Why should players battle other trainers?

As mentioned above, you will be able to battle against other trainers and their Pokémon in the game. When you win the battle, your Pokémon will gain experience points. Once they have gained enough experience points, they will be able to level up. This means that their battle statistics will improve. Additionally, they will learn new battle techniques.

Once your Pokémon has reached a certain level, they will be able to evolve into a more powerful Pokémon. Subsequently, you can fight stronger trainers and Pokémon.

Even though Pokémon Sword and Shield offers you various areas to discover, it is recommended that you battle other trainers. If you do not battle others, your Pokémon will not be able to level up. This means that you cannot progress in the game.

Shiny Pokémon

One of the types of Pokémon you will find while exploring the Galar region, is the Shiny Pokémon. It is important to note that they have different coloration than the normal Pokémon. However, their statistics do not differ from the other Pokémon.
