Pokémon Camp artwork

Pokémon Camp (Japanese: ポケモンキャンプ Pokémon Camp) is a feature introduced in Pokémon Sword and Shield that allows the player to care for their Pokémon in various ways. It is similar to Pokémon-Amie and Pokémon Refresh, but Pokémon Camp also introduces the option for the player to cook curry and visit other player's camps.

Pokémon Camp can be accessed from the menu except for when the player is on the water or challenging a Gym mission.

Features

The player interacting with Jellicent and Coalossal

Playing

The player can call, chat, and take out a toy to play with their Pokémon. Calling a Pokémon can awaken a sleeping Pokémon. Playing with a Pokémon will gradually lower its playfulness.

Playing with Pokémon can increase the Pokémon's friendship and its Experience Points. In the Wild Area, the player can earn Watts as well. The more a Pokémon is played with, the more friendship will be increased. Higher-level Pokémon will also earn more Experience Points. However, when a Pokémon is not feeling playful, no experience or friendship can be gained by playing.

There are eight available toys to play with: a Poké Toy and various toy balls.

Cooking

Main article: Curry

The player can cook curry, check their ingredients in the Bag, and check their Curry Dex. Cooking and eating curry will increase a Pokémon's sociability and restore a Pokémon's playfulness.

Tent color

The player can change the color of their tent to match one of the types of the player's lead party Pokémon by talking to the Camping King in East Lake Axewell outside of Motostoke.

Stats

Pokémon Camp uses three stats: friendship, playfulness, and sociability. Playfulness limits how much the player can do to increase the Pokémon's friendship. Sociability affects how much a Pokémon wants to interact with other Pokémon.

A Pokémon with a high level of friendship will gain certain bonuses in battle and will interact with its Trainer in unique ways.

  • At friendship level 1 and higher, a Pokémon may find items after cooking curry.
  • At friendship level 3 and higher, a Pokémon may endure attacks that could otherwise make it faint and survive with 1 HP.
  • At friendship level 4 and higher, a Pokémon will gain boosted experience from battles and may recover from status conditions at the end of a turn.
  • At friendship level 5, a Pokémon may avoid attacks and has an increased critical hit ratio.

The sociability stat is tracked per individual Pokémon, and ranges from 0 to 255. It is not reset when traded[1]. A Pokémon party with an Average Sociability Stat (taken by summing up the sociability of each individual member of the party and dividing by the number of Pokémon in the party) of at the least 200[2] can attract a wild Pokémon from the area in which the player is camping after cooking and eating curry. This Pokémon is pulled from the random encounter table of the location, regardless of the location (such as a cave) and the encounter rate is slightly flipped, where rarer Pokémon will be attracted more frequently than more common Pokémon in the area. The Pokémon will be captured in a Poké Ball from the player's inventory; if there isn't one present, the game will use a Great Ball, and if the player has no Poké Balls or Great Balls, then an Ultra Ball will be used.

Pokémon owned by NPCs and other players may also give the player an item after cooking curry when they have high sociability.

Visiting camps

The player can visit other player's camps in the Wild Area, the Isle of Armor and the Crown Tundra, as well as NPC camps on each of the routes in Galar except for Route 1 and Route 2. The player can talk and cook with other campers, as well as exchange League Cards with other players.

The NPC camps and their locations are listed below. Each of these camps also serve as Flying Taxi destinations. The Berries the NPCs use depend on the Berries the player chooses.
