Pokemon Sword & Shield: Everything You Can Do In The Endgame | Postgame Secrets, Rewards & Rematches

Even after you complete the story in Pokémon Sword & Shield and become the Champion of the Galar Region, you’ll still find plenty of activities — and I’m not just talking about Max Raids or completing the Pokedex. After finishing the game, you’ll unlock a variety of quests, hidden rewards, and other changes to the game world when you go back to revisit.

There are new trainers to fight, new ways to unlock powerful upgrade enemies, and secret little bonuses hidden all over the place. Here, I’m going to document everything new you can do in the endgame. The quest is long, featuring lots of objectives and a pair of new villains you don’t want to miss. There’s even more secrets to find, so let’s go over a quick list of everything new you can find in Galar after becoming champion.
