Events After Completing the Story
|✓ Get the Master Ball||✓ Complete the Post-Game Story|
|✓ Unlock the IV Judge Function||✓ Obtain Type: Null|

|✓ Farm a Lot of Money!|
One of the things you can get from the post-game is a Masterball. You will be able to receive the Master Ball after completing Pokemon Sword or Shield. This game has no Legendary Trio, so be sure and use this Poke Ball on either Zacian or Zamazenta.
After beating the game, the first thing you should prioritize doing is completing the post-game story. After beating the game, this game's legendary mascots become obtainable.
Unlock the Judge Function and you will be able to check your Pokemon's IVs. The Judge Function is obtained by taking on the Battle Tower.
The previous Rose Tower will become the Battle Tower. If you speak with the woman in the left part of the Battle Tower, you will be able to get the Pokemon Type: Null.
You can obtain a special Charmander if you go to the 2nd story of Hop's house. You will return home after seeing the end credit roll, so while you are there, go ahead and pick this Pokemon up.
After becoming the new champion, the Beast Ball can be obtained from one of the vendors in Stow-on-Side. This is a rare Poke Ball, so either hold onto it or use it on a Pokemon you really like.
In order to enjoy all of the content available post game in Pokemon Sword and Shield, you are going to need some extra Poke Dollars. Get some money and buy training items, clothes, and more.
|Content for Max Raid Lovers|
|✓ Obtain the Catching Charm||✓ Catch Legendaries from Max Raids!|
|✓ Obtain a Lot of Wishing Pieces|
The Catching Charm is very useful for players who want to participate in Max Raid battles, as it will increase your catch rate. This items can be obtained from the Circhester Hotel.
Catch the most powerful Pokemon in Max Raid Battles. Max Raids will be much easier with a powerful legendary Pokemon on your team.
You are going to need a whole lot of Wishing Pieces if you want to get through Max Raids most efficiently. Collect as many Wishing Pieces as you can and take on Max Raids with your friends.
|Contents for Players Who Want to Battle|
|✓ Collect All TMs||✓ Collect All TRs|
|✓ Collect all Competitive Training Items||✓ Collect all Battle Items|
|✓ Train Your Pokemon|
If you want to have the best moves at your disposal, you are going to need to collect all TMs, which will give you a ton of control over what moves your Pokemon can choose from.
TRs can only be used once, but are often more powerful than TMs. These will drop from Max Raid Battles, so try your hand many times to collect them all.
|High IV Ditto||Will be a parent for nearly any Pokemon|
|Destiny Knot||If a Pokemon in the Day Care center holds this, 5 of its IVs are passed to its offspring.|
|Everstone||If a Pokemon in the Day Care center holds this, its offspring will have the same nature.|
|Power Item||Will increase the EVs you can obtain from battle by +8. If a Pokemon in the Day Care center holds this, it will pass down the respective IV to an offspering.|
|Oval Charm||Increases the chance of Pokémon Eggs being found at the Nursery.|
|Lucky Egg||If a Pokemon holds this, its Exp. points will increase by 1.5x.|
Collecting these tools will help you make the most out of the Pokemon you are raising. In addition to the bonuses they add on to your Pokemon, they greatly reduce the time involved with training a powerful Pokemon.
Ditto, who can act as a parent for any Pokemon, is a requirement for getting the best eggs. Since parent Pokemon pass on their IVs to their offspring, you will want to have one with the best IVs available.
|How to Catch Ditto||Ditto Trading Board|
Gather up some many items that can be used within battle. Most of these can be traded for BP, which is obtained in the Battle Tower.
Train the Pokemon you wish to battle with. In this game, EVs can be maxed out with Protein and other vitamins, making it relatively easy to boast powerful stats.
|Content for Playing Pokemon Alone|
|✓ Take on The Battle Tower||✓ Compete in Tournaments|
|✓ Collect Rare League Cards||✓ Buy All Clothes|
|✓ Complete the Curry Dex|
If you wish to play by yourself, the Battle Tower is just for you. The opponents you face hold battle items, and fighting with them in succession is a rather difficult challenge. If you believe in your abilities as a trainer, go for it!
You can enter the final tournament from the story again. Much like the Elite Four from previous games in the series, taking these opponents on again is one way to earn som money.
Playing alone, you may also want to try and collect all rare League Cards. Once you obtain someone's League Card, you will be able to call that character at the tournament.
