Watts Farming With Pokemon Dens
Den Farming is definitely more lucrative than the Rotom Rally. Towards the endgame, you can easily get 1000-2000W within 5 minutes.
Farm Until All Dens Have Been Depleted
Riding around the Wild Area and collecting all the Den Watts until you've exhausted them, & then finally swapping to the Rotom Rally as a last resort seems to be the best way to earn Watts!
More Raid Star Means More Watts
The amount of Watts you get from Pokemon Dens differs with the number of raid stars. See the table below for more details.
