Pokémon Camp is a brand new feature introduced in Pokémon Sword and Shield. It is the successor of Pokémon-Amie, Pokémon Refresh and Partner Play.


You can enjoy a Pokémon Camp almost anywhere anytime you’re exploring in the Galar region! If you ever feel like spending some time with the Pokémon in your party or cooking up a nice meal with them, then there’s no need to hesitate—in many cases, you can just set up camp right then and there!

You can enjoy a moment of relaxation and fun with the Pokémon in your party through Pokémon Camp! Watch your Pokémon closely as they have fun camping, and as they play together, you might discover a new side to them that you don’t normally get to see!

Just give a call to any Pokémon that’s far away, and it’ll happily come to you!

You can also play with your Pokémon while camping. There are several toys that your Pokémon will enjoy—you can play with them using a Poké Toy or a variety of bouncing balls! Take some time to play with your Pokémon and get to know them better!
