after two Pokémon in the hope that they can produce an egg or pass on moves to eachother. This is in addition to the Route 5 Nursery.

Watts

Watts are a currency found within the Wild Area. You can get them from finding unused Pokémon Dens where you get a small amount (30 - 200) for dens without Raid Battles and a larger amount (300 - 2000) when a Den has got a Max Raid Battle within it.

Across the Wild Area, you will find various vendors who will sell you items in exchange for Watts. These are mostly just Technical Records but als include a few Poké Balls for 50 Watts and a Wishing Piece to trigger a raid for 3,000 Watts. You can also spend Watts for the Digging Duo to find even more items.

You can even spend the Watts at Watts Traders to improve your bike's speed. This costs 1,000, 3,000 and 5,000 Watts. This allows for you to boost for longer with your Bike.

You can even customise your outfit and your tent.

Rotom Rally

The Rotom Rally is a way to get from place A to B in a quick and fun way. If you select Rotom Rally at any of the Watts Traders, you can go to another trader through a set course. These courses have various Rotom balloons dotted around. The white ones give you a boost while the red ones give you a 15 second boost to the countdown timer

You can't interact with wild Pokémon during the rally, but if you collide with them they will slow you down.

There are three rewards to collect for Rotom Rally:
The first time you will get TM14, get a score of 20,000 or higher for TM80 and complete it 11 times for a Fast Ball.

NPCs

In the wild area, you will often find other NPCs including a Pokémon Breeder and some hikers. When you talk to them, you will often get offered to purchase an item they have fished up or found for 100 Watts. These are often idtems that you can sell on. You will also find one Pokémon Breeder who you can battle repeatedly, with her team increasing strength as you progress.

Strong Pokémon

As stated before, there are wild Pokémon that are higher level than you usually. Dotted around the Wild Area, away from the patches of grass, there are numerous strong Pokémon that can be discovered. These Pokémon vary depending upon the weather, much like the standard wild Pokémon, and some cannot be find in the wild area from these locations.
