In this Pokemon Sword and Shield evolutions chart, we'll be going over all the evolution forms that we've uncovered so far, including the levels at which each Pokemon evolves.

How to Evolve Pokemon Quickly

If you're looking to level up a specific Pokemon quickly, then you're in luck. Pokemon Sword and Shield have the 'Exp. Share' feature automatically turned on, which means that no matter which Pokemon you send out from your party to battle, all the other five Pokemon in your party will earn a smaller amount of XP when the battle is over and won.

This is really useful, because it allows you to level up weaker Pokemon without putting them in combat. Instead, you can send out one strong Pokemon into combat, while having as many weak Pokemon in the rest of your party as you want, and the weaker ones will get a nice chunk of XP at the end of the battle.

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.
