Pokemon Sword and Shield's Galar region is inspired by the United Kingdom, and in that spirit, the games introduce a ghost-type Pokemon that's themed after tea. Sinistea, a teacup, evolves into a whole pot of tea called Polteageist. As far as Pokemon names go, they're some of the best. But they're also cool Pokemon, and it's not too hard to get them if you know where to look and what to do.

Sinistea can be found in Glimwood Tangle, the cool mushroom forest between Stow-on-Side and Ballonlea. You'll have to rustle through the tall grass to trigger an exclamation point to pop up, and Sinistea is among the Pokemon that can show up when the battle starts.

Once you catch a Sinistea, head back to Stow-on-Side and talk to the right-hand man running the marketplace stand. He sells a different "bargain" item every day, most of which are evolutionary items for various Pokemon. The item you're looking for is the Cracked Pot--if he's not selling it today, ask him for his next bargain to see if it'll come tomorrow. One you get it, all you have to do is use it on Sinistea the way you would use an evolutionary stone to get Polteageist.

Polteageist's signature move is Teatime, which forces all Pokemon on the field to eat their berries at once. This can be useful if you think your opponent's Pokemon are holding berries that reduce the damage they'd take from a super-effective move, for example--that way, you can hit the Pokemon head-on for full damage right off the bat.

Pokemon Sword & Shield Guide: How To Evolve Applin

Pokemon Sword & Shield Guide: How To Evolve Applin

There are a number of Pokemon with branching evolution trees, in which various factors can determine if a Pokemon evolves into one form or another. Gloom, for example, can either evolve into Vileplume via a Leaf Stone or Bellossom via a Sun Stone. Pokemon Sword and Shield introduce a new Pokemon with a branching evolution line, but uniquely, it evolves differently based on which version you're playing.

That's only sort of correct, though. Sword and Shield each have an exclusive evolutionary item, and each one can be used to get a different evolution of the grass/dragon Pokemon Applin. In Sword, you can get a Tart Apple to evolve Applin into Flapple, and in Shield, you can use a Sweet Apple to evolve it into Appletun. As the names would imply, this family is all apple-themed. All you have to do is use the Apple on an Applin like an evolutionary stone.

There's a boy on the west side of Hammerlocke who will clue you in to how to evolve Applin, and he'll even give you the respective Apple item. You can also find either a Tart or Sweet Apple under a tree on Axew's Eye in the Wild Area, and they're also one of the many sweets-related rewards for victory at the Battle Cafes in Motostoke, Hammerlocke, and Wyndon. While we haven't been able to test it yet, we assume that you can give an Apple to any other Pokemon to trade with a friend and get the other version's item in your game so you can evolve your Applin as you please. We'll update this story when we can confirm if it works.

Pokemon Sword And Shield: What Are Watts?

Pokemon Sword And Shield: What Are Watts?

Pokemon Sword and Shield are out now on Nintendo Switch, marking the start of the series' eighth generation. While the games very much follow in the footsteps of previous Pokemon titles, they also shake the formula up in some notable ways, introducing a slew of new features and items to the mix.

Among the new additions are Watts. As you explore the Wild Area, you'll notice Max Raid dens scattered about the environment, and interacting with these will net you a number of Watts. So what exactly are Watts, and what are they used for?

What Are Watts?

Essentially, Watts are a secondary form of in-game currency in Sword and Shield. As previously mentioned, you'll primarily earn them from Max Raid dens. If a den is glowing but isn't currently hosting a Max Raid Battle, you'll receive 50 Watts simply by interacting with it (this number will increase to 200 after you've cleared the main storyline). If a Max Raid Battle is occuring at the den, then you'll receive 300 Watts (or 2,000 post-game) before participating in the battle. Watts can also be earned by battling or catching wild Pokemon that are glowing.

As you progress through the game, you can exchange Watts for items and services from certain NPCs around the Wild Area. For example, the Digging Duo near the Pokemon nursery in Bridge Field will excavate items for you for 500 Watts, and the items they can potentially dig up include evolutionary stones and other rare finds. You can also use Watts to upgrade your bike, extending how long you can dash with it, or purchase Technical Records--single-use teachable moves--from different Watt Traders around the Wild Area. These characters are dressed in League clothes, so they'll be easy to spot while you're out in the field.

Below, we've rounded up a list of the different characters in Sword and Shield who accept Watts and the services they provide, so you can easily keep track of where they're located and what they sell. For more on the games, be sure to read our Pokemon Sword and Shield review.
