Where To Find & Catch Pikachu In Pokemon Sword & Shield
Pikachu can be found on Route 4 during the day and night. It is a rarer Pokemon and hard to see in the yellow grass. Try to keep an eye out for the brighter yellow ears of Pikachu while you are in the area. If you don’t see one, head to town and come back.
Pikachu is very fast and is an Electric type. It’s a good idea to use a Ground Pokemon. Ground is strong against Electric so a Ground Pokemon should be able to take plenty of hits without being incapacitated. However, you need to be careful not to kill Pikachu. Avoid using Ground moves if possible, sticking to normal moves to lower Pikachu’s HP so you can catch it more efficiently.
Lower Pikachu’s HP as much as possible before tossing off a ball and you should catch Pikachu easily.
