Stow-on-Side Stadium is the town's official Gym. In Pokémon Sword, it is led by the Fighting-type expert Bea, while in Pokémon Shield, its leader is the Ghost-type expert Allister.

Ancient mural

At the northernmost point of the town is a large stone wall with a recreation of an ancient mural on it. During the game's story, it collapses due to the damage caused on in by Bede to reveal a hidden chamber containing statues of Zacian, Zamazenta, and the twin kings of ancient Galar.

Bargain shop

The bargain shop keeper will sell the player one item per day for PokémonDollar.png3,000 and reveal what he's going to be selling the next day. He'll also offer yesterday's bargain for PokémonDollar.png5,000 if it wasn't purchased.
