Set in the British-inspired Galar region, Pokemon Sword & Shield are the latest entries in Game Freak’s massively popular monster-catching series. It includes a whole new region to explore, creatures to catch, and Gym badges to collect. Here’s where the Pokemon Nursery is in Pokemon Sword & Shield.
Where the Pokemon Nursery Is in Pokemon Sword & Shield
Just like in past entries in the series, Sword & Shield allow you to leave two Pokemon at a Nursery, where your Pokemon can mingle and even have the chance to produce an egg. This is used primarily for breeding Pokemon with ideal IVs and nature, and you can access this facility pretty early on in the game.
All you have to do is progress through the story until you obtain the Grass badge in Turffield. After that, continue east towards Route 5 and you’ll see a large building right before a bridge. This is the Pokemon Nursery.
You can talk to the woman standing outside the building and leave two Pokemon with her. After that, walk around for a bit and talk to her, and she might give you an egg if both Pokemon were compatible.
If you don’t want to worry too much about compatible types for breeding, you can use a Ditto as well. Ditto will breed with any type of Pokemon, and it doesn’t matter whether it’s male or female.
Later on in the game, you can find another Nursery in the Bridge Field Wild Area, towards the direction of Hammerlocke.
The first one can be found along Route 5, while the second is located in the Bridge Field Wild Area, towards Hammerlocke.
