Pokemon Sword and Shield Bad League Staff Member - How to Find Oleana's Staffer

Pokemon Sword and Shield Bad League Staff Member - How to Find Oleana's Staffer

In this guide, we'll show you how to find Oleana's bad league staff member in Pokemon Sword and Shield.

In the later stages of Pokemon Sword and Shield, you'll be tasked with finding someone that works for Oleana, who isn't exactly a good guy. In this Pokemon Sword and Shield Bad League Staff Member guide, we'll be walking you through tracking down the staff member as easily as possible in three different locations.

How to Find the Bad League Staff Member

After beating Hop in the Pokemon League, you'll be back outside with Piers, who you previously beat in Spikemuth. Before you can go anywhere though, Oleana turns up, and reveals that she's given the monorail key to one of her evil employees. You now need to catch this employee, who unfortunately looks exactly like the rest of Oleana's staff.

Bad Staff Member Location 1

From where you start in the square of Wyndon, go up. At the wall that runs around the square, you'll see the bad league staff member facing a wall. Select the dialog option to tell him you've already got the keys anyway, and he'll turn around, initiating a Pokemon battle with you.

You can find the staffer against the purple house. | Hirun Cryer/USG, Nintendo

Bad Staff Member Location 2

When you've beaten the bad league staff member and his two Pokemon, he'll run off. He's not gone far though, as he's stood by the couple just to the left of the large fountain in the middle of the square.

And then just to the left of the fountain. | Hirun Cryer/USG, Nintendo

Bad Staff Member Location 3

You'll have to find the staff member a third and final time. Just to the left of where you just fought the staffer, he's hiding in a telephone box. Interact with the red telephone box, and you'll have to fight the bad staff member one final time to complete this section.

Hirun Cryer is by far the most juvenile member of USgamer. He's so juvenile, that this is his first full-time job in the industry, unlike literally every other person featured on this page. He's written for The Guardian, Paste Magazine, and Kotaku, and he likes waking up when the sun rises and roaming the nearby woods with the bears and the wolves.
