The esteemed professor of Galar, Professor Magnolia, will help you on your journey as a Pokemon Trainer.

Bede, a Gym Challenger endorsed by Chairman Rose himself, will become one of your rivals in achieving the title of Galar Champion.
He holds pride in himself and will not let anyone stand in his way.
Another Gym Challenger, Marnie, aims to become Galar Champion, as she wishes to restore life into her hometown, fighting battles with her partner, Morpeko.

Born as the son of farmers, Milo grew close to grass-Type Pokemon and trained at a young age.
Because of his kind heart, he has difficulties going all-out on weaker Gym Challengers.

She is also Sonia's close friend. She also claims to be Milo's rival.
Kabu is a master of Fire-type Pokemon who was invited from the region of Hoenn.
He once came close to becoming League Champion. He is motivated to keep learning and training for as long as he lives.
Bea trained vigorously with Pokemon at a young age and is now Stow-on-Side's Gym Leader.
She is always seen to have a calm and serious face, but the truth is she does not want to show weakness.
Bea is exclusive to Pokemon Sword.
This mysterious Pokemon Trainer took the role of Gym Leader at a young age. Nobody has ever seen his face as he has never removed his mask in public.
He claims to have the ability to see deceased Ghost-type Pokemon after an accident he had when he was four.

After taking the role of Gym Leader for 70 years after her mother, Opal is now looking for a worthy Trainer to replace her.
She is the oldest Gym Leader in Galar and is called “the wizard” because of her techniques in battle.
Rock-type Pokemon are seen to be rough and relentless, but Gordie's fighting style is refined and graceful.
He is a rising star and many suspect that he will become the next League Champion.
Gordie is exclusive to Pokemon Sword.
A stoic and powerful Gym Leader, many Gym Challengers have difficulty getting the Circhester badge from Melony.
Because of her strict coaching, it is guaranteed that the Gym Trainers under her are strong as well.
Melony is exclusive to Pokemon Sword.
Even though Spikemuth does not have a Power Spot which will enable Pokemon to Dynamax, Piers cares deeply for his hometown.
A master of Dark-type Pokemon, he is also passionate about singing and songwriting and is well-renowned for that.
The strongest of all Gym Leaders, Raihan uses weather effects to control the stage. He could also easily become Galar's Champion, but defeating Leon is more important to him.
Aside from being the tamer of dragons, he also loves taking selfies.
As with all other Pokemon games, the game would not be complete without a villainous team.
Team Yell is Marnie's fan group, sabotaging all other Gym Challengers so Marnie can become Champion of the Galar Pokemon League.
Mustard, who was also previously a Champion, now runs the Pokemon Dojo. He was also the mentor of Champion Leon.
He will help you with your new adventure in the Isle of Armor.
Klara, the Poison-type user, appears in the Isle of Armor, which will be available in the Pokemon Sword Expansion Pass.
Avery, the Psychic-type user, appears in the Isle of Armor, which will be available in the Pokemon Shield Expansion Pass.
Peony is a man that you will encounter upon arriving in The Crown Tundra.
