Now, there’s a catch here. As you can see in the screenshot up top, this vendor demands BPs as currency. How do you get BPs, aka Battle Points? By participating in battles in the Battle Tower in Wyndon. How do you unlock the Battle Tower? By beating the main story in Pokemon Sword & Shield. So, yeah; it’ll be a hot minute before you can purchase the Destiny Knot. Maybe you can find the Destiny Knot in the overworld somewhere, but if there is, we’ve missed it. If you know where to find it, please, do let us know in the comments.

The Destiny Knot will become important when you start breeding Pokemon. You need to give the Knot to a Pokemon that you’re planning to breed. If you do, their kid(s) will get a minimum of five of the combined 12 IV points from the parents. That’s a significant leg up compared to normal breeding. Combine it with breeding Egg Moves, and you can have some pretty devastating little critters at your disposal eventually.
