Pokemon Sword and Shield - How to obtain Mints

Details on Mints in Pokemon Sword and Shield. Included are an overview, location, and a list of mints and their effects.


Mints are supplements that modify a Pokemon’s growth rate. Keep in mind that only the most recently given mint will have a lasting effect on the Pokemon. The effects of mints are not cumulative, which means that you can have one boon and one bane for every five stats. Mints have no effect on a Pokemon’s HP.

Where to find

Mints can be found in the Battle Tower. One way to get them is to reach milestones by achieving certain feats like winning some battles in a row. Another way to get them is to use Battle Points at the BP shop. Each mint costs 50 BP, so you need to decide which one to buy when starting out carefully. Similar to other BP items, you unlock mints after completing the main story.
