List of New Items

This page lists all new items to Pokemon Sword and Shield, as well as the items' effects. If you would like to know more about what each new item does, please read on.

Confirmed New Items

Mints: An item that changes a Pokemon's nature

Stats
Up until now, there have been the existence of Pokemon Natures, which can make it easier or more difficult for Pokemon's stats to grow. When battling and selecting your team, you had to carefully select Pokemon with the natures that best suited them for them to reach their potential.

However, in Pokemon Sword and Shield, you can change a Pokemon's nature through the use of Mints. Thanks to this fact, what was previously a long and grueling process of trying to obtain the most useful Pokemon for battle has become much simpler.

Exp. Candy: An item that lets you obtain a ton of exp. points

Exp. Candy is an item that when used allows a Pokemon gain experience points. While the series previous made use of the item Rare Candy, which raises a Pokemon's level by one per candy used, this item actually gives you a set amount of exp., allowing your Pokemon to grow multiple levels at once.

Exp. Candy can be obtained from Max Raid Battles

This item, which is extremely useful for leveling up, can be obtained as a rewards from Max Raid Battles. This is by far the quickest way to level up your Pokemon, and it also lets you avoid XP share, so completing many Max Raid Battles is the key to level farming!

Nutritious Drinks

Up to this point in the series, using nutritious drinks (vitamins) like Protein and Iron would add 10 EVs to a Pokemon's stat, although there was a limit of 100.

However, that limit has been increased, and the number of EVs a Pokemon can gain is now up to 252.
