Pokemon Sword and Shield are filled to the brim with content, things to do, and a bunch of Pokemon to catch. One of the new additions to the game are Battle Cafes, allowing players to battle a trainer a day for some rewards. This Pokemon Sword Battle Cafe guide will talk you through where to find all Pokemon Sword and Shield Battle Cafe locations, as well as what they do and what to expect at each one.
Pokemon Sword & Shield Battle Cafe Locations
There are three Battle Cafes in the Galar region of Pokemon Sword and Shield. We’ve listed where you can find each of these down below, as well as what to expect when battling the owner inside.
Motostoke Battle Cafe
The Motostoke cafe can be found on the left side of the central strip in Motostoke. Look out for the red sign with what looks like a human head as the logo, just past the Pokemon Center.
Inside, go and speak to the cafe owner behind the counter. He’ll challenge you to a battle. His Pokemon are Fairy-type, but only Lv. 24, so you shouldn’t find it too hard to beat. To make this easier, Fair-types are weak to Poison and Steel-types.
Hammerlocke Battle Cafe – Pokemon Sword & Shield Battle Cafe Locations
The Hammerlocke Battle Cafe can be found on the left-hand side, too. You’ll want to look for the Pokemon Center right by the large castle entrance. Head left from here and once again look out for the shop with the red coffee sign. It’s the middle of the three on this strip.
At this Pokemon Sword & Shield Battle Cafe, the owner will have Lv. 37 Fairy-type Pokemon. To beat this battle easily, make sure you’ve got a Pokemon with Poison or Steel-type moves.
Finally, the Wyndon cafe can once again be found down the path just to the left of the central Pokemon Center. Each of the Battle Cafes in Pokemon Sword and Shield look the same, but you can get a better idea of what you’re looking out for the Wyndon cafe down below.
The owner here once again reps Fairy-type Pokemon, but this time they’re at Lv. 47. Make sure once again you’ve got a powerful Pokemon with Steel or Poison-type moves to make this battle a cinch.
All Pokemon Sword & Shield Battle Cafe Rewards
Upon beating the owner of the Battle Cafe, you’ll be given one of the following items. The main reason you’ll want to come to the Battle Cafe is likely for one of the ‘Sweet’ items at the top of our list. Give one of these to Milcery before it evolves and it’ll change the look of your Alcremie.

- Clover Sweet
- Flower Sweet
- Love Sweet
- Strawberry Sweet
- Berry Juice
- Exp. Candy XS
- Lava Cookie
- Lumiose Galette
- Rage Candy Bar

The other items like Berry Juice, Rage Candy Bars, and more are just handy training items. The Sachet and Whipped Dream items that can be given as a reward for beating the Battle Cafe owners in Sword and Shield are used to evolve Spritzee and Swirlix respectively.
