When you first arrive in Wedgehurst, you can talk to a woman outside the Pokemon Center. By doing so, you can set your birthday.
Once it has been set, you cannot change it anymore.
You can celebrate on the day of your birthday by visiting any Pokemon Center.
You cannot change the Trainer ID No. that you will get. The only way to change this is by resetting the game until you get the number you want.
When you first register as a Gym Challenger, you will be asked to give a number which will be displayed on your uniform.

One of the first choices you will make in the game is choosing your starter Pokemon. Once you choose your partner, you cannot get the other two Pokemon from the wild.
It is possible to get all three of the Galar starter Pokemon, and that is through breeding and trading!
See our guide on how to get all the starters.
How to Get All Starters
Depending on your game version, you will get Zacian or Zamazenta as the game's legendary Pokemon.
Additionally, like previous Pokemon games, once you have caught or defeated the Legendary Pokemon, you cannot encounter that Pokemon ever again. Be sure to save before battling the Pokemon, in case you accidentally knock it out!
There are NPCs in the game that you can trade Pokemon with.
If you want to get good IVs, save the game before exchanging your Pokemon until you get the Pokemon with the IVs you want.

If you want to get one with good IVs, you should save your game first before receiving the Pokemon since you can only get this once and you cannot breed Legendary Pokemon.
Unlike other Poke Balls that you can obtain elsewhere, the Dream Ball cannot be won as a Hall of Fame prize, so use it wisely.
