How to get the Destiny Knot in Pokemon Sword and Shield
If you are a competitive Pokémon player, it is definitely worth exploring Pokémon Sword and Shield Destiny Knot. Once the Pokémon Sword and Shield wraps up the tale, this item will help you create more powerful Pokémon and become the best, like no one ever was. In this guide we are going to show you how to get Pokémon Sword and Shield Destiny Knots and teach you how to use them.
How to get Sword and Shield Destiny Knot in Pokemon
Destiny Knot’s fastest way in Pokemon Sword and Shield is to beat the game first. I know, I know, it takes a little time, but really you will only want to battle properly once, when your Pokémon are strong enough, and by the end of the game they definitely will!
Once you become the champion, earn 10 Battle Points by fighting there with the head of Battle Tower and your best team. Once that is completed, just head to Hammarlock and the city’s Pokémon Center. To the right of the Pokémart will be a female merchant you can talk to. He will also let you exchange Battle Points for a variety of reusable items, one of which is Destiny Knot.
If a friend has a bunch of Battle Points and doesn’t feel like buying one, then attach it to the Pokémon and send it, it might work too!
How to use Destiny Knot in Pokemon Sword and Shield
Now the general effect of Destiny Knot is that when you hold it it infects other Pokémon, but we are not here for this. In fact, the thing about Destiny Knot is that in Pokémon Nursery it means that Poke Parents can give 5 individual values to their offspring, which determine the figures in the child. If you are into breeding your Pokémon and all of the math and tomfoolery that comes with it, it will mean more to you.
You want to create a Pokémon that has maximum personal value, so by ensuring both of your parents (who you will breed to have the best value) are holding a destiny knot, you will ensure that the child is the most Good can be the most powerful in combat and war. This is a bit confusing and worth more research if interested, but it is shorthand. If you want to get into competitive breeding or improve your core team, it is worth grabbing a destiny knot or two.
