How does Fortune Teller Birthday Work in Pokemon Sword & Shield?

When you meet the fortune teller in Pokemon Sword & Shield, she will ask you to give her your birthday. It’s not a puzzle or anything like that, you can give her absolutely any date that you want. However, I do recommend that you give her your actual birthday, and you’ll understand why in a minute. Once the fortune teller knows your birthday, she’ll mumble some generic nonsense and go away.

You can be forgiven for completely forgetting about ever meeting this person. That is, until you go into a Pokemon Center on your birthday. Confetti is gonna fly, fireworks will go off, and a cake will appear behind the nurse. And you’ll get a little “Happy Birthday” message. I don’t think this does anything in particular gameplay-wise, but it is a nice little touch.

Where to Find Fortune Teller in Pokemon Sword & Shield?

To find the fortune teller in Pokemon Sword & Shield, go to Wedgehurst. As you cross the stone bridge into the town, head up the path going uphill. Turn right towards the Pokemon Center. The fortune teller will be waiting for you right next to the Center. Give her your date of birth, and enjoy your little surprise when your birthday rolls around.

Now, what I see in your horoscope is that you might be struggling with something else in this game. So, why don’t you check out some of our other Pokemon Sword & Shield guides.
