Avoid Strong Pokemon Early On
When you first enter the Wild Area in Pokemon Sword & Shield you will likely be drastically under-leveled compared to some of the bigger creatures out there. It’s probably the easiest tip & trick to follow on this list. Just avoid them.
Some Pokemon might try to chase you down, but if you just stay away most of them won’t even care that you’re around. Also, most of these Pokemon will likely be too high level for you to catch anyway.
You can try battling them, but once you get wiped by a Mudsdale, then you’ll understand why you should avoid these Pokemon. There are a few like Diggersby that aren’t awful, but it’s just best to avoid them completely.
