Watts (Japanese: ワット Watt) are a type of currency used in the pedometers Pokémon Pikachu, Pokémon Pikachu 2 GS, and the Pokéwalker, as well as the core series games Pokémon Sword and Shield. Watts are represented by the letter W (Japanese: w).

Pokémon Pikachu

In Pokémon Pikachu, 1 watt is earned for every 20 steps taken. Watts can be spent on gifts for Pikachu to increase its friendship, which unlocks additional games.

Pokémon Pikachu 2 GS

In Pokémon Pikachu 2 GS, Watts can be spent on gifts for Pikachu, or sent to Gold, Silver, and Crystal or other Pokémon Pikachu 2 GS games.

In order to send them to a Generation II game, they must be sent through the Mystery Gift feature. The Pokémon Pikachu 2 GS game selects the amount to be sent, and the player of the Game Boy Color game receives one of the following gifts depending on the numbers of Watts sent:

Item Watts
Eon Mail 1
Berry 100
Bitter Berry 200
Great Ball 300
Max Repel 400
Ether 500
MiracleBerry 600
Gold Berry 700
Elixer 800
Revive 900
Rare Candy 999


Watts can be spent on the Poké Radar and on the Dowsing Machine. It costs 10 w per use of the Poké Radar and 3 w per use of the Dowsing MCHN. When connecting to HeartGold or SoulSilver, all unspent Watts will be transferred to that game. These Watts are stored on the game card and unlock new Pokéwalker Routes when enough are collected.

Pokémon Sword and Shield

Reason: How is the amount of Watts from Brilliant Pokémon determined?

In Pokémon Sword and Shield, Watts can be collected in several ways:

  • Pokémon Dens yield Watts if their stones are glowing red; obtaining the Watts causes them to stop glowing. Dens will start to glow whenever all Pokémon Dens are reset, which happens whenever the date changes or there are no Max Raid Battles remaining.
    • If the Pokémon Den has an available Max Raid Battle, it yields 300 Watts (initially) or 2,000 Watts (after catching Eternatus).
    • If the Pokémon Den does not have an available Max Raid Battle, it yields 50 Watts (initially) or 200 Watts (after catching Eternatus).
  • Catching or defeating a Brilliant Pokémon yields some Watts.
  • Watts can be received after taking part in the Rotom Rally.
  • Digging Pa can dig up a large amount of Watts in exchange for seven Armorite Ores.


Watts can be spent at Watt Traders, who will each offer a type of Poké Ball, a Wishing Piece, as well as five different TRs in exchange for Watts. Watt Traders can also upgrade the Rotom Bike in exchange for Watts.

Watts can also be spent at the Digging Duo, who will dig for treasure in exchange for 500 W per treasure hunt.

In addition, Fishers and Hikers appear in various places throughout the Wild Area that sell the player an unspecified item for Watts.

In The Isle of Armor, Honey will ask for large amounts of Watts to incrementally add upgrades to the Master Dojo.
