Rare candies are consumable items that raise the level of pokemon by one. While rare candies were quite hard to come by in previous games, they are easier to obtain in Pokemon Sword and Shield.
How to Obtain Rare Candies
Rare candies can be found as you journey across the Galar region.
|Wedgehurst||In the tree to the right of the pokemon research lab.|
|Route 4||Rock near the poke kid wearing a pikachu costume.|
|Hammerlocke||Behind the pokeball statue near the church on the upper level of Hammerlocke.|
|Axew’s Eye wild area||Edge of the water (respawns every 24 hours at midnight). Requires Rotom bike water mode to reach.|
|Route 6||Platform near a pond. The spot is near the ledge where you can find TM30 Steel Wing.|
Max Raid Battles
Rare candies are also possible rewards for winning max raid battles. This requires you to battle wild dynamaxed pokemon with other players to get them. You can also obtain dynamax candies that increase a pokemon’s level when dynamaxed.
Hammerlocke BP Shop
After clearing the game and unlocking the Wyndon Battle Tower, you will be able to purchase rare candies for 20 BP each at the Hammerlocke BP shop. TMs, bottle caps, mints, and held items can also be bought there.
Wyndon Battle Tower
After ranking up to master ball tier in the Wyndon battle tower, you will receive 10 rare candies, 3 bottle caps, and an ability capsule as rewards.
