Head Inside Wedgehurst Station

Head Inside Wedgehurst Station

Avery and Galarian Slowpoke can be found inside Wedgehurst Station. A short cutscene will play featuring Avery & Galarian Slowpoke the first time you enter the station.

(Shield Only)

Wedgehurst Station Is South Of The Poke Center

Wedgewurst Station is South of the Poke Center

You can find Wedgehurst Station right after passing Route 1. It's south of the Poke Center if you fly there.

Talk To Slowpoke Once It Appears

Talk to Slowpoke Once it Appears

You can initiate the Pokemon Battle with Slowpoke by talking to it after the cutscene. You will be prompted to start the battle before proceeding. This is your chance to catch it!

Requires Recent Update

You'll need to update the game first before Avery will appear in the Station. Make sure your game is up to date and download the necessary updates.

How to Update Sword and Shield

First thing you have to do is check if your game software is updated. Exit the application then start it again, you'll be prompted for an update. If not, check for updates in the game's system options!

Pokemon Team & How To Beat

Avery 1st Battle

Galarian Slowpoke Psychic

Both Pokemon on Avery's team share a type, so you should be able to steamroll them with a powerful enough Dark or Ghost type!

Avery's Team Has Grown


Just like Klara, Avery has brought more Pokemon to the fray this time around. All 3 are Psychic type, however, so basically any Ghost or Dark Pokemon you bring should be able to deal with them easily!

Sets Up A Weird Battlefield


Avery will set up Psychic Terrain immediately when battle starts. The main effects of this are that Psychic moves deal more damage, and that priority moves won't work! Be careful.

Also Dynamaxes Slowbro

Klara Will Dynamax Slowbro

Just like Klara, Avery will Dynamax his Galarian Slowbro. If you've brought a Dark or Ghost type Pokemon, you should be able to handle it easily. Just be careful if using a Ground type, as it knows a Water move!

Recommended Pokemon To Bring

Avery is somewhat of a one-trick-pony: all his Pokemon are Psychic and they're all weak to Ghost and Dark types. We highly recommend Dark type Pokemon, as they also happen to be immune to Psychic moves.
