Every Pokemon Trainer in Pokemon Sword and Shield wants to look their best and feel their best when battling Pokemon and other Trainers with style and flair. Here’s how you can turn your character from plain Jane at the beginning of the game to fabulous trendsetter and change appearance in Pokemon Sword & Shield.
How to Change Appearance in Pokemon Sword & Shield
At boutiques found in every city, simply approach the cashier and select the tops, jackets, pants, dress (for the female Trainers), socks, shoes, cap, glasses and gloves you want to put together. After you’ve purchased the clothes, go to the fitting room and customize your outfit.
If you thought you had to keep your jacket on throughout the entire time, fret not. Simply press the A button to slip it off. This way, you can see the design of your shirts.
When you go to the salon — so far, only two salons have been found in Motostoke and Hammerlocke — not only can you change your hairstyle and hair color, but you can also change your makeup and eye contacts, which now have more color options than in previous Pokemon games. And for the first time ever, you can choose patterns to make your Trainers pop out more, no pun intended.
Here’s a full set of eye colors and patterns to choose from.
You can change your eye color for a tune of $1,000.
That’s all you need to know about how to change appearance in Pokemon Sword & Shield.
